  1. NEW Added a 'New Downloads' button to the top-right of every page (just underneath the 'blue bar' on the Dark Theme) Thanks Cammy for the suggestion CHANGED Fixed badges missing icons WHAT WE'RE WORKING ON Revised site themes for clarity New site logo and e-mail notification branding Site documentation (recently published a small post on how to create custom 'streams')
  2. Safe is relative to both how popular other landmass mods are and how far you're willing to go to increase likelihood of future compatibility. I've attached one image (high-res source) that depicts how Tamriel will fit together after completion of Tamriel Rebuilt, Province: Cyrodill, Skyrim: Home of the Nords, Lyithdonea, Anthology Tomb of the Snow Prince, and Roscrea. Sizes sourced are from LadyN and ArthomdeusD's maps. Another source for Tamriel Rebuilt planning in particular is their Progress Report page, which shows where there are at - but also where they are planning to build into. I've also attached another image showing some other existing mods that create new landmass. I don't believe we have an updated, near-complete image showing most of the popular mods. The safest way to made a new area (unless you're building something truly gargantuan) is to build new housing estates, etc. within interior cells with a skybox like Mournhold.
  3. In addition to the standard search functionality of the site, there will often be content in which you wish to be able to search on a constant basis. An example of this would be 'Unread content' or 'Content I have started'. For this, we have Activity Streams. These provide you with the ability to set up lists of content based on a criteria that has been given, either by yourself, or user defined. All Activity Stream The 'All Activity' stream which is available in the activity menu by default, will give you a rundown of all activity on the site. Unlike other streams on the site, this will notify you of any new items since viewing the page. You can view this in either a condensed view (one line per item) or the default expanded view you see in the screenshot below. User Defined Streams New Streams Within the default menu structure, under the 'Activity' menu item, you will see a 'My Activity Streams' option. Here you will see any admin defined activity streams, and also the ability to create your own stream (on a per user basis). When selecting to create new stream, you will be presented with the filters you wish to use for your new stream. Here I have created a new stream for a new housing mods uploaded to the site. Note you can select the cog icon at the side of any content type to select specific items under that content type. In this instance, a specific category. Any new streams that are created, are then shown under the 'My Activity Streams' menu, beneath the default set of streams. Editing Existing Streams When viewing any existing streams, you will see a set of filters at the top of the page, in which you can change to your liking. Changing these will change the data shown in real time. Often there are times where you will wish to save a small change to an existing stream, rather than creating one from scratch. After making an edit to any of the filters, you will see a save button, which will then allow you to create a new stream from your changes.
  4. ADDED Added Contact Us option to the Support tab Whilst it's at the bottom of every page, it pays to be thorough CHANGED Changed site header size for both desktop, as well as mobile viewing Replaced logos to the Dark Theme and Light Theme, as well as several other locations Please let me know via the Contact Us button (bottom of the page) if you notice any issues (cut-off logo, scaling issues, etc.) either on the site, or in other locations (mobile app logo, notification e-mails, external embeds, etc.) These logos are likely just placeholders until we prepare a full social kit. If you know anyone with a flair for graphic design, please let us know. EXPERIMENTAL Added a 'Source' button to the toolbar that allows users to edit the HTML of their posts Does not bypass restrictions Desktop interface support only; not supported on mobile / tablet Added a 'Spoiler' button to the toolbar, so you can post quest secrets for your mods without spoiling it for those that like a challenge
  5. Morrowind Discord Servers Morrowind Modding Community Partnered community Tameriel Rebuilt Associated to the Tamriel Rebuilt mod Project Tamriel TES3MP OpenMW Associated to the OpenMW project Elder Scrolls Discord Servers List of Discord servers associated with The Elder Scrolls (TES), but not specifically Morrowind-related: Realm of Creation TelShadow's Discord community.

