OYA! NER VODE! TION VAII?
OK, I'll admit, I haven't posted anything much the past few days either. It's been busier than a troupe of Jawas at a swap meet here, and I am just trying to not fall to far behind on EVERYTHING! That said...
Being the resident trouble-maker here (EVAAR'OYA MANDO'A DARASUUM!), I felt I was falling behind in my duties of stirring up some ruckus. Well, ruckus is just the side-effect of my normal doings and not actually a goal of mine in and of itself, but ruckus there is. And this week is no different. So, what have I been up to that'll make you, ner vode, shake your heads and think, "Oh, boy, Raeth is at it again?"
A bit of preface:
So, there are about a zillion Mandalorian fan pages on Facebook and a solid handfull of Mandalorian-related feeds on Twitter. This is like Christmas/Lifeday for me every day, as all sorts of cool pictures and interesting stories are pouring across my monitor daily. And then it happened. I saw it. A wonderful group on Facebook (because, my prideful feelings aside, they are jate vode) called Mandalorians Unite (http://www.facebook.com/MandaloriansUnite
) started posted mini-posters with Mando'a lessons. If I had been wearing a buy'ce, it would have shot straight off my kovid!
I immediately though, "Aw, man, that should be US! Mando'a.org has been around for 6 years (OK, some of us not THAT long *coughcough*), WE should be leading the charge to disseminate Mando'a!" And, being the devious and impetuous sort of vod that I am, I did it.
So, yeah, I jumped right in and, ah heh heh, made a Facebook page and a Twitter feed for Mando'a.org. (Ducks for cover just in case Adi'karta has a blaster handy.)
My honest feelings are exactly what I thought. We are and have been the language geeks of the Mando'ade. And, we have wanted very much to grow our interest outside this wonderful little niche to share with others of like mind, drawing people into the Mando'a.org website while expanding the Mando'a.org presence outward. So, if you can get over the shock of yet another bout of my usual shenanigans, may I humbly invite you to check out OUR (NOT mine; it is for all of us, ner vode!) Facebook page and Twitter Feed:
I don't mind putting in the daily grunt work, but I know there are some core vode here (Adi'karta, of course, and Vlet immediately come to mind) I would gladly give all admin controls, etc., to, should you want it.
Let me know what you think (even if it is, "Haar'chak, Raeth! What have you gone and done now?!")
