After a long long time in the making, the forums have arrived!

Some of you who are familiar with online forums may (or may not) have noticed that we are not using standard forum software (Like vBulletin, or Invision.. etc). This was a bold move that i took the gamble with a couple of weeks ago when I contemplated adding forums to the site.

I figured it would be easier to add forums to the existing user system, rather than move the user system to other-available forum software. Was it a good idea? Hopefully!

So yeah. I have done a little testing by myself.. and hopefully can get you guys involved to tell me what you like and don't like about it with help from the Suggestions, Improvements & Feedback forum! In there I have added a sort of 'todo' list for myself which everyone is able to see. Hopefully this will motivate me to getting bits and bobs done around the site, as procrastinating is one of my specialities

Anyway, as a little warm up.. I'll leave this topic open for you guys to tell me what you think!

I'm looking forward to talking to some of you guys after seeing you online so much, with the users online list!

I like it a lot, but the only thing is, this thread would get clogged up quickly with only 'general discussion' There should be a manga/anime part for only that stuff, since 'general discussion' includes...anything general. That's what i think.

Cool, thanks for the feedback MelodicKiseki.

I did sort of notice some of the bigger anime forums had literally 40 different forums. The reason we only have a few (at the moment, that is), is simply not to overwhelm everyone with so much choice of where to post.

I think as the forum activity increases, we will be able to add a few more forums. (Even though it took me long enough which ones to decide what to start with, haha)

I've added 2 more forums, under the "Anime & Manga" Forum.. which.. is in general

  • General Anime
  • General Manga Talk

Of course, these are in no way permanent.. and will more than likley change when the forums expand a little bit

This user would like to announce that she is in fact dsylexic, has a wonky keyboard and is often chemically inconvenient. The user requests you take spelling and grammatical errors with a pinch of salt.

Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.
