One with as many active members in it as possible would be cool.

Also I would like to request a fanfic forum. If we have one I might actually post my recently-finished chapter 1 there, in order to fill it up a bit.. :)

yeah, so everyone can put their fanfics in there and hopefully encourage people to post more fanfic. should we reply and give feedbacks on the fanfics? if so, should it be done on the same forum if it ever exists?

It's a good question. Of course there should be feedback, and yeah it would be in the fanfic forum along with the fic itself, but would it be in the same thread? Hmmm..

Three possible ways of doing it -
1) Have the fic threads stickied and comment-free, with a title like "[Fanfic] Kivan: Tales of a Kivan". Then have separate comment threads for each fic. The advantage of this is people can easily read back over the entire fic in one go.
2) Just have it freeform like we've done so far: Someone posts a bit of fic, everyone comments, then the next bit goes up in the same thread. Would be a bit clunky for long/popular fics.
3) Separate thread with its own comments for each fic post, with titles like "Title - Part 2". Prevents massively long threads but means lots of hunting if people want to reread the whole thing.

Being sensible, I was going to post chapter 2 (eventually) by editing the first post and replying to the thread with "chapter 2 added".

I'm sure there's some kind of character limit for threads though, so folks couldn't do that indefinitely!

Can we have the avatar/username back on the left side of threads? My brain refuses to look at the right side of the screen for some reason.

haha, yeah. Tell me about it Nox. That's just one of the styles though. You can change what you have selected. I've got it on fisubice2 right now. Go to User Control Panel - Board Preferences and change the dropdown for My Board Style.

I say bring back Kiv's awesome banner.
But so far really like the new forum.

Oh - I am using the default prosilver and like it, but yeah the swap of user things to the right is odd. But I think the skin looks smoother and sexier than the other 2 old fashioned square ones :)

using the prosilver one aswell. the other ones look kinda bland to me.

at first the avatars on the right were confusing, but now im into it.

i just wish there was a sharper line separating each post. but maybe thats just my monitor contrast.

On mine the background a slightly different shade on alternating posts plus there is a white gap between each one. Maybe it is about monitor contrast if you can't see those differences.

definitely contrast then. my monitor has been suffering of that lately (and other issues). i'll try and tweak it using software but maybe its time to get a new one.

edit: oh man!! the posts background have a blue hue to them??? it all looked white to me XD
its a lot better now :D
