for stuff unrelated to Baha'i? That would be nice.

And a merger of the old bulliten board discussions into the new forums. Somehow i think there could be some disscussion left in some of them.

Thanks for the suggestion. I'm afraid there's no way to merge the old bulletin board (see links to 1998, 1999 etc in the upper right corner) with the new forum. They're wholly incompatible systems (the old one was a file-based perl script, the new one a databased PHP script).

Re a forum for stuff unrelated to the Baha'i Faith, I recommend using Dean's (onepence's) News forum at http://bahai-library.com/forum2/viewforum.php?f=6 . Or if it's unrelated to the Baha'i Faith but of direct interest to it, go ahead and post it in the regular Discussion forum.

Shame about the bulliten board. :(

well, I was hoping for someplace where i could talk about things such as the redefenition of planet and stuff. a mean totally unreated to the baha'i faith. there people here are intelligent, not the run of the mill stuff you find over the net.

Sure, it's worth a try. What should we call the new forum, "Unrelated"? "Non-Baha'i"?

How about "general"?
