    Welcome.

    3.0 is us really taking a step back and re-evaluating what a forum should be, versus what has largely become a cookie cutter standard of visual & feature content. Every function, feature, screen, and activity has been re-worked -- mostly entirely from the ground up. We tried to keep (and build upon) as many familiar concepts as possible, while introducing a cleaner experience that invokes more discussion in a quicker, easier way.

    Shoutouts to Loyalty for getting the ball rolling and being available for the many (often stupid) coding questions I had along the way and for doing the heavy lifting and day-long coding sessions when I couldn't at times, to Koolo for never wanting to see this fail and for keeping things afloat while I was neck-deep in 3.0, and to Hasman for blessing us with a visual foundation to run with -- if it weren't for the sheer beautiful concept that was crafted, I very likely wouldn't have seen this through (that's truth). And last, but very not least shoutout to all of the Staff who have provided input, testing, images, writings, & feedback throughout the last year and a half of progress. As of a few days ago, there were over 3,000 replies to the several 3.0 related discussion threads in the staff sxn.

    To give a little context, 2.0 launched January 18th, 2016, and we had already started a thread on January 3rd (pre-launch) discussing what we were then calling "version 2.5"...and almost all of those ideas were morphed over time and implemented into what you see in their final 3.0 version here today.

    I've easily put more of myself into this than any personal project I've undertaken before. And it’s easily taken 10x’s the number of development hours as 2.0 did. I really hope you like it. Sorry for the wait.

    Hello everyone! Thank you all for your loyalty and sticking with us over the years, especially those of you who've been here since 1.0! I'm glad to be apart of this place and was happy to work on 3.0 until Slyk took it over and did 99% of the work. Shoutouts to all of the staff that helped out in their own ways and everyone else who had their own ideas over the past few years of what they wanted to see in a forum.

    Enjoy the new features, layout, etc. and of course provide feedback along the way. Tag Help or any of us individually if you need anything. Thanks for being a great community.

    I'm still seeing @dna hits posts...I was under the impression we were phasing that out in 3.0?

    I used it pretty much any time I made a longer post...but that just might be cuz I’m an editor so after I write something I like to see how it’s gonna actually look when it’s published while I go over it to make sure it makes sense and for grammar/spelling/etc.

    (or a post with a bunch of images/videos/embeds to make sure they look right)

    I used it at least a few times a week. Not a huuuuuge deal but I was a frequent user of it lol

    What’d you use the preview option for? I know that’s kinda a dumb question, but preview was always one of the pieces that I thought was used maybe once or twice a month and could be carved out and not missed...I tried removing some of the extra “bloat” that was largely unused and/or didnt offer much (though, I suppose that’s subjective).
