    Could use some help

    Hi Rom! Just open up the alerts and click on settings. https://www.cousincouples.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;area=notification;sa=alerts Then uncheck everything. That should get rid of them

    Everyone, I have made quite a few changes. I am forcing the website to use https://www. format. This is new. I also added an exit forum button. I removed the survey that was accessible on the main page. It is buggy and poses a risk to the rest of the website. I also tweaked the google search on the home page. It seems to search the forum better than the built-in search. Let me know if you see any problems.

    Very cool! Since I use a main template for ALL pages, it should be easy to implement. And yes sir, the non forum portion.

    Yeah it was about 80 percent historically, and still today in some places where it is odd to marry a stranger. When I get done with this, we will have to work out some cool questions.
  5. Our google rankings have gone way down. I thought with the new responsive templates, we would be in business. Anyway google has a new thing going, where you need to label the data on each page so it can better index it. I would like to do the main pages. What I am missing are images (required by google). They have to be jpg, png or gif and at least 160x90 pixels and at most 1920x1080 pixels. I don't have a lot of time to work on this project this week, but if someone can find us some images (I don't care exactly what kind as long as they are fairly uniform and look professional). You could even just redo the title box for all I care (they would need to be bigger). I'm sure some of you have access to some great clipart. If you want to help, holler at me. Take your time. It is also possible to program it to answer questions on the google devices (ie Google, how far away is the moon?) We could program it to answer a cousin question, if asked! I hope I am making sense. I have 10 things going on. It's finals for me. Class ends Friday and they are killing me with work! It's enough to drive a man to drink if it weren't seminary I'm attending I've given it all up! But I've never really been fond of sobriety. It's overrated. It just is.
  6. What LadyC said and other reasons we may not even understand. One reason was certainly the result of hemophilia in the royal family and the ensuing hysteria over cousin marriages. Also, Americans probably wanted to distance themselves from these royals whom they saw as "simpletons." Hey we haven't always had good relations with y'all across the pond. I think the royals, for so many reasons, made it less fashionable to marry a cousin. What we thought we knew about genetics steered us toward the cousin marriage prohibitions in the States. We knew squat about genetics. Texas was the last state to ban cousin marriages. This was a child abuse bill aimed at stopping religious cults from marrying each other incl underage cousins. I agree that that is child abuse and should have been stopped. The States have been at war with the Mormon church from the get-go. We even ran them out of the country with promises of annihilation if they returned.
  7. You two appear to be 1st cousins once removed. There is no reason in the world that you can be together when you both are of age. You can marry in SC with parental consent if you are 17 (you will need a notarized form from WV). How do I know these things? :kiss: I suggest you wait until you are both 18, or better yet, 20. I'm not sure why we are always in such a rush to get married -- like the world is coming to an end next week. In the mean time, finish school, set some educational goals and peruse them. Don't wait until you are 40ish to enter grad school like me.
  8. Is the main page looking good for everyone now? It is supposed to be responsive -- so it should look good on your smartphones and tablets. If you have an apple product, would you mind checking it out and giving me some feedback? The new version of SMF, the message board we are using, is supposed to be responsive as well. Therefore we should not need additional mobile themes that we have used in the past. I would like to use the original main page theme for non-mobile devices. So I may check on that shortly. I probably will not be doing any fine tuning to the message board until the new version is released. We are actually running a beta version which seems a lot more secure than the old version already. I haven't seen any successful spam posts in a long time.

    It may just be the quick reply thingee. It seems to be better in the regular editor. There is also (the last button) that lets you toggle between raw html and wysiwyg (sp)
  10. With my cousin and me, everything happened exactly the opposite of what you are describing I guess. We just kinda started to hang out more and more. This continued until one day I realized, "Oh! Shit! I really have a thing for my cousin." And so, we have been married for 20 some years now. At cc.com, we certainly don't encourage people to seek out a cousin to marry (that's nuts), but when there is that special chemistry, I say go for it. You pursue her just like any other hot momma Being cousins, you have the advantage of being able to hang out without the commitment of an official date. It sounds like this is what you are doing and it is driving you bonkers. It's time to remind her again of how you feel. Don't let her play games with you. Ask her out on a proper date and see how it goes. If she isn't interested then now is a good time to move on. It's just that simple.

