Due to some serious technical issues with our forum, we decided a reboot was in order. PhpBB just did not have the anti-spam and moderation supports we needed.
Consequently, we’ve now set up shop with a new fourm via ForumMotion, which the Doctor has assured me should not suffer the same issues. The original forum is being wiped as we speak, so you’ll need to recreate an account there. The URL is the same, I’ve turned it into a redirect.
Please bare with us as Doc works to set up the new forum.
I’m making this post to put out there exactly what is going on with the forum. You can expect things to be changing over the course of this week, as well as the next. Let me give you a rundown on some things:
1.) I will be organizing sections and giving them sub sections. For example, the Video Series Discussion will have separate sub sections for the major Vlogs like Marble Hornets, EverymanHYBRID, TribeTwelve, Dark Harvest, and Caught Not Sleeping. I will need a bit of help finding the major blogs to put separate sections up of, so please feel free to inform me.
2.) I will be tweaking the image files for the template currently being used on the forum. Do not expect changes to the actual look of the site anytime soon, I am simply informing you all. Also, if anyone out there has any knowledge of editing styles for phpbb, please let me know, any help is appreciated!
3.) I am in the middle of writing something quite fun as an intro to the forum. It will be a video, and you can expect that to be up within the month. I say month because I still have to finish tweaking the script and record it. I promise you, it will be well worth the time and wait.
If you can think of anything else that needs to be tweaked, fixed, or Sonic’d, feel free to contact either The Composer or I, we always want to hear from you!!
So, till then….
First off, apologies for the hiatus. Some adjustments to my personal life prevented me from making some much needed updates to the site, but that’s changing now.
Second, a slight format change to posts, going into effect immediately. Previously each post featured the embedded video and a link to the youtube channel. However, the channel link is something I’ve decided is redundant, since it’s easy enough to click through the video to the channel. Instead, the video description (if there is one) will accompany the videos in the posts.
Third, I’ve added a scheduling plug in to space updates out more and make it easier to add them. When there are new videos, there should be posts every 3 – 4 hours.
Fourth, coming in the next few days, I’ll be adding a new page/section for Slender Man games. The page should feature not only links to the various slender man game projects but I’ll try to add posts regarding updates / changelogs to those projects when I become aware of them.
Now then… let the updates begin.
The forum is finally open, barring a few technical hiccups here and there, but bear with us and feel free to join in.
The first epsiode of the SlenderManMythos.com podcast will be online later tonight after I finish editing it and processing it. You’ll be able to stream it online via Youtube or download the file for listening on your favorite device.
I’ll post again when it’s online.
TheComposer would like to congragulate the cast and crew of everymanHYBRID on 2 full years in the Slender Man Mythos, and for very much being one of our “founding fathers”. For those about to… uh… scare the crap out of us, we salute you!
Celebrate the 2 Year Anniversary with an everymanHYBRID marathon!
Tonight, keep an eye on TheComposer twitter, around 8 PM we’ll be having a synchtube EMH Marathon. Come hang out and, hey, maybe we’ll invent a drinking game to challenge TribeTwelve.
Oh yeah, one more thing. It’s quite bare and ugly at this point, but our FORUM is finally set up. Go ahead and register if you like, but it’ll be a week or two before there’s going to be any serious activity.
And we are public. I MIGHT have jumped the gun a bit… half of me is trying to get me to stay up all night and work on getting the vlog pages done. And the other half wants me to sleep.
So, what’s new in this update?
The about and podcast pages are done.
The wiki listings have been consolidated under the resources page, while expanding their scope to include an additional wiki, Slender Man’s “Know Your Meme” page and the Slender Man Mythos TV tropes. The resources page now also links out to a variety of information sources and OOG hangouts.
And of course, posting content like mad.
The next big undertaking will be the vlog pages, and they will take time, so I thank you in advance for your patience.
Making some headway here. Still working some kinks out of the video series pages and there’s a lot to add, but the setup is done enough that I’ve begun posting new uploads. For simplicity, I’m queuing the posts for now, but we’ll see if I keep that pattern in the future.
Videos from March 1, 2012 and onwards will be posted here when I noticed them, with attempts to properly update at least twice a week. You can view a feed of just new videos from the “watch” button on the menu, as well as look for videos from a specific series by clicking the tag with the series name on any post. I’ll have a list of category links in the future that you can use to look up any specific series.
I may eventually go back and produce “digest” posts with either summaries or link lists for that series. But that’s a ways off; there’s still much work to be done.
A curse upon Jquery and WordPress’s distaste for it.
I doubt many of you are going to be seeing this site in it’s current, fragmentary state. If I’ve personally given you the URL in search of feedback, I need no introduction. If you’ve somehow stumbled onto this site, be it through a leak or just to check and see if there’s anything there, well…
I’m the webmaster/creator of this website, aka The Composer. And this is quite obviously, a fan-site for the Slender Man Mythos. I’m currently taking a Web Design Practicum class in university and this is to be one of my projects. I was required to purchase hosting and a domain name and the project was self directed. So I figured why not create a site for something I’m so heavily involved in, something that I wouldn’t mind continuing once the course was over. So… Slendermanmythos.com.
I will continue to add content to this site over time. After an acceptable amount of the features are online, presentable and functioning I’ll start spreading this place around. But for now, mum’s the word. If you want a preview of what some of the final product will look like, check out the everymanHYRID page for a sample of what’s to come.
