From midnight tonight the discord chat will be closed for a few days so people can celebrate Christmas. Obviously this Friday's chat falls on Christmas Day night and families should be together not huddled over a chat on a computer.
It''ll be back open in a few days for next Friday (New year's day) but no chat this Friday for obvious reasons! Enjoy your Christmas and be merry!
Whilst I'm not overally concerned with us all having busy lives - myself included, there is a growing concern that when members can come here they take a quick look/up/down the board then leave. Not even a "Hello!". All I will say is, when you can come here; at least be considerate and say a quick hello whilst you're here or that you're checking in.
To that decree, much as before; I feel a lot of people just use the shoutout box to do that, which is fine - but again I feel it can be done on the message board itself. (There is the drop in thread after all.) Which is why - for a little while at least, the shoutout box has been disabled. So members actually use they board when they can be here.
So just say hello (Hopefully little more and engage), and help this community.
It's been gone a long time, but the achievements plugin, receiving special badge awards for contributions to this message board is back!! These awards are random and decided by the admin (me) and also given out randomly by myself! For example here is an example I believe for 3000 posts:
*Actual awards on your profile will be much smaller
For now, I am currently trying to repair all the old ones. All the previous images were on tinypic.com, which is no longer no more. Also since the crash of my PC a long time ago I lost the awards and the template so am making these all fresh and new (Also in a new style) from scratch again! All awards can be found under the "Achievement" tab when you go to your profile OR click on the link in your mini-priofile in posts to the left underneath your avatar where it says "Achievements"
There have been three very minor updates on three banners on three different themes, each adding a little more branding (Renegade logo on the left, mini-bars with the "Till All Are Renegades" text and so on. The three themes with banner updates are:
here is an example of the TF Prime one that was re-done from scratch since I lost my original template I made last year from the PC crash. It also includes more banded (Actual tf prime show text) for our own title text and I decided not to renow the pinky/purple lightening/border.
With the Rodimus Prime banner I also did this with the TFTM 86' text from the movie poster and used that for our title text for that banner as a little love letter nod to the 1986 movie, the full size looks reaaaallly nice!:
i might continue to look at some more and see if they need doing, more urgent ones would take priority.
To celebrate the original animated movie turning 35 recently, we're dedicating a whole month to the movie with a special one-off themed board, to celebrate and remember everything and everything that is the original movie! Favourite moments, favourite song from the soundtrack, did you like the new characters or not and what where your first impresions of them - and Unicron??
If you're feeling adventureous and up for a bit of a fun, the old TFTM 86' parody thread is also back up!
Hoist: Hmm, I'm guessing nothing to do with Beast Wars or Armada, so either a sequel based in or around the first renegade rp trilogy or War For Cybertron? I'm guessing War For Cybertron!
