I think many people are wondering what they should do to most effectively support bitcoin and secure its successful future. It would help to have this explained somewhere visibly. I believe the best thing everybody can do is to offer services and goods for bitcoins, that's what makes a currency useful, an ability to exchange it for as much diverse spectrum of what one might want as possible. It's also an investment as with every new thing that can be bought for bitcoins the value of bitcoins themselves rises.

This can take many forms, it could be game (items for BTCs), support forum (BTCs as reward), micro-donations ... anything, but I think it's best to start with the virtual stuff ... or not Smiley creativity is key ...

There's already http://www.bitcoin.org/wiki/doku.php?id=how_to_help linked on the front page of the wiki.

Ah, I saw that already and forgot  Roll Eyes

But it's still buried in the wiki (which is not linked from the main page) and does not contain the most important point IMO, that is *use bitcoins* to provide a service (good). If there is nothing to buy for bitcoins there is no incentive to use them.

Thanks

Can we maybe add 'Wiki' to the list of things on that right hand menu?
Even though it (currently) goes to the same place as Documentation, it is a different concept.

I added "How to help Bitcoin" to the FAQ.

I don't think it matters very much if the sidebar link says "Documentation" or "Wiki". Or does it?

I keep going to the homepage and wondering where the wiki link is.

Why can't it have both?
