Why agonia ?

Why not ? Agonia means exactly what's supposed to mean!
If you thought Agonia means decay, you were wrong.
Agonia comes back from latin meaning fight, struggle, preoccupation.
In ancient greek was: "agOn" and meant competition.
Public contest.Fight. Struggle!
"Struggle for what... " you'll ask. Struggle to be the best. Struggle to win. Struggle to achieve Something.
"And How ?" you will ask. With us. You write and create - we will tell our opinion. We write - you may tell yours. You are free to join an infinite variety of mind games that will lead you to a personal victory and to our victory, the victory of this community. Because YES! from now on you are part of a community.

Get ready to have an opinion, to engage polemics, to be attacked by other's opinion, and to be destroyed by words, prepare yourself for Agony.
But your Agony is a different thing right now. You know it, It's "Agonia".
It's something else. It's the battle.
There aren't more left to say...
May the best one win. Because in the end, we all win!

  • b. Cum pot s� introduc un text al unui autor clasic? Accesezi pagina "Clasici" (sub linkul Membri) �i g�se�ti acolo un link "Adaug� un text consacrat" care te duce �n pagina de ad�ugare. Acolo verifici �nt�i dac� autorul exist� �n lista de clasici �i dac� nu exist� po�i accesa link-ul de acolo ca s� �l adaugi.
  • c. C�t dureaz� p�n� c�nd �mi este aprobat un text? �n func�ie de nivelul t�u de acces textul apare automat sau trebuie aprobat de un editor. Editori fac aceast� munc� voluntar, �ns� de obicei textele �i comentariile sunt aprobate �ntr-un interval de c�teva minute p�n� la c�teva ore. Dac� ai trimit foarte multe texte deodat� e posibil ca o parte din acestea s� fie aprobate doar �n ziua urm�toare
  • d. C�te texte pot trimite �ntr-o zi? Tehnic po�i trimite oric�te texte �ntr-o zi. Totu�i, este recomandat s� nu trimi�i mai multe de 3 texte unul dup� altul �i mai mult de 5 texte �n aceea�i zi. Toate textele vor fi aprobate p�n� la urm�, �ns� este posibil ca o parte din ele s� fie am�nate pentru a doua zi pentru a nu intoxica prima pagin� a listei de texte cu materialele aceluia�i autor.
  • e. De ce mi-a fost refuzat un text (sau clasificat ca Atelier sau PaginaAutor)? Cite�te cu aten�ie regulile site-ului. Cel mai probabil este c� ai �nc�lcat una din regulile elementare. Textele trimise la Atelier sunt �nso�ite de obicei de un comentariu explicativ. Textele trimise �n pagina de autor sunt texte care nu respect� anumite reguli ale site-ului sau care nu au caracter literar �i/sau cultural. De asemenea, textul poate fi trimis �n "PaginaAutor" �n cazul �n care autorul acelui text a �nc�lcat una din regulile siteului printr-un comentariu publicat �n subsolul propriului text sau dac� a direc�ionat chiar el comentariile �ntr-o zon� care nu are leg�tur� cu materialul �n cauz�.
  • f. Ce sunt "subiectele fierbin�i"? De ce apar acolo �i texte slabe? Subiectele fierbin�i sunt texte care au acumulat un num�r mare de comentarii relevante. Se �nt�mpl� uneori ca unele texte slabe s� genereze discu�ii aprinse �i atunci aceste texte �ntr� automat la "Subiecte Fierbin�i". Tentativele de for�are a clas�rii unui text �n categoria subiecte fierbin�i va fi sanc�ionat� cu reclasarea acelui text �i plasarea lui doar �n "Pagina Autor".
  • g. Am tradus un text. Cum �l introduc �n site? Dac� textul pe care l-ai tradus apar�ine unui clasic �i nu exist� �nc� pe site va trebui s� �ntroduci mai �nt�i textul �n varianta original� folosind op�iunea de ad�ugare de texte clasice (vezi mai sus cum), s� a�tep�i aprobarea acestuia de un editor �i apoi s� trimi�i traducerea conform instruc�iunilor ce urmeaz�. Dup� ce faci Login, accesezi textul pentru care vrei s� �nscrii o traducere �i faci click pe butonul "Trimite" din rubrica "Traduceri ale acestui text" aflat� exact �nainte de zona de comentarii. Vei fi trimis c�tre un formular care con�ine (pentru referin��) varianta original� a textului �i un spa�iu �n care po�i introduce traducerea ta. Nu uita s� selectezi limba �n care ai tradus textul. Traducerea va ap�rea dup� ce va fi verificat� �i aprobat� de un editor de pe limba �n care ai tradus textul.
