I've been thinking of contacting some esteemed researchers to see if they would be interested in conveying some of their theories and insights with us as a guest here on DTV. I have yet to create a draft proposal that outlines this invite. The only concern I have regarding this is, how it would unfold here on DTV. What platform do we have that would enable a concise and intellectual conversation in real time. We are familiar with how the forums work and what responses are required and when because we as a community have an understanding of the individual members who post.

All suggestions welcome

. Do you think it would be feasible?
. Would we be able to accommodate any guests who where willing to take up an invite?
. What to include in a draft proposal?
. People to invite/contact?

So here's my vision, if something like this was on the Landing page I'm pretty sure the Lurkers would come out of the woodwork.

A lot of egos on here ready to pounce.

I would give him a thread where he can respond and only him.
The questions and banter would be on a different thread.

To have an invited guest, for his protection and that of his message, this would be a good way of controlling the environment around him or her.

Invited Guess category would be a great addition to this forum.
But it has to be done right!

I invited my friend James Horak to DTV last year.

It was a debacle.

Guest researchers + DTV = Shitstorm

I think the platform we currently have on the forums leaves guests open to ridicule.
I think Noentrys' suggestion regarding a closed response thread would be a great idea, thus any guest could choose who they would respond to without it becoming saturated with unintelligible conversation. If we got our thinking caps on and tweaked how we could deploy this, it would be a great addition to DTV in terms of constructive debates and member participation. There are a lot of versed members on here who have excellent knowledge in varying fields and this would only encourage a more creative community.
Would be a real shame to bury something that would be beneficial to us all without giving it some serious consideration.

:cheers:

The Invited guest thread would easily be achieved It can be locked and unlocked.
Mods could delete any other post that might sneak in.

And if it is successful. I am sure Lucas would create a platform for this purpose.

I do like the idea of bringing in an Invited Guest.
The best suggestion for the forum, I have heard to date.

Cheers Noentry, But I have a feeling that this idea along with this thread will just slip into the Depths of DTV archives :( never to be seen or heard of again.
Lets just talk about Chairs and toilets and Lamps

The concept is good, especially if egos could be checked @ the door.

IMO, no serious researcher would do it. They would, in their minds, risk their good name appearing on a fringe forum.

Which is, of course, terribly wrong. You may call it Vanity, as well...

There's not much of really open-minded scientists or scholars nowadays. I'm afraid that the kind of researchers which would give their left testicle to appear on the DTV are, unfortunately, only the types of Leo Zagami and the rest of bullshiters and fakers.

Just saying. I might be wrong.

And i hope i'm wrong.

EDIT :

And i'm not saying that without a reason. I, for one, was ridiculed by my peers and colleagues after i told them about my internet activities.

Stripping a thinker of his or her ego would be a mammoth task, but i think this would be possible with engagement. I guess with most threads on here, only those with interest would respond and of course the odd troll or 2, but these can be easily taken out of the equation if necessary. Would it not be possible to bar someone from a thread if seen to be stirring things up. I'm sure Lukas would be able to implement some code to enable this.
Just throwing out ideas :flop:
