A few tips to this bulletin board

Hello everyone!

I have received an email from someone which states that this board is confusing and hard to use.  I tend to agree, it took me a while to figure it out.

Here are a few tips:

Use the folders hieracrchy at the top of the board to help navigate.

Open the bulletin board in a new window to make it larger.

Be patient, It actually works very well and has some really nice features, once you get comfortable.

Always ask to be notified when there is a response to a topic.  This way you can click right on your email and get to the page you want.

Feel free to complain!  Wink We are working hard to improve things.

Hi Brent! Grin
  Loved the new article from Steve Irons.  It sure tells it all and just about breaks your heart.  Steve gave his life to George and he just stabs him in the back because Steve's Son might cause some problems for George's ministry.
  Have you been able to contact Steve?
Let's see if we can get the telethon numbers up as high as we got them at Rick Ross!
                                          God Bless,  Mark

Hi Brent This is awsome! Again this has been a dream of mine for the past 5 years. Thanks for all the work.
 Let me know if I can help in any way. I have a message for Joe Sperling.  I hope he gets it.  Yes (To me also)
Rand Bates was a real example of the ideals of what a genuine Christian should be. I remember him well.
I use to work in a very large lousy convolecant home in Fullerton. Many of the people there were deserted,
 forgottenby their families.  Rand was the Lord to many of these people. He genuinly care for visited prayed with many
of them. I remember going into a dark ugly room and being so encouraged by seeing a passage of scripture
above a patients bed in beautiful (Rand) caligraphy.  Truthfully when the bible says, "If someone hits you then
turn and offer him the other cheek..." Rand is the only one I can think of who might have done it genuinely.
 I remember Rand would memorize books of the Bible. Yet during the 1980s He began to suffer from migraine headaches.
 It was common to see him during the mtgs with his hand over his nasal passage and his eyes closed in pain. I realy think it was
the stress of being so used.  The guy gave, gave, gave, He couldn't afford a car (he worked at ARIEL) After
being around the assembly for 15 years I began to notice nice people like Rand paid the highest price.

Hello everyone

From viewing some posts, it seems that some of you are interested in the "telethon." Wink

In the main section(reach it by clicking on the geftakysassembly.com folder) at the bottom of the page is a thing called yabbc stats.  Click on more stats, and you will find detailed page views, etc.

Dear Bulletin Board users:

Some of you have inquired what Jr. Member means, etc. and how you progress to "full" member.

Well, it is a "grace" based system. It has to do with how often you post:
 
0 posts=newbie
1-20 posts=junior member
21-100 posts=full member
101-200 posts=senior member
201+ posts=Overcoming member

Obviously, we all want to be good examples and become overcoming members.   Wink This will require committment on your part.  Embarrassed The forum, and all the controls have been provided for you, free of charge.  They can never be taken away, unless you do something really bad, like use profanity or something.  Angry It is a gift that you did nothing to earn, you only need receive it.  However, without appropriating the buttons and text fields that have been given, you remain a mere newbie.  Undecided   Cry

There are many newbie's, and some of these reach junior member status.  However, very few junior members become full members, and so on.

Again, you didn't have to create this bulletin board, but you do need to lay hold of it, and everything it can do for you, in order to overcome.

By the way, the numbers of posts required to progress to the next level of membership can be changed, if we get New Revelation with regard to this part of the Bulletin board.  We'll let you know.  Kiss

Appropriate use of Smilies is a good example, and may earn extra grace towards membership.  This isn't based on your effort to post, because you couldn't post unless we provided the bulletin board free of charge. So just because you are doing the typing, it is really us, at GA.com who are doing the work.  We work, while you rest.

We are not an exclusive board! Anyone may post here.  However, only members of this board can overcome. Don't settle for the "other" side of the registration agreement, like the Reubenites, the Gadites, and the half tribe of Manasseh.  No, we are not exclusive, but you must be a member of this board to overcome.

So, yield to  the board!  Forget your homeword, or family, be diligent to post here, every morning and evening.  Once a month we will also have ANOP's (All Night of Posting) We encourage you to be here for those.

Hi Brent Grin.
  I'm on fire now! Roll Eyes  I'm going to see how many smilies I can get in a post so that I can be asked to join the Assembly.com Workers Wink.  I will not look down from my lofty perch as an Overcomer Memeber on the other non-committed posters as some day they may catch the vision Cool like whats we got.

