The New Look

If you got up a bit earlier than usual today, no it's not you. The Board has gotten a bit of a facelift.

I have been noticing two things lately: it was very hard to find the forums, and the board was exceedingly cluttered, causing duplicate postings and (sometimes) double the heat.

So being a twice cursed lawyer and clerk of Session, I went about tiding up a bit. I did not delete ANYTHING, just made Categories for the forums we had, and made a few new ones to try and keep the biggie forums (General Discussions, Theology) from being the "catch-alls" they are. I also made it easier to see and post Biblical text questions.

So I'm curious about your reactions - I can take it, I'm a big boy and not made of glass. :gpl:

Do you like/dislike the new look?
Would you like to see even more organization and forums (like the subforums in the Covenant Theology section) ? For example, Theology could be divided up even more.

Ok, it's feedback time.

:thumbup: or :thumbdown:

or maybe just :banghead:

Organizationally I think it looks promising. It should help people who are looking for something topically, which can just get you a host of unrelated articles that you have to sift through to find something you want. I hope the biblical text forums get used more regularly this way. I think lurkers will like it ... Now just wait and see ...

Fred,
Good job. I like the way its organized.

I noticed the Lady's Tea Room forum isn't displayed. Is that because its just not visible to me because I've never signed onto that password protected forum before?

Bob,

I'm not sure. It should be visible in the Members Only Forums. That's odd.

Yeah, right now there are three visible from my computer:

- Pray Ye Like This; Prayer Forum
- Puritan Board Family Photo Forum
- Dads' tool shed (Men ONLY!)

Also, Fred. I looked in the "Music" section and there are only 3 threads. What of the plethora of the many others? Not pressing...just curious. [/quote:5396be5741]

Joshua,

It is a bit of a tedious process moving threads. Do you have the ability to move threads? Check in the Admin/Mod pull down in the bottom left of a thread. If it says "Move Thread" as an option when you pull down, you can go through the "General Threads" Section and move a bunch of the movie and music threads into the new forums.

Must be because you never logged in or had Admin/Mod status.

Are there any men who can view the Ladies Forum link on the Main Board Page?

I was going to make the "brilliant" suggestion that we do an experiment and have you give me the password to see if it was listed after I entered the password. Unfortunatly, since its not listed, I can't enter the password...duh

I can't see it either.

Should I be able to see the Dad's Tool Shed? I may just be overlooking it, but I can't see it.

For what it's worth as a newbie, I like the organization. I've already found stuff of interest to me that was buried in general categories before. Thanks! :yes:

[color=black:58464165eb]The older forum allowed you to control the number of posts that were displayed, which was handy if just wanted to view all posts for a thread on one page, instead of going from page to page. Does the new forum have that same capability?[/color:58464165eb]
