New and changed features
#1
This new forum system has many new features already built-in, and I'll be adding some in the near future. Any new and changed features sufficiently interesting to mention, will be listed here:
  • Member ranks: we've been assigned new wreaths: green for member ranks under centurio, copper for 'officers', silver for moderators and gold for admins. Moderators also have their names in silver and admins in gold. The ranks have been extended and changed slightly. We have introduced the two legionary tribune ranks. Those who reach the exalted rank of Legatus Legionis (7500 posts) are entitled to a custom title, e.g. Legatus Legionis Legio ABC...
  • 'Possibly related threads' - the forum now uses thread titles to suggest possible related topics. Not very useful if you put 'Roman legionary' in the title, but if your thread title is descriptive, it can work surprisingly well.
  • Birthdays! In your profile you can now add your birthday and select whether only your age or your entire date of birth should be shown. All not necessary, but nice nonetheless. Also made me realize I was just 25 when I first signed up back on EzBoards... Confused
  • Finding new activity: there are now three links at the top of the forum to help you figure out what to read. View New Posts shows you new posts since your last activity on the forum (so that may be a very short span of time); View Today's Posts shows you posts from the last 24hrs; View Unread Posts shows you all threads you've not ready (completely). Happy reading!
  • Medals! They were here before, were gone, back, disappeared and have returned. For now, I consider them experimental. I've been awarding some to members that just happened to be online at the time (yep, you're guinea pigs now!) and who were entitled to them.
Greets!
