The LessWrong Community consists of the people who write on LessWrong and who contribute to its mission of refining the art of human rationality. This tag includes community events, analysis of the health, norms and direction of the community, and space to understand communities in general.

LessWrong also has many brothers and sisters like the Berkeley Rationality Community, SlateStarCodex, Rational Fiction, Effective Altruism, AI Alignment, and more, who participate here. To see upcoming LessWrong events, go to the community section.

Not all Community posts are tagged with subtopics.

This tag applies to any post about:

  • Specific projects, orgs, and prizes [e.g. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5]
  • Requests and offers for help [1, 2, 3]
  • Announcements, retrospectives, funding requests, and AMAs from orgs [1 2 3, 4, 5]
  • Discussions of the orgs in the LessWrong, Rationalist cluster [1, 2]
  • Discussions about the LessWrong, Rationalist, and related communities [1, 2, 3]

While the World Optimization core tag is for posts discussing how to do good in general, the Community tag is for the specific, concrete efforts of our community to execute plans.
