40 000 posts, new banner and theme!
« on: October 18, 2018, 06:26:31 PM »
Greetings, members of Fiver's Honeycomb!

In 2016, this forum reached 30,000 posts.  Since then, the forum has continued to grow, and has now surpassed 40,000 posts!  The milestone post was made by Crackers in a forum game.

On this occasion, a new banner has been added to the forum, featuring an image from the upcoming miniseries.  Another banner is also in the works, and should be added to the forum in a few weeks.

Thank you all for your contributions to the community!  Keep being awesome!  Soon, we will reach 50,000 posts!

We are also toying with other themes to better fit the mood of the miniseries.  Given I think that it will be darker, members can also choose to select our old theme "Losing Hope" in their profiles.  While it is a bland-ish theme, it better fits the mood of what Watership Down is....not really happy and joyful which is where I think this new series is going to go.

You can easily switch themes using the drop-down menu at the bottom of the page.  It is possible to access both the default "A New World" theme and "Losing Hope" this way, as well as other themes, should we create some :frith

We can't roll back the 40 000 posts though :sarcasm

It's almost been two years already?!
Dang that went quickly. I haven't been on in a while, but have been feeling nostalgic lately and decided to see what's up.
Anyways, congrats, everyone on 40 thousand posts!  :cheers

Edit: I missed the Losing Hope theme, glad to see that it has returned!
I've missed this place.
Check out my Deviant Art page. But only if you feel like it.

With this new cover, you will remind us daily that the movie or series is on its way. They look good at the end of the day, although I'm still more caring for the caricature.   :fiver    :hawkbit3 :frost

I love Watership Down!
 
Everything is fine =) (?)

Nice to see you again @Capt. Rake Nightfur and glad you like the old/new Losing Hope theme :)
@Acacia Heartstrings that image is really cute :)

:frith Hooooray for over 40,000 posts! :D

I've changed the background to 'Losing Hope' for now. As Hawkbit said, it does seem to fit what we expect from the miniseries, so what with the run up to the broadcast, might as well be in theme.
Here lies a signature that has little point.
