10-30-2005, 01:33 PM
In the coming weeks, we want to begin an online discussion about the book Jesus and Nonviolence: A Third Way by Walter Wink. To get the new Soulforce Community Forums rolling, we have a special promotion.
The first 25 people who post will receive the book, Jesus and Nonviolence, free!
To receive your free book, you will need to:
Register on the Soulforce Forums
Upload an avatar (small picture to identify yourself in the forums)
Post an introduction in the "Hello My Name Is..." forum
If you are new to forums, you can find instructions here (http://www.soulforce.org/forums/showthread.php?p=13#post13).
Rules: Soulforce Staff and Soulforce Local Group Leaders are ineligible for this promotion. You must upload an avatar and your introduction must be at least 100 words. Please do not post your mailing address in your introduction. The first 25 people who qualify will receive an email requesting the shipping information for your free book.

Since some folks are completely new to Forums, I will provide detailed instructions on how to register, upload an avatar, and post an introduction in the Hello My Name Is... forum.
Forums are essentially a message board where members can post messages and also reply to other people's messages. Anyone can read the messages, but you have to be a member to post a new message or reply to someone's previous message. Becoming a member is simple, all you have to do is register.
Click here to register on the Soulforce Community Forums (http://www.soulforce.org/forums/register.php)
When you register, you have to provide a valid email address. A confirmation email will automatically be sent asking you to click a special link in the email that will confirm your registration. (This is done in order to make sure the person registering actually owns the email account they provided and is not using someone else's.)
Now that you have registered, you are free to post public messages in the forums and also send private messages to other members.
An avatar is a small picture, usually a face shot, that is used to help people identify you in the forums. You do not have to have an avatar to use the forums, but having one provides a nice way for folks to recognize you. Most users use a picture of themselves as an avatar, but some people like to use cartoon characters or art or whatever.
You can upload an avatar by going to your account. You can get there by clicking User CP at the top of the page or you can just click the link I'll provide for you here:
Upload an Avatar (http://www.soulforce.org/forums/profile.php?do=editavatar)
For this promotion, we're giving away a free book to the first 25 people who register, upload an avatar, and post an introduction in the Hello My Name Is... forum. To do that you will need to go to the Hello My Name Is... forum. Here is the link:
Hello My Name Is... (http://www.soulforce.org/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=2)
There you will need to click the button marked New Thread. It looks like this:
You can then use the editor to type your introduction.
Hope that helps! And I hope you can now join in on the fun! :)

Yikes! I just realized the links I provided above were incorrect. Those have been fixed now. Congrats to the first four people who qualified for the free book despite the links being initially wrong.
There are still 21 more books to give away!

The following members will receive from Soulforce a free copy of Walter Wink's book, Jesus and Nonviolence: A Third Way. These should ship out this week.

For others that qualified not appearing on this list: If I sent you a private message but you never got back with me, you can still claim your free book up until Nov. 11th.
Look for discussions of Jesus and Nonviolence to show up in the Main Forum sometime next week. For those who didn't win a free book and would like to participate, you can pick up a copy at your local bookstore or at this link at amazon.com (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0800636090/soulforce-20).
