Welcome back
« on: December 13, 2012, 11:51:58 AM »
Welcome back, WWGHA members. 

Sorry for the long hiatus.  This forum was put in Maintenance mode so the owner could make necessary software upgrades.  Unfortunately, the upgrades have not been made and will not be made in the known future.  Rather than wait indefinitely for that to happen, we have opened the forum back up until the maintenance is actually performed or it crashes. 

Until then, enjoy.

Nice to see the forums back up.  When I get home this evening, there is going to be a LOT of new stuff for the Mailbag.

I can hardly wait for the mailbag to get opened back up. It's one of my favorite features of this site!

I'm soooo glad WWGHA is back up - there are substitutes, but this one remains my most enjoyed.

Finally. I have some control now! My power-trippingness can be reactivated! I just dare a theist to show up here!

We can only hope for the best, then. What about the archiving issue: is what screwtape suggested possible? Or would the upgrade have to come first?

jetson, Pony and I will look into what the options are regarding archiving.

I believe that the return of the forum, just as we approach the frenzy of the Christmas season, is proof of god's omnipotence.  It is His gift to us, as we approach the birthday of the baby Jesus, and I feel humbled before god's great mercy. 

He heard kaziglu bey's prayers, and He made Himself know to us.  I consider the return of the forum to be a miracle greater than the healing of amputees. 

Praise be!

Yaaa, Quesi is here! I missed you...

We're all wondering how you weathered Sandy? Is everything okay?

Addendum: Quesi, I found your answer to the Sandy question in another post. I'm very glad to hear that you and your little one got through it in one piece. Next time learn to live in a real safe place, like.... like... okay, I guess none exist.

Glad you got through it.

I was amazed at the certain lack of initiative that certain persons had in finding atheistthinktank.com

I'm sure that site will be dazzled by our superficiality when we abandon it, and come back here. But, it's only fair, because we can only spread ourselves so thin.

Do you think we need to re-staff it with some more obnoxious theists? I could advertise a position, using youtube for some more resident trolls.

I prayed that the forum would return and here it is.

Surely the only proof that even the most hardened hatefilled evil heretic atheist would need to know that God exists.

Thank you ParkingPlaces! It is great to be back. I was absent from the forum for a while (and therefore don't even know when it was put into maintenance mode). Been having a really hard time with life for a while and didn't have the mental energy to contribute. Then I actually started working on writing an anti religion book, and thought that this site would be a great resource for ideas, and came here looking to review some of my better posts for consideration. And lo and behold, the site was down! A dark omen to be sure <sarcasm>. It was pretty disappointing for sure, but glad its back up and running, and very happy to interact with all of you once again!
