Upgraded Forum Software

Well as you may of noticed there are a LOT of things different around these parts :lol: I upgraded our forum software to the most recent version of Invision Power Board. This is the same brand we were using before but it's well about 5 years newer :lol:

It has a lot of neat new features that you will find all over. Posting is still the same but you have a nice new WYSIWYG editor, alternatively if you like BBcode you can still use that as well. There are millions upon millions of new features and an upgraded backend to make us run more smoother!

Plus an extensive add-on department, there are a LOT of add-ons coming and some already installed like the new Point system! In which, each time you post now you will be rewarded with some points that you can use in a forum store that will allow you to do things plus more events and things to use them in the future!

Overall this is my Christmas gift to all you guys and myself (it cost quite a bit of change but I won't go there lol). So... Look around, it will take some getting used to but overall we are in for an overhaul on how we function and will be able to do so much more!

LOVING the new quick reply setup. Everybody's avatar was wiped, but our sigs survived thankfully.

I like how it's easier to find the new posts as well, it feels more like a "forum" with this setup. Kudos on the setup! Black with red is very easy on the eyes.

So wait, about the money feature...it gets spent every time you change your profile? Like changing your avatar for example?

I'm confused, it's enabled but I don't see this damn setting for number of reps allowed per day :willy_nilly:

Yeah, said I reached the max I could do in a day (wha?) make the limit of 1 vote per hour.

*edit* You fixed it! I can use it now.

Also just for Mark I just added Tapatalk lol

If I do that, will my FB wall become cluttered with my post activity from here? :lol:

Nope, unless you publish things via the share button it won't BUT there are status updates that you can sync between your FP profile and your FB profile ;)
