About Vcrisis and its editor
Vcrisis is, in short, the personal endeavour of someone whose discontentment towards the politicians of his country (Venezuela) reached such unbearable levels, that he decided to take action and provide a counterbalance to the official multimillion dollar propagandistic effort rolled out by the current administration. This effort, however, could not have been successful without the collaboration of outstanding individuals who have provided much needed support and opinions in the form of articles throughout the years. Special recognition goes to the webmaster of the site and utmost admiration to Daniel Duquenal and Miguel Octavio, whose blogging from the thick of things has become, at least from my own perspective, that very elusive and ever so difficult to find source of objective information.
The editorial line of this site is based upon the criteria of its editor and founder, Alek Boyd, and the financial maintenance of it has also been met entirely by him since day one.
Feedback messages, information leads, tips and hate mail can be send via the contact section. Alternatively Aleksander can be reached at editor at vcrisis dot com.
How to retrieve old articles?
Some readers do comment "a few days ago there was an article of interest in the homepage that has been removed. How can I gain access to it?" Please visit the editorial section and browse for the title of the article desired. As a general rule that page contains articles published up to 45 days prior to the date in which the search may occur. Alternatively the archive section contains one of the most complete resources of information in English about Venezuela available on the internet, commencing November 2002. The archive also has articles, analysis and opinion pieces in Spanish, French, Italian and German.
How to search for specific articles, authors, subjects, keywords?
There is a search facility on the right hand navigation bar of the site. With it readers will be able to search the entire archive of information published to date. Use it as any search engine.
How to access articles in other languages?
Near the top left hand navigation bar, under the heading "news in other languages" readers will find four little flags with the corresponding subheading. Click on the language selected or on the flag. As these sections are not updated as regularly as the English, readers may wish to click on the link (>>) next to "older (language of preference) editorials".
How to access statistics and data about Venezuela?
We are in the process of compiling a section of statistics and data based solely upon figures provided either by Venezuelan official sources or internationally recognized ones. As this is an evolving project readers are adviced to visit every so often to check any updates.
The analysis section. What does it provide?
Papers providing in depth analysis of Venezuelan issues from various authors can be found in this section.
What is the videos section?
Documentaries and videos critical of the Hugo Chavez's administration are featured in this section.
Relevant information, links to what the editor considers sites worth visiting, more often than not independent bloggers, and papers or investigations of interest produced by other parties have been linked in navigation bars at both sides of Vcrisis. A browse around these shall provide a very accurate picture of present day Venezuela to unlearned readers.
