New Memverse Forum

Time Posted on April 19, 2012 User Andy

It became apparent a while ago that the blog was starting to creak under the weight of the steady stream of chatter and discussion. A blog is actually not the best paradigm for hosting user discussions so we have launched a new forum.

I have been occasionally dismayed by some of the comments on the blog so would like to quote Justin Taylor from the Gospel Coalition to set the tone early on for the new forum:

I welcome blog comments, although they are often notorious for unfruitful and uncharitable discussions.

I hope this can be a place where we “seek understanding” before critiquing, where we are quick to listen and slow to speak, where we judge others charitably not critically, where we encourage and build up each other rather than tearing down and destroying each other.

I would encourage commenters to consider carefully the following commands and principles regarding our speech:

    “Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt” (Col. 4:6).

    “By your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned” (Matt. 12:37).

    “Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor” (Rom. 12:10).

    “Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear” (Eph. 4:29).

    Speak the truth in love (Eph. 4:15, 25).

    “If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person’s religion is worthless” (James 1:26).

Over time we will appoint moderators for the forum. My bias is still towards a liberal policy as I believe that we have a community largely walking in step with the Spirit. Let's all strive to outdo one another in showing honor.

Second, please do not use the forum to report problems. Continue to use the feedback tab on the right. It is likely that as the number of users grows over time we will have less and less time to keep up with what is happening in the forum. Feel free to continue to comment on the blog posts but we will now require comments to be directly applicable to the original blog post and subsequent comments.

Finally, if there are forums that you would like added, please let us know. We'd like to avoid having too many but if there is a big category that we've missed we'll be happy to add it.

I agree! What I've seen done is have several people picked who visit the site daily, and they are appointed "rangers" to check up on all the comments, and answer as many questions as possible and steer the comments in the right direction. Then, if anything gets truly out of hand, they report it to the "big guys", who have a lot of other stuff to do, and then the "big guys" take care of that problem. Kind of like what Moses did in Exodus 18. :-D

I totally agree! We should honor the Lord in our words and deeds all the time!

I agree too. Amen, Carliss! It'll be nice to have more of the comments relating to the actual topic instead of going off on "rabbit trails"... Something I have done a lot. :(

Ohhhhhhhhhhh good! We needed a new post.
Hey, Carliss! :) Glad you're on. Has Araleena posted yet?
@Jael - that's good. :)
@Andy - what if you put a "Feedback forum" on M so that those who don't and can't have a Get Satisfaction account can still report problems. And can we not allow politics to be posted on this new blog? It really made the other blog an "intense" blog to read...

@Andy or Alex -- Do all comments have to be moderated? I'm assuming that is what is happening, when you try clicking on a new post/comment and it says that "it couldn't be found". Am I right? Thanks.

The forums look really good.

@Carliss- I agree with you. Our words and actions should always be honoring to the Lord.

Matthew Sinclair- That would be a good idea. It really is easy to get off-topic sometimes.

I really like this forum! Thanks so much for putting this together, Memverse coordinators. You are great instruments in God's hands! May He continue to use you all and this site for His glory.

I have an apology to make for the intensity of some of my political comments. I should have kept them to a more appropriate time and place. Please forgive me.

Could there be a prayer request forum, or should that be under general chat topics? Is there someway to un-follow the forums?

i agree. there should be a blog or forum for prayer requests, and even for maybe counseling if anyone has questions for a problem in life.

I need 5 verses from the gospel to get to level 9. Does anyone know any good gospel verses?

SavedByGrace

@God's Dancer--If you do not have John 1:1-4 or so, those would be good verses to add. If you do, you could memorize some from Matthew 5 (the Sermon on the Mount) or John 10 (Jesus as the Good Shepherd, Christians as the sheep). Of course, you could memorize the Parable of the Sower or the Parable of the Talents... really, any 5 verses from the gospels would be great!

Does anybody know anyone to refer? I'm stuck on level 4 or 5 or 6 because I have to refer 2 people. :( lol

@BibleBeeJunior12 - What about someone from your family? My mom and brother signed up listing me as their referrer. Or maybe cousins? Someone from church? Hmmm... maybe I should take some of my own suggestions!

