  • Dear Editor,

    I am really pleased to send you my utmost comment and suggestion. My idea is that Nyamile is widely read by the people of South Sudan and it has to maintain that trust. However, two things should really happen. First do try to edit and proof read the articles you are publishing. Honestly some have very serious readability mistakes ranging from simple grammatical errors to serious sentences construction which can be corrected or put correct by your editors. It shows how many of your writers are not conversant with the English Language as well as posses the inability to construct a sentences. Honestly even the so called professors do have those inexcusable language mistakes which out your website to a question on its integrity. Personally I feel very irritated to read some of the articles as a result sometimes I do try to peruse through the headlines and not even open any article to read in detail. Soon I may be forced not to open Nyamile for that reason. I Hope you take this serious.

    Thanks

    • A’bure,

      This is a very genuine concern, thanks a lot.

      First, as you know Nyamilepedia is a very recent website, and for this, we very much appreciate the trust and confidence that we have built in our readership in such a short time. For the last one year, we have been working really hard to expand, secure, boost reliability and many more that we envisioned. Despite our limited resources, we managed to achieve some of these goals and we believe that the remaining goals will be achieved within the next one year or two. All we are asking for from our readers, communities and well-wishers is support; morally, financially, ideologically, materially and any other form of support you may imagine. Nevertheless, we are asking for your patience. It is our wish and hopes to have the best content, but given that only less than 23% of our people (South Sudanese) have fair command of English (literates), whom can we really blame? We are editing day and night, and as you have noticed we are not editing only for junior intellectuals but also for some PhD holders, but still the volume of articles we are receiving is overwhelming. Again, some of our contributors panic or demand answers if their articles are not published within the shortest time they effect, which can be as short as two hours. We hope with time and patience, we will put all these together. We have streamed the volume of articles we receive each day by raising the minimum word count requirement from 300 to 500 words for opinion articles, and further demand more evidence on news reports. All these are done to improve readability and reliability but we are still receiving more articles than we can edit each day. The next step, we will ask our readers, communities and well-wishers to raise funds for us to employ full time staffs who can do the work on full-time scale, otherwise, we will be forced to stream the volume of opinion articles even further at the expense of our readers.

      We hope this answers your concerns.

      Thanks for stopping-by.

  • Dear the editorial team, how come that i comment and you post a different comment using my name and email? to probe it you can see the article about the SPLA COGS. Gen. Paul Malong

    • Lakueijik(Malith Dut),

      We didn’t look into this concern until you raised the issue. We did not do it but we can investigate it. Our investigator found that this person is using your exact details(names and emails) but we can tell from your IP(141.***.**.71 – protected for your privacy) and his IP (108.***.***.004 – also protected) addresses that you are different people. While you are located at EC4N, London, United Kingdom, the impersonator is located at 539 Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.

      If you both want this discussed privately with us, please contact us through emails(nyamilepedia@gmail.com).

      Thanks.
