You're supposed to be what, exactly? Remind me, because you're supposed to have some clue, surely? Mayhaps this might look familiar: Although I am admittedly too lazy to clone the environment on my develsever I suspect it shouldn't take long ...

I believe what EyeR is saying, grumpily, is that if you were to install the software presently running the Asgardia forums, it has a default search functionality that has been removed. Now, as EyeR has pointed out, it hasn't technically been removed, as you can still pull up the link ...

I'd not actually bothered testing the form, just looked to see if it was where it was supposed to be. It's non-functional status might explain it's lack of advertisement but one assumes this worked when the git was cloned - no-one else has complained of this. It's possible the "modifications" ...

Poking at the form that's served a little, selection of individual subforums produces variables it doesn't expect. That likely requires attention too, but could be consequence of w/e adjustments have been made, and unpublished making it difficult to actually do anything.

Our (Asgardian) website is much better now updated. The layout is much more professional. Good job. Congrats... Regards, Leonardo.

Why the requirement to track "10 invitations" ?
Jun 24, 01 / Jun 13, 17 09:29 UTC
Oooh, a contest! You mean we get to spend £15 on a $2 shirt - $0.5 if buying them in bulk, £4 of which goes to Asgardia. The math there is definitely worthy of the efforts. For a chance to win a subscription to a "magazine" you'd already be subscribed ...

If you want a clock or a figurine or something then fair play - but using it as an excuse to "make Asgardia money" when it gets incredibly little for whoring it's name and reducing the credability of the entire movement I don't think to be a good precident to ...

It should be possible to conscript a design, then find out how many you'd need produced. Not all accept large orders only, but commonly the larger the order the cheaper the run and less accumalitive shipping costs. For example

will produce a single poster for $1.40, ...

Thank you for the clarifications, Jason, I'm still feeling *excluded*, even if unintentionally, and thought that only allowed (maybe) commercial realities here was **AIRC** and **Room** but, if you say **FB** is "*approved (commercial/social) platform by Officials*" I have to understand.

Hi Elwe Thor, I'm confused by what you mean,

> the nation is assuming responsibility for data protection of it´s citizens in nation-iniciated activities... By "assuming" you'd meant "ignoring", right?

lol, I'm aware of what you meant, I was just being facetious to highlight the general data security ethics seem to consist of failing to understand the problem(s) of not bothering to think about where it's going, how it's being stored, or why they would even need to store it.
Jun 24, 01 / Jun 13, 17 09:29 UTC
As far as I can tell, EyeR, the information they are storing on us is hardly too dangerous to any but the most dedicated of identity thieves. I get more on myself when I googled "phicksur" than I provided to Asgardia.

It's not so much of what they store, but the way they seem to go out of their way to make sure everybody else gets a copy, too, or to try and generate more through various third party services - like the use of FB exclusively in this competition(instead of ...

I actually have to completely disagree on the point that government agencies do not ask its citizens to use various social media platforms.
Many governments operate embassy pages and groups via Facebook, and ask citizens to follow these groups so that they are able to get almost immediate up ...

I agree @EyeR, the two way part is discouraged, I was only contradicting the statement that governments do not interact with citizens via Facebook in any form, when in fact in multiple cases they do.
Jun 24, 01 / Jun 13, 17 09:29 UTC
So, maybe, Jason, you don't know **my** government, or even EU's governments at all. We're struggling in creating an "*european internet space*" exactly 'cause of the "*damages*" companies like FB 're doing worldwide. We had *[lawsuits](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Max_Schrems#Safe_Harbor_.2F_European_Court_of_Justice_Case_2013)* against FB (have to say we **won** them: maybe you know [Max Schrems](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Max_Schrems)), against ...
