Hi all,

Excited to be officially announcing what has been worked on the past week or two.

Forum Changes:
As may of you have already seen, we've changed a few things on the forum.
  • Entire New Theme: A more rounded and pleasant design, moving away from the older 'blocky' feel.
  • Colour Palette: We've took on board your feedback, and introduced *many* various colour designs for you to choose from.
  • Faster Loading: The forum should load much quicker, less time waiting for the logo and background to load.
  • Forum Avatars: When browsing the main area of the forum, you'll now see avatars beside posts.
  • Dark Mode: We've added an experimental dark theme, found in your account preferences area.

New Discord Bot
We've been working hard to create a brand new and redesigned bot for our discord server.

We thought carefully on what would be a better way of dealing with punishments, and so we've introduced punishment ID's. When you receive a punishment within the discord, you will be given an ID - for example #abcdef. If you feel you've been wrongly punished, you will enter this ID on our appeal format. Staff will then be able to lookup your punishment, which should ensure things run smoother than they previously did before.

Chat Filtering
We've introduced a brand new profanity and advertising filter, which will minimise any profanity related punishments. However if you attempt to bypass this, you will be punished as this is against our rules. We've also introduced a new link filter system, which will allow you to put a message beside your link - unlike previously that removed your message and resent it with just your link. Our filtering system also covers messages that have been edited after they've been sent to prevent any profanity or advertising related content.

Chat Reporting
We are pleased to announce a brand new feature for the discord, the option to report a message for staff to see. If someone has posted a message that you believe has broken any of our rules - you may react to the message with the :report: emoji. This will then remove the reaction, and report it straight for staff to see. We believe this is a huge new feature that will make it easier for messages to be reported from the community.

Thank you for all the support,

i'm glad someone takes the time to do this cause it's really cool:D
Yeah, I really wanted to add filtering for the new system along with adding IDs for punishments to make it easier. Then @SuperMonis had an amazing idea for a report system, so we pushed at that :D

Wowow, you’re really topping yourself every time Charlie
Thank you so much Pae!

sksk i was wondering what the report emoji was added for good to know
Now you know :p

Nice, I like the new feel for the website.
Yep! A touch of new colour and feel makes a big difference :D

nice siri, i'll be sure to use the discord reporting emoji even more instead of dming staff
It’s very handy, if someone removes a message after you reported it won’t make a difference :)

You, indeed have done well this time Charlie. Good work!
I'm proud of the new update
Thank you Dora! Appreciate the kind words and I’m glad you all enjoy the update :)
