Site Changes!

Postby Shuggy » Tue Sep 07, 2010 7:59 pm

Work on the site is going to start picking up speed so, to make sure your heads aren't spinning, changes made by Admins will be announced here. Obviously some will be more obvious than others! :mrgreen:

First round of changes:

The 'Tolkien' sub-forum in both 'Movies' and 'Books' has been merged with the relevant 'Fantasy' sub-forums.

'Writing' is now 'Creative Arts', and 'Art' has been made a sub-forum.

'Food' is gone, and all posts have been moved to 'General Chat'.

'Current Affairs' has been broken down into several sub-forums, hopefully making it a lot less overwhelming a subject!

We now have a new theme thanks to Candy and a banner thanks to Emclelland!

The front page has also been shuffled a bit, and a News Articles forum has been added, that will post directly to the front page.

Lovin' the new banner! It looks great!
Staring at the blank page before you, open up the dirty window, let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find. Today is where your book begins, the rest is still UNWRITTEN...

We've got a story archive now, it's linked on the top menu. It's only got one story in it... so far. I look forward to seeing more content in there.

I have merged all the questions and problems regarding the Banner into here: http://rememberthebalrog.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=4 in order to keep this thread for notifying people of changes that have been made.

So, we now have a Membership Agreement! Please read it at your convenience, but I would suggest the content would come as no shock to any intelligent adult with a grain of common sense :D ! It's in the 'Welcome' Forum.

By the way; ANY breach of Rule 10 will result in SEVERE sanctions against the offender.

I have added a 'Horror' sub-forum to 'Books'. I noticed a while ago that there was an interest...

Yay! I love horror, and vampires in particular. Taking that break now. Still got more tweakin' to do with the banner.

For some reason, clicking on the "unread" link for this thread just gave me the above post, which makes no sense at all without the prior (and unread to me) post :lol:

Not groundbreaking news, but I thought I'd share :P

And while I'm here, is the number of posts per page working for people? I'm still stuck in the old RB habit of having 20 posts per page instead of 10. 10 seems very short to me...

20 seems good to me.

Ok does anyone use the "unanswered posts" link? Or the "View active topics"? There just seems like too many options up there :lol:

I don't use the first one, but I do like "view new posts" very much. Can't say I've used the "view active topics" yet - probably because I might already be there helping to make them that way :).
