Setting
YR TWO | EARLY SPRING
The snow has melted in most places of Caeleste, besides those that are prone to snow throughout all seasons. Birds are chirping, the nice weather bringing them back home from winter migrations. You will also notice many other animals reappearing throughout. Weather temperatures have risen but often a cool crisp air will still bite at coats during the evening and night hours. Enjoy the lovely weather of spring for summer may not be as kind.

  • Member of the Month
    boaz
    Rather new to this large crazy family, Boaz is often seen in the cBox or in Caeleste's discord channel. A rather friendly, outgoing personality, Boaz is not afraid to make new friends and get involved in any plots!
  • Thread of the Month
    let’s play a game
    A touching, heartbreaking, thread. Leonidas and Roxana come to find their beautiful child viciously murdered. This thread can be considered the start of a war as Leonidas will not rest until he finds whomever did this.
  • Couple of the Month
    Vithmiris & Slythe
    Caeleste's resident vampire couple, Emperor Vithmiris and Slythe have offered a rather interesting dynamic to their pairing. While the pair have a tendency for violence, the two also have their tender moments - as fleeting as they are.
  • Character of the Month
    Hassan
    The newly crowned Greeshma Emperor has certainly made a name for himself among many in Caeleste in many ways and has made it no secret his ambitions for the kingdom of Greeshma. We can't wait to see what he does next!
  • Quote of the Month
    Rhiannon
    “Run along back to that mountain in that frozen hell you call home. And next time you come strolling out from between his sheets, I suggest you wash yourself. I could smell you a mile away.”

Caeleste’s New Layout!
[Image: giphy.gif]

After a long wait, Caeleste has not only a new skin but an entirely new layout! Yes, we have commissioned the wonderful Gotham to redo Caeleste and offer a face lift! Eshye has been so kind to help with the transition and make things just right! What is so cool about this new layout is, our original one is still available to you! For those who don’t like change, we got your back!

As you all might already know, with new things come new challenges! Please be understanding if you come across any bugs or things you might not like! We want to please everyone, however that is not simply realistic—despite how hard we try! This lovely announcement will hopefully make the transition as painless as possible. I will state again, the old layout is and will still be available to you!

New Things!

- The cbox is at the top of the site now! However we have an amazing option to select a “Fixed” cbox which is like our old on. Just go to your profile and scroll all the way down and click on the “fixed" option. Look here for directions.

- The OOC and IC News are now visible at the same time alone with the site setting. If you don’t like having that on the page you can always toggle it hidden. Directions shown here.

- Fancy new OTM Display! It moves to a new category after a few seconds. Just hoover over it to stop it! The titles of the OTM are clickable as well! If you wish to hide it, it will hide with the OOC & IC News.

- The Navigation bar is far different and no longer fixed on the page. Be sure to check out all the easy access and the new account switcher. Things are easier to find and far bolder. Be sure to use the navigation arrows on the bottom right of your screen to jump to the Navigation Bar. Directions shown here.

- Battle Trackers! It’s an optional item for those who have not battled but required for those who have! It is a new spot on the profile, shown here. Once that is added it will show on your mini profile, shown here. It can be edited in your profile editor, shown here.

- Avatars are an awesome and unique new shape! Unfortunately, they are a new size and are 250 x 250. The new layout has them positioned so most of them work with this skin. Just know if you change them it could affect how the look on the old layout.

- New and improved land images! Luckily no terrain has changed just another set of images to help with your imagination! We wanted to offer a whole new perspective on the lands without altering their actual descriptions. The old images are still with the old template.

- Important threads are displayed at the top of the cbox and most current posts instead of the actual cbox. They are their own separate piece so they will be easy to find and stand out so no one misses it :D

Changes?

- Most everything functions the same! There are little to know changes to the way things use to be ran! Profiles are similar, threads, posting, ic boards, ooc boards and everything! Most changes are aesthetics and easier accessibility! We wanted Caeleste to look different but not feel different! Please understand should function well and be helpful! Obviously the size in text is larger and the mobile function should be easier and run smoother! Want everyone to enjoy this update but if they are not a fan, no worries! Our original layout is available. We will do our best to keep it up to date as well!

