Forum features and cool shit you might not know about

I know we’ve got about 10 or so regular users, mostly lurkers. For the most part, you probably only look at the NSFW forum. But in case you don’t, there are some features you might want to know about that might not be obvious at first glance.

Let’s start with the theme. The forum defaults to a theme called “FLATBOOTS,” but there is an alternative theme called “BBOOTS” that you can select from your User Control Panel.

Just go to your User Control Panel, click on the “Board Preferences” tab and go to “My board style” to pick the one you want. Hit “Submit” and you’re all set.

I don’t think there’s much interest here in the chat room, but if there ever is… our new chat room integrates Giphy gifs, so you don’t have to search the internet for that perfect reaction gif:

And speaking of chat, if you see that little blue-and-white cartoon speech balloon in the lower-right-hand corner, it’s a way you can instantly chat with any other forum member. Just click on it, it should be self-explanatory.

New feature: image previews. You probably noticed this already - but for every thread with an image in it, the forum will automatically put a little thumbnail that you can hover over to the left of the thread title. That’ll bring up the newest image in the thread (or the oldest if I change the setting). Just a fun little addition.

Feature I’m constantly playing with: badges. You get different badges for different forum accomplishments, such as number of likes received or given, etc.

View all the available badges here: badge/index.html

I’m taking suggestions for new badge ideas.

So I’ve noticed things slowing down lately. I’ve disabled a bunch of shit, including chat and lazy loading of images. Let me know if anything’s missing that you really like.

Problems mostly solved. Probably some room for more improvement.

Did you know you can change your user name and give yourself a custom title through the User Control Panel (UCP)?
