    The blog services are fine. It's just that hardly anyone uses it or reads them. It's a little discouraging when hardly anyone reads what you are writing. Is there a way to make them available for non members to read maybe?

      Didn't realize they weren't I'll look at the settings!

      Just looked, I can still see them when logged out. Problem may be that it defaults to showing the new posts screen, at the 'last month' setting. And there haven't been any in the last month, so you don't see any posts unless you go to all blogs or change the dropdown. Not sure if those default settings can be changed.

        Another idea is to add a "blog" icon next to the avatars of members with blogs. So that there's a convenient link if you want to check out the blog of somebody you're talking to.

          I can't zoom in anymore when I use my ipad.... which means it's way more difficult to hit the icon next to the thread title to load at the newest post.... the only difference is the pateron banner. Is there something we can do to fix this?

            Don't think anything's changed. Maybe try liquid instead of fixed width in the themes?

            I can zoom in on posts on my phone, but not main forums or main page.

                    I'm surprised that much of anyone on AnimeNation blogged. Before joining AnimeNation, I already had my own website with blogs. Normally, I would share them in my AnimeNation thread.

                    Like I already said, with my hectic schedule mostly offline, I haven't had much time to publish another blog.

                    Earlier this morning, I was in the middle of updating previously published blogs, that I want to link to my website's main page. There are at least 8 blogs that still need to be updated, before linking them to my home page.

                    Even though I still try to remain active on AnimeNation, this is probably the most that I have posted on here in a long time.

                        What would you want from an affiliate?

                            In terms of getting new members to post, maybe a thread where they could introduce themselves would be a good idea.

                            So when a new member signs up, they'd get a message with a link to the thread, encouraging them to introduce themselves. This could help ease them into the community. And in the message there could also be some blurb about AN forums - its culture and its history.

                              Would you do this in off-topic or make a new sub for intro threads?

                                Even though it has been a long time since I last posted on another Anime forum, they have a sub-forum specifically for new fans. It's basically a Welcome Committee where new posters introduce themselves. The moderators and admin also create ice breaker threads.
