Nothing major, just pinning (stickying) a few popular topics to the top of boards.  :)

I created a new sub-forum in the animal toy lines section dedicated to 2014 new releases. I also created one for the 2013 threads. I'll add a new sub-board annually. Should make it easier to find these popular topics.

Looks good and it allows easy navigation. These threads on new releases will often grow over months and so it's good if they are easily found at a later time, too! :)

There has been a major change behind the scenes - we have moved to a new and improved server.  C:-)

I've added a right sidebar, to match the dinotoyforum. I also removed the forum chatbox. It was a bit of a security risk (that's why I deleted the same feature from the Dinotoyforum), and it wasn't being used anyway.

I have merged the announcements board and the Rules/Feedback/FAQ boards into one single 'Forum business' board. The boards were overlapping in scope which was a bit confusing.

I've added a board in the reviews/walk-around section for PNSO:
http://animaltoyforum.com/index.php?board=50.0

I was sure I saw some walk-arounds of PNSO models already posted on the forum, but I could only find the rhino. Am I misremembering?

I have been thinking about others that can maybe have their own line. Perhaps one of us can go through and see if a particular manufacturer has been represented a lot and warrants a new section?

The following might warrant it:
Play Visions
Sega
Maia & Borges
K&M International (incl K&M Wild Republic)
Cadbury (Yowies)
Takara Tomy A.R.T.S. [although this last one could be combined with Yujin since the former bought out the latter and re-released some sets]

Do you mean for reviews or 'New for...'? The New For boards are for new releases, not acquisitions.

I've installed a 'mentions system' so adding "@" as a prefix to a member's name now notifies the member in their profile and by email (the latter is optional, you can change this in your profile settings).

I'll test it on... @bmathison1972

Did it work!?

I think they mean in the 'Reviews and Walk-arounds section'. Currently, SEGA and Bandai reviews are in the Other/Misc section, but I can move them into new board. That's easy enough for me to do... but before I do, @Beetle guy, are SEGA and Bandai connected in some way or shall I create a separate board for each?

I rejigged the main menu. Nothing major, but if you notice something has moved, this is the explanation.
