The Purpose of this group is to post the various Volunteer tasks and support Volunteers.
Every volunteer should be a member of this Group
God has blessed us with many people coming forward and volunteering. If you are interested in volunteering go to Volunteer Opportunities and fill out the volunteer application form which will enter you into the system. When that is complete return here and select a task you would like to help on or you can post ideas that you think would be helpful as a suggested new task.
You were asked to create an account on the forum and to introduce yourself on forum section 7-Bible.org Volunteer tasks and community Discussion We will use this group to discuss tasks and the forum 7 in interact in a more peronal way and to help each other with problems that come up. For example: if you think that translation is your thing, what languages do you know that you could share and what articles do you think would be the best for your people.
We are still experimenting with the best way to assign tasks to our volunteers and collaborate with them. This week (9/13/09) we decided to use this group function for staff and volunteers to better facilitate the interaction and collaboration.
- Answer volunteer questions
- To suggest new tasks

Our site uses both drupal for bible.org and users and phpbb for the http://forum.bible.org
as most of you know you have to log on to each seperately. It would be good if we could have a single log on for those systems.. and at least intregrte the logon and some of the profile information as we have between users.bible.org and bible.org itself
if you would like to study this and possibly work on it let us know
here are some links of phpbb and Drupal integration. information
we need someone familar with php who can do system upgrades and the general sw support for our http://forum.bible.org
time needed - a few hrs /mth should be enough..
skils familarity with php and mysql..
willing to learn the phpbb software and help on a single sign on task mentioned above
our new users are confused when they have to sign on to the various sites
this is because they use diferent software programs
the forum is phpbb
the borg and users sites are drupal and
the ticket system is redmine..
we need to figure out how to allow a single sign on system between these..
do we dod LDAP or what?
add your comments and if you are technical do some homework on the software and sign up
