-First, Obviously you've seen the chatbox which is located at the top of the forum index and also on the portal. Let's not act like complete children, It's a cool feature that has had to be removed in the past because people can't handle themselves. I'd hate to have to do that again.
-Second, a related threads box will show up at the bottom of certain threads. It will not show up on every thread as they have to meet certain criteria. It will usually show 5 related threads when it is there.
-Third, The latest poll will show up on the top right of the portal. This was suggested by a member not to long ago to bring more attention to the photo contests.
-Fourth, We've added a spoiler hiding feature. You'll notice a 'spoil' icon in the advanced post box, click it to add spoiler tags around your text. Text within spoiler tags will be hidden until a button is clicked.
-Fifth, All threads will now contain 25 posts per page, as opposed to the 18 previously.
-Sixth, A new user group has been created. The "RF Veteran" group will contain any non-supporting members that have a minimum of 5000 posts. The exciting thing about this group is it has the same avatar, album, and forum viewing permissions as a site supporter. Also lets not forget: Ads are kept to a true minimum. If you are a member of this group you'll see the ad on the header and that's it! In my opinion this is a great way to give back to those members that have stuck with RF through it all.
Have a great day and as always, if there are any suggestions we'd love to hear them.
