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.

Ahh. Camping out next to the Interstate in the NM desert. With Cinnabons, a giant Coke, and $20 kicked down to me today. I got 4 rides which got me 100 miles. And they were all amazing people... one guy gave me a business card which was about spreading love and that was so fucking positive. Then I got picked up by a really old Mexican couple. I am still so homesick, yet so happy and exhilarated
Reacquainting myself with STP after a stupid long time. Bare with me as I post in the wrong places and suck at pretty much everything here
Looks like my departure is pencilled for the 29th of April. Later then I wanted but still gives me a week of hitching to get to a place to work for the winter and a bit more time to pack and sell stuff.
Back on the grind of commercial fishing despite several years while being on a hiatus, pretending it was retirement. [everything is relevant, nothing is absolute.]

The recent post looking for a road dog in NYC, reminded me of the time I tried to convince @croc that hopping a turnstile in the subway constituted catching out of Manhattan....He didn't buy it....
AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO ALL MY FELLOW TRAVELERS: Please stop telling me about your bowel movements, thank you.
Beautiful couple days for the Atlantic Coast Line
Ah, nothing beats a night’s rest in the desert of New Mexico. I saw an amazing view of Albuquerque last night. Now I gotta finish packing up the tent and get on with hitchhiking to Texas!
Got a ride all the way to Portland! Will be there a few days, til Sunday at least.
Walking to North Bend. Didn’t seem to be any good hitch spots in Coos Bay.
