is a tricky feature to notice here.
If you go to a community and then add a message or a comment,
then the system automatically adds a hashtag corresponding to
the community to the text box that it opens for your message.
You can remove the hashtag if you prefer, but the notion is that
if you are writing a message while you are at a community, then
that message probably should be marked as of interest to that
community. For instance, if you go the @UN_goals community and
click "Add my voice" the edit box that opens will have
"#UN_goals" already in it.
you are a member of a community,
you can easily select that community on the right of the forum
list. But notice that you can also select the hashtag that
corresponds to the community. There is a good reason for this
dual selection for the same community. To use @UN_goals again as
an example, members of the @UN_goals community are also members
of other communities, so if you select only @UN_goals, then the
list will show messages that may not be of direct interest to
@UN_goals members. So if you select both @UN_goals and
#UN_goals, then you will get a list of messages written by
@UN_goals members and meant to be of interest to @UN_goals
Together & Apart button on the left
takes you to a list of collective conversations between
communities. Together & Apart is a “both/and”
strategy designed to overcome the us-vs-them mindset that makes
international cooperation on global issues so difficult. How
does it work? Voting on messages gives each participating
community a collective voice of its own. For every T&A
conversation, there will be a monthly Together phase followed by
an Apart phase. Winning messages for both phases will be
available online and emailed to the participants. In the
Together phase, messages from all participating communities are
mixed together and voted on by everyone. In the Apart phase,
messages are elected separately by each community.
to realize about Together & Apart:
When you go to a community that is part of a T&A
conversation, you are taken to the conversation with the
community as your “perspective”. If you want to go
to the community outside of the conversation, use the “Leave
Conversation” button at the top right of the page.
