Before I get further into changing things up on this forum, I just wanted to let everyone know what's going on and what to expect....
As per the answers to the survey I did last month I decided to change the forum up to make it more user friendly for everyone. The changes won't be huge like the year I decided to switch the forum software, the layout and web address which brought the site down for a month, instead they will be more minor changes and the forum should still be usable during its implementation.
Below is a list of changes that have either already been implemented or will be implemented with the upcoming months and description of each change:
Mobile Device Layout
Some of you may have noticed this layout on and off on the site lately. I'm currently tweaking a layout to see if it will work well with the site. I haven't settled on the layout yet so it still may change later in the year.
Also, some of the News page layout has been changed so that it would look better on a mobile device.
WYSIWYG Text Editor
This one is already installed. The editor hides most of the BBcodes and allows you to see the formatting within the text box while you are typing. The only exception is custom BBcodes (i.e. hide, spoiler, anchor tags) will still show in the editor as code form. Either way, it should declutter a lot of the text editor and make it easier to write a post the way you want.
I will be posting tutorials in the future about posting walkthroughs using the new text editor and the posting template.
Also want to mention that mentions is not currently playing nicely with this editor. It won't look up the name you want in the text editor when you type [member=10377]username[/member]. Mentions still works though as long as you type the full username of the user in the text editor. I do plan to have this problem fixed soon.
Cafe Menu was restructured so that it would work better with the new mobile layout and so that users have easier access to information they care most about. Let me know what you think of the new structure!
Merging Otome Game Database with User Reviews
I'm in the process of doing this one now. It seems a waste of the space and website resources to have two separate areas that could easily be
