Cyprusscene.com – Is it a forum? No way!
By Chris Elliott…….
Many people say of us or ask us are you a forum and the answer is, No way!
When we originally set up cyprusscene.com 3 years ago we decided we wanted to publish full news articles or reviews for the community including pictures, videos, and soundtracks and these are created by us from our own experiences or those from our many contributors and we are very happy for these articles to be shared by others. You could say we are a News and Review website and we have no interest in claiming we have exclusive news. We leave that conclusion to our readers who return time and time again to read more.
Forums in the main are a compilation of comments that readers make in answer to other readers which can be very informative but the down side to this is that there will always be a fringe element who wish to make barbed or critical comments which upset others but providing the individual forums have good moderators then control is exercised over those who would like to control or influence others.
Here on cyprusscene many readers pass comments and even ask for help or are offered help by others and we also approve most comments except those from persons who would try to spoil the pleasure of readers visiting our pages.
So there we have it, we are not a forum and see no value in creating one as we would prefer to be unique and are very proud when people say of cyprussene.com “It is so professional!” and considering we are all hobbyist writers and contributors, that has to be the highest accolade we could expect.
Hearing news of a very inflammatory and denigrating thread that was published and removed very recently from a local forum, we say again, no way on cyprusscene.com. We are here for the community and not for those seeking their own satisfaction by trying to belittle others.
It was noted that the local newspaper Cyprus Today chose to run this story theme as their front page article in this past weekend’s issue. Is there no good news to write about?
