Meta #31 - WTF is MyMeta 🤔
Check the chainlog & learn about MyMeta 🙃
Chainlog Week 55:
Hammad switches us to Vercel allowing for more dynamic change-making, implements imgix to make the site load faster & deploys the whole thing to a permanent domain - MyMeta is now live! 😱
We had another call with 3Box, Raid Guild & 1Hive to get updated on the latest from 3Box and hopefully follow up by joining forces on building MyMeta.
We also got two more developers join the MyMeta team; ECWireless & Damjan.
But we need moar. MOAR DEVELOPERS.
Luxumbra does a complete redesign of the wiki, with some help from Saimano in removing useless things & me in throwing a bunch of ideas up the wall. Made it look as slick as MyMeta; screenshots below.
Vanilla graduates our announcements channel into an actual announcements channel, allowing others to subscribe to it. Also makes the meta-announcements channel aka #📣-metaphone live, after adding DAOHaus & MetaMedia to a full list of guilds it is subscribed to - Raid Guild, 1Hive, LexDAO & MetaFactory.
I added a channel too #my-thing - for you to shill your startup, project or whatever hobby or skill you’re working on! 🤗
New podcast episode is live! This time we talked to Griff Green of Commons Stack on topics ranging from community-building, values in the Ethereum space and the broader crypto space drama.
Dan13 did good progress on the profile creation flow, which should soon be connected to the back-end. With MyMeta player profiles live, the next big goal is to build the Guild profiles.
With the wiki completely redesigned, its time to update the content! This Friday Community Gathering - other than welcoming & meeting new players - we’ll be doing a read-along through the wiki, checking up what’s outdated or missing.
Before getting into MyMeta, have some before & after screenshots of the wiki!
🤨So, WTF is MyMeta?!
MetaGame is sort of like LinkedIn, except not boring and nothing like LinkedIn.
MyMeta is your decentralized profile - to begin with.
Since what we’re trying to do here is build a new world, it makes sense that one of the first things we build is a place for you to show who you are.
A place to display skills & traits, your past work & affiliations, your play style & maybe even your NFT gallery.
A place other people can use to get in contact or contract with you.
Of course, this is Web3; MyMeta isn’t being built just for players of MetaGame.
MyMeta will be for anyone who wants a cool-looking decentralized profile page.
Here’s what the player cards look like:
And here’s what the MyMeta profile itself looks like:
Now onto what we want from it…
In the long run:
MyMeta shall be customizable as fuck in any way imaginable.
MyMeta shall work equally well for an NFT artists, a blogger, a smart contract developer &… a DAO 😱
The people shall be able to integrate smart contract interactions to use it as a dapp dashboard or a shop? Maybe.
To begin with:
What you see is what you get.
Implement the whole profile creation flow & whatever is missing.
Make it all work for guilds.
Mostly using React, TypeScript & GraphQL…
Ok what?! I’m telling you all of this because we need your help!
You can help us build it.
You can help us find builders.
Come on now, ping me @petheth and tell me you want to help. Shill this post or refer your builder-friend to us, just do something. No? Then at least sell me your Seeds.
Player of the week: luxumbra; made the wiki look hella hot
Join us 🐙
