Hi Richard, "Report an Issue" isn't working, giving an HTTP 500 error page, "atheistnexus.org is currently unable to handle this request" after you hit Submit. (Good thing you don't have braindead tech support who'd tell us to use "Report an Issue" to report it!)
I will mention my activity on Atheist Nexus at the PA Athesit/ Humanist convention this month. I also listed the blog on the official website for the convention here: http://atheistpa.org/speakers-2014/
I like Atheist Nexus a lot, and I plan on continuing to be active.
I have been a member of Atheist Nexus for about 2 years - great site. Thankyou for your efforts.
i) I am intersted in extending Atheism into other media channels in South Africa. We have real structural probelms here with Bishops councils etc. I would like to use Atheist Nexus as reference point :- Philip Copeman, spokesperson for Atheist Nexus said "Blah Blah". If you google me or look though my posts you will see I have straight froward mainstream Atheist views (albeit more evangelistic than most), with clearly defined tolerance for secularism, see www.philipcopeman.net . Do you have a formal mechanism of allowing spokespersons?
ii) Have you used the Ning extensions? I have a great communtiy in www.turbocash.net - 110 000 SME accounting users. Huge penetration in the Church market. I am interested in apps that mix accounting and social media. Any ideas? See also www.turbocash.ning.com
iii) I run similar sized communties to Nexus. I have used Joomla in the past but I am finding it increasing cumbersome. I want to swing my investment to Ning, but I am worried about how it stands up on volumes. You have 88000 how do you think it would be if I had 500 000 thousand members - see www.azania1.com
