Macdonald, i respect you very much, both as a tech guru and as my elder(am 23, am not sure how old you are, but i guess you are my elder, so ethics, dictate i respect you.)
Numerous times u have shared invaluable answers to me and the rest of the techzim community, however i have to say that much as i respect and love being guided by your counsel. i fear that on the subject of my site being a mixed bag you are wrong. Allow me to educate you as to why i think you are lost on this one.!!!
first of all, allow me to say very few people are as educated and as tech as you are, i would say 80%, and , and this is a very big AND, i am targeting those people. I need that 80% on my site and thats how they like things. I am young and a novice, but i have considerable exerience in socia media marketing, i run a lot of facebook pages, with over 50 000 Zimbabweans and i can quite assure you that people love this mixed bag approach check my page www.facebook.com/kwayeedza or the most popular page on facebook called kuzeya, they all do bedroom stuff, and lemme reiterate that bedroom and sex sells, being a nerd/geek ou may not be interested in such things of the bedroom, but many people are, and i can easily substantiate this, first, sex and relationshippages arehot on facebook, secondly though my site is only two weeks old, sex and relationship questions have the highest views.
My site was inspired by techzim, then i headed over to question2answer and i was even more inspired. However its not all similar to techzim(apart from the design since we are using more or less the same theme)
yoanswers is a knowledge exchange on all aspects of life, relationships, sex, tech, food, shopping and so on.
so it would be either ignorance or sheer mischief to think they are the same think of yoanswers in yahoo answers perspective not techzim
having said that, i appreciate your constructive criticism.
Much as it hurts not having my favourite gurus, (you and somerset(somerset visited only once and did a hell lot of work answering about ten questions and never showed up again, guess he was disgusted by the bedroom stories too..)) i have been extremely luck in that a lot of my geek friends have joined and they share nearly the same wisdom that you guys dish out here, however your abscense can be felt and i sincerely hope that one day sufficient intrest shall arise in you to join it. If that doesnt happen well, its life and seems my friends are learning very fast and very soon we will have our own macdonalds and somerset on YoAnswers, infact, i think we already have, just that they dont use the same names...lol/....anways i am super-happy, that in the two weeks i have launched the site it already got 700 users, so in like 2 months its likely to be over 5000 and by year end i want it to be the biggest site in zim. yes i can and i will. I hope you share the same happiness with me and that you wish me all the best after all you are kinda my role model in tech.
we need you blessings...
once again sorry for the essay.
