We're expanding the conversation by introducing ADvindicate Forums. Now readers can converse on more than just the articles. We've created some new forums for discussion, but we want your input too, so if you have an idea for a new forum, leave a comment under suggestions.
ADvindicate Forums allows you to read comments from the forums and articles. Viewing the most recent comments is easy. Click on the "All posts" tab, and you'll immediately see the most recent comments from all over the website. If you have an account, new comments will be marked with a red dot. The "My feed" tab shows only your comments and any responses to them.
Filter what comments you see in your feed by using the forum bar on the right. For example, if you want to view only the most recent comments from the articles, click on "Recent Comments." This view will exclude all comments made on the forums.
ADvindicate Forums is where you'll find a list of broad topics of which you can play a part in creating. Under each topic you will be able to create your own thread. For example, let's say John wants to share a news article that mentions Adventists. He would click on "News," create a title for his thread and post it. Then others will be able to respond.
We're expanding our help forums too. If you have questions about any of the topics listed or have a suggestion, you can either search through the questions already asked or create a new one.
ADvindicate Forums features a search engine dedicated to comments, which makes it easier when you're looking for a particular comment. You can search by article, thread or user.
You'll never have to leave the ADvindicate Forums page or refresh it as all the comments are posted live. A green dot next to a thread or user's icon indicates he or she is typing a message. As soon as it's posted, you'll see the comment appear.
We've seen what's out there and most of it is archaic, using UBB.Threads (Ultimate Bulletin Boards). The largest forum charges a fee, but here it's all free, and we'd like to give a reboot to Adventist forums. Come check ADvindicate Forums out and take an active part in expanding the conversation.
