I've been interested in joining a good Christian message board, but I've looked around, and almost everything I find seems to be completely overwhelming, or not very active. So I figured I'd try to make my own.  I like the little forum we have here, but I've really been looking for something that's a little bit larger scale.  I would love to see the one I've made take off and become active, and a good place for Christian fellowship.

If anyone is interested, it's here: http://bodyofchrist.informe.com/forum/  Please come and check it out!  You do have to register to be able to see any of the forums, but that's because I feel better knowing that things I post are not on display for the whole internet.  We currently have a booming membership of 2 (hi, Michelle!), but as soon as you join, that'll be one more.  Yes, I'm doing my own little informercial now.  It's slices!  It dices!  You'll lose 20 pounds instantly!

It might not be a noticeable 20 pounds, so don't be discouraged if you don't feel any lighter.  ;)

Count me in!  And I'm feeling lighter already!  Ok, well, not really.  But I feel emotionally lighter...does that count?

I thought 'BaileysBooks' would be a bit of a random name for the new site, so I modified it a bit and went with BookWyrm instead.  Looking forward to seeing more over there!

For some weird reason, it's sending random people to the inactive user list when you sign up.  I don't know why.  So if you sign up, and it looks like you're sitting there waiting to be approved, send me a PM here or something, because it's not notifying me.

I hope more people join, and more people start posting.  I'm having fun with it!

Anyone else having trouble logging on to the new forum today?  I tried on my work and home computers but I can't get the page to load.

It hasn't worked for me at all today, all day long.  I'm really hoping it's just temporary.  I put a lot of work into setting that up, and I really don't want to have to do it again.

I hope it's just temporary as well!  I've really enjoyed being over there and I really hope that all your hard work won't be lost.

And to think that we just got of all those great new smilies...

I went to sign up.  Unfortunately because it requires a verification and that email went to my home email (and I'm at work), I won't be able to do that until this evening.  Looking forward to seeing you all there though.  Sounds great.

We disappeared.  Hope it's a temporary thing.  Anyone else having a problem finding this forum now?

Yeah, Lisa, it's not working this morning for me either.  I don't know why.  There could be a more reliable message board host out there, but I don't want to switch to something else and lose everything we already have.

Michelle, I have no idea why it hasn't worked for you for a few days.  That's weird.  This morning is the first time in awhile it hasn't worked for me.  That's a bummer.

I was able to get on last night, but it was completely gone for me as of this morning.  I got sent to the Informe homepage that tells me to wait for the newly created forum to appear.

Here forum forum forum.........forum? .......come baaaaaaaack!    :(
