"we Can't Solve Problems By Using The Same Kind Of Thinking We Used When We Created Them."

 


 

                                    The Peace Train

 

Hello EP ~ I would like to improve the Experience Project by offering this idea as a 

 

means of resolution on a daily basis for the users of EP.

 

Unlike the Q & A section of EP, which is becoming more a battleground for personal 

 

issues between members I suggest a similar forum , where members can air their 

 

grievances with other members and can get issue resolution in a democratic way , 

 

without the need for the constant bickering , the personal attacks which DO happen 

 

every day ~ without the formation of "cliques" and ( dare I say it ) cyber~gangs.

 

All these things are happening ~ if you choose to acknowledge them , then that is half 

 

the battle won. The idea of being able to resolve issues in a public forum is to enable 

 

both parties to see that what they do and how they conduct themselves , has a negative 

 

impact on the other members of the community , by making them aware of what the 

 

community thinks.

 

Tangible resolutions , besides blocking and flagging , ( which just don't work with 

 

certain people , it's been proven ) like being made to apologise , not just to the 

 

other party , but to the community as a whole, for absurd and childish behaviour, may 

 

prove to do more good and prevent escalation of conflicts.

 

With this in mind , I offer an example :

 

I have a conflict with xxxxx ~ I take my conlfict to the forum. They are given the 

 

opportunity to respond, within a time frame, and then the community is able to make 

 

it's views on the conflict known ~

 

instead of being able to vote for "best answer", or take sides,the community has best 

 

conflict resolution ideas ~ NO VIOLENCE WILL BE ACCEPTED , FROM ANY PARTICIPANT.ONLY 

 

SOLUTIONS.

 

The core idea behind this , is to make people aware of the way their behaviour impacts 

 

on this community, their relationships with people in general, and the positive ways to 

 

step away from the shadows of conflict, towards peace.

 

Albert Einstein said it best ; 

 

"Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius -- and a lot of courage -- to move in the                                                                                                                          opposite direction."

Nice work Anj

We support the idea of members communicating openly to resolve issues though this is a private matter between members. A healthy dialog usually leads to good results, however personal attacks or other negative remarks towards members is not acceptable.
