Additional detailsI am also looking into changing the user title system a bit to add in new titles to earn, and the current titles may be modified, along with the points needed to earn it.
Research is being put into rewarding forum users with temporary special groups based on a criterion! Only few people will get a group during a given time, and potential criteria could be winning a DiamondFire event. These groups do expire. This idea could be scrapped, however, and we will adjust it toward community feedback. Moreover, a separate page or module may be added to link all of DiamondFire's media in a single place to access.
Spotlights/promotional may be added soon on some pages to promote DiamondFire's media content. Showcased content could additionally be plots selected by admins and other staff to help give creators recognition for their awesome work!
We'll keep you updated!
