Looking for a meetup group in your area?  Browse our sub-community groups or start your own.  Then search for members in your area to friend and invite to local meetups, hangouts and more.
  • Self Moderating Community
Don't like the direction your blog or forum post turned?  You can close forum threads you begin, or moderate comments on your Blog.  We also entrust community members to respect each other and to resolve differences as mature adults as much as possible, and only engage in forum moderation in extraneous cases as reported by community members to the admin team and failure of a member to comply with house rules.

Thanks Micah. This sight is great.
How do I add my picture to the site?
Go to the Edit Profile settings either from the "My Profile" menu at the top (hover mouse and then click "Edit Profile", or by clicking Settings near the top right. Then you can change your profile picture and other information if desired.
Wwell I change my profile but still can not change the scenery to my picture
You need to click "Choose File" and then browse to a new picture. Be sure to click "Save" at the very bottom when complete.
Thank you for working so hard to put this website together. If your intent is truly good, I hope you reach your desired outcome. I look forward to interacting with you.
You're welcome Maiden! Glad to have you aboard. Enjoy the site and community.
Why do I sometimes hear a chirping noise while signed into LAM?

This chirping, beeping or whistling sound (depending on how you would describe it) is coming from the chat room and occurs anytime a new post is submitted. You can pull up the chat window from the bottom of any page (click on "Life After Mormonism Chat | # Online"). You are automatically signed into chat upon logging into or registering on LAM. You can pull up the chat application from the bottom of any page or by going clicking "Chat" on the menu bar. From the chat application, you can participate in the public chat, or invite other members to a private chat. You can also mute(speaker icon) or "Go Offline"(green dot/peep icon) from chat here to silence the "chirp". If you sign out of chat, you will remain signed into LAM but will no longer be able to participate or view the chat discussion. Note: If you don't hear the chirp when others post in the chat room, be sure that your sound is enabled, and that your volume is adjusted appropriately.
Any discussion you start or reply to is added to "Your Discussions" under your profile, but there doesn't appear to be a "Favorites" option on discussions as there is for movies and photos.
Micah, I'm having trouble getting into the chat room.  Can you help?  I've read the instructions, and my lithium controlled brain isn't following.
You can enter chat from various locations: "Chat" on the menu bar under the header/logo, "Chat" from the Easy Nav Links near the top right of any page, or from the Chat pull-up bar at the bottom of every page (click "Life After Mormonism Chat | # Online"), or just click this link: http://www.lifeaftermormonism.net/chat.  If you still can't see the chat application after any of the above attempts, you likely need to install the Adobe Flash plugin which can be done from this link: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
My Mac doesn't have the  chat pull up bar, and nothing changed since installing the Adobe Flash whatever you gave me.  Don't worry anymore about it.  I don't need to be chatting anyhow.
