1. After BETA Testing possible backup servers due to our main server showing some limited instability, the instabilities on the backup servers proved to be worse. Therefore, we are continuing to use our primary server. (We are currently talking with a couple of furries who offered us some space on a private server. If all falls into place in a timely fashion - before the end of the year - we may move to that.)
2. We have also completely re-built the entire chat system on TNSC. So we now have all new chat rooms, and they seem to be working really well.
3. We have also added the request/rule that encourages proper tagging on TNSC's Adult Gallery. The rule is a simple rule requesting that users tag all art as "art" and all pictures as "photo". We have given all users the ability to tag any submissions, even those uploaded by others, to improve the tagging system. This will also allow the filter system in TNSC's Adult Gallery to work better, allowing users to block certain images either by tag or username.
4. We have removed the "User Favorites" page from TNSC. We will no longer be utilizing the FFA Links to encourage users to fav artwork from any site onto TNSC User Favorites. (Our Adult Gallery does have its own favorites system, plus image voting. All of our galleries have a comment system already in place.) There has been a distinct lack of interest in the (Inter-Site) Favorites System, justifying our reason to close it down. We will be replacing it with an "Art Discussion" Thread on TNSC Forums, where users can share art they like, and why they like it. This will allow us to encourage users to actively post to TNSC's Galleries.
5. The Submission System (README) and Easy Transfer Service engaged. We have added a page to the site that helps users to understand how to submit posts to TNSC. This system is a step-by-step guide, with links to each section stated in each step. For those who are already on other sites, we also have the TNSC Easy Transfer Service. A service that allows users to copy their submissions from any other site onto TNSC. With Easy Transfer: you can have us update your latest submissions once, or have us keep an eye on your other account and add submissions from there to TNSC at least once per week.
6. Back by popular demand - Features on the Homepage. Yes, we now have a "Featured Submissions" section on the homepage of TNSC. These sections will show featured (and/or the latest) submissions for TNSC's General and Adult Galleries. These areas of the site will be updated at least once a week, depending on new content (notifications) and/or the need for admin action for content to show up on the site.
We are also seeking out anyone who would like to submit a (proper) TNSC Header Image. Drako has been using art of his sona and art by his mate - with permissions. But those are "cut out" headers. Anyone can submit a header image, it can be General or Adult, and only needs to be any image with the dimensions of 960 x 200 (in pixels). We have a submission link and form on the main page of TNSC.
