Can someone catch me up please?

This is for encouragement, ideas, and support for people going through a faith transition no matter where you hope to end up. This is also the place to laugh, cry, and love together.

Only the little bits and pieces that folks saved on archive.org remain from NOM 1.0. When Thayne gave up, he GAVE UP! It seems the plug was pulled, and nothing was saved.

Quite a few folks made it over from the other board, many did not. Some of us have become more cantankerous and ornery. (Me...)

It's good to see your typing. Looking forward to hearing what's going on in your life at this juncture if you'd like to update us.

I have an inkling of your old online face, I'm sure I'd recognize it, definitely remember your "name".

The alien visits once in a very long while, but feels he really doesn't fit. I miss him, i wish he'd come share his mild barley drink knowledge more often. Dave? Nom? Dunno. Hopefully if they're around they'll raise a hand (to the square?)

When NOM 1.0 went "Poof" a few of us hung around on Reddit and mormondiscussions as refugees for a while, and kept in touch a bit that way. Someone noticed that newordermormon.net was available and purchased it, and a few smart web-type-folks got things rolling here at NOM 2.0. I'll let them volunteer their identities...

Well, I found my avatar from the old days. Doesn't really apply to me now as it did then.
I'll work on an current intro.

Thanks for the update. How long has the board been back alive?

I'll reach out to Chad or give him a call. I've not seen him for about a year but I need to fix that soon.

Welcome back GT!

I feel like you need a space between your name and a S or something.

The board went down almost 2years ago and then finally disappeared August or sept 2016. Hagoth and Corsair are the first resurrected beings who appeared to me when I knelt down in a grove of trees and asked which board I should join. They told me not to join any other board for they were going to restore the one true board. And here we are minus the .org.

Welcome back.

Dude, that's not how you told it the first time. You said it was just Corsair surrounded by scripts and glory, whatever that means, and that he forgave you for hanging out on mormondialogue.org.

You need to be careful so you don't give people a faithless crisis.
Grieve. It's your right and inheritance as a human being.

Each version of this vision of the creation of NOM was created for different audiences. Red Ryder also reported that it was simply Captain Salty who appeared to him, but many NOMs might call him "Corsair" instead of Captain Salty. The confusion was obviously why a restoration was needed.

This incarnation of NOM seems to be relatively drama free. It is nice.

Sad to hear none of the old archives survived. Some of my best rants were in the old "Angst" forum.

Glad another prodigal NOM lost sheep had returned to the fold!

I can't remember what I left on the old board vs the new; just have to let the past go and move on I guess.

Hey.

I kind of miss old NOM.

But, I do seem to be a little more productive and get a lot more s*** done now that I'm not over here visiting with all you a holes all day and night. Good times.

Names transform during the fullness of time. Captain Salty was from the original Nomic tongue, whereas "Corsair" seems to be Reformed East Hoboken.
Good faith does not require evidence, but it also does not turn a blind eye to that evidence. Otherwise, it becomes misplaced faith.
