Greetings!

I'm excited to announce the launch of my new website. I spent a lot of time creating this so that you guys will have a great way to engage with me and others who enjoy my films and any of the topics they encompass. I'll be posting all sorts of fun stuff in the coming weeks.

I really hope you'll consider registering (http://texfilms.com/register.php) an account and join in the conversation. It's totally free, and I'm planning to offer perks for registered members. Details coming soon, but feel free to register anytime! I've also created a Patreon (https://www.patreon.com/texfilms) page. Everything is explained in detail on my Patreon page, but essentially it's a crowd funding site that allows people to support their favorite creators. You can pledge as little as $1 per video. I know everyone isn't able to donate, and that's OK! Don't worry, my videos will continue as usual. But if you'd like to help support the channel, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you all for being such great fans! I hope to see you online. :)

One thing I should note about the website. Xyon is helping me sort out an issue with image resizing and attachment thumbnails. So, if you try and upload say, an avatar, and the dimensions exceed the allowed 140x140, then the forum will tell you it can't resize it for you. Also, images uploaded to a post won't create thumbnails. Hopefully we'll get that fixed as I know image resizing is a pain. It's nice when the forum does it for you.

There might be a few other bugs and quirks that need to be sorted. I noticed some colors that were hard to see on a menu when using my iPad, so I'll be working those out as I run into them.

One major feature I am working on is some custom navigation buttons on the top of the site, similar to Orbiter-Forum, which should make navigating the site easier.
