Latest Updates


Recommended Posts

Been doing a lot of work on the site lately so I'm making this thread to let you know about all the new updates we're adding regularly!

August 3rd, 2017:

  • Promoted content: @Tweener and I now have the ability to promote content on Facebook and Twitter simply and easily, so you can expect a lot more of your forum posts to be seen on social media! All of the posts we share will also get added to 'Our Picks', which is a new section at the top of the page which highlights our favourite posts.
  • Reactions: You can now react to posts Facebook-style. Instead of just liking or disliking posts, you can be angry, sad or confused. However, your reputation (the number in your profile showing how many likes or dislikes you have) will only be determined by liking or disliking something. I'll be adding and changing the reactions over the next few days so stay tuned to see what emotions we add! ;) 
  • You can now log in or sign up with your Facebook or Twitter account, as well as share your new posts to these social medias easily.
  • The Leaderboard section up the top of the page has been reconfigured and added to.
  • Activity Streams have been reconfigured.
  • Embedding has been improved.
  • Overall layout changes.
  • This isn't an update, but could y'all let me know what you think about all the header images we have? ;) I find them kind of boring at this point so if anyone has any new images they'd like to add just let me know!
