HOW IT WORKS
THE SOCIAL TIMELINE is open to the public in ‘read only’ mode, allowing everyone to follow.
*INDIVIDUAL MEMBERS (Associate Editors) in good standing have comment privileges on the timeline and ‘read only’ access to all active and archived editing forums.
Associate Editors begin the process of editing the subject text by considering punctuation, sentence structure, word meanings, culture of the day, figures of speech, archaeological evidences etc. on the timeline, and by voting in editing polls.
**STUDY LEADER MEMBERS in good standing have comment privileges on the timeline and their own private group on the social site where they may meet with members for editing and doctrinal discussions off of the timeline. (doctrinal studies are not allowed on the timeline).
Study Leaders enjoy Content Editor status.
CONTENT EDITORS (upgrade for individual members) work in special forums for deeper consideration of a subject that has not been exhausted on the timeline, and are responsible for developing a revised text reflecting the study results for review by the Editing Board.
EDITING BOARD elected from among Study Leaders reviews and recommends the new text for uploading, or sends it back to the Content Editors for further work.
MANAGING EDITOR Approves the text for upload, or places it on the agenda for review at the next Board meeting.
*All competent English speaking persons of good will that will adhere to a few common sense rules are welcome as members, regardless of belief.
**Study Leaders are welcomed from Churches, Messianic Assemblies, Sunday and Sabbath schools, Christian schools, Homeschoolers and other established online, or offline Bible study groups that worship the Creator God of the Bible, acknowledges that the Christ came in the flesh and that it is through Christ’s sacrifice and the infilling of the Holy Spirit that we receive forgiveness of our sins and eternal life.
FIRST EDIT involves the changing of select words, sentence structure and grammar, bringing the text into an abridged, thought for thought modern English edition that will be used as the source document during the initial studies of the formal editing project
NOTE: Please excuse our dust. Our websites are not quite ready for prime time yet, but we’re working on it. They are fully functional, however, and we are currently running a final trial of the sites and procedures by doing some first edit work while we continue development.
