Should be a couple of zeros behind that number...

That is an upside, it's a bit of a rebirth (as it were), not being held to the errors that I've made in the past:

Demoted? That's a good thing, right? Lk. 6:41, 42  Indifferent

Yeah, I hardly use the KJV anymore for reading or study, but I have to admit I'm glad it's what I cut my teeth on. There are still certain searches that I do in the KJV or NKJV because I forget the way the NASB phrases the verse. These young whippersnappers of the smart phone generation really have a gaping deficiency due to lack of KJV familiarity, especially since the vast majority of Biblical cultural references are keyed to it. If you said "mote and beam" to any regularly attending 20-something church-goer, you would probably just draw a blank stare. Sad.  Sad

Been there brother. That and when I'm reading publicly from an American English version I find that I start throwing in the eighteenth century words that I had once memorizedEmbarrassed

I will always declare that people should learn the Word of God in the language they think in, but even so I still find that the Majesty of the Old English has its presence. Just yesterday we were reading from Ezekiel and I had everyone listen as I read the passage from the KJV (just to give it a little more cowbell, as it were)

I don't see what you are saying. Possibly you have a mote in your mouth. >>> Or would that be a beam?

You can request to have your post count reinstated (all the posts you made under your old email address merged with the ones made since you changed it) by emailing the forum administrator at forums@logos.com.

Thanks Rosie, but it's no big deal. 

Plus it gives me an opportunity. That is, if someone who doesn't recognize my name replies to something that I have posted in order to help, or correct me, it will make them feel like they are accomplishing something.

As well, I can use the excuse of "I didn't know that was in the guidelines...", (for a while anyway) Wink

Yes, sometimes a clean slate is nice.

People can still find all your old posts by searching for your name in the forums, though.

Lots. And it's all still there. Not censored (if that's what you were implying).

Rosie,

The Google technique is somewhat inexact.  If I do a search on my name it returns 1,230, which overestimates.  On the other hand, for "Rosie Perera" I get 8,370, which underestimates.

Now I'm half tempted to ask for the reinstatement to see what the actual number is...Hmm

Paul, I trust you already know that you can sort all of your old posts in the forum!   Using your name I came up with a 163 pages of 10 posts each and one page with just 5.  As I figure you posted  1635 times! Surprise  But as many others have said, you can have Logos reset it if you want Smile
