Annual Funding Drive 2018

Hi Everyone! It's that time of the year again. We just finished paying for the costs to host and run our site for the next year. It's fairly minimal, but there are still some costs. We've always had a strict policy against advertising and promotion, trying to stay focused on the mission and purpose ...

Re: Quinn's Research on LDS Church Finances

That figure of $120K doesn't include fees they "earn" as board members on the various for-profit entities the LDS Church runs. They can also earn substantial amounts of money through preferential business deals they transact as private individuals: everything from books deals to real estate opportun...

Recent Forum Problem Resolved: 10/15/2017

Hi Everyone, We had a problem on the server yesterday evening (Oct 15th) that was preventing logins from functioning. It was an automated security lockdown due to a private message that included all "Registered Users" of the board as the one of the recipients. I think that was probably a mistake. I ...

Re: THOU hast it all wrong

I've heard we use the intimate language, thee, thou, etc. in prayers and the like because we want to show that our relationship with god is at an intimate level... except I don't talk to any of my best of friends in that language. I talk normal to them. I let my guard down with them, which sometime...

Re: Looking for input: Mobile Interface (Tapatalk)?

This newer version of the forum software also seems to format itself much better for mobile viewing just through the browser.

Tapatalk seems like it is working now. I received a troubleshooting response from their tech support, and tweaked a couple of things. Post here if you see problems.

Re: Looking for input: Mobile Interface (Tapatalk)?

I installed the Tapatalk extension and went to their site to update the "site owner" information. They are reporting a problem detecting the connection from their end. I can't find a lot of information for troubleshooting this error online, so I submitted a support ticket. I will keep working on it ...

Looking for input: Mobile Interface (Tapatalk)?

Hi Everyone, On our old forum setup, I had a mod installed called "Tapatalk." I am not sure who is or was using it, but I did not replace it yet after this major update to version 3.2. This software reformatted the boards for easier use on iPhone and Android mobile devices. It's a great idea, but I ...
