    Exclamation Forum Updates & Changes: Please Read (Jul '16)

    Dear members,

    The following changes have been instituted at Anthrogenica:

    1. Successful Installation of Forum Maintenance Tools
    As announced here several weeks ago, we confirm these have been successful and have not affected member functionality.

    2. Administrative Changes
    We have transitioned from a tripartite system (Local Mod, Global Mod, Admin) to a bipartite one (Mod, Admin). Additionally, GTC and Gray Fox are now Administrators.

    3. New Oceanian Section
    This new part of Anthrogenica is within our International Area. Our Moderator BalkanKiwi will preside over it.

    4. Member Subscription Classes
    As alluded to here, we have now instituted three distinct classes (Bronze, Silver, Gold) offering specific member functionality enhancements. A comprehensive outline of these may be found here.

    5. The Atrium
    As alluded to here once more, we are hosting a forum area dedicated to political and religious discussion. This is only accessible to members belonging to any one of the subscription classes above with at least 500 posts who also choose to have access to it. The rationale for this decision is stated here.

    6. The Vault
    Several years ago, our member "Anglecynn" suggested Anthrogenica host an online space for members to contribute, share and view resources pertaining to genetics and anthropology. We have now implemented his suggestion through The Vault, which is hosted on Google Drive. To minimize the likelihood of breeches to both our terms and Google's own policies, The Vault will only be made available to "Gold" users. Detailed instructions on how to access The Vault, alongside our own provisions of use, will be posted within a day.

    7. New Icons
    Slight tweak in case you haven't already noticed!

    8. Donations
    Members have the opportunity to provide one-off donations to Anthrogenica to assist in forum upkeep. Background regarding this will be provided here.

    If members are experiencing any issues with these recent changes, we have opened a Troubleshooting thread to facilitate solving these as efficiently as possible.

    Thank you all for your time.

    Just a quick note to our members - We're intermittently fiddling with the subscription class username colours. I can assure you that your vision isn't going funny.

    -on the top right of your screen, go to your 'settings' tab and click
    -then take a look on the left side of your screen, about half way downish, you find a tab call 'paid subscriptions'
    -scroll down and at the bottom are 2 options for gold, one with access to 'The Atrium', one without (meaning your not interested in looking or joining in on the non genealogical chat)... both cost the same, its just a matter of your preference

    good luck
