I like that idea as well. I'm not sure how hard and time-consuming it is to code in a different theme for the forum, but the premise of devoting a week to celebrating his other works sounds appealing.

I added a reference to the introduction thread on the News (next to the "Forum Rules"). Given that some people don't see the text rotate, though, I decided to try it out on the first announcement, with the "Welcome to the Abbey" text. I'm thinking we'll let it stay there for a while and see what happens. It looks a little lengthy, but maybe it will work out. Let me know what y'all think.

I personally thought it might be nice to see different actual themes. I actually proposed the idea of making the "parchment" background blue, like a stormy sea, for the Castaways event. However, Matthias is wary of trying to change the physical appearance of the board; he doesn't want to risk messing anything up. I've never run a SMF forum before and have no idea what it entails, so I think it's best to defer to his judgment. At any rate, as he pointed out, most of Mr. Jacques' tales take place in the past, where the "aged parchment" theme is more than appropriate.

That said, though, anything to increase recognition of the other works sounds like a good idea. We could make this a part of the next Brian Jacques Day (which is already an official event), or make it a separate occasion altogether, as Corn suggested. I'd appreciate more feedback from the community about this.

^ I always assumed it was to do with the red walls of the abbey, even though it isn't technically the right colouring. Ahh, learnt something new. :p

I noticed that a whole bunch of spammers have been joining during the last few days, and I suspect it has something to do with the fact that the security question when you register ("what was Martin's weapon?") is no longer there.  Could this be re-added?

Great observation, Jukka! :) And I agree. Spammers are a no-no :P

Okay, I just noticed a guest viewing this thread.

I think the language filter has gone crazy. :P

Took a look at it -- I think the period he put in after the "V" is what threw it off. I'm not sure there's much that I can do about it besides editing the topic, or getting rid of that word's censor altogether. I could write Doug (who provided the censor mod that we use) and ask about putting in exceptions, I suppose, but I don't want to put him through extra stress.

The word filter indeed needs help.
