OOC Hey! It's Ruki! :D Been workin' on a new skin, which is why I haven't posted much, and it's finally done! Mostly anyway. Change it to Umber Fields and you should see all the fun. There are bound to be a few kinks in the display, so please tell me if there's anything wrong, or if something just looks odd to you, like if the font's too small. :C I'm thinkin' it might be. Staff ppl should pm me with 100x100 icons. Also the mini-profile circle images are 125x125. I thought they were 100x100 at first, but no, I forgot about the circle border edits. |D Couldn't have gotten it done without the codes from the people in the credits, so silent shoutout to them. Staytuned for more weird updates. Might do some re-arranging of the boards. Anywho, hope you like it!
OLD: 4/04 Ruki says: NEW SEASON! Spring has started! We might start advertising places again now that midterms are over for all of us, and posting is back up. Not exactly OOC news, but Enheit Alpha Sinead has PUPPIES. If you wanna adopt the last one, the adopt thread is HERE! Ody and Raven have their own rules for this, so read them and adopt a pup if y'all want. SPRANG BRAAAAKE.
2/26/15 WHY HELLO! Guess who it is again. Ruki. I've been busy condensing rules and tips into a handy updated guidebook here on THIS PAGE! with the help of my fellow staff buddies. It's super important to read and make sure you get all the fun info down. The newest rule is about ALPHA ACTIVITY, so be sure to read the Lands and Territories section. The gist of it is that yall leaders gotta post once a week. If you don't POOF. No more land for you. This is a new rule, but if you haven't posted within the next few days and haven't been active in a while, you best get on that 'cause yo' land's 'bout to be snatched.
IC Spring is here at last and the land is beginning to flourish with new life once more. Young animals are plentiful and slowly others are rousing out of hibernation. April showers rain down, and springtime flowers are budding out from their winter beds. SPRING will last from April 1st - June 1st
So I'm sure that most of you are informed of the new update that Proboards is putting out. If not, you can watch this breakdown video here.
From what I've seen, you guys don't love it and to be honest, I'm not too wild about it either. It seems way different than the site is now and I'm not positive all of our stuff will convert properly. However, the update, as far as I know, is unavoidable and all boards will be updated. But we have options. After talking with Imms, we decided on a couple actions we could possibly go through with.
1 || We stay here, on this url, and survive through the update and work through the bumps.
2 || We move to Invision Free boards and convert everything over immediately.
3 || We make an url on Invision Free, but also work with this board through the update, and we use both simultaneously to see which one we prefer.
You guys will vote. We want to hear what you guys are thinking. Personally, I think option #3 is what I'm leaning toward, but nothing will happen without your guys' consent, so don't freak. c: We need to seriously think about the future of this site and the enjoyment of it.
Invision Free is different, I'll tell you that. But there's also a lot of it that's similar to Proboards. It's our best option if we do want to switch over to a different host.However, your input is more than welcome. So please share your ideas! c: We'll work through this together and hopefully figure out something that pleases everybody. <3

I agree with you on the fact that option three seems the best way to go. This way we don't have to panic and move quickly, but either work through the problems or make a nice, easy move over to invisionfree. No panic, no stress. Even though I do not like the looks of v5 at all, we could just be blowing it out of proportion because it is such a big change.

Dakki: Thats what I'm hoping that #3 will do. You guys will be able to see both options and choose which one you prefer. And if we are blowing it out of proportion, the site will still be here to come back to.
Ody: I know what you mean, and it'll be a lot of coding work. However, I do think it's important to see what really is coming in case we really are being all crazy. To clear up option three. Basically, we'll move the site over there and you guys can rp and stuff there. This board will still be here, and we'll be able to use it kind of like a beta version. You guys can test it out, post on it and whatnot, in order to see if you like it. It's not necessarily having two boards, it's just kind of keeping this one as a tester. c:
Or as the other way around and have Invison Free as a tester, either way we can go with. As Immy said below. c:

I think 3 is the best option FOR NOW. I think we should stay on here and RP as we always have. Go through the v5 transition and see how we like it. In the meantime, Kirs and I can work on an invisionfree that anyone can practice on and see how they like it. Just for messing around's sake. And then we collaborate as a site and decide where we want our wolves to live for good.
