The forum is more or less dead, spam bots rule and members have dwindled away to ghosts.

Why?

I'd like to hear your thoughts.

Thanks in advance.

Asalamu Alaykum brother Scimi,

I recently joined this forum after I found out that the makers of the Arrivals series (which changed my life) had a website and this forum.
I have also noticed this forum is dying down, and I just got here (to this forum). I think maybe if we made a new amazing inspiring youtube series, we could perhaps direct the viewers here and then we could have a team to make more youtube videos. The problem is it will take a lot of work, and fresh new ideas. Another problem is I have high school, and I have all honors classes (which means I get a lot of homework), but I am prepared to help with whatever I can.

Aren't you working on a series right now?

We have to think of a way to make it mainstream. Maybe we could ask already existing muslim youtube channels to sort of "advertise" us, such as Smile2Jannah, The Deen Show, Nebulous1982, The Merciful Servant, Chronicles of Faith, etc.

I think one reason why this forum has dwindled down is because we don't "wake up" new people anymore, and we don't make anymore videos. We also have to make them high quality, not some poorly edited "conspiracy theories" . That would require some good software, which would also cost money.

In Sha Allah, we will unite the Ummah. We need to first wake up, then unite and organize, and then act and put effort into the path of Allah.

In Sha Allah brother when can I start?

Please reply soon

I think making an interfaith series would be something that no one, that ive seen, has done. I know ive looked for ties that bind for a long long time and I always hit a wall. it either ends in bloodshed or someone converts.

I don't know if im looking in the wrong places or if I just gave up hope. ive fought for common ground for a long time, but what I was really looking for was something to unite the Abrahamic faith, without getting "new age".

Walakum salaam ago veli and hageos.

It would be great to work on something. I was actually working with truth-zone.net to make a short film but im not so sure due to the state of the tz forum (a lot of jew hatred and trolling) so I am in two minds. So... the next idea is to either do an interfaith understanding video or maybe I just finish the g&m stuff instead. Either way here is the little test render which I messed up (its only 2 mins long to check the sound sync n stuff)



The sound is messed up in the render ... hmmm

This is hard work. I have limited time due to work commitments so if people want to help - its about commitment and not being afraid to learn new skills - such as researching and contextualising or maybe even video editing - that would save me some time.

I think that's a good starting point. ive been saying it for at least 2 years now. THEY dont care if your shia, sunni, catholic or Lutheran. they don't care if your Sephardic jew or mizrahi jew. they cant even explain the difference. they only care that your fighting each other. its truly a war on fundamentalism.

and salaam ago and scimi :)

Then I clicked and read

Scimitar, you are one delusional fella
I guessed you missed the part where you (proudly) single handedly drove (banned) half of the members off this forum

Unbelievable.

Bro H

This forum was never meant to go where it went in its hey-days some two or three years ago.

It was then decided by the admins to let this place be infested by trolls and shills like scimitar

It was then that the intended deconstruction of all the contributions made be members over a period of several years would soon become history.

Do you see anyone doing anything to save this place?
No!

Insha, norg, arch, arch, bush, mortal (albeit he is the most unbiased )
They all just abandoned this place and the aims of this project

They didn't expect people to be too damn awake!

ok ok, ive been accused of being naïve before, and ya, sometimes I am. but ive known bro scimi on this forum and a couple others for a couple years and I know he went through a bad spot, but he was man enough to apologize for that. id say we be man enough to bring him in with an open hand up.

and ya, bro ahmed called out achenaar, to which I was in dumbfounded awe, and achenaar responded to let the forum die.

I stopped hanging around this place because of the unmitigated bigoted HATE for Christians.

eitherway I just have one suggestion to make for both here on wup and in life. can we can we be bigger men by making our egos smaller ? can we apologize to each other ? can we express our appreciation for each other ? can we lay down our pride and admit to one another that we have acted outside the will of god ? I will start.

I apologize for barging in on the forum half stumbling with some jerk post, not even researched for authnicity, crying and begging for an answer. yes ive been guilty of wrong information before, and ive also come to those ive trusted as friends for guidance. and I thank you.

