Naijapals – of Nigerians and Friends

Tell me I’ve been missing something. I just joined up at www.naijapals.com, and then I checked out some profiles and could see ‘2007’?

My first question: why does the typical Nigerian forum or online community, website etc., always go for the green-white-green backdrop?

I have no problem with the green-white-green, but as much as being proud of who we are and where we come from is concerned etc., I’m thinking: if for any reason Nigeria changes its National Flag tomorrow, will all these websites change their backdrops too?

My thoughts might just be going too far, but here, I reel out some green-white-greens:

There are too many to number but you can continue with the list.

Back to naijapals.com. As much as being unique is concerned, first, naijapals.com screams friendster.com to me.

NaijaPals features include:

When you join, you can upload your picture and create a profile. You could enter your email address and password(yahoo, hotmail, gmail) and a search could be done for your friends who are already members. I was cautious about this though, the word ‘advertisement’ crossed my mind.

– emails: you can send a friend an email just by composing a message and typing in your friends name.

– the ‘blackboard’ section is for posting adverts, etc

– members can write articles and a weblog would be created.

– I think the most interesting area is the Fight Park. You could start a topic, pic an opponent and watch he/she and others as they respond.

– theres a video section where you could watch videos online. I didnt see any option to upload videos, but maybe there is. Videos are mostly from youtube.com. Theres also a music section for playing uploaded music files.

– the Forum comes last.

other features include the opportunity to create/join groups, upload pictures and have a personal gallery, a private/public profie etc. Too much talk, I think you could just check it out yourself.

One of these days, I will do a comprehensive review of Nigerian online communities.

  1. Well the Isue of green-white-green gives a Nigerian Wemasters a total sense of nationality.i have edited the style of new Nigerian Students Forum http://www.naijacampusforum.com the same colour.I did this and was very happy at the result.many people have personal e-mailed and cogratulaed me for the out look.So I think it is better to have the colour for Nigerian Website.
    Naijapals Is the No 1 Social networking Website In Nigeria.

  2. @naijacampusforum

    nice to note, on the sense of nationality and the green white green. If all Nigerians(especially our leaders) are as patriotic, maybe things would have been better.

    I was of the opinion that too many green white green websites won’t give visitors a unique feel, as they might think/conclude that a site they are presently viewing is the same as another one they visited before. Anyway, keep up the good work.

    Thanks also for the info about naijacampusforum.com. You can be sure i’ll check it out.

  3. Thank you man,confusing the visitors ia another issue but any body that calls himself webmater must know that there must be a sense uniquness in their websites.leaving the website colour simply hides the proffesionialism of the webmaster.After edinting my website can you imagin that I ask about the best website in Nigerian and some of the members are picking my forum,Here is the link if you dont mind http://naijacampusforum.com/index.php/topic,202.msg465

  12. @ korite,

    Am very sure u’re a spammer and a scam artist thats why you are running from Naija pals,
    I even wonder if your profile exist, cos u seem to be just anoda Naija man trying to de-market the No. 1 Social Network site in Naija
    Playahater..

  13. Hi,
    I’m hopin to not come across as silly and ignorant but I’m going to ask this question hopin that someone will take me seriously and help a girl out. I’m tired of naija pals and have been tryin (seriously tryin) to delete my account for months with no success. I even sent an email to the admin and not to my surprise no reply!!! I’m so upset that the website can not clearly and simply show its users how to close down thier account like other social networking sites do! I’m sure its not legal for a site to not state clearly how a user can cancel thier account! Anyway can someone please let me know if they have an idea of how i can do this? Much appreciated.

  14. I am in the exact same position: I do not have a clue how to cancel my account and I’ve been trying for months! I looked everywhere, checked out their terms and conditions and the only useful piece of information I came across was “You may terminate your membership at any time, for any reason by following the instructions on the Resign pages in Account Settings”. If anyone knows where to find the Resign Pages, could you please let me know?
    Thanks in advance,
    Sabina

  15. please i want to delete my account.There isn,t any instruction how to.please help me

  16. how do i delete my account?the site is sooooooooo boring

  17. i want to know about this sites more

  18. please can somebody nice who knows how rite down the steps on how to delete the Naijapals account…………………please it feels like these people are choking up on me and i really want to let go thank you

  19. The reason is probably because most of the default theme of these forums are in this colour. And most times average Nigerians own this sites so they don’t bother about the technical aspect of it.