  • h. Cum pot s� m� retrag de pe acest site? Conturile create pe site sunt permanente. Pentru c� site-ul con�ine discu�ii realizate prin comentarii la texte, comentariile nu pot fi modificate/�terse, fiindc� ar exista riscul pierderii sensului comentariilor urm�toare. Dac� decizi s� ��i �ncetezi activitatea pe site este suficient s� ��i retragi toate textele �i atunci contul t�u va disp�rea automat din lista de membri. Pagina va r�m�ne �n continuare asociat� cu toate comentariile pe care le-ai f�cut de-a lungul particip�rii tale pe acest site.
  • i. Cum pot edita/corecta/modifica un comentariu? Vezi r�spunsul anterior.
  • j. Cum pot ob�ine un nivel mai mare de acces? �n mod normal atunci c�nd �ndepline�ti condi�iile de promovare vei fi remarcat �i promovat automat de un editor. Interesul nostru este ca to�i cei care merit� un nivel de acces mai mare s� fie promovat pentru ca munca de aprobare a editorilor s� fie c�t mai mic�. Asigur�-te c� respec�ii regulile de func�ionare ale site-ului �i po�i fi promovat chiar �i �n prima lun� de activitate, dac� activitatea ta pe site este semnificativ�. Nu uita s� folose�ti un nume complet �i decent chiar dac� acesta reprezint� doar un pseudonim, �i s� completezi detaliile despre tine, �n special biografia �i informa�iile de contact. Autori cu nume precum "Z�na Zorilor" sau "Cipcirip" nu vor putea primi niciodat� nivel mai mare de 0, iar �n unele cazuri materialele trimise de pe astfel de conturi nu vor putea fi incluse �n listele principale de texte �i comentarii.
  • k. Cum pot face s� primesc mai multe vizite �i mai multe comentarii pe textele mele? Cuv�ntul cheie este INTERAC�IUNE. Cite�te textele altora �i implic�-te �n discu�iile de pe site care te intereseaz� �i �n care te sim�i �n largul t�u. Atunci c�nd g�se�ti un text interesant nu ezita s� la�i un comentariu. Dac� ceea ce scrii are substan�� este foarte probabil ca autorul acelui text �i viitori vizitatori ai textului s� doreasc� s� afle cine e�ti �i cum scrii. Posteaz� texte �ngrijite �i �ine cont de p�rerile celor care te viziteaz�, chiar dac� aceste p�reri sunt critice. ��i vei asigura astfel respectul �i interesul constant al celorlal�i autori activi.
  • l. De ce nu pot schimba adresa de email? O deficien�� a sistemului de mesaje nu permite schimbarea interactiv� a adresei de email. Pentru a face aceast� opera�iune po�i trimite un email de pe noua adres� email la adresa [email protected] �n care s� specifici c� dore�ti aceast� modificare, �mpreun� cu pseudonimul �i parola curent�.
  • m. Cum se poate pierde nivelul de acces? Fiecare autor va primi nivelul de acces care i se potrive�te �n func�ie de activitatea �i comportarea pe site. Nivelul de acces nu reprezint� un barometru al valorii unui autor ci doar o clasificare tehnic� care �i asigur� accesul la diverse facilit��i ale site-ului. De exemplu, dac� un autor cu nivel 1000 public� texte sau comentarii ofensatoare �i nu se conformeaz� avertismentelor editorilor, nivelul lui va fi redus �n a�a fel �nc�t comentariile �i textele sale s� fie verificate de editori �nainte de a fi aprobate. Dac� un autor cu nivel 120 acord� stelu�e f�r� s� respecte regulile de acordare (disponibile mai jos) nivelul lui va fi redus la 105 sau 110 astfel �nc�t s� nu mai poat� beneficia de aceast� facilitate. Dac� un autor cu 105 abuzeaz� de tag-urile HTML el va fi avertizat �i retrogradat la 100. Exemplele pot continua. cu excep�ia cazurilor evidente �i a dovezilor clare de rea-voin�� din parte celor viza�i pentru retrogradare, editorii se consult� �ntre ei �nainte de astfel de ac�iuni. �ine�i cont de faptul c� nivelul este u�or de ob�inut prima dat� �i mult mai greu de re-ob�inut dup� o degradare.
  • n. Ce este limba matern� (limba declarat� la �nscriere) �i la ce folose�te? Deocamdat� aceast� setare nu afecteaz� activitatea pe site. �n momentul �n care ea va fi activat� �i utilizat� va fi f�cut� posibil� �i modificarea ei.
  • o. Ce se �nt�mpl� dac� �mi expir� sesiunea de lucru �n timp ce scriu un text mai lung sau un comentariu? Materialul va fi �nscris �n site �ns� va fi neaprobat pentru ca editorii s� poat� verifica orice eventual� problem� de securitate (browsere uitate deschise prin internet cafe-uri, etc). Nu retrimite�i textul sau comentariul, el va fi aprobat de un editor cu prima ocazie �i va ap�rea pe site.
