Getting Started: Getting Started


Congratulations you are the very first members of our new community platform dedicated to create more peace, kindness and happiness in the world.

Its a pretty big place and we’re still finalising some core navigation components so its best to explore in your own time.

This category is for you and your colleagues in the Prequel Wave, joining in before we’re even ready for Alpha testing. As you’re the 1st here you can define pretty any role you want for yourself in this community.

This ‘Prequel Wave’ category is for you all. Its dedicated to your experience the community and platform, and to help support each other. If you’d like support from a more experienced member use the @Welcome tag in a comment anywhere.

1st steps to find your way

  • Read the community values if you haven’t already and check this is the community you want to be part of
  • Introduce yourself in the Introductions thread, including any skills you have, or want to learn, that you’d like to contribute to the mission.
  • Download the Android or iOS app. (the iOS one needs to be pointed at
  • Post yourself onto the Happiness Map by clicking ‘Gather’ if you’d like others nearby to be able to invite you to go create kindness together (we recommend using a landmark nearby rather than your actual address)
  • This site isn’t complete yet and you will get lost so have a look through the finding your way around guide
  • Give other members hearts, positivity and encouragement if their contributing is a positive step to the the overall mission of creating more kindness, peace and well-being in the world.
  • Any general feedback you have can go here
  • Report anything that doesn’t work as expected here. A lot of the things you find will already be on the list to fix, but its ok to nag the dev team to get onto it :grinning:
  • Join our Telegram if you use it for general chat around the project (and in case the platform hits a tech issue and goes down for a bit)
  • If/when you get lost use the ‘Local’ or ‘Global’ tab in the header to reorient

Getting More Involved

This platform is focused on its mission to create more kindness, peace and well-being in the world, so you will find it very task and action focused

  • If you’d like to get involved in building click on ‘Global’ and pick a category you’d like to contribute to. Follow the Getting Started Guide in the banner of that category.
  • Write a post asking what needs building. If there is no-one active there @tag Andy at Focallocal and we’ll discuss what together what can be done to contribute to our shared mission.
