Overview

In order to qualify as a member of Net Sözlük, a readership account has to be created, which is followed by adding 10 trial entries concerning the editing regulations of Net Sözlük. Afterwards, those trial entries will be checked by the web site administrators, who decide that the candidate is adequate to be a member of Net Sözlük or not. New account registration is active in all times. As of January 2008, it is possible for one to register as a 6th generation member. Many of its active members have left Net Sözlük following the “stroke” in November 2007, however the web site gathered back its strength quickly. Net Sözlük currently consists of glorified members contributing to literature. The members of the platform periodically organize meetings, called “assembly”. Net Sözlük, with continuously renewed web codes, is in active development and therefore it offers advanced options to its members. Renovated and improved apparatuses, including a chat platform, are to be used likely.
