Well I'm not completely sure we need another mod yet. I'd like to hear what the current mods have to say about this.

It couldn't hurt, Bagget I think is having computer problems, Uriuujìn is active at times but less at others and Hawnu has exams so hasn't ended up posting a whole lot recently

I'd vote Fnua for a 4th mod, he seems to know what he's talking about and he's always there in when there's a pivotal discussion. I think he'd be the figure head that we'd need

Thanks for the vote ;D obviously I would love to be a mod however I am not sure that we should be going crazy with modships here although I can promise to be on every day from 5PM to up to 4AM on weekdays and more on the weekends, I agree with 'Itan though, this really needs to be looked over by the mods, don't know exactly what has happened in the 30 mins that I have been afk, reading threads now :)
Anyone feel free to add me on msn or skype: [email protected]

Lol. Yeah, I wouldn't mind being a mod either. But I'd still vote for you, Fnua, if it came to a vote for whatever reason.

I actually kept the old threads so that we could have a reference to what we have already done- to keep us going ^_^; I will petition to get an Archive sub-board. That way, we can keep all of the old and locked threads in storage for future reference ^_^ And delete all those who don't have anything to do with us.

Txontaw seems to be one of the main people involved with the eco-village, perhaps that is a question he should answer ^_^ I see no reason why not anyway. We can bring our own computers I suppose, that would save money. I'm just hypothising though, I get the impression that the eco-village members have their own stong opinions on matters, this was discussed a bit before, perhaps a new thread would not go amiss but I think that should be left up to the permanent members of the eco-village :)

EDIT: *Points to post below so as I am not going off-topic with a random post: Ikranä for modship! Join the campaign ;D

Haha, sorry for missing this topic.

Looking above, I can see that it's gotten off-topic, so lemme get the train back on the tracks;

Housing
For starters, I think that we (the tribe) would find a small little agricultural town and buy a large piece of land with lots of trees on it.  We could hang hammocks from the trees so that weather permitting, we can sleep in them like real Na'vi.  When the weather isn't so nice, we would live inside a house or several cabins.

First of all; this tribe is not a Na'vi fandom tribe. It was triggered by Na'vi fandom, but it is not a fandom tribe.

From what I know (and depending on the location) there will be huts for living, huts for food storage, huts for etc.

And hammocks will probably go inside the huts, so that weather permitting or not, you can sleep soundly. (Please remember that the Na'vi sleep inside too!)

Food
We should try to grow as much of our own food as possible, but obviously we should be able to buy food when we have to.  I don't think we could really hunt unless we all wanted to get hunting licenses.


Yes, we'll have a garden, that will grow much of our non-meat diet as possible. The meat will come from hunting (which you don't need a permit for, in this case. Do the indigenous tribes in Africa need hunting permits?

Horses
We should have some horses, since the dire horse is such a big part of Na'vi culture.  There would be a few "tribe horses", which everyone shares, and if you want and can pay for it, you could have your own horse.


See above; not a Na'vi fandom tribe.

Horses would have to depend on location; a thick forest would not make a horse an efficient mode of transportation.

But if we did have horses, everyone would have their own horse.

Money
Which brings me to money.  Everyone in the tribe should have a job in the outside world to provide money for food and other important stuff for the tribe.  If you have extra money after the tribe has been cared for, you can spend it on whatever (pets, nice clothing, ect)


Actually, we've already gone over this. The eco-village will be paying for the tribe. Hopefully, there won't be any expenses for the tribe other than taxes or things similar to that, depending where we are.

General Clan Life
We would speak Na'vi when around each other as much as possible, and we would try to be as Na'vi like as possible.  (ie. No shoes, braids.  But please wear clothes)  We would have a healer person for minor stuff, but if someone was seriously injured or sick they should go to the hospital.  Since this is the 21st century, we would have a phone and TV and computer, but the phone is only for emergency, everyone only gets 1 hour a day on computer and TV is only for special occasions.


