    Just thought I'd let you know that I'm still playing with the board's layout. I've added a nice background image, and slimmed the forum a bit to make it look nicer.

    Please bare-with-me whilst I continue to try and get this forum looking all pwettyful. Razz

    ---EDIT---

    I'm trying to test a title banner. ^^;

    Just to update you:

    Guests can no longer view topics in the following:

    Online Stuff [Us]
    Art [Hobbies]
    Writing [Hobbies]

    And, as before, they still can't view the following:

    Another update for you all:

    I've installed the Portal page now.

    It's just got a few bits of information on there, and a place I can add some Affliates 'n' stuff.

    If you don't wanna be taken there everytime you come here, please update your bookmark with the following:




    That'll bring you straight into the Forum instead of stopping-off at the Portal first. ^_^

    Birthday Updates


    As it was our birthday last week, I made a few changes...


    Favicon
    The favicon that was once a yellow star, is now green. Hehe!!


    Banner
    You might've also noticed the banner has changed. The plain one has gone and been replaced with the swirl.

    Again, this was something I'd been wanting to do for a while now.


    Background
    The background swirl is kinda darker than it used to be, so hopefully it won't burn your eyes anymore. XP

    I did experiment with a couple of other images, the other backgrounds made it difficult to see the floating text anyways. And the colour swirl seems to be like, out forum mark or something anyways. ^^;


    Navigation
    I'm sure you could already tell straight away that the old grey buttons have now been replaced with crazy coloured ones. Hehehe!!

    I'd been wanting to do that for ages, but decided to wait until I had an excuse like the birthday to do it. =D


    Badges
    I made some badges for the special ranks, as you can see. As well as some new stars for the member levels. Hehe!!


    Groups
    The groups now properly have assigned colours, which are as follows:

    Administrators [male] = Blue
    Administrators [female] = Pink
    Moderators [male] = Red
    Moderators [female] = Purple

    In addition to these staff groups, a new member group will be added, who's colours will be Orange (male) and Yellow (female). This group is for members with particularly high post counts.

    I haven't actually decided the count yet coz when I first thought of it, I thought the count was too high, but then again, alot of random stuff gets posted here, so it isn't hard to accidently end-up with large post counts anyways. XD

    And I also don't wanna encourage posting just for counts either. Post counts aren't important, and this new group is just something I wanna do for a few reasons; it's fun, it's a nice way of rewarding members, and I needed something to use orange and yellow on. XP

    Domain

    Paid for the domain name!! Whoop!!

    You can now reach Nexus Beach through the following URL:
    http://www.nexusbeach.com/

    So, by simply typing nexusbeach.com into your broswer, you should find your way here. =D

    Much simpler than the whole nexusbeach.forumotion.com one (which you can still use).

    You might have to sign-in again on the new URL, but that's easily done. Hehe!!

    Major Changes

    Nexus Beach will be undergoing some major changes in the next month. The forum shouldn't go down, but it may look a little mixed-up as I try out some new graphics and such. If you have any problems getting on, please contact myself or another member of staff and I'll get right on it.

    One of the biggest changes, other than the look, will be the name. This will also mean the url is going to change (probably at the end of the month when I can afford a new domain name), and we'll have to help eachother out by spreading the new url around for others. =)

    Also, if anyone's interested in helping me with some new graphics, please let me know. I have too much choice in my head right now. >_<

    --- EDIT ---

    Just put up a temporary banner and background. Hope you like.

    Okies, so there's been a major change. XD Though I'm sorry, I have to admit that I didn't make the base theme. I suck at choosing, so I went on a hunt for something I like. I then edited it myself, and well, this is what we have so far.

    I still have to make some new buttons for the Portal Home Page, but they'll probably be finished soon (as I'm off work due to some weird illness).


    --- EDIT ---

    Ok, so I've just made a couple of new basic buttons. Here's one I'll be using on various websites to link back to the forum with:


    Please feel free to save the image, upload it in whatever image hosting account you have, and use it to link back here. But remember, I'll be updating the forum url at the end of the month, so if you use the button for linking now; you'll have to update your linked url later on. =)

    Right. Got rid of the ads. I couldn't see them anyway because I use AdBlock Plus, but it was keeping a gap in the top between the board and the title, which I didn't like. =p

    Also, this should help anyone not using any kind of ad blocker. But it's not cheap. So I think I'll only keep it after the 6 months I've paid for, if we get donations to cover it.

    If anyone has any ideas about advertising; please feel free to share. I've posted the details on certain search engines, and into my signature on other websites, as well my links on other websites. Annnd I've just put it as my signature in my emails too. =)
