Since we have now officially closed the old vBulletin forums, we’re shifting more focus over to exploring new features that we can add to these forums. Some members have expressed an interest in having a thread available for reference that would outline new features to the forums as we add them. Additionally, I thought such a thread would be a good way to announce new features to the community, so here it is! I’ll update this OP with new features as they are ready to be announced along with a short explanation of said feature(s) if necessary.
2/17/15: CUSTOM TITLES: We have enabled the ability for you to use the “Real Name” field on your user profile as a custom title of sorts. The Real Name field can be edited in your profile preferences. You may use this space as a means to customize the username portion of your posts. Whatever your “title” is, it will also appear on your user profile.
Additionally, you can use the Real Name/Custom Title field as a means to share your old screen name if you were not able to get it on the new forums.
Please note: all forum rules apply to your custom title. No profanity, racist, homophobic, misogynistic, or other offensive language will be allowed in your custom title. Gearbox Forum staff including Admins and Moderators may ask you to change your title if they deem it offensive based on the forum rules
3/9/15: DEFAULT AVATARS: Added Gearbox character themed default avatars
3/18/15: BORDERLANDS THE HANDSOME COLLECTION CATEGORY: Added the new Borderlands The Handsome Collection category and its corresponding sub-categories to the forums
TRUST LEVELS: Made changes to trust level requirements
3/20/15: ONLINE PLAY AND SUPPORT SUBCATS RENAMED: Per user request, renamed all applicable online play and support subcats to show platform at the beginning of the title for easier viewing.
5/20/15: CUSTOM EMOJIS: Added custom Emojis from the old vBulletin forums!
