My appreciations to all who took part in the Facebook survey over the last month. We have 23 responses indicating their preference for our focus.

Results:

Final Results (all to this point counted.) Spiritual 52%; Earth care 26%; helping humanity 22%. The option for 'other - to be discussed.' was not rated any points. That's a huge indication of where we should develop.

Cheers.

Investment in people

The forum has a privileged history of helping a good number of people since 2005 to work through a wide range of issues and real-life circumstances. It is a legacy of empathy, care, support, aroha, dedication. That is an exceptional head start and a basis upon which we can build upon.

We’ve seen three cycles of membership since and each has culminated in a meet & greet event. The last event in Tauranga, also coincided with a rapid rise of Facebook as a key social media to which most of the working group migrated for well deserved life-break from forum activity.

I’m very proud of the working groups involvement in the past care centre which eventuated in a new trust, Gateways Society. As the forums activity recessed, the trust was also recessed but the groundwork is in place for the future with a rework in mind.

The internet population increases not just with world population growth, but with more availability to remote areas and with connectivity increasing in all areas of technology. Online groups are more and more focused on areas of expertise, with general masses migrating to social media sites such as Facebook.

The internet will see a greater demand on real-time services that provide guidance, how to, care and support for individuals and families. Internet resources that focus on key areas have an increasing role to play. There is scope for a key online community group that can act on behalf of real life activities (e.g. activity adjuncts such as parenting, health, meditation and reflexology, crafts, personal development; banking and insurance services.)

We will continue to support the community, invest in people, promote care, contribute to uplifting people’s quality of life and spiritual development. The future is in your hands. We look forward to sharing the journey with you.

Kind regards,
Kevin.

2020. Did you think years ago that 2020 was a magical number? I did. It was like... so far in the future! We should be space faring teleporting super beings. No?

I was talking to another forum operator last week whom I won't name (G..., cough) but he mentioned that he'd been involved with member boards back in the 1980's when modems' really did seem operated by mice. He recognised that forums (aka 'Boards') have a seven year cycle and the current cycle is the worst he's experienced for member participation (really?) Another member had mentioned the same aspect.

What's special about this cycle is that we are all involved with a lot of internet - social sites such as twitter, facebook, etc (there's well over 30 common social sites out there and they all take the lion's share of attention.) And board software need a social update. All of that is true. And all of that makes re-focus attempts a mine-field. It's like you'd need a masters degree in anarchy to put the jigsaw together.

So, fellow readers. It be time for you to put your pirate mask on and yo ho ho.... tell me how to hijack Facebook :)

I'm calling a quorum of the 'ship to drive through and find a resolve. Aye!

I the mean-time I think a few well intended additives of my own concoction will stir the nest.

Thoughts welcome. Honest ones please.

Kevin.
