Beginning on August 1, 2017 all free accounts will have the same avatar size as all paid accounts. This means you will be able to upload larger avatars on that day if you have a free account and this will no longer be a paid perk.
So we've made some changes to the franchise forums.
I looked at which franchises were on the front page and which were sub-forums and have thus changed them accordingly.
Star Wars got to stay on the main page because of Rogue One coming out in December.
Star Trek got moved to the main page because of Star Trek Beyond, it's 50th anniversary, and upcoming television series.
The DC movie forum got renamed to DC Media and was moved to the main page because of Suicide Squad.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe forum got renamed to Marvel Media and got to stay on the main page because of Doctor Strange plus the upcoming Netflix Marvel shows and the new season of Agents of SHIELD in addition to the planned X-Men TV series.
Harry Potter got moved to the main page because of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
(Animation Station remains on the main forum due to the constant release of new animated films)
I have also closed due to inactivity the Middle-Earth Tales sub-forum. The sub-forum might be re-opened if a new film set in the universe is made (it's the reason we're keeping the Fast and Furious forum alive even though it's dead of convos).
I also went ahead and changed the descriptions of many of the franchise forums to better reflect their status.
We have updated the site to 4.2.0! We are happy that we're finally live with this update for numerous reasons. Please note there may be some bugs so please don't hesitate to submit a support ticket or to PM Water Bottle/Telemachos.
Please note of the following changes:
[*] Autoembedding is back. No longer having to manually put stuff in if we support automatically embedding it!
[*] Reactions instead of just likes. ALL REACTIONS ADD ONE LIKE POINT TO A USER'S LIKE COUNT. EVEN THE CONFUSED REACTION. All reactions count towards your like limit. I guess it's a reaction limit now.
[*] Clubs are live. Anyone can create a club and they'll have SOME moderator privileges over that club area. I've created some clubs for popular franchises. If you wish to take over the club and have a clean record (no recent warnings or suspensions), let me know. Please know site rules still exist and violating these moderate privileges will lead to your club being taken away from you. Please one club per franchise unless you can justify it's own existence. Clubs don't have to be related to movies.
[*] Franchise forums will close soon since clubs can take the place of it.
