Forum Reboot 2.0 is complete!

Post by Spekkal on Sat Nov 07, 2015 10:53 pm

So if you've all noticed, the mods and admins are working together to kick-start the forum again to try to get it to thrive with activity. The forum has received a lot of complaints about being dead, inactive, all that jazz. So if we all work together, we can make this crazy pile of OCs an actual community! How great would that be? We'd never be bored and consistently refresh the forum ever again!

So, to give you an update on what we're doing, here's a list:

  • The chatbox may be getting moved to the bottom if most members prefer it
  • The username-colours have been redone and a higher restriction is on it
  • There will be a lot more threads being posted that members can participate in
  • Rules will be redone to be more clear
  • There may be a new skin for the future
  • There may also be an RP tournament in the works, similar to an event
  • Speaking of, we should probably start those up again, whoops
  • And other exciting things we haven't thought of yet!


EVERYTHING IS DONE!
AMAZING JOB, EVERYONE!

***SUPER DUPER SPECIAL ADMIN UPDATE 1/12/2015!***
Finally, the TRUE reboot of SRN is here! And we have a lot of changes! A few minor, a few major, but I hope you all enjoy all the work we've put into this, and I hope you all help make this wonderful little community grow! So ready for the list? Here we go!

  • Entirely new skin, created by our very own Uncanny-Illustrator! And thanks for all the feedback on the skin, guys! You've really helped it pop! Hope you like it!
  • The Ranks have been entirely redone too, with super-cool animations! Whoa!
  • The SRN Skype Group has new regulations - you must be active and have at least 30 posts! But if you're already there, then you're safe I guess.
  • Massive thanks to our new support staff, Dregan! He didn't really want the role but we forced the guy into it anyway. He's been redoing the rules to make them a lot clear and easier to understand! Give him a pat on the back!
  • A new system has been implemented on how username colours work! Check the thread out here, and see what you can apply for! Plus, the admins have special names, so now you know who's member of staff, and who isn't!
  • The TTT has officially started! Contestants, throw yourselves into your respective thread here! If you're not facing anyone, continue to chill in the Lounge to observe your opponents duke it out!
  • The Meet The Staff page has been updated with everything there is to know about your friendly neighbourhood dictators admins! Check it out!


And with that, I'm sorry to say, but this'll be the last Reboot post on this little changelog. The forum's fixed up, and the community is growing. Now let's all do our very best to keep it thriving!

Spekkal, out.
