I am a new member here in this forum. I anticipate many great debates, as well postive growth. I learned of this forum from a friend who posts regularily. I look forward to participating in many of the great discussions happening here.

I manage a community called the thin_edge of staring. It is a philosophical community that operates inside a gladiator arena, which means philosophy is discussed "no-holds-barred". It is a rather ruthless place. At present, however, it is rather peaceful. If any member here would do me the service of checking out the thin_edge and posting any comments or criticisms regarding my site on this thread, I would be grateful. Tell me what you think of the atmosphere of thin_edge, the members, and the depth and quality of the discussions.

The thin_edge is advertised as: The thin_edge of staring is a community of thinking individuals. There is one requirement for membership in thin_edge, which is the creation and defense of at least one thread (on a philosophical topic of one's choosing) inside a gladiator arena. As one member of thin_edge remarked, "a gladiator arena is not a place to expose oneself to a world of ideas, but rather it is a place to fight for the supremacy of one's own." The thin_edge welcomes thinking individuals to discover the origin of a good conversation. If silence is golden, then whatever disturbs the silence should be worthy of the interruption. Any thoughts?

It is a private community so please tell me at the door that you are a part of "operation sci-fi" and I will let you inside. Thank you.

You have to partially subvert your will to the Dark One (Bill Gates, not Satan) and register with MSN. The link still does not work for me, though.

directions to the thin_edge

The community exists as part of MSN, which means that one requires a "NET passport" to access the system. To get a "NET passport" one merely needs to open a "Hotmail" account. I assume that the system one uses to access the internet will also come into play.

I will check these things out and post later. Thank you for trying.

ohhh it is bad. MSN and .NET. no thanks. I'm sorry but I think tht many others won't like to acquire .Net passport i.e. sell their souls to M$. Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image! but really, try to get rid of MSN and stuff, take a free webspace provider and make your arena there. 10. ### MalbusRegistered Member Messages: 4 Avatar, What is this "free webspace provider" and where can I learn more? Actually, I find the "sciforums" format rather amazing. 11. ### Avatarsmoking revolverValued Senior Member Messages: 19,083 free web space provider is a company tht gives you free web space on inet. however it is allmost allways with ads. but if you are ready to pay some 6$ per month, you can get many Mb's of webspace and with no ads. The forum format like ours is quite spread in inet. How to acquire one and about which is the best webspace provider the best solution for you is to ask Porfiry our admin. send him a personal message or e-mail him
