Discussion Group InstructionsOur discussion area is a text based section of our website where we encourage you to read and post messages of interest to the body. These message systems are typically referred to as "Bulletin Board Systems (BBS)" or "Threaded Discussion Groups" on the Internet, and are a popular method of forming discussion groups in the online community.
The discussion area is divided into a number of categories, called "forums", with each forum focused on a particular topic. Example forums are "Ministry and Evangelism", which focuses on discussion related to ministry and evangelism, and "gifts of the Spirit", which focuses on the gifts.
Reading and Searching a Forum:The first screen you see upon entering the discussion group asks you to select a forum and other parameters for searching the forum. The forums are discussion categories, such as ministry, open forum, politics, ... etc. Details of the discussion group categories are given later on in this document.
Once you have selected a forum, you can fill out other optional fields to search the discussion group (only the "forum" field is required). The search fields are described below:
Once you have entered your data in the BBS entrance form, click on the "Enter the BBS with these parameters". You will then enter the forum, with message links listed that match your search parameters. An example of the listing is given below:
The first line above is the start of a new topic, titled "New Discussion Room". The second line is a response message to the first message. Clicking on the link for either message will bring up the text of the message (The above list example does not have links, it is just for illustration).
A typical message, corresponding to the second link in the above example is given below:
Name: John Doe E-Mail: John@Example.com Date/Time: 2/3/97 6:52 PM Subject: Re: New Discussion Room Body: Praise His Holy Name! God Bless those who enter this room! John John Doe on 2/3/97 6:50 PM said: >>The LordofHosts.com BBS is now online!>> >>Praise ye the Lord!>> >> >> Replies:Note that the message includes the Name of the individual posting the message, their E-Mail address, Date/Time of message, Subject, and text body of message. Since this is a reply to a previous message (also from John Doe), the text of the new message is given, followed by the text of the original message that prompted this reply. Note that the original message is set off by ">>" marks. TRY TO LIMIT THE AMOUNT OF TEXT LISTED IN THE ORIGINAL MESSAGE (the part set off by ">>"). Readers can tell what you are replying to by reading the original message itself.
Posting a Message:Within a particular forum, you can post a message in response to a previously posted message, or start a new topic for the forum by submitting a new post topic. Posting a response is accomplished by clicking the "Post a Reply" button in the "Replies" section of a message. Posting a new topic is accomplished by clicking the "Post a Message" button. To return to the list of posted messages, click the "Message Archive (Top Level)" button.
Typically, somebody starts a discussion by posting a new message on some topic of interest, for example speaking in tongues. This would be a natural for a discussion group since the church has widely varying opinions on this matter, and is sure to elicit a response from somebody out there! Feel free to comment on anything of interest to Christians, just keep it Holy, mature, and even tempered (discussion groups get quite heated at times - so keep the "flames" down, and remember you are a child of God.) It is recommended that you include bible references in your message when possible.

Discussion Group RulesThe message board administrator (Job) reserves the right to delete any message, for any reason, at any time. If you conduct yourself in a Godly manner, this will not be a problem.
