"Greetings and Welcome to our New Community Forums!

We have decided that one way to overcome any issues presenting themselves with the previous forums, was not only to solve them, but to fully upgrade our forums.

The JoS has now a new forum, better than ever before, that is beautiful, response and modern. Everyone is encouraged to login and begin posting and learning on the new forum.

Do not be afraid to experiment! Also, we are aware there have to be a lot of changes/improvements on the layout and everything that has to do with the forum. We are putting in the work to make it happen simultaneously as everyone accommodates.

-Posts, avatars, user accounts are as they were before.
-Your passwords are as they were before.
-Community is as before.
-Improved theme, light and dark theme as per your choice.

Stay tuned as we increase and improve everything that has to do with the forum experience. We know certain things need improvements.

Meanwhile:

1. Artists/Designers - Those with high art skills such as creating banners, backgrounds and so on, could message me at [email protected]
2. Programmers/Web Designers - We need more programmers and others who have valuable skills to join the designing efforts under the official group of JoS Coding. That will do wonders for the community.

I want to thank ApolloAbove [JG] for the fact that we worked together to get everything working and upgraded; but we have a lot more work to do. For troubleshooting logins on other problems, contact him at [email protected]"

Greetings everyone, I am very happy to have worked on this with HP, and bringing everyone a modernized, upgraded forum. This forum has a LOT of new features and abilities, and we will continue to grow JoS as a community through this. There were a very small number of users that had their accounts renamed during the upgrade. If you cannot log in for whatever reason, please contact me with more information: [email protected]
 
I'm also concerned with the new way that replies are done in the same page as the topic, I am not seeing a way to Preview what the comment will look like. This is a feature I use in nearly every comment I post, and with longer posts I often do many cycles of previewing and modifying the comment.

I see what you mean. This has plenty of possibilities for expansion and customization as well, so it can be rectified.

Okay. Thank you.

I'm also not seeing a way anymore to Mark as Read all posts from other languages at the same time. I used to see a non-english topic, click to go to that language's subforum. Then click all Multilingual subforums and be able to mark all of them at the same time. Now it looks like I can't do this because it looks like the Multilingual is no longer it's own section.

There is a preview button in the top-right corner of the toolbar. Click it once to enter preview mode, then click it again to return to editing.
 
This is easily the best feature every time a site makes it an option. So much easier on the eyes.
Thank you, we will be doing a lot of upgrades. This new platform allows us of major updating and major features, which were impossible before. Everyone can also search the forums and the software. There are abilities to do all sorts of things.

We are nowhere near done with the final forums (we will constantly upgrade things in here), but we opened them as quickly as possible for everyone to be able to communicate and get in.

We will have to learn the new platform etc ourselves as well, lots of things here.
 
I am using a mobile device, so maybe there are options that you see that I don't have. There is a button that looks like a page of paper and a magnifying glass, and this just turns the text box to be dark grey letters on a black background.

Yeah, that is it. It looks similar because it actually automatically renders many of the text functions, whereas before the software would leave in the text code.

How do we view unread topics? I see New and Unanswered, but I don't see Unread.
When you are on the forums tab, click "New posts". Then, you will see a button that says "Filters", and "Unread threads" appears checked as default.

This is another thing. I would like to respond to just the first part of your message and quote just that part. But it looks like there is no way to edit what I am quoting. There is no [ quote] and [ /quote] text shown for me to move or edit to change what is quoted.

If these bracket codes are no longer shown, are they still used? Are they still functional? I use the things like bold, quote, resize, and color change very often, especially the bold. And I never push the buttons, I just type the [ b] and [ /b] or whatever it is I'm doing.


The original thing I wanted to say before I found that other problem, is that the new preview is nearly entirely unusable for me. It shows nearly black words on top of a black background, which I am only able to see now because I'm in a dark room and viewing a bright screen. Every day I am in various different lighting conditions including bright sunlight, and I can see that this text will be impossible to view in most of those conditions.

Another great function of the seperate page for writing a reply, is that it is isolated in its own place and it is saved there. If I am interrupted, I may have to put away my device in the middle of writing something. And when I have time later, it will still be on that preview page and have saved what I wrote. And if some button gets pushed while in my pocket or if the screen turns on somehow, there is very little risk of any buttons accidentally being pushed on the old preview page because it was very simple and had few buttons. With the new comments now being in the same page as the topic, now there are a hundred buttons and links all over the page that could accidentally be pressed when I'm in the middle of trying to write something. It just looks like writings will become lost, or will accidentally be attached as responses to the wrong people, or may even end up on a completely different topic or page.

