Changes and Updates coming to MLK!

A few years ago, MLK was a vibrant community that brought together TLK fans, artists, writers, and other enthusiasts to discuss The Lion King and just about everything else under the sun. A lot of us have had a lot of fun on here, and made more than a few friends along the way.


Recently, a number of members have come together interested in bringing MLK back to being the kind of place it's been in the past. To that end, we've been investing time in thinking about ways to make that happen, and we'd like to share some of these ideas with everyone and bring everyone on board!


First of all, we will be reorganizing and consolidating the forums to "trim the fat". There are a number of forums with no posts in them for years, and it creates a feeling of emptiness around the forums that we'd like to leave behind. We'll be posting a draft 'reorganization' for people to look at and comment on shortly.


As some of you know, MLK had disabled registrations for quite a while, which kept the community from growing. We've re-enabled registrations and definitely encourage everyone to actively invite friends and potential new members to join. We're excited to bring over folks from places like DeviantArt, Fanfiction.net, Ao3, and other similar venues to post their work, discuss TLK, and make some new friends, especially as The Lion Guard and the upcoming remake keep TLK as relevant as ever.


We're slowly beginning to see the revival of old contests, opening of new discussions, old faces coming back and some new faces cropping up. Let's keep up the positive momentum and help MLK grow back into the sort of community it was when it brought all of us together. We can definitely do that. And let's bring good vibes as well. Nothing would make me, and a lot of other people, happier than leaving the MLK drama behind us, and I think we can definitely do that too.


There's more changes and updates around the corner as well. So if you have any ideas you'd like to see brought to the forum, don't keep them to yourself. And finally, of course, this entire thing is a team effort, so if you'd like to get more involved, please let me know!

:playful:

It's just wonderful that there are still members out there that want to bring this forum back to it's full potential :) I am looking forward to seeing what other members have in mind. I'll try to think of some of my own ideas as well. :P

I'd be willing to revive MLK Radio for the umpteenth time if we finally do get people to start being active again.

We'd need a lot of activity tho cause it's not fun to plan it and free up a whole day to run it and then not have people show up haha.
