    Hello Mineage Community!

    As you currently see the forums have been HUGELY renovated.

    Thank you to @Bill Applegate for updating that for us.


    Anyways, lets cut right to the chase on what the new updates that have been implemented!


    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    User Online Button:

    A green corner piece will visibly show up on your user block when you are online browsing the forums.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Easy Message Quoting:

    You can select a certain passage in someones post to easily quote them, without quoting their whole message.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Poll Improvements:


    There are a number of new options and controls when you create new polls!


    1. Polls are no longer limited to one or multiple choices. The creator of the thread can now control exactly how many responses a user can select. If they select the maximum amount, the other options will automatically disable to indicate this.

    2. Voters can now change their votes, if the owner of the thread has the option enabled. This is useful to handle cases where people make mistakes, a response is missing, and/or if people just change their mind.

    3. Poll results can be limited to only be viewed by people that have voted. This can help to limit gaming of polls or "groupthink".

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    User Ladders:

    Many of you have already noticed that many of the well-known community members have a variety of names on the forums such as:

    1. New Member: 0 messages
    2. Member: 25 messages
    3. Active Member: 100 messages
    4. Well-Known Member: 250 messages
    5. Senior Member: 500 messages
    6. Dedicated Member: 750 messages
    7. Infamous Member: 1,000 messages
    8. Elder Member: 2,000 messages
    9. Legendary Member: 5,000 messages
    These ranks now have message requirements. Each rank will have it’s own different color and different abilities. The highest rank (Senior Member) will be able to lock his/her thread whenever they please. Also, able to change your title as well at any given time. Note: It is kinda hard to get 250 messages so keep in mind it is hard to work up to.


    P.S These changes will happen at a future date.








    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Easy Access Profile Posting/Viewing:

    Now on the front page of the forums, on the sidebar there is a widget for Profile Posting.

    See other/s while updating your own!

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------




    Limited Signature lines:

    There are now a limited amount of lines you can take up with your signature! This will reduce the unnecessary huge signatures that just take up too much space. Use the provided space wisely to express yourself in your signatures!


    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Staff Tab:

    Easily view the staff list. We implemented a “Staff” Tab.

    I'm pretty sure I've seen the same thing here. It looks similar, doesn't it?

    By the way, the only things I do not see from the previous post are Infamous and Loyal Member ranks.

    The user ladders are on hold for now since users are spamming the forums.
    I'll update you on that at a later time :)

    You have one post, I'm guessing like how other forums work, the more you post & receive likes you will get a higher "Member" ranking on the forums.
