Auburn -- Since I already started spitballing things in the chat, I figured I'd write them all out here. Most of these are just suggestions, but it is highly suggested that you do.
RESTRUCTURE THE OOC BOARDS:The OOC boards are placed haphazardly, and the disorganization makes it hard to find anything. I honestly could not find the guidebook board (partially from placement, partially because my eyes have a hard time distinguishing where everything is from the color palette of the layout) and had to use the link at the top.
I suggest restructuring it as such, which will start with what guests should see first.INFORMATION (originally 'OOC')
--> High Rank Prompts (move from Member Hub to News so it's not as hidden)
CHARACTER HUB (new category)
-> Character Creation
-> Accepted (pull out of Character Creation to make it its own board -- don't have sub-sub-boards within sub-boards)
-> Plotters (pull out of Member Hub -- it's a bad spot for it)
-> Adopts (pull out of Character Creation -- it's too confusing of a place, especially if a new thread there makes a newer member of staff think a new app is up without checking the location)
-> Trackers (pull out of Member Hub -- it's a bad spot for it)
OUT OF CHARACTER (new category, don't abbreviate) - put this at the very bottom of the categories list
-> Member Hub
--> Storage Boards
--> Forum Games (moved from General -- get rid of General since it's redundant with Member Hub)
-> Advertise & Affiliate
--> Keep sub-boards as-is
UPDATE LAYOUT AESTHETICS:-> Welcome image (the husky on the second tab of the carousel header at the top) needs background image position adjustments (since you only see the ears -- that's just me nitpicking, though lol).
-> The background image and the board image do not match the color theme at all.
-> The board image repeats (it should be the same size or larger, not smaller)
-> The theme itself seems to be broken in places, though I cannot tell if that's from editing on your tablet/iPad or if the theme was released with these bugs.
-> Clean up the information threads. Rules are just bolded, so nothing important actually stands out to the reader. Picking a simple, clean information table that doesn't clash with the current theme and using it across the information posts is highly recommended.