  10. NEW / CHANGED User Engagement Added badges functionality (indicative of quality of engagement) Badges are predominately automatically awarded for crossing various thresholds for the community to discover Some badges may be manually granted by staff, or given out by event co-ordinators Certain badges may allocate additional points towards ranks Badges will be flagged as 'Rare' if they are held by less than a certain percentage of the user base Added ranks (indicative of quantity of engagement) These are separate systems from 'Reputation', which is only driven by user-to-user interaction Improved spam management capabilities Improved spam defence scoring Introduced post trip words e.g. a post containing the word 'cbd oil' might be held for moderator approval as it's more likely to be a spam post; but if it's just an adult themed mod - it'll be allowed through (provided it's tagged correctly) We've configured a few already, but cannot communicate what they are as they are part of our spam defence - but please let us know if you have any issues with posts / content getting stuck in the mod queue whilst we're piloting this feature. We do not intend to use this for censoring purposes at this time, just spam detection - but please continue to stay across the rules and terms of service in case this is to change (however we will endeavour to communicate any significant changes in this regard). Added the ability for moderator messages to be optionally visible to users (e.g. see this file example) Administrator post highlighting (e.g. see the frame around this post and the 'Administrators' badge) At the moment, this is global across the platform. Whilst this might be slightly annoying when we might not be posting a reply or anything from an 'admin' perspective, but just a normal comments or review on a mod, I'm hoping this will be offset by the fact our staff compliment is very small at present. Later on, we'll try to extend the functionality to only be visible in certain areas, or selectively for certain posts (i.e. optionally 'in character' as an admin, otherwise just posting as a 'normal user') Site health dashboard for administrators Better push notifications functionality, permitting push notifications to still be received even if the site isn't open or your device is asleep A reminder you can edit your notification preferences from the Notifications Settings page, including a global toggle for enabling / disabling push notifications at the bottom (after it's enabled, you'll still have to turn it on for the notifications you wish to receive via push) Added 'Most Files' section to the Top Leaders tab on the Leaderboard page Added 'upload chunking' functionality when uploading large mods; which should help prevent timeouts, memory issues, and general frustration Adjusted Light Theme Enabled fluid width for the Light Theme to align to Dark Theme Adjusted thumbnail sizes in Downloads section to align to Dark Theme Changed login to require your e-mail, rather than e-mail or display name Allowing users to log in with a display name can represent a security weakness for our community because display names are public information and malicious users may attempt to login to multiple accounts with common passwords until they find an account for which the passwords work. Labeled the button on the screenshots section of Downloads for uploaders that selects the 'default image' to display for the mod 'Primary', so it's function is slightly more intuitive (previously had no corresponding text) REMOVED 'Similar Content' block from the bottom of the Downloads page
  11. Too many contacts from agents of Sithis! MODIFIED: Disabled Contact Us functionality for non-logged in users to help prevent spam support threads EXPERIMENTING: Pushing new mods to #published-mods on Morrowind Modding Community Discord Using a bit of a paperclip and rubber-band solution at the moment. If it proves promising, will formalise it as a properly supported function and mature it. Donation system and subscription plans Whilst the site expenses are extremely low at present (we're currently only averaging ~1k monthly downloads) and I'll be sustaining the site regardless, I've added a donation option and subscription plans. The subscription plans give no perks, other than a cosmetic green name. This is intended, as we do not wish to paywall functionality, meter downloads, etc. Any money provided by members will be used exclusively for site-related costs (hosting, domain renewal, etc.), unless otherwise notified.
  12. This Sunday, June 20, at 5 PM GMT, @Vidi_Aquam will be going on Danae's stream to show off the server. They'll be playing on it and talking, so anyone is welcome to join in-game or stop by the stream and say 'hi'. Here is the link to Danae's twitch channel: https://www.twitch.tv/DanaePlays
  13. CHANGED: Closed a possible XSS issue involving light-boxed images
  14. MODIFIED: 2FA now mandatory for Administrators, in order to better protect the site and your personal data. A reminder that users may also enable 2FA on their accounts, via the Account Security page.
  15. ... oh wait, it's actually 'yes' here. MODIFIED: Adjusted thumbnails for Downloads area screenshots to be a wider aspect ratio (Dark Theme only, for now..) Shifted task management triggers to a CRON job, rather than web-traffic trigger Added a free-text section to user profiles to list detailed mod permissions / licensing info:
