  • Re: Another Option for Keeping Spam Down.

    Armin's idea is a good one. But consider with me a moment another angle. Imagine you are a recent purchaser of the software, and you are having a glitch. You've never posted to the forum before. You have a sermon coming up on sunday, or a paper, or a test, or something where the functionality of Logos is hugely beneficial. Your very first post (or up

  • Re: Another Option for Keeping Spam Down.

    Email verification can still be done by a "bot". Captchas are a lot more complicated for a computer to figure out. They depend upon our own pattern recognition abilities, something that has not fully translated into computers.

  • Re: Anyone Else Underwhelmed by the Christmas Sales?

    I'm happy... I bought an upgraded base package for a steal... Literally. Sales did some consolidating, and discounting, and I ended up paying about 120$ (for silver) more than I was already going to give them in the next year. I have absolutely no complaints RE logos, and the current sale. especially if you are getting a base package. From what I hear

  • Re: REVELATION TIMELINE

    MIGHT I SUGGEST IN ALL HUMILITY AND AS A BROTHER IN CHRIST THAT YOU FIRST FIND THE CAPSLOCK KEY. all caps is hard on the eyes, and in internet culture is akin to yelling. I'm sure you weren't yelling at us as your first post (intentionally). Any how, welcome!

  • Re: REVELATION TIMELINE

    There are still some people in our country that do not believe there is a culturally inappropriate use for the middle finger. their denial does not change fact. Words, and actions are simply vessels that culture fills with meaning. All caps, means yelling. For other information RE nettiquette (how not to be rude on the internet) consider the following

    [quote user="fgh"] [quote user="Doc B"]I'd even go so far as to say it is completely untrue. While I know many who have trouble seeing small letters, I've yet to see a single person who has been harmed, visually or otherwise, by all-caps.[/quote] I for one find it extremely hard, slow, and tedious to read, to the point that I generally don't bother

  • Re: REVELATION TIMELINE

    In a post modern world you'd be right. My opinion is as good as yours. However, I believe there are absolutes. I am not now, nor have I been offended. I understand you are from a different cultural perspective. I've let you know how your actions will be interpreted and if you choose to ignore them I've done what I felt was right. If you want to turn

  • Re: Luckily We're Not Like the British (just joking of course)

    You know I spent some time there in 2009, the headlines at the time were re: the Jedi knight religion having some significant number of followers. I don't think the census is taken as seriously as we might think. Give them the option to put "necromancer" and I think that would be the new most about part of the census. I knew a missionary from Britain

  • Re: L5 Silver or lower level now or wait for L6?

    Unless I miss my guess here it sounds like you have a different approach than I do to my digital library. I do not read all of every single book. I store them and then later when a specific topic comes up I search across all books and journals to learn what they have to say. I recently wrote a paper on ephesians 2:1-10, searched the scripture reference

  • Re: Custom Upgrade Issue

    I am having an issue where it shows an upgrade discount of 30%. But when I add the package to my account, it says 25%. But after the sales rep went the extra mile, and talked to his manager, we worked out an arrangement that satisfied me. I don't think I ended up with exactly 30% off... But with the consolidation of two existing payment plans, I'm only

  • Daniel Akin Theological Library

    The president of my seminary gives every new student a copy of his book "building a theological library" . He also makes the PDF freely available on his website. Danny Akin is of course the president of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, a seminary with an enrollment of around 4500 (for last semester, no idea for this one) students who visit

    Closing remarks for my part... I'm hoping to be able to study under Black - he teaches at my seminary. He's only teaching greek during J term, and thats not a class I want to pack into two weeks. Also apologies to Logos for violating rule number 1 &2. [quote user="Andy Evans"] [quote user="John"]Is it the word "Garbage" that you are referring to?[/quote

  • Another Option for Keeping Spam Down.

    Step 1. Institute a captcha for all new members to prevent robots from making spam (most likely the new members that have only 4 posts, all four of them advertising some other site or produce are in this category). Step 2. Track our IP's - when it changes, challenge us with a Captcha. This means most of us will have to solve a captcha once a week or

  • Re: Question: Would you rather have 10+ quality resources or purchase a package e.g. Silver, Platinum, Portfolio...

    The answer for me is yes, I would want a package with a bunch of quality resources, that also has some writings I might not be exposed to otherwise.

    EBC, WBC, NICOT/NT are some of the resources my seminary highly recomends. I find it telling that no one mentions Anchor... I was wondering about its position on the right vs left continuum.

    If its the index, I believe" /rebuild index " (minus the quotes and space before the / and after the x) Beware though, this can take a substantial amount of time if you have a significant number of resources, or an older computer (or worse - both). My 3 year old computer re-indexes my library in about 30-45 minutes. I have a bit over 3000 resources

    Even if you wanted to set up some sort of "in-kind" program where the volunteer moderators committed to a certain number of hours in a month, and at the end of the month, they get xx$$ worth of book credits. A britt, an aussie, and a north American ought to suffice on a trial basis... If each committed to two hours a day, and was offered either a credit
