    I like the default design - nice execution of colors and light theme.

    How active is your forum? I may want to help out on my freetime if NF gets boring - but I want to know if the userbase is super engaged or not to in order to know what to expect.

    I don't think it is that active at the moment, my focus is tailored more toward improving the homepage features rather than the forum. So currently we are working on releasing the feed page on the homepage profile which will connect all members together, you can see their anime/manga list updates, what to watch, what they share or post or like etc.

    The activity is more on discord channel a bit but i want to built a strong staff who have passion toward anime and manga.

    How come you don't ask one of the current members to be a mod? Won't they be angry if a complete stranger comes over and takes over?

    They won't be angry, nope. I have befriended members from different sites who are staff, many of the older staff were from different sites too that became good friends. I usually like to assemble a team from outside the site unless i know the member well from the site.

    Now, some wants to join the staff team but they don't have the needed skills, i usually like staff who are relaxed, bring joy when communicating with members, be leaders and can communicate well with members and know how to handle disputes if any, not that there is any now. We're focusing on activity atm.

    If you like to join pm me !

    What’s the difference between the two applications?

    also if you’re offering positions why aren’t you a mod yourself and why are there few people here?
