Sometime in the next few days this forum will close to new postings.

Existing content will remain for now.

Thank you all for your contributions.

A well made one too. he (Joe), gives it all he's got, and just can't seem to hurt it from doing the Job it was intended for. (Thanks, Jube!)

I'll be very sorry to see this site close.
Tadua has got several sites and it would be nice to see links to other sites too.

https://understandtheword.com/
https://governingbody.net/
https://awakenjw.com/

Why is it closing Apollos? Is there no other way around this? This site has always been a nice place for free speach but I do understand the need for things to stay on track and make sense.

Apollos,

Thank you for this website, every day its the first one I visit for more than 6 years now.

We all have a lot to learn still, but the website was a consolation, when I panicked as I woke up in the first place. So thank you once again.

God bless to all, I came to love you, keep your faith in our Heavenly Father and his Son and our Lord Jesus.
Warmest greetings
Maria 🌷

Hi Apollos,

I for one am extremely disappointed to hear this news.

Can you elaborate on what you mean please. Will it be made read only? OR no new members? What is the no new?

Regards, Amos.

Hi Amos (and others who were looking for clarification).

It will be closed to any new postings, but for now at least I do not intend to remove the site, so existing content should still be available.

I'm not making any decisions beyond that, so it's possible it might open up for community discussion again in the future. But that would only happen if there was the possibility of a commited moderation team (even a small one) who would uphold the intended values of the site and ensure that posted content met a continuous standard worthy of those who would be disciples of Jesus Christ.

That is a fairly weighty responsibility. It demands a decent amount of time and attention, and at present we just don't have the bandwidth to maintain such a model.

I do appreciate that many here have been quite good at self regulating, but the nature of forums means that they cannot be left to chance, even for short periods of time. Free speech is a wonderful and necessary thing, but it needs to be used very skillfully by every person on a truly Christian web site. I myself have not been exemplary in this regard in the past, and some significant changes in my life over the past while have moved me to reconsider the responsibility that comes with running a site like this.

Thank you all for your understanding in these matters.

Best,
Apollos
