I suspend myself until Elias enforces his own rules

If he enforces many of the forum's rules, not just threaten to enforce them, I will be back to contribute. I also recommend others who are not violators of the rules to follow my lead. I know there are many factions and camps on the forum and all of them have violators inside them.

So without regard to our differences, all the non violators should show respect to ourselves by not being part of this forum - until Elias takes action against frequent violators.

Now who argues with that? The violators of course!

This is for you Elias:

Elias wanted to "clean up" the forum as more Eritrean embassy staff with advanced age are planned to participate on this forum in the coming days promoting the idea of "Ethiopians working to help Eritrea" get Badme back etc.
Your not participating will be welcomed by Elias and those he serves.

Minelik aka Belaynesh, you are right we probably outnumber your sorry asz by a factor of ten for we don't use multiple nicks aka Weyane style. We do not have any reason to use multiple names for we know and we believe in what we are doing unlike you who are constantly hiding your identity with multiple names and starngely multiple avatars.

Ideas to improve this forum

Postby elias » 06 Sep 2010, 17:10


To take the discussion that was started by Beles here viewtopic.php?f=2&t=21661 further, I am presenting the following ideas for discussion. The purpose is to experiment the starfish (decentralized organization) model on this forum.

1.Invite well-known individuals to serve as guest moderators for a week. The guest moderators will try to set the discussion agenda. We as a groups (forum members) decide who to invite.

2. Enable individual members to create their own forum of which they have administrative control.

3. Institute a rating/ranking system for posts and members.

4. Increase the number of moderators to 15.

5. Conduct interviews with various scholars, political/civic leaders/ artists, etc. Forum members can come up with proposals on who to interview and ask for others to contribute questions. The person who comes up with the proposal then submits the interview questions to the interviewee.

6. Do Top 10s, such at the Top 10 artists, scholars, music, film, etc.

7. Strictly enforce forum rule that every one agree upon.

8. Adopt a zero tolerance policy against ethnic slur, which is a poison against Ethiopiawinet.

9. Add Amharic typing capability to the forum. I have asked geezedit.com to help us with that and they said ok. I already added language translator (see above) that translate the forum to several other languages.

These are some of the ideas I picked up from the discussion at the other thread.

Elias,

I am happy to see that you are making a concerted effort to improve this forum. A while back ,I had boycotted this forum because it had become a place were people gather to sling ethnic insults at one another. Vulgar languages were also allowed without any warning by the moderators. This forum can compete with Ethiopian paltalk rooms as long as you are willing to clean up the forum and make it a stage of discussion for all Ethiopians regardless of their political orientation . Eritreans and woyannes should also be welcome as long as their agenda is not to spread ethnic hatred.

Inviting notable personalities to moderate this forum would also add a great value to the forum. One thing that will not change is that unless you are willing to enforce the forum rules religiously, all your efforts will be in vain.
