Recently a few things have been moved around and new areas created to fit the demand on the site. This should help make the site a bit more organized and house the correct forums for the topics that are becoming more active on the site.
What has happened:
A Coding section has been birthed on the site. This section now hosts topic containers for Released Scripts and Themes, Python Support and Blender Code and Development.
News and Discussion has evolved into Latest News and Blender and CG Discussions. These two have some overlap, but there was a need to allow strictly news and headlines to have it’s own home. Allowing Blender and CG Discussions to thrive.
With this we have moved off-topic to the bottom of the forum. Off-topic is still an active section of the site, though just not a predominantly featured as the second forum on this Blender site. Same thing applies though to play nice and hug each other often.
Decided to join Twitter…. You may now find Blender Artists on twitter at http://twitter.com/blenderartists
Continuing the Social Butterfly drive… With Facebook looking to do away with the “group” format of pages, Blender Artists group is becoming Blender Artists Page here at:
In the next few days if you have a moment please visit us over there. The site will be ramping up on updating and publishing feature threads and articles there. In addition we will be featuring Forum Gallery images over there.
Thank you for voicing the need for the above sections and the crew here will continue to work on further upgrades and react to the growth of the site. BA is approaching 100k users with 200+ new activations each day!
So thank you again for hanging with us on the site and see you on the next one!
Wes and the BA Crew
p.s. With us moving a bit of things around. If you see something in a place it should not be. Just please let us know (report post feature) and we will get on it.
p.s.s. The forum banner is coming back and I know we’ve been saying this for a bit. Talk on it weekly and it is getting closer and should be pretty sexy.
