Changes made today:
- Software Updates - more speed, more stability, fewer bugs.
- We have upgraded to vBulletin 3.7.4. This fixes various bugs.
- Some behind-the-scenes upgrades.
- Rep & VIP - more transparency, less drama.
- The requirements for VIP are now public. The details are here.
- The exact rep score of users with 10 or more rep is no longer displayed.
- Other - more kindless, more utility, more fun.
- Lurker status is now only given to those who have been active, but not posting, for a month. Previously the time limit was 2 weeks. This will avoid demoting people to lurkers unless they really are lurking.
- Added 'strikethrough' tag. The tag for this is '[s]'. Alternatively, you can use the 'ABC' button when writing a post in advanced mode. To use advanced mode, click 'Go Advanced'.
- The "Thread Games" forum has been renamed to "Fun & Games".
Possibly coming soon:
- A "Verified Identity" group will be created. Members of this group have either met another RL verified member in real life, or they've shown the group leader a picture of themselves holding up a hand-written sign saying 'I'm <someuser> at ADISC.org'. Being in this group does not grant ANY permissions. It does NOT imply the user is trustworthy. It just means that they are the age/gender they say they are - or can dress up as it convincingly.
- Changes to the dark theme.
- A re-write of the rules, so that all rules are posted in the same thread, with examples.
