    What do you think of these new changes? Does anyone object to a bit of affiliate marketing to help maintain the site?

    Do you think the J-Box ads and the new banners are or are-not relevant to this site?

    I knew that there were new banners up top but then I went to a thread and saw them between posts. It kinda confused my reading flow.

    I agree with this. Is there perhaps a more seamless way to involve ads in threads? I thought maybe text links, but nobody really pays attention to those.

    Maybe instead of the ads looking like posts, they could just occupy space in between? I find myself getting confused mainly because they appear like posts, but they aren't.

    UtaForum Changes for 2015-02-26
    • Help and Advice Thread Creation Unlocked
      This is a provisional change due to several users request after Tutorial & Resource directory was changed to a Resource Manager only subforum. We will test it out and see how it goes.

      Any subforum that has auto thread creation can now have resources made directly from that subforum. Should help eliminate some confusion on how those items are linked.

      The member info to the side of messages has been reworked to show user groups, post count, likes, and trophy points as icons.
    • "Vocaloid" & "Other Synths" Forums Merged
      Since there was limited activity in both sections they have been merged together and mandatory thread prefixes have been added to help filter the different singthesizers.

      A variety of bug fixes, security patches, and speed optimizations. Full patch notes can be found here.
