Also, the mobile version needs some sort of way to see if theres new posts without actually visiting subforums or threads

1. Security Certification. Get it. No reason not to IMO. But I dunno what that takes also.
2. Line between posts is a bit too faint.
3. Account Settings, Avatars, Signatures, Profile Info.
4. Forum links at the TOP of the front page, and on the page period for ALL pages, including the Account Settings page which currently only has a link to the front of the page.
5. Shoutbox like the last site. If I have a really situational, temporary problem I need fixed NOW, I gotta have a place to post where I don't have to worry about making a clone thread of a thread that's already a thing, but I can't find it because the search function isn't that good.
6. If possible, Tags on forum threads. To be added by any mods if they weren't added already. IF also possible, auto-complete categories for specific tags, said categories, instead of being established by the users, established at first by the mods, then by request maybe.
7. Search functionality on the forum to interface with forum thread tags so searching for your problem is WAY easier.
8. If no signatures are a thing, then a place to put u to 4 links, and a place to list our Bases in the various games by Ape Apps that can HINGE on player cooperation, or player cooperation is massively valuable, like My Colony for example.
9. Darker grey boxes and lighter grey boxes to help differentiate posts from the background itself. This is really more for appearances sake. Seeing the posts look like they're attached to the backgronud, while it's good in theory, in practice people usually don't do it well, and IMHO it's not in this instance. Looks sort of hastily done. Works well when doing a Minimalist approach to webpage design.
10. Separation visually of the forum/text bodies on any page from the Header of the web page. This is usually done because it makes a site look ALOT better than when it's not there.
11. Forum thread auto-locking to prevent people from crying about thread Necroing, gate it at maybe half a year. After a year of no activity, a thread automatically locks itself, or something like that. Or, even better, said thread deletes itself.
Either that, or as far as forum rules go, Necroing doesn't exist.

IMHO, the site's a bit too young and incomplete to announce a migration to it and have people probly go for it, because the last forum just looks 500% better and doesn't have feature gaps. Ofcourse this is purely temporary and it's probly a WIP, but these are just my truthful opinions, ofcourse given because I love My Colony and by extension, I love Ape Apps and the forums themselves.

Thank you everybody, these are all really good suggestions, and I am working on them! Feel free to keep spamming me with more. I want to get it right before I migrate the software to my RP Forum website, which has a pretty large user base.

If I got it right, the accounts from this forum will also be used for cloud sync and ad-free version of the game. For that, I would like to be able to change my password from time to time :-)
