i found the thread referred to, in my prior post. It was under the dialogue with Alex box, but NOT reflected in the current thread. Here’s what I’ve said:
I use my theology thread, as a place to hold interesting things I say - in other threads. I’ve included other thread info in it. Like the discussion I added, regarding a miracle in Non-Christian religions. Which I did in the thread, here entitled Salvation For the Dead. It looks like things were truncated. But I could be wrong. But I’m sure my memory, doesn’t fault me yet. Is there a way, to compare the word count…between a PHPBB post and the migrated Discourse post? That’s probably the easiest way to check.
Just a note to everyone. Alex is the person, with the REAL answers here. As he is the SME (Subject Matter Expert), discussing these things. But I have a deep understanding, of what goes on - behind the scenes. And can point folks to, the right discussions on Discourse forums.
For the record, I used to be involved - in all phases of software engineering. As a consultant, for companies like United Airlines, Allstate and Discover Card. And did things, as an employee of Motorola. Like run Apache web servers on Unix. And work on Oracle and Microsoft SQL Servers. Which means I can understand, the Discourse discussions - before I post them.
I’m committed to help be, a source of information. To make things here a success. But Alex is the MAN.
Regarding a previous question on edits. I have taken many courses, on creative writing at COD. And have worked, as a technology copywriter. Perfecting writing, involved a series of editorial efforts. If someone gets EVERYTHING right the first time… they probably don’t have anything interesting to say… Especially on long posts.
Now, I am officially retired. And spend my time, doing relaxing things. Like creating a balance…between doing things, like perfecting popular romance and Asian languages…with watching non-redeeming shows, like The Walking Dead and Fear The Walking Dead.
