This is what Jeff wrote:
I agree with Steeleweed that there is quite a bit of work needed to keep it going and I agree with Collins that many hands make light work. And I would hope that Hynd would stick around enough to remind us every now and then of the realities that he is aware of from this last years experience.
Is the community strong enough to pull it all off? I really don’t know but I am up for trying to find out.
I would like to suggest the following:
The Agonist community consists of many great minds as is evident from the numerous thoughtful and intelligent comments made to the varied articles. The lack of having a diary in which to better explain one’s views continues to be a sore point. However, there is a solution for this.
Anyone interested in having their article posted on the front page can email their essay to me and I will place it on the front page for you, with proper acknowledgement, of course. I will not edit your essays as English is not my mother tongue and I continue to be grammatically challenged. Maybe steeleweed would be the better person to take this on or it could be a combined effort as I enjoy including photos to add some “oomph” to the front page.
I believe that contributions from a multitude of great minds will keep the Agonist vibrant, meaningful and above all, a ‘true’ community effort.
Finally, as some of you have indicated, Tina would always be welcome back to add her own astute observations and to add some much needed lightheartedness.
So what do you think?
