      Major Update to OL (please click to open)   02/09/2016

      Sorry for the inconvenience, but we had to update OL and there have been some serious changes made by IPB. The real bad news is that they had to merge User Names and Display Names. This meant that I had to choose between bad and bad. I opted to keep the log-on information the same, so you can get on OL like you always did, but now your User Name is displayed. If your User Name and Display Name were the same, you will not feel the change. If they were different, you are probably irritated right now. I will figure out how you can change this so you can revert to the Display Name you used before if you like, however this may entail a change in how you log-on. The good news is that OL is now searchable from the very beginning. This means all the old posts from the A-Team in Objectivism (and everybody else) will finally show up when you search for something. I will keep changing this announcement as we adapt to these new changes. It's a pain, I know, but after looking around the backend for a bit, I believe the benefits will far, far outweigh the current irritation. They changed things in a hamhanded way and I don't like that, but I can't do anything about it. Benefit-wise, they actually did a good job, so please bear with us. In addition to this change, many good things are coming over time. You are the reason OL exists and I am sorry you have to go through this. Think of it like birth pangs... (All right, all right, that's forcing it.  ) Michael

Posting in the Articles forum

All new articles submitted to the Articles forum are now going through a screening process. We are doing this for three reasons:

1. Sometimes items are submitted that really belong in another forum.

2. As OL grows, we found we needed to have a place to present more polished work.

3. The articles in the Articles forum appear on the new front page.

There are no restrictions on anything else other than our posting guidelines. You can make posts to article threads in the Articles forum (and everywhere elsewhere), and open new threads everywhere but the Articles forum.

I should have mentioned this before--there is no longer a screening process for the Articles forum.

The restriction used to be in place because OL had a portal page and the articles were featured there. We no longer have the portal.
