SMF - Shadow Chaser is watching.
"For those whose travels embrace integrity, guided by an enlightened awareness, respectfully roaming the narrow path of self-determination, the shadow you cast is my refuge and my stage. For those that create fear out of uncertainty, exploiting gloom while promising deliverance, ensnaring your prey as they stumble through the fogs of self-doubt, you may consider me your adversary. For those of diminished faith and compromised temperament, my hand is out reached, to elevate you above your apprehension and out of the shadows. Yet, in the shadows I must remain a ghost of justice filled with a need for retribution, burdened by an anger never fully constrained. I am confined by the wall that divides joy from sorrow and conquest from loss, never to be released. Stand Back: The shadows are mine!" The oath of the Shadow Chaser.
I hope all is well. I am in the midst of publishing my new novel, "The Resurgence: Chronicles of the Shadow Chaser." We will be announcing a release date in the next couple of weeks. If you get chance, please check out my group, "The Shadow Chaser: Enter the Shadow Crypt."
For a decade, Dr. Arthur Brown had been protecting the city of Toronto as the Shadow Chaser. But, a series of events on one unfortunate night changed his life forever. He was able to heal and move on, but the Shadow Chaser was no more. Now 20 years later, that same evil has returned to prey on the innocent. Brown, with the help of his friend, Alexander Taylor, prepares for war. Brown chooses Kevin Wolf, a dispirited seventeen-year-old, damaged by the brutal murder of a loved one, to reprise his role. But will the new Shadow Chaser be able to fend off the impending darkness, or will he descend, as did Brown, into a self-imposed abyss?
This is not a graphic novel, but I would love to create a comic series in the near future.
Hope to see you in the crypt.
So you've arrived at this Simple Machines Forum (SMF)! Perhaps you've been looking at the board index or a screen telling you that you need to register before you can read it and you're wondering what to do next?
Well, some forums permit guests to read and post, some permit guests to read only and some are restricted to registered members. We'd recommend registering at any forum that you see yourself using regularly because many of the most useful features will only become available to you when you do so. Since SMF, however, is such a flexible system that few forums are likely to be identical, we will start by describing four key areas that we'd normally expect to be there for you:
The Main Menu
Supposing you've arrived here as a guest (or have registered but are currently logged out), the main menu (which appears on every page) should normally comprise five or six buttons (or text links):
Once you've registered and logged in, however, the main menu should look a little different:
Forum administrators should also note the presence of an additional Admin button.
The Board Index
While the board index (forum home page) is packed with all kinds of information and links, the core of the interface (at least in the SMF default theme) normally looks something like this:
The Message Index
Like the board index, the message index interface is quite straightforward when reduced to its essential components:
Sometimes referred to as threads, topics are where you find the actual messages:
