    Just a heads up on some recent changes to the forum which you may or may not want to know about.

    1. Fields added to your username bits next to each post. I can add more, but don't think there is any need to at this stage. Feel free to share your thoughts. These are the fields added:
      1. Society Name
      2. Gratz Given
      3. Gratz Earned
      4. You can now search all users posts by clicking the number of posts
    2. Forums on front page now show last post. This was affecting forums that contained subforums... they now show the last post made within any of the subforums.
    3. Some new smilies have been added - more to come. Click on [More] under the Smilies list to see them.
    4. Some new avatars have been made available, but you won't see them until you have made 150 posts.
    5. Gratz system is now only available in the Hall of Fame area. If there is any need to put it in another forum let me know.
    6. Subscribers are now able to flag their posts in the Buying/Selling forums with graphics, to draw more attention to their sales threads etc.
    7. Reputation system overhaul. You can now customise how much reputation you want to give for a post (yay!). This is limited up to your Rep Power.
    8. Other little bits and pieces you probably won't notice.

    Also I created a thread outlining a whole bunch of stuff here. Please take the time to read it as they should answer most of the questions you may have.

    Just add the Gratz button to my Avatar, so people can Gratz me whenever I post?

    Seriously though, look like some good improvements, keep it up.

    Society info was available long time ago - that's when I filled it in - but was never visible under avatar.
    It is still not visible.

    I like that, nice one!

    Nice fixes. I like the part of giving out different levels of rep points. Thanx for all the hard work.

    Some more updates have been implemented to the forums.

    Reputation
    The reputation system has been tweaked and improved. You now get rep power increases more rapidly, and you can spread the love more often. Further information can be found here.

    Useful Links Menu
    Also, in the forum listing and when viewing any thread, there is a new submenu underneath the main menu buttons named "Useful Links". These will give you quick access to Developer Posts, Arkadia Advisers section, and the Forum Rules. More links will be added over time to certain areas of the forums.

    I'd like to take this opportunity to ask that you all please familiarise yourselves with the Forum Rules as they too have had a few changes made, mainly due to the introduction of space pirates and knights. The link to it is now easier to find than ever, so if you're unsure about posting certain content, consult the rules first.

    Thanks!
