    Howdy everyone!

    I want to take a quick moment to thank everyone for joining us here. Please be sure to check out the Rules of Engagement before posting, obey the rules and we won't have any issues.

    We consider this place a safe space for those who are recovering from fundamentalism. We don't care if you are still a christian or not - just so long as you're respectful to other posters who consider this place their second home.

    I personally want to thank Captain Cassidy for allowing me on board this project. I'm helping run the site and the forum, if you have any questions, please post in the forum or send me or any of the mods a PM.

    Thanks everyone!

    Bobby

    Question: Is this forum going to be the new location for the RtD articles, or will those stay over at Patheos and this is just a place for discussing 'n' stuff?

    In other news:
    WTH?? Am I the only one who thinks that sounds like, "We'll let the Democrats play, with the understanding that they'll always lose, and they should be happy that we're letting them in the game at all!"???

    I believe the current plan is to keep the blog posts there and this be the place where we basically keep all the main ongoing discussions. I would like to eventually get a system in place that dual-posts the blogs from patheos to here automagically, so we can benefit from the SEO of Cass's long-ass articles.

    Honestly, it would be great that this be the one place for everything, we just have to make sure her blogging income stays the same. Patheos has been good to her.

    That'd be super nice. I like Patheos and they've really been wonderful to me. Thanks for thinking about it, gang :) I really appreciate how y'all look out for me. I can't tell you how humbled I am by the concern and how thankful I am for it.

    Hello guys,

    Found my way here too :)

    Okay, I don't want to sound ungrateful or anything, but most of the page is blank space! Only about 10 comments at a time can be seen, and these are all 1-2 line comments! This is a hugely ineffective and off-putting use of space. If what's making it so unfriendly is all the blahblah under each person's ID, GET RID OF IT! That stuff is of *NO INTEREST WHATSOEVER*. I want to see the comments, not a bunch of who cares. For example, Melody's comment that I can see right above where I'm writing consists of "Hello guys, Found my way here too" with a smiley. AND IT'S TAKING UP 2/3 OF MY SCREEN!

    Oh I see what you're saying.

    I can shut that off if it's annoying, but we'll need to ask Cassidy. She wanted it, so I'll pass that buck on to her!

    LOL we can shorten it mega lots or remove it. I just thought it'd be a fun way to get to know folks on the fly.

    And the funny thing is, it wasn't that far off. If you ever need a project manager, @dangitbobby is your guy. He is obviously very used to herding cats.

    Used to it herding cats, yes. Good at it? Well, that's a different story lol

    Shouldn't the Captain's title not be "Staff Member", but "Captain"? And Mr. Captain "First Mate"?

    I have a question about the copyright rules: is it OK to post youtube videos? Also because not all music on there is technically allowed to be on there and sometimes gets taken down.
    I just posted a few and would like to continue that, but it's not worth getting in trouble over either.

    Eh, per the DMCA we'd be channeling content. I've always understood the standard-issue don't upload/don't talk about uploading warnings to be about direct attachments to posts and threads or talking about torrents.

    Yes, posting YouTube videos are fine. In general, if YouTube allows it, it's probably okay.

    Tim basically said it - WE aren't hosting it, they are. In short, we don't want to run afoul of the law. If YouTube determines it to be infringement, it'll be taken down over there and that will reflect it's posting here.

    However, with that said, there can be some pretty X-rated stuff that passes through the filters, so unless/until we get an "Strictly Adult" part of the forum, no porn please. :D

    Also, per the request, I've removed the profile questions from showing up on the sidebar. Perhaps we'll find a better solution for that. The questions and answers still show up in the profile, however.

    I'm a member of nearly every privilege group and even I am nervous. I'm old enough to remember the race riots of the sixties, and Vietnam War protests. I see it coming.
