    Oct 5, 2016 i got beam, i got flash

    In response to the influx of new members & ktt refugees, i wanted to point out some of our functionality so that shit like this doesn't happen again and make me sad enough to check myself like cudi:
    :currydead:

    ...so here ya go -- a visual list of some of (by far not all) the functionality we've worked tirelessly on these past 2 years (holy shit -- it's almost been 2 years):

    1.) Day/Night Theme Toggle
    self-explanatory

    2.) Mobile App
    o shit waddup there's a f--king App. layout/theme is optimized for mobile + equipped with push notifications to your phone. get it on the Apple App store for iOS, or on the Google Play store for Android
    image.png

    3.) Custom Smilies
    upload your own custom smilies, add mnemonics, use them everywhere

    :breakdance:


    4.) Mention Groups
    subscribe to different 'mention groups', which allow you to be notified (or notify others by tagging the group) of news, songs, artist info, etc. relating to that group topic

    5.) Quick Forums
    customize the forum, allowing you to see only the threads of interest to you, in a single click



    6.) Giphy Integration
    self-explanatory

    7.) The Portal 2.0
    we've recently replaced the old Portal with a new, alternate version. the original Portal was more of a dashboard view of the forum, and it didn't really take off since we ended up integrating the og functionality from there throughout the rest of the site. Portal 2.0 is more of a blog-type view of what's currently poppin here. Automatically updates, and is where our www.sectioneighty.com base url directs to today. some visual updates are needed here...soon

    8.) Bookmarks
    pretty straight-forward: bookmark posts you want to revisit later

    Bonus in lieu of the sidebar currently in constant flood of "I can leak Nina Chop of October 7th" postings:

    Ignore Thread
    ignoring a thread means you don't see it in the sidebar or in new posts. manage your ignored threads via the username dropdown > settings > threads you ignore
