Hello E-DZ Loyalists,

 

So today marks E-DZ's 8th anniversary... Yes, it's been 8 years since we officially got online and on to the vast world of the internet. February 17 2006 to be exact, but I launched the site the day after which was the 18th.

 

On this date, I renew the E-DZ contract so that it stays online. There isn't much I can say except that on this date every year for the last 2 years I have been contemplating the closure of E-DZ.... but... I can't seem to do it. I have renewed us for another year, but I seriously want to turn it around if possible.

 

As a community, we'll need to regroup, refocus, and set some new goals. Over the past 8 years, we have done pretty much everything, which speaks volumes to the type of community we are. Maybe this year we'll need to re-evaluate ourselves and answer a few important questions:

 

  1. Who are we?
  2. What do we offer?
  3. What are our goals?

8 years mashallah! I was just a kid back then, haha :D

Well, for the questions, I don't think I have been a part of the community for that long to determine the goals and the identity of E-DZ, I will leave it to you guys.

But I have an idea to liven things up a bit, we could do themed weeks, like the youtube thing where there'd be a science week, for example.
So maybe each month we'd vote for the themes we want, we don't have to do the 4 weeks, maybe just two or one each month.
I think that would help the users participate and contribute to the theme, since it focuses on one subject.

Thanks for being straightforward bro lol... I know we do... I know we do...

 

Maybe we should refocus the site so that it encompasses more than just the young..

I think the forum and the website are amazing!  As i understand, only the forum is now running...and i guess people nowadays are more interested in new forms of social media, instead of the good old forums. But i Believe that a good use of facebook,youtube and tweeter could give a new life to the community!  Im sure of it....as for now...Im baaaaaack :)
