Fwela fya'o!
« on: January 02, 2012, 04:08:58 pm »
Ma frapo, It has now been more than a week without a special Na'vi.  The last NotW seems to have nominated a new NotW who hasn't yet posted their thread.  If there is no NotW this week, I'm seriously considering closing this forum.

If you are the current NotW, I strongly recommend coming up with your bonus question as you decide upon your NotW.  It took me all week until my bonus question was finally answered, and it came up about halfway through my week (IIRC).

Nìmuve, don't worry if your question seems dull or dumb, 'cause chances are that it's not :)

Instead of closing the forum, perhaps you could restart the chain by choosing a new NotW yourself as the forum moderator...

To me as well, the idea of closing and maybe even deleting this part of forum sounds very bad.
The NOTW project represents a significant portion of history of entire forum, and a lot of people had placed a piece of themselves here.
What about a news banner on top of every page of our forum? Can we place there a notice about the broken chain and that the LN forum seeks new Na'vi of the week?

No one should no who has been selected NotW. I do not want to see this forum section closed as well.

Chain should be restarted in a way or the other.

Tam, someone has been chosen (you know who you are, don't reveal yourself just yet), but if this goes on for another week, I'm having them start at #87 instead of #86.

Ma Oma, it is good you are addressing this with an alternate plan. NoTW is something that not only reflects history here, but is a useful resource for getting to know the active users here. The respondent numbers I saw when I briefly looked around here still look reasonable from the time I was NoTW. So, I think this is a 'breakdown' as opposed to a 'lack of interest'. (I am remiss in that I have not been commenting on NoTW's in some time. This lack of response happened at a time when I had to cut activity here back for a while, and I never got back into the habit.)

We all saw what happened when the entire Neytiri Project was deleted. Please do not repeat the same mistake here!

This. It is nice to have option to read about great people here, it is often very interesting

I wasn't thinking of deleting any threads here, just seeing to it that the forum would be locked.  But now that the issue is resolved, awngari te'lan mawey slivu :)

Could it be that someone has missed his cue here? ???
We already have a new week, but no new NotW.

So the question that remains: Now what? How do we get the cycle restarted?
There would be a few options, though.
a) Wait if the designated NotW reveals himself (likely to be a failure again)
b) Give UtS a second chance to designate another person (there's a good chance to get this restart)
c) Relaunch the cycle manually ('Oma Tirea's choice)

I wouldn't want to lose this concept :( - I think this is much better for getting to know someone much better than is usually possible in the intro section...

I've nominated a person. He seems confused on how to be the NotW and he will post his thing March 26. Sorry for the break I caused  :(

I'd say that that isn't your fault since you didn't make any mistake here.

I have the NotW badge on my profile right now but I have never been nominated. I did not get the questions thread so I dunno... Also, my name is not on the roster at all so I am very confused.

I sure hope I have not messed up here.

Nì'awve, irayo for noticing.  I can allow for a week's gap (It's happened before).

I've nominated a person. He seems confused on how to be the NotW and he will post his thing March 26. Sorry for the break I caused  :(

The questions thread is here.  Bottom post is the BBCode for the questions.  All you have to do to start is post a new thread with the title "NotW #97: Meuiama Tsamsiyu (Toruk Makto)" with the questions answered in your post.  Enjoy your week :)

There is no new NotW currently.  :(

I would have hoped to catch up on my participation here, I could not answer the recent nominees...

Is there currently a NotW (who could possibly resume this on Monday)? If no, how do we get this restarted now?
It would be a shame if this came to a halt... :(
