Changes to staff
Setorin - Administrator
Saelyyia - Moderator

Added a set of rules and guidelines in the 'Review' section of the 'Costumes' forum. Please look these over before posting your review!

http://faenetwork.com/index.php?showtopic=89

Implemented a tagging system!
To tag another member into your post, type @memberusername. When you post your reply, the '@' symbol should disappear. For example, if I wanted to tag my moderator Saelyyia, it would look like this:
Saelyyia
When you tag a member in your post or reply, they should get an alert. You can find your alerts at the far right of your control bar next to 'view new posts'
This is still in beta testing! If something does not work, please notify me.

On the left hand column, the 'Staff' tab has been updated to show myself and Saelyyia as the admin and moderator. Please use this tab if you need to PM or email us about any issue you have concerning the forum.

Updated the ChatBox.

Added a couple of cute emoticons! http://i.imgur.com/JsekN3Q.gif http://i.imgur.com/gHxkm6c.gif http://i.imgur.com/VHksnm1.gif

Additional coding and cleaning up. If there is anything that seems wrong or glitched, please notify me as soon an possible.

Earlier, there was an issue where the Mountain and Seaside skins would not show up properly - they were just solid colors instead of pictures. This was (hopefully) fixed. Please contact me if they seem to be acting up http://i.imgur.com/gHxkm6c.gif

On the far left next to the ChatBox, you will see a Staff button. Click on it, and you will get contact information for the moderators. You may use these to quickly send a message to Saelyyia via PM or to myself via PM or Email.

New Chat Box has been added http://i.imgur.com/fcfBcpz.gif It should be easier to use, and we no longer run the risk of impersonations.

There are still a couple of minor issues but I am working on resolving them http://i.imgur.com/VHksnm1.gif

The header image is now hyperlinked to the homepage!

Finally, the site will be much easier for new members to navigate!
Earlier, you would have to re-enter the URL or click on the small Fae Network button below the log in link.

Now wherever you are on the site, if you want to return to the main page of Fae Network, all you have to do is click the big header image. You will instantly be rerouted to the Fae Network home page.

Hope everyone finds this new feature useful! http://i.imgur.com/VHksnm1.gif

Headers on all skins are fixed!
Earlier, the headers that appeared on Mountains, Seaside, and Woods showed the pink header that appears on Meadow. I updated them so the headers correspond with the appropriate skins http://i.imgur.com/fcfBcpz.gif

Mountains is purple, Seaside is blue, and Woods is gray http://i.imgur.com/VHksnm1.gif

Updated the ShoutBox!
A scroller bar has been added and now the shout history can be viewed up to 50 messages.
Colors have been added! So far there is a range of grays, greens, a red and a pink. More colors will be added http://i.imgur.com/gHxkm6c.gif

The 'Recent Topic Activity' panel near the bottom of the homepage has expanded to shoe 10 new topics instead of 5 http://i.imgur.com/gHxkm6c.gif

Planning an event or have a big announcement on the site? Share to social media! At the bottom of each topic, you will see small Facebook and Twitter symbols that will allow you to directly share the topic on your social media account. Just click and share! http://i.imgur.com/VHksnm1.gif

Temporarily removed user groups such as 'elf' 'faun' fairy' 'pixie' etc. There were some complications with the system that I will have to review later. Not too big of a change http://i.imgur.com/dQajsfG.gif http://i.imgur.com/gHxkm6c.gif

A few new shops have been added to the http://faenetwork.com/index.php?showtopic=104. Be sure to check them out!

Posted by: Setorin 25th March 2016, 12:10 PM
Alright, here's a big one!

I hope that everyone is able to see our new front page! You will see this whenever you log onto Faenetwork. In the future, this front page will hold announcements, statistics, gallery images and more to welcome new and returning members to the community.

To find the forums while you're at the homepage, click on the FaeNetwork header image or click 'FORUMS' underneath the header image.

To return to the homepage while you're on the forums, click 'HOME' underneath the header image.


