I'M IMPORTANT "Site Updates"

This thread will be be for all the current and future updates to the site, myself and @Spikey will add to this thread for all the back-end and front-end additions to ChatBanter.

Latest updates
  1. TPOM (Top Poster Of Month) has been added you will see a nice purple banner displayed in your postbit and on your profile
  2. Live Statistics on the site, you will see a sidebar widget with Latest Posts/Latest Threads.
  3. Site should be bug free so if anyone can let me know how the site is running and if you can see any problems please let me know.
I made the site logo and if anyone has some design skills please post some new ones below for me to look at and others - should we change the current one?

Got a nice update coming over the weekend for a better way to display articles and getting better content showing on the site.

Hope everyone is enjoying the site as it comes to its first month of being open, its come around quickly and i haven't started to advertise it yet ... remember keeping safe and well is the most important thing in this crazy times.

More updates to come over the next week or so.

Happy Dance GIF

Chat Banter has successfully been upgraded to the latest xenforo 2.2 Beta 6, this looks like the last testing update and more than likely will be rolling out a more supported update next week.

How is eveyone finding the site so far? is eveything running okay? no bugs or issues to report to me? we have seen some great topics being created and nice activity going around, what would you like to see next? has anyone got some suggestions on what you would like to see?
Everything is running fine. They new updates are good. User friendly. The have really worked on UI/UX

Happy Halloween 🎃🎉

Fresh new light style to go along side all the new updates our community runs on.

I'll be planning on making a dark style to this in due course.

It's certainly been a crazy few months all and today we found out that a second lockdown is coming on Thursday next week. I'm curious to know how everyone is doing? Hope you are all keeping safe and secure.

Love the new style, but is it possible to change the notification number colour? It sort of blends in, so I lost it a bit when the site first loaded. Otherwise, it looks fantastic!

Evening all,

I have installed a new little additon of "Moods" that you can choose from the user dropdown panel, loads for you to pick from, its a good way to express how you are feeling or on the day you have had.

see below to see how you will find it.

site update 11.08.20

So i have installed a custom username add-on that will allow you to change the colour and style of your name to stand out from the rest. i have fully activated it to all but i want peoples thoughts on if it should be allowed to be used for all members or maybe have it once a certian target is hit for the site?