  14. I changed a few setting, maybe it will work now. It looks like you have a 60 sec window to upload the file.
  15. I will check it out within a few days and let you know something. Thank you.
  16. I will be editing this post for future reference. It may be added to our info section at some point. I am often asked about Chinese kinship reckoning systems. Can I marry my "sister/cousin?" I've always thought it was very strange to consider a cousin a sister. My anthropology class is covering some of this stuff. One type of decent system is called monogenesis. They view the offspring to be wholly the result of the father. The mother is considered "soil" where the kid was able to come into fruition. The mother is given no credit in the lineage of the children. These kids are considered to be closer to their father's side of the family. This is one reason some cultures green light cousin marriages on one side of the family, while making it taboo to marry a cousin on the other side. Of course, biologically (generically) there is no difference at all. A cousin on either side of your family will be related to you in an identical way. I think they share 12.5 percent of genes in common. As for the Chinese, I have also heard that the reason for the cousin marriage taboo on the father's side may be due to the possibility of the brothers sharing one of the bother's wives. Or maybe wife swapping. I'm not sure if this was ever, in fact, a problem, or some kind of cultural taboo of the past. In sum, it could be possible for two cousins to be half-siblings and not even know it if this wife swapping was indeed a common practice in years past.
  17. Historically, both Muslims and Jews have had a first cousin preference in finding a mate. Marrying one's cousin is very normal in parts of the world. In fact, non cousins are in the minority when they marry! Atheists live and die by what little bit of science has been discovered up until this point. It's no surprise that they would take a stance against it. Oh course, not all of them hold that position. If you read our [iurl=http://"http://www.cousincouples.com/?page=religion"]page on Christianity[/iurl], you will get a better picture of what is going on.

    This version changed a lot of things and I recently changed servers. It could be my fault, or it could be a little transition bug from one version to another. I will post more if I can fix it. I will poke around on the server. Like Hawk suggested, just reupload the image in your profile, like you did originally. Sorry for the trouble!
  19. I wouldn't seek genetic counseling unless there is some special reason to do so. The NSOGC doesn't think it is necessary for cousins. If it would make you feel better, then there is no reason that you can't seek the advice of a GC. Don't worry about it being illegal. I doubt they turn you in. Oh, the Tx law is a black eye to us all.
  20. go with vanilla or cherry
  21. The NSOGC report stated that cousins should have no special tests because they are not in a special risk group for having a baby with a birth defect. Get your prenatal care and stop worrying.
  22. This website doesn't have a business model that results in profitability. It has never been my goal to gouge my users for personal gain. But tell that to our website hosting company or the domain name registration company. They don't care. They want their money. I generally like to pay for the services myself, but in the past have had to resort to "begging." I've been a full time student for the past 5+ years now. It takes a financial toll on families. To get around all of this begging, I have set up an optional little donation you can use to help us out. The prices are in experimental mode at the moment (Cheap!). The prices will only go up (and perhaps very soon). Your monies will go to paying the bills, and technical support of this website. I have personally spent over 20 hours last week working here. I work cheap but at this juncture of my life, it is not financially feasible to work for free despite the fact that this is my website and I love what I do and on and on. Anyway, once you donate, you become a Golden Member. You will receive access to a private and intimate board on our forum. Later, I will be adding a store that sells only cousin related stuff! It's going to be grand. Finally, I have contemplated making myself available via Skype or phone to help others with tough questions and life choices that deal with cousin relationships. I have no idea if there is a need for this, but it would be available only to the "Golden Members." So sign up today. The donation script is here, under your profile: http://www.cousincouples.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;area=subscriptions
