    The Fund Drive

    Friends, Thanks so much to the three people who donated since I added the button. Every bit helps! Between taking down the old version of the site and now (about 2.5 months), we didn't have a donate button. A kind person donated enough to keep us covered during that time. The old site had a...

    Why isn't the forum domain in HTTPS?

    Lack of funds and lack of time for me to configure it. I just added a donate button to the forum--your or anyone else's help is appreciated. As far as the configuration, it's the next thing on the agenda. Thanks for asking!

    Last thing you ate

    Welcome to the new OC.Net

    The more tech-savvy among you will note that links that quote other posts from the old software were converted, but if you see a link that someone copy/pasted that references the old SMF links, they are not forwarding for the most part, but rather go to the forum's index page. Someone wrote a...

    Welcome to the new OC.Net

    Send a private message to Fr. George and myself and we will change it to what you want. Same applies to anyone else over the next 30 days who needs to change their username to what was displayed on the old forum.

    Random Postings

    I am working on some rules that redirect the old forum threads and posts to the new ones. There are quite possibly some bugs in the code. I will keep working on it. Thanks for letting me know.

    Welcome to the new OC.Net

    I hear you. It's very different. Unfortunately, the old system software was just not being supported and developed well enough to keep using it. I mean, it's 2020, and their software was not mobile-ready without massive hacks :( I will miss the look, feel, and user experience of the old forum...

    Welcome to the new OC.Net

    For some reason, some of the avatars carried over, while others did not. We had to make a decision of how much work to do versus how long to keep the site down. We decided to go with bringing it up today, even though some improvements are still ongoing. As far as the look of the site, I...

    Welcome to the new OC.Net

    Thanks, @JTLoganville for the datapoint. While I am not experiencing it myself, we are taking all feedback seriously. I will try to access the forum from a VPN or some other setup to see if I can replicate your experience, as well as looking at the server logs when I get a chance.

    Lenten Theme Is Back

    Hello Everyone, Hope you all are surviving the COVID-19 / Coronavirus situation! With the extra time on my hands, I remade the Lenten theme we used to use on the forum. Hope you enjoy. The last time we implemented it, some users complained about it being hard on their eyes. I have enabled you...
