I am sure that you have already anticipated this day, but I am seeing signs that it has arrived: Inward Quest has reached Critical Mass. By this, I mean that questions are being answered and posted so fast and so numerously that your present page design is becoming obsolete.
When another fifty or so people join Inward Quest, it will be almost impossible to follow one thread or another as things stand- the question you asked yesterday is already on page two and nobody is going to see it. This will make it that much harder for new people to get points. No matter what anybody claims, the points do matter, especially to new people.
Have you thought of this already? Have you thought of a way to cope- perhaps a tabbed style for access to questions, tabbed by time of post or subject or both...?
For the first time, I had to look on Page Two for a question I wanted to address, and I have never had to do that before. Not that it was really onerous for me to do this, but to someone new, it might prove too confusing or frustrating to deal with.
I was wondering of you had thought of this, and if you have plans to expand the website yet again. I know of other spiritual websites which have grown as you have that post by threads and have categories. This might work well for IQ, especially as we have distinct areas of interest growing here. It also might be a good way to deal with the growing tide of comments, which are really hard to read if you are as blind as me! :)
I also would like to officially be considered for moderating- I know I can do that now, but I am a good writer and am feeling that it is time to perhaps move on to something else within your "family".
My love to you all behind the scenes,

Thank you for the suggestions. As of today, we have implemented "infinite scrolling" (one long ever-updating page) on the Inward Quest main questions page - it has been planned for a long time - so the situation you are referring to will not recur.
The website format and structure will remain as it is into the future. We have done much development work behind-the-scenes over the past few months to ensure the site can easily handle many times more traffic than we currently receive.
Regarding being unable to read the comments, I suggest you increase the Zoom level on your web browser to make the site text larger. Thank you for offering to help as an official moderator. However we do not require more moderators at this time.
