Wink Re: How Do You Feel About This Forum?

Thank you everyone for your participation in this thread.
The majority believe that there can be improvements.
I believe that your thoughts and feelings should be
considered.

I hope that the Mod team and admin look at this thread
very closely to see the issues that cause some
discomfort.

And those that want to leave the forum probably
have personal reasons. But overall, it looks like
Avalon is on a productive path. We just need to
make a few tweaks here and there.

I plan on leaving this poll wide-open. Please continue
to share your thoughts and feelings.

Peace,
Kevin

I think it's a great site. I was worried when the Camelot forum was closed and I'm still worried about it becoming a pay site, but I think the site is very well organized.

Hello Gordon,

Good question. I am a little concerned about some of the members leaving if Avalon becomes a paid subscription website. I hope that Bill and Kerry take this thread into consideration.

Peace,
Kevin

the following problems should be addressed:

- make one thread or sticky only about water, another only about food prep, etc., etc. to clear up the whole ELE/war/avian flu/whatever preparation mess that is all over the board. we need to put all the information together so that there is no more need TO discuss it again and again. consolidate it so its findable. too much time is being spent on these topics when we ought to be discussing the handbook and internal preparations.

-we have people here that are just beginning the journey of waking up and we have very advanced posters here that know almost everything. id like to think that this forum is the most advanced forum with respect to obtaining the truth. if you want to go the political route, go to the prison planet forum on the alex jones site. thats all they discuss there-- theyre spiritually devoid for the most part, and most dont believe in the alien stuff.
the icke site is okay, but again, theyre not nearly as into the george green/paradigm handbook stuff. IMO, the icke site is like the jones site with the alien knowledge. lastly, youve got the mtsar forum which primarily discusses symbolism, psychic vampirism, and society. its small, but has a group of sharp individuals who post there. lets make this site more george greenish (with some deagle influence) and cut down on everything else- thats our niche here. the wilcock followers have the divine cosmos board for the more passive 2012 approach.

the newbies need their own section to catch up with the rest of the more advanced people. debating whether mccain or obama is better and whether fluoride and vaccines are good or not simply causes board traffic. besides, we are far beyond worrying about that stuff.

lastly, the social groups arent being under-utilized.

id like to see this board become 80% spiritual-oriented and 20% physical preparation. headlines and news updates are easily found on other websites, like rense. why repost anything thats readily found?

If it has to become a paid site, some forums have a "paid-member" area that has things like a live-chat, extra content... just a thought.

Gordon,

Kevin is not Bill. I know this for a fact. I am not clear on why you would think this, as well as assume that Bill would do something against his own guidelines (see "Cloning").

Im going to have to agree with almost everbody.A Little of this a little of that...Mix it up..what do ya have..? A little more knowledge.
Keep the threads we already have,in an organized,consise manner.
People that have already read almost everything posted here,may just want to reference a topic that has been added too.
Added Ground Crew discussions are extremely valuable.Id like to see how other Groups in other Locations are defining their mode of operende without giving away too much security.
Do you know the difference between Paranoia and Someones out to get you?
I DO
Overall,Im reading the General concensus is..Dont make us pay for our own contributions,Categorize by Topic Specific without duplication,and find new ORIGINAL material to add to what is already here.
Of course, Mother Earth,Spirituality,and Peaceful Survival are a gimmee to people that wander to this site.And for that,I am truly thankful.

Gordon,

By review of your posts, my guess is you clicked on "C. This Forum Stinks - I plan on leaving".

Let's stay on topic and stop the Avalon staff badgering please. Consider this a warning.

Hey there,

No way is Kevin "Bill Ryan" if that is the "Bill" you are referring to -- Bill Ryan would never use a fake name... he stands behind everything he writes.

I agree with earlier comments regarding there being too much input which does not really add anything to debate. A narrower field in which to comment would be better, with instructions to stay strictly within the confines of the topic.
When I first signed up I was a regular visitor, now I find myself going back to P. Camelot.

I am happy and contented with everything !
And as for disinfo agents they can say what they want, but they can't change the reality.

Wink Re: How Do You Feel About This Forum?

Hello Everyone.

I assure all of you that I am not Bill Ryan. I do not have a british accent.
I don't like wearing hats.

I also stand behind everything that I write. And I am very honest.
My name is not fake. I am not fake.

My name is Kevin Dellinger. I am a composer, writer and artist.
I am married with 2 kids and I live in the United States.

I enjoy the paranormal and spirituality. I also enjoy being
a part of the Avalon forum, although it can be challenging at times.

Peace,
Kevin Dellinger

I'm going for option B.

The forum started off great but members quickly started over zealously self-moderating or seeing the chance to be the prefects that they perhaps missed out on at school.

I read more than I post on here and have noticed that when people post threads about the reality we live in their threads and character get ambushed with accusations, warnings and 'telling off' for being fear mongerers, negative or a bad influence. It's like members are not allowed to think for themselves or have discussions. Now fair enough, I agree that we should always try to better ourselves ethically and spiritually, 'raise our vibrations' as many say on here and endeavor to have a positive influence but for many that also means addressing the reality we live in head on rather than thinking we have to keep quiet about it lest the mention of negative things ensures they happen. Sure having a positive focus is a good thing but ignoring the negative isn't always constructive and to be treated like there isn't a choice on this forum 'for our own good' is going past good intentions. I've noticed many posters who want to address these issues have started posting disclaimers in their threads that specifically say things like 'I'm not fear mongering or being negative but...' just in case they get jumped on by the very people who are trying to spread love and light or start unnecessary friction. Conversely, calling people 'hippies' or 'new agers' is hardly helping.

This forum was apparently started to address physical issues and networking due to negative situations in the reality we live in. I think the spiritual, mental and emotional input is wonderful and provides a good balance, but instead of balance we're getting conflict because people are not showing tolerance for each other and the different approaches people have to addressing and tackling issues. As long as there isn't unethical behaviour, there needn't be so much tension amongst each other.

I also dislike that many posters are being labeled as having 'victim mentality' and 'well if you choose that or let them do that to you then it's your fault' - that's hardly encouraging is it? We live in a reality (or false reality) where we are being influences by so many things both internal and external whereby yes we do make our own decisions and have to accept the consequences, we have to try to be mature and try not to make mistake or consciously negative decisions in the first place but we are also surviving in a web of deceit and manipulation so many of us are both victims and victimisers. We have to acknowledge that and not blame the victims instead of the victimisers or entirely blame someone/thing else without evaluating ourselves. It's hard to be strong or vigilant or positive all the time, have some sympathy - we can't all empathise with each other but a little sympathy can go a long way.

We're all on this board together, so we have to learn to share it or many of us will likely get pushed away.

Just a note - I'm not against self-moderation, it just seems that there are some distinct wedges appearing and hopefully that wont turn into anything akin to pack mentality.

AGREED ! I'd also add that I wouldn't like to be in B&K's shoes right now because this forum must be so NOT what they anticipated. Ultimately it's got to be a choice between exclusivity or heavy policing. - The problems of running things don't change much, do they?

I think I would prefer exclusivity but with an open option to view. If that means I'm excluded, ( I don't use PayPal ) then that's ok. I was quit content/thrilled! to watch PC interviews and brows Open Minds Forum until the 'debates' here got me 'hooked' and I registered here recently.

If it is decided to make this forum 50//50 'spiritual/ascension' // 'Greencrew Kibbutz' I'm OFF to consider my options on my own.

Norman, you do bring up a valid point about newbies and more advanced people. Maybe there should be a library section that is for viewing only?

Interesting article.
