    Unfortunately due to the way XenForo is made this isn’t so easy. I’ll keep this issue in mind and keep my eye out for any plugins that address this issue well if they pop up in the future but I can’t make any guarantee. Given that a large amount of users use mobile and would struggle loading...

    There isn't any automatic process which would award a medal to users who have been around for x amount of time unfortunately so I think this would be difficult to manage. I have the following notice plastered at the top of the forums for people who have made less than five posts: I just...

    I've moved the how did you find ZD thread but not the funny conversations one as it isn't necessarily limited to the shoutbox only. That could be something we could clear up in the welcome PM. I'll discuss with the staff. I've reduced it to 30 seconds.

    I've removed it. Should probably refresh them at some point. If anyone has particular suggestions feel free to private message me and maybe I'll add some of them at some point ;) That's a good idea, I do think that we could do this better. It is hard to set down a number in terms of...

    I have added the reaction @Rubik. In regards to the GKA related discussion I think that the communication regarding the "cancellation" could have been handled much better.

    Hi There, I’m sorry that you’ve had a negative first impression of the forums based on this experience. I’d estimate that at least 90% (perhaps more) of new user registrations are spam bot accounts so we do have a lot of measures in place to stop the entire forum being swamped with spam...

    I'll hand this one over to @Satan since I am very bad with differentiating colours. He's going to look into putting in a colour or shade that is easier to differentiate.

    I'm cool for there to be featured threads. Each day might be too much but weekly could work better I think. Alternatively, I think it might be better to just feature quality threads as they become available rather than on a set timeframe. I don't think this is really necessary. Thanks for...

    Just a quick update on the bot suggestions. I've made some changes to check thread titles for hyperlinks and have tested it to see that it does work. So that shouldn't be a problem anymore.

    We've had this suggestion quite a few times over the past couple of years.

    I've thought about how we can reward people and encourage users to post more (while not making that be spam too). One idea was a user group (with a colour) for active users with some requirements to stay in it month to month. Perhaps something like: x amount of posts per month (maybe 30ish -...

    "Threatening" can also be threatening someone's reputation too depending on how you interpret it. Obviously threatening someone actual harm isn't allowed but that's not what we are talking about here. "Harassing" is already banned in the rules. As for the PM idea, I think that it is a genuinely...

    Often it isn’t clear to determine what is true or false and it’s a matter of one person’s word against another’s.

    I’m out at the moment but when I’m at my computer next I’ll take a look into it. Perhaps it might already be in the current version (I think we might not have it upto date but it’s a paid addon and our license for renewals may have expired). I’ll let you know later on what’s the go :)

    Perhaps infract on first offence is too harsh and we should warn on first offence instead? If enough people think so I am willing to budge on that.
