  1. I disagree with the use of psychoactive drugs to treat non debilitating conditions.

    • limited or inappropriate social interactions
    • "robotic" or repetitive speech
    • challenges with nonverbal communication (gestures, facial expression, etc.) coupled with average to above average verbal skills
    • tendency to discuss self rather than others
    • inability to understand social/emotional issues or nonliteral phrases
    • lack of eye contact or reciprocal conversation
    • obsession with specific, often unusual, topics
    • one-sided conversations
    • awkward movements and/or mannerisms [...]

    None of these seem like they could prevent someone from being self sufficient. Some of these traits seem to be advantages.

  2. One problem with most Objectivist websites is that the comment sections are moderated and commentators easily get banned.

    Dr. Diana's website hardly gets any comments, for example.

    Ive noticed that this does seem to be whats killed a lot of objectivsm sites so on Objectiscan once more interactive features are added users will only be banned if they do something that could damage the site and will only be restricted of they do something highly and intentionly disruptive.

  3. I added an "Objectivism Feed" Which combines the latest news from various objectivism sites showing the date, a description, the name of the site, and a link to the news. It also has an rss feed that you can subscribe to. I mentioned this earlier but, i was some what unclear about it.

  4. The deadline is 7/29. One month from now.

    Lemme think. I should invest some days or weeks of my time to upload content to webspace owned by a stranger, to win a contest?

    If you got in then you would have search engine optimization bonuses that come with being on an objectivism site that hosts other objectivism sites. You could use your own host but sites coming from general free webhosts have poor features and/ or may be looked at as spam by search engines, and even if you use a payed one you still would not get the seo advantages.

  5. Im not sure if this is the correct place to put this but here it is.

    Objectivism Website Contest

    To promote the growth of objectivism on the internet and the knowledge of website creation i am launching the objectivism website contest. Your goal is to create the best Objectivism related website possible. Accepted entries will be hosted on a subdomain of the creators choice on objectiscan.com and creators will be given an an ftp account to access their subdomain.

    Here are some materials for you to start with:

    1. A high quality free webpage creation tool
    2. The w3c website an organization that creates web standards and provides reference information and tutorials.
    3. HTML and CSS, javascript, and php video tutorials.

    The requrements for entry are:

    1. The website must be related to objectivism.
    2. The website must have unique content or provide a unique service.
    3. The website must not contain illegal or malicious content.
    4. The website must be decent quality; consistent theme, good amount of content or good service, use of css, not spammy.
    5. Website must not be extremely demanding on the server (you shouldn't have to worry about this.)
    6. The website must be less than 10 gigabytes (will not apply to exceptional websites.)

    Right now we only have 80 gigabytes of storage to give away, but this may change.

    Leave the files of your entries, questions, or comments below.

  6. After seeing many Objectivism websites shut down and others were shutdown appears likely i have decided to make an offline backup of all the Objectivism sites i know. At the moment i have automated web crawlers that are currently making these backups. If a site goes down the backup will be uploaded to objectiscan.com/archive. Unfortunately there is a chance that interactive sites like forums will lose their interactivity do to their use of server side databases.
