By far, this is the most advanced site we have yet to do. I played a lot with Proboards and the admin settings, and here is a list of all the new features and how to use them:
Board Images: You'll see these as you scroll down to locations. Self-explanatory.
Color Palette: You can now save custom colors by clicking on the color button in the post area. You'll see a new section at the bottom where you can save your mixed colors for future use.
Sidebar: It scrolls with us. It holds various links that will be of use. It's just a faster way to maneuver around the site.
Posting Templates: Under your settings you can create post templates, so you can choose font style, text size, colors, etc., and save it. At the bottom of the post area, by "Preview" and "BBCode", you'll see a dropdown. Those are your saved templates. What you see here, with this color scheme, that's a template.
PM Alerts: You get a PM, you now get a popup alerting you to it.
Post Critiques: I'm not entirely sure how this one works, so bear with me. We'll figure it out as we go, but it allows you to either say "Good job" or "Bad job" or whatever to any post you desire. I don't think you can leave a personalized message behind.
Thread Descriptors: As you make threads you will get the subject bar, but you'll get another bar below that. It can be a descriptor of some sort. Like, if a profile, you can put their suit info there, or tag people for a thread.
Image Resizer: Fear not about posting massive images anymore, it'll be auto-resized by the board.
Quick Quote: If you want to make a quick quotation, just highlight the text in question, and an option will appear. That's your quick quote; use that to quote that section, with full quote box applied.
Word counter: Lower right corner, we've had this before though.
NPC Profiles: We can create NPCs now, but only admins can make them. If you want to request an NPC, talk to a staff member, and we'll give you the power to play your NPC.
Relationship Status: As you edit your profile you'll see this. You can post your relationship status, whether it be married, flirting, sexual, etc.
