Although i am new. I am a bit confused by the layout (organization) of the forum. Don't know exactly where to post and stuff.
I can give suggestions if that is ok, i done this in the past and worked pretty well. Forums got better.

Welcome!

The forum subsections themselves do have descriptions attached to them which describe concisely what each is for. There are also stickies in each which contain information people have felt is useful enough to stick around (primarily tutorials).

Do you have specific questions (for instance, I would like to post a question about astral couches, or I want to tell people my cat is an alien, etc)?

Suggestions are of course welcome, but I would just like a better idea of your problem, if that is alright!

Thanks for being open mind!

Well, the problem are the descriptions. After i entered the sections i saw that there were random topics in sections that probably don't belong there and it made it more confusing.
But maybe i need some better understanding about the sections, either this or some topics need to get moved to their proper place so it won't cause confusion for new members.

1. What is the difference the sections: "Out of Body Experiences!'' and: "Astral Projection Experiences!"?  Since it seems that there are both focused on experiences while you are not in your physical body.

That's how Adrian (the owner of the site) originally set up the site.
We keep it mostly for historical purposes.  I consider them the same forum... feel free to use them as such.  Smiley

Yeah, that is poorly worded, now that I look at it.

The "Out of body experiences" section is for general discussion about the subject itself. The "Astral projection experiences" section is actually about recounting specific experiences. You can get this clarification if you compare the topic descriptions attached to each. The confusing thing is that the word "experience" is used in two different senses in each heading: in the first case, it is used as part of a common three-word construction to describe the entire field. It is unfortunately the same word used in the section heading just below, where the construction is merely two words ("Astral projection"), that are used as an adjective phrase to modify "experiences", where the section is specifically about experiences themselves.

It seems like an arcane distinction now that I look closely at it, I agree. Eventually everyone seems to get it, but you are right in that it could be better phrased. Maybe Adrian can change it, but he might not consider it high priority  rolleyes
