Calypso Time is once again displayed at the bottom of every forum page (bottom right corner of the footer).
Not sure if it works, it shows my local time and I'm nowhere near UTC/GMT.

A new Threads with MindArk Posts link has been added to the navigation bar, which returns a list of of threads that contain posts by any MindArk Official staff members. The results page is sorted by most recent reply.

There is also a new icon in the forum listing and search results pages to indicate threads with posts by MindArk Officials:


I am also working on a widget that will provide direct links to the last several MindArk Official posts, similar to the current New Posts widget visible on the main forum index page.

Delete what post?

I am still working on the Calypso Time displaying local time for some members, if that's what you were referring to.
Yes, I still need to get used to the new forum colours and all and noticed that Svarog mentioned the time-thing already... And then I tried to delete my post... :)

Strictly speaking you can remove my post from 12 minutes ago, your response and this one :)

I appreciated the old forum's ability to filter out certain subforums from the "new posts" function, i.e. not the advanced search which requires a search term, but the simple thread display minus the sections I'm not interested in. Is it here and I missed it somehow, or if not is it asked a lot to restore this?

That feature was provided by a custom add-on to the old forum software and is not a default part of the new software.
I will investigate add-ons that might achieve the same or similar functionality.

A toggle switch has been added which allows members to collapse forum categories on the main forum listing page, reducing the amount of scrolling by minimizing view of less important forum sections.

Is there any way to remove 'Buying and selling" posts from side view? Latest posts category etc ;)
There is currently no feature that allows members to filter out specific forums from appearing in "New Posts" results.
I will investigate add-ons that might offer that functionality.

The old forums didn’t allow those posts to be filtered either. Personally, I enjoy seeing what is for sale and what people want to buy. But I buy and sell a lot of stuff.

I am investigating various options for making the process of embedding a Gallery image into a thread or post as streamlined as possible.
The drag-and-drop functionality I think you are referring to (similar to how you can drag a file from your PC into a Gmail message) is not really ideal for a forum interface.
It would be much better to not need to leave the forum editor page at all, and instead have a button or widget that simplified inclusion of images.

The fonts currently in place are the stock fonts that are included with XenForo.
I will check the old server to confirm which fonts were available in the past, and try to incorporate any that are missing.

My albums working again, what is great! Thanks 711!

But my old threads that have inserted images from those albums, none of those images show up. I kinda feel that all my registered past here on forum was cleared with this forum transition.

I don't want to edit them all, some are really old and don't even make sense now, but in a last resort I wont have any other option.

For example when I searched "Solis Beans tower" on Google, I immediately would found the picture that I wanted, now it not showing up. I think it was bad for game, lot of content got lost because the addresses changed.

Can I still hope that a fix is coming for this?

Is this still being investigated, or did I miss some changes? Was looking in the settings again recently.

Yes it did, e.g. I had the Compet subsection excluded.
