Rewarding Helpfulness - New Community Grant Pot

Rewarding Helpfulness - New Community Research Grant Pot

Hey Prolificos,

We’re gearing up to offer another round of research grants. And, we’d also like to reward you for helpful actions you do in the community.

Here’s the deal: we’d love to kickstart the networking parts of our forum, and reward helpful actions in our community. So, we’re introducing a new points system.

For every helpful action you take, the community will earn points. As the points accumulate, we’ll add money into our community grant pot which you’ll be in charge of distributing later next year.

Helpful Actions & Points

Introduce Yourself (10 pts)

  1. Find your group chat
  2. Introduce yourself in the ‘Intros’ thread, using this template:
    • Your name & institution/company
    • What you’d like to get from the community i.e. advice on PhD applications
    • What you could give to the community i.e. data sets from your research

Add to Our Community Libraries (5 pts)
