Update #4: Staff, Mobile Nav, Theme/Color Switcher


Recommended Posts

Hello Haveners!

 

The staff team has been busy quietly working behind the scenes to get some much needed work done towards our goals for 2021!  We have quite the list of changes and improvements to discuss with you guys.  For the next coming weeks, I'll be posting various announcements going over a couple of things at a time, so that we don't overwhelm the community with too much information at once.  Keep checking back to see what's new and what's coming!

 


 

Staff Changes

Quite a few of you have noticed this change already as we started rolling it out at the end of 2020.  Because our community continues to grow and the Forums become less the main focus and just another feature on our website, the administration has decided that it was long overdue for a team overhaul to follow suit.  We've had the same structure since Art Haven was created all the way back in 2012 more or less, just adding and removing titles as needed.  As the community stands now, this caused a lot of confusion on who to go to when there was an issue not related to the forums, resulting in delayed assistance as everyone was constantly redirected.

 

Forum Moderators

Instead of having several different kinds of forum moderators, they now fall under the same title named as such.  Art Shop Moderators, Mature Moderators, and Miscellaneous Moderators were combined under this new staff group.  Forum Moderators are just that, they moderate the forums only.  If an issue or situation happens outside the scope of the forums, their ability to assist you will be extremely limited, if at all possible.  Their moderating duties consist of monitoring and managing all content created with the forums and will no longer include monitoring and managing other areas of the website.

 

Previous moderators in charge of Auctions are currently in a "limbo" status as our development with the marketplace has had to start over.  Community Staff (explained in the next part) will now be taking over Auction related duties, more specifically @Demon for the time being.

 

We also now have a head forum moderator, @Pey who on top of their normal duties will help oversee moderator activity and be a liaison whenever needed.

 

Community Staff

This is a new staff group we created for the purpose of monitoring and managing all content created outside of the forums.  This includes the gallery/images, profiles, status updates, marketplace, etc.  Simply put, if it's not related to the forums, these are the guys you should look to.  They will now handle the extra overhead that was looming over our forum moderators before and will have the ability to better assist members when appropriate.  Just like the restrictions with Forum Moderators, if an issue or situation happens outside of their scope (within the forums), their ability to assist you will be limited and you'll find yourself redirected more than likely.  

 

Administrators

We'd like to formally announce that we have a new website administrator.  Please give warm congratulations to @Baah on her recent promotion from a community staffer!  She will join the rest of the administration as they handle the more bigger picture elements of running a community.

To wrap up the staff changes, be on the lookout for applications to open soon as we look to fill our new positions!

 

Mobile Navigation

We have updated the mobile navigation menu, organizing the links better and adding a new Help tree to find important things easier when browsing Art Haven on mobile.  We also moved all icons into the menu itself as the top bar of the mobile site was getting cluttered with all of the different options.  Now, only the website color changer(eyedropper icon) and revert button(undo icon) will show in the mobile top bar.  (The revert button will only show if you have a custom color selected.)  The light/dark mode switch(moon), quick content creator(plus sign) and search(magnifying glass) are now located under your information when you open the menu.

 

A link to access your wallet from mobile is now listed under "My Account".

Theme Changer / Color Switcher

The ability to switch between light and dark mode and choose a custom website color is temporarily disabled until we fix a bug.  This update will be coming soon and we'll let you know when it does.  I apologize for the inconvenience.
