After lots of self-deliberation (and tons of help provided by our good Darkling), I have decided that it was -about damn- time to take my site to the next logical step and create a message board to go with it. It mostly exists as an easier way to keep every article on the site organized (which God knows I have been struggling with) and also to reduce the time which the user submissions take to validate. Trust me, it wasn't short.

Now, this is barely off the ground as we speak, but it is also decent enough to warrant a thread about its existence.

These are the goals/things to do:

  • Edit the CSS code so the theme matches the one already on the main site: I'm currently giving this one zero priority, because there's so much else going on, but I will get around it soon enough (that said, if anyone is already experienced with this and feels like giving a hand, go ahead and contact me).

  • Posting every -worthwhile- article on the board: Already on it, but it won't be done soon.

  • Random fixings all over the board: Already on it as well. Minor tweaks are required on several small areas such as group colors and whatnot. It should be done soon.

Honestly, my site gets enough visits a month to guarantee that someone is going to join, but it won't be a good board without you guys. I really do hope to see some of you there at some point (and if you decide against it, Darkling and I -and maybe Myrkin, if he feels like it- are going to do things to your Honeycomb accounts :P-.

Anyway, here's the link:

See ya soon!

I admire your devotion to your site, Claws.

Unfortunately, I don't speak Spanish and I don't know CSS, so I probably couldn't help.  Sorry.

Thank you!

The site is primarily English-speaking, though. The last couple of submissions had been made by the guy who posts all the Spanish things, so I understand your confusion there. English material is going to be posted next.

At the time of this post, all articles from 2015 and 2016 have already been posted on the forums.

We have also created a custom theme for the board and are currently working on the CSS code for optimal customization.

Right now, all is left to do is posting all articles from 2014 and we are done!
