Hi, all.

As you all know, MTS2 is a dynamic, ever changing site with some great new content and features being implemented all the time.

We'd like to take this opportunity to highlight some of the changes made to the site that you might not have picked up on.

Firstly, the upload system. MTS2 prides itself on quality items available for download, and to help you, the creators, meet these guidelines we have implemented a feature called Conditional Approval.

What does this mean exactly? Well, let's say somebody creates a great lot, but leaves in lots of custom content, or doesn't credit properly. Normally, we would have to reject this, but with the new Conditional Approval system, we can leave the upload in the queue and let you edit and change as needed to meet the quality guidelines. This saves you getting a rejection PM, and then having to re-upload your items again, which can be a pain in busy times.

All uploads are now automatically added to your subscribed threads list - you can access this by looking at the User Control Panel.

When you see your subscribed threads list, it now shows the status of any uploads you have submitted.

Secondly, another feature you might find useful is the Quick Links. This allows you to set "bookmarks" within the MTS2 site to different areas, which appear as a second navbar under the existing one.

For example, let's say you always check the Site News, Anime Sims and the Wallpapers section. You can add all of these 3 to the Quick Links bar.

You can even link to other sites you go to as well.

We've also made small changes to the layout of the download pages, but these are fairly cosmetic.

We hope you enjoy the changes, and we are always open to new suggestions regarding the site - after all, it's for you. Please make new suggestions in the Site Issues forum.

Kind Regards,
MTS2 Staff

Yay! I've got the first bug report!

When I do a search all of the search results say " Thread is currently in the moderation queue."

Not bad at all! But what happens if you don't know where you got the creators content from? Not to be dumb :|

Conditional Approval is a GREAT idea! I know that a lot of people were anxious about getting their work approved, and it was such a pain to type all those links over again (I'd taken to saving all my descriptions, so I could just copy and paste). It's easy to make a mistake after you've been up all night creating. :)
