Hey ladies and gents,
Small announcement with some important changes I wanted to cover.
We've come a LONG way since the inception of this board. It may have only been a few months, but the growth has been exceptional, and we couldn't be more happy with the progress everyone here has made.
With this growth, it means we've gotten a more powerful server, provided by yours truly. Back in the day, we didn't have a lot of storage space to offer members, so each account had a limit on how much stuff they could upload GLOBALLY. Meaning that if you uploaded too many photos in your posts, you might hit a limit that stopped you from uploading completely in the future, due to hitting your account limit. With all of the new storage we have, I thought this rule was a little bit on the limiting side, so I got rid of it. However, I realized there was many inconsistencies with some groups and what access they had, and there was a lot of issues between groups on what people had, so I went through all of them and gave everyone pretty much standard access across the board, but obviously more perks for users who have higher ranks on the forums.
Here's a list of upgrades I've given to most, if not all users:
All users now have unlimited global storage, but can only upload 10MB per post/ comment / reply, Vets, sponsors, supporters, mods, and admins all have increased limits as well to give them incentives for reaching those titles.
Everyone has unlimited storage for PM's which was locked previously to 50. There are still limits on SENDING PM's, but receiving and STORING Pm's is now unlimited, so you don't have to delete old messages. Abusing the new PM limits will surrender your rights and mods and admins can disable your messenger privileges.
You can now react to however many posts you want, if you agree with posts, you don't have to run around like Simon Cowell and only give out your 10 reactions, it's unlimited.
For those of you hitting limits when trying to upload your super cool ULTRA HD muscles to your avatar, the file size limit for your avatar has been lifted to a whopping 10MB (it was previously 20 times smaller than that). So your avatar can now be better looking than a flip phone picture! The size of the picture can also be 1000 x 1000 now, instead of 150 x 150
Name changes are now allowed, however, you are only permitted to change it once per 30 days, and members can track your name change history on your profile. In the future, you will be able to purchase name changes with the point system that will be implemented very soon.
Personal cover photos for your profiles can now be unlimited in size, rather than 2MB.
For some reason, some groups had limits on how many times they could post in a day. All groups and users can post as many times as they want in a day, there will never ever be limits on that, we love the content our community produces, and this was a configuration error, and will never be enabled again, post to your hearts desire!
You can now edit your posts up to an hour after you post them, some users only had 5 minutes before, now it's drastically increased.
Gif avatars! You can now upload gifs to your avatar and have an animated profile picture!
Many many more limits were also raised, and you may notice them day to day, but they were too minor to post about here.
Once again, we are so happy with the growth of our community since it's inception, and we are excited for the future of this board, if you have any other ideas or limits you want to see raised for regular members, please reply below.
Thanks again NL, and thanks for having me, it's amazing to be here,
