M, so far, the new FAQ is looking wonderful! Please keep it up!

If I may communicate something about a particular section - while I do realize that this is just a draft, I noticed when I read "What is Jediism", I found myself having a bit of an objection over the choice of wording, particularly of dividing Jediism up into sides, such as "those who find it religious" and those who call themselves "realists", and then simply listing out some characteristics that when reading it, I feel, don't really dig down enough into a bigger matter (or big picture) of what I've always felt Jediism is.

When I read it, I was actually inspired to form a version of my own (which I ended up posting in another thread), that I don't expect to simply be adopted, but I hope can give an example of what I feel may encompass a deeper and more meaningful part of what matters about being a Jedi.

Proteus wrote: Jediism is known as a religious philosophy (or just philosophy if you'd like), concerned with the fundamental nature of humankind and existence, the connection of all things, a metaphysical presence, which we choose to call The Force. A Jedi is one who resonates with the realization of this universal connection, and in turn, practices a way of life that acknowledges it.


I hope this can help with any ideas for better improving what I'm sure can be agreed is a rather important section of this article! :)

It seems that I know that I know.
What I would like to see is the 'I' that knows me when I know that I know that I know.

It has been reported, that some of the links in the library apparently had some viruses and/or malware in them. The Library has been temporarily taken offline while this is looked into. Please remember to keep all your software updated, antivirus installed and computer scanned.

I have everything that was in the library downloaded and saved on my PC at home if anyone needs anything during the interim. So they can contact me and I'll get it to them.

The FAQ update is completed but not yet live. There are a few minor things which need sorting but it should replace the current FAQ sometime next week.

The library is back up but the problem hasn't yet been sorted so be careful.

The FaQ update has gone live.

Please PM me if there's something which needs looking at.

Question on that... what constitutes "a legitimate reason"? For example I might feel not wanting to was a legitimate enough reason...
