  1. Timer to optimize time spent on website

    Make the message immediately tangible — show a timer indicating average time spent by a visitor and challenge the visitor to use that time optimally. "You're going to spend 60 seconds on this website - what should you read?" — focus on funneling them via low-effort questions and cues towards key articles, information, and discovering what will engage and interest them

  3. Promote "Hypothes.is" conversations on the podcast transcripts to get an interesting dialogue going

    A good way to have an open dialogue on the concepts discussed in the podcast:

    The Hypothes.is tool and browser plugin allows you to comment and share comments directly on any page, referring to specific text on the page (and loads of cool features).

    (I've no stake in the nonprofit Hypothes.is group, I just think it's a great tool.)

    As an example I started a conversation on the Chalmers podcast transcript https://t.co/osJmCAsQig?amp=1. I tagged all my comments with "80kdiscussions" so you can look these all up here: https://hypothes.is/users/daaronr?q=tag%3A80kdiscussions

    Can you promote this to users and on Twitter? I think…

  10. broken link

    Found a broken link on this page: https://80000hours.org/career-reviews/tech-entrepreneurship/

    The link with the text "You might also like to read about our approach to rating careers" leads to an outdated page.

  12. Community College and Degree Reviews

    Hello 80,000 Hours,

    I'm Jacob. I am a community college student who constantly reads through your works to help myself decided on my educational outputs and career ideas. I wanted to make two suggestions.

    One, could 80,000 post a review on community college in their blog? The pros, cons, and 80,000 Hours overall thoughts on community college?

    Also, much like how you all have a career review page could you have a degree review page? Instead of listing out jobs it would list different BA degrees (English, Business, etc.) MA degrees, and PHDS? I know the career reviews has some…

  13. Benefits of developing self replicating technology exceeds all other possibilities.

    If it takes 10 years of high investment to develop a set of machines that can duplicate itself and deliver a large and increasing set of goods and services ( from mining to manufacture to delivery) and it takes 2 weeks to produce a copy, then within 2 further years, there can be one for every person. That outcome exceeds anything else.
    It ends poverty (every person has automated systems to create whatever they responsibly choose).
    It allows solutions to climate change (at several different levels - putting one such machine on the moon allows us to develop space technology…

  14. Twitter links on pages don't have pre-written text!

    Every time I try to share your article through twitter (by clicking the tweet link above the article), I get a popup ready to post to twitter with the link to your article, BUT THERE IS NO PRE-WRITTEN TEXT (like a copy of the article title).

    I know it's not much work to copy/paste the article title, or to write my own text, but I suspect there are many people who want to share your post on Twitter but are too lazy to write in something.

    I think you're missing out on some re-tweets ;)

  16. Native advertising

    Hello! I am a Media Business Analyst at Qwertize and I noticed that you do not have native advertising. It brings additional quality content to your website that looks completely native to the configuration. It increases digital advertising revenues by attracting more viewers to your page!

    Looking forward to hearing from you!

  18. Problem profile on 1-6C climate change

    There's a profile on tail risk of climate change, but it seems to me like the potential politically destabilising impact and many knock-on effects on global society of even 2 degree climate change is worth an appraisal. There's also the non-zero chance that even 2-4C degree climate change becomes unmanageable. Would you consider writing a profile on this topic please? Thanks

  19. Ideas for less competent people

    I would love to use my career for good but I'm not competent enough to do most of the jobs suggested by 80,000 Hours. What do I do?

  20. EA careers that mesh well with parenthood. Profiles of people with high impact who were also raising kids.

    There are a lot of parents (especially mothers) who take a career break or scale back on the hours worked in order to raise a family. How can these people go on to have a significant impact? Please profile people who had a large impact without neglecting their families. The first example that comes to mind is Jane Jacobs. What to do when the bottlenecks are limited time and career capital. Maybe talk about the role of volunteering in building civic society and the backbone of communities, the role of volunteering vs paid work.
