Thanks. Appreciate it. :) I do have those though. I currently have almost 300 modules for The Word, but I'm always looking for more. :)

Thanks again.

I think we need a page for user modules on The Word's website. :)

At least, since everybody seems to be struggling for them. :)

But I put a lot of time and effort into it and so, I have a good number of them now. :)

I actually spoke to Costas about it. He is looking for the best alternative. The problem is when someone makes a module that the content is protected by a copyright and they do not have the permission to use it. I offered to use Sword of the Spirit as the "Official" 3rd party module repository but my site is Bible study related and contains some controversial doctrinal teaching. Not that it is not accepted but not accepted by all. I don't think he wants to associate "The Word" with any specific doctrine. That would keep The Word mainstream and eliminate prejudice of denominational and non-denominational users whose views tend do differ.

That being said I do not like the 4 shared site or any like them. They are confusing to say the least not to mention you could spend a lifetime searching and downloading modules. As well as the fact they are designed specifically to generate income for someone. If you "upgrade to the better system" whomever set up the account gets a "kickback" of the money you spent. In other words the main purpose is to generate money for someone and nobody knows who. It could be that some joker set it up specifically for that purpose.

That is why I decided to make downloads available on my site. I had a computer crash and lost all I had. I literally spent the day at 4 shared... click, click, wait, click, wait...

At my site any register user can upload to shre their modules. There are no popups, no advertising gimicks, and no waiting. Best of all you can also maintain your own modules.

You need to protect yourself against that sort of thing! Please send me a private message and I will tell you exactly how to do that properly. I have been a (real) tech for almost 30 years and I would be more than happy to get you set up! And almost all of it will be free software! And with all due respect, please don't tell me that you are set up, or you wouldn't have had the crash (unless it was hardware related). :)

Thank you for your kind offer, but I don't have a domain name. If that changes, I'll let you know. Thanks again. :)

Okay. I don't know what name it was, but that's fine. No problem. Whatever you need to do to keep this forum running smoothly is fine with me. :)

I'm pretending that my opinion matters, okay? <lol> :)

please do not use this sticky for discussions

It is supposed to be a place where you can find shared modules easily. Please respect that and discuss on other places on the forum intended for these purposes.

Thanks for helping to make this forum attractive for all people, :lol:

kind regards,
Richard

Forgive my departure into unnecessary levity, friend. My humblest apologies!

Just where do we have a spot for that on the forum again? :lol:
