Announcements & Information / Important: Account Activation Notice
« on: November 05, 2018, 03:22:18 PM »
This is mainly to all of our future members who decide to register an account on the forum. First of all, welcome to Worldsmyths! And thank you for deciding to join.

For some reason, our forum host, SMF, is not sending out e-mails for activating new accounts. I don't know why (I plan to look into this). I don't even get the e-mails telling me when people register an account any more, and I haven't in months. So because of that, I have to go in and manually activate an account before it's activated. I just wanted to let you guys know that this is the case, and ask that you please be patient, since sometimes people register while I am away at work or sleeping and am unable to activate an account until I get home. In the meantime, we invite you to check out our Discord server and join in on the chatting until I'm able to get your accounts activated! Thank you!

Hey everyone,

So, I wasn't made aware until it was too late that apparently the current theme(s) for the forum are now outdated because of doing the update because of some kind of a security thing that comes as part of the update, which means that some people may be having issues logging in unless they always keep themselves logged into the forum through their browser. -_-

So, I am going to work on getting one (or more) new theme(s) installed a.s.a.p...hopefully over the next few days. If you are having trouble logging in, see if for the heck of it you can try it in another browser. If not, please send an e-mail to worldsmythwriters@gmail.com, just so that I can know how many, if any, people are actually having trouble logging in.

Also, if there are any themes that aren't butt ugly and you think would work for the forum, feel free to look at that link and reply to this thread with the link to it...I will look at it, and see if I can install it and hopefully it will work. (Also, it would be good if it was one of the "responsive" themes, because that means they'd be mobile friendly, and we wouldn't need Tapatalk any more.)

Note regarding theme suggestions: It also needs to be something that won't require a ton of customization, 'cause then we get into "oh crap, Ally doesn't know how to fiddle with CSS and not break the forum and has no one to do it for her" territory. :P

Also, just so people are aware: apparently any posts that are made via Tapatalk to do not show up in the activity stream, which I wasn't aware of when I installed it. So keep this in mind, if you choose to use it to post on the forum (which, so far I think I'm the only one who's done so anyway :P ).

Announcements & Information / IMPORTANT: We Are Mobile Friendly!
« on: October 26, 2018, 10:07:22 PM »
Guess what, everyone!

Because I finally updated the forum software, I was finally able to install Tapatalk, which is a phone app that will allow everyone to browse the forum from their phones more easily! The forum not being mobile friendly has been a struggle and frustration from day one because we've lost potential members due to it not being mobile friendly, so we're really hoping this will help shift things around!

Here are the directions you need to be able to find the forum on Taptalk (I have an iPhone, so these are the directions based on what it does for my phone/what was given in the e-mail I was sent after it was installed into the forum).

If you don't already have the Tapatalk app installed on your phone, you will need to go to http://tapatalk.com/m. It will ask you to install the app.

Once you do so, you can either go to http://forum.worldsmyths.com or you can go to https://www.tapatalk.com/forum/2106963 and you will immediately be brought to the mobile friendly version of the forum in the app. You will need to log in with whatever your forum username/password is.

If you have any trouble getting it to work, please reply to this post. I can't do much as far as Tapatalk goes, but I can certainly try.

UPDATE:

That was easier than I thought it would be! We are officially updated and the mods are all reinstalled.

Announcements & Information / FYI: Update of Forum Software
« on: October 26, 2018, 08:08:54 PM »
Hi everyone!

I just wanted to post because I'm hopefully doing an install of the forum software, and it's a bit more of a complicated process than I was hoping for. I have to uninstall all of the mods that are currently installed and then run some kind of an upgrader thing before I can reinstall them...hopefully it won't take more than a day or so. Hopefully I can get it all situated by the end of the weekend.

If you have any questions or you notice anything that goes funky once I get them uninstalled, please post in this thread.

I agree with @Manu. I think it's generally a good thing that they're doing this. However, I'm on the fence about the reboots that they're doing in order to appeal to those who will go for the nostalgia by using more diverse casts. They know they're going to make money by appealing to those who are in it for the nostalgia, so that's an instant win. Then there's those who may not have been interested in the rebooted shows/movies before but now that they're adding in more diversity may be more interested and will see what's being done with them and draw them in, so that's also an instant win.

But take your Buffy example. Buffy is over 20 years old. There's the movie but the TV show is SO much more well known than the movie is, and everyone loves the cast and the characters and the story that was laid out by Whedon. There's NO reason for them to just recast Buffy, specifically, as a Black woman for the sake of diversity when there's TONS of canon that they could be looking at instead without having to touch on what's already been established and change it up.

So I'm okay with them doing it, as long as it makes sense for them to do it. But I also hope, like Manu, that diversity won't have to be used as a marketing tool any more and it will just happen on its own without it being a ~big deal~ like it seems to be now.

Hi fellow Aquarius! Amethysts, am I right?!?

Hiii!

Haha, yep. XD Except, when I chose the stone for my high school class ring, I didn't like the purple Amethyst stone so I went with some kind of a blue one (I don't even know what stone it was any more) 'cause blue's my favorite color. :P I'm such a rebel. XD

List has been updated!
