Updates about what's going on with the website.

New Forum Design + Promotions

by Skalor on Mon Sep 12, 2011, 12:24am

Hey guys

I'm glad to see people are enjoying the new Forum design. Check out the new Forum Tips i've just updated which explain some of the updates.

In less than a month I will be moving to London and doing full time work, this is why I've redesigned both the website and forum. These few weeks would probably be the last opportunity I'll ever have to put 100% effort into improving the AVA Movement. Don't worry I'll still be around though!

The site means a lot to me (as I'm sure it does for many of you) because it provides happiness for other people. Simple things really can go along way. As well as fuelling our AVA needs its a great place to chat and share passions with like-minded people. For some it provides great inspiration and advice that we all sometimes need. I can't think of any other hobby I could have chosen that would affect so many people. Thank you everyone who's made this work, It's definitely given me a lot to be happy about.


Promotion

It's quite clear with many of the staff growing up and working we need others to fill the gap. We need moderators who update the website more than anything. The staff agree that Samir0810 has everything it takes for the role. In a very short space of time he's shown a passion for updating fans and doing projects off his own back such as the Full Love Concert Movie. We would like to make more promotions but we're waiting to see how things pan out. Remember actions speak louder than words.

Don't be mistaken in thinking I was the only one bending over backwards this past month, AirwavesRunner has also been working on something special for The AVA Movement. He has however had a major setback on his project. I'll leave it upto him if he want's to keep a secret for now or not. We also have to thank AvA-Owen for starting up the successful podcasts!


New Forum Posts on the Website

I will still be working on changing the websites 'New Forum Post' widget that so many have criticised. For now perhaps use the 'New Forum Posts' button at the top of the forum which does exactly the same job if not better. If there are any other issues people think need addressing please post them in suggestions.


Helping The AVA Movement

If you want to help the AVA Movement spread then please use the Facebook and Twitter buttons on the website to spread content with friends interested in AVA. Most importantly the Google +1 will increase the google page rank, you don't even need a Google+ account to hit these buttons, Gmail for example is fine.

Thank you both fans and AVA.

Other people for possible new moderators in my opinion:

Joey/Astrophysics
Tyler/Tyler44
AarunFast




All 3 are nice, helpful, and post a lot.


Oh and your "actions speak louder than words" comment, some of my favorite lyrics ever:

"If actions speak louder than words, I'm the most deafening noise you've heard."

Thank you very much guys :) I guess I'll just keep doing this for fun, 'cause that's what keeps me here :) Really love the forum.

I see some people up here have been like "nominating" other people for the mod job, so I feel I should say I agree Tyler44 would be a great one.

And also Matty, is it top secret or can you tell me, maybe by MP, what's AirwavesRunner doing? I'm really curious now haha.

i don't really post much, but i say tyler44 should be a mod too. he seems to be very informative and brings a lot of banter to the forum, even if it's mainly about rape ... haha

Must admit that signature is getting annoying :P
