    When I start a thread in the forums, do I have no say whatsoever as to the direction of that thread?

    And as the OP of a thread am I required to divulge my personal beliefs at the request of any? Even staff? Is that mandatory?

    Further, when I do not follow precisely what someone else here deems it their privilege to tell me how to post or not post (whoever that may be)... does this subject me to any sort of reprisals?

    PM me if you wish to know the identity of the one

    When I start a thread in the forums, do I have no say whatsoever as to the direction of that thread? The A&T forum is set up for discussion about doctrine and understanding. This requires that you state your position about a topic and expect to defend that statement using scriptural support as others may respond to your opening statement with counter arguments. The forum rules do not allow for members to decide the rules of engagement or how others may respond. The direction of the thread is determined by the topic of your opening post and not by rules set by the one opening the post.

    And as the OP of a thread am I required to divulge my personal beliefs at the request of any? Even staff? Is that mandatory? You post at CFnet by your own volition. Nobody can force you to type anything you don't want to type.

    Further, when I do not follow precisely what someone else here deems it their privilege to tell me how to post or not post (whoever that may be)... does this subject me to any sort of reprisals? Yes, if what you are posting is in violation of the ToS.

    For some reason, whenever I open CF.net I have to log in each time. I never had to do that in the past. Has something changed? Each time I log in I check the little box to keep me logged in.

    This kind of issue is over my head but some things that I have done in the past that seems to help is to clear you cookies and make sure your browser is set to accept cookies. I hope I'm phrasing this correctly. Maybe someone more knowledgeable can expand and correct what I'm saying.

    Ok, I'll try that. I'm also having the same problem like, if I have ceased posting for, lets say an hour, then hit "alerts" it makes me log in every time I spend some time away from the computer. :rollingpin

    Which browser are you using?
    Internet Explorer, Firefox or other?

    Hey the format has changed!

    Is there some format preference I need to change to get back the old format?

    I'll have to see if it can be setup in user preferences. Right now, by default, it isn't.

    Got it.
    You can choose the default in "Preferences". We've been having some connection issues with our forum host as far as load time is concerned. Sometimes it gets awfully slow. So the style you see now was designed for speed.
    Anyway, you can select the previous style if you wish.

    I tried the old style again and already prefer to use the new one.

    Just so you know, when I make changes to one style I need to replicate it in any other active styles. Having two styles effectively doubles the workload.
