This free WordPress blog thing works slightly differently to my own blog, hosted by me and not by WordPress.com.
Users sign up to my blog when they “register” but here, it seem that all you do is register for a WordPress account. Interesting. And slightly irritating as it means that you are not one of this blog’s users and so you cannot actually create stuff.
The solution is to be invited, by me, to be users of this blog. To do this I need your WordPress user name and/or email address (your WordPress user name is probably better – never leave your email visible on any blog or web page, unless you really want to be spammed!).
In order that I don’t start spamming everyone myself, please leave a comment here asking for me to invite you to join as users here. Just leave me your WordPress user name and I’ll send you an invite. I think – teething trouble etc – that when I do that, you will appear in this blog’s list of users and when that happens, I can change your admin level to allow you to create stuff.
As I said above, it’s slightly different on these free blogs. Sorry about the hassle.
Welcome to the new blog for ex-Friends Reunited atheists, and everyone else too of course!
Introduce yourself in the comments below when you have registered for a WordPress account (which you can use in many places, not just WordPress Blogs) but don’t give too much information away as this is a public posting. No bank accounts, addresses, email addresses or credit card numbers here please – Identity theft is rife as is email address harvesting by spammers.
FR was a pretty decent site for a while. There were groups where like minded atheists could get together, virtually, and have discussions about almost anything. Sometimes we got trolled by the religiots but eventually they would depart.
However, Fr upgraded the site – I use the term upgraded loosely – and broke it. Groups were gone, but old ones remains. They were just unworkable in the new regime. Support calls to FR went unanswered or were answered with a simple “like it or lump it” – so quite a few people decided to lump it.
This first post is just here to gauge the need for a similar situation where we atheists can get together and chat. Christians can come in too, bring a drink or two and a comfy cushion, but be prepared for facts and science, not myths and legends!
You’ll need to sign up for an account, or login with your existing WordPress account to comment, but that’s not much different from before is it?
