I can't believe I don't have a recurring update thread. Anyway this thread will be used on what new features are going on with the forum and announcements.

Currently I'm trying to work on a better thread view that would allow you to view snippets and thumbnails from a thread before clicking on it. Currently you will find thread snippets on desktops throughout all boards and I'm currently expermintenting on https://forum.agoraroad.com/index.php?forums/cassettes-vinyl-releases.21/ to see what the new view will look like. Its still in beta so it will look messed up but it's still usable. Have a good day everyone

Testing out new forum styling, take a look at video game section and the cassette section. I'm trying to see how I can improve the UI.

I put in a new background and now added "stamps" in the emoji menu. Here are a few of them.

Put in some new reactions and took out "nice" and "good vibes" because you can use pepsi enjoyment, coffee like, or love instead

Okay I put back the "good vibes, and "nice" reactions. Put in new geocities emotes on the smilies section, and put Playstation Home theme on the main page. May change it. Additionally, there is a new BBCODE the icon is a camera and it lets you post images you have previously uploaded and the images of others. Below are some examples of the smilies

Hey everyone! So I added some new awards that you can earn while participating in the forum and I also added a "Agoracitite Collection" for donators and patreon members.

For Agoracities Collection, its basically a mix of Geo/Neocitites gifs, stamps, and also a lot of modern stuff. It is still a growing collection and im tweaking some of the code but it will let you display those images from your profile, see the screenshots below.

Hey everyone! SO I have some updates, I added the Silver and bronze banners for patron members. And Agoracities is no longer donation only but you have to be Level 3 and above and have 100 posts. This is to give to OG agora travelers and those that frequent the road something to standout from the rest. SO check your profiles if you reached level 3 and remember you level up when you collect more awards!

Another update! I have implemented "Agora Gangtags" i stole the idea from the Something Awful. Its basically similar to agoracities except they are little tags and gifs that you can have on your profile. You will gain new tags every time you level up and it starts from level 6. You can see ans example of it on my profile. Its that dunkin doughnuts gangtag that I stole from that forum. I am still gonna implement new goodies that you can obtain by increasing your level and award score. Well that is all have a nice day! Oh and the live stream will happen in mid December.

Added new awards, out a second theme changer button at the top of the home page, put a list of forum categories in the sidebar and other "agora Ads" on the sid bar that links to threads. More agora gang tag awards added and I think that's it.
