  2. Work to be done on the website before the official launch and video announcement. I'm finishing up some back-end items, working on the website rules and privacy policy, registering a DMCA safe harbor agent (To protect the website from copyright claims), tweaking the videos section, and have some work to do on the menus among many other things. I want to finish some of the items below before the official launch as well, but I am pretty constrained on time working on the back-end. If anyone would like to help out with planning these features, writing categories, and descriptions, or in any other way, it'd be greatly appreciated. This list is what I've put together so far, I'm probably missing some things, and some of the ideas need further refining. So if you see something that I forgot or something you think should be here, please let me know. I'm open to any suggestions, recommendations, or ideas. The Homepage I have the homepage set to display the most recent topics with new activity. Is there a more functional/better use for the homepage? Research Dashboard I've been thinking of building a "research dashboard" page of sorts. I know we all do quite a bit of research into all kinds of subjects. It would be nice to have a central place to create research projects, store information, links, pictures, pdfs, view and take notes, and even make tools to help the community with researching. I've still in the planning phase of this project, but have started to consider the following; What information do you use when researching a subject? How can this information be saved and then presented in a way that would be useful(topics, posts, database entries, links, notes, file/picture uploads)? What tools would help in general research/study? I'd to know what everyone thinks about this idea, would it be useful and should I build it? If you like the idea, what would you like to see in your research dashboard? Health, Food, Nutrition. I'd love to build a healthy living/eating section if someone wanted to take the lead on designing what that section should look like and how it should be structured. I could put it all together. We'd need to figure out what pages or databases we want, Food, Recipes, Keto Tracker, Home Remedies, Medicinal Plants and Mushrooms, etc. We'd need custom fields for the databases. For example, for the Medicinal Plants database, do we need fields for the common name, botanical name, description, medicinal uses, warnings, recommended dose, etc. We can have record feeds from databases and forums as well, so if we had a Healthy Living page, we could have feeds on that page from the recipe database, the medicinal plants, a private forum, a links database, and so on. Categories and descriptions would need to be written, and we could add anything else that might be useful to the Body of Christ as well. Homesteading, Homeschooling. Same as above. Downloads Categories and subcategories need to be created for things the body of Christ might need, KJV Bibles, Tracts, Public domain documents (Random References, the Wescott and Hort letters, for example), general PDF's, and so on. I think once the categories are in place, the downloads section will become quite useful. Videos It'd be nice to sort Bryan's videos by subject matter or create playlists of some sort. We could also tag videos(really anything), and then create feeds based on tags throughout the website. Similar content could be shown on topics, the research dashboard, alongside study pages, etc. This will be a big time-consuming project in itself, but I think it would help the ministry and have untold rewards for the body of Christ. If someone or multiple people were interested in taking up this project for the body of Christ, I could make a group with permissions to edit all tags. User Submitted Videos We just need some categories and descriptions written here. Bible Study Tools Biblical Glossary Should we have categories(what categories?) or list everything on one page? Bible versions database What categories or custom field would this have? Do we list authors, translators, release dates, publishers, missing verses, corrupted doctrine? Biblical Places database We could use a database to hold the Latitude and Longitude of significant places in the Bible and then feed it into a mapping application to be able to see at a glance where certain places in scripture took place. Bible Bookmarks? Tract creator A tract creator would be nice; I'm not sure how to make this yet, but it's on the wishlist. How to Witness - Database Say to the Mormon's or about the bible version issues. I'm sure we could compile some good information over time, and It'd be nice to have that knowledge base online to refer people to if you're short on time. If any has any ideas on how we could set this up, I'm all ears. KJV Bible Finding good electronic sources for the KJV bible, in any format, PDF, Text, SQL, Word, Bryan has talked before about the altered versions floating around. It would be nice to have a place where anyone could download a good copy. Pew, that took forever to write. Thoughts, Feelings, Ideas, Suggestions?
  3. NEW YORK (AP) — The U.S. Roman Catholic Church used a special and unprecedented exemption from federal rules to amass at least $1.4 billion in taxpayer-backed coronavirus aid, with many millions going to dioceses that have paid huge settlements or sought bankruptcy protection because of clergy sexual abuse cover-ups. The church’s haul may have reached -- or even exceeded -- $3.5 billion, making a global religious institution with more than a billion followers among the biggest winners in the U.S. government’s pandemic relief efforts, an Associated Press analysis of federal data released this week found.

On the subject of bushcraft, I'm in the learning phase as well, haven't had much chance to get out and test what I've learned yet. The book "Bushcraft 101" by Dave Canterbury is a good resource, he goes over all the basic equipment you might need and touches on a lot of good points, foraging, trapping, hunting, water collection, shelter. He also has some other books focusing on certain aspects of bushcraft, like trapping, first aid, etc. His website www.selfrelianceoutfitters.com/ has most of things he recommends in his books as well. It's pretty much a curated list of the best tools available for bushcraft, and has been a great time saver. Another book "Bushcraft 101 - Basic Guide to Survive in the Wilderness like an Expert" focuses less on the basics and more on practice, and is an excellent read or listen.
