What major players did we lose upon converting to PF3? What leaders and outstanding scholars did not reestablish their PF memberships?

i don't see why changing the look of PF would deter others from posting as it is the same web address...

Where is the old PF?
I stumbled upon this link;

http://216.239.51.100/search?q=cache...hl=en&ie=UTF-8

[edit]
I guess google hangs onto some of it.

Difficult to make that link above work. I found my answer;

Google takes a snapshot of each page examined as it crawls the web and caches these as a back-up in case the original page is unavailable. If you click on the "Cached" link, you will see the web page as it looked when we indexed it. The cached content is the content Google uses to judge whether this page is a relevant match for your query.

When the cached page is displayed, it will have a header at the top which serves as a reminder that this is not necessarily the most recent version of the page. Terms that match your query are highlighted on the cached version to make it easier for you to see why your page is relevant.

The "Cached" link will be missing for sites that have not been indexed, as well as for sites whose owners have requested we not cache their content.

Wow... There is Zero arguing in favour of the Bible, futurist arguing (vaguely) against it... And yet Zero has over 5000 posts, putting this cache as pretty recent.

Wait, is this a parallel universe or something?

Hey you know what's fun? Research your current name and old name on google. I have to check and see if the links from my old name still work now, I doubt they do.

I gained an understanding that he was/is a True Believer. What in particular might be believed at any given time is secondary.

hehe, that was me! That was me!!

Futurist was from Malaysia I think. He has a website out there...but since we don't have his profile anymore I guess, it may be hard to find. (do a search for futurist, you never know...)

Anyway, yeah, he started off questioning Christianity a lot, and over time started to avidly defend it. The transition was scary, and his arguments for it were terrible.

I do recall a great post where he had something to do with claiming how my name was sacriligious, and so I should be banned.. Or maybe that was..who was that other guy...the one with the powers of light 'theory'?
Ohhh..he was the real classic... Where did he go? (Someone give me his name.)
