I did it! I posted and sent a PM and I am now in a chat room.
The Blind Beggar is a character in Rebbe Nachman's story of the Seven Beggars.
If I view a woman as an object, I am powerless over lust, but I don't have to look.
I can guard my eyes.
I want to guard my eyes.
I do guard my eyes.
Why do I say these four lines?

Has this been migrated yet?
It looks like other users have all their old stats. How would I do that?


It looks like they took a snapsot of the site from a few months back and threw it on there for testing. When they go live they will move it all over in real time.


No, I mean that it looks like some testers have their old stats.

Most of the site is too big and spread out. It's hard to use on an iphone.

The font when typing a reply to a PM is teeny. And I really want to be able to view PM conversations as threads.

The User list says on top that there are 668 users, but there are only 124 on the list. The list also shows both the user's display name and their username that they originally signed up with. Sometimes someone changes their name for a reason and they don't want their original name seen.

Tried to get on the chatroom (which still doesn't work properly on MSIE). Called the hotline and ext. 5 does not exist, just goes back to the main menu.

By default when you reply to a PM it deletes the original message unless you clear the checkbox on the bottom > > >

Sorry Gevura, but forget MSIE and use a real browser like Chrome or Firefox. I used the chatroom on Firefox 11 last night.

is there not an equivalent of the "show new replies to your posts"?
wouldnt it be smarter to have that option instead of the "no replies" option?
why would i want to see which topics have no replies?

We find that the yidden complained about the monn twice, once at the beggining of the 40 years in the desert (bilti el hamonn eineinu) and once at the very end (venafshenu katza balechem haklokeil).

Why did they complain only at these two instances?

the generation that left mitzrayim were accustomed to eating regular food and when they were put on a monn-diet they complained that it did not satisfy them because it did not look like food, even though it tasted like food it was missing the visual satisfaction (bilti el hamonn eineinu).

The generation who grew up in the desert never ate regular food and had no reason to complain. The generation at the end of the 40 years had to travel past the land of Edom and saw people eating regular food and therefore they complained as well.

this shows the importance of guarding ones eyes


This also shows that people complain when they have to use new things but in the end they get used to it and are happy.



I can't believe I was so negative about the new forum in 2012. I love it now!

I just tried it the first time and I wasn't used to it. I think give it a few weeks and if possible then update in whilst in use.