I don't mean to sound like I don't respect the enormous amount of work that people have done. But I can't help to be disappointed to see functionality be highly degraded and to have basic features either be made much more difficult to use, or even entirely removed. I would rather have something that looks simple and is easy to use instead of something that looks more complicated with a hundred pictures and buttons everywhere, but is not able to be used in a simple or easy way. And when "fixing" something does much worse damage than leaving it how it was.
 
Every user now also has the ability to have a profile; we are still learning the board around ourselves. Sort of like your own personal page/space.

On this profile, you can have elevated things as you grow in the JoS, like the ability to have this personal space to post news, or whatever else you want.

We are still examining everything. Chances are also that some SS who had posting privilege might have lost them over the transfer [We will restore all of this as we go].

Every user can also now petition to change their name, directly from the platform [a feature to not be used more than 2 times total]. When approved, this will be done.


I am also attaching a file here to show to everyone another feature, like the attaching file feature. This pic below was directly uploaded here, without the need for external services like imgur. Direct upload.

We want to move more into the community aspect here, with everyone having a more vivid presence here.

Your personal space and preferences matter a lot, that's why we want this reflected in the platform.

More abilities and conveniences for each member as well, compared to before, will make forums more pleasant to be in, easier to use etc.

Without violating the character of the forums which are for learning, the stronger community element such as the ability to selectively send messages etc, is also very helpful.

I don't think the functionality is as degraded as you may be assuming. There are trade-offs with everything, but you have to look at the sum total change.

Regarding your specific concerns:
  • You can still type unicode and it translates correctly, or toggle your view with the "Toggle BB code" button
  • Text color of quoted passages can be changed to suit individual needs, as can the text itself be modified or deleted
  • You can quickly save drafts of your replies, then just close the page or screen.
 
Also, now, even for trolls or jew type trolls, you can finally use reactions. On the right of each post, on the side of reply, there is a button for this. We will add more emojis and reactions soon, such as thank you and the prayer mudra.

Yet trolls and so on, you can like or dislike a post and you can also put an angry face or whatever to show how angry you are at developments that benefit everyone from regular users, even you my trolls.

I hope you too eventually see the light that the JoS is a force for good and join us seriously this time around.

Yeah there are some minor coloring issues. Change to the dark mode using the lightbulb near your username, or go into your preferences and change the theme. Should be easy to read.

Give it some time, the abilities and good things will highlight themselves. It's quite the shock to have to use a different platform and it's normal one can have certain issues when starting out. But eventually it will look normal.

In regards to features, make sure they are really missing, instead of thinking that they are. Basically everything that existed before exists on these forums.

We will have to do styling and color/theme upgrades and other upgrades. We will address things as much as we can.
 
I am unable to view on the home screen everything from "Important Articles" all the way to the bottom where it says forum statistics. Everything is blank but when I hover my mouse over the blank area, the mouse icon change and I can click on the invisible letters to send me to the page. I am using Pale Moon browser as I read it is quite safe. I am not sure if it is the browser or maybe the extension that does this.
Tested on phone and different browser that I do not use for JoS and everything works normally.
Couldn't attach image because it says the server ran into some error.
 
I think we need a new forum guide.

We will address this, just give us sometime to get everything in order. After this, everything will make more sense. Even to me this is very new here, that's way different than the older forums. Make sure to not fear to make some research around. Press those buttons and see what they do and so on.

Strange, we will look into this. Please keep reporting any bugs or inconveniences, and we will look into solving them.

Okay , it seems that I can post images from my other browser, then I think it might be the browser issue, but this is how the home page looks, both in light and dark themes.
If nothing, will soon look into switching to another safe option, no worries!

I was freaking out earlier thinking the enemy was attacking the forums. I literally sent an email to JG Blitzkrieg and HP Hooded Cobra trying to find out what was going on.

Thank you for your efforts and care High Priest!
Start of a new era. Let’s make the most of it!
 
The JoS has now a new forum, better than ever before, that is beautiful, response and modern.

I want to say, with time, I have witnessed the JoS evolving and this is a source of immense pleasure the point it reached today!
The JoS website is now much better organized, the new forum is advanced and modern, there is an organized Clergy and everything is taking the form of a very well shaped Empire with rules, responsibilities, and an infinite sea of knowledge and positive effort that support the Community.
It seems the JoS had more problems and a less "firm" organization before - despite the immense effort and courage of the first HPs, collaborators, HP Maxine herself that had to start up the JoS standing still in the middle of a spiritual earthquake. Today it is showing a granitic organized base holding it up, that is a clear sign of our fiirm establishment on Earth to further spread Satanic Knowledge, Energy and Power.
This reminds me the Pyramids, on the spiritual side.

Very and very well done !!!

It looks much more aesthetic than ever before and I see there are new features as well, and this makes it even more better.
