If you believe that there could be specific alterations or additions made to the forums in order to improve them, please list them in this thread.

In an effort to reduce repetitious suggestions, I will be updating this first post with ideas that are currently in process of being implemented, or ideas that staff deemed as unnecessary to add.


Applied Features:
- Removal of home button (Unnecessary)​
- Adjusted signature limits​
- Add "Currently Viewing Thread" to thread content.​


Work in Process:
- Add a gender option to display on profiles and member cards.​
- Add a collapse/expand option if possible​


Rejected / Will not be added:
- User-specific suggestions, such as unique name colors.​

Unless I'm dumb, I'm pretty sure "Home" and "Forums" function the exact same way (by taking you to mariokartboards.com). It's a small detail, but maybe take out either Home or Forums, just keep one.

Would a working portal be possible on XenForo 2.0.7?

You are correct, it is rather unnecessary to have both. I have removed the home button.

I will get back to you on this one once I get a reply from Beto, because I am not sure.

I might just be blind but is there any way to see who's viewing a thread you are on?
It unfortunately is not present by default with the new version of Xenforo. It's possible that it is within the list of various add-on's that are available to be manually downloaded to the forum. If that is the case, then we will try to implement it as soon as possible.

Not at this time. I will have a look around and see if I can find a way to implement this.

I posted in a thread earlier and I was getting email notifications. I would rather not have that. (Maybe it was my fault)

You can go to alerts (the bell) -> preferences and tick emails off. I think it's a bit silly to have it as the default setting though.

You may be able to change that within your own notification settings, however by default upon signups we have now made it so new accounts will not receive emails for new messages. Only made that change for the registration page a few hours ago so some may need to manually change settings at https://www.mariokartboards.com/account/preferences

Hope this helps.

If what Stunky said hasn't fixed it, you can also just click the unsubscribe button on the email at the bottom.

Collapse / Expand options
I believe that's a plugin/addon we had that doesn't appear to have any direct update to the newer XenForo versions, however I'll be on the lookout to try and see if there's any solution/replacement to be able to do that.

I notice that alerts don't appear on the page until after I refresh - I will get an email alert that someone replied to a thread but on the website here I dont see it on the alerts tab until I refresh. On the old website they would appear automatically. Maybe you could do something for that?

(this is hardly a necessity so if there are more important things to fix first then thats fine)

Half of my imgur links get autoformatted for absolutely no reason while some do not get autoformatted... (Check out my thread on small match hubs.) Is there way to make my imgur links clickable instead of trying to autoformat them into the post? Thank you.
