SITE UPDATES Welcome Back!

Discussion in 'ANNOUNCEMENTS' started by Astaroth, Jun 16, 2018.

  1. Site maintenance was successfully completed! Thank you for your patience during the downtime.

    What's new?


    1. The forums have been slightly reorganized and reworked. Most notably:

    - The Testing Chambers is now The Coding Lab. HELLZ YEAH, CODING HEAVEN.

    - There is a brand new ROLEPLAY EXTRAS forum (and corresponding ones for Redstar/Bluestar areas). These sections let you house all your million and one bonus threads for your active RPs without fear of them being archived!

    As a tradeoff/downside, this does mean only one Signup/Out of Character thread per roleplay in Group RP Signups. But hey, you keep your other threads forever. (Or at least until you go inactive/banned/deleted).

    - Developing Characters and Building Worlds have been condensed into the Refining Writing and Roleplay Skillbuilding sections. Inspiring Muses is now the go-to for all creative prompts!

    - A few other small tweaks for ease of understanding/navigation.

    2. A BOATLOAD OF NEW PREFIXES.

    All the forum prefixes have been completely reviewed and re-geared. Unused ones were removed, names were tweaked for ease of understanding, and a bunch of new ones were added (and some colors and other things on the back-end fixed).

    3. Informational stickies for EVERY FORUM SECTION containing all the archival rules, helpful links, and DEFINITIONS FOR EVERY PREFIX. (Small tweaks may be made to these if we realize something was missed.)

    4. NEW RULES about OOC content. You now get to decide your own rules about OOC posts in your own roleplays! No more mods fussing at you because your whole first page in your In Character thread is OOC info, and no-one telling you that you can't post OOC in your private one-on-ones. IT'S ALL YOU GUYS.


    Other updates may occur over the next day or two but should be largely unnoticeable. :]

  3. Some nice, necessary changes, even if they're not major. I had noticed there were prefixes just kind of sitting around before.

  10. A VITAL JOB, TAKING CARE OF THE POOR DISTRESSED COMMUNITY WHILE THEY WAITED FOR THE SITE TO COME BACK UP

    I don't recall any fires, but she did put up a bunch of lewd pictures in the kitchen after I harassed her about not being mean enough to people.

  13. I'm sure they will also be excited about no longer having to worry about OoC in IC no more. I'm personally very excited about the Extras forum.
