It's about time we updated the forum!

We're currently running a version of XenForo 1.5 from 2016 and the latest version is XenForo 2.1 which was released this year.

Here's an idea of what we have missed since then:


XF 2.x was a complete rewrite so, as such, the style we're using now and some other functionality will not be available automatically.

However, I've made a start and thanks to @GERuss we've got an excellent remaster of the ValveTime.net style implemented in the new version.

This means we can launch fairly quickly, perhaps even as early as Sunday.

First, however, I wanted to give you guys an opportunity to take a look.

You can do that here:

Thanks Chris, the new features sound great and it's looking really good! I like the round av's for general use, though I would miss being able to show an expanded image on the profile page, but I could get used to it.

Very nice. Multiquote works! (although I forgot the "insert quotes" button was a thing so maybe it worked before lol)

Personally appreciate that the notifications dont get canceled just by mouseover on the notification button anymore.

It did 😆

Glad you agree. It was a contentious change at the time. There are still some who argue that an additional click is somehow too complicated or unintuitive 🤔

sorry for the double post, but cheers to whomever changed the forum listing back to its old vertical format and only left the little half width cards for the game-specific forums. it reminds me of old times
