|A new version of the site is almost here. We just need some people to help do final testing of it and find any bugs we missed.
* Oekaki submissions.
* Scraps system.
* Polls on front page of the site.
* "Preview" button on the comments form.
* Improved search engine (with built-in help). It is now possible to restrict searches to * specific users or categories.
* Now possible to remove your user account without requiring site staff.
* Shorter registration form, doesn't look so intimidating when signing up.
* Password verification is now required when changing your email address.
* Usernames must now begin with a letter, this is to support the development of friendly URLs in the future.
* Some profile page settings, such as your featured submission or gallery snapshot, can now be updated without leaving the page.
* Internal improvements to the bbCode parser, such as not breaking up long URLs anymore.
* Much improved admin tools.
* Several minor visual improvements.
The release-candidate of the new version is available at http://rc.fanart-central.net/ . It runs off the site pictures and database as the main site, so anything you do there will be the same as the main site. Of course, some items in the new version like Oekaki submissions and scraps that don't exist in the old version, will not work correctly on the old site.
You will obey or molten silver will be poured into your ears.
