Everyone,

This is your heads up that the forum structure will be reorganized sometime the weekend of August 6th! The intent behind this reorganization is to cluster like forums together in a more cohesive way. These changes have been shared, discussed, and in some cases modified based on feedback from Exec and the community via the Community Feedback forum. Public discussion started May 24, 2022 in this thread. There will be no change to the Within the Tower and Administrative sections. These changes do not impact forum access; you should continue to see what you see now, just in a different configuration.

The TarValon.Net Community section will now house all news, information, events, and philanthropic activity. The City of Tar Valon is being repurposed as our main come-get-to-know-everyone, interaction-among-members hub. The Library is mostly staying the same, but with a specific WoT focus; non-WoT areas there are being moved to the City.

Here's what we'll be moving to:

Category: TarValon.Net Community
  • Site Announcements
    • Hiring
  • Introductions
  • Ask the White Tower
    • FAQ & Member Information
    • Graphics Requests
    • Community Feedback
  • Events
    • Local Events
    • Official Conferences
    • North America - Anniversary Party
    • North America - Spring Fling (reordered; seems silly to split the NA events)
    • Euro Party
    • South Pacific
  • Servant of All
  • Location for Exec Meeting Notes
Category: The City of Tar Valon
  • City Square (renamed at Mayor's request)
    • The Blue Cat Inn
    • The Apartments
  • The Olde Warder & Hen
  • General
  • Discussion Halls
    • News & Politics
    • Spirituality & Religion
    • Gender Discussion
    • Non-WoT Literature & Fiction
    • Education & Employment
    • Sports & Entertainment
    • Video & Board Games
    • Science & Technology
    • Home & Garden
    • Health & Fitness
    • Makerspace
    • Costume/Cosplay
  • Online Events
    • Forum Games
    • Frivolous Fun
    • Virtual Events
  • Location for Faire Grounds
Category: The Library
  • The Classroom
  • The Head Librarian’s Desk
  • Book Discussion
    • Wheel of Time - First Time Read
    • Wheel of Time - Reread (Spoilers)
    • Brandon Sanderson
  • Wheel of Time on Prime (renamed to reflect official show name)

There is no proposed change for access or moderation of the forums. As things stand, the Costume Team is over that forum, correct? I think it will stay that way for the time being.

This is a great idea - looks like it will be more intuitive to use!

Looks good, but where did the gender forum go?

Yeah, I was going to ask the same thing. The gender discussion forums (all are opt in ones, yeah?), where are they?

Good day.
I ( &/tech) will be breaking re-organizing things starting soon.
Some forums may have inherited permissions that may need to be adjusted after we get everything moved.
We will post here when done and if you still have issues with seeing (or not seeing) things you should/shouldn't, then you can respond and let us know of outstanding permission clean up issues at that point.

Thanks!
