Image We're onto big things here at Merqury City, and with the new game coming up we thought it was time for some reworking of things here at Merq! So we've got a brand new site index page with a ton of new features (you're probably looking at it now) and we've realigned the forums so that things are a little more even and no forums are forgotten. Exciting stuff!

More after the break.
---

Along with the new index page, we've also rearranged the forums so that a new forum for Merqury City Index News is available, with the ability for users to read and respond to the latest news on Merqury City and the SSX Community as a whole. We'll use this as a clearing house for news about SSX in General, stuff about the community and news about the site. Post your responses here in this forum and respond to the latest SSX happenings.

We've also moved the SSX Fan Art & Fan Fiction forum much higher up on the forum row so that it will no longer get lost at the very bottom of Grav. We've also moved the SSX General Discussion into the same category to combine all SSX "General" categories and also put all the games in their own category without cluttering it up with the General Discussion.

Likewise, two of our members have been promoted to moderator status to help vix and I with the increase in traffic, as well as a reward for their long service to Grav. Bakalhau and Yeti are now moderators with full mod duties and privileges. We'll talk more about this in the next few days but congratulate them on their new awesomeness!

Big changes at Merqury City! Post your thoughts below! :D

Wed Aug 03, 2011 7:37 am

Ooooh, shiny. I usually bypass the main page and go straight for the bar (I have Bar bookmarked), but I like it. I like it a lot.

Wed Aug 03, 2011 7:50 am

You should give bakalhau as much credit as me. He's the one who saw that the time was right for the site to be updated, and pushed me to do it. Without him motivating me I'd probably have never done it. :china

Thanks, I will fix that today. I'm also going to make the page headlines link to the topic as well, so that it makes it more obvious where to go if you want to discuss the news.

I may also merge the news topic with the global announcement since they are kind of the same thing. But I'm not sure if news articles will still show up on the index if I make them global announcements since at that point they are "removed" from the forum where they were created. :??? Good question, stuff to test. :lol

Yeah, that was sort of the point to redoing it, most people just skipped the index on their way to the forum. The new page is a microcosm of the entire site, the way it should be to better entice people to join. :)

Wed Aug 03, 2011 11:32 am

Much much more current; love the update!
Can't wait to see the theme take over the whole site.

Btw, I still think you need a welcome to the site
video somewhere, gondee... *HINT HINT* ;) :D :yes

Wed Aug 03, 2011 11:44 am

I'm sorry Gondee. But this is the MOST AMAZING upgrade ever! Man, with that frontpage, you gotta be ready for a lot of new members. It also loads quicker.

Two words: Epic Win.
