We have sections you must join to use. You can see the full list here. Most you can join with a click. The medical and pastoral groups require approval.
Note, some groups were not accepting new members properly. That is fixed.
Post in this section can be seen by guests and search engines.
On the QnA board, there were no written guidelines or rules, and that was by design to see how the community could police itself. For the most part, everyone played nice. But, with the new format and the expected growth of membership, it was felt that having some guidelines/rules for people to refer to, and as a guide for the new team of Moderators, would be a good idea.
For those who remember the old phpbb boards, the guidelines should look familiar, as they were adapted from the ones that were in use then, although they have been simplified greatly.
Please know that I as Board Czar and our Moderarors will be using the Rules/Guidelines as the standard for moderating the TMB boards, so all those who have transferred over from the QnA boards, as well as new users, need to be aware of them.
Thank you for being a part of TMB!
