Hey, just a suggestion: There is a character limit when you search the site and you have not put enough characters into the search box. I assume this is to prevent huge stress on the server when somebody enters something like "Buk". But other times, a 2-word search is prevented when those are exact 2 words.
I think they've always been there, but they're more visible now. As you can see, they don't really do anything unless you're a moderator, so I'm not sure why they're even visible outside of the moderating group...
I've never watched SOA and it doesn't sound like my kind of series, but I did like the idea of batches that have a hidden meaning only known to mambers of "the gang".
Maybe we can find similar things out of the Bukowski-world. (Like "Most beautiful woman in town" - or better not. No I'm sorry. I apologize. Just imagine the former "first-9" to wear that batch!
Or have members with fewer than 100 posts labeled "Jimmy the Dwarf"! No, No, I'm sorry.)
Yeah, I liked that they weren't really obvious descriptions too. I thought about Bukowski-related things, but they're all pretty long. To keep these on a single line they need to be 16 or so characters.
We could go back to using those SOA descriptors, they would just be in text form. I got the images to work in this new version, but they break pretty badly when you look at a thread on a phone or small tablet.
They were not, indeed. I only learned today that Sons Of Anarchy is an American television series, and that those badges were obviously related to it...
The concept of "Active members" and "Well-known members" was unclear, at least for me. "100+ posts" and "1,000+ posts" is more convincing. The overall look of the forum and its functionality are great. Clearly the work of a pro.
