This thread is for questions about the Forums Update that took place in late December.

If you have questions about other parts of the site or service, or are encountering problems please post in the Site Support / Minor Questions forum




~Update~

So we've done the biggest portion of the overhaul!
I've got a few minor tweaks left, but those will come later in the day.

Here is a breakdown to changes made.

* Changes to layout of forums
- General Discussion moved to 'Entertainment' section
- Polls moved to 'Entertainment section
- Contest-Hime's Contest Corner has been moved to 'General'
- Forum Games has been moved to 'Lifestyle'

* Forums Merged
- Extended Discussion has been merged with General Discussion
- Console Gaming & PC Gaming have merged into 'Gaming'
- Asian Drama has been merged with Movies and TV Shows
- Artist's Corner, Writer's Corner, Cosplay Corner & Modeling Corner have merged to be 'Creative Corner'

* New Sections!!
- Chit Chat - a place to say hello, and just talk in general. Personal threads OKAY!
- Advice, Info, Recommendations - need help figuring out the name of an Anime, or just /anything/ in general? Personal threads OKAY!
- Enthusiasts' Corner - A place to talk about your YouTube, Twitch, Tumblr, etc. Personal threads OKAY!

* Updates to come 12/23/24 -- This is DONE!
- Entertainment will be renamed 'Discussion'
- Lifestyle will be renamed 'Crunchy Connections'

I'll also be keeping an eye on the front page to make sure that the recently active forums list there repopulates correctly.
12/26 -- looks like it is back--yay! --lorreen

Best,
-Bjaker

addendum from lorreen:
Threads from "Photo Album" ended up all over the place, but a lot of them are now in Chit Chat
See below the spoiler for direct links to all the former Photo Album threads:

Where's the general board?

Wait, found it. I do think that general should be closer to the top though.

Apologies for sections jumping around! It's a little weird to move things!!

As long as you don't merge the general and extended discussion together the new layout will be great...! =D

Whatever you do, don't do a infamous Google YouTube update... For those of you who don't know, they're known for doing horrible layout updates!

Is this a full update or is it just a few things moved into diff spots?

We're moving some sections
Merging others
Renaming a bunch
Creating new areas for more general discussion

Etc.

There are no design changes, this is all layout / what not!

How about making sub categories to already existing categories?

For instance, when I'm in the general discussion topic then (sometimes) I get everything from politics to funny goffy threads. So I'd like to see 2 diff sub general threads with politicle focus and a more goffy one.

Also, if possible then I'd also like to have some sort of use for the CR points I've collected over the years.

A major goal for this initial update was to help streamline where discussions take place.
I'll think on / discuss with the other moderators the possibility of further breakdown within a subsection.

As far as CR Points go, I'm brainstorming ways to use these!
