  7. Hey All! A quick update here. As some of you may have noticed, there are new award categories! School Superstar - For posts made in school-based forums Local Hero - For posts made in Narrie forums Melbourne Mogul - For posts made in Melbourne forums Frequent Flyer - For posts made in Elsewhere forums Class Champion - For posts made in threads tagged "Class" The Opener - For posts made in threads tagged "Open" that have less than five posts VIP - For posts made in threads tagged "Event" Chatterbox - For posts made in OOC areas of the board Each category has several levels. These would have been released earlier, but I was hoping to find a way to count back all the old posts that have already been made (I can't get it to do it, sorry D:). Also trying to configure it so that your player accounts are also awarded when your character accounts earn post points, giving you a cumulative total and awards based on all your characters. You will need to have the "Player" field filled in on your profile for this to work! There's a few more to come yet, but enjoy these! ❤️

  10. Cause I've always gotta change something about! The adoptables section (Wanted Characters & NPCs) has been adjusted to better showcase the characters we have on offer. It's now split into three sections: Tally's Most Wanted Plot & Job Opportunities NPCs & Other Character Inspiration The major change is in the split between Most Wanted and NPCs & Other. Most Wanted is a shorter list, with four active listings allowed per player, for adoptable characters that have firm plots and are available to be adopted by brand new members to the community. NPCs & Other is a list of all other adoptable characters (or just NPC listings) that may be more vague, or have restrictions on who may adopt them. Plot & Job Opportunities is a new section for staff to list character types and ideas that we would like to see active on the board. Eg. if we wanted a particular position filled at the school, or a character with a certain personality trait for plot reasons, we would list it here. Existing characters that can match the requirements are also encouraged to express their interest for opportunities in this section. New Fields in Wanted Characters & NPCs Two new fields have been added to the listing template. Plot Points: This is a text-entry section to list any solid plot ideas and inspiration you have for the character. What goals you would like your character to achieve with the listed character, how they might interact with others, all that sort of thing. This section is required for a character to be listed in the Most Wanted section. Wanted For: This is a member-entry field to list any characters that the requested character is likely to roleplay with. It's expected that for Most Wanted characters, any character listed in this section will also be mentioned in Plot Points. It provides a quick link for people browsing the listings to see the profiles of the characters they might be writing with, and get a better feel for what is being requested. What about our current listings? The existing listings are fine as they are, and all have been left in the NPCs & Other section. If you wish to edit them and add information to the two new fields, that would be awesome! If not, that is entirely your choice. You may nominate the four listings you would like to have moved to the Most Wanted section by posting below, once you have edited the listing to include Plot Points and Wanted For sections. More information To find out more about the Wanted Characters & NPCs database, we've got a handy new document here:

  12. Hi, it's me again. Missed me? Please delete Justine Harris, Jaqueline Harris (for Evelyn McCarthy-Parsons) and Jewel Richards (for Meadow Richards), thank you. Also would like to suggest for this topic to be pinned.
  13. The profile and plotting links on mini profiles are all weird.
  14. Ho there favourite nerds! You might notice that the editor toolbar looks a bit different, and you would be absolutely right. While putting the spoiler and underline tags back in, I went ahead and added a few other nifty buttons that you might enjoy. (The spoiler tag is that creepy eye button, by the way.) The first two aren't new, but it occurs to me that you may not know they're there! I use them a lot, and they're affectionately named "Big Heady" and "Small Heady". Big Heady is the BH icon in the top row. Highlight a bit of text, and click that button... you'll get something a little like this. Oh hey, it's Big Heady! Small Heady is the sh button on the top row. This will format your text like so: Small heady reporting for duty! Now that we've divulged my secret header styles cheat, let's look at some of the new IC formatting options! The icons are silly small (I suck at icon making, shh!) so we'll fix that in time, but if you hover over the buttons you'll be able to see what they're called. The first is that single speech bubble fellow called "MC Speech". This is for speech given by the main character in a post. Later, we may add AC Speech, or speech for alternate characters appearing in a post, and NPC Speech for characters that don't have their own accounts. Right now, MC Speech formats like this: This is character speech! The next shiny button is MC Thoughts, which is---you guessed it! Thoughts your character is having. This is a character thought! And the last is to help handle foreign languages. It utilises a colour change to indicate that the language spoken is not English, even if you're conveying the meaning in English words. When you select this button, it will ask you to input the name of the language that your character is speaking in. Once posted, anyone who wants to know what language that character is using only has to hover over the language text! This is in a different language! Ain't that coolio! You don't have to use these formatting options if you don't want to -- however, because they're built into the CSS, they will change with any skins that Tally takes on meaning they will always be readable against the background text. Enjoy, guys!
