The job has become more effi­cient and more professional

The com­plete reor­gan­i­sa­tion occurred in 2010 and brought to an end the early days sit­u­a­tion of being a one-man’s project in favour of today’s well-​planned and struc­tured team with split lia­bil­i­ties. Though the project still works absolutely self-​organised, it today runs a com­plex admin­is­tra­tive struc­ture. A very impor­tant change con­cerned the com­mu­ni­ca­tions: The for­mer sole use of Ger­man lan­guage was expanded to three lan­guages: Eng­lish, French and Ger­man. This finally opens the inter­na­tional dimen­sion. Sys­tem­atic rela­tions with impor­tant inter­na­tional insti­tu­tions are being devel­oped continuously.

A newly devel­oped web­site of 2011 serves as a com­mon place of infor­ma­tion and com­mu­ni­ca­tion. The Domain for this web site is: www​.parosphromenus​-project​.org. The Parosphromenus-​Project con­tin­u­ously works on a vol­un­tary and inde­pen­dent basis. Nobody receives any reim­burse­ment for his work on the project. The home­page is financed by dona­tions of the mem­bers, yet with­out any adver­tise­ment. Though we are happy to work closely within our home club and other appro­pri­ate clubs , the project is absolutely inde­pen­dent of them and in par­tic­u­lar of the aquar­ium indus­try. We are self-​organised and liable to account to nobody except our con­vic­tions. We are a vol­un­tary, far reach­ing net­work, not an asso­ci­a­tion. Who ever would like to sup­port the com­mu­nity and take part will be most wel­come. There are no oblig­a­tions, no for­mal mem­ber­ship or fees and if who­ever wants to leave the project, can do so at any time.

Today the project, after it re-​organisation, con­sists of the man­age­ment, the steer­ing group, the advi­sory board , and most of all the mem­bers. More­over, the project runs in co-​operation with dif­fer­ent insti­tu­tions, asso­ci­a­tions, muse­ums and research insti­tutes. Every­body who com­mits to the basics of the project can become mem­ber by infor­mal com­mu­ni­ca­tion and take part, be it ide­al­is­ti­cally, mate­ri­ally or actively in conservation.

The com­mu­ni­ca­tion almost exclu­sively is done over the inter­net and by email. The new home­page liaises the project and its mem­bers as the plat­form for infor­ma­tion and exchange. The web­site at the same time is the win­dow to the pub­lic and a thor­ough instru­ment to address poten­tially inter­ested peo­ple around the globe.

The up to now suc­cess­ful instru­ments — cen­sus, newslet­ter and forum — are con­tin­ued on yet a much more attrac­tive back­ground. The forum with its free choice of lan­guage encour­ages par­tic­i­pa­tion inde­pen­dently from for­eign lan­guage skills. How­ever it is pre­ferred that the lan­guage of choice in the first instant should be English.

Update feb­ruar 2019 (HS)

In 2018 the Parosphromenus Project decided to also use the face­book plat­form, and now has a page as well as a group on facebook.
