Shouldn't it be IndiSpire? Tongue out

or is IndiSpired past tense of IndiSpire? Innocent

Anita
from Bhubaneswar

It should be IndiSpire if we are referring to the Noun form (as the Name of this new initiative).

Else, IndiSpired (liked Inspired) if we are referring to the Verb form!

Both are apt! Innocent

indispired post is more apt, as these posts have come up after being inspired at indispire. so rightly it is in past tense. btw, you could have included me in the snapshot but alas.

Anita

Rio, Ranjith took the snapshot before you submitted your latest one! Innocent

I was just joking Anita,

Hi Rio, read your story and found it very engaging. Was it all really true - the dream, chandrabhaga and the money? Innocent

Anita

I love the IndiSpire idea.

I have 1 suggestion-

Could we please have no Voting for this? Else, the Voting can be on the lines of the idea-submission for IndiSpire- in which we see only max 5 latest Voters. Our Post need not be anonymous, but no one knows the total number of Votes of our entry. The total Vote Count for all the submissions & the true 'Top-Post' will be known on the last day.

I feel this will-

A) Earn the quality posts their deserving Votes

B) Encourage everyone to read & comment on the Posts & then Vote if they like it. (just like we are doing for the IndiSpire ideas now)

I think present setup is just fine. If originator name is disclosed then false voting would come up. One will start voting to get back vote for his topic. And spamming would start.
Anita

Rio, I am not referring to the IndiSpire idea/prompt stage. It's just fine! Anonymity works great and an idea is selected on the basis of its strength.

My Suggestion is that let us have the same set-up for our IndiSpired Post/Entry where once we submit our entry, we can see only the latest 5 voters and not the total number of votes or voters (just like in the IndiSpire idea/prompt now)

Ohhk, that idea is worth considering. I got the lines wrong.

I was thinking that even this could happen...and it has...

Now der are two latest posts on home page under Indispire which are on unrelated topics- NaMo and Delhi's crumbling metro infrastructure....

There shd b a way to chk d content of the posts as well, otherwise jst to get featured on homepg ppl can do this too n not just b back from d dead!!

Anita

Amrita, Agree with you. But, how will the system judge whether we have posted relevant content?

If it looks for the hashtag in our Post, we may be smart enough to have employed the required hashtag & yet have strayed outside the boundaries of the Topic! Innocent

Anita, the only way is to report to IndiTeam using the report button and they will remove it.......But still these posts have their 15 min (or hours) of fame.

Anita
from Bhubaneswar

Yes, Saket. IndiTeam removed those Posts pretty fast, but they enjoyed the IB Home-Page advantage for some time!

Wonder why the IndiSpire mails have 'Skyscanner meet page' linked up with that 'IndiSpire bulb image' at the top instead of the real thing? Undecided

Is the winner going to be decided upon the number of votes? If that is the case it would suck. It's like Chetan Bhagat trumping Malcolm Gladwell (at least in India).

Ranjith

The topic would be selected based on votes.

There is nothing like winners for a topic.

I wasnt blogging for awhile.. Saw this interesting Email about IndiSpire and jumped in.

Wonderful initiative, Very motivating indeed.

Submitted my post for edition-3.

I love this Indispire format!Smile

Great going bro,
I think closing time of 10pm should be extended to 12 pm.
Ranjith

Keeping the closing time at 10 would ensure that bloggers don't lose their sleep trying to submit at the last moment Cool

Only contest posts need to be submitted at last moment.

Because of this initiative after so many days I have taken my writing seriously...and I'm satisfied with the outcomes. :)

Started a series of survivor and hope a film will be made on it,

Great!

It will be made into A suspense thriller with multiple intervals inbetween, 2 or 3 or more depending upon the number of posts you write.Smile 

Gaurab

I think it should be made mandatory for the people who are suggesting the topic and who are voting for it to write a post on it because I feel people are suggesting and voting without taking it seriously. It will stop people from casually posting ideas and voting from them. 

One can not force people I think. If someone doesn't want to write after voting for idea or donot wish to write on his proposal even.
Gaurab

@Rio - But it will lead to casual voting and may be topics on which people would actually like to write may not get featured. I thought the motive was to promote writing not voting, isn't it?

can someone brief me about it a little more! Also, how do we vote for a topic? by simply tweeting about it?

 

Nandini Deka

under each topic is "vote for this idea" button --- you have to click on that to vote, you can also tweet but that will be tweeting not voting

You have to click on the vote button below the idea. If the topic of your choice gets enough votes, it will be the next week's topic to blog on

Indispire running strong and sturdy.
Congo's Saket, this time your idea it is.

When will my idea get selected ? Undecided

Ah, Thanks Rio. Feel happy. Noticed just now.

yes, 12 o clock pls!! I feel like I have just completed a marathon by submitting for the last prompt- "dream library".Cry

My bad, that I missed to check for the last 6days, though Frown

Okay, I take a two-month hiatus from blogging because of my twelfth grade board exams and IB launches this cool new intiative.

Note to self: never put blog on hiatus.

Anyway, kudos to Team IB for this venture! :)

Submitted for this week Cool

Very fast, and congo's to you at last, topic winner. I too submitted today.

Submitted for the previous week as well, just in time