Hi Brent,
  I can see you were impressed by my pretigious use of smilies!  I'm back at work so it will take a while for me to cook up another article.
  I will be up your way next week.  I will e-mail you.
                                               God Bless, Mark

Hi Greg

I advise that you call Kirk and Lynda to make sure that they are still in SLO when you visit. They may be moving, which will be a big bummer for us, but great for them.

I am sure we know eachother, as soon as we see eachother, the recognition will be there.  for the record, I was in Fellowship for 17 years....not that it is better than 16, I wish it was more like 4.  Oh well.

Hi Everyone,

PRAISE THE LORD!...and all the saints said, PRAISE...oops, wrong site.  Just a little flashback there.  It's amazing how anything that the assembly did or said seems offensive.  This is only because one man misused the Word of God.  

BTW, Has anyone noticed Rick Ross is over 2000 views? Smiley

The Lord bless you,

Eric

Hello bulletin board users!

Thank you for your overwhelming show of support!  We are all pretty stoked about this whole thing.  Of course, it is also quite new. There are lots of buttons and options that we haven't tested yet, so the look and feel of the forum is going to tweak just a little bit here and there.

Look at it as an unexpected surprise.  Cheesy Hopefully, we won't click the wrong button and put the whole thing in chinese, or Hebrew.  At any rate, what you have here is a very powerful bulletin board run by a rank amateur. It is going to take a week or two to learn all the different administrative functions, etc.

Thanks for your support!

Hi Everyone,

<<numerous times, upon successfully signing in, I attempt to access the Member's Registration List or go to a new page and want to post and I am no longer signed in but recognized simply as a guest.>>
 
It looks like some of you AOL people are having problems.  I pick on AOL because they are usually the source of frustration.  There are some host servers whose software will interfere with non-AOL or non-theirhost webpages.  If the web page was not done through their host server , it may never work right.  For the rest of you, check your security settings through Internet Explorer.

Open up Internet Explorer
Click on 'Tools' in the menu bar, then on 'Internet Options'
Click on the Privacy tab
Set it to no higher than medium (Note: you will open up your computer to more cookies, but it's the price to pay - Like I say, one more cookie won't hurt  Wink )

Also, you can click on the Security tab
Under the Security level heading click on 'Custom Level'
Scroll to the bottom to User Authentication (Logon)
Select either 'Anonymous Logon' or 'Automatic Logon only in Intranet Zone' (I recommend the latter)

Provided everything else is set up correctly, you shouldn't incur this problem anymore.  If your server (internet provider) doesn't like this, then return the settings to what they were.

Also, if you have a firewall check to make sure that cookies are not blocked for this website and that automatic logon's are enabled (if it's an option).  Note:  DSL commonly includes a firewall, so you might have to go to your tech support.

Hope this helps!  Smiley

Eric

HelloEveryone!

Try deleting all of your cookies. This helps the log in/out problem until we can get things fixed.

We are working on the problem. Thank you for your patience.

Hi Everyone,

Well, so much for my previous post.  Embarrassed  I installed MSN 8 and now I have the same problem!  I found something that might work.  I log into the bulletin board and minimize the web page.  Then I open up a second incidence of the web page by double-clicking on "Internet Explorer".  Once I go onto the bulletin board, I find myself logged on because of the other web page.  I then can navigate and post replies without getting logged off.  When I'm done, I go into the original page and log out.  If this doesn't help, then it's my computer!  Smiley

Lord Bless,

Eric

Eric,
I have the same problem as you, and I too have MSN.  Shocked I have DSL through my cable company but somehow it is through MSN.  Maybe it is incapatability between MSN and the program on this website.  I thought maybe it was just my computer.  I tried enabling cookies, I tried erasing cookies stored on my computer.  I still can not get my messages and I log out all the time.  If I switch pages I log out regardless of how many times I have logged in.  However, when I go to the bottom of the page to log in again I can see it still shows me as a user on the bulletin board. Huh  I don't know much about this stuff but maybe it has to do with MSN.  As a matter of fact, I can't even post this while logged in so I have to post as a guest. Roll Eyes
