    Impressive! The length of time, that is. But we all missed you when you took breaks. :)

    Anyone know how old the BB itself is? :Coffee

    I haven't found one for Baptists in general (there are sone for Calvinists and some for "Christian" with the "Christian" taken very liberally.

    That said, I don't know that this board is "dying" as much as it is currently closed to new members (which could very well change....we've passed through several owners and our absentee landlord may pop in sometime).

    In other words, to provide you comfort - at least we have each other :Biggrin . We have enough to start a good fight without adding new members.

    NO - 1) I was getting hundreds of fake new members - I tried to make changes - but to no avail
    2) I un-intentally let it lapse. trying to get it back.

    Have you tried? For five months now I've been able to access only a fraction of my content (oddly the same amount of time of no new members).

    Here's one way to find content. If you can remember key words of your content, go to Google and type the following. This is just an example for me if I was looking for a post of mine on vacation bible school.

    site:baptistboard.com vacation bible school scarlett o.
    Use your own key words and your own name

    @Scarlett O.

    Thanks, I've been doing that, but your way seems much more thorough and will undoubtedly get more results. I was referring to the BBs' search function.

    Sorry to hear that. I haven't tried to save my older stuff lately. I generally save stuff in MS Word when I write it if I think it's worth it.

    hasn’t it been announced at least annually to always avoid awfully awkward alliteration?

    I believe some of the Administrators may have passed away.

    Yep.
    I was here months ago, and got tired of the weirdos who spout garbage and get all testy when you question their heterodox beliefs.