As always, if there is anything you would like to see added or improved upon, or if there looks like there is a glitch, don't hesitate to mention it! http://i.imgur.com/VHksnm1.gif

Posted by: Setorin 25th March 2016, 10:07 PM
The http://faenetwork.com/index.php?act=gallery is open once again! While we are still undergoing layout renovations, you may now upload images to share with the community!

When you upload a photo, you will see a short set of rules. Please read them over before uploading!

New galleries have been added that you can add your photos into http://i.imgur.com/VHksnm1.gif

Fly on over to the Navigation Bar underneath the site banner and see check out the 'New Posts' tab to look at what what the community has been up to lately http://i.imgur.com/VHksnm1.gif

The default setting shows the activity from last month until now, but adjust the little box in the top right corner to narrow your search from 1 day ago, 1 week ago and one month ago.

This is unlike the 'Recent Topic Activity' seen at the bottom of the forum page, as the 'New Posts' shows the date, the forum it was created in, and who created it. http://i.imgur.com/gHxkm6c.gif

I think it is pretty cool that you added a twitter feed on the home page like that. It looks great.

I'm glad you like it!

There is now a live Twitter feed underneath the welcome message on the home page. Check it out for daily updates on the community and site!

Along with it, I've moved the site navigation links to their own box for easy access to new and existing members http://i.imgur.com/VHksnm1.gif

Have you met FaeNetwork's new pet! Her name is fae, Fae the Fox! She now lives on our home page where she will greet you and follow your cursor around, and in turn you can feed her and offer her lovely purple flowers by clicking the 'more' tab! http://i.imgur.com/gHxkm6c.gif http://i.imgur.com/gHxkm6c.gif http://i.imgur.com/gHxkm6c.gif

So many new things to see on the home page!

Check out our Facebook timeline directly on the site, underneath the Welcome message on the home page. Be sure to like our page if you haven't yet! http://i.imgur.com/VHksnm1.gif

What's a better way to bring a community of playful fae together than to create space where we can all participate in games and contests?

Fly (or swim or prance) over to the new forum category

http://faenetwork.com/index.php?showforum=40

And see what you can enter in! We already have a photo contest up and running. Check it out!

Currently, only admins and moderators can create contests, but if you have a suggestion please don't hesitate to tell us about your idea! We'd love to hear from you http://i.imgur.com/VHksnm1.gif

The 'Tagging' system is back on, hopefully now without bugs. http://i.imgur.com/gHxkm6c.gif
Just as you would tag someone in most social media platforms, simply type an "@" in front of their username, and they will get alerted to that post. You can see if you have an alert in the same bar under the header image that holds "My Controls," "New Messages," and "View New Posts."

For example, if I wanted Saelyyia to see this, I would type an @ and then her name right next to it: Saelyyia

Take note that when your post is posted, the '@' symbol will disappear. Please contact me if you find anything wrong with this! http://i.imgur.com/VHksnm1.gif

Setorin that is so cool! So it's like taking someone of facebook or something?

Posted by: Setorin 1st February 2017, 4:15 PM
Pixiegirl That's just it! http://i.imgur.com/gHxkm6c.gif Thank you for testing it out ;)

Posted by: Setorin 4th February 2017, 10:30 PM
I'm proud to introduce our new forum skin, http://i.imgur.com/gHxkm6c.gif Faerie Glen! http://i.imgur.com/gHxkm6c.gif It's a fresh, clean feeling look with soft pinks and greens. This will also be our new default skin, so new members and guests will see this instead of Meadow.

Scroll down to the bottom of the page to switch it out http://i.imgur.com/VHksnm1.gif


Side note: The Mountains skin is temporarily out of service. We're unsure why, but something went wrong and using the skin made the entire site look wonky and unable to be navigated. It is currently being repaired and will be back soon http://i.imgur.com/gHxkm6c.gif

Posted by: Setorin 5th February 2017, 7:33 AM
The Mountains skin has been repaired and is back on for use! http://i.imgur.com/VHksnm1.gif

If you do notice anything still a little funky, don't hesitate to tell http://i.imgur.com/gHxkm6c.gif
