Title: MangaRaiders.com 2nd Anniversary !
Post by: Hasith on July 07, 2009, 02:47:39 AM
So now its 2 years since we ve started MangaRaiders.com !

We have come through 2 long years which had given us plenty of hard and happy times. But without regular members who ve come to forum daily it would have been impossible. So thanks for our memebers who spend time here and contribute for the growth of our community !

Its not easy to keep a Manga ANime forum going unless its a roleplaying forum. Only few would service to past their first full year. Its harder when we narrow down things to Manga Artists and writers. So its great to see that we have serviced and also growing day by day. This is an uphill journey and we are not doing it like a 100 meters track and  field event.

MangaRaiders is a place for people who has a passion draw or write / create  Manga and Anime where they can meet, share their arts, take advice , help others and also just to spend some relaxing time. A place where someone can post arts and let the world to see what they can also take friendly advice to improve.

So guys and girls I hope you will have a great time here and also reach your goals in your life too !

Our second birthday...It's a wonderful event for us!

So many stories could be told about it: the way we created mangaraiders, the hard way we learnt how to make it alive...one day, I'll make a manga about it lol

Thanks to all our members and...to Hasitha who had the original idea to create mangaraiders.

Children go through what, in the U.S., is called the 'terrible twos'... where, when they reach 2 years old, they become absolute brats :-) Some of us never outgrow it :-)

Maybe we will work on a new theme, or a new structure this summer. We will have to think seriously about having more strategies to help us keeping the site alive after the holidays.
That's something difficult but linked with the growth of Mangaraiders: far away are the times we could have a free hosting for a small forum lol

LONG LIVE MANGA RAIDERS!!
Title: Re: MangaRaiders.com 2nd Anniversary !
Post by: Corycaly on July 20, 2009, 06:22:03 PM
It's funny and both emotional to see that now we have even a project of "mangaraiders fanzine". Two years ago Hasith and I started  Mangaraiders when I was on a fanzine. The fanzine died and Mangaraiders still lives.

Long life to Mangaraiders!

Speaking of new themes, I'd suggest dumping the black background... it's terribly hard to read lots of text. I've had to switch the standard blue and white SMF theme on here.

but speaking of printed manga from members, once we get this first one up and running, it will go much smoother after that, and I think we could do at least 4 per year, and maybe reprint a 'best of' thicker book once a year. At some point Hasith can even open a little store link and sell the books.

Post by: AnimeDoodler on July 20, 2009, 10:13:19 PM
that would be awesome ^^
Title: Re: MangaRaiders.com 2nd Anniversary !
Post by: Coryn on July 20, 2009, 10:26:09 PM
still on themes im with tim on the black. maybe try and re-create the bright feeling the old site had.

congrats, Hasith and CoryCarly sempai! :D
Title: Re: MangaRaiders.com 2nd Anniversary !
Post by: Hasith on July 20, 2009, 10:50:17 PM
Well I think think same about this black theme. Changing themes is such a pain but I guess its time to do it. This time we ll try a lighter theme. Reason for the dark theme is that drawings visible better.
Title: Re: MangaRaiders.com 2nd Anniversary !
Post by: KitoOkada on July 20, 2009, 11:05:31 PM
how bout blue! it is dark but brings color to the theme. that way it is still easy 2 c pics w/ but also doesnt look confusing(my opinion u dont have 2 consider)
Title: Re: MangaRaiders.com 2nd Anniversary !
Post by: Tim Wellman on July 20, 2009, 11:18:13 PM
I think the problem is with the crossing over point where text changes from black to white... I'd like to see black text...

Blue is fine, I'd kinda like to see pastels, though... they're very easy on the eye, but can still be pretty... powder blue, pink, pale yellow, etc... but, of course, with a manga theme, grays would not be so bad, like this theme
http://custom.simplemachines.org/themes/index.php?lemma=861

or more pastel

I don't mind if you change the forum colors, but try and leave the classic as an option. I prefer the dark colors. Too many forums blind me with enough light to melt Christmas trees, and I'd rather not have to deal with that on this forum as well.
Title: Re: MangaRaiders.com 2nd Anniversary !
Post by: Hasith on July 20, 2009, 11:39:10 PM
I got few more better templates. I make a topic so everyone can see which one is better and lets see reasons so we can find a good one.

I like the first one Tim but about last one, Co gonna have a fit. She is not into pink for some reason I have no idea why. lol

Maxite : Everyone can pick themes they like even this one after we change the main theme. So don't worry about it.
Title: Re: MangaRaiders.com 2nd Anniversary !
Post by: Tim Wellman on July 20, 2009, 11:54:26 PM
Yep, well a theme with grays might fit the 'manga' idea well.

And yep, you can go to your Profile and click the Look and Layout Preferences and choose a few themes now... Hasith is just talking about changing the default theme
Title: Re: MangaRaiders.com 2nd Anniversary !
Post by: KitoOkada on July 21, 2009, 12:00:48 AM
so do u mean that we will be able to change our own profile color?
Title: Re: MangaRaiders.com 2nd Anniversary !
Post by: Hasith on July 21, 2009, 12:50:43 AM
Well not just the profile color but the whole theme. We has a yellow-blue one before and there are 2 original themes too. You can pick any of them.
Title: Re: MangaRaiders.com 2nd Anniversary !

SWEET!
Title: Re: MangaRaiders.com 2nd Anniversary !
Post by: Coryn on July 21, 2009, 11:43:18 AM
yeah i like the fact we can use the old theme. so people like tim can still use the older yellow blue theme with the black lettering
Title: Re: MangaRaiders.com 2nd Anniversary !
Post by: AnimeDoodler on July 21, 2009, 03:30:10 PM
that sounds great ^^
