Put forum suggestions here

Note that your ideas are not going to be necessarily automatically accepted. I reserve final say on ideas, etc. etc.

Thank you :cal:

Is it possible to add the text alignment and spoiler BBCode tags, since they're as far as I know currently missing from the available selection of formatting tags. Spoilers would most definitely be useful to have
Love,

A few modern forum QoL things would be nice, like external links opening in a new tab, or a "mark all forums as read" button. Unless, of course, these were conscious choices made because they emulate the way the old forums worked.

not exactly conscious choices and more of an artifact of how phpBB is coded, but i'll see if i can't implement those anyway

I'm getting errors about not being allowed to compose PMs. Is there some requirement to "unlock" that, and if so, can it be made public? Because, as is, it just looks like a permission error.

You've also got a problem with the header; at certain window sizes, the "HomestuckXYZ: The OFFICIALLY CANON forums" header breaks.

Edit: Another suggestion: Add profile fields for discord and pesterchum contacts.

Also, as I think I mentioned on twitter, I have some experience with weird legacy phpbb code; hit me up if you ever run into weird limits and I'll help out if I can.

More profile options and settings if possible, like making age or birthdays public or private (unsure what will happen in the forum birthdays tab on the main page if birthdays aren't shown on profiles. Will they still be announced?)

Options for a general about that people can put info in as they please, etc.

when signing up, it should prevent you from pressing the button if you havent changed the date from the default set one. it's a silly and easy to make mistake that prevents you from trying again

i dont think birthdays are displayed unless you decide to enter that on your profile. i can't find them, at the very least.

added an "about me" section.

Thanks!

And yeah, birthdays aren't displayed but they still seem to be present given the forum birthdays thing is working.

Oh, I stand corrected! The new about page stuff and related additions for the profile has birthday options.

Can we disallow the removal of the subject line when replying to a topic? It causes this to happen.

The profile information has a Google+ field. Google+ doesn't exist anymore. Also, I don't think a facebook field is necessary.
