Why are there so few threads in the parent Free-For-All thread?
« on: December 18, 2007, 08:08:34 AM »
Hello folks!

As part of our efforts to keep up with the rising posting volume, it has been decided to split the function of the Free-For-All Forum into 3 parts:

1. All the silly, random, fun, diversionary, and non-debate-type topics (including informational threads and whatnot) will go to "Other Topics".
2. All the religion-oriented debate-intended/polemical topics will go to the "Religious Topics".
3. All the non-religion-oriented debate-intended/polemical topics will go to the "Non-Religious Topics"

If you have any questions about this process, please post them here.

A blessed Nativity to all!

Well, one way to find subjects more easily is to use the Search function.

But just as an FYI: the topics are listed in the fora by date last responded to - so your thread will move down the list if no one responds to it.  The key is remembering which forum you posted in - if you post your questions where they're appropriate (Liturgy questions in the Liturgy Forum, Faith questions in the Faith Issues Forum), then the process will be simpler.

And you can always ask one of the moderators or one of the other users to help you search if need be.

At the bottom of any thread, next to the "reply" button, you'll find a button marked "notify." Clicking this will give you e-mail notifications of any new replies to that topic. Doing so too often in my experience can lead to an overloaded mailbox, but if you use it sparingly, and only with threads that aren't such "hot topics," it can be quite useful.

The move is done!  The only threads allowed in the parent Free-For-All are informational threads posted by the Moderator/Administrator team.  All new threads should be placed into any one of the following 3 Fora:

For debate-intended threads:
Religious Topics FFA: http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/board,38.0.html
Non-Religious Topics FFA: http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/board,39.0.html

For unclassified threads, silly threads, informational threads, and misc:
Other Topics: http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/board,12.0.html
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"

I've had to clear out some threads from this forum recently, so I'm bumping this for the benefit of anyone who didn't catch it when Cleveland started it (yes, I know it's a sticky; I want it bumped in the recent threads section).

Another thing you can do is use the very first link at the top of the page, "Show unread posts since last visit."

I'm bumping this again, as we've had more threads posted here.  Please start new threads in the appropriate sub-forum, not here.

Stashko I get the same problems too.

It's easy to get lost and confused in the internet. Isn't it?

But I'm not Stashko?  So who am I then?
