It often takes too long to find the most helpful articles on Bible.org that will meet one's maturity level and that has the right balance of knowledge and application.
We need your help in rating the articles in these three areas (Maturity, Knowledge, Application). Will you join us as we try to make trusted biblical content more readily available?
This group is designed to help us rate the content of our Bible.org articles. This will allow our articles to be labeled in ways that will allow our users to more quickly find what they are looking for. The process has been designed we just need trusted volunteers to help us implement it!
If you have some time and are willing to be a part of this exciting effort to make our resources more easily available to all then please consider joining!
This group has been created for three reasons:
1. To promote the project of rating articles for easier access/use of them.
2. To find volunteers who would be willing to go through the training process and rate articles.
3. To allow a place for discussion among those who are rating articles to be able to help and encourage one another in the process of rating articles.
(see below for more information)
A convenient webform has been created which makes rating articles as simple as clicking a bubble. Likewise, guidelines have been written up to help make the decisions as one assesses an article. We will also be available to help train you into this process, and as more volunteers arrive in this group we will be able to help one another here.
Once we have rated the articles we will be able to help users more easily and quickly find articles that will better fit their needs on the maturity, knowledge, and application levels. There are a lot of wonderful resources on Bible.org, but unless people find the ones that are helpful for them they will not be able to benefit! Likewise if it is too difficult or unknown, people will often not make the effort. So let's make it easier for people to find what they need.
Any time that you have to offer is appreciated. Even just 2-5 hours a week, faithfully volunteered, could accomplish quite a bit over the long term!
Are you ready to help?
If this sounds like something you might be able to help us do, please fill out a volunteer application ( http://bible.org/book/volunteer-task-listings ), and in the "what are your skills" box please write in that you would like to help rating articles.
