(FHC News, Sep 16) Contests Galore
« on: September 07, 2016, 01:52:15 AM »
Dear members and visitors of Fiver’s Honeycomb,

This month is an especially eventful one – pun intended. From contests to structural tweaks, all it takes is one look around to know that the Honeycomb has been changing. Read on to know why.

List of Contents:

- Parody Contest
- New subforum: Spartina’s Competition Pit

#############################

* Parody Contest

Thanks to an idea by Silverweed’s Claws, a new event is up and running! The Parody Contest actually closed a few days ago, but all members (regardless of whether they submitted entries) are still free to vote for their favorite parodies in this thread. The poll will be open until Thursday, September 8th.

* New Subforum: Spartina’s Competition Pit

It’s worth mentioning that both threads linked above are in a new subforum. Spartina’s Competition Pit is located in Hawkbit’s Corkboard and will be used to hold all forum events, which included but aren’t limited to:

- Contests (ex. Parody Contest, 2015 Christmas Avatar Contest)
- Polls for contests
- Avatar switches (ex. Summer Avatar Switch)

* Tweaks to Forum Structure

A few changes have been made to the Honeycomb’s layout, some so subtle that you may not have noticed until this mailing! Here’s a quick overview:

- Prince Rainbow’s Messages: As you may have noticed, a new module has appeared on the main forum page, below Hannah’s Topic Recommendations and above Hawkbit’s Corkboard. Due to a technical difficulty, it wasn't visible before, but now it is. This is a simple news feed used to communicate the most important changes to all members.

- BBC Mini Series Year: Unfortunately, information about the new Watership Down TV series has been rather murky, and the release date is unknown. To reflect this, the forum section “2016 – the BBC Mini-Series” has been replaced with “201x – the BBC Mini-Series”.

- Forum Section Descriptions: And finally, some of the descriptions for forum sections have been edited for grammar and clarity.

* Welcome Bright Side to the Council

After Hawkbit’s retirement in June, the Council of Chiefs was down to three. Bright Side, one of the Junior Owsla members, was appointed to take his place. Her official role is “Mailings and Event Planning”, so feel free to talk to her about these areas or anything else. Let us welcome her to the team!