I have been reading through this forum for years, don't post much though. At first I posted my opinion around a bit, but realized that I really don't want to be held accountable for anything longer than just at that moment I decided to say something - a week later my views may actually be completely different from what I previously said because I have found new information, etc. Call it hypocrisy or whatever you will. I call it just being human and having a digital interface to express ourselves in ways we may not in "real" life. Good learning experience though.

The whole idea of all this internet technology is just a perfect storm for imperfection. Therefore I have decided it's better to stay quiet and ponder over the ideas and things I read and see online and just keep my opinion to myself. After all, what do we really think we are going to solve just sitting here typing things? There is no real action that I know of for the most part, if all electricity was suddenly shut off and all online data erased forever, every post, image or video you ever shared or "created" just GONE - what would we really have to show/prove that we were trying to make a difference in the world? I'll bet the vast majority would be left feeling empty and lost, like they lost their identity, and really have nothing to show at all.

Maybe the forums are dead because people have realized this fact after years of staring at a little screen for basically nothing, and have ventured out in reality trying to better themselves, their families, the environment, etc. in the real world and spending the time they wasted in the past being online, actually doing something for real like exploring the world outside of a pixelated rectangle!

Just my opinion of course :problem:

Bro Co,

I agree with every word you posted.

The idea here, is not about me or you. It is about the collective us.

Purposly letting the forum fester and die off is an obvious act of selfishness on part of those
who created this project.

They could have just killed it. They can still kill it.
But to see this misery is just plain wrong.

Kill this board and keep the site as reference .

Don't call it the wake up project when there isn't anything being posted
and only a handfuls of people posting.

Don't insult us by this pathetic state this forum is in.

TOT you seem a bit prideful and a bit overly aggressive.

I think there is a more assertive way to handle things.

anyways, sticking to what I said, cause I knew this was gonna happen, bin.

Thank you for your responses. Seems some of are feeling that I am responsible for the members leaving. Maybe I am. Allah knows the truth of that. I will admit though, that I have been harsh on occasion with members such as xavier and that fake muslim who was a closet racist. Kindness didnt work so I laid out my logic plain as day - they couldnt reapond and I didnt relent - multi-quoting their posts to further expose their hypocrisy for all to read.

Seems others who may have been planning to infiltrate the forum also left early when they noticed myself and others posting vigilantly and strongly about what we believe to be truth - as subjective as that may be - we laid down posts which followed validated thought processes, considered contexts, explained method etc all so the members here can better arm themselves with the ability to research properly.

If this has the impact of clearing this forum of trolls shills and fun seekers then I don't see that as necessarily bad.

But to call me a troll and shill mr TOT requires some explaining. You see, you've accused me of the above without any proofs. If you would like to own up to who you really are and stop posing as someone called TOT then maybe we can reconcile whatever past differences we may have once had.

Bro Hageos, lambul url is changing to a new one. I'll give u the link when its ready.

Please keep your thoughts coming. I'd like to understand more in sha Allah.

Scimi

Bro TOT, what have you done for this forum so far? and what really qualifies you to spew your hatred like this? Or you are just angry because your habib ali/ mahdi theory didn't work out? if you really care for this forum and want it alive again then come out of shell of TOT and forget the past with bro scimi and others. if you cant forget the past/ don't really care then please stop behaving like a spoiled brat

It's never been abandoned... it's just too much work for such a small team.

The spirit is willing for many, but the flesh is weak.

For the future of this website, I'm going to make my last "hurrah" at it in the beginning of next year. I can't comment on much of it, but :insha: it will help.

The guy mocking you genius.

He knows he's the main reason why people like org left this forum.

To create this thread at this time and point is an insult to you as an
active member on this site as oppose to myself, a drifter, and you can
sue me for not keeping to myself but you have no right to accuse me or
judge for saying what what needed to be said.

Tot looks like you don't want to respond to mw directly. It also seems as though you are an organiqcal fanboy... highly suspicious conaidering he was posting under a female pseudo here. And now - voila - c'est TOT.

seems org is still here, Just butt hurt and posting as Tot. Very amusing.
