Welcome to the forums!
These forums are a spectacular leap forward from the original forums of mnartists.org. There are many new features that may be utilized now.
Please make sure you have read the Forum Etiquette
- Please register with your name as the username. Since we were unable to port over any information from the old forums you will need to create a new username & password.
- The biggest change you will notice is that you can make your own threads.
- You can find most of the answers to how to use the forums via our FAQ.
- The User CP is how you control all of the options to personalize your account on the forums.
- You can create custom images (referred to as avatars) to accompany your posts : The maximum size of your avatar is 80 by 80 pixels or 19.5 KB (whichever is smaller).
- Posts are limited to 10,000 characters. (This limit is hardcoded into the software)
- You can use markup codes with html to edit the way your posts appear. You can find a complete list of them via this link in our FAQ.
- You can add users to a buddy list or an ignore list explained here.
- The old forums will be accessable in a read only format via the archive from the main forum page.
- The file types and sizes for allowed attachments are as follows below:

At this point we are unable to transfer the old forums content to the new forums. The Jive software has been on a rapidly declining track recently, the data integrity only being held together by the willpower of our tech support.
The old Jive forums will be accessible in a read only format. I wish we could do more with that but in order to make sure that there is no data loss we need to set it up in this format.
