You are not the first to have that problem. I forgot what the solution was, if there was one; most people just wait to get on a computer and then unignore.

You'll have to use the normal non-mobile site. Or memorize the URL to directly access the settings for un-ignoring(the page is there for mobile, but there is no way to access it without using the exact URL)

I found the old version on my PC, and managed to reinstall it. Perhaps later I will attempt to get the new version working... but not in the mood for that right now. xD

RE: The All-in-one READ ME FIRST Topic.

I'm wondering if maybe this intro could be expanded and modified slightly, to represent SS as a somewhat "less-insane, more supportive" place than it's been in times past.

(And/or, maybe there could be a separate thread for what I have in mind. And yeah, I can make them, just throwing the idea out here while it's on my mind.)

Guide to Introducing Yourself

The current Guide emphasizes what not to disclose, but I think it'd be useful to encourage people to identify some information about themselves, in their welcome post.

Yeah, no personal addresses... but knowing what country or state a person is in, what level of school they're in (or which ones they've completed or left), and other details about their situation can help a lot in quickly understanding a person's situation.

I can think of a range of additional things to add to that, which perhaps should be a separately-posted "Guide to Introducing Yourself." Of course, people can introduce themselves in any way they want, but knowing a bit about people's interests, family, references they know about, and so on, can help lead to a more productive discussion more quickly -- particularly if they're looking for advice or other feedback.

Guide to Related Content

On another note, I think it's worth introducing people to some basic critiques of factory-model education, like Ken Robinson's Changing Education Paradigms, and maybe also a brief history of SS, written from the perspective of where we (and education transforming in general) is at in 2014. And, some things like an overview of alternative ways to learn (that could be yet another guide, constructed in part from the contents of Alternative Learning & Income.)

And so on. This could also blend into various discussions about making a book, comics, a YouTube series, and other things some of us have been discussing.

The reference to the Frag Arena could also use an update. Maybe keep the reference, but use it as a means of explaining what we'd prefer to keep off the forums.

Thoughts?

I like what you've done with the announcement.

Hmm. It's possible that the numerous replies to this topic might be daunting for first time readers, though. Perhaps we could split this thread, keep important welcome announcements in the All-in-one Readme and move the discussion thereof somewhere else?
