that's for the "huh?" question - a few days ago i sent to the kid a sort of a suggestion - how religion can influence mentality and the way it is related to war, why sometimes religion can conquer/create or distroy nations without weapons? and how religion itself may become a dangerous weapon! how can religion mantain the inner features of a nation even in difficult circumstances (u name it because there were so many!) in my oppinion religion/religions in fact were some of the most effective "weapons'" because they always concentratre on mind games well in short these were some of my thoughts but then i found this topic a bit difficult - nobody can be objective when it comes to this and it will give birth to misunderstandings and as i said before to all sort of clashes, so .... better not
also if anybody is interested in the most strange way religion can mingle with politics and territorial independence u can search for facts regarding one of the most interesting nations (in my oppinion!) - the Khazars - here some links: http://users.cwnet.com/millenia/turul.htm
http://www.imninalu.net/Khazars.htm

hope this will give some clues about what i've had in mind, but as i;ve said i have already dropped the suggestion!

P.S; now i understand the mma thing has no connection with me srry i didn;t get it from the beginning



If you have an idea for a topic, feel free to make one. Just make sure it's in the guidelines of post-making in the main page.

"Anyone should feel free to create their own topics as long is it is in some manner related to wars, warriors, martial arts, weapons, or any related subject. Be sure that your topic is thorough and will give room for conversation and not just one-word answers that lead nowhere. When asking questions, encourage people to explain their answers with why and how and be sure that the topic is legible. If we cannot understand the words, how can we reply to it?"

I have an idea and I want to know what you think.


If a thread is inactive for ten days, and we're still on the first page of the topic, the thread will be deleted.
If a thread is inactive for a month, it will be reviewed for deletion.


So basically what I mean by review is that.

If you find a post over ten days old and it is on the first page, ask yourself if the thread has any potential. If it does, nourish it. Change the OP a little bit if you have a better idea. If not, if it has no hope or you don't want to worry about anything, delete it. Sometimes a topic needs a little kickstart in that if lots of topics have been active it might have been pushed onto the second page and not many look there. In that case, try giving a bump, see how it does, and if it still is lifeless after another 10 days, do what you wish with it.

If a topic has been inactive for a month regardless of it's pages, then we review it.

Of course no deleting mod or admin posts. If you have an idea that one should be changed or deleted, bring it here [or if we get a Mod topic, bring it there] and we will review the best course of action.

The reviewing process is getting together [in hopefully the mod room] and talking about it. If it has potential, we must do something to bring it back to life.
-----------------------------------------------

If anyone else has any suggestions or objections, let me know. This group is like a monarcho-democrat [yay I made a government archetype up] where the fair and benevolent king may have the ultimate power but he listens and everyone has a say.

If someone has a better idea I agree with, I will always go for that.
If someone has an idea that I might not agree with, I will explain my reasoning why and they can make their counterpoints [a sort of mini-debate so as both parties truly understand eachother's reasoning] and then if there still is a disagreement, I will count on the other member's ideas and who has the most supporters will win. After all, this group would be nothing without it's members and I find it fair they have a say in the matters.

Therefore I will always bring my ideas forth here before implementing them [or after implementing them to check and see if they should be changed or if there are better ideas]

So no one hesitate to give ideas or give friendly criticism of others ideas here.

-----------------------------------------------

Also I had an idea. Does anyone know a way to make a moderator's only topic? Like only moderators can view/post on it? It would be neat to run our ideas by eachother and then bring them to the attention of the members as I never want any issues truly private and kept away from the issues unless it is something personal that does not effect them, but I just find it would be more organized.

I also updated and organized the main page a bit. Mods, use the format that I used in listing updates.
Mace, can you format/organize your member challenges? I think they need another hint too.

Any thoughts, suggestions, or objections?

Be sure you read my last post. It is imperative.

hehe... monarcho-democrat...benevolent king...hehe

Well the idea is excellent couldn't have thought of anything better myself

I'm not sure non mod/ admin can't delete threads, even if its their own... I'll remove myself from mod for a moment and test it. Just make me mod again after.

As far as a mod only topic that only mods can read, the only way I can think of doing it is by making an alternate group that is invitation only (I'm pretty sure you can do that) and only have the creator and the mods join.

I dont think anyone is even trying anymore as far as the challenges go. Honestly- its not that difficult. Just look at common groups between people I invited. Its almost plain to see seeing as a few people here are only a part of two groups.

And marjan007, quit calling me kid. I don't even know your age and it feels like you're talking down to me.

Smartass. You did come up with it. Well part of it.

Methinks that making a whole other group might be more trouble than it's worth.

What do you think of the organization of the main page?

Music to the main page. Music that suits the the groups main idea. Everyone loves music! And music will give the main page some more atmosphere besides pictures.

Well, it is better than before. More organized. Our group is based on the forums more than anything else and that is what our wall is all about. However, we really need to come up with a way where the users are involved. Some sort of picture competition would be fine.

It doesnt hurt to do the alternate group thing. If we dont like it we can just trash the idea and forget about it. It doesnt have to be anything fancy. Just one thread.

That is a wonderful idea. The problem is that we put up the two nomination threads to decide on the pictures and there hasn't been many entries.

What kind of music do you think would fit?

I was hoping you would be able to figure that one out. I posted that idea with none in mind. maybe if you post a search for music members can come up with suggestions. I haven't a clue. I should have thought of that one more.
