I also thought this may be a good and exciting time to introduce myself. My name is Miguel and I'm the (somewhat new) fresh meat on the Dreadnought community team. I'll be around with Thor and EmptyTuxedo, so keep an eye out for me popping up more frequently. You can usually find me on our Discord, so feel free to pop in and say what's up! I'm looking forward to getting know all of you! smile

I like the changes to the site, makes the site not look like something from the early 2000's smile

Out of curiosity, where is the Discord's link? I tried looking around the forums for it, and I couldn't find it.

You can find it on the sidebar of our subreddit! Just scroll down to the websites section and click on the Discord icon. (It's between the Six Foot and Facebook logos.) smile

On a side note, will we ever get custom avatars/icons? Having only a few pre-made ones available is as good as none.

Also, "Latest Posts" shouldn't contain literally every post ever made.
Make it so that posts that are older than 24h won't show up there. Or if you manage to, make it a setting that each user can control for himself.

e.g. only show unread posts, only show posts of the last 12h

But shouldn't "Latest Posts" contain basically everything? Obviously the most recent stuff will be on the fist or second pages of it, That basically covers your 24hr limiter, after that just ignore the rest of the pages of posts.

Personally I find it a bit more convenient that they are all listed in order of time in that way. Though we both use the forums for different purposes, so being able to go back a few days in the latest post section because I remember a recent thread I need to look into is generally more helpful for me.

Though as a note if there are unread posts in a thread you can see that easy from the icons on the left hand side. If there are 3 dots in the icon it mans there are new posts in that thread, if it is empty then there is nothing new there.

Leave the latest posts the way they are, that works that way in every forum and cutting it off at 24h just means anybody not babysitting the forums daily will have a hard time catching up if they want to.

edit to add:
New forum style does not appear to have any private message notification, or at least I could not find one. Rather annoying, please fix.

That's not the point, and yes, I already know what indicates an unread post.
However, the point is that I have no filter or anything to just display everything that's considered unread.
Any decent forums has features like that.
Why this would be useful? Because it happens that I have unread posts, then read posts, but after those there are unread posts that I missed. Obviously they won't be read because I won't ever go past page 2.

Which wasn't my suggestion in the end. That should be an per-user setting, the question is just if they are capable of doing that (though it's not hard).
I don't know if nobody ever put much effort into the forums because no one cared or because they weren't capable of doing so, but either way, it's inconvenient. Especially this markdown stuff.
That we're still without BBCode says enough.

Well it's not like BBCode is the evolution of Markdown. MD is more recent and an alternative for quickly formatting text that's in wide use.

I don't mind it but I'd wish they hadn't gone with Gruber's limited original version of MD, I do miss not being able to use things like tables, being able to notify forum users inline: @DESU_Wyvyrias (although I'd have to add those silly #numbers to your name which I'm not a fan of, either), having a proper private messaging system (although that's unrelated to MD), etc.
