Dream on, dreamer!

High Tech VC firms are pouring millions of dollars and hiring the best brains from Stanford, MIT, Caltech, Imperial, IIT, GeorgiaTech etc to try and compete and are failing and you are saying a one-man band in Nigeria with inverter to help supply power will compete with Facebook.

Why don't you go into the Cement industry and compete with Dangote? Or go and compete in investment with Warren Buffet? Self Defeat?

Mobinga:

How profitable

I remember when our business section became popular when all those wonder banks were in vogue. And after that, spammers and advertisers finished it off. It used to be great.

I remember when I realised I could no longer respond to every thread on the forum, and after a while I couldn’t even read every thread. Now I can’t even check every section in day.

I remember when I first realised that revolts by old members couldn’t kill the site because of the constant influx of new members. This, coupled with stress from the rapid growth of the site, led me to adopt a Buhari-style approach to managing the forum, which tarnished my reputation quite a bit. I’m trying to change that now.

I remember when I locked all Nairalanders out of the forum during a public holiday because I couldn’t keep up with spammers anymore. I was spending several hours every day just deleting spam and I was tired. Mukina2, a famous Nairalander, volunteered to help by moderating and recruiting other volunteer moderators.

I remember when I wrote an ‘antispam bot’ because moderators couldn’t keep up with spam. And it wasn’t enough. Then I added a registration CAPTCHA and it didn’t make any difference. Nowadays, everyone hates the bot, because it often makes mistakes, but we would have had to lock down the forum if we didn’t have it.

I remember when I noticed all of these things smiley

If you believe that, then you will believe anything.

At 60k a month in 2005, one could estimate his salary to between 300k and 500k per month in 2011.

" , Facebook has grown so big that the only thing other social networks can do is just die. MySpace, Hi5, and even Google’s social network (Orkut), and Microsoft’s Live Spaces have been beaten and are still losing members every day. If Google and Microsoft can’t beat them, I don’t think I should waste my time, " - Interesting response Seun, but kind of true (and funny response too; especially the "die part". smiley

I do have an idea for you though; you can be in the "league" of facebook and not have to "beat" them (or compete with them directly). I'll try get in touch with you sometime soon to share my ideas.

More power to your elbow Seun. Guys like you are what Nigeria needs. We will change Nigeria; we will change Africa!

Smart of you!
But you need to be reminded that at least, once in a year, forum members should vote and agree whether they want their moderator staying or if hes doing a bad job.
We need fresh ideas, especially on the property forum infested by a mod who drives all the attention and traffic to himself alone!
Please, let there be a consensus about mods, you shouldnt just pick anyone you like.

Na dat one matter? How about the efforts put in to have it all bubbling; the going from place to place to make people aware and stay active here, the stress of moderating, checking spamming activities, tweaking codes, writing bots codes and scripts, etc?

It's worth commending.

Well done Seun.

Did you see "Buhari style regime"??

This is not a democrazy.

If you want consensus cos one moderator cracked on you, go and start your own forum.
