This site, as of March 25, 2020 has two main applications running, Word Press and PHBB.
Their look and feel is different from each other. Usernames and passwords are different. If your username, for instance, in the Word Press area is ‘joe’, it might be ‘sam’ in the Forum area. Even if joe in Word Press is still joe in Forum, Joe’s Word Press password will be different from Forum’s.
Users in the Word Press area are administered completely by the administrators. If you want to post to the blog, contact the administrators and request a username for that area. After that username has been created, and the proper permissions granted, the new user can post content: thoughts and media.
Users in the Forum area are a little bit more free. Anybody on the world wide web, can register. That user should be able to do limited posting. The administrators then grant the user permissions so that the user can post to more topics and even create topics.
Both areas contain media and ideas.
As of March 25, 2020, there are no formal rules for what is allowed on the site. If a user seems abusive, nasty or obnoxious to the administrators, that user will be disabled or deleted. There’s lots of bad stuff in the world out there, and we will not add to that.
