Welcome to the brand-new Keystone Thrills Discussion Forums! This 2011-2012 Off-Season has been a long one , but there's a light at the end of the tunnel and KT is here to make these last few weeks fly-by and crusie along with you into the 2012 Coaster Season! Let's take a look into the brand-new features to the Forums:
Let's start out with the look. The background color may appear to not be too different from the original, but this is not the case. To go along with the reveiling of Hersheypark's 12th Coaster, Skyrush, the text color is goldenrod and boundaryline around the forums is light blue. The KT logo has also been incorperated into the forum design as well.
Inside the forums, all theme park-related topics have been divided into two sections: PA Parks and Attractions and US and International Parks. There is also a seperate section for Trip Reports as well. The topics in these forums are still being moved around and a Rumor and Construction Section will be added soon.
When viewing the topic list in the forums, you will be able to hit the, "Jump to latest Post" button located to the right of the username of the latest poster in the Last Post collumn. I know that this was requested frequently in the past, so this should be a welcome addition.
Similar to Facebook, we now have our own 'like' button called the Reputation button. If you see a topic that you agree with, just go to the top-right of the post and click the small plus (+) sign and the member's reputation will be added on to their account.
Moving out of the Forums section, Keystone Thrills is proud to announce it's first contest! Introducing...
The Mystery Gift!
So how does one enter? Simple! Just post in the forums! The member who posts the most in the month will win the Mystery Gift for that month! So what could it be? Anything Pennsylvania Park or theme park-related! It could be a brochure, gift card, souvenir, postcard, anything!
This will be a monthly contest starting at 12am on the first day of the month and ends at 11:59PM on the last day of the month. After the contest is over, the top-poster will recieve a message asking for his/her mailing address and will be mailed their prize! If the person can't be contacted, then the 2nd most frequent poster would win (etc.).
The first mystery Gift Contest will begin on March 1st.
As we get closer to the start of the coaster season, more will be announced so be sure check here often!
