Bump!

Three new features have been added:
  1. All staff members will now have their postbit color coordinated to their username in hopes that staff member posts can be identified that much easier. This may be a rare item that is coming to the 4DR Forum Shop later. ;)
  2. "OP" or "Original Poster" banners are now shown. For those who don't know what this means, it will basically display a little banner over the avatar of the user who made the thread if they continue to comment. For example, I made this thread and you can see that there is an "OP" over my avatar (if you are on desktop). If you are on mobile, you should see a little ribbon that says "Thread Starter". This feature is more helpful in certain sections/threads than it is in others, but there is no option (or desire really) to enable/disable the feature in certain sections or threads.
  3. Active Forum Membership is back! Most of the people who are regularly active on the forum now likely do not remember this, but Active Forum Membership is a reward given to those who are active on the forum. The reason it hasn't existed for such a while is because we were using an add-on for the criteria to be met and when we upgraded, that add-on did not exist for XenForo 2.x, but now it does and so this can return! In terms of how to acquire Active Forum Membership, we do not give out the exact number of posts that you have to reach in hopes of promoting quality posts rather than posts that are just spammy to try and get Active Forum Membership. For more information on Active Forum Membership, please see: Active Forum Membership The criteria, details, and perks are subject to be changed over time.
Aside from that, we are looking at other new features to add to the forum, working on cleaning up outdated informational threads and pages (we have many on our radar, but please feel free to post outdated informational threads here so we catch everything), and we are excited to be rolling out these new changes!

Stay safe, be well, and have a good Easter! :)

I like this. However, just as an inquiry to see a general opinion on this, but does this look a bit weird on longer/really longer posts? Such as, 4DR Members and Impostors, for example. (Edit: You could actually take the first post in this thread as an example as well.) In my opinion, it would seem a bit more fitting to cover all profile information and banners, rather than the entire post. I would imagine that this might not be changable, but it just has an odd appearance that hits my eye pretty hard for some reason. If this is just triggering my OCD, then of course no changes necessary!

I 100% agree it looks weird and have the same exact thoughts. Unfortunately, I don’t think there’s a way with this add-on we are using to make it only cover just the profile information. However, maybe it’s something that looks weird because it’s new and different and it’s something we get adapted to over time. :whistling:

The latest update on profile banners have somewhat addressed that issue. Curious however, how your awards, @Azula, are visible? Or, well, only 2 of them.

Hello everyone! Small bump:

Native emoji support is now on enabled on the forum! 😄🥵🤮👺😈💩 This means that you can use emojis on the forum from your phone or computer keyboard. Please don’t confuse emojis with smilies as they are different. Smilies exist and have existed on this forum since forever and parse when you type in the correct text. Emojis differ in the sense that they are part of your phone or computer operating system but support has allowed you to use them here now as well.

In terms of known issues, the Award system is acting up and looks atrocious on mobile, but this is known and a fix is being worked on. Happy hump day!

Renewed our XenForo license for another year of updates which means we are now up to date with all of XenForo's current official add-ons as well. I have also purchased and installed XenForo Enhanced Search which will allow for higher quality and faster search results around the forum. It's the little things to get excited about. ;)

Probably not a "feature" that most are happy to hear about, but advertisements have been enabled on the forum again. It helps bring in extra revenue for new features and keeps existing features up to date. They are responsive (meaning they scale to whatever your screen size is) and one sits at the top of the page and the other sits at the bottom. I don't like intrusive, annoying advertisements everywhere and prefer user experience (if there was a way to make extra money with no advertisements or garbage at all, believe me that I'd be all for it). With that being said, staff members as well as VIP Members, Premium Members, and Bronze Members will not see any advertisements as a perk of their membership.

I've been meaing to raise hell about the search feature, because in a lot of cases where searching terms and keywords related to anything, or mario kart wii, often returned an error of the term being "too common". Which was beyond annoying. I haven't seen yet if this is still an existing issue, and I've forgotten which terms I've tried exactly, but it was definitely common (but USEFUL) terms used.

Is it possible to correct this visual glitch for the right sidebar on the forums list? It sometimes makes it difficult to check the latest posts tab on the forum.

Should be fixed now!
