What can I offer?

There are two questions you should ask yourself when deciding whether to offer something:

If you answered “yes” to both questions, go ahead! If you didn't, try to come up with something else.

How much does it cost?

Nothing! Everything is free.

Who is the site for?

The site is aimed at effective altuists— people who want to help others in the most effective ways possible.

What data about me do you store?

When you send someone an offer or request, we store only the metadata (e.g., who sent it, when it was sent), not the message itself. When you reply to a message someone sent you regarding an offer or request you placed on the site, your response goes directly to the recipient, so we don't have any record of it at all.

How do I add formatting my offers and requests?

You can use Markdown to add links, bulleted lists, and other formatting to your offers, requests, and profile.

How can I help?

Thanks for asking! There are several ways:

What if I don't have anything to offer?

Everybody has something! But if you don't, you're still welcome to use the site.

That's a great option for a lot of things. If you need nourishment, visit the supermarket; if you need medical care, see your doctor. But there are several reasons you might consider Skillshare.im instead:

Why isn't my profile picture showing?

If you didn't sign in with Facebook, you'll need use Gravatar to display a profile picture. Go to Gravatar, create an account (using the same e-mail address you used on Skillshare.im), and upload your picture there.

I have a suggestion for the site.

Great! Let us know.
