Please use the Correct Forum!
« on: April 18, 2003, 08:13:23 PM »
There have been several new topics that aren't in the correct forum lately.  I am very glad to see everyone taking an active interest and creating new topics and I am also happy to move the topic to the correct forum, but in the future I would please ask all members to take a moment and make sure they're putting their topics in the correct forum.

The most ambigious forums we have are The Other Board and Free For All.  If you start a topic that is not expressly about religion, please put that topic in Other.  The one exception is threads where the poster is talking about a controversial non-religious subject such as politics in which case Free For All would be the proper forum.  

I hope no one takes this personally as I've noticed several different users doing this lately.  It's not a huge deal, but as the site grows it can negatively impact a few things such as new users wanting to read old threads in a certain category or when a user wants to search for a thread; if someone started a thread on becoming Orthodox in the Other board, it might never be found in a search since most people looking for that topic would search the Covert Issues board.  It's not a big deal right now, but it's better to do a bit of work upfront than have to go back and move multiple topics later.  

Thanks for your time and patience.  Please forgive me if I have offended you in any way and remember me in your prayers.

David<<Covert Issues board>>

Hey, why don't I have access to the COVERT Issues board, David?   ;)  Isn't being a Pope and Patriarch senior enough???   ::)   I don't even have a thread with this heading.   :P

Well, Hypo, I think I know what gremlins we can blame for your troubles.
