Now if YOU think you are a oh so wonderful leader, then please try to act like one, address the situation like one

So from your message above, what I was saying before is what you are saying today. Thats where you missed applying your mind and wisdom.

I did not have a lot of fun to invest money from my savings writing very detailed messages here, spending hours. I have much better things to do in life apart from making money, where I am struggling to save my time and use it effeciently and carefully. I work for several non-profit associations and that keeps me busy.

While joining the module team, I never wanted any kind of leadership and shall never ever want to have one. I do have commitments to several non-profits which takes a substantial ammount of my time and I am always in a battle of saving my time.

Sit down and calculate the number of hours I have spend in writing those messages. For what? To make the community aware of a situation that I could see it transparent several weeks ago, a bad luck to XOOPS community.

And what did you do? Eventually you ended up in creating an atmosphere which only spoke against my activity of making the XOOPS community aware of, for no personal interest of mine. You did not even give a thought of the reasons and depths of my thinking in regards to what was I talking.

I am certainly not so young to enter into any kind of mind battles, hurtings, word games, etc. Also I am not interested of throwing stones of words by such a discussion here. Awareness within the community means also that you become aware of what you have done in the past, recognise your own mistake and respect the activity of others.

Thats what you need to interospect and see it constructively, rather than entering into word of battles with me or anyone else.

A leader is a leader because he/she has a forsieght and wisdom. Catz DOES NOT. DJ/phppp also DOES NOT. They are not my enemies. It was his action that speaks. DJ and Catz could be good programmers but should never be leaders. Both are unwise.

BTW: we should have reached out to the board and everyone on it, but we didn't have that authority. Speaking for myself, I had permission to do what I was told.

The reason why DJ wrote to you such an answer to your resignatioon was nothing because he never had in his mind to have others as official teams belonging to XOOPS organisation. Why did you need to resign? What official designation did you have? Nothing!

Apart from that, Community co-ordination was for me a very big question, looking from the point of view the activity was described, something I saw with very big eyes...

To get so many teams coming togather and functioning harmoniously is not a task of people who are not experienced. There are several aspects which would push many constructive energies to exit, if the fulcrum is not centered properly. It is like the wheel of a cycle that rotates off-centered. And thats what DJ did and does to continue....

Eventually only a group of some innocent people came togather, invested in some group activities and lost their valuable time. Whats happening at all, you see?

Off Topic, but is there actually a mod.dev team? I read here that the modules team was no longer in existence.

Uh well, I understand you...

Yes, I was in the module team, hoping to help the XOOPS community in the rebuild. However, before a week or so, I wrote the members internally by email that I am not interested to be active in such an environment that has been created by DJ.

Infact, a day before I openly wrote those protest messages, I even offered DJ in a private conversation, XOOPS Server Management in a team. Even here, I am not interested to work with him until he accepts and apologises himself for his actions to the affected people like Tom, Akitson, Darcy, etc. (Here, I was and am not affected)

During registration here years ago, I wanted to register deeps but had a tipping mistake with my german keyboard so it got deepy in there. I did not care for a change until DJ changed it personally before a few weeks. But then instead of changing it to what I wanted years ago i.e. deeps, I thought of having it changed as Draj!

Well, Thats the point: Module development team has no official status, which was planned, officially announced, formed and founded by Akitson.

All this because of the behavioural patterns of DJ, which I openly brought them into the limelight.

Oh dear,...

I was just wondering, if you thought of myself (and others...) to be a really young, inexperienced or naive person!

However thanks for the advice!!!

Your problem is that you are not able to accept loyality by several others who have been associated directly or indirectly with xoops.

It is therefore, I regard you as a very good developer, at the sametime a disaster as a team leader, while appreciating your contribution to the project overall.

No one appointed me.

My principles, values in life and philosophy did nominate myself to represent those frustrations or unfair situations and protest against them...

The recent loss could be seen here:

Re: dev.xoops.org seems to be down

Hi Herko,

despite about 15 serious attempts to get in touch with the current registrant of the xoops.org domain -onokazu

Not the Foundation, but Kazumi Ono would be legally responsible then, for everything that happens on the xoops.org domain.


Xoops.com

Yes, you gave a very accurate and a true answer.

I had checked a while ago for xoops.com, which is in your name.

Now coming to the discussion of violation:

NO. You personally are responsible for xoops.com for any violation since thats the current registrant. So actually you, Herko need to demonstrate to the community to transfer it to the XOOPS Foundation. Only thereafter you will be totally out of the legal responsibility.

If you need a formal application, then I apply to you as a community member to transfer the xoops.com in the name of XOOPS Foundation.

Xoops.net
You as a chairman of XOOPS Foundation need to give a litigation notice to the owner immediately. If you do not, the law assumes that the violation is tolerated.

Xoops.org

In the view of the trademark law, there is NO CHANCE to win the domain, should there be a dispute.

For all the violations, myWeb Japan as the current registrant is responsible and not a natural person. I beleive this assuming that myWeb Japan is a legal registered entity, however if it remains to be unregistered entity and the business conducted by a natural person, than things are different. If this natural person is the one who you mention, then you are right.

However, a really smart lawyer would sue the XOOPS Foundation and enter in the lawsuit as third party complainant 1) myWeb Japan as well as third party complainant 2) you (Herko, xoops.com) for all violations!!!

Further to this, I advice to the XOOPS Foundation to:

1. Clear some legal aspects regarding the domains
2. Correct the Terms of Use and privacy aspects
3. Use only domains which belongs to XOOPS Foundation.

Uh, we did go very much off topic, however I thought it was necessary to add a few lines regarding the discussion.

Hi BS,

They are two different set of legal objects and they could be related. Official sites may or may not be belonging to XOOPS Foundation.

If the foundation owns the domain as a registrant, it is legally responsible for all legal challanges before the respective court EVEN IF THE DOMAIN activity IS NOT OFFICIAL.

What counts is the Entry as the Registrant and exceptionally as the administrative contact and NOT the official status....

This follows that XOOPS Foundation represented by the Chairman would have to accept the legal responsibility of all the violation of Data under Data Protection Act, regardless of any official status as this is not the sole basis of its legality, should there be any kind of violation.

Herko

Do you mean to say that XOOPS Foundation has nothing to do or say in the XOOPS Project?

Do you mean to say that XOOPS Foundation has nothing to do with Xoops.org?

I am trying to understand the involvement of XOOPS Foundation with Xoops.org...
