Re: Do you want to help proofread Baha'i Writings?

Thank you, Sara! Please do consider contacting the Proofreading Project (email address given above). I would love to have your help proofing material at this website, but truthfully I think your efforts would be better spent with them, because this Baha'i Library is pretty much a one-person project ...

Re: Why men are (almost) never depressed ;-)

Well, I don't know anything about tanks, but the rest is pretty spot-on. No lines at the washroom is probably the biggest perk.

And on the web there's no review at all, so all's good for us. :-)

Re: smilies arent loading

BTW, it appears that a few years ago I installed a duplicate of smileys in German. I'm clearing out the duplicates now, but there will still remain a few that have German listed for the "emotion" code. The software is still buggy, I can't install new smileys because I keep getting an error...

Re: smilies arent loading

I had disabled avatars because I felt they made the forum look cluttered.

But I can be talked out of it. Is there overwhelming demand for avatars? Anyone?

Re: smilies arent loading

It was an upgrade problem. I fixed the smileys. Some will still have problems, e.g. the sizes might be wrong resulting in smileys that look squished or mis-shapen. But oh well, at least you now have 200 to choose from. :-P

Re: Is everything working?

Thanks! I'll un-sticky this post.

BTW, I restored the 1997-2003 archive. There are some gems in there (along with some junk, of course.)

Is everything working?

Hi all

I upgraded the forum and the template, and inevitably, things got messed up. I think they're all fixed now.

If you encounter any problems, either post here or -- if you can't login or register -- email jonahwinters(at)gmail.com

Thanks! -Jonah

Re: Testing browser support for embedding PDFs. Calling iPads!

Aha, speed of loading and crashes -- I hadn't thought about that. Can someone who has an iPhone, iPad, or netbook try viewing some of the latest PDFs, e.g. at Lights of Irfan volume 3 , and post here if your device handled them OK? If embedded PDFs crash devices, then yes, I'll have to post a link t...