  15. Oh my gosh, guys! Where is all the time going! Can you believe that on the 17th of November, Tally will officially have been back for one whole year? Our success is, as always, due to the love that you guys put into the site. None of the staff would ever be as inspired to make things happen as we are, without your support. You guys make everything so worthwhile, even the moments I spend screaming at code. Which is what I have been doing tonight, and FINALLY I am glad to say that automatic birthdates now work! In fact, a few changes have been made to the character profiles. Because of this, I would love-love-love it if you could all go and make sure that the information in your profiles is correct! Especially check the blood status and species fields. A look at the changes to the profile form. First thing you'll notice, is a new, cleaner layout for the profile form. We've aimed to highlight what is necessary to submit your character, and what is just for fun. Have a look and let us know what you think! The next thing you'll probably notice is that the date of birth section has changed. Rather than being a date input field, or a text line (for characters born before 1901), all characters can now submit their full date of birth using the separate birth day, month, and year fields. There's also a nifty "true birthdate unknown" toggle. This is for---surprise surprise---characters who either don't know their exact birthdate, or like to pretend it's something else (coughAdelecough). When this is set to "true" (as above) an asterisk will appear next to your character's age. But why change the birthdate system? So you don't have to keep updating your character's age, of course! The profile sheet will now calculate your character's age based on the birthdate you've supplied, compared to the current date. What about the ages that display on posts? I'm glad you asked. The information that appears in the top of your in-character posts is now linked to your character profile. Every time you edit your character profile to change the date of birth, occupation, or other details -- it will automatically update the information in the character account. So you only ever need to update your character profile sheet! Other fun things to come I know a few of you are curious as to when the board-wide plot fun is going to start. At the moment we're holding off on really stepping up the action until we have a sufficient level of characters active and established for it to begin. Although the plot will have aspects that impact characters, it won't take away from the plots that you're creating for yourselves. It's not designed to take over your roleplay, more enhance it with a few curveballs. We're still looking for a few of the roles on the list that would be very useful in making things happen, so give us a nudge if you'd like to volunteer. We're also looking at bringing in a bit more in the way of IC/OOC shenanigans. I've reached out to a few of you in search of ideas, and some of the suggestions have included: IC watch-along (where everyone watches the same video at once and comments in character) Discord RP events Thread Bingo (an OOC challenge to fill a monthly bingo card by starting and completing particular types of threads) We're always looking for more awesome things to do, so if you've got an idea---let us know! You can post a reply to this topic, create a new suggestion topic, or contact any of the staff over Discord. Finally I always love feedback when I post announcements, so please. If there's anything I've talked about in this post that you've got ideas, comments, questions about -- please post! And please post below to let us know if you've updated your character profiles. Looking forward to yet more awesome with my favourite Tally family (that's all of you) Love always, Your Sadri.
  16. Hello my darlings! As always, I've been fiddling with things behind the scenes and maaaaaaay have broken a few things along the way, so I need your help in making sure the information we've got is correct! Can you all please check through the following when you have a moment, and post below to let me know if everything is done and correct? Character Profiles Can you please check through all of your active character profiles and make sure: The account is in the correct user group (some may have been wrongly sorted into the Repository) Click "edit" on each of your character profiles, and adjust the following fields to the correct information: Species Date of Birth / (for those characters born after 1901, please fill in the dd/mm/yyyy field with the exact date of birth if known, otherwise use the text field to enter the character's age) Blood status Player (this is now a member field, and will need to be completed) Job title (if applicable) Year level (if applicable) Thank you guys so much for your help here. I really appreciate it. ❤️
  17. Okay, so. Heres my plan, you should have somewhere the title 'The admin formerly known as Mousie'
  18. Love you Mousie! Tally has been such a huge part of my life, and I can't imagine how I would have turned out if this place haddn't been there. Tally makes me a better person,a nd I love everyone here for it. ❤️
