    @acquaintance Acquaintance Hello everyone! I would be blessed and honored to become a Founder for International Relations. International Relations is a big topic that is very important. On Socratic, It would cover the significant events and deals being made all the time by countries worldwide. To share this information and help people who are interested or those who need help with this subject, International Relations needs to be here. If there is one thing I'm good at, it's helping people. And with my knowledge of International relations and my experience with Model United Nations and research on such affairs, I can gladly aid curious Socratic members and spread important global information that is crucial to be aware of. Aside form the sheer importance of the topic, founding International Relations would be a large step forward in expanding Socratic's horizons. It's a win-win situation. Socratic develops, and people get more answers from a wider range of subjects. Now, let's make our ifs into whens, and our mights into wills. Let's broaden the horizon. I would be pleased to be a founder since my only intentions on Socratic are as follows: 1.) more people get informed 2.) Socratic grows. So, once again, allow me to have the honor of being a founder. I will not let Socratic down, you have my word.

How are new subjects launched?

By the community! (With support from the Socratic team.) To launch a subject on Socratic, you need a founding team of eight people who are committed to building and supporting the subject through its critical early days.

Once eight founders have signed up, you will form a team that collaborates to grow and nurture the subject using a live version of the site. You will write the subject's first featured answers and recruit other contributors. Most important, you will lead by example by participating often and encouraging others to do the same.

Once the founding team has built a foundation of helpful answers and a healthy community of supporters, the subject will graduate, meaning it will join the ranks as a designated Socratic learning resource. We'll also design a beautiful subject badge to make it official!

Who can be a subject founder?

Anyone who knows a lot about International Relations can become a founder. Why? The Socratic community values passion, diversity of opinions, and commitment over credentials.

Alongside your knowledge, your passion to share and spread International Relations with students everywhere should be your driving force. This is what will help your subject succeed!

Why should I become a founder?
  • Be one of eight people building a shared resource that will reach more than a million students every month. Now that's legacy.
  • Connect and collaborate with brilliant people around the world who share your passion. Find your tribe.
  • Earn credibility and status, online and off. Add it to your resume! Founding a subject will keep you sharp, and can even help in your professional life.
  • Have fun. Building something you're proud of feels pretty darn good.
When I sign up to be a founder, what am I committing to? I'm not sure I have time.

New subjects need a foundation of helpful answers and, most important, continuous participation from passionate folks. As a founder, you will:

  • Ensure that your founding team creates at least 20 featured answers that represent that very best in your subject
  • Participate often and encourage other team members, so that you meet your shared goal of high activity days (days on which 8 or more people contribute)

No matter who you are, life is busy and unpredictable. That's why there are no individual or time-based requirements for subject founders. You can contribute to your shared goals anytime, from anywhere - so long as you make an active effort to support the team and push the subject forward.

Can I invite friends to be founders?

If you know someone who would be a great founder for a new subject on Socratic, you can — and should! — invite that person by sharing the link to this page with them, and encouraging them to sign up.

Inviting a friend to join you on the founding team likely means working with someone you already respect, which'll help establish trust amongst the team early on. Trust = better outcomes and more fun.

I would love to see International Relations on Socratic! Can I get involved without becoming a founder?

Yes! To help get International Relations launched on Socratic, you can:

  • Recruit others (know a potential founder?) and spread the word (share links with interested friends or online groups you're part of)
  • Contribute early answers — anyone can write answers, even if you're not a founder
  • Ask some of the first questions (if you're studying this subject or want to learn about it)
  • Get to know the founders and chime in with support and encouragement
