Changes - Updates and More - 10/7/08

Post by Twame on Tue Oct 07, 2008 7:22 pm

Welcome to the new forum! Here are some of the many changes that will make this forum even better then before.

New Admins


Well, I won't always be able to be on, so I decided to appoint two new admins. I'm happy to welcome xSwiftxClawx and Secht as co-admins of the forums! I've known them for a long time, and trust them to be very good admins. They say two heads are better then one, so with three heads just imagine what we can do.


New Mods


As some of our previous mods will no longer be modding, we'll have some open spots in our moderating staff. Just like previous times, all discussion will be between staff, and please do not ask to be a mod. That will lower your chances of becoming one.


Site/Forum Discussion


There is now a Site/Forum Discussion section, which is more important then it sounds. I'll be posting polls there to get opinions on future updates, which lets you guys get a say on whats going on, and helps me decide what to do. For instance, we'll be voting on what skin to use for our forum, something I think is important for you guys to decide. Also, you can discuss things regarding the site here, and also make site suggestions if you have ideas to improve the site or forum.


Chatbox


We have enabled the forum chat box, which is a cool app that lets you talk to other people online. If we see this being spammed or misused, we will remove it. The forum rules are a little looser on the chatbox, but they still do apply. (For instance, double posting is allowed, spamming is not.) We can also appoint moderators for the chatbox, another spot that can be taken.


Map Maker Apps/Submitted Maps


I've slightly tweaked the rules for these two sections, and so our systems are a little different now for Submitting Maps and applying to becoming a Map Maker. For more info on these, please visit their respective threads.


Banner Contest


It's time for another banner contest! Since we have a new forum, with new requirements, we'll need a new banner. This will start tomarrow, the 8th of October, and continue till the 14th of October. Hopefully we will get alot of new banners and keep our forum fresh. Remember you don't need to put characters of mods/members in the banner. More info about this tomarrow, hold any questions till then.


New Site


Along with the new forum, we are also in the process of revamping our site. You'll be able to check the progress and download any current maps as we work. The new site is http://bsbackgrounds.tk . We tried to keep it short and simple so it will be easier to remember, and the weird twabpower name is officially gone. The site will be much more organized and easy to use, just bear with us as we start to get it going.



So these are a few of the many updates coming your way. If you have any ideas for the site, please post them in the Site/Forum Discussion section. Enjoy the new site and forums!

I was finding the rules which put at the bar up there in the old forum but cannot find...~
Same as I found kind hard to follow the forum when the Last Post Info part at the Board Index only show the time instead of how long ago like the old forum...~
Same as all the things looks too big compare to the old forum... I need time to used to this.. >.>
No more member no. + no more warn % T_T...

Btw...
So happy that the new forum has chat box, which I was really want the old forum to have one b4. ^^
And it was easier than a lot to add things and stuff at the Replying. :3
Hope this forum will become better and never has anything happen like the old forum ever. :3

I know what you mean Kirimy, we are still adjusting those small things so you might have some more stuff to get used to. I'm working on revising the rules a little, you can see them when you register but thats about it for now.

Well, I'm late for that, but I like that banner, especially when I hover over some of 'em. =P I don't really approve of .tk because in the past years I've used it, it redirected to the .tk registeration places and was very confusing. I usually use .co.nr, but maybe .tk has changed since 3 years, though. Yay for this. xD =P
