    The forums/website have been updated. I hope you guys like the updates. :) The changes are outlined below. If you have any questions, feedback, or bug reports, please share them here. Thanks!

    The timer for creating new posts has been reduced from 30 seconds to 15.

    The Recent Threads section on the homepage sidebar now shows the 7 most recent threads, instead of 3.

    You can now add up to 15 people in a conversation.

    You can now "Like" messages in conversations.

    You can now search your conversations using the search box in the upper right corner. You will only be able to see conversations that you have started or joined in your search results.

    Many new trophies have been added, and point totals have been updated. I have changed the trophy ranks to reflect the same structure as our ranks on the Semi-Vanilla Survival server. Please note that they are not directly related, only the names are the same. You unlock new ranks on the forum by getting more trophy points. You can see all the trophies here: http://www.sandlotminecraft.com/help/trophies

    There is a new ratings system on posts. Not only can you "Like" posts, but now you can award them with different ratings such as "Helpful" or "Beautiful." The total ratings you give and receive will show up on your profile page. These new ratings are also tied into the new trophy points system.

    Thanks c0w!


    I have one idea though about ratings.

    On some servers I play on, there is a Helper "Lapis" and a Moderator "Emerald". These would be awarded to posts that staff thought were very good.

    Could this be added?


    The updates look great! Thanks c0w!

    If staff think a post is good, they can use any of the other ratings. I don't see how that is needed.

    I can see people making a convo with their friend or another account and just making useless posts and liking each other'posts to get more likes.

    On computers can you see what a rating stands for?



    I bet there won't be many Grandmasters now...

    I think that players would understand that their post was very thoughtful or good when they get a staff rating.
