(Sticky) Welcome to Orisla


Welcome to Orisla, Islanders.

We are making it so that this site is self-moderated by the users without direct intervention from site moderators. This is being done to take an honest look at the human collective and to attempt to improve it. We will be making changes to the site periodically in order to facilitate this, but while we are in beta we may need to close the site down periodically until we can implement those changes.
Users who create Topics or Sub-Categories will be in charge of moderating them, but you will receive a share of the income your Topic/Sub-Category generates.

Here is a quick breakdown of how much you'll receive:
Topics:

Recognition given to Topic:

User who made the topic: 50%

Site: 50%

Note: If you create a Topic with a Paywall, you will receive 90% of the Recognition given to access content behind the paywall and the site will receive 10%

 
Recognition given to comment within a Topic:

User who made topic: 10%

User who received recognition: 45%

Site: 45%

Sub-Categories:

Recognition given to a Topic in a Sub-Category:

User who made topic: 60%

Creator of the Sub-Category: 20%

Site: 20%

Note: this is the same for Paywalls created in Sub-Categories

 

Recognition given to a comment in a Topic in a Sub-Category:

User who made the comment: 60%

User who made the topic: 10%

User who created the Sub-Category: 10%

Site: 20%

 
Here is a little information on what the site and larger project hope to accomplish.

This project was created as a means of providing every person with everything they need to lead a happy and successful life.  It is my personal attempt as a case manager to fix some issues with the application of practical wrap-around care.

The funds gained from this project will go towards:

    Developing and implementing new programs for the website
    Modernizing emergency shelters into a self-sufficient community format.

The programs on this site will come in the form of amenities and services.
Some of these will have a cost and others will pay you.
For instance, the Reward Tab allows businesses to pay you to watch their advertisements.

The emergency shelters we will be constructing will not be bunk beds in a building with many other families / strangers, but will be individual homes with enough rooms and garden space to feed the family as well as provide the means for extra income in a variety of ways.
If you become a resident you will have total freedom as long as you meet at least once per month with the on site caseworker, and refrain from harming yourself or others.
Other organizations may have strict specifications as to who qualifies to become a resident, but here, we trust you to know when you're having an emergency.

Please make sure you bring your best to this program as we would love to see it grow until everyone has food to eat, a place to stay, and the means to find fulfilling work.

Job opportunity for American English native speakers

Hi. The small company i work for wants to teach English. I live in  eastern Europe region, most people here are Russian speaking, a few young people learned English at school. I decided that unlike 99% of such companies here, we should involve a native speaker in our classes.


Salary: $20 - 25 for one session (90 minutes). If we attract many students, you will be able to participate in as many as possible sessions, thus earning more. 

Requirements: 1) a native American English speaker 2) a kind, responsible person 3) we have huge time zone difference so when it's day time here, it will be probably night there. You may need to work at night 

Exactly what you will do? Kind of like personal assistant. I start a lesson on, say, "Airport" or "English numbers". You are available, on a video call (zoom). Together with students, I explain new vocabulary items. I may ask you to pronounce words, or if we have a text, you may be asked to read it so students can hear native speaker 

Simply comment and I will arrange a short interview. Thanks so much

Don't lose hope

I had an incredibly difficult time these days. Like I hit rock bottom and after a few days I am feeling much worse. I want to share lessons I learned:


1) This doesn't work narcissistic people. Kindness, understanding, empathy for others win at the end. You can make friends even aa an adult with social anxiety thanks to these qualities 

2)  Life is so complex. Many times, it gets much worse before it's suddenly starting to get much better suddenly 

3)  Say, I know exactly what I need to do but i just can't bring myself to do it. In suxh situations, although this is extremely difficult, I pretend I am feeling very happy and nothing is bad. Suddenly I may start believing it for a short time with happy mood. Then, before my mood starts to get worse, I quickly implement my plans. Implementing them gives me additional dopamine 

4) having pets, spending time in nature and observing how innocent little bugs, butterflies are can help me if everything else fails

5) visiting some building which waa built on, say, 1800s. I start to wonder how life waa in those days, i kinda sense history around me. Like... these walls have seen a lot of people, have heard a lot of conversations 


Of course, I don't live your life. It's easy to preach but hard to do to follow my own lessons for myself. I have understood that countless times i myself break these rules. but, i believe in them. 

Thanks so much for your time and attention to read my post. I feel grateful. Feel free to share yours

Do you believe in mermaids?

I haven't seen one, and hopefully not. But I do believe that mermaids exist, and other entities too. Has anyone experienced anything unusual relating to other entities?
