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.
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 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!

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.
