Singer, I validated you by the way
You can jump right into the discussions--there are some special features we want to do that everyone should give feedback on as staff.
Things are moving along well on the forums--I've successfully tested a currency system, so now people can have proper shops! You can charge for making dolls, graphics, etc(obviously within reason). There also will be a special staff shop too for things like username changes and special staff offerings. All proceeds would obviously go towards contests and events!
Also, there is a forum newsletter in process. This will hopefully pan out to be member-run, with your own special forum and everything to work on articles for it.
Images are being updated and changed as we speak, new forums have been added(contests, a general art forum for anyone who does other work, like photography, pixel art, etc), and forum descriptions and mods are being updated every day.
