Good afternoon my PageCarton people. It gives me joy to tell us that this new month of August have ushered us into the new era of the PageCarton Community.

PageCarton Community has become a fully premium community only with financial members as of last month. I appreciate everyone who have opted to continue to support the project.

Our assistant community managers has been in touch to ask about our preferred membership plans. We have listened to everyone who shared  and are moving forward to create the community of our future. 

PageCarton Community will become a social multi platform where all members will find expression on different platforms represented. 

Everyone who have expressed their intention not to continue with the community may leave the group now. I would like to decimate all the energy on the remaining members. Anyone who is undecided have up to seven days to decide on a membership plans they want to subscribe to. Plans are available on https://community.pagecarton.org

Meanwhile, as I have said on a number of occasions, all our past donors may opt to convert their past donations to membership. 

Once again, i thank you so much for your support.

Good day @PageCarton people, my ever-vibrant friends in this great community and my co-innovators. It has been a great time mixed with a lot of diverse acts and feelings. I really had to take out time out of my busy schedule to write this. I hope you will find the time and patience to read. Effective communication is needed if we must work and win together.

Adadevoh

We have been working on the new superman-grade version of PageCarton - "Adadevoh" which was scheduled to be released on August 1st – only a few days away. I am afraid the release date would be postponed. A lot has happened that necessitated this, but the bottom line is, there is a basic quality level our innovation must reach before it is released to the public. A good number of the development team has abandoned the tasks assigned to them - I understand how busy humans can be sometimes, so I am not pained. I am also not disappointed. A team of about nine individuals have given birth to five great individuals who are delivering blazing greatness.

Adadevoh Team

Damilola Olowookere has championed a super attractive new installation interface for PageCarton. If you see the new interface, it just got to be a love-at-first-sight affair. The commitment of Damilola to this project is great not minding that he is a busy person given a number of caps he is currently wearing. I really appreciate the efforts.

Isaac Daramola has pushed a new admin panel page to our GIT repo and I would say that I was amazed at the tenacity Isaac put into these. The work required him to do a lot of learning and I am impressed at the willingness to just cross so many hurdles to deliver in such a short time. The admin panel still require a lot of work but I trust that we can work together to put some finishing touches. We will do everything necessary so we can have a great interface in the backend for our new born awesomeness.

Our Russian friend and ambassador, Oleg Perminov - aukc@mail.ru has amazed me. In fact my interaction with him has shown me a lot of things we are still missing in this geographical space. Oleg has committed to all the efforts to make PageCarton speak Russian. He has been working with me to ensure every inner parts of our innovation are translation-friendly. I would say that without his contribution, it would have been impossible to bring PageCarton to this height of internationalization. I am grateful for everything Oleg has brought to the development.

Mayowa Olabamiji has been a great guy. He was earlier tasked with the responsibility to test PageCarton and recommend changes. And truly, he has been committed to this. He has done very well. He currently has been assigned the tasks, which was earlier given to David, to create follow-come themes in the new version.

Sincerely, our project page on Asana speaks so much about the project and who has been committed to this project and I am confident that our efforts will bring forth yields, engraving our names in the skies among the stars. Also for the record, I want to appreciate the efforts by other team members who started with us but have gotten busy elsewhere.  David Oluwashina, Deborah Daniel, Debo Adeyele, Tolulope Ogundiji are great people – they wouldn’t have been invited to the project if they aren’t; I celebrate everyone who have contributed to this one way or the other and I hope we still work together on some more awesome projects in the future. In this life journey and this project, we still have a long way to go and I am hopeful about greater strides – I am confident about us taking a lead role in the great future ahead of us.

Challenges

Right now, because of the insufficiency in team members, we suffer a major drawback in

  • Content & Publicity
    Our plan is to ensure Adadevoh has the best publicity available for such innovation.
     
  • Documentation
    We want to ensure Adadevoh has all the information that the users might need to make the best use of it available online.
     
  • User Experience
    We wanted a UX expert to oversee the interface designers so we can reduce the bottlenecks in the usage of Adadevoh
     
  • Funding
    We would be needing proper funding majorly to be able to publicize our initiative and concepts. Damilola Olowookere started a crowd-funding campaign for the project about a month ago but we were unable to kick-off anything because of the lack of good publicity initiatives. Other funding strategies are still welcome.

 

We are going to use the time extension to work around the issues and still get the best of the team members on ground now. We are also looking for highly motivated individuals who will join us in making history.

