Hi,

Terrainosaur is in a new bulletin board format. There are a lot of advantages to this:

  1. Easy to add on to projects
  2. Possible for users to add comments and ask questions
  3. Much easier to explain, give how-to's, step-by-step instructions, etc.
  4. No HTML to maintain
  5. No frames like the old site, so it's easier to link to
  6. Eventually, users will be able to show content of their own, increasing content on the site

Some people might come to the site expecting a gallery with thumbnails to click on, but I think with plain instructions and well-labelled categories, forums and threads, people will find this easy to use. I hope you enjoy the new approach!

Some functionality of the site has been limited, for the time being.

  • Account activation: This is set so I have to approve all accounts. I go through them every day. It's to avoid spam and bot registrations. Email me if you have any problems getting your account activated.
  • Avatars: Avatars can be used, but none have been loaded and users can't upload their own. If someone knows of a good avatar pack, email me.
  • Smilies: I have different smiley packs, but decided to keep the basic one. If you find a smiley pack you think would be good for the site, email me.
  • Private Messages: Disabled.
  • Flood Interval: The time between posts is set a little higher than normal, to prevent spam or bots. If I get complaints, I'll reduce it.
  • HTML: Not allowed on the board and won't be. BBcode is safer.
  • Styles or templates: The GreenTech style is what you're seeing now. I have other styles like subSilver and subBlack-Gold installed, but I'm going to keep GreenTech the standard for now.
