The Scratching Shed undergoes redesign TSS February 7, 2011 Site news 33 Comments Welcome to the new look TSS. Work is ongoing on certain things, and you may notice some previously available features have been removed. Some of these have gone for good due to lack of demand or incompatibility, whilst others will return later either as they were or in a new (and hopefully improved) format. The forums are one feature we will be bringing back, although they’ll be totally different from the ones we had before. This is because the previous site used a social plugin called Buddypress – something we’ve decided to move away from due to certain compatibility issues. To that end, you will also notice the login box has been removed that registered members used previously. You can still login using the links on the right hand side although your previously used avatars will have vanished. At present, the site will not allow you to upload your own avatar directly, but you can have one next to your comments using Gravatar – simply go to the site and register using the same email address you do here. Thanks for your continuing support of TSS, we hope you enjoy the new site. UPDATE The new TSS forums with endlessly more features are now available here.
