Observation, suggestion, proposal - from now into the future ¶
Dear fellow citizens (though this topic is mostly for admins' attention),
I would like to introduce and propose several suggestions for Asgardia based on my recent observations and experience. No offense meant.
To start with, I would suggest to reconsider the process for new registrations/citizenship. For the moment it is not as straight and obvious as it has to be. Make it simple and step-by-step, with every step providing certain level of feedback and status, so newcomers are aware of the state – and what is down the road next.
Unfortunately, the current website setup resembles a mess, and a new citizen will most likely get lost in information piles. Would like to stress that forum is NOT the best and efficient form of communication to many topics currently being listed there. But the most vital thing is that something like “Get involved” section with the website is the must even at the current stage.
And yes, it is a bit strange to see people using nicknames here instead of real names. Open society has nothing to hide, right? :)
Now onto more global things – a draft sort of a Master Plan. My question to Lena received a no go during today's stream, therefore I will have to start it from a scratch. Won't stop for detailed clarifications, just statements for the moment and place.
It is a must for Asgardia to have and operate own launch vehicles – and a whole set of scientific and research institutions. Such setup means enormous financial resources necessary. Crowdfunding, donations and even solar cryptotrading won't help.
Regardless declarations and official status for the time being Asgardia has to become a Multinational Gigacorporation here on Earth by functional meaning – offering as many products and services as possible to ensure sufficient investments in real space programs.
Such approach dictates the soonest development and deployment of Asgardian Communication Platform as the first measure, which will serve the purpose of bringing Asgardians together and closer, will boost internal economic structures and cooperation – and will become the all-purpose platform eventually. Needless to say such application has to operate with any device and means.
I would appreciate admins to pass this message to Lena – please also note that it is just impossible to list even details for above here, and I have quite a lot to add and say.
Thank you for your attention and assistance – and hope to hear from Lena soon.
