    I am Santha, the new IT admin.


    First of all, I would like to begin by extending a huge thank you to the Admins/moderators for their relentless efforts in keeping this community Christ focused and clean.


    Among several other social networking sites and forums, I love the fact this site has stood the test of time serving Christ centered folks and their needs.

    I would like to stay true to the mission of this forum and enhance the member experience wherever possible.


    I am open to thoughts and ideas, that would help members digitally get closer to god and experience the love and encouragement of the fellow members.

    It doesn’t have to be limited to changes to the look and feel of the site, if its daily devotionals or any other resources that would help better serve this community, please voice your ideas.


    In the coming few days, I am going to be reaching out to few users and admins to see how God prompts you to lead.


    Blessings & Peace

    Santha

    Thank you for taking time to introduce yourself.

    I trust that the porn attacks that immediately infested the BB after the last change of owners doesn't come to plague the forum, again.

    There is only a minor change that I would make, but the design may not allow, is to place the preview button among the three that occur below each post.

    The other "options" should include "upload file," "Watch this thread...," and "receive email notifications;" however, the preview button being mixed in with "other options" seems to be in the wrong place (imo).

    Don't be shy about letting us know your view(s) in the various forums.

    Thanks for all you do to keep the forum available.

    Hi Santha, nice to "meet" you. God bless you on your new endeavors with Baptist Board.

    If you read through the other posts in this very forum you will see a lot of suggestions.

    I would also add the ability to edit posts in the New Member and Member Questions and Feedback forums would be appreciated. Currently members cannot edit posts made in these forums.

    Would really like to access ALL my old posts via the search function. As is, only new ones since the change are available.

    1. Move the "Preview" button to the first tier.

    2. Figure out a way to include the old archives in the Search function.

    3. Appoint more Moderators who can respond more rapidly to porn attacks.

    Other than that the forum and its new owner/management is doing fine.

    Thanks and there is no place for porn related stuff on this forum.
    Anything irrelevant to the subject matter of this site should stay out.
    As few others were suggesting, we will have to get few more moderators to keep the trolls at bay.

    1 - Let me check into the styles to see, if we can move the preview button.
    2 - Already answered
    3 - I agree.
    I am a strongly believer, that trust is not given rather earned.
    So I would like the members to nominate other members for being moderators.
    The admins will go over the nomination list to make the picks.
    I will start a separate thread for this.

    I thankfully missed the porn attack here, but have been a member of other boards where they have occurred. The common MO seems to be to attack while most of America is asleep, so mods from other time zones seem to be the best defense.