93fcb35bede1ac128cb83b71e8060885?d=wavatar
SavedByGrace

BBJ12--I have 3 referrals (which is why I am stuck on the level I am on...), consisting of ISC, OCTSRIS (who are two brothers from my church), and GMOV, my sister. So, I agree with RejoicingAlways(BethanyM)--the best people to refer are your Bible-loving relatives and/or church family. If you can't find anyone interested in memorizing the Bible, get them interested by showing them how important hiding God's Word in our hearts is!

(Of course, I'm being a little hypocritical, since I am too chicken to do myself what I have just suggested... :D)

@SavedByGrace - haha. My sister is on Memverse but I've already tried my other friends. No response.

Maybe I should wait until i'm doing bible bee and during the summer, see if anyone wants to do memverse...i know it doesn't make sense but it makes sense to me. BTW, all the avatars I"m choosing right now, I made!!!!! :) i used the bases from the Spareoom.net graphics and added all the extras. It is sooooooo fun to do!

Wow. I was looking at my progess chart and I made a big jump in memorizing verses a couple of months ago: I went from 13 to 64! :) Now I'm at 140 or something...only a few more dozen to go till I reach 200! :)

@BibleBeeJunior12 - Great! I have a couple big jumps like that on my progress chart, too. I'm getting fairly close to 200, too, but I won't have more than 5 memorized in the next month! Oh, well. *sigh* :)

@BethanyM - and then when you get that picture ( do it exactly how you did this one!!!! ) use photoshop and put them together. That would be really sweet...

Welcome to Memverse, Sarina! I hope you enjoy it :) I don't know what you're going through right now, but here are some verses that I hope encourage you :)

Psalm 23
Job 23:8-12
Isaiah 40:28-31
Romans 8:31-39

Also about your picture - you need a Gravater account to be able to change your picture. It's free, so you don't have to pay :) on Memverse - go to ACCOUNT, then click on PROFILE. At the bottom of the page, you'll see a link to Gravater. Hope this helps. :)

Hi Sarina - welcome! You're going to have plenty of friends on Memverse - I can tell you that much. It's kind of like a fun big family, right guys? Well, most of the time! :) www.gravatar.com will help - like Rachel said you have to have an account but it's really easy to do. Are you doing Bible Bee this year? It is a great way to memorize verses...if you haven't heard of it ---www.biblebee.org

@EVERYONE - how many of you have signed up for the Bible Bee and how many can't wait another minute? I am one of those people...:) LOL

All of mine used to be......when I had less. I have almost all of them tagged now.

@ Andy or Alex or anyone who can help: On several of the forums, I cannot see the latest comments - especially on the Prayer Requests one. The last one I can see is God's Maiden of Virtue's comment to me and another person.

E722bfd45297b0c0558ed8ed53593094?d=wavatar
Alex Watt

Zachary B - I think you have to go on to the second page. If you're at the top of the thread, on the top right you should see "2" (or "Next") -- clicking that will take you to the next page. I understand if you're not seeing it because you're on a 1024 x 768 pixel resolution monitor, in which case you would probably need to scroll over to the right. I was maxed out at 1024 x 768 up until a few days ago but just got a slightly larger screen, which is helping with Memverse.

What does it mean on the forums when your post says "This post is currently pending review. Only the user who posted it and moderators can view it?"

D7e51a6e027780a48295eb2d73bc059f?d=wavatar
2 Corinthians 5:17

Sarah Eddy - It means that only you and the moderators can see it until the moderators "accept" or "review it" first. After they accept your comment, your comments will show up right away. Hope this makes sense :)

C0928da0dba0ffe38d3cd02cf87a03b5?d=wavatar

@Sarah Eddy- you have to have more verses on your account, I believe. :)

@Alex Watt - I don't have a "Get Satisfaction" account and right now I'm trying to persuade my mom into letting me get a YouTube account. I think I'm getting close! Anyway, she wouldn't let me get a Disqus account so I'm not even going to ask about the Feedback account...Maybe someone who DOES have a Get Satisfaction account could take my ideas from the blog and send them in or whatever. But right now, I don't have any ideas except to make sure the chat section in the quizzes doesn't get into "traffic" like last time. And we need a little bit more time for the verses. Other than that, it's great!

