Good deed = a deed corresponding to moral and social conventions that can be circumscribed to one of the six categories of good deeds. In the economy of "Good Deeds" functionality, a good deed designates the text introduced on "Good Deeds" user page, text associated to the description of the good deed in the real life.
The categories of good deeds = six areas of reporting the human being through good deeds to the world, society, environment: "Giving affection / Relating", "Helping", "Being socially responsible", "Creating", "Improving myself", "Saving".
You can post a good deed from your user page, using the "Change the world" button on the right side.
Technically, the "Change the world" button has the following structure:
Publication button "Change the world".
On left of the publication button "Change the world" a text box is placed by means of which the user enters the text to describe the good deed. In this text box you can enter up to 2000 characters. Before enetering the good deed text, "Good Deeds" user note in this text box the faint indication: "Add a good deed ...", which means that the user can operate the box with the left button of the mouse in order to enter the good deed text.
On the right of the publication button "Change the world" is a box "Select Category" which contains a drop-down list in which the user of "Good Deeds" can associate to the text entered into the left box, one of the six categories of good deeds available with the symbol: "Giving affection / Relating", "Helping", "Being socially responsible", "Creating", "Improving myself", "Saving". For an explanation of the categories of good deeds and examples please see section "FAQ".
Below publication button "Change the world" is the file upload option. The user can upload an image file constituting the evidence of the good deed introduced by means of the text box. You can also insert a link to a video resource (ie. A video on youtube). The link will be automatically converted into a video playback window.
When pushing the button publication "Change the world" all the entries in the text box, the drop-down list and the "Upload file" option will be displayed in the right section of the user page as a good deed. Good deeds posted by pressing the posting button "Change the world" will be represented chronologically, the last posted good deed will be found at the top, while all the others will be placed successively below in chronological order. In the event that you used all the 2000 available characters in the left text box of this button, the entered text will appear in full in the right section just by clicking with the left button of the mouse the option "more", available under the good deed text. Every good deed entered will be demarcated by means of a graphic element. Any good deed may be edited or deleted by the user using the "Edit" and "Delete" buttons.

This button allows other interconnected users of "Good Deeds" who access a user’s page to confirm the character of "good deed" of the good deed posted by a user. Confirmations of good deed generated by means of the "Good Deed" button display their total number as well (depending on how many interconnected users used this button).
This button allows other interconnected users of "Good Deeds" who accesses the page of a user to show their gratitude for the good deed that was addressed to them. This button, unlike the "Good Deed" button is intended for the access of the recipients of the user’s good deeds. Thus, the interconnected users can directly say thank you to the person who did and posted the good deed. This button can indicate the number of "thanks" depending on the number of interconnected users who have thanked.
This button is automatically associated to any good deed posted by the user and allows the other interconnected users of "Good Deeds" who access a user’s page to share a good deed.

There are two fundamental questions that arise in the process of creating your account. These are:
Text Question No. 1: "How can I improve the world I live in?"
Text Question 2: "How should my ideal world be?"
User’s answers to these questions together with the text of the questions are permanently displayed in the left section of the user page under "Personal pattern", provided that the user has already completed these answers. Questions and answers related represent the desirable vision of the user in relation to the quality of user of "Good Deeds". The desirable vision may or may not be proved by the real good deeds that the user does and post on the way. The user of "Good Deeds" has the possibility to change the answer to questions by editing the profile information. During the registration process on "Good Deeds" the two questions are optional.
This text is always visible on the user’s page. The user does not have the possibility to modify it. This text serves as the text - inventory of good deeds entered by the user in a given day. The text is disposed at the top of the right section of the user’s page.
"My Path" is a counting on days of the activity / non-activity of "Good Deeds" user. This counting allows viewing the number of days with good deeds, and the number of idle days. Counting starts on the day of creating your account. This counting translates the idea of the user’s orientation (of the path that the user follows) in reality (the path of good deeds or the path of non-activity).
"My Path" counting is located in the left section of the user page at the bottom, under "Fundamental questions".
"Good Deeds" reflects the reality of the individual. "Existence" in "Good Deeds" is closely related and depends on the actual existence of the individual who does good deeds. "Good Deeds" encourages authenticity, uniqueness of each individual who is distinguished from others by means of his/her personality and life experiences.
A page of "Good Deeds" user has two sections: the left section and the right section. The two sections are:
a. A design element specific to "Good Deeds";
b. A philosophy. The right section is called " The Mirror" being the active area of the user page. This space changes its content according to:
• the selected items in the left section (good deeds categories icons, user last name / first name, profile picture, etc.);
• good deeds added that day.
If the user of "Good Deeds" is not active in a given day (does not post good deeds through the "Change the world" button), the right section of the user page retains the role of mirror, reflecting the non-activity of the user that day. The user’s non-activity quantifies thus in “Idle days".
Thus, "The Mirror" reflects the gallery of "Good Deeds" user, the personal profile information, feelings, good deeds or non-activity, the good deeds categories archive.
Also, The Mirror has the status of implicit section of your user account being immediately visible after login. The Mirror can be accessed via the "The Mirror" tab or through the button associated to your last name / first name at the top right of your user account.
