After months of waiting for some web hosting issues to be sorted over at Kevin’s Portal (which currently isn’t working), so that changes I have been working on could be uploaded, it is clear that the site needs to be moved – which should happen shortly (to the hosts I use for my other sites, which do do a great job – JustHost.com). So once again there needs to be some changes to the site. Frustrating really.
Reformed Particular Baptist Fellowship Set to Close
I have just been notified to major changes on the Grou.ps platform which hosts our Reformed Particular Baptist Fellowship at:
Due to these changes which include a move to a subscription basis for our group to continue to exist as is, it looks likely that the fellowship will close. There will be a free option, however, that option includes an open membership (anyone can join, post anything – spam, etc, and all content will be open for anyone to see). It is looking likely that there will be no more community associated with particularbaptist.com.
We do however have a page on Facebook at:
The problem with this page is that it also an open type of page, with anyone that ‘likes’ the page becoming a member of it – there is little way of moderating activity, etc. I think that particularbaptist.com will have to go back to an older way of doing things, with a forum, chat, etc – all on different platforms.
It seems that there are shake ups right across the World Wide Web on community type sites – even Google Groups are changing, making Google an impossible alternative also.
Work Has Begun on Our Confessional Standards
Work has now begun on redesigning and upgrading the confessional standards of particularbaptist.com – but I should point out that the standards themselves are not being changed in anyway. I am working on the pages, not the standards. Phew, we are still Particular Baptist – yes!
To view the pages being worked on please visit:
At this stage I have only completed the 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith page, with the others to follow shortly. It has taken a little longer than expected as a couple of the designs didn’t appeal to me and I had to start over. I am satisfied with the 1689 page now and don’t think I’ll be changing it greatly in the near future.
