    Hey guys, I figured I'd set this up. Basically, whenever Vash updates the forum with a new feature, I will modify this post to tell you of it!

    LATEST (June 11, 2015): Pixel Gun World Section!

    A new section for Pixel Gun World has been created. Even though the game has not been released yet, the section can be used to discuss the game!
    Additionally, because some members of this forum were chosen as beta testers, expect some first-hand footage of the game!

    ARCHIVE
    Some new changes have been made today.
    1. Shoutbox: Alerts when a thread has been created or replied to
    2. Post Ratings: You now have more options to express your views of a post instead of just "like"
    3. Username Changes: If you are an Active Member (75+ posts and registered for 30+ days), you can now change your username via the Settings page
    4. Similar Threads: When creating or viewing a thread, forum will now show you similar threads
    1. No large signatures allowed. Please keep images to an appropriate signature size.
    2. No more embedded media allowed (YouTube, etc).
    3. No innaprorpiate content on links allowed.

    Failure to comply to these rules will result in a warning. Continuned violations will result in suspension of your account. We will not implement these rules until January 12 to give users time to fix their signatures. We will be on the lookout and modify signatures that we see in violation.
    Hey guys, so as many of you know the forum was pretty wacky today. Well, the cause for this was that apparently VashX almost forgot to set our domain to auto-renew on GoDaddy (the host of our website's domain name). However, amidst all the chaos and catastrophe today, the forum is back up and running, and the domain has been set for auto-renew, so we should hopefully never have this happen again in the near future. Sorry for the alarm everyone!
    VashX has stated that users can have their names changed finally! The catch? You must have 150+ posts in order to request (via PM) a namechange from VashX. So, to those who have met that requirement, awesome! You can change your name! To those who haven't gotten there yet, don't go spamming up topics for posts now, ya hear?
    The new Christmas theme is here, and Vash (with his limitless admin powers and such) has made snow fall on the forum! This'll only be here until the Christmas season ends, so enjoy!
    Hey guys, as you are aware, Vash has updated the site's theme with Halloween in mind. It will mostly only be here until Halloween, so enjoy it while it's here!
    Vash has confirmed this was merely an exploit in the shoutbox, as it was made by a third-party developer, and not by XenForo. Hencefourth, there has been no real "hack" to the forum security. You may calm yourselves now, and resume forum activity like usual.
    Hey guys, so VashX has apparently added spoilers! This means you can condense your posts so they don't look like a chapter from a novel anymore! To activate them, highlight the text you want in the spoiler. Next, click the icon next to the video icon, and select "Spoiler" from the drop-down menu. Then, enter the title you want your spoiler to have, and click continue. And you're done! You've just now hidden multiple lines of text for the sake of peoples sanity.
    GoldMan27 has returned as an official Moderator!

    That's right, I have returned from retirement to protect this forum oncemore! I won't be as fervently active as I was in the summer, but I will still be regularly checking in and making sure everything is going smooth. Hope to see you all around!
    Custom Titles

    Any member who has 75+ posts, and has been a registered/active user for 30+ days, is eligible to change their title. They may do this by selecting the "Personal Details" tab in their profile overview from the drop-down menu. Hope you enjoy!
