ITSA Facebook page
« on: September 18, 2016, 11:30:19 PM »

I registered an official page for ITSA in Facebook (yes, I sold out!  :-[ )
ITSA - International Top Spinners Association

I have not yet made any posts or friended anybody as I don't want to do this myself. This is an "institution" (non-profit) page and we can assign different "editors" and "moderators" to it. If you want to help, send me a pm. We are looking for a few editors (at least one in English and one in Spanish). There should be very little work involved. It has to provide information about ITSA and of any contest and meeting. Other spintop related content to keep it active can be taken from this forum, for example.

Thanks to Fernando and those who sent me PM's. No group like this can work without volunteers.

ITSA has a Secretary and we finally found him a job: Neff is now a full administrator of the ITSA page. He has experience doing this for another group (disc golfers). He also happens to be the current world champ ;) He is now in charge and will take the decisions about editors, layout, content, etc. I am going fishing . . . ;D

Some of my old teammates and former athletes now have a Facebook page for Capital University Track and Field.  I guess I am selling out, too.  I will have to join Facebook to be a part of that and this.

Thank you ta0!

I think to start with, the page will mainly be used to:
1) share content, some old most new; videos, pictures, online resources etc.  In moderation though, we don't want to jam everybody's feed.
2) share top related events from around the world on the calendar

I have some other ideas for content as well;
Maybe do "spinner profiles" or "spinner of the week"
Maybe do "post your (partial) collection threads", like one month it's fingertops, next month it's big tops, etc etc

I will definitely need help.  The page needs to maintain an international flavor and also attract the various types of enthusiasts; collectors, finger spinners and trick junkies like me. I may not request any editors for a week or two until I wrap my head around this.

Please send ideas my way!

AH LA LA !! >:( >:(

being the president of ITSA
i have to tell you that i do not approve of the move
 a formal vote of the board of directors would have given a GO answer
if it had been done ...///

.../// when i type this : it means that i have shortened the text i had intended to write

it's like "tourner sa langue sept fois dans sa bouche avant de parler"
= to turn one's tongue seven times in your mouth before speaking

:P

in short, for various reasons : i won't open a facebook account
however if one of the gentlemen here could send me his alias and code name
i would be able to check the page 8)
thanx in advance

jim

Oops!
Jim, this is not a facebook personal account but an "institutional page". They are quite different. I believe it is public and visible to anybody, without requiring a facebook account.
I am not planning to start using Facebook myself.

I believe we had already voted on having some social media presence a while ago, but I guess we should discussed it on the board again.
The main goal of the page is to serve as point of contact and make ITSA known.

1) share content, some old most new; videos, pictures, online resources etc.  In moderation though, we don't want to jam everybody's feed.
I recommend that any "new content" is created outside Facebook (e.g. videos uploaded to Youtube) and linked to the page. Facebook tries hard to keep its users trapped inside and makes linking its content to the outside hard. On the other hand, it is great for creating large networks of people to communicate fast. But it is useless for discussing something in any depth.

Jim,

Like ta0, I thought this was pre-approved, I assure you there is no mutiny about.

Click this link and see if you can see the page:

https://www.facebook.com/ITSA-International-Top-Spinners-Association-328821264120793/?ref=aymt_homepage_panel

This is just a place to share videos, pictures and events.  Many who are no longer active here are active on facebook so this will be a fantastic way to bring together our community and share all that is spin top in public virtual space.
