People use the Forum for many reasons. One of the most important is asking for help, feedback, information, or anything else that might help them to do more good.  

In this post, we want to encourage everyone to post more requests on the forum and use the Requests (Open) [? · GW], Get Involved [? · GW], and other such tags.

Type of requests

One way the Forum supports requests is with question posts [? · GW]. In 2020, users published about one question per day, and almost all of them got at least one answer.

There are four other ways of making requests which use tags [? · GW]:

How to write a good request

How to bolster the request system

And of course, help the OP and fulfill the request if you're in a good position to do so! 

If you are giving feedback, consider reading Giving and Receiving Feedback [EA · GW] first.

Conclusion

We hope that the Forum continues to develop as a platform where EAs don't just discuss issues, but also help each other. By more effectively directing helpful people to where their skills are needed, we can strengthen the community as a whole.