The goal for the new version for PageCarton is in three phases,

  • Improve the User Experience of PageCarton
  • Make PageCarton international-ready by perfecting the inner localization options and make it available in other languages
  • Document all PageCarton tutorials and information

Adadevoh must go through a process that will prove that all these have been achieved. This is why we are postponing the release date to Wednesday, 20th November 2019. This will coincide with the upcoming PageCarton Conference 2019, which is scheduled to hold in Lagos, Nigeria. I believe we can capitalize on the publicity for the conference and also include this as one of the agenda for the conference. Meanwhile, anyone interested in being a member of the organizing committee of the conference should contact me.

 

PageCarton Community

We have embarked on a journey to redesign how the PageCarton Community works. I have taken time to explain the new concept and why I think we should move to the next level where the community may run independently. I also look forward to a Community, that can support it’s own project and programs through subscriptions which will bring along a sense of responsibility for members.

Next Level

I don’t have the intention of booting people off the community but sincerely; I think we do have a lot of people in the group who necessarily doesn’t share in the vision. But then, the community currently is filled with great people who have been of help to this project. Over the years, we have met and engaged a number of people who have brought the PageCarton to where it is today. Now we need to move to the next level – our next level is where PageCarton Community can stand alone and not depend solely on funding by it’s founder or friends of the founder.

A lot of people have left the group currently because they don’t feel they need to pay in the group, or that they just don’t feel like they should be in the group in the first place. These are expected. We have a community of about 250 people; my goal is to have a hundred individuals who will move with us to the next level. A hundred committed members are better than a million who don’t share our vision.

Subscriptions

The subscription options are on https://community.pagecarton.org and anyone who really is interested to join is encouraged to go and select their membership plan, which ranges from 1, 200 naira to 12, 000 naira yearly.  Also, anyone who have donated to PageCarton before may opt to have their donation converted to a credits which can be used in the yearly subscription. I don’t want to see our previous supporters leaving the group for no reason.

I employ everyone to help make this a reality. We would begin to enforce the community membership plans by mid August.

Appreciation

On this journey, I have made a lot of friends and families. This is mostly my gain and I am grateful for it. I want to thank everyone who has helped one way or the other on this project. Also, for taking time to read my long epistle, I appreciate.

  • The meeting started around 5:10pm with greetings from Mr Ayoola.
  • Mr Ayoola spoke extensively about the urgent need for us to change strategies in the running of the PageCarton Brand. In his words, he said we need to place more value on the PageCarton brand. He also mentioned the fact that we need to create and maintain the business side of  PageCarton in order to sustain the PageCarton brand itself. He also stated that we cant possibly sustain PageCarton activities and programs with free programs. We need to place value on those programs in order to sustain our activities.
  • Mr Ayoola also discussed his ideas on how PageCarton can be more viable and how PageCarton can work better. He suggested PageCarton should have some paid employees which would be saddled with field activities (PageCarton Events) of PageCarton. He mentioned that, whatever money generated from PageCarton Events will be used in the payment of such paid employees of PageCarton.
  • Mr Mayowa explained how much efforts he is putting into making sure PageCarton gets more users and also more members for the community. He talked about his plans on engaging students of The Polytechnic Ibadan and other tertiary institution in Oyo State.
  • Mr Adebowale raised the need for the PageCarton Program calendar to be updated and possibly trimmed down to major monthly and annual events. He also raised the need for us as Managers to kick-start plans for the 2019 PAGECARTON CONFERENCE as soon as possible. He said a planning committee and sub-committees needs to be set up for the PageCarton Conference as soon as possible in order to improve on what we achieved during the maiden edition of the PageCarton Conference.
  • Mr Adebowale then suggested we have to prioritize the PageCarton Programs.
  • All members present then agreed that we must put in more work and efforts to the monthly PageCarton BootCamps and the secondary school programs in order to get more participants for the PageCarton Conference. 
  • Mr Ayoola announced to the meeting that he has already made contact with Government College Ibadan to take the first secondary school training there. The PageCarton Secondary school programs will therefore have its pilot program at the Government College Ibadan which the date will be announced as soon as possible. 
  • Mr Mayowa gave us the detailed report of the last FUTA Outreach and the meeting reviewed the report adequately. In the review of the report, it was stated that Mr Mayowa still need to be reimbursed with the sum of 18,000 naira being part of the expenses he incurred during the FUTA Outreach. Fortunately, Mr Ayoola weighed in to make a promise to pay a substantial part of the money, while he appealed to all other managers to also make their own contributions (no matter how little) so as to offset the debt as quickly as possible.
  • Every member present at the meeting agreed that we make the PageCarton Managers meeting a monthly meeting so as to make every manager work more smarter and faster and also to put a face to every word we express on our Whatsapp group.
  • The meeting was adjourned till 9th June, 2019.
  • The Meeting ended at exactly 7pm and thereafter, we proceeded to have some refreshments.
