Hey folks - I wanted to update you on some upcoming additions to these forums. The activity that we’ve seen here has been really exciting, and we hope this place continues to be what you want it to be in terms of a Forum.
With that being said, we have a couple updates to put by you all, some implemented and others on the way!
1. Patreon Supporter Flair
For supporters of the Patreon we have a new flair for users to show off under their profile picture. It looks pretty neat. Check it out:
As these forums and the site have hosting costs of around $15 a month that we pay out of pocket, any recurring contribution helps to keep this site sustainably running in the long-haul. And we want to recognize the good folk that help us achieve this! You can find the Patreon here and the Ko-fi here.
We’ve heard the “like” reaction isn’t cutting it in terms of the breadth of emotions you all want to express. In a coming update we’ll be rolling out a set of emojis to react to posts with. Let us know if you have any specific suggestions, or if you’re keen to emulate the FFG setup.
3. Who’s Online
A third major addition we’ll be rolling out over the next week is a “who’s online” tracker, to tell you if any other forum users are currently browsing. This is an exciting one!
