As some of you long-timers may remember, Den of Angels once had a forum for aspiring doll sculptors to share their projects and talk shop. It eventually grew beyond the scope of what fit our focus at that time, and that community was rehomed on The Joint. Over the years, some of you have told us that you miss having an area of DoA for BJD artists. Today we are happy to announce that we have decided to merge the Joint back into Den of Angels, so that DoA can be a place to discuss resin BJDs throughout the creative process. We hope to import member accounts and content at the end of July, however it will take our staff time to do some cleanup and organize everything to better fit DoA's structure. For that reason, we can't give an exact date for the opening of the Joint on DoA. In the mean time, we've started a temporary thread to discuss BJD-making while we work everything out: https://denofangels.com/threads/the-joint-bjd-making-discussion.750612/ If you have an account on the Joint, please read this thread for more information about the merge. We know that some of you will have questions. We've tried to answer some below, but feel free to ask any questions about the merge in this thread. I have both a DoA and Joint account. What will happen? Your accounts will be merged and you will continue to use your Den of Angels username and password to log in. Your postcount may go up! I have an account on the Joint but am not a member of Den of Angels. Your account from the Joint will be transferred to Den of Angels and you will be able to log in with your Joint username and password at the end of the month. If you can't wait that long, create a DoA account now and tell us your Joint username on your application. I might have made a Joint account years ago but rarely used it... We have deleted accounts on the Joint that had fewer than 15 posts and have not logged in recently. If your account was deleted and you are not a member of Den of Angels, we welcome you to create an account on DoA. No invitation needed! Can I use this merge to get around a ban? No – if you are banned on Den of Angels, you will stay banned even if your account on the Joint was not banned. Will this change the criteria for on-topic dolls? Den of Angels remains focused on resin BJDs that meet our criteria. However, we recognize that this area of our site may need special consideration. We are in the process of discussing it and have not made final decisions yet about exactly what will be allowed.
