@everyone What do you guys think of me setting up two channels for each topic: one for the SMEs to post their how-tos in and one for discussion? This might be a good way to prevent the how tos from getting lost in the discussions. Give a thumbs up if you think I should do it.
@everyone Okay, so I went ahead and split each topic into a lesson-only channel and a discussion channel. Hopefully this will preserve the how-to posts into an easy to access channel without creating too many channels so as to be difficult to read. Let me know if I messed anything up with the permissions.
@everyone If yesterday showed me anything, it’s our need to be self-reliant. Looking back at how the whole thing played out, it felt like a slow ambush between the police, BLM, and Antifa. Worse still is the (sadly predictable) media ambush. It sometimes feels like it’s us against the world (though it appears we have a lot of silent backers out there). In any event, let’s keep up our work here. It is our strength, intelligence, and ingenuity that separate us from our enemies. And the heavens know we’re gonna need good medics in the future!
@everyone Reminder that all of the rules that apply to our main server apply on this server.
@everyone We've added two new topics: financier and techie. The former is for discussing personal finance and investment, and the latter is for discussing computers, phone, etc. We need an SME for each, so if you have experience in these areas and are willing to pitch in, please send me a DM.
@everyone Please welcome @Tycho Brahe as an SME in finance. Mike has a lot of experience in the area of finance and we're grateful for his willingness to share it with us.
@everyone ZOG smashed our main server. Stand by while we regroup and bounce back *more powerful than you can possibly imagine.*
@everyone We've had an influx of lots of new people over the last few days and I'd like to formally welcome everyone. Meanwhile, I think one or two of them is a mechanic and I'm looking for a mechanic SME to replace the one we lost a while back. If interested, please DM me. Anyone else who wants me to consider addding topics is welcome to DM about them as well. Also DM me if you want an invite to our fitness server.
We recommend @everyone stop in at the <#362542521659686922> channel, where @Brandon Ironside- ND has taken the initiative to post a pair of very helpful articles on the road to self-improvement.
@everyone Channel list has been re-organized into categories. Should help make things a little more compact.
@everyone @bostoneuropean Has been designated as an SME in mechanics. His area of specialty is in car sales, and he can offer good advice when it comes to purchasing and selling cars. If you think you have something to offer as an SME, or an idea for a channel that is not already covered, please DM me.
@everyone new <#390542955079008257> channel by popular demand
@everyone new <#390735997639589891> channel for practical, durable and quality made products that are made to last.
@everyone We want to thank @ThisIsChris for everything he's done for this server since we added academics to the mix. In light of his great work, and in keeping with IE's general vision of encouraging leaders into leadership positions, I'm going to transfer ownership of the server to him. We know he'll continue to do a high-energy and top-quality job!
Thanks @Deleted User! I look forward to continuing to curate this platform that has become a great knowledge resource by and for IE's members. I encourage members to ping me whenever they have an idea for improving the server.
@everyone the #finance channel has been split into <#393499059752796160> and <#352760194775777282>

For all Practical Skills you can now ping all the people for that skill directly like so:
The people reached by these tags are anyone in the server who have contributed some knowledge on that subject ever before in the history of the server
(Similar tags for Academics coming soon)
@everyone A great idea from @William Russell : the Life-Skills section now has the <#459564946296930324> channel!
@everyone As suggested by @Der Seeteufel - SD , we now have a <#469988837175721985> channel! Also, I reordered the practical skill channels to group related things
@everyone Bringing IE-wide a channel that @Evan Thomas has had success with on his local server: <#480938615451680794> now in the Life Skills section of the server! This is an area to share and discuss ideas that help you move forward in life. We'll discuss how to add to your skill set and hone the one you already have. Success is your duty, obligation and responsibility! It will be a place to discuss mindset, removing bad habits and creating better ones, entrepreneurship, sales, understanding that it's our duty to become the best version of ourselves. Success is your duty, obligation and responsibility!
@everyone For Students a quick reminder! Feel free to drop homework questions in <#387060078433271808> for help, assistance, and solutions. You can mention <@&387091385075105804> to get help from fellow members who have specifically notified for any and all homework help requests. Also, if you would like to join the <@&387091385075105804> role to help your fellow members then send me a DM.
@everyone new rule: Any further discussion on what is "trad" is prohibited. Select prior discussions on the topic are subject to removal.
