(FHC News, Nov. 15) New Design, Structure & Life in Fiver's Honeycomb

Dear members, visitors and Watership Down fans,

it's November and while outside everything is getting cold and grey, Fiver's Honeycomb is experiencing a new spring. We were very busy the last days and have interesting news for you!

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

* General Board Renamings
Let's begin this mailing with two minor changes, that shouldn't be unspoken:
Animated Movies & Series has been renamed to Calohki's Cartoon Corner.
Gilia's Video Game Corner has been renamed to Gilia's Video Game Lair.

* Hickory's Comic & Manga Burrow
You, the members of Fiver's Honeycomb, have voted and so, we've created Hickory's Comic & Manga Burrow for discussions about all kind of, well... comics and manga!

*Pipkin's Introduction Revised
Pipkin's Introduction (in Kehaar's ZAP) has been revised. It looks now more compact and the incongruous filter, that adorned the old version, is gone.

*Hannah's Topic Recommendations Revised
Hannah's Topic Recommendations also experienced a revision. The link to our partner-site has been removed (it can be found now below HTRs). Therefor, you find now a quick-link to the new blog-system. The images have been reworked likewise. Because this section is called "Hannah's Topic Recommendations", Hannah is now also visually in charge for this section.

* Watership Down in Donnie Darko
Maybe, some of you might know the movie Donnie Darko, and if not, we recommend you to give it a try, because without Watership Down, this movie wouldn't be possible. Our partner-site HighLonelyHills.com has collected some interesting stuff about Watership Down's influence in Donnie Darko. Fiver's Honeycomb is now providing the respective discussion platform.

*Fiver's Honeycomb Blogsystem
Compared to all the awesome stuff that's been happening here on The Honeycomb throughout the month, this is just a side-note, but we are pleased to announce that you can now have your very own, personal blog within the forum!
The feature would allow you to develop your ideas in an easy-to-manage space as well as to share them with the rest of the community thru the proper, official topic made to fulfill that purpose. You will also be able to tweak the privacy settings at will, to whichever option suits your needs better.
Information about how to create and advertise your blog can be found on the board.

* New Support-Forum for Guests & Members
We want you to feel comfortable in Fiver's Honeycomb. And if you haven't registered yet, you maybe have questions before you join us. We've created Snowdrop's Support Section, where you can ask us, if you have questions. There are two areas: One for guests (and pre-registration questions), one for our members. And if you want to make your request private, you still can contact the staff directly. We're glad to help you!

* New Contact Site and Staff Signatures
The contact site has been reworked. In addition, every staff member has now a special signature, which gives the team a consistend look and makes it easier to contact it.

* Roles for the Council of Chiefs
As a consequence thereof, the staff has now assigned roles so you, the users and visitors can easily find the right contact rabbit (or bat) for your concern, as there are:

- Myrkin: General Questions and Contact
- Silverweed's Claws: Members Support
- Darkling Nocturnal: Design & Programming
- Hawkbit: Founder of Fiver's Honeycomb

* New Design for Fiver's Honeycomb
We've reworked the design for Fiver's Honeycomb. The old design was unfortunately very dull and monotonous. The new design is still dark, however more colorful. The first positive feedback arrived us and we're glad, that the design is accepted by our members. If you haven't seen it yet, come and have a look.

* New Structure in Fiver's Honeycomb
Yes, in course of the design revision, we've decided to restructure Fiver's Honeycomb. First, we wanted to put the focus more on Watership Down. And then, we wanted to make the whole board clearer:

The Watership Down section is now segmented into forums for all Watership Down media:
- The Honeycomb (General Discussions)
- 1972 - The Novel
- 1978 - The Movie
- 1996 - Tales from Watership Down
- 1999 - The Series
- 2016 - The BBC Mini-Series
- The High Lonely Hills (support-forum for our partner-site)

Games and role-plays are merged now within Redstone.
Silverweed's Celebration Chamber is now part of Bluebell's Banter.

Nuthanger Farm got a new section: Tassel's Media Tree. There, you find now:
- Calohki's Cartoon Corner
- Gilia's Video Game Lair
- Hickory's Comic & Manga Burrow

RPG's are combined now into Rabscuttle's Role Playing Tales. This section is also part of Redstone.
