We’ll ship soon after LessWrong does. When I last discussed with them, they were hoping to ship this quarter. The full version has collaborative editing features, but they might ship a non-collaborative version sooner.
I am so sad we don’t support tables. Sorry about your time taking screenshots.
This post should win an award for how long it’s had active comments coming in
My experience with it is confined to the SF tech world, where it is extremely common. Though usually it is offered to employees of the hiring company only. Maybe you could limit it to a group of people you then email about it.
It appears we’ve fixed this.
Have you considered offering a referral bonus to anyone bringing your attention to a candidate you hadn’t considered?
Now on a massive tangent, but maybe you could offer to subsidize people buying tutoring from Wyzant?
You could write that the username is deliberately anonymous in your Forum bio.
We’ve been experiencing intermittent outages recently. Multiple possible causes and fixes have not turned out to fix it, so we’re still working on it. If you see an error saying:”503 Service Unavailable: No healthy endpoints to handle the request. [...]”Try refreshing, or waiting 30 seconds and then refreshing; they’re very transient errors.Our apologies for the disruption.
I really like this (I think you could make it top level if you wanted). I think these of these are cases of multiple levels of cooperation. If you’re part of an organization that wants to be uncooperative (and you can’t leave cooperatively), then you’re going to be uncooperative with one of them.
Hi, thanks for the comments.
I don’t know if there is a designated place to leave comments about the EA Forum
Your shortform works if you like. Also:
• Use the Intercom box in the bottom right part of your screen ↘️
• Email Aaron or me (the CEA staff who work on the Forum)
• Send Aaron or me a private message on the Forum
The ‘Community Favorites’ section keeps listing the same posts over and over again. I don’t see the point of having a prominent list of favorite posts in the home page that changes so little. I suggest expanding the list considerably so that regular visitors can still expect to see novel posts every time they visit the homepage.
I basically agree with this. For context, I view it as a way to discover posts that you missed if you took a break from the Forum for a while. If you have seen the same ones over and over, it’s no longer serving that purpose. I like Oli’s suggestion about hiding posts you’ve seen N times; you could also do a weighted randomization of the posts. This feature isn’t a development priority for the Forum right now, but if LessWrong makes it we’ll port it. It also might make it to the docket after our current batch of improvements.
I’m donating my entire giving to the Donor Lottery. If I win I can spend much more time researching and non-profits will be able to devote more resources to answering my questions. Given these advantages, and the fact that I am variance neutral, I believe this makes the Donor Lottery strictly better than my other options.
Disclosure: I worked to set up the first version of CEA’s Donor Lottery before I switched full time to the Forum, and continue to work for CEA, which still runs it. This was the project that CEA pitched me that helped convince me to work here though, so I’d say my enthusiasm for donor lotteries predates my conflict of interest.
Just to clarify, you know your self-votes don’t get you karma?
Currently: message Aaron Gertler and ask.
For supporting evidence, see this study:
Which I’ll quote Robin Hanson’s quote of
income effects in preferences, in which leisure becomes more valuable when income rises, … income effects are the main driving force behind the decline of average hours worked with GDP per capita.
I don’t know the history of the term or its relationship to Copernicus, but I can say how my forgotten source defined it. Suppose you want to ask, “How long will my car run?” Suppose it’s a weird car that has a different engine and manufacturer than other cars, so those cars aren’t much help. One place you could start is with how long it’s currently be running for. This is based on the prior that you’re observing it on average halfway through its life. If it’s been running for 6 months so far, you would guess 1 year. There surely exists a more rigorous definition than this, but that’s the gist.
Hi, I saw this and asked on our slack about it. These was a leftover figures from when the post was in draft and the grants weren’t finalized; someone’s now fixed it. If you see anything else wrong, feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Like a community wiki on stackexchange?
What do you mean by that?
I’m interested in the answer to this question; I was just discussing it when discussing the EA Forum on a team retreat. I’m interested in the creation of reference documents in general. Something I was thinking about very brainstorm-y, no plans to implement in the near term) was to add a type of post to the EA Forum that allowed either direct editing or inline suggestions by not-the-author.
Wait I missed a chance to link to my favorite part of the lottery UI – check out this beautiful visualization: https://app.effectivealtruism.org/lotteries/63715163508812