  5. The scary part is how quickly nearly every employer made wearing a mask mandatory. I deliver bread to major retailers (Walmart, Kroger, Dollar General), and all of them are requiring vendors to wear face masks. I fear we've a only a hop, skip, and a jump away from a vaccine recommendation, that will be mandated not by the government but by employers.
  6. I've not researched the Keto side myself, but have been intermittent fasting since November and have lost about 60 pounds. I really need to dive into the healthier eating/super foods side of things, but the legwork on researching some of these subjects is pretty massive. Maybe we should make a Healthy Living/Eating section of some sort? I started researching hunting and trapping earlier this year myself. While I didn't get very far into the subject (I keep finding rabbit holes to go down 🙂), I got my state license and bought some traps, wire, and snares. Have you ever looked in to bushcraft?
  7. After trying to send an email to an @live.com account, and getting a blocklist error in return, I've spent the last couple of days working on Domain PTR records, Reverse DNS, and email deliverability. I had already set up SPF, DKIM, DMARC, and the domains PTR records. However, the error I got from the live account indicated a problem with the PTR records. So I started double-checking settings, and came across an occasional PTR record error being reported within WHM, and CPANEL. After eight hours troubleshooting PTR records, BIND9, and all things related to DNS and domain name records, I emailed the web host, and they confirmed all my settings were correct with no errors being reported. I also emailed the Live support people, and they said our server IP address wasn't on the blocklist like the error message said it was! I'm going to give it a few days, and work on it again.
  8. Those poor silly Catholics. I wonder how do they eat Jesus with face masks on now?
  9. SACRAMENTO (CBS SF / CNN) — While you can still attend in-person church services in California, you can’t sing. The state, to curb a rapidly worsening pandemic, has temporarily banned singing and chanting in places of worship. “Places of worship must therefore discontinue singing and chanting activities,” he state’s Department of Public Health said in their latest guidance for houses of worship posted Wednesday (.pdf). “Practices and performances present an increased likelihood for transmission of Covid-19 through contaminated exhaled droplets and should occur through alternative methods like internet streaming,” health officials went to say in its updated order. California has had more than 24,000 coronavirus cases. On Tuesday, it announced 6,367 cases, the second highest total for the state since the pandemic began. This has prompted Gov. Gavin Newsom to tighten restrictions. Covid patients make up for about 30% of all hospitalizations, according to state data. Singing at services has proven to be one way to spread a virus, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The agency studied how coronavirus spread from one member to 87% of the singers at a Washington choir practice and said in a report: “The act of singing, itself, might have contributed to transmission through emission of aerosols, which is affected by loudness of vocalization.” California Tells Houses Of Worship To Discontinue Singing Amid Worsening COVID-19 Pandemic SANFRANCISCO.CBSLOCAL.COM While you can still attend in-person church services in California, you can't sing.
  10. I remember from a book on design I listened to (Intuitive Design: Eight Steps to an Intuitive UI), that most custom icons have little meaning to end-users. For example, our coffee cup icon at the top, I picked that icon for the notifications because the original didn't do a better job explaining what function it represented. While the design looks nice, at a glance, it offers no affordances as to what it does (show notifications). It does have discoverability; a little red icon will pop up on it, letting you know when something is there, and if you hover over it, "notifications" pops up, letting you know the function. Now, what does the Sad Smiley do? The trophy? The heart? Like Christopher said, the average user probably won't understand how reputation works, I think however we do it, it should be on the simpler side. As an example, the StackOverflow system of up-votes or down-votes is simple to understand, up = positive, down =negative, and is instantly learned by the user, but I think we all want a bit more variety than this. The prayer reaction we added, I think, works well. It conveys without saying prayer, and the pop up confirms praying. Most people looking at it will be able to tell what it is intuitively and will be able to discover the "praying" pop up when they hover over it. I agree rep for prayer should be neutral. I like the idea of getting rid of the heart, and maybe a research icon or thanks giving extra rep, as I think we all focus on research quite a bit. We can also limit the amount of reputation a member can give each day.
  11. Here's what we have, should we tweak these? The Positive +1 affect the members reputation, we can also add a dislike or a negative, once a post, or a member receives a set amount they can be automatically hidden for review. Like Positive (+1) Thanks Enabled Positive (+1) Haha Enabled Positive (+1) Confused Enabled Neutral Sad Enabled Neutral Praying Enabled Neutral
  12. I'm seeing more, and more of these stories. https://www.newsmax.com/politics/deborah-brix-masks-coronavirus/2020/07/07/id/976052/ This seems to be the trend, we're just making you do this until we have a vaccine. My fear is what happens when they have the "vaccine".
  13. I've seen it in Indiana at stores where I make deliveries, they are saying they can't get coins from the bank, and therefore can't take anything but exact change. Is The Nationwide Coin Shortage Being Used To Push Us Toward A Cashless Society? - Rethinking the Dollar WWW.RETHINKINGTHEDOLLAR.COM If you don’t run a business or deal with coins on a regular basis, you may not even know that it is happening… Meijer suspends cash payments at self-checkout lanes WWW.MLIVE.COM A national coin shortage has resulted from decreased economic activity. Got to leave for work now, will keep my eyes open.
