Howdy folks! Sorry it's been a while, and a huge welcome to our many new members!
I'm ending my hiatus, and as a start, I am going to take a look at SporeHaven and change a couple of things. But do not fear! The group shall remain the same as before
The folders are going to be reorganized again (I will take the liberty of moving everyone's submissions. Nothing is getting deleted
as long as it is Spore-related! I will also be taking a look at permissions and such, as well as user activity.
I am going to try and familiarize myself with the group settings and such. Any changes I make will be updated onto this journal, to keep you all in the loop of things!
If anyone has any suggestions for potential features and changes, please feel free to message me!
I would also like to take a moment to thank
for sticking by and taking care of this group while I've been away
: Adding & Improving descriptions for foldersFolders
: "Downloadable .png's" is now a master-collection of .png's that members can share and downloadWhy merge it into one folder? To promote more arty-submissions, and also there's going to be several dedicated folders, and to have multiple .png folders will cause a mess. However, if it is a popular opinion to separate the .png folders again, it can be done.Folders
: New folders; "Featured", "Scenes and Landscapes", "Microorganisms", "Flora and Plants", "Aquatic Life", "Animals and Creatures", "Sentient Beings", "Buildings and Structures", "Vehicles and Transport", "Space and Empires", "Mechanical", "Screenshots", "Fan-Art", "Animations", "Tutorials and Guides", "Templates", "Downloadable .pngs", "GA Props", "Modded .pngs", and finally, "Adventure .pngs"Folders
: New categories finished, and submissions placed accordingly. If anything seems out of place, let any of us know.Members
: Users are no longer required to be approved before joining - membership is automatic! And shall remain so as long as we continue to have no issues with members
However, if the automatic feature proves problematic, membership shall revert back to 1 vote to be accepted.Members
: All members can submit artwork to ALL folders, excluding Featured. 1 vote from a moderator is required for artwork to be accepted - this is to help control flow, and prevent users submitting masses of content into the wrong folders.Submissions
: Non-members can now also suggest artwork. While we'd prefer submissions to be from members, we'd like to keep our group open. But remember! Membership no longer requires any voting. Non-member submissions do still require 1 vote for their artwork to be accepted, and may only submit one artwork per day.
