Please feel free [In reply to] Can't Post

to post parodies on Main!

When I wrote that blurb at the top of Fan Art, I was thinking more of some of the long fan fics we used to get at KiKn. We certainly don't want to change the feel of Main except to take truly Off-topic things to their own home, and give artists a place just for them to showcase things. Truly, I was also hoping to lure more artists back, and new ones here, because I miss it. Smile

I think I'll edit it so it's not so restrictive.

on that topic [In reply to] Can't Post

I just wanted to add one tiny little vote for keeping fiesta on Main. I mean, it seems to me that fiesta was by its very definition the moment when off topic was allowed freely on Main. On the off topic boards it is just chit chat as usual. I don't know... probably I'm just being a stick in the mud :-)

Ah. Here you go. [In reply to] Can't Post

allow NT messages, as I've seen some that weren't identified as such. I also saw someone use [NT], so I've adopted that as my own no-text label. The slash might work if everyone knew what it was, but for me, the meaning of [NT] was immediately obvious.

Ah. Here you go. From the FAQs:
2.7 Are there “No Text” and Spoiler Tags? No. To indicate a “no text” post, write “nt” or “NT” at the end of your post, or simply write a forward slash “/”....

I'd like to second that motion. [In reply to] Can't Post

The other "off topic" subjects, like what are you reading and what movies did you see, will get a lot of replies. Putting the fiesta on main will kind of even things out. Plus it honors the tradition.

I wonder if main will get much traffic now that all the off topic stuff has moved away.

moving from threaded to flat quickly [In reply to] Can't Post

Aunt Dora... after viewing flat for a day, I'm not using threaded to see which I like better. When a thread is very short, I often like flat better... almost no confusion and less clicking. In case you hadn't noticed, it very easy to view flat when you're in threaded default mode by using the button in the upper right hand corner. One doesn't have to change their preferences if they just want flat occassionally. It may be obvious to everyone... but I didn't find it at first so I thought it was worth mentioning.

He looks like one of those pictures you'd get in a joke email! How funny, and what a great pose.

I can understand that. [In reply to] Can't Post

When another board I belong to upgraded, the Admins/PTB disabled certain features to keep as close to the old look as possible, and to avoid the distractions commonly found elsewhere. They set up rules for using the features still enabled.
It still took some getting used to, but it worked out well for us.

So far, I haven't found the new TORn look distracting...
...but if multiple .gifs start showing up in posts and footers and making it look like Vegas.......I'll be adjusting my settings.

Those aren't bad [In reply to] Can't Post

They're just not me. I think I like the well figured tree the best, though.

Thanks for the links! It's fun to browse.
