    I found out that I have 36 points. What is this point thing?

    I clicked on "What's New" and read a thread. After reading I click on "What's New" again and the thread that I had read does not appear :(

    The point system is a new feature found in this forum software. It is a system to reward users to participate in forums.

    What's New basically shows the whole forum activities, you can try the new feature 'Watch Thread' to receive notifications via forum when there are new replies :D

    Hi CM,

    For eg;

    I clicked on "What's New" and read this thread. Without any posting, I close this page and read other thread. Suddenly I wanted to return to this thread to post something but when I clicked on "What's New", this thread does not appear, unlike the previous version.

    I looked further into this. As mentioned, you might want to try the 'Watched' thread function, very useful for those who 'camp' on topics they are currently discussing as new replies will have notifications in 'Alerts'

    Hello CM,

    maybe the layout or color could follow the previous version?

    the newer software really look empty and format are really difficult.
    Avatar size is smaller and smiley are limited..

    Good Morning Bro Onionaut,
    Just to check with you whether the new format has "Archive Section" under The Marketplace just like the old format ?
    Thank you and hope to hear from you.

    maybe something like the following:
    - last reply/post
    - notice that no youtube link ? or did i miss it..
    - something that i really like about the previous version was this box of text in the main page, whereby it show the recently discussed topics.

    just some suggestions :)

    1. See the blue icon? thats the last/latest reply post

    2. YouTube code is obsolete, now you can just paste the url and it will auto embed for you ;)

    3. Ah yes, that box, coming soon... ;)

    ermm, can't find the blue icon.. where is it located?

    cool, this software is smart.
    Great, simply love that box of text :p
    are you going to insert a new group of smiley or emoji?

    i also saw that you have the Trophies award, i suppose the previous record can't carry forward to the new platform.
    what are these trophies award about? can trade in for a Maldives trip when full? keke :D

    It is beside every thread in the forum, small little blue dot.

    Yes, adding new smileys and emoticons is in the task list. :D

    Trophies Award system is based on postcount award system in previous software,Maldives ah, i also want to go leh but exp. But will work towards more features for the forums. Perhaps online contest as bro Darkcrafts has suggested to me a while back :)

    I think the text are hard to read and colours too plain.
