  1. Well, I used the lightening icon and got the connecting message. But when I go to the forum I still cannot post a reply. I assume I do not need to change anything in settings. So why does the reply button not post anything? Out of all the fora I use this is the only one that is a real problem. None of the others need Photon. If the lightening icon is the last sequence of actions then it is odd I still cannot post a reply. I assume it has to be activated through the sequences every time I visit the forum if the intention is to post a reply and not jut read. Perhaps I have not followed all the steps but if I am getting the connecting message what happens after that?
  2. OK I have installed Photon on iPad as suggested. Do I change the browser from Safari? I turned on the lightening flash on Photon page but I still cannot post a reply on the forum. I must be doing something wrong. Any suggestions please?
  3. soltaran (27/04/2013)Back on the PC (mine) - the iPad is my wife's.USE THE PHOTON BROWSER AND TURN ON FLASH!!! It's really that simple!Safari doesn't work as it doesn't appear to support flash.Thanks for that! I will have to try it. This is the only forum that I have a problem with all the time (lots of annoying quirks) and I cannot be the only one that gets frustrated with it. Amazed it does not support Safari on mobile devices and new technology. I wonder how up to date the software is that is being used. Every other fora I use support Safari on my iPad so why it is necessary to buy and install Photon does not make sense to me. As more people begin to use other devices than a pc perhaps the forum will become more user friendly.
  4. Help! Has anyone figured out yet how to post a reply to a message on this forum when using an iPad ? At this moment I can read messages and compose a reply but the problem is I cannot 'Post' the reply because the 'Post' button does not work! This is a real problem. I am having to switch to my pc and use that to send a reply. There must be a way to resolve this because the iPad works for posting replies on other fora. Any advice appreciated to resolve this. Also I have not yet tried my iPhone for accessing the forum although it seems this could also present a problem in due course. Others may have had more luck.
  5. The subject of the Armorial bearings in Freemasonry is one that, has not received a lot of attention. Some time after 1717, when the original Grand Lodge of England was organised, it selected as the basis for its arms those of the Masons' Company. The Coat of Arms of the Worshipful Company of Masons of London appears among the heraldic illuminations of several of the old manuscript constitutions or "Old Charges". The Masons' Company was one of the early and important guilds of England, and had arms granted by the Crown in 1472 on the recommendation of the Court of Heralds to the Company of Masons of London that was founded probably around 1200. They adopted the motto "God is our Guide". - http://freemasonry.bcy.ca/history/masonic_mottoes.htmlThe Grand Lodge of Ireland motto - "'Fiat Lux Et Facta Est Lux"- "Let There Be Light And There Was Light".The Grand Lodge of Scotland motto - "In the Lord is all our Trust". The United Grand Lodge of England motto - "Audi, Vide, Tace" is abbreviated from "Audi, vide, tace, si vis vivere in pace" - "Hear, see, be silent, if you would live in peace."In 1918, arising out of the need of the UGLE to prepare a new Seal, the matter of armorial bearing came under investigation. It was then decided to petition the Crown that the Arms, Crest and Supporters so long in use might be regularised, with the addition of a ‘Bordure’ indicative of the Arms of England to mark the long association with the Institution of King Edward VII and many other members of the Royal House. The request was acceded to and Letters Patent, dated 9 July 1919, were granted. Under this Grant the use of the combined Arms of the two former Grand Lodges, with the addition of a ‘Bordure’ charged with eight lions ‘passant’, was authorised, together with Crest, Supporters and Motto as previously in use. - http://freemasonry.london.museum/os/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/The-Arms-of-the-United-Grand-Lodge-of-England.pdf

  8. The King Edward VII Preceptory of Improvement was established in 1906 and still meet under the authority and licence of the Most Eminent and Supreme Grand Master.

Knights of all Grades are welcome to meetings and it particularly encourage Preceptors and Marshals to attend and reap the benefits of all this Preceptory of Improvement can offer, ultimately even taking the examination to be an 'Instructing Preceptor'. Meetings of the Preceptory of Improvement are held at Mark Masons' Hall, 86 St. James's Street, London SW1 at 6.00 pm.

  9. The Order of the Secret Monitor, or Brotherhood of David and Jonathan in the British Isles and its Districts and Conclaves Overseas. The Premier Conclave of Improvement offers all Brethren of the Order the opportunity to practise ceremonies in a friendly and encouraging environment.

  11. SG-1 (14/03/2013)Sentience (13/03/2013)He's only a FC according to his post footer so if like my Lodge, we don't give ritual books out until you've completed all 3 degrees. Having said that, it is freely available on an internet search.Dead right Sir ;)I'm struggling to find it, could you post a link please?I'm not sure that would be appropriate on an open forum. Perhaps someone can pm it to you instead.
  12. If anyone wants to research recognised and non-recognised GLs of the world then this is a useful paper back reference book that contains details of various individual Lodges (recognised and non-recognised) that one can determine worldwide information on overseas Masonic location and status - The "Pantagraph" List of Lodges - Masonic, published each year, containing the names of many Grand Lodges in the world and the lodges chartered by each. - http://www.pantagraphprinting.com/ESW/Files/2012_LoL_Sample_Pages.pdf
  13. Following on from two fantastically successful Awareness Evenings last year, which saw three London Mark Lodges increase their membership, the London Province of Mark Master Masons are setting out again this year with a similar programme and the first of those evenings takes place on 29th April at Mark Masons’ Hall, hosted by Friendship From Service and Semper Fidelis Lodges where both a Mark Lodge and a Royal Ark Mariner Lodge will be open for inspection by non-Mark Master Masons.- http://www.markprovinceoflondon.com/
  14. Trismegistos (11/03/2013)The general principle of "one country, one GL" sometimes makes it impossible, I'm given to understand.You are refering to the DETJ (Doctrine of Exclusive Territorial Jurisdiction). Read the complete information in this link - http://www.freemasons-freemasonry.com/phpnews/show_news.php?uid=84Excerpt:- "For historical and practical reasons, the Home Grand Lodges and others could not regard exclusive territorial jurisdiction as a basic principle for recognition. For more than 250 years the Home Grand Lodges have shared territory all round the world and continue to do so today. Indeed, in some areas we share territory with a local Grand Lodge formed since the Home Grand Lodges introduced Freemasonry into their territory. In the United States – where exclusive territorial jurisdiction was a principle for regularity – they have had to vary their views, as in many States the State Grand Lodge now shares its territory with a Prince Hall Grand Lodge, as the Home Grand Lodges do in the Bahamas, Caribbean and West Indies."
  15. For some comparison here is an excerpt from a Speech by a very well known eminent Mason who hails from the USA:"Regularity in Freemasonry has been accompanied by irregularity since close to its inception. There have been, and are Regular Grand Lodges in origin that became irregular by practice. There have been, and are Grand Lodges that comply with some of the requirements for regularity, but not all. And, there exists Grand Lodges that had never been regular in either origin or practice. Masonic leaders have dealt with these issues effectively for almost 300 years. ....... Fraternal relations between Grand Lodges is not a right, it is a privilege. Each grand lodge is free to choose, but if that choice contributes to disunity, then Regular Freemasonry has the responsibility to attempt reunification. Only through unity, can there be unity. The future of the Craft is now in our hands. Where it goes in this millennium is up to us. For the sake of the world, let us not fail." - http://www.aasrschenectady.org/mmt_jackson_regularity.html
