New Raven Theme:

Our new Raven theme is online! I'll be doing a follow-up post with a list of all the changes, and what you can do with the new theme. For now, please explore, report any bugs to me, and I hope you enjoy!

Wow, the new theme caught me off-guard, as it looked one way at work, and an entirely different way when I got home. So far, though, I like it!

I like it too, although it is a bit difficult to figure out what has been read and what hasn't. Any chance of making that a bit easier to see?

I like the new look... but we apparently can't manage our linked accounts? It brings me to an error page.

Forums with new topics have big blue icons, forums that have nothing new have icons in gray. Does that help?

There's also a small "new" button in the upper right. There's a set of five icons for helping you find new posts. Hover over each icon to see what it does.

On the mobile theme it does not show the name of the last person to post on a thread, just the name of the person who started the thread.

On Chrome, I have my DJ banner up and it's really short top to bottom, with the words over the banner, instead of below.

Saw that, fixed that. :)

The new banner system has different dimensions, so I am having to fix the banners. :)

Loving the new forums... Very slick and easy on the eyes. I do have one question. Will we be able to resort the forum orders like we did before?

Yes. That was all custom code I have to put back on place on the new forums.

I think she meant, because I would like to know as well, is how to change the order of the sections? Like moving Thelus down and EQ2 up?

Yes, but the line you quoted was not my answer to her question. Look up to the post before that. Section ordering is in-progress. I will post when that part is done.

Category Sort Order:

The control arrows on the forums work, you can now selectively re-order the forum categories as you like. For example, you can put Thelus under EQ2 instead of its default position of being over it, and so on. Click on the arrows on the right-side of any category to re-order them.

The category positions are stored in cookies, and so they will not be transferred between browsers, unless you use a browser with browser-cookie synching enabled.

Banner:

The Raven's main banner has been re-done by Erithe to better work with a compressed board style.

Compressed Board Style:

On a PC, you can shrink the board fairly thin, and it will automatically remove the sidebar to make room. This also happens automatically on mobile devices.

Festival of Unity!

https://fou.ravenfire.net/

The Festival of Unity web site has been updated with a new banner, and new forum icons for this month's festival, running from the 24th to the 30th. Work is still in progress on setting up the events, and there's a planner's meeting tonight. People interested in contributing to the event should contact Slipps for more information.

Also, as a note, if you're an official FoU staff member, and you would like to DJ RFN during the event, please let me know. I'm willing to extend DJ privileges to any official staff member that might want to run RFN during event nights.

RMTV:

RMTV now has the option of having a built-in ShoutBox window. This will allow people to view RMTV and ShoutBox in the same window if they like. By default the window ONLY opens onto the #RMTV channel.

The Raven-Mythic Landmark guild, L.O.R.E. (League of Raven Explorers), is now active in Landmark. If you wish to join up with us, please let me (Erithe), Kiarryn, or Lily know that you want to join up and we'll extend to you and invite!

Some things of note per the game: Combat will be in game on 8/27/2014, along with monsters and several other interesting things. It's a good time to test run some of the early classes. Falling damage will also be added at that time. So, if you want to help us fight off the nasties, now's a good time to join.

Please see the discussion of Landmark and L.O.R.E. here: viewtopic.php?f=312&t=33992
