Spring 2023

Welcome to the Spring 2023 release of the Prosocial Design Network website. There are many updates in this version that we hope you'll like:

Versioning Update

Going forward, this site will adhere to semantic versioning. This update is Version 1.1. Patches to this version will be noted at the top of this post.

What's new in Version 1.1

  • The Tested, Untested, and Browse All tabs have been consolidated into a single searchable library. This change will allow you to not only search based on evidence level (the default), but also by the intervention's Name, and/or the Issue it's looking to solve.
  • The Suggestions Form's Qualtrix form has been swapped out with an in-house form.
  • We've restored ReCaptcha protections to forms, and have made those forms more accessible.
  • Citation cards in interventions have been reformatted to mirror how they appear on the 'Browse Papers' page.

5 New Interventions!

We've added the following five new interventions to the library!

  1. The Respect Button
  2. Nudging Counter-Partisan News
  3. Removing Rule Breaking Comments
  4. Shared Humanity Memes
  5. Positive Background Imagery