Let us know!

We want everyone to let us know what they think! If you post here, filling out the code fully you will receive 500 Carats! Yes, 500! We want to reward you taking the time to comment on the new layout and let us know if there is anything we need to take in account, add to, change, or fix! We all love you so much and just want to make sure you all enjoy this gift to you!
Be sure to fill out the form below! If you fill out, you will receive 500 carats!

What was your initial reaction to the new Layout? Oh so pretty!!
Your favorite thing about the new layout: I really love the new character profiles! It is really clean and sharp!
You least favorite thing about the new layout: On lower screen resolutions (like mine) the boards shrink and start to cut off tables.
On a scale of 1-10, 10 being the best, please rate the new layout: 9 I really love it, but the tables thing makes it a bit tricker.
Any recommendations, concerns, or comments?: nothing I haven't already written <3

What was your initial reaction to the new Layout? HOLY SHIZ!
Your favorite thing about the new layout:  Its clear and clean. Easy to look out and organized.
You least favorite thing about the new layout:  See below.
On a scale of 1-10, 10 being the best, please rate the new layout:
Any recommendations, concerns, or comments?:  If the default avatar could just be plain? It looks nicer for those so us just wanting to use a bust picture with a transparent BG. Rather than have to edit it and make our own filler? For example, look at Airleas profile. Its hard to get the right 250 x 350 image for the shape. At least fro me. XD Also, I know we have the old skin still but if we keep it and someone sues the new, it makes the ones updating for the new skin look off on the old type deal too.

Your favorite thing about the new layout: refined front page + the new images are gorgeous
You least favorite thing about the new layout:  having the community center thing on other pages (like the shop, census etc) - just feels like it takes up unnecessary space? But only a little.

What was your initial reaction to the new Layout? Ooooo Snazzy!
Your favorite thing about the new layout:  It's new, fresh, and stands out from what I've seen on other sites.
You least favorite thing about the new layout:  Profiles... For example, Andromeda's history, personality, appearance.. the text goes behind the actual layout of the site. I'm not sure if I personally can fix that? Or if it's a site malfunction...
On a scale of 1-10, 10 being the best, please rate the new layout:  9/10
Any recommendations, concerns, or comments?: Really the only issue I have is the text behind the site layout. (might just be a me thing though.)

What’s your name? Gecko
What was your initial reaction to the new Layout? Very nice
Your favorite thing about the new layout: Organized boards
You least favorite thing about the new layout: Love the large everything, but from being on forums for so many years, it seems too large, almost as if I accidentally hit the zoom in my browser or my icons on my computer got switched to extra large. It will just take time getting used to it. Even if I can't get used to it or no one else likes it (which I doubt), it's not like you guys are forcing it on us, we still have the option to switch back which is cool.

 Second thing. I dislike that every time I switch to a new profile I have to re-edit my profile to fix the cbox

What was your initial reaction to the new Layout? OOOOO AAAAAAHHHH
Your favorite thing about the new layout: Clean and easy to access everything. It's organized and pretty.
You least favorite thing about the new layout: Everything looks so big. My tables are all cut off now, so I'm not a huge fan that about 600px is the max table size. I'd prefer if it were about 650px for codes but that's just a personal thing. I'll edit what I have and it won't be a problem moving forward.

Also the text-shadow on the names of threads and usernames on the most recent posts on lands as viewed from the main home page. It's hard to read them when they have such a large text shadow, so maybe make that shadow just a little smaller so that it's easier to read.
On a scale of 1-10, 10 being the best, please rate the new layout: 9
Any recommendations, concerns, or comments?: Maybe fix that text-shadow situation if you want, but otherwise, everything looks amazing!

Your favorite thing about the new layout: I love how the main image of the skin is so different compared to a lot of things I have seen. I think its better laid out compared to how it was. A major facelift but it is entirely wonderful and there were just so many things I have loved and have yet to explore.
