Oh yeah.  The new forum is at http://trp.wordsfree.org/

I tried to register there but where it says "Type the letters shown in the picture" there is no picture. If I select "Listen to the letters" I don't hear anything.

That's really strange.  I haven't been logging in recently and didn't see this post until just now.  I don't know why it would do that but I can register you manually.

Dear CatBiscuits,

Welcome to our forum!

It's been quite a while since anybody posted here, but there are a couple of us still around and there is lots of cool stuff to check out.  We've kicked around some ideas for what to do with this forum going forward, but meanwhile it doesn't cost anything to keep it running so it's here ready for us to use.

It was nice to meet you over on Facebook, and I'm glad you decided to join us here.  Smiley

Hi, I just want to say to whomever might read this, please consider coming back to or joining the forum.  You may or may not know me from CAF...I'm a very scrupulous gal.  There are some wonderful people at CAF, and I will always be grateful for their kind advice and prayers, especially when my mom was dying of cancer.  But I sometimes feel "scolded" there for being who I am...and who I am is someone who struggles with scruples.  I've made progress that no one really sees because I usually only post there when I'm having a "flare-up."   I don't always agree with everyone here at Wordsfree, but I feel safe here.  Safe to be me.  Safe to be scared or confused.  Safe to express my opinion.  And I think that's the goal Alan was striving for.  We need to have a safe place to discuss issues, to vent, to support one another.  So if you're thinking about joining or coming back, I hope you will.

Hi.  I don't intend to take this down any time soon, but I don't know what to do for more traffic.  I did start a new forum for another group involved in my new online Skype-therapist using the new software but so far nobody went over to it.  I've been too timid to upgrade this software for fear I'll break something -- but as long as we have it I can't have online registration because this old version is not secure enough to prevent robots from joining and posting stuff.

There are still lots of dreams and plans I have for what we can do with online forums with open and honest discussion with option for private rooms -- I know there are people, like us, who would benefit.  I don't go to Catholic Answers so much where I used to find members because I just kind of lost interest in trying to discuss things while coloring inside the lines of judgmental Catholics at the same time and I don't have some grand plan.

Also I don't have any specific grand scheme to grow or focus on so at this point I don't expect many new members.  The ones I was talking about earlier didn't apparently get back to me about joining.

But for now I keep it open unless I get brave and upgrade the software.

That said, I'm planning to open the new forum, even though I only got one guy to join so far and he hasn't even posted yet, for other purposes than this online guy and if our TRP people end up joining that's great; we can make them a separate section if we've gone and used it for others.  One advantage to that is I don't have to make decisions then about what to do with all of our legacy discussion here; I could leave it here for read-only because at this point I'm still pretty attached to a lot of the memories here, especially of my brother and our friend Reen who both died and we can still read their old posts.

In case you're interested, you're welcome to join the other one because if I find people that wanna talk about religion, I'll build it there instead of here probably.  I'll leave this open in case anybody who used to post comes back looking for it.  I think you have done a good job of capturing what we were creating here in terms of discussion environment and I don't know where the Spirit will take us all on this but for now I have no specific plans but no limit to how much I can dream of the good we may be able to do in the world.

Alan

Tried to quote you, Alan, but it's been so long I forgot how--lol.  Anyway, bring 'em in...surely some others would like to have a safe place for discussion.

Just checking in, Alan, to see if there are any new posts.  Would love to see the boards "revive".

Oh my gosh.  This is amazing.  I hadn't even logged in for a long time, and today I met someone I want to invite here.  I was just checking to make sure the site was still up so I could complete a PM to him I'm about to send.

I've heard there are a couple posters at CAF who may want to join us here, so here's a post about it.

As is apparent, this place is pretty dead, but it can quickly be brought to life... I'm even up for a little rearranging maybe.

Here we allow "freedom" for your "words" I don't care what you believe as long as you're not a jerk and want to join in the discussion.  Forum rules are few and pretty much arbitrary -- but we don't have any problems here in this little village.

There are also boards for "members only" so we can discuss things without them being publicly available -- also we have made up special access rooms from time to time for particular situations.

Welcome new members or lurkers!  I've actually been thinking about starting a new web site, using the latest version of Simple Machines' forum software that has better security and we can go back to having on-site registration maybe, etc.  But here will do just fine until that happens, if at all.

Registration at this time is only through admin, due to swarms of bots that like to register and other stuff blah blah blah.  If you want to register then just send an email to me at alansiegman@yahoo.com, and give me the email you want to use to register (no ads or newsletters) and the login name you want.  Optionally, give me the password you want or I can make one up.  Then you get an email with the login.


Alan
