Members will actually HELP EDIT THE BIBLE!
HOW WILL THAT WORK?
THE SOCIAL TIMELINE is open to the public in ‘read only’ mode, allowing everyone to follow.
There are TWO TYPES OF MEMBERSHIPS as ASSOCIATE EDITORS
1. INDIVIDUAL MEMBERS*
Have commenting privileges on the timeline, where they can chat with other members and begin the process of editing the subject text by discussing punctuation, sentence structure, word meanings, culture of the day, figures of speech, archaeological evidences, etc.
FREE – OPTIONAL
Individual Members may join the forum of a Study Leader whose doctrinal beliefs match their own for editing and doctrinal discussions. (doctrinal studies are not allowed on the timeline)
2. STUDY LEADER MEMBERS**
have comment privileges on the timeline, ‘read only’ access to all archived editing forums and commenting privileges in all active study forums.
Study Leaders in good standing each have a private forum on the site where they can meet with their members for editing and doctrinal discussions off of the timeline.
Study Leaders join in editing discussions on the timeline, and/or with their members in their own private forum, while observing the work of the Content Editors and asking questions to satisfy those from their study. Study leaders then poll their members on editing questions posed by the Content Editors and ‘vote’ their member’s conclusion.
CONTENT EDITORS are elected from among Study Leader members by the full membership. They are responsible for supplemental studies in special forums when necessary and for condensing conclusions into a suitable text for review by the Editing Board,
EDITING BOARD is elected from among Content Editors by the full Study Leader membership.
We’re not quite ready for prime time yet, but our site is secure and functional. We will begin our ‘First Edit’ on December the 7th. Come join us @ CSMSocial.org as a founding member.***
