FAIR Message Board
As FAIR continues to grow and evolve, we make changes to better meet our goals. In this regard, a major change was made on December 2, 2006, to divest ourselves of the FAIR Message Board, turning their operation over to one of the current moderators. The message board will continue with a new name of Mormon Apologetic & Discussion Board. The URL will be http://www.MormonApologetics.org.
FAIR was born from LDS individuals posting on Internet message boards, so this is a big step for us. But we believe this change will remove the confusion from people’s minds about whether or not FAIR endorses the posts on the message boards, allow more freedom for the posters, and allow FAIR to focus our resources. Message boards are a valuable discussion medium, but the format does not universally appeal to people who come to FAIR looking for answers. FAIR will, in turn, devote our scarce resources to enhancing the FAIR wiki (http://en.fairmormon.org) and providing more international articles.
At this point all decisions and management have been given over to the new Mormon Apologetic & Discussion Board management team. In the very near future the old URL for the message boards (http://www.fairboards.org) will be retired, so you will want to update your bookmarks for the new URL, noted above. FAIR will maintain a hands-off policy and does not endorse the actions nor the posts on this new message board. Those who currently post on the FAIR message boards won’t need to do anything differently, other than create a bookmark on their computer to the new URL. For a short time we will continue to have a pointer from the FAIR Web site, but after a reasonable amount of time has passed, we will be removing the link.
