Hi everyone, The forum will be undergoing a major core update which will result in some downtime whilst the update is applied. The updates will include some UI improvements as well as significantly improved performance with the themes, particularly for mobile users. Also please note, we are suspending the Member Shop and Trophies/Medals features due to lack of developer support. We are looking at bringing these back in a new form sometime in the near future. Thank you for your ongoing support.

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.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.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.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.@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.

Source: crunchyrollHi 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 whenThanks 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 bigHi @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?Hello everyone, First of all thanks to those that applied for the Community Manager, Moderator and Anime Page Curator roles.
