Greetings to all our People and Comrades!
The link to our Forums for those that don't know of their existence:
I know this comes of a bit late due to many requests (And serious lack of time on our behalf), however, its going to finally happen. The issue with this is that there was no real way to "Correct" the announcements thing, however, due to help from other members, we had some solutions presented (Thanks everyone-) and now we decided that we are going to let everything as it is (Nothing will change on the Forum except the clutter will be removed, so the forums can load easily and be more user-friendly). Nothing will be lost, no post, sermon, views count or everything, but the majority of the space will belong to the members from posting.
I again and again attempted to make this change, but the forum panel is not very "allowing" of such. It is also more complex than it may seem in many ways. However, this will seriously organize and tidy up everything, to the point where I persume everything will be flawless and user experience will be better.
So from now on:
1. There will only be around 15 of the latest Clergy announcements/sermons/posts in the announcement panels. This will remove clutter from all our multilingual groups as well.
2. All posts that have been posted here, will move to the Forum of "JoS Newsletter". For that reason, if anyone wants to find older posts, they can use the search function as usual, and they will have to go to the JoS Newletter Forum. Also, these will be uploaded in the Library and will be easily found by anyone who wants this.
3. There will be enough space for all members to post and do everything they want in the poster section. This will give anyone more freedom to have their posts noticed and answered.
4. No more phone loading lag-time. Even the JoS Newletter (where all the announcements will go) will be in pages, so therefore, no lag whatsover.
One favor I need to ask is that from now on people should use the JoS Newletter and JoS Library, to direct people into finding the older posts. The dates of the posts, their views, aside everything else, will not be affected.
Now, as for the Yahoo Groups, few things can be done, as Yahoo has really wrecked the groups. We will try to reduce spamming and get as many people as possible to make an account here as well, as this benefits everyone to be in two places at once.
The changes will be gradual and will probably *NOT* affect anything, so everything proceeds off as normal.
