Re: Increasing use

It seems that while adding more mods has been of a great help the incoming new registrations however are mostly lurkers waiting for the chance to do harm.

As the topic suggests how can and do we get participation onto the forum site and for Mars society in general.

This is what out reach is and currently we have just the one member reaching out to others on another forum reposting with permission some fo the posting that relate to there forum. It is hoped that others will register that would want to get there voice heard and or to give help in bringing in new members with skills that compliment, those that are already present.

It would be hoped that others would do the same as part of there daily routine to connect with others, that think space is important. That what we learn from going to space is not a waste of money that we can apply what is made here on earth.

Re: Increasing use

For SpaceNut re this topic .... (and post #27)

Thanks for bringing this topic back into view ... It is short enough so I read it from the beginning, and followed the phase of recovery from the "great crash".  I appreciate the history of this and other Internet forums.

Thanks too, for links to Facebook and other sites ...

I scanned the Facebook site, and note that it appears to be active in the sense that the Mars Society is delivering short but worth-reading content on a frequent basis.  There might be a way to publish calls for specific skills there, and (?perhaps?) such appeals might be viewed favorably?

However, there ** is ** the problem we have yet to adequately face, of how to facilitate communication from outside the forum to those inside who we would like to connect to offers of help.

I don't log into Facebook much ... there's too much going on there for my limited bandwidth.

If there is someone currently in this forum who ALSO is a frequent participant in Facebook, perhaps that person might become an ambassador to help to connect volunteers with project leaders in this forum.

The specific requisition we have going is for a master chef to help RobertDyck with Large Ship logistics planning for sustaining 1066 people for two years.

The kind of person (I am imagining) who would be qualified would be someone who recently retired from a position at one of the large cruise ship lines, or perhaps a military officer retired from the logistics field planning deployments of thousands of citizens to remote locations around the world. Experience from any nation should be applicable to the Large Ship project. 

The assistance needed would be specific facts that would guide RobertDyck in sizing the supply bins on the Large ship, and anticipating equipment needs as well as personnel duty requirements.

The large Ship started out as an ambitious vision, but it has moved gradually into the realm of possibility (if a miracle occurs).  What is needed now is help to make a miracle happen, and that will occur one little miracle at a time.
