Buddy Page added. Basically a friends list page so you can easily contact people.

Recent Topics is now AJAX, so it should update in real time.

Gallery This one we're testing out. May or may not keep it. Useful, I think, to people who want to do things like Game Journals or sell their items (*cough* @Dice and @Dincrest *cough*). If it proves useless or just not a good idea, we'll remove it.

Also, first post in this thread now acts as a changelog, so please check it for updates. :)

I would love to see this happen because there's like 3 games I could see myself "journaling"

EDIT: err where and what is this "gallery" you speak of?

Should be up at the top, next to Recent Topics and before Members. Lemme know if you can't see it and I'll fiddle with permissions some more.

I see nothing. :(
I'm oddly psyched for forum feature~

I can see it, just FYI, if that helps you work it out.

With all of these fancy pantsy forum upgrades going on, I'm mostly happy the preview button works again. You know, cuz I have to know what my shit looks like before I post it to the world.

Something that I noticed that I, again, may be alone in but I'll mention anyway is the new newsline header that changes every few seconds. On my phone, it constantly moves the screen position when I am trying to pick a board or something, and it has more than once made me accidentally pick another board , which isn't aggrivating so much as a minor inconvenience. If I leave my phone vertical it's not an issue but full horizontal and it is guaranteed to happen. Again, might just be a me issue, in which case I'll adjust, but I figured I'd mention it for the hell of it.

TASTY!

I'm still getting random notices to new responses for threads from 2 years ago popping up every now and again, and usually like 10 of them pop up at once and make the right side of the screen completely inaccessible for a few seconds.

Also I am saddened that we cannot use gifs as our avatars, where else am I going to use this collection of seizure-inducing troll images?

I also get the notifications.

Apparently Yoda loves replying to that Lunar 2 thread.

Update: We'll likely be transitioning to phpBB at some point in the near future. I'm currently looking for bridging solutions so we don't lose anything.

Reasons: SMF is slowly being deprecated even in its 2.x format, and their 2.1 beta is emerging very, very slowly. As a result, it's starting to feel like we have to move on. phpBB has kept pace with modern standards and has a wider library of theme and plugin options available to us, as well as a Wordpress bridge should that become a need in future.

It won't happen immediately, but probably towards the end of the year. Just wanted to give everyone a heads up!

Does it prevent the multiple Russian Spam accounts trying to spam here every day for the past week. :(

Well, I wouldn't go THAT far, but in this post-Trump world I can understand the sentiment.

They would probably try to hack this website's polls, anyway.
