How you can help develop this page

If you agree with the policies and goals of "Treasures of the Internet", there are a number of ways so that you can help develop the site -- irrespective of your age, sex, ethnic group, or whatever status -- provided you adhere to the restrictions and policies discussed herein.

You can become a:

  1. Page Contributor
    We encourage you to capitalize on your unique background to develop specific sites that are desired in "Treasures of the Internet". Some of the topics we are interested with are included in each of the "letters" above.

  2. Site Developer
    The topics listed in each of the "letters" are not exhaustive. If there are topics that you want to develop further, please let us know by sending a synopsis of your idea.

    Even if the topic you are interested with is already in existence, you can do a make over, if you think you can add significantly to the information in an existing page. Alternatively, you may wish to get in touch with the existing contributor(s) and editor(s) so that you can collaborate to make the page even better and/or updated regularly.

    Please note however that, in the interest of fairness, previous contributors to a page will be cited in the "contributors" section.

  3. Member of the Education Brigade
    Self-education is one area where the internet can be of great help. If you are a teacher or yearn to be an "informal educator", we encourage you to join the education brigade and develop plans that will allow a novice visitor to learn the basics and eventually become an expert on a topic. Primarily because of this objective in mind, we are very selective, rather than comprehensive in the links included here.

    The topics can have academic relevance, e.g., arts appreciation, literature, music appreciation, etc. However, we are interested also with topics that have practical use, referred to here as "how to's...". For example, "How to create a webpage.", "How to cook 'sinigang'", etc.

  4. Page Artist and Photographer
    As you can see, the layout and the artistic quality of the page can lend itself to a good make-over. Before you make any suggestions however, please read the rationale for the current layout chosen.

  5. Adviser/Expert Consultant
    Many individuals have spent great efforts to develop sites that contain quite a great deal of information. The educational use of such site will improve greatly, if only experts would lend their educated "knowledge" in the field. So, if you are in the academe or have scholarly grasp of any area -- but do not have time or expertise to develop a page -- you will still be able to contribute significantly to the development of a page by becoming a "constructive critic", i.e. make suggestions, guide the primary contributors to references that they may have missed, etc.

  6. Computer Expert
    For some reason, we have accepted defective products from many computer software and hardware companies and do not even demand good customer service. More recently, even the manuals are missing these days

    Until we find a way to demand and expect a minimum quality of service, we have to find a way to deal with the exasperating aspects when we cannot make a software work or learn what to do when a computer crashes.

    So, if you have any expertise in computer software or hardware, help us develop "how to's..." about any aspect computers and software.

  7. Community Leader
    One of my greatest peeves during internet search includes the "page not found" when you click on a linked site. We need volunteers therefore who will be vigilant to ensure that specific pages of interest will have up-to-date links eliminating obsolete ones and suggesting alternative sites that would conform to the policies and goals of the site.

  8. Ombudsman
    People who advocate for certain causes sometimes can have a "blind spot". An "Ombudsman" would be a welcome addition to advise us and ensure that the site will not violate ethical rules.

  9. Sponsor
    One of the goals of this page is to tap on the "volunteer spirit" of every human being. However, maintaining a page like the one we hope to create will require quite a significant amount of funding, to cover salaries of support staff and operational expenses, if it is to succeed. So, if you happen to like what we are doing and have the means to be generous, consider contributing to this project. [If you are ready to do so, please notify us well in advance so that we can set up the mechanism to accept your contribution (with proper tax deduction).]
