How to save NotePD or does it need Saving?
Saw the post from @eyegor (but not the original challenge???) Figured I'd take a crack at it...
From my POV, there's great value to writing lists, and having a 'public' place to do so, with a 'streak' counter, keeps me doing it. I'll also do private lists for personal / work things, but do try hard to be public.
How can NotePD be improved and use maximized?
1. A List of Lists
Provide access to a list of list titles, ranked perhaps by number of readers, topic, etc. for folks who get stuck. I'll take the time to read the feed to find something when I'm stuck, but a "nudge" list would get more folks doing lists.
2. Drop Non-Users
Give users a period of time (60 to 90 days, perhaps), then after a warning or two, close their account if they don't post. Allow for a hiatus if / when planned, but "make" people post.
3. More Real James
@JamesAltucher hasn't posted in a bit. Its wonderful that he provides this vehicle for us. However, part of why people start / stay is getting the benefit of his involvement and feedback. AI James is cool, but having the real deal makes a difference.
4. Other Leaders / Influencers
Are there others here? Can there be? Would it generate more interest? Depends on who, of course...
5. Feed By Area of Expertise
Give folks the opportunity to identify their area(s) of expertise and to customize their feed to prioritize the areas they are experts in and/or want to learn more about. I'd like to know who is in the non-profit / NGO field and be able to see their posts more than posts
6. Subgroups Based On Expertise / Interest
Would having more focus on areas of personal / professional interest keep people in and involved?
7. More Data
Seeing a variety of data on who's posting, what they're posting about, etc. might keep people interested.
8. Money Issues
Would I pay to continue? Maybe. Perhaps, keep it free for regular posters, charge for those who don't meet minimum number of posts. Motivation to post...?
Also, maybe have a vehicle to optionally donate to folks whose lists you appreciate and benefit by.
