Are you still in contact with her? I miss the texting with Cat ><
I actually think about a new forum. I found a page where I'll want to build one.Originally Posted by Aracely
If I get some ideas and so on it will be a good one
And I remember you in DGD ^^ We didn't chat but I seen you around really often
haha Black Cat singlehandedly kept the onepiece thread alive.
@Antiheld : I know that she has a fanfiction.net account . I'll see if I can contact her there.
Hi! My name was verduistering on DGD. I've shortened it to verduister to match my LJ account name~
Some of you might know me as "the CharaGray translations girl"
Hi! I was Alice Walker, nice to meet you!
so guys...maybe you'll watch this.
It's not the same and the first one, so please be clement^^
I'm there !
Wow, that was fast! So that new forum is called DGDivinity.
Unfortunately, the way the new forum is at the moment, I'm going to have to pass on it. There are things I like about the setup of the forum, but the things I don't like outweigh them to the point where I don't want to join, even despite badly wanting a DGD replacement. It's early days yet, so for all I know things might change, so I'm going to mention a few of those things in case it's helpful.
- The colour scheme is light grey on a dark grey background. It's not very readable at all. I can't envisage spending long browsing a site with that sort of colour scheme, because it would be uncomfortable.
The main problem by far is the rules of the new forum: http://dgdivinity.yourme.net/n2-r-u-...ead-this-first
By contrast, I don't have a problem with the Mangahelpers forum rules or the old D.Gray-divinity's rules. (You can still see the old DGD's rules at the internet Archive: http://web.archive.org/web/200902110...ity-rules.html)
I don't like those rules. First of all, they're unclear. Rule 1 appears to prohibit any aggressive posts but also "personal insults and critics, the coarseness and vulgarities"...but what does that mean? If it means "No swearing, and no criticism of anyone" I'm not sure that's practical. (And to be honest, some of the old members of DGD have really filthy mouths! They would never be able to follow a no swearing rule.) Rule one also appears to say that French law applies to the forum, but again, it's unclear.
Rules 2 and 6 are written unclearly, are very very broad, and are very difficult to enforce. For example, copyright infringement is illegal, so those rules are saying that none of that will be tolerated by the mods at DGDivinity. This rules out people using things like manga or anime art in their avatars and signature banners. But people are already doing that at DGDivinity now. The piece of art from D.Gray-man at the top of the page, used as the forum banner, contravenes that rule, which means the mods have already broken the rules themselves. The Fan Art subforum there says that people can post their own fan art or fan art they like there, but going by the forum rules, they will be in big trouble if they post fan art that isn't theirs and they don't have permission to post.Quote:
Under those rules, we would also be unable to discuss recent chapters of D.Gray-man, given that scanlations infringe copyright and rule 2 prohibits anything which could be seen as promoting illegal activity. It would also be impossible for things like the scanlations of profile pages from the Character Book to be posted.
This rule is the worst, IMO. As we all know, the net really isn't a totally anon space or somewhere free of laws, but the phrasing there is not welcoming to members, and reads as a threat.Quote:

At first, thanks for your opinion and the tips
1. The font color
Dou you think a white one is better? I don't want to use colours like red or blue in the main texts. For headlines it's okay of curse =)
2. The Rules
Wow, thank you for the link to the old DGD-Rules =)
But I have to be honest. English is not my main language. This is one of the reasons, why the rules sadly aren't perfect.
I need some help with it and I'm really thankfull, that you're so honestly.
You're right with the forum header o.o
Man, it's really cognizable, that this one is my first forum
If I'm writing, where I get it, is it possible to take the DGD-Rules for DGDivinity? What you think?
Edit: I have to say that the rules were specified by the forumhoster
Edit2: I'm not able to make that DGM-Translation-Things because I don't know how and were to get. Thats one of the topics I need help with a special moderator who wants to manage that

I think there are probably a few options for the best forum readability. Black text on a white background can be good for some people, as can white text on dark backgrounds. (I agree, blue or red wouldn't work...)
Ohai guys! I was Artemis on DGD. More of a lurker, but was there every day for months before it died. I am the only fan of DGM that I know of here in New Zealand, so it is nice that I have somewhere else to go and lurk haha.
I had the same username Kalyra on DGD.
I didnt post much on there.
Nice to meet you~ ?
yikes it closed down
Ahh? DGD has been down for awhile because of lack of payments? .. D: Awww... It was my first DGM forum to join before coming here. Lots of nice people over there. (I was dgraygirl, or something like that over there.)
Welcome to all the survivors to this place! ^____^
