How To: Build an uber planning site at low cost in under 30 minutes. NOTE: If you are super paranoid about your anonymity the steps contained in this guide require java script and open you up to a number of attacks that could result in a malicious person obtaining your IP. (If determined enough) These are all public platforms. If you would like to know how to mitigate these issues please refer to: http://forums.whyweprotest.net/235-how/increase-your-anonymity-using-vm-vpn-38295/ Steps: 1. Make networks on both Live Communities - Chatroll.com and Ning. Create your own social network for anything. 2. Make a twitter feed for your locals to follow. 3. Embed chatroll's client into your ning. 4. Embed WWP's RSS, Digg, twitter, all manner of information related to Project Chanology and local interests into your ning. 5. Theme the whole thing. 6. Invite locals RL and online. Have them use built in platform tools to recruit others. 7. When you're done send an email with your city and url to firstname.lastname@example.org so you can be included in the Anonymous directory. Now you have: A forum, chat client (with the ability to be anonymous), image board (via chatroll), twitter mobile alerts, image repository, video repository, the latest news related to Project Chanology, event calendar, etc. All for free, easily replaceable if the admin fails at life, and with little to no effort. No hardware, no donations, little HTML understanding needed, no stress. Need an easy way to transfer information and work on projects secretly with a group of people? Try https://www.google.com/accounts/Ser...s.google.com/&ltmpl=homepage&rm=false. UPDATES DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND: Notes - Twitter: For those that don't understand how twitter works, if you get an account together with some trusted anons you can have an automated mobile announcement system. Have say, 5-6 trusted users who have access to the account and then have the rest of your local group follow the account. That way no matter who has who's number a twitter update can be sent out to everyone's phone without phone numbers involved. All those who subscribe to the twitter can then receive text messages directly from the source instead of attempting to relay messages back and forth while on the move. Twitter Widget: Setup can be found at:http://www.widgetbox.com/widget/twidget Polls? Need to have a vote?: Embed a poll in whatever discussion you're having:http://www.99polls.com/ is a great service to facilitate this. TV: As for TV, if any of you other cells idle in chat/irc/ning whatever. A good way to create conversation is with sticky content. Take a gander at platforms like www.mogulus.com/. I know this sounds stupid, but simply giving people something to watch, like a little TV widget, on your website while chatting increases the chance someone will hang around. Setting up a chat room: Chatroll - 1.Manage network>Features 2.The drag a text box into your site layout. 3.Save 4.Go back to your main page. 5.Press the edit button on your new text box. 6.Copy paste the Chatroll widget code. Ning - Simply add the "Chat" feature in manage network>features Ning Notes Feature: Adding the notes module gives you a "wiki-like" setup there too.

You are building a social network, not a wiki. This is about social interaction, not information. Leverage the platforms and use them properly. For informing the public and educating new users I'd recommend building an "Information" tab into your ning navigation bar. To do this: Go to Manage>tabs>add new tab>create page>title: Information then go to the new page you've created and populate it with something similar to: Code: <center><a href="http://i40.tinypic.com/2ew1tt5.jpg" target= "http://anonsf.ning.com/forum/topics/2034710:Topic:11962"></a> <a href="http://anonsf.ning.com/forum/topics/2034710:Topic:11962" target="_blank"><img src= "http://i40.tinypic.com/2ew1tt5.jpg"></a></center> <p><a href="http://forums.whyweprotest.net/">Why We Protest Forum</a></p> <p>The primary hub for Project Chanology, where Anons and others from around the world meet and<br> communicate.</p> <p><a href="www.forum.exscn.net/">ExScientologist Forums</a></p> <p>A forum predominantly used by "Old Guard"- people who were intent on disassembling the Church of Scientology<br> before Anonymous came into the picture.</p> <p><a href="http://888chan.org/">888chan.org</a></p> <p>One of the few chans that remain friendly to Project Chanology, mostly because it was started by and is mostly populated by those involved in the project. Due to its nature as a chan, it is relatively free of drama and other sources of fail, although it is slow at times.</p> It should end up looking like this: Also, setup a thread with recommendations to new users. Here is the one we use: Tracking Traffic: You can go into your management tab and add http://www.google.com/analytics/ and/or an IP tracking system. This has helped me identify what features were popular with my local group and overt attacks. I can't stress how important it is to leverage 3rd party social tools. Don't reinvent the wheel just because you can. Administration (Note: This is stuff I learned over the years): Have one person that holds all the keys. This person should stay neutral and focus on keeping the site running properly at all costs. Preferably, they should keep out of local drama and only weigh-in if it is a cell breaking issue. Have a set of moderators that act as a counsel. They should dictate social direction and represent a broad set of ideals. (moralfags, OG, hatefags, oldfags, newfags) If an administrator loses his shit, abandon ship and rebuild. if a moderator loses their shit, remove them immediately and replace them with someone that represents their interests. Rinse repeat until you've got a well oiled machine. I think it's important that we focus on society building in 09. We've talked so much about protest tactics, information, Scientology, when we forget there needs to be culture and some form of local sub culture for prosperity. You've gotta give people more than just another protest group if we're ever going to amount to anything but a bunch of internet savvy weirdos with shitty signs in front of a Scientology building. I'd advocate giving your users information on other topics to drive community interaction. Example: We have a web tv channel feed that sits right next to our chat box. Plenty of nights we all just sit and watching it, discussing things unrelated to Project Chanology. We also have RSS feeds from tech related news, which fosters communication on topics non-Chanology related. After a year, talking purely about Project Chanology has become pretty boring. Survival, growth of our local communities will rely upon building social groups, going beyond just "protesting". Stagnation leads to lack of interest. Find ways to mitigate it.