I wasn't able to go last year because I couldn't compete in Locals so I really really really REALLY want to go this year - and if I make it, I think our whole family will be able to go because we live in Georgia and it would only be about 3 or 4 hour drive. :) And it's on my birthday! :)
@Jackie Chase - Ok thanks!

LOVE the new blog format, Andy (or whoever did it!) It may have been done a while ago, but as I haven't been on here for a l-o-n-g t-i-m-e, things have changed in a good way! :)

this is not good I was entering a verse psalm 9:4 and it did not have it in NASB so I had to type it in to enter it and when i pressed enter I accidentally hit the letter k and I did not know it Intel I looked at it and it is in the verse when you look it up and I do not know what to do

C0928da0dba0ffe38d3cd02cf87a03b5?d=wavatar

@follower of God - You're NASB too? Sweet - so am I! :)

I went to Gravatar and changed my photo over two days ago, but Memverse is still only showing my old one. I even deleted the old picture from Gravatar, but Memverse still hasn't recognized that I've changed it. Does anyone know why it might not be working?

follower of God--All you have to do is go to your "My Verses" page, find the verse, look at the last information box for the verse, which will say "Editable," and change the verse to its correct wording. Hope that helps. :)

Also, I'm so sorry to use the blog for this, but I'm not allowed to have a GetSatisfaction account, so...

I have a Spanish account, and I just added my tenth verse recently. I did the Reference Recall, and, for some reason, when I typed in the correct references for the verses that showed up (in English, which I know I am supposed to use), for some verses it said I was correct, and for others it said I was incorrect and told me that the reference for the verse was exactly what I had typed. For example, I typed in "Job 3:2," and it told me I was correct. Then I typed in "John 10:11" for the next one, and it said "Incorrect. The correct reference is John 10:11." I tried it twice, and it didn't work either time. Is there a certain reason for this? This has me pretty confused.

C0928da0dba0ffe38d3cd02cf87a03b5?d=wavatar

@AstroLeah - sometimes it takes a while for it to register. Gravatar and Memverse aren't the smartest websites around, you know. :) LOL

@SavedByGrace: I think you have to type in the references using the Spanish names for the books. In the case of Job, the Spanish name for Job is Job. The Spanish name for John, though, is Juan. As for the "Incorrect. The correct reference is John 10:11." Not all of the site has been translated into Spanish yet. I'm not sure exactly what is going on, but it probably has to do with the code. If all of the site had been translated into Spanish, it would probably say, "Incorrecto. La referencia correcta es Juan 10:11."

@Matthew - Yeah, it's not working for me either.

@Bethany - I think it's because they are in a different time zone than we are in....

With my apologies to Alex and Andy, I want to temporarily break a Memverse rule and write an off topic comment.

Gabrielle Joranson, (who will go by Gabriela since Gabrielle is a boy's name here) is getting ready to be the first 18 year old from the USA to ever (as far as we know) come to Indonesia for further education!!! She is not going to any of the top English speaking universities; or even to any of the well established, academically strong seminaries. Instead, she is preparing herself to learn Indonesian from scratch and enter into our poor, "60 students in each hot dorm room", "wash your own clothes by hand"; "5:00am (used to be 4:00am but they are getting soft) as one of 3 daily chapels"; recently attacked and homeless ( http://www.memverse.com/assets/SETIA.pdf ) seminary.

Please pray for her visa to get completed. Pray for her as her daily "fishbowl" life here will be a constant 24/7 challenge to her faith and Christian character. Pray for the impact she can have on the school and the impact the school can have on her. Pray for those around the world who could be inspired and encouraged by her story and our school STT Setia. Pray for us as Gabriela joins my wife and I in spreading a passion for Scripture and the gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the school and Indonesia. You can follow Gabriela's challenging historical year through her blog at http://strengthfromgod.wordpress.com/

Excuse me, but ever since the Strangs deleted their accounts, the Forums have been messed up. Any page they posted on doesn't appear, and we get an error message. Can you bring their accounts back, to fix it? Or fix it some other way?
