OK, I had my meeting with my SGI-USA Central Territory leader. He has confirmed with me SGI's definite interest in sponsoring and making SGIBuddhism.ning.com officially an affiliate of SGI.
This all new territory for SGI themselves and in the coming weeks they'll be working closely with me, and sometime in the near future after some paperwork is approved, hope to have a direct 'link' of our SGIBuddhism.ning.com site to the SGI-USA and Soka Gakkai websites itself.
So no more declarations on our site that it is NOT an official 'site' of the SGI, and you can tell your members & leaders that this IS an SGI site itself.
I didn't think this would happen so soon but it was my main goal when i (after I joined Chris Tinney's social network group which he created 3-4 yrs ago) first became its unofficial moderator to protect the site from anti-SGI members and make it an oasis safe for both members & their friends & family alike. So mission accomplished!...so far...eagerly looking forward to new developments as word of this site get around and our 7,000 plus members will be joined by so many more in the far & distant future.
Good morning, Kevin. How are the doggies? Please go to my site and take a look at Bill. He is a very smart, attentive dog. I had trained him as a puppy to go to the nursing homes with me while working. The residents used to put on the schedule who was going to "baby sit" when I came to work....cute, cute, cute....
