Who's interested in a new Socratic on a different website?

This is just to have a place where everyone can put their names. So if you're interested, write an answer with your username. If you have any special skills that would be useful to building the new site, you can note those too.

There are several of these types of things in various other questions and comments, but I think it would be simpler to have it all in one spot.

Jul 1, 2018

Answer:

Hriman

Explanation:

I would like to continue answering math and science questions to the best of my ability.

Jul 1, 2018

Answer:

Rhys

Explanation:

I would love to continue answering questions, particularly mathematics. But also there we discussions about videos, if so I would be able to help in producing such content, in khan academy type style, if videos would be an idea to be incorporated in any way, and generally helping around the site.

Jul 1, 2018

Answer:

darshan (aka Darshan Senthil)

Explanation:

I don't think I have the skills/time to contribute much to the building of the site itself, but I'm happy to continue answering questions in all math ranging from basic algebra to multivariable calculus/differential equations, as well as in the basic sciences (chem, bio, physics).

I also have a large arsenal of math videos on YouTube, and will have more coming in the Fall.

I would like to participate as well.

Jul 2, 2018

Answer:

Just NickTheTurtle

Explanation:

Math. Physics, Chemistry

Also programming and designing for a new website, though it might have to be later, since we should settle down first, so to speak!

Jul 2, 2018

Answer:

Jacobi J.

Explanation:

I'm a high school student who enjoys helping people, so if we can continue the "Socratic spirit" and carry it onto another site, I'm all in!

I'm no expert by any means, but I can assist in chemistry, economics and many areas in math.

Hope this helps!

Jul 2, 2018

Answer:

Jacob T.

Explanation:

I can help writing and reviewing answers to questions in Calculus and High School Chemistry. I’ve set up servers on command lines before so I might also help setting up the new website.

Jul 2, 2018

Answer:

Michael-2

Explanation:

Jul 2, 2018

Answer:

Lucy

Explanation:

I can help with maths, anatomy and physiology, science (chemistry, biology, physics)

Jul 2, 2018

Answer:

KillerBunny

Explanation:

I can help with math at - hopefully - any level.

Also, since I saw many people posting their "extra skills" (which is something I'd love to see!), I can help with the italian translation of the site, as I am from Rome, and I know a thing or two about music (singing expecially) and programming

Jul 2, 2018

I'd love to continue answering questions for people when I can, but I'm useless re the website!

Jul 2, 2018

Answer:

I am in!

Explanation:

I will edit my username into the answer pinned to the top when I get a chance (it's busy now), but here is an idea I have not seen discussed:

I suggest that those controlling Socratic be asked if a splinter group (us) could take over maintenance of the website that we have been contributing to. Call it Socratic-Classic! There would probably be technical hurdles that I can't foresee. But surely less than starting from scratch.

Answer:

A suggestion: We can always use QuestionCove, if it's too much hassle and/or there are financial issues, to continue the Q&A tradition. I am friends with the founder and he gave me the green light to spread the word about his site.

What I can tutor:
- Maths (up to calculus)
- English (grammar/writing)
- Sciences (general: psychology, biology)
- History (general, region/period-specific, and Music!)
- Statistics (rusty!)

Explanation:

Restating a comment so people can see this:

I think Slack would be a viable option, I've got friends from another Q&A site that regularly meet on there for site development.

Unless my bio is lying, I believe I tutor maths up to calculus, basic grammar/writing, psychology, and history. :p ( oh, and statistics + biology )

UPDATES AND EDITS

First: Please reach out to @z-15 (Zhirou) for a Slack invite link if you would like to join the team! :)

Also, I know of some sites that use a similar Q&A format to Socratic. If needed, I will update this with said sites.

Secondly: I have some ideas for the new site's name!

  • Plato/Aristotle/Xenophon (all students of Socrates, which Socratic is named after)
  • Athenian
    (I mean, Socrates is/was from Athens.)
  • Inquisitv ("Inquisitr" is taken)
    (from "inquisitive")
  • #\color(indianred)(\text(Suggestion))# (from Kevin B ) "Socratic 2"
    (my suggestion: #\color(steelblue)(\text(Socratic))^(\color(indianred)(2))#)
  • #\color(indianred)(\text(Suggestion))# (from CountryGirl) "Athena" or "Minerva"
    (Greek/Roman goddess of wisdom)
  • #\color(indianred)(\text(Suggestion))# (from t0hierry) "Hypatia"
    (see comments for information)

if anyone else has suggestions, feel free to edit this post! Just leaving it out here for everyone to add to. :-D

Jul 2, 2018

Answer:

Socratic can't be replaced

Explanation:

We can't and shouldn't even try to replace Socratic. For a start they had some $6 million to start with. Also, helping kids with there homework will never make money. They don't even have credit cards!

Socratic is unique. It has some great points like featured answers. It had major flaws such as no control over duplicate questions and searching.

Socratic also has a very flawed business model.

So, no we shouldn't try and replace Socratic on a new website. We should build a far superior business model!

Jul 3, 2018

Answer:

Zhirou.

Explanation:

I would primarily be able to answer high school Chemistry and Biology questions!

As for website development—I'm not the best at coding, but I like to think I have an eye for design; I'm pretty proficient with Photoshop, Illustrator, and have designed a couple of small websites before. :)

Jul 3, 2018

Answer:

Abhishek K.

Explanation:

Haven't got much skills though I would like to help with Maths especially trigonometry.

Jul 4, 2018

Answer:

Martin M

Explanation:

I can answer basic science stuff
Also all kinds of chemistry questions.

I edit videos in my spare time (if I got any left) so I might be able to contribute to that as well.

Jul 8, 2018

Answer:

Evan

Explanation:

I am able to help in all the basic subjects that Socratic currently presents with. I know a bit about graphic designing, unfortunately, nothing about coding.

Since making a replica of Socratic is hard, how about we crowdsource and get funding to start a forum. Then we slowly progress to become what it is now. We will have to appoint leaders, just like a real company would so the integrity will not crumble.

Jul 10, 2018

Answer:

Ryan

Explanation:

I should be able to deal with high-school level maths questions, and maybe some at a slightly higher level; also English questions; and definitely music theory questions (if that becomes an option in future)

Definitely interested in keeping something like Socratic going!!

Please count me :) in for everything related to bio.
