Welcome to the new MATV for 2012/13!

We have updated our ageing forum to a nice new shiny one. The forum itself is rather nice on it own, and has much better messaging (threaded conversations) but thats not all, we are now offering some amazhing new member features - and yes there free!

New Features for Members:

Member Blogs
Yes, we now offer members the ability to create their own blog here on MATV! You can make it about anything you want providing its not 18+ or illegal.

Gallery
We now have a gallery where you can upload your own pictures to share - either to everyone or just people you choose. And even better, it integrates with your MATV blog so you can include your gallery in your posts as well.*

Chat
We now have a live web chat, its limited to 5 people at a time in the room, but if its popular we'll up the license to more.

Other Website updates / News
We have updated the session code on the main site to work with the new forum, we now have proper session keeping and SSO, you may need to logout and back in once if its your first visit to the new site.
The new forum suite is more than just a forum, many of its special features are hidden at the moment, but over the next few months we will be releasing more features. One of our plans is to fully integrate the 'main/old' site into the new forum site. It already been roughly tested, its just a matter of time. You will notice we now have both DDL Anime and Streaming Anime services on the site. We believe the future is with streaming over DDLs, so we hope you like our new feature!


*Note there is a small bug in the Blog/gallery cross over where the image links are wrong, this is already fixed in the newest update which we will have up soon.

Ah it seems that with the gallery I posted seems to have taken over the front page it would seem. *sigh* I was wondering if it could show random pics from any gallery instead of the reciently posted. Also, it seem that I can't figgure out how to check out the other gallery you've posted unless I check out your profile page.

So what I'm trying to get at is have ti where it's a bit easier to access any of the gallerys a user updates onto the site here. I mean it's a suggestion.

Hi Wolfie,

The front page will just show new updates, I don't know if that can be changed or not - its mainly just to let people see whats new, clearly I'll have to post more Rin pictures to get her back on the front page again :)

To view my Rin gallery, click 'Gallery' on the top menu bar, then click 'Members Albums Category', both your album and mine are in there. The image it uses for that category is just one of the new ones like the front page - so in this case it will use one of yours even tho mine is also inside the same folder.

Yeah I figgured that one out after posting that you know. Although there are some x's here and there that make me wonder if there are somethings that didn't cross over onto the site properly. :unsure:

Yea the little 'X's are because there are some missing icons in the theme, I'll copy them over from another theme - I want to swap out the Fx missing avatar logo as well too.
