As the topic says... This isn't an off-the-shelf forum solution like we've used in the past (such as Invision Power Board, phpBB etc). I've built this completely from scratch for this website and it's fully integrated into the rest of the system.
Some features might not be working fully (although I have personally tested it extensively) and there may be things in other forums you're used to seeing which I haven't built in yet, so let me know if you spot any bugs or anything which you think can be improved.
A few things that may be added in the near future:
Uploading images to use in your posts. Currently you must hotlink an image from somewhere else on the web.
- Direct / Private messaging to other members
- Automatically embedding Tweets if users post links to them
Spoiler tags (BBCode)
- Live chat room (development already in progress)
Notification system so you'll be alerted if someone replies to one of your posts Post reporting so users can report spam or offensive / rule breaking posts which admins can review
If anyone else has any requests or feedback, let me know!
