We're back and better than ever

As you can see we have had a lot of things happen in our down time. The forum has been upgraded and has a lot of new features. I will go over some of them here as I have time but for starters

  • We no longer have friends we have followers, that was something the host decided. You can ignore members which will hide their posts.
  • You can turn off your status updates now in your settings.
  • Now when you click a topic you will be taken to the first unread comment instead of the beginning,
  • The theme is darker but is also color changing. As the sun rises where you are the theme will get brighter and will dim as the day turns to night. That should help everyone lying in their bed at night surfing.
  • We will also be changing over the login protocol in a week or so. The new method will use your email instead of your username. Since usernames are public knowledge it will be safer for everyone to use emails since only you have that info. I will make an announcement about this as soon as I can.

I will post more as I learn more about the new system.

I hope you all enjoy the new forum.

Also a big shout out to my man Terabyte for his amazing work getting us up to date and creating some of the things we needed that were no longer available. Much appreciation buddy.

Looks like we may have lost some profile customizations along the way. I was hoping that would not happen and do apologize to y'all for that. Hopefully the improvements will outweigh the inconvenience.

Just confirmed this through a helpful member.

You will notice your birthday is present on your profile. That is only visible to you and staff. No one else has access to that info as we know that isn't something a lot of people want to share.

You will also notice in the upper menu bar we now have a community calendar. We will be using that for any upcoming events like contests or site maintenance.

Well if I can figure out how to remove the birthdays from it I will set it back up.

I have removed the chatbox from the front page. Now to access it you can find a menu button on the top menu bar. Much cleaner looking this way.

For those wishing to be anon the new system works differently. To adjust this setting you will need to do the following:

  • Log in
  • Use the drop down menu from your username
  • Select Account Settings
  • On the left side menu select Security and Privacy
  • Select Hide My Online Status
  • It will auto save and will remain active until you change it.

For those that would like to add security to their profile I suggest the following:

  • From your username drop down menu select Manage Followers
  • Select Privacy Settings
  • Choose one of the following

Ok I have finally found a way to block guests from viewing profiles to add to security.

I have also removed guests ability to see the online user list and status updates since sometimes people may overshare personal things there.

Good evening y'all,

I am thinking of adding member created Clubs as an addition to the forum.

According to the host description:

  • Clubs are areas created by members and may be allowed to contain Forums, Gallery Categories and Calendars.
  • Club Owners can make their Clubs public or require members to join before they can see and participate in them. 
  • Club Owners can also make other members co-leaders of the club or moderators. 

I am starting a poll to see what everyone thinks.

Please be sure and cast your vote.
