ACTUAL CANNIBAL SHIA LABEOUF
UPDATE 003 · WE'VE RE-OPENED, OMG!
Hey everyone! Long time no see, right?!
So as you've noticed the hiatus is officially over, and the staff are settled back in and ready to tear shit up around here! We've got some new stuff to throw at you and a ton of new ideas that we've kept bottled up for the past month, so let's break out some of these shiny new things for your viewing pleasure.
So there's a new skin apparently, and it's pretty dark and edgy I guess. The theme in general is set for a creepy and halloween-ish tone, but teals and greys instead of the conventional orange and black. This new style will be the template that all of our other skins will adhere to, so that's pretty cool! Yeah, you read that right, 'other skins'. Terra's a loser who likes having multiple skins to choose from so expect probably a lot more as time goes on. With that being said, our original skin has been taken down and can't be used until it's been re-coded to fit the new style. It'll come back, don't worry! I'll be sure to let ya'll know when that goes down. Also, if anyone ever notices any odd things about the skin (issues reading text, glitches, odd nitpicky things) please be sure to let Terra know! FOR SCIENCE! c:
Did you notice the new faction section in the miniprofile? Yeah, so that's a thing. Next to the membergroup in a character's mini profile is a section for you to display your faction, and can be edited by both the members themselves and/or staff. Please keep in mind that this section is basically for those characters who are in a faction officially, and will otherwise show up as N/A if nothing's put there. It's an interesting little feature, right? Since the update you'll have to edit your characters' profiles to reflect if they're in a faction or not, chances are if you don't Terra will just be a nitpicky jerk and put it in for you. Oh, and as an afterthought, the profiles' quote section is larger now allowing for strings of lyrics if you're into it. Fitting a tiny quote in there was a pain in the ass before, so go nuts with as many lines as you like!
So we have a tagbox now, that's a neat new plaything. See, before when people posted threads or replied to posts, or even posted a new app or plotter/something in general they wanted other people to notice, the 'view new posts' link at the top right of the site's taskbar didn't pick up on a lot of these new posts or topics and threads would go un-answered or ignored entirely. (Sorry to those of you who have ever been inconvinenced by this) After much deliberation we decided to get ourselves a tagbox, which you can use to post up when you post for someone and people can check this as a more reliable way of telling people you're writing and being productive. So, be sure to use that, ok?
Well holy damn we have a goddamn playlist now, lookit that shit. Hover over the little music bar icon in the bottom right of the site to start it, and let yourself slip away to badassville with these wicked tunes decided upon by the staff. Keep in mind that the playlist will only play while you're on the same page as when you started it, but if you want it to play while you're buzzing around from page to page or doing other shit, just click the pop-out playlist link above the cbox and viola~ Hope you enjoy, you're welcome. c;
Holy mother of god, two event links in the site's updated carousel?! Oh my god the world is coming to a goddamn end. Well, that is the point, right? But, I digress. We've yet to actually launch those, but we'll be sure to in the following week or so. Keep your eyes and ears peeled for some cool stuff, probably halloween-related 'cause hey it's october and we need more spoopy shit around here to fit the whole 'end of the world' thing, after all. (Oh, also the carousel in the site header got a facelift, so we've got more links and it's all organized better. Ta-da~)
Also have you noticed the the boards have been cleaned up and threads have been archived for inactivity? If you want any threads moved back to be resumed since the hiatus, please let the staff know so we can get on that right away! New threads are always great, but we don't want to force anyone to have to start from scratch if they were really digging what they were into before, ya feel?
For now this is all we've got to announce, but now that we're crawling out of this stasis we've been for the past month or so count on it getting far busier around here from now on. Halloween is the best time of year, november really just has that 'post apocalypse' vibe, and with fallout 4 and new mad max movies on the horizon, there's gonna be more than enough muse to go around for everybody! Can I get a hell yeah? Damn straight. So, now that you've read all this you're probably wondering why I didn't mention anything about when our next activity check will be or when we'll be running member awards again. Since we're picking up after a hiatus and need to build our numbers again after the last activity check, count on the end of november to be our next activity check and member awards. Sound good? Coolio.
As usual, catch all you badasses in the Mojave!
