September 2016

Post by dubiousdisc »

Hello to all! This is the Monthly Rewind for the month of September 2016!

Shrine Spotlight Discussion - After rounding up some feedback, Shrine Spotlight changes its rules a little bit - now, each round, there is a soft cap of two shrines that can be nominated from each shrine maker. Additionally, if anyone feels uncomfortable about having two of their own shrines compete against each other, you can contact Camy during the nomination phase and have one of them be removed.

Also, as mentioned in the survey results earlier on this year, Shrine Spotlight votes are now hidden for all, revealed only once the poll closes. Hopefully, that makes for a better voting experience! Please avoid discussing with others what shrines you're voting for so as not to skew votes, as that'd defeat the purpose of this. Other changes in the Shrine Spotlight system have been discussed above under Announcements.

Shrine Spotlight
The winner of September 2016's Shrine Spotlight is Valkyrie, a shrine to Rose from The Legend of Dragoon! Congratulations, Lethe!

Events and Marathons
The Construction Zone Challenge is still ongoing and will continue until December!
The Shrine Revamp 2016 continues until the end of October.
Upcoming: Little Bits, a monthly activity program centered on minor fixes.
And a shoutout to Megan's Pokémon Gym Leader marathon, ongoing until December!

Flash News
  • The "hide" BBCode has been added to the forums: You may have seen it on other message boards as the spoiler toggle. It hides the content behind a box that others can toggle (good for optional additional info and lenghty discussions of spoilers).
  • "center" has been around for a while, but has now been added to the editor too.
  • You can now quickly access your bookmarks by clicking on "View Bookmarks" at the top right of the forums. Use it to keep track of useful topics or topics you still want to reply to once you have time, rather than immediately after reading them.
  • Also, in case you had missed it when it first came out: did you know there is an Amassment chatroom? If you didn't, we hope you'll join us! See here for more information (you'll need to be logged in to view this topic).
That should be all! See you again next month.