    I just created http://NigerianStudentsForum.com and the colour is almost the same. But I intend changing the colour to my favourite one.

  20. What exactly is going on here dat people want 2 terminate their membership in dis forum?and y do u wants d color change is their any secret discover abt d former color?

  21. I think there isn’t need 4 any one of u thinking of deleting his/her acount cos this can be a great avenue 4 a more educative and enlightenment ideas to be shared btw eachother.

    what is the source of mass unemployment in nigeria ?

  23. Talking about website colour choices, the site I work at from time to time (http://www.nigeriamovienetwork.com/) does not portray the green-white-green phenomenon. I believe it is uncalled for in my opinion, and also seems like many Nigerian websites are wearing uniforms (you know…like school uniforms). Its all about content, and design comes next (definitely not the green-white-green design).

  26. Hello Admin, Please i forgot my login details cause i have not been using naijapals since i registered years back, now when i put my name on google it brings my profile, pictures and every of my details on naijapals, please i need you to delete my profile for me. My handle name is “Niceyoung1″ i cant even remember my email and password to access it anymore. Kindly delete for me completely plz, i dont like when my name is showing up on google. thanks

  27. It’s time move forward!

  28. I got this website from my buddy who told me concerning this site and at the moment
    this time I am visiting this site and reading very informative
    articles or reviews at this time.

  29. What’s up mates, how is everything, and what you would like to say about this paragraph, in my view its truly awesome for me.

  30. I think the admin of this website is truly working hard in favor
    of his web page, since here every material is quality based material.

  31. Looks to me like nobody has the solution to resolving the issue on ground “How to close a naijapals profile”. I am one of those who desperately seek independence from the site. Not for a reason harsh but just as simple as I am no longer interested and I’m tired of all the mails that flood my mail box. I hate to see my naija profile on google when I search out my online profile. Untill recently its been years since I last check the site and it looks all same to me although there has been significant changes through the years. The point is ‘those who brought me in are long gone and so I am’. Please, the website administration happen to stumble on this comment i just want them to know this – “Dont pretend you do not have a solution to this problem, I know you do. If facebook has then you should” Do not force people to love your site it only makes people like me detest it the more. It is informative no doubt, I’ll be a fool to deny that but let the decision to learn be at the consent of the subscriber”. God bless you.
    If I’m ill informed as a result of ignorance, I’d be glad to be politely corrected.

  34. It is really a nice and useful piece of information.
    I am glad that you simply shared this helpful info with us.
    Please keep us informed like this. Thank you for sharing.

  35. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about this, like
    you wrote the book in it or something. I think
    that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is magnificent blog.
    A fantastic read. I will definitely be back.

  36. Excellent post. I will be facing a few of these issues as well.
    .

  37. Online stores give year-long savings as it is easier than to run a shop in the market place to run a virtual online shop that to
    some shop which offers you everything under the sun that can be
    purchased. Also these online retailers like Overstock.com provide particular discount such as
    overstock promotion signal for promotional and publicity function.

    Although an authentic Overstock voucher is difficult
    to find but as soon as you obtain it be sure to be dazzled.

    Overstock Coupon is of very good use, as it has increased the novelty of
    online shopping by many times among your brain of
    men and women. It’s also several purchasing things which increase its need. Several kinds of voucher requirements are there namely Money Saver Coupon Code, Free Ship Coupon Code and many more; all are useful for different reasons.
    Now these limitations are being sold-out to do business. This is also comfortable for that consumers since they are now free from the risk of marketing using a large amount of money. Even some recharge websites and internet sites have started the Overstock Coupon process. They feature systems like on a charge of Rs.10 just one will get two decades concession on searching for Rs 999 and above. By using these systems, even the small-scale web sites are increasing their sales. Several shopping sites have set an edge such that shopping beyond that certain amount could endure no delivery cost. Coupon codes are now available to even reduce the transport cost.
