Community is a Living Organism - contribute to it
« on: February 26, 2012, 12:30:15 am »

* * *
At EvilZone, new accounts are created daily, however it is much more rare to welcome a new member in to the community.

A community is a living organism, and just like any other living thing it can grow, evolve, adapt, reproduce or even die. An account is just an entry in the database. It can be used as a tool through which a member can act in the community, or it can just exist and be forgoten eventually turning into a dead cell of the organism. A member is a part of a community: like a cell, a tissue, or even an organ to an animal. Without cells or organs an animal can not be alive. In the same way, without  members a community is not alive - without members it is just a mix of code, text and graphics.

Do not become a dead cell - an account without any personality, actions or any signs of life. Be a member. A member that contributes to the rest of the organism. A member that is healthy, active, and beneficial in relation to the community. This will lead to growth and positive evolution.
* * *

There are many ways in which anyone can contribute. Anyone, including you.

Have you learned or discovered something interesting? Tell the community about it. Do you have a question about something specific? Ask and hence provide an oportunity for others to share their knowledge with you and other members of the community who will read the thread you have started. Found a good eBook online or somewhere deep in your hard drive? Share it. Someone else might find it usefull. Noticed an area of the community that could be improved or evolved into a new dimention? Give the feedback. Did you just come up with an insane idea for a project but need others to help you materialize it? Just say so. Do you enjoy crafting countless lines of code? Write a usefull piece of code for everyone to use or learn from.

As you can see it is very easy to come up with random examples of ways in which you can contribute and be an active member. It should be obvious and self explanitory.

I encourage you to come out of the spectators' area and enter in to the ring of participators. However, never forget that quality is more important than quantity. In an organism, some cells might be corrupt (virus infected cells). They will multiply and cause harm to the organism, and unless healed or removed from the organism, they will make it sick or might even kill it. Do everything you can to not become a corrupt cell.

That's a great idea, thought you have to give the time for newbies to get some bases before they are able to share their discoveries. In the long run, it would be great to be part of such a community.

Nice post, I found this forum a little while ago and it's one of the only ones with good information. I can't contribute a lot of good shit yet but that will come later. The people on here are really helpfull if you are willing to learn new stuff. And they have a lot of knowledge, not like on hackforums that's full of useless info/people trying to make a buck out of our ignorance and you can't forget the tons of skidz & backdoorz. 

So thanks to Evilzone and keep it up

You are welcome :) We all came here with zero contribution, but whatever you take in knowledge later on you can pass it on the same way we did to you.