  • p. Cum pot afla dac� au ap�rut comentarii noi la un text? La textele care ��i apar�in, prime�ti automat notific�ri pe email. Dac� vrei s� afli despre comentarii noi la textele altora trebuie s� ape�i butonul "anun��-m� pe email despre comentarii noi" disponibil �n fiecare pagin� �nainte de c�su�a de comentarii. Dac� nu prime�ti emailurile verific� dac� nu cumva serviciul t�u de email clasific� eronat emailurile de la �n folderul Spam sau Junk �i scoate-le de acolo pentru ca serviciul de email s� �nve�e aceast� op�iune. Acela�i lucru se aplic� �i pentru newsletter-ul nostru bilunar.
  • q. Cum pot insera imagini �n text? �n primul r�nd trebuie s� fii creditat cu nivel minim 105. Apoi po�i introduce pozele de care ai nevoie �n sec�iunea FOTOGRAFIE a site-ului, la categoria "materiale pentru ilustra�ii" �i folose�ti codul care apare sub poz� pentru a face link �n textul t�u folosind tag-ul IMG din HTML.
  • r. Dac� am retras un text �l mai pot recupera? Cum? Daca vrei sa recuperezi un text pe care l-ai retras �n trecut, o po�i face solicit�nd acest lucru printr-un un email trimis de pe adresa cu care e�ti �nscris �n site, la [email protected]. Periodic o mare parte din textele retrase sunt �terse definitiv, a�a c� e posibil ca unele s� nu mai fie recuperabile.
  • s. Cum pot �terge un text care �mi apar�ine? Accesezi textul respectiv dup� ce te autentifici, folose�ti butonul de editare �i apoi, �n pagina de editare, folose�ti butonul �TERGE. Confirmi opera�iunea �i textul t�u este eliminat.
    Ghid de acordare al stelutelor pentru cei care au nivel minim 120.
  • z. Pot acorda stelu�e (marcajul +). C�nd pot acorda o stelu��? Stelu�ele (+) pot fi acordate de membrii cu nivel de acces mai mare sau egal cu 120 la textele pe care le consider� cu adev�rat deosebite. Av�nd �n vedere c� interesul unei persoane pentru un text este un act foarte subiectiv, o stelu�� trebuie s� fie �nso�it� de un comentariu elaborat despre motivele acord�rii acelei stelu�e.
    Iat� genul de remarci care NU trebuie s� �nso�easc� o stelu��:
    • comentarii exclamative de tipul "oau! deosebit! incredibil! extraordinar! sunt siderat! m-ai lovit unde m� doare! m-ai dat pe spate! m-ai l�sat f�r� cuvinte! etc", dac� a�i r�mas f�r� cuvinte �n fa�a unui text �ncerca�i s� reveni�i pe acel text cu un comentariu elaborat atunci c�nd v-au revenit �i cuvintele
    • propozi�ii de genul "dau o stelu�� ca s� vad� �i al�ii acest text, merit� s� fie citit� de mai mul�i" - dac� dori�i s� atrage�i aten�ia asupra unui text/autor, �i pute�i dedica 2 minute pentru a elabora un comentariu decent, dac� nu o pute�i face atunci nu acorda�i nici stelu��
    • "ur�ri de LaMul�iAni, felicit�ri", etc, dac� v� cunoa�te�i cu acel autor personal atunci �i pute�i trimite un email sau un mesaj printr-un sistem de Messenger
    • o majoritate de propozi�ii format� din citate din text - dac� cineva vrea s� reciteasc� o poate face chiar pe text, nu e nevoie s� cit�m fragmente �ntregi dec�t dac� un comentariu elaborat are neap�rat� nevoie s� puncteze ceva printr-un citat
    • "stelu�a de �ncurajare"dac� sim�i�i nevoia s� acorda�i o stelu�� de �ncurajare asigura�i-v� c� oferi�i c�t mai multe sfaturi �i informa�ii utile pentru �mbun�t��irea calit��ii operei acelui autor, altfel stelu�a de �ncurajare poate r�m�ne doar o recompens� facil� pentru un text mediocru
    • stelu�e repetate pentru texte ale aceluia�i autor - �ncerca�i s� alege�i cu aten�ie textele pe care le remarca�i cu stelu��. dac� un autor merit� stelu�� pe fiecare text este bine ca aceste aprecieri s� vin� de la membri diferi�i ai site-ului. iar un autor care scrie constant bine nu mai are nevoie de �ncuraj�ri �i distinc�ii, el �i are asigura�i vizitatorii prin calitatea textelor.
