Good Problems at UD

Spread the love

Dear UD Visitors

 

Today you may have noticed that UD went out of commission a couple of times.  We are experiencing technical difficulties resulting from a significant upswing in site usage.  Obviously, the more visitors we have the more we fulfill our mission of serving the ID community and promoting a vigorous debate, so from our perspective we count this as a “good” problem to have.

 

Nevertheless, we are always distressed when our service goes down, and I want to assure the users of our site that we are actively working to prevent these problems from recurring.  In the mean time, I apologize for any inconvenience or frustration.

 

On behalf of myself and the others who work on the site (volunteers all), please allow me to extend our regards to all of our visitors, who are, of course, the sine qua non of the success of the site.

    Hi Barry:

    I am well acquainted with the ID-Darwinism debate, but I am a newbie here at UD. Based on my newbie status I believe I am in a unique position to offer a few observations in the context of your quote pasted above.

    1. It is safe to assume that a large portion of these visitors are potential ID supporters seeking basic information.

    2. When negotiating the site they instantly discover a group of veterans well acquainted with the ID-Darwinism debate, unlike themselves.

    3. Sites controlled by Darwinists rountinely ban and censor any and all IDists who they view as a threat to the health of their theory, and their ID misrepresentation agenda.

    Based on all of the above facts I suggest that UD create some type of “Question Forum” for our visitors so they can feel welcome and have instant access to answers. Only trusted IDists should be allowed to answer these questions. Darwinists who post rhetorical questions and points should be removed. I believe this is a good way to serve the rank and file ID community and counter the Atheism-Materialism-Darwinism agenda.

    Ray, we are working on upgrading our FAQ (See Arguments that have been refuted . . .) on the side bar.
