Ladies/gentlemen/cthulhoid spawn of the Nxt/Ardor community:

As you may have seen, we've been  making some moves with marketing for Nxt over the last few weeks, and things are going pretty well........as a next step I'm here to announce the 1st phase of the Nxt/Ardor Bounty Campaign.  This will be the first step in professionalising and improving our marketing materials and creating real, accessible resources for the community to use and grow with.

First thing we need to do: we need people to write the folllowing 5 articles/guides that need to be created or improved:

1. A technical FAQ for the Nxt client software, the NRS. All the things that can go wrong, and how to fix them.
We have well over 100 support calls booked on the helpdesk, with their solutions, so that will provide a starting point: https://nxt.org/support/
I'll be getting a dump of the helpdesk questions soon, so in theory this FAQ will really only need editing and organising.

2. A Layman's guide to both Nxt and Ardor. This should include basic information about both systems, and FAQs like: how does snapshotting work.
Lots of basic information, together with a few FAQs, this piece will need to be written from the ground up, though we do have quite a lot of information lying around in various places.

Lastly, a long time ago I created a set of starters guides to Nxt installation and using the NRS client. They were written for NRS 1.7.4, but we need them to be updated to 1.9.2.
All available from: https://nxt.org/download/
These guides need to be updated and improved, or even completely replaced, if you're feeling ambitious.

3. http://nxt.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/Win32_Nxt_Startersguide.pdf

4. http://nxt.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/Win64_NXT_StartersGuide.pdf

5. http://nxt.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/Client_NXT_StartersGuide.pdf

So, if you're ready to earn some NXT and contribute to the community let me know....... 8)
There will be a bounty of around 5000 NXT per article or guide, get in touch with me first if you'd like to work on any of these.

We will be announcing more bounties for articles and content over the next months, so if anyone is looking for regular writing work in exchange for NXT bounties....come on down!

I have begun a guide and have a basic shell for NXT. I have also the beginning of powerpoint presentation (primarily a theme) for Ardor. Before i get too carried away, I would like to send a copy of both and if it is acceptable to continue the process. I believe I'm off to a good start. who shall i email?

@joebitcoin: best people to send marketing stuff like that to will be either me:
dave@nxtfoundation.org
or Damelon:
bas@nxtfoundation.org

@nouspersisterons: we're going to need QA work for Ardor, that's for sure. I'd suggest sending me (see above mail addy) a copy of your CV.
Don't care about personal info, but just your professional experience. I can then pass that on to the core devs, see what they think.
We may also have some work to do on the FAQs, I'll be in touch on that.

Nice to meet you guys, and thanks for stepping up.
BTW, get your asses on to Slack:

@evildave - absolutely. I'll prep that and send to you asap. I'm excited to work on this and QA for Ardor would be great and I'd love to do it! Sending shortly...

NP

Modification: My CV and most personal items are on a flash drive that didn't make it to work with me today...I'll send this evening

Hi, Dave,

After being flattered about my shorter writings about Nxt, I've volunteered to write a full-length "biography" of it. Just so everyone knows, I'm starting off by asking the folks here to drop their takes on what Nxt means to them:

https://nxtforum.org/general-discussion/what-does-nxt-mean-to-you/

Once I get a sense of how to present Nxt, I'll start forum-diving & banging away at the keys.
In another universe, I would have stuck to blogging...

We should realise a video like this, with some external journalist. I's always better to see faces. We already have a foundation and several entrepreneurs. Our remittance usecase could be some member from Latin America. From Venezuela would be perfect...
