Your blog post that you submitted for the TH!NK5 competition automatically qualified you to compete. It does not need to be reviewed we just needed one post per person and then you are officially in the competition. Start brainstorming! I am excited to see what you will come up with in the coming weeks.
"Peace" - is writing a TH!NK platform article about these comments?
You know what... if you have read my articles, you would know that we agree that large parts of main stream media fail on communicating climate change. If you had read my community contributions you would know that it is far from the first time I voice the opinion that internal discussions should be kept in the community site, not on the publishing platform. (I don't expect you to read all my stuff but just saying there is nothing new about this position. A position which, by the way, EJC admins have previously agreed with.) Why you choose to mix your discussion of media attitudes with comments about the TH!NK admins and me personally... well, let's just say I simply don't understand it!
Internal discussions on the TH!NK publishing platform makes our window to the world unattractive to readers. I don't know you, so I have no reason to pick on you and I am greatly sorry you misunderstood me in thinking I was - and of course I wasn't trying to annoy you in any way! I was trying to help our community appear professional to guests, making us more popular to the outside, getting us attention.
Anyway... I'll be mostly offline for a couple of days so don't expect any answers anytime soon.
Don't you agree that too much of us talking to each other on the "competition" platform front page would look ugly to a casual visitor? How would you feel if you looked at CNN.com front page and saw an article where the CNN journalists argued with each other?
Obviously, since it is a "competition" and some will go to places to report and other will not it will have some news value who's going. If your comment is about that then why not put it up as a comment to the announcement of winners?
All I am saying is that climatechange.thinkaboutit.eu is for th!nkers talking to the world and we.thinkaboutit.eu is for th!nkers talking to each other. If a th!nker is using the article platform to write to other th!nkers then that th!nker is doing damage to the project.
I think if you want to write an article about the role of the media then you should do that.
