So this is a cool web platform that really creates a versatile way to collect, gather and organize data.
It invloves creating pages with content and adding hashtags for reference. In other words, all the pages can be linked via hastags, creating a 'rabbit hole' of sort of knowledge/information.
First, play around with the site and see how things are set up. You'll notice how the pages all link together based on relevance (hashtags, links, etc).... so the more content there is, the more depth the 'rabbit hole' becomes for a user experience.
Next thing to do...
Create a page with your name as the title, and that includes a picture of yourself. Then when you add pages, just include "Added by: Your Name" to it.
You'll also notice the typical format of each page.
*Remember to try to break things up as much as possible (i.e. don't combine numerous resources into one page). The reason being, that eventually it would be people to add their thoughts and insights onto the page of the resource. So think of each page dedicated to a person, book, video, podcast, event etc.
When you edit a page, please remember to update "Last edited by:"
Press tab at the beginning of a line to indent and add a bullet point.

Our goal is to help you build a map of your ideas that gains clarity and context with every scrap you add.
What can you put in a Scrapbox project?
Use Scrapbox to outline ideas, discuss code blocks, give feedback, and brainstorm.
Lets say you are working on developing a new website. You might want to discuss ideas with your team before and while you execute the plan. First create a page Site plan to start a conversation about the site requirements and link some useful resources. On that page you might add a link for a new page called Social media buttons.
You can immediately click on that link to Social media buttons and start editing. There you may add links to Twitter, Facebook, etc. Next you can click on Twitter and you'll see a related link that will take you back to Site Plan.
Once you can easily and directly type your ideas while also building context ideas become more clear the more you use it. No more folders full of dead text means no more teams isolated from their own ideas.
What ideas in your head could your team benefit from you putting down right now? Go create your first three or so pages and add a few links. From 3 to 3,000 pages your ideas will only grow in context.
📌 Once you've got the basics, here are ways to dig deeper and get the most out of your new project
