Now it's possible to post events that are not linked to posts. Just untick the box!
My actions are my only true belongings.
I cannot escape the consequences of my actions.
My actions are the ground on which I stand.

To the Admin/Mods,

Having updated the 2010 calendar with liturgical events from the Chinese Mahayana, Thai Theravada & Jodo Shinshu for the year, there was a technical glitch for the month of July where the event for the 30th: 'Avalokitesvara's Enlightenment' appeared without the 't' so it became '...Enlightenmen' and tried a second time but became double posting instead. Seeking the help of the Admin/Mods to delete one duplicate away. Many thanks.

There should be a red asterisk next to the events you are allowed to edit. If you click that, you'll get options for editing the event.

It would be good if there were more interesting / topical threads.  But somebody needs to start them. :wink1:

I don't know if it's possible or even desirable, its just a thought.
What about the facility to look up the meaning of a Buddhist
related word, with links, etc. A search box type thing.
It would be most useful for newcomers to Buddhism.
Good idea or not?

I think this is an AWESOME idea and a HUGE project of connecting key words to glossaries and definitions and links. 

If you would like to start it, or if a group of people are interested in this, we have lots of folks with lots of links to good sites and lots of knowledge.  I bet we could wrangle up a few people to contribute to the glossary project! 

We can compile the resources and build a search page maybe...?
