Where did all the Open Minds Forum members go?

Fri Oct 19, 2012 12:29 pm by Admin

With Open Minds Forum restored now for almost half a year at it's new location with forumotion.com we can now turn to look at reaching out to OMF's original members who have not yet returned home. OMF's original membership was over 6,000 members strong, prior to the proboards suspension, according to the rolls of the time. We can probably safely assume that some of those accounts were unidentified socks. If we were to assume a reasonable guess of maybe as many as 30% possible sock accounts then that would leave potentially somewhere between 4800 to 4900 possible real members to locate. That is still a substantial number of people.

Who were all these people? Some were average individuals with common interests in ufology, exopolitics, globalism, corruption, earthchanges, science and technology, and a variety of other interests. Some just enjoyed being part of a vibrant and unusually interesting community. Others were representative of various insider groups participating in observation and outreach projects, while still others were bonafide intelligence community personnel. All with stake in the hunt for truth in one fashion or another. Some in support of truth, and communication. Others seeking real disclosure and forms of proof. And others highly skeptical of anything or limited subjects. The smallest division of membership being wholly anti-disclosure oriented.

So where did these members vanish to? They had many options. There are almost innumerable other forums out there on the topics of UFO's or Exopolitics, the Unexplained, and Conspiracy Theory. Did they disappear into the world-wide network of forum inhabitants? Did some go find new homes on chatrooms or individual blogs? Did they participate in ufo conventions or other public events and gatherings? How about those who represented groups in special access? Or IC and military observers? Those with academic affiliations? Where did they all go and what would be the best way to reach out and extend an invitation to return?

And what constitutes a situation deserving of their time and participation? Is the archive enough? How exactly do people within the paradigm most desire to define a community? Is it amenities, humanity or simply population size for exposure? Most of the special guests have been emailed and have expressed that population size for exposure is what most motivates them. But not all. Long-time member Dan Smith has other priorities and values motivating his participation. Should this open opportunities for unattached junior guests who have experience and dialog to contribute to the world? How best to make use of OMF's time, experience and resources?

Many skeptics would like to see the historical guardian of discourse opportunity to just up and disappear; go into permanent stasis. They think that not everyone has a right to speak about their experiences and if there is no proof involved then there can philosophically be no value to discourse. I personally would respectfully disagree with them. Discourse has always been the prelude to meaningful relationships and meaningful mutual relationships have always been the prelude to exchanges of proof. In a contentious social environment with regards to communication vs disclosure how do we best re-establish a haven for those preludes? Is it only the "if we build it they will come" answer? Well considering OMF has been largely fully functional over the last four or five months this line of reasoning is not necessarily true. So what would be the best way re-establish this? Your suggestions are sought. Please comment.

Open Minds Forum News Reports 2012

Post by Admin on Fri Mar 16, 2012 10:19 am

MARCH 16, 2012 Lucianarchyringleader Reporting.

2012 is a benchmark year for Open Minds Forum in which she is recovering from a catastrophic event that resulted in a near destruction of her contents which are the results of nearly seven years of effort by over 6000 members from the ufology, exopolitics, conspiracy, ancient archaeology, and cutting edge technology communities among many others, including an extraordinary number of outside experiencers and researchers.

This year is observing OMF moving to a new location, revitalizing her wheels, and the content being restored in a variety of formats and locations. This work is a continuing process and as of March 2012 is nearing completion and readiness for the return of her members.

We urge everyone continued patience and high expectations.

*****

OMF is currently seeking dedicated individuals to participate on her Community Forum as Moderators, News & Media Specialists, Tech Support, Image Analysis Project Technicians, Publicists, Article Writers, Field Researchers, FOIA Specialists, and Document Archivists.

These are volunteer positions and will be classed as OMF staff and listed on our Staff Page.

Interested applicants should submit your position of interest, name & moniker (names can be kept confidential), contact info, a brief bio including your interests, and a simple paradigm applicable resume to lucianarchyringleader@gmail.com

All positions will begin on a trial basis and then transform to a permanent position.

*****

OMF Reborn will host member blogs in 2012. The logistics of this is still being established, please stand-by for further information on this.

*****

OMF Individual Event Reporting, whether in the topic of ufo sightings or first hand experiences in subjects like Conspiracy will have a standardized format for reporting. This will be referred to as a SitRep which is an abbreviation for Situational Report. The standardized format will be posted for review and copy in short order for public use.
