Hi everyone. I’ve been getting a lot of email and I wanted to clear up a few things. First, registering for the main site, registering for the forums, and becoming a member of the CoBM are three distinct things.
By registering for the main site it allows you to comment on posts. Later on registered members of the main site will be allowed to do an assortment of things which may include uploading photos and writing articles (which will be reviewed and posted by admin). Other suggestions are welcome.
Registering for the forums allows you to take part in discussions. As of right now, all topics are in public view but later on there may be discussion topics which will require a person to register in order to view and post to them.Today there is no way to officially register as a member of the CoBM. The reason is this: this site and all of its operations are being handled by a single person. I am not currently prepared to handle hundreds of member applications as well as other day to day administrative duties. But more importantly, what does it mean to be a member of the CoBM? Do members have duties they must perform? What are the requirements to become a member? These are weighty questions and I don’t believe a single person should have all the say in such matters. For now this is what makes sense to me- If your beliefs closely resemble the doctrine of the CoBM and you would like to consider yourself a member then do so. When this policy changes and there is an official member application we will let you know.
For now I recommend everyone, regardless of whether you consider yourself a CoBM members or not, to participate in the forums. That way we can get to know one another and continue our journey and expand our knowledge.
