New features:
1. A pop-up with Similar Threads will show under the Thread Title when creating a new thread. This should help our members avoid duplicate threads.

06 June 2018 - We've added new options to the "Following" system.


Members can now choose if they want to receive alerts when the member that they follow does one of these actions:
  • User create new threads
  • User replies into thread
  • User update new status
When you "Follow" a member, you will be prompted to select for which of the above actions you want to receive a notification.

For the members that you already follow, you can change these settings by going to the "Following" page in the User Control Panel. Next to the each member name you will see an "Alert Options" button. Click on this button to update your preferences.

To give our members better control over their account, we're now allowing our members to take the following actions:

1. Change the username for the User Control Panel. This action is available once every 365 days.

The other members can view the previous member username by visiting the member's profile.

2. Deactivate Account from the the User Control Panel. When deactivated, other members can't view the profile, send messages or find the memeber via search. Also, the member won't receive any type of notifications.

Members who have deactivated their account, have a 14 days self-reactivation period, then only the staff members can reactivate the account. At the end of the year, we will delete all the accounts that are deactivated.

  • In the Space Bar forum, only members with more than 100 posts will be able to create new threads or post replies.
  • We've created a new "Verified" badge for members who are well-known to this community and for which we could verify some or all of the submitted details.
