    ANNOUNCEMENT: MerNetwork forum structure has just been updated

    We just made some changes to the forum structure in the hopes of making things better organized and easier to use. Some sections have been renamed, some have been moved, and some new sections have been created. Let us know what you think here!

    Some changes:
    • "Tails in Media" has been renamed "Merfolk Fiction". The section names have been changed and new sections have been added, so there are now places to discuss movies & tv shows, literature, games, mermaid stuff on the internet that isn't news stories about the merfolk community, and a catchall section for other fiction.


    • The section "Mers in the News" has been moved to the community section.


    • "MerNetwork Challenges" has been moved to the miscellaneous section. "Everything Else" was also moved there, and it was renamed "All Other Mermaid Stuff".


    • "Introduce Yourself" has been moved to the Community section.


    • "Help and Support" and "Feedback" have been merged into "Help, Support, and Feedback"
    • "Monofins" has been moved to "Making Tails and Accessories".





    Right now no threads have been moved, except for when "Feedback" was merged into the section now called "Help, Support, and Feedback". I'll probably try to move some threads to new sections in the future. For example, I'd like as many of the silicone tailmaking threads to be collected under the new subforum for silicone tailmaking as possible. I think that will be helpful to people who want to learn from other members.

    I'm sorry, I don't understand your question. Are you asking what will happen to your tailmaking thread for example? I'm planning to move all the threads about silicone tailmaking into the new silicone tailmaking section. You can keep using the same thread. You don't need to make a new one.

    So are we not doing a section anymore for sharing mers in the news? Kinda confused about the purpose of changing it to public perception?

    Also not sure why change tailmaking to making tails. lol everyone calls it tail making. I like the idea of subsections though.

    Looks good.

    I think he means will the old links still work to point to things. There's a lot that was laid out in the tailmaking reference guide. will moving it around break those links

    After discussing with Winged Mermaid, some of those changes were reversed. We're still deciding on what things to change.
