FAQs

If you've never been in an online community, don't worry, you're in good hands! Have a browse through our FAQs to get familiar with what goes on.   

Who's behind The Movement?

  • 100%Open is a specialist open innovation agency that helps large organisations in the public and private sectors create value by innovating with others. We're running The Movement on behalf of one of our clients to help them come up with new transportation ideas.  
  • At some point during this community we will be able to reveal who our client is. Exciting, isn't it? 

Who do I contact if I have a question or problem?

Please contact your facilitator Gina here: gina@100open.com

How do I get started? 

  • Put a face to your name. People like to see who they are dealing with! You can upload a profile photo when you register, or visit your profile later and upload, don't forget to save. 
  • Feel free to upload as many posts as you like. You don't have to be an expert - every opinion counts
  • People love to be listened to so don't forget to comment on other people's ideas. They in turn will comment and vote on yours! 
  • Other community members are more likely to look at your ideas if they are visual. So take a moment to find and upload a photo, either taken by you, or that you have licence to use.  
  • The more you contribute the more points you get, and you get points for following others, being followed, commenting, in fact everything you do.  See if you can feature in the The Movement's leaderboard! 

How do I get the most out of being in The Movement? 

A few simple things will make your time in The Movement more rewarding:

  • Follow Gina, your facilitator, she will always try to be where it's at! (go to 'people' tab and click follow buttons)
  • Follow anyone you think has interesting things to say: you'll find what they've said in your profile's 'Ideas Stream'
  • Subscribe to Challenges to be alerted by email when there's a new Post in that challenge to see. (You can unsubscribe anytime)
  • Subscribe to particular Posts you are interested in, to be alerted by email when someone adds a comment. (You can unsubscribe anytime)
  • You can manage which alerts you get from your profile, 'settings' tab
  • Please post up some biography and a profile image, it's alway nice to put a face to a name when we are all making new connections

Why should I participate? Might I win a prize? 

  • Yes there will be regular weekly prizes of Amazon vouchers for those who make the most interesting and original posts and for those who are the most active in the community. Winning ideas, that come through the final stages of the project will also attract up to £100 of Amazon vouchers. 
  • Otherwise we hope that participating in the community will be its own reward. Our previous communities have certainly been fun and productive!
  • The leaderboard is a great and fun motivator, but accumulating points is no guarantee of prizes.

Who is in The Movement?

  • We have recruited a cross-section of members of the public here
  • People may be younger or older or live in the city or the country
  • There are some transport experts here too who will be very interested in what you have to say 

What if I think there is inappropriate behaviour? 

  • We are facilitating this community so if you see any inappropriate comments or behaviour just let us know by reporting this behaviour (you'll find the reporting tool at the top of the idea to the right. (A Flag)
  • The rules of civilised behaviour apply!  Avoid saying anything that might offend others and be polite when criticising others' ideas

What about if someone votes my idea down?!

  • Yes, we do have a down vote so there is that possibility!
  • Don't take it personally, it just means someone doesn't think your idea will work in the real world, or something like that.
  • If you are going to use the down vote on anyone's idea you really have to comment as well and say why, this way you will help to improve the idea or help Challenge holders when they look through the ideas, with info they may not know about.
  • We have a down vote because an idea that gets 40 up votes is different to an idea that gets 40 votes because it gets 80 up votes and 40 down votes.

What about intellectual property? 

  • Any ideas, comments or other content that you upload here are deemed OK to be used, adapted or taken forwards by 100%Open or our clients. 
  • If you upload an idea or photo make sure you have the right to do so.
  • If you have any IP in your idea please say so and we will take that into account.
  • If you have trade secrets or ideas you should not reveal because they are commercially sensitive, please don't publish them here!
  • Some challenges may offer specific business models or suggest special ways of treating IP - check out the terms of each challenge if you are concerned or email gina@100open.com 

All the best,
