    This update was to keep up with web standards. Most of the software is default and we have a ton of features turned on.

    Have a serious question? We are happy to answer it.

    Subforums
    In order to create sections that go with the homepage and a mobile app we are working on sections had to be formed.
    A lot of the forums got categorized in to these sections. You can find the lists of forums in the sections by clicking Subforum or the folder on mobile to bring up the list.

    Prefixes, Filters, and Sorting - Where did that forum go?
    The forums have been reorganized to condense some of the sections that were not getting posted in. Within the main forums we now have Prefixes that can be filtered to sort the information and threads you want to view.
    Select Filters (top right of the thread view) then use the drop-down for the prefix you want to view and it will only display threads with the prefix.
    You can also read the regular thread section and click on a prefix of a thread and it will sort them by that prefix as well.

    Tabs – Featured, Trending, Latest, New Posts, Forum List
    The tabs can be found at the top of the forum.

    Featured is a curated list of all the content that moderators and admins would like to highlight.
    Trending is the hottest threads at that time.
    Latest is a list of the newest threads.
    New Posts is the list of threads with new posts in them since your last visit.
    Forum List – List of all the forum categories.

    Achievements & Leaderboards
    We have added in achievements and leaderboards. These are a fun way for members to be rewarded for what they are doing on the site. You can find the achievements in your profile menu at the top of the page. If you look at the achievements page, you can also see what task you need to complete in order to earn each achievement. Once you earn an achievement, you will gain XP (Experience Points) that will help you get to higher levels. Some achievements are still in the process of being configured and achievements will be rewarded for tasks that were completed before the system was in place.

    Voting​

    Several content types on the forums, including questions, suggestions, and reviews, support up and down voting, rewarding the people who posted the content and allowing the best quality content to be highlighted.

    Eventually, this system once we get it tuned up will result in winning items from around the BD office…

    Classifieds
    We have changed the format of the classifieds. We hope to cut down on the time it takes to manage them. The new system now tracks buyer/sellers for better confidence in purchasing and buying.
    WE ARE STILL WORKING ON THE CLASSIFIED LAYOUT, SEARCH, AND LOCATION.

    This format change will cut down on:
    - Constant flaming of ads
    - Flippers
    - Scammers
    - Old stale ads
    - Missing ad sections
    - Times out ads after 30 days

    Where did my classifieds go? The old classifieds are here you may no longer post anything new in them, they are dead. If you had an ad you should move it to the new classifieds by copy/pasting the description and adding the photos.

    But I don't want to shop out of town!
    Use the filter to only display ads in your area.

    You can now change your own damn username!
    Hover over name top right.

    Select Account Details. Click Change. It will allow you to put in a change request.

    We are still tweaking away at it as we find bugs and difficulties. Nothing is final and there are two more phases that need to be installed over the next month or two as we finish them.

    Constructive criticism and suggestions will be taken seriously.
