  1. Hey, Optic. Do you remember me?! I thank you for spearheading this anime site. I am eternally grateful! 

    Take care.

      Hey, yes of course. :) Nice to see you again.

    Creative Corner - Closed and Archived

    @Greeneyes when it got out of control, pre-moderation was introduced and a lot of the YouTube advertising was intercepted before it was made public. I personally feel that Blogs would be a better medium to showcase written works, and you'll still get front page exposure.
  3. Hi everyone, Club topics are now being shown on the front page again to try and boost your clubs. It was temporarily disabled because every clubs' pinned topics were showing on the front page. Two changes since reactivation: The sidebar filter for Club forums has been hidden on the front page, the block was too high due to the number of clubs. If your Club topic is a pinned topic, it won't appear on the front page - this is to avoid it clashing with the main pinned topics, such as our Forum Rules & Guidelines. But of course your topic will still be pinned when inside your Club forum tab. I believe this is the best compromise for now. If you really want front page exposure, try to avoid pinning it. As before, if your Club has a Gallery, the album and recent image uploads will appear when viewing the main Gallery home page.
  4. Adding Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha Reflection to the list, and eagerly awaiting its sequel Detonation.

    I was meaning to reply to this awhile ago but got held up with other projects and work, sorry. Yes, more or less. The anime and movie was fantastic... Hoshino is a great robotic girl.
  6. Thanks for the screenshot of your full view on mobile whilst in desktop mode. So to clarify: 1. We don't actually have a dedicated mobile site. The theme is responsive based. Which means as your browser width reduces, things and columns on the side start to disappear (the sidebar being the main one). You can actually test this on your desktop if you resize your browser window width So because of this, there shouldn't be any difference if Desktop Site mode is enabled in your mobile browser. I just find it odd that on your Samsung Galaxy S7 the viewport width is so big it accommodates the sidebar? I would have expected it to be similar to my first screenshot. Looking at Google's Material database your phone has a viewport resolution of 360px x 640px: I'm a little confused because when I resize my browser window on my desktop to reproduce your screenshot, the width I get is around 1000px. To me this looks more like what I'd expect from a tablet in landscape mode. Are there any other features /settings on the Samsung Galaxy S7 that might be causing the sidebar to show up like that? 2. We can edit the theme to force that column to appear even if the sidebar appears in responsive mode But I am worried this will be too squashy for mobile users if this is done for everyone. When the theme is developed we use your viewport size as a reference (as per the above picture), so I can probably add a separate override for devices in-between. As @ArchieKun noted there are many different mobile devices we need to cater for. 3. Also as a workaround, you can also try using the Activity Stream on mobile: https://animeforums.net/discover/
  7. Hi @XII360 nothing has changed recently in regards to the theme. It has been like that since Day 1 when we moved to this platform for mobile users. Having said that, it looks like your mobile device has more width than mine (but the width is still small enough for the responsive layout kicks in) This is how it looks for me: Out of curiosity what mobile device are you using?
  8. My personal preference is cloud storage - I.e OneDrive (already have a monthly Office365 subscription) so may as well leverage the 1 TB storage.
  9. Great work you did here, senpai. ^^

    New Staff

    Hello everyone, First of all thanks to those that applied for the Community Manager, Moderator and Anime Page Curator roles. Recruitment is now complete and here is our new line-up: https://animeforums.net/staff/ Community Manager @ArchieKun Moderator @the_twig @Roxeg @Beocat @XII360 Anime Page Curator @awesomedude20 @Neptvne Mini profiles and distinct rank images are work in progress to better distinguish them. Please extend a very warm welcome to these new staff of Anime Forums.
  11. So I have a Switch and I've thought about getting this when it comes out:


    1. Optic


      It certainly looks cute for a side scroller. I still haven't started Cyberdimension Neptunia yet... 😓

    2. Ryuji


      It's not cute at all. It's beautiful.

      I assume you haven't started it because of your work schedule. Of course you don't seem to be into HDN as much as you used to be. Maybe it's just my imagination.

      I love the music in the trailer.


    3. Armada


      Love the music!

  12. Hi there Optic hope work has been going well. I know you were saying its been a bit rough. How has life outside work been?

    1. Optic


      Hey ArchieKun, I'm now on a rotating shift of 5pm to 1am and 1am to 9am. Still adjusting and getting used to it. :P

    2. ArchieKun


      I see I have normally worked a regular schedule, but right now I work part time a couple days a week at a department store. What do you do for work?

      I have done rotinng shifts before that can be tough.

  13. Hi everyone, Finally got around to adding new sets of anime character type images. You can select the one you want by editing your profile. Many thanks to @Wedgy @Izzy and @xWickedNekox for contributing these. Set 1 by @Wedgy Set 2 by @Izzy Set 3 by @xWickedNekox Thanks again to those that contributed full sets.
