I think it should list all the jurisdictions you've been in-- with durations in each . . . . Grin

length of time? yikes that could be very revealing for some of us.  Some of us are rather old so telling how long one has been a part of a given jursidiction would also give away their age!  Vicki comes to mind . . . Grin

Sounds good, but I think Orthodox Catechuman (without a jurisdictional modifier) should also be an option.  And if a person is deceiving the board, the admins/mods should have the prerogative to change the listing to the correct one.  This of course wouldn't apply to those who choose to remain anonymous in the affiliation, only those who commit falsehood ie - Keble listing himself as Pentecostal.  :p

Keble, shame on you!   Grin



[1] Now the serpent was more subtle than any other wild creature that the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, "Did God say, You shall not eat of any tree of the garden'?"
[2] And the woman said to the serpent, "We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden;
[3] but God said, You shall not eat of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, neither shall you touch it, lest you die.'"
[4] But the serpent said to the woman, "You will not die.
[5] For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil."
[6] So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate; and she also gave some to her husband, and he ate.
[7] Then the eyes of both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves aprons.

If one chooses to disclose his/her/its affiliation seems to be a good option, as long as nobody uses it for harassment or conversion.

Of course there are renegades here and they should be sought out and muted by the Imperial SOP'S.

Well, from advice given by an OC.net member, I think we will make it very unspecific.

For instance, instead of specifying which jurisdiction one is, we'd just have Eastern Orthodox.  This will cut down on the jurisdiction squabbles which seem to be so famous among Internet Orthodox Smiley

So basically the list would include:
Eastern Orthodox
Oriental Orthodox
Roman Catholic
Eastern Catholic
Protestant
Other
N/A

I think this would be a much cleaner way of implementing the system, and achieving the general goal by basically allowing everyone to get the gist, without getting too specific, into everyone's "canonical" situation.

In response to David...

I removed the Chat link at the top that indicated how many members were in the room mainly because the chat server is hosted on another site, and the script would query that server, adding a few seconds to every page load. It was annoying at times, and by eliminating it, I cut down on page load times significantly.

Bobby,

You're right, that does sound like a better(and simpler) system.  

About the chat server, would it be possible to add a link that says "click here to see who is in the chat room" instead?

YOu can cover all schools of protestant thought in three main catagories:

Anglican

Lutheran

Calvinist.

But if nothing else, you could say Liturgical or Sacramental protestant and damn dumb fundies Grin

Protestant subcategories
1. Anglican
2. Lutheran
3. Calvinist
4. Arminian
5. Protestant Other

So, for instance, Lutheraninquirer would be
Protestant>Lutheran

How dat?

Interesting that someone else shares my views about dentist's fees.

 I , admittedly a while back ,made some crack to my dentist about his new boat - along the lines of well that's about three quarters of your boat now paid for and got the response of " you are kidding  ! I can now afford to have a mast - the rest of the boat has still to be bought !"

It should of course be obvious that what I actually said was not quite that as my mouth was full of his gadgets at the time Sad
