In the response to recent questions and with the impending release of a media interview we have reproduced  Greg C. Gibson’s blog which we hope will answer why and what led to NewTribeZ.net’s creation.

Today we face increasing worldwide challenges; Climate change, Environmental degradation,    economic calamities and ongoing military conflicts all of which have left us a little disillusioned, with less to contribute but with a greater need to see real change.

In thinking on such challenges the “Stone Soup” story came to mind.

A simple struggling family came to a village carrying nothing more than an empty cooking pot. Arriving in a village they requested assistance from the villagers but they were unwilling to share their store of food with the family.  The family went to the nearby stream and filled the pot with water, placed a large stone in the pot and placed it over a fire. A villager became intrigued and asked what they were doing. Making Stone soup which tastes great but it does need a little garnish to make it fantastic replied the family. The villager who has a few too many carrots did not mind offering a couple to help them out, so they were added to the soup. Another villager seeing the pot also inquired and again the family mentioned that the stone soup while good could be improved with garnishing to which the villager offered a few potatoes he had but did not need. These too were added to the pot. As more and more villagers walk by and enquired they too offered that which they could spare and each offering was added to the stone soup. Finally a delicious and nourishing soup was created and the family having cooked too much offered it to all the villages to enjoy.

The message is simple; without coercion and through simple compassion a solution for all was found by each contributing as and what they could.

It is with the “Stone Soup“ philosophy in mind that NewTribeZ.net was formed; the gathering of individuals irrespective of age, race, religion, wealth or political bias contributing as and what they can when they can to in order to form one great new tribe for personal and mutual benefit as we move toward the ultimate goal of world peace.

Imagine what we can achieve if we just tried, join NewTribeZ, its free and it asks nothing more than for you to enjoy a great community and to consider the opportunities that may empower you to make a difference in your personal, business and community life.

NewTribeZ.net

“I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something to make a difference.”

NewTribeZ was founded on an egalitarian non-discriminatory philosophy and with the ambition to empower its members to achieve more in both the personal and business lives by expanding the opportunities for business and social interaction. In the process NewTribeZ aims to benefit worthy caused via publicity, direct action and even, if the opportunity presented itself, to assist financially.

NewTribeZ is young, our initial twelve months has been preoccupied with the creation of infrastructure and while there are many enhancements still under construction we have maintained and expanded associations with teams seeking to address social ills.

So what are you waiting for… phone, email, tweet or blog and get the message out… we may be just one but in this simple way we can all make a difference by aiding a great cause.

NewTribeZ – An Overview

Posted on May 04, 2011

NewTribeZ was established to provide an enhanced personal, social and business platform through which individual needs and desires could be achieved within a “free, minimally restrictive, tolerant and positive environment”. NewTribeZ places a great deal of emphasis on tolerance and acceptance.

“We encourage individuality, applaud uniqueness and revel in differences. We are all unique and we at NewTribeZ welcome such differences and seek not to judge by race, religion, wealth or on political bias. “

Further to this NewTribeZ aspires to bring about social and environmental awareness by promoting open and constructive discussion on all manner of subject. It is hoped that via such open approach that members will utilise the infrastructure provided to bring about positive contributions to their on and off line communities. Hence the reason for our motto NewTribeZ – “Your community with Heart”

“Our philosophy here is to encourage and to facilitate open healthy discussions on all manner of subjects.”

At NewTribeZ we recognise that variety is the spice of life and there for facilities interaction with other sites.  We place no restrictions on members’ activities other than those necessary to enhance members’ security, privacy and to maintain the site’s general exhibition rating.

“As long as you are civil and respectful to others and maintain modesty, we welcome you and your input.”

NewTribeZ values highly its citizens’ privacy and security as is illustrated by the invitation / application procedures when joining and gaining access to the site. In appreciation for members’ efforts to maintain and promote site security via peer to peer monitoring NewTribeZ agrees never to sell and to install and implement industry leading applications to preserve the integrity of all site data. Conscious of the need for transparent administration NewTribeZ has installed administrative applications to aid in the correction of non community compliant activities.

NewTribeZ Basic membership is free! NewTribeZ‘s rewards our community members (citizens) by awarding them with activity points for various actions taken on or on behalf of the community. Such points will be able to be exchanged for virtual (eg. eCards and virtual gifts) and real goods (eg. NewTribeZ merchandise and information technology products).

Premium memberships are awarded to members who have accumulated a minimum level of points with points being deducted monthly for use of Premium membership access. Points can also be purchased as to elevate a member to Premium member status. Premium members have access to an enhanced number of applications in particular access to sales and promotion activities within the site.

NewTribeZ is an independent web community founded, owned, operated and funded solely by Susan and Greg Gibson.  There are no other investors or financiers involved with the community. NewTribeZ is not affiliated with any other social network but does offer extensive cross posting and data sharing functionality with approved and trusted social networks.

NewTribeZ has been developed from a standard script, to which an array of custom modules have been added to provide a full featured web community.  Such modules include an array of security, spam and virus protection applications. In addition a diverse range of business and social applications have been added to empower the community’s citizens to attain their individual and community goals.

Greg’s professional and industrial qualifications and experience over the last 30 years seen him develop, implement and lecture on many facets within the Information Technology industry.  His design and implementation of Atlantis Trade in 1998 saw him pioneer many techniques now commonly associated with social networks. When combined with Susan’s technical training, industry experience and membership awareness on the implementation and operation of social networks over the last 10 years combines to provide a unique blend of the old with the new. As such along with the tried and proven applications which we have come to expect from a social network NewTribeZ incorporates many new and innovative developments to form the basis for a global web community.

In accordance with their community aspirations Greg and Susan engage in collaborative works with other developers and utilise community minded citizens to draw together the best most feature rich applications. As proven developers in their own right Greg and Susan develop, customise and install applications for other like minded developers.  They seek to maintain NewTribeZ’s development efforts on the leading edge, seeking not to mimic others but to continue their innovative ways and to set new development and functional standards.

Aware that no one has all the answers NewTribeZ encourages community member participation and involvement in all aspects of administration, development and direction. If you have a suggestion or comments then please PM Susan or Greg as they would be pleased to hear your opinion.

NewTribeZ is your community so have your say in creating your community to meet your needs.

Imagine there’s no countries

Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You may say that I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as one
