  3. Hello @HanaApril , thank you for your kind comments. Yes, you can of course approach me with any issues, certainly the other staff here can also assist too. I myself have been taking care of mostly the technical back-end of things since the founding of AF.
  4. Hello everyone, Due to some personal reasons @ArchieKun has decided to step down as Community Manager. He is pursuing a few opportunities that will take a good amount of his time. He will still be around to hang out when he can, but will no longer be serving on AF staff. I sincerely thank him for the contributions he has made to AF. A vacancy for this role will be advertised in future.
  5. Hi @Illusion of Terra Thanks for the feedback. Our main focus is on the forum discussion areas. So at this time we're not considering any official live chat groups / chat boxes. We did have a few in the past but they drastically increased our moderation workload and also split the community between the forum posters and chatters - not an inherently bad thing but currently we are a rather small community. We're not completely ruling it out, they might return as the community grows.
  6. If we're both thinking of the same community, there was an older community called "Anime-Forums.com" which went down due to new owner issues. A handful of members started their own community called Sakuga City. And no relation.
  7. I was contacted about this. There were some blank line breaks in the About Me area. This should now be sorted.
  8. @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.
  9. 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.
  10. Adding Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha Reflection to the list, and eagerly awaiting its sequel Detonation.
  11. 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.
  12. 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/
  13. 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?
  14. My personal preference is cloud storage - I.e OneDrive (already have a monthly Office365 subscription) so may as well leverage the 1 TB storage.

    Hi @SIlverFoxtail, you're not supposed to advertise your channel in the forum topic discussions, only in your Profile/Signature.
  18. Sorry for the delay, I will begin reviewing the Moderator and Anime Page applications this weekend. As it stands, only @ArchieKun has applied for the Community Manager role so far - so if there are other interested candidates please do apply.

    Once upon a time we were on MyBB, then XenForo and now IPB, I am pretty sure that topic was made during MyBB days. Member dates probably didn't migrate after so many platform conversions.
  20. Applications have closed for the Moderator and Anime Page Curator roles. The Community Manager role is still open for applications for another week. Thanks to those that have applied so far.
  21. Hi @numlockQ welcome to AF. I have never shopped at Nippon Yasan but here is their preorder policy: https://www.nippon-yasan.com/content/10-precommandes Sounds like you chose to Pay Later just before the release date? I would confirm with customer service before making payment just in case they already cancelled your pre-order as you’ve missed the reminder date.
  22. @Spookyburrito yes after you've made a few approved posts many features become unlocked including the ability to edit your own posts. We've had to put this restriction in due to recent SPAM.
  23. As I said, you are welcome to post a link in your signature to your channels / portfolio hosting these. Forum topics here were never a great place to discuss individual pieces like this as noted in my first post above. Discussion on general art techniques and technologies can go into Chit Chat.
  24. @Greeneyes I noticed you have created 2 albums in the Gallery already, and they are also visible on your Profile - so you can just promote them in your signature and profile for now.
  25. If it no longer exists, well I am certain you can find some evidence that it existed in the past - such as other websites or social channels linking to it? Previous experience is not the only factor when assessing applications. Of course, relevant, verifiable experience would reflect positively in your application, but the other selection criteria would also be strongly taken into consideration.
