Note 1: For those who have come to the website lately you'll notice a whole lot of changes have been made. We are no longer going with the Blue, Black, White color schemes. We are no longer Lake Xeno the general purpose discussion forum. We are also no longer the Xeno Society an open minded free thinker movement. We have upgraded our mindset and understanding and we are now The Hidden Tiger Society. It's an open sourced/grassroots secret society. How secret is it? That's up to you! The official launch of the new website will be March 1st, 2017. When did the Society originally start? Well if you consider our past initiatives that date would be March 31st, 2009.
Note 2: We are undergoing our maintentance to the new Tigerland Framework (our own PHP/PostgreSQL solution...internet developer speak) and will no longer use any outside code. You can preview it by going to: http://www.thexeno.com/tb) As a reminder our Web Development Team consists of 3 Tigers all doing volunteer hours so the ETA on this is New Years' 2017.
▽ The Previous Tiger Discussion Forums
The old forums link is here. They will remain up until the new forums are finished. As we update our Test Enviornment to include the old forum layout our style sheets may make the old forums look a bit weird from time to time as we upgrade to our new Tigerland Framework!
