So I'm fairly excited about the next update of our forum software (xenforo 2.1), and I decided to quickly list a few of the upcoming features that I think you'll be excited about as well.
clicking on any of those links will take you to the official xenforo update page with more information. the above features the the most relevant to most users here, but for a complete list of new features, look here.

the short version is that you'll be able to use bbcode on profiles (including adding videos/music/pics/etc), bookmarks and reactions (i.e. post ratings) are becoming a core part of the software (instead of using an addon) and will be much easier to use for those on mobile devices, and push notifcations will make StP more 'app like' in that you'll get notifications instantly sent to your phone when someone replies or tags you in a post (much like facebook). of course you'll be able to opt out of that (and it won't work on apple devices cause apple is stupid).

not sure what the ETA is, but shouldn't be more than a few weeks out since this has already been released as a beta and developers are already releasing compatible addons. if you have questions about any of these features, just let me know and i'll be happy to explain them in more detail.

Just to update anyone curious, the next version of xenforo that is bringing those features i listed in the OP is in version beta 5, so while there's no ETA on when it's going to be ready, I would expect it to come out in about another month or so.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $200.00 of $200.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
