Welcome to the latest edition of the R3 news, with a slightly different version this time. As there have been loads of changes on the forum as a whole, we are going to focus on covering these, as well as the usual topic links.
Staring with the most obvious change - the forum layout. we hope that it is now in a more logical layout, .Apart from the Featured Games section, no forum has been removed however you might find that some are now sub-forums of another area.
Rather than describing the whole layout to you all - this topic -Forum Changes covers some of the adjustments.
In brief a few of the others are:
All script forums are sub forums of the Game Engines.
Reviewers forum split into-
Previews ( subforum of Long Demos)
Reviews (subforum of Full Games)
Magazine Forum moved to the Entertainment Section
IRC Chat discussion -sub forum of General Discussion.
Other changes are as such still work in process- but the most obvious one is the new badges. These have since had a revamp and are now fully complete. We've had many designs over the years and this set is a combination of the best bits.
We will be working on both new banners, and a forum skin to complete the look with added extras! So keep a close watch in the future.
Also introducing a new feature here at RRR which some of you have asked about previously and now we've got it all set up and ready to go.
It's as simple as that
Enjoy making those game trailers and making your project topics more interesting.
If you've not been one for checking out our Gallery then now's the time to do so, it's undergone some massive changes! There's new areas for resources and now it's even easier to find the things you really want!
With that though there comes an apology, we've corrected a mistake which was made during set-up many years ago. Members wondered what the added perks were of being a Revolutionary, with this one of the things was that they'd be able to create their own personal Gallery. This has been for a while open to all groups and has now been reverted back to the system it was originally designed for.
If you'd like to start filling up these new and clear sections then don't be afraid, the views and downloads of images from the main sections are brilliant and it's a great way to get your work used and credited within someone's project, don't forget that the images you post are usually approved within 24~48 hours.
Along with the forum layout and Gallery alterations comes a whole flurry of new staff, and sadly a few retirements.
Nightshade, Nightrunner and Darkblade have left to concentrate on other projects- all three will be missed as their contributions to the site were legendary. We thank them for the the time and commitment and wish them well,
Leagcy has been promoted to Global Mod, and Dark Yoshi is now promoted to full Local Mod status. Rob_Riv has returned to help in the Creative Commons as Local Mod.
- well done and congratulations you three!
There are a few new Rookie Mods and we welcome them to the team-
Sailerious taken over the XP forum and RGSS script forums.
Redd is helping in the XP forum and the Event Emporium.
Niscp and Ominal have joined forces to mod the Role Playing Section.