See above again; not a Na'vi fandom tribe.

The "healer person" would be UnilTxep, who is an EMT (or is training to be (or something)). She'd be able to treat most minor wounds, deliver babies, etc.

However, for major injuries, the patient would be evacuated (through the eco-village) to the nearest hospital.

Outside Friends and Family
Obviously, we can't all just go dump our friends and family.  So a couple times a year we would have a sort of open house to allow people to come and visit. 



'Tis not a good idea to let inexperienced people onto experienced soil. They'd scare away prey, leave trash everywhere, and reveal where we are. It's better if those in the tribe go to them, not the other way around.

Yippee!!!! Now let's get back to topic. *puts on a serious face*

I think Txontaw's take on family and friends has a good point. Better to go out and meet than bring them in and possibly affect other members of the tribe.

On the topic of horses, can I bring my little bay Arab?  He's my baby!

We need horses.  Because otherwise we end up going around in cars and stuff.  Horses are much more eco-friendly and awesome.

No, we actually don't need horses. We have two legs that work just fine. Horses would be good for long distance travel, but we're not going to be travelling any long distances.

And what do you mean by "otherwise we end up going around in cars and stuff"? Do you plan on bringing your car to the tribe location if you can't have a horse? (In a forest/jungle, I'm sure a car would work wonderfully.) What distances do you plan on travelling that would require a horse or car?

One final thing: If we decide on a location that doesn't naturally have horses, bringing them there would be a huge mistake, not only for the health of the horses, but for the natural ecosystem, as well.
Example: If we decide on the Amazon and you bring a horse, that horse will get eaten or catch some disease and then probably pass it on to the rest of the tribe. And that would be bad. If it didn't get eaten or catch some disease, then just it moving around and grazing in the area would trample many plants and (if there are enough horses) throw the ecosystem out of balance.

I don't think that we're going to end up in the Amazon.  There are too many mosquitos and stuff that could give us diseases and kill us.  But if we end up in the mountains or plains, then horses would be a good option if we monitored their grazing and breeding.  My feet work fine, but unless we want to over-hunt where ever we end up, then we'll have to spread out to hunt and a horse would be a faster and easier way to do that then just walking/running

That's why it was a hypothetical. Thanks for noticing.

I think you're waaaay over-estimating the tribe's hunting prowess. If there were about 40 of us and we were all experienced hunters with voracious appetites, then I would agree with you. But we're not. If we're lucky, we'll get about 10-15 people, and only a few of which will be good hunters. Since there will be so few efficient hunters, there's no way we'll over-hunt the area. We won't need that much meat.
I think you're also underestimating how far our legs can take us. In distance (not speed,) we can out run the rest of the animal kingdom.

[Oh, and while your new argument for horses is lovely and all, it has nothing to do with your previous point (which is the one I asked you to explain. The one about how "We need horses. Because otherwise we end up going around in cars and stuff. Horses are much more eco-friendly and awesome," remember? If we try to bring your two points together, we get something like "if we can't have horses we'll be hunting in cars...") So an explanation of your previous post would be appreciated.]

What was basically going through my head is that I envision us to be living like some sort of Native American tribe.  I'm pretty sure that hunting and gathering would be easier if we had horses.  I think you are overestimating your feet.  We're not going to have good shoes with rubber soles.  More likely it's going to be a piece of animal skin or something.  So unless you want a new pair of shoes every single week, I think horses would be better in that way too.
Where I was going with the cars is that depending on where we end up, we might have to be a migratory tribe, in which case we would need a way to carry stuff and people.

I will win this argument singlehanded


Go barefoot. If you start now you will develop calluses and so you will feel less pain in you feet.

Don't be offended but I really don't think horses are necessary. We're never likely to be travelling far enough for them to be any advantage. Just think about it logically, the eco-village is going to have to be a more or less permanent set up, ergo, the tribe can't move too far away
