Forum suggestions | Unofficial concepts

Nowadays forums are quite inactive, and for a long time we haven’t had much updates.
Here’s a few suggestions to revive forum & attract more people. I have put some time and effort into making these mockups, so any feedback will be appreciated. Hopeful @Siskea will notice it as well.

Exclusive forum only events and giveaways, leaderboard prizes
rewards for the most active forum members, not necessarily in-game items. Maybe some forums related goods, listed a few ideas below.

Forum cosmetics
Such as name colors, and gradients. Medals/titles (displayed in your profile or under your name);

Signature and status customization
profile signatures (appears under each of your messages);
custom status (appears under your name; limited to only a few characters);
available for members & regulars only.

Please note that this is not an official concept. Mockups made in Figma in case anyone is wondering.
Comment your thoughts about this ideas!

While it would be cool, you should note that these forums were not made from scratch - they’re made using the Discourse forum software.

And as far as I know, Discourse doesn’t allow stuff like name gradients.

Signatures are not included in the basic package, BUT there’s a signature plugin the admins could install.

While the tags next to names do exist, they’re tied to groups. You would need to create a group every single time you want to change your status.

The signature stuff reminds me of the growtopia forums for some reason. Was it implemented there? I can’t remember.

Yes, they use vBulletin or phpBB or some software where signatures are standard.

Everything is possible. You don’t have to use pre-made plugins

The admin team can’t even reasonably update the game itself, I seriously doubt that they could update the forum code.

Siskea said that any forum suggestion are appreciated. Let’s say it’s long-term one

Thanks for this, @Winter_Kangaroo! I like the idea of rewards other than badges for active members, or maybe showing medals/badges next to your name :thinking:

We’ve had a few comments that the forums aren’t as active anymore, so suggestions like this are really appreciated!
