MandoaOrg wrote:In the future, I would like to add curated lesson plans, categorical word-lists (colours, numbers, parts of armour and weaponry, etc.), and more informational pages to the main site at some point. I may have to implement a content management system (CMS) or wiki so I can get help from you, vode, in writing and maintaining this content. I don't just want Mando'a.Org to be a translator and a forum, but a hub for all Mando'a-related needs; someplace where the diaspora of the Mando'ade across the internet and the globe can come together and work towards a common goal.
Raeth wrote:Sometimes I have noticed lag, and other times not. It seemed to come and go, and it wasn't just during the live chat. But, overall, it has never been so omnipresent nor extensive to give me cause for concern or make using the translator inconvenient. So, I am just sharing for informational purposes, not as a complaint.

Raeth wrote:I couldn't agree with you more. In some regards, I know this would overlap with what the MMCC Mando'ade do. BUT, I feel like there are still some missing gaps between the language studies at mandoa.org and the costuming of the MMCC. I would imagine there are some inherent challenges in doing things that do NOT infringe upon copyright or invite legal trouble. That said, I would love to see:

Raeth wrote:- We could work with the MMCC (of which, I do want to participate once my beskar'gam is complete) in some manner, perhaps becoming auxiliary to them in some official capacity.
Raeth wrote:- We could create something to 'market'; the MMCC has patches, pendants, and other assorted collectibles, and this not even mentioning the armor; can we do something the same, to celebrate Mando'a? T-shirts with funny Mando'a sayings in the Mando'a script?
Raeth wrote:- A STREAMING INTERNET RADIO/VIDEO/PODCAST PROGRAM IN MANDO'A!!! (Actually, several programs: A Learn Mando'a program, a Mando'a Culture program, a Mando'a lnaguage drama show, and my personal fav', a Mando'a cooking show!)
Raeth wrote:As a question, how do we overlap/interact with the MMCC? I do NOT want to poach their members (since I want to BE one of their members once my beskar'gam is complete) or step on their toes, but is there some way we can work with them and yet provide something beyond what they do?
Raeth wrote:1. Membership - You're right, we are a niche interest group. So, expanding our range of activities while keeping our core of Mando'a language/Mando'ade culture fan-study would help with something every group must consider: Recruiting new members.
Raeth wrote:2. Various Media - I will help any way I can, but I would LOVE to see/hear/be a part of some Mando'a shows/podcasts! MMCC has Keldabe Radio. What can we do? So far, this sounds like the best idea so far to run with in the immediate future.
Raeth wrote:3. Copyright and other legal issues - I think it would be worth having a specific forum to discuss copyright issues, and post official responses to our requests. One thread could be things we want to request (e.g., Can we make and distribute patches to members?, Can we charge membership dues?, What signage can we use at events?, etc.), one thread could be things we're allowed to do, and one could be things we've been prohibited from doing.
Raeth wrote:My personal focus is generating interest and bringing in new members. I don't feel a need to be 'huge' (but, I'm not against that, either!), but I'm so excited about Mando'a and the Mando'ade, I can't help but want to share!
