So much good shit! Please can we be able to upload image thumbnails for threads (and can it automatically show thumbnails if there are images in the thread, like reddit).

You can already attach images to posts (not comments), although right now they only show up if they're in a blog/article layout. Could take a look at adding some kind of thumbnail to a post on the forum overview.

Oh I really really really would love if we could post images in comments. Again, if there was some level of text formatting but also with the ability to post images and embed videos. It opens up so much potential for the community to have dedicated video threads and image threads, but also to contribute some interesting content in general. Out of the several forums I've been on in my life, the ones that captivated me most were the ones that provided the ability to post all kinds of content. I've started screenshot threads, gameplay threads, trailer threads, game soundtrack threads, etc. I hope there's something you can do? :) I'd be forever in your debt, Ix! <3333333333

You already can! To attach an image, do this:

![image title](image url)

It's markdown formatting. So if you write this:

![clown](http://i.telegraph.co.uk/multimedia/archive/03087/rexfeatures_159702_3087840b.jpg)

...it automatically turns into this:

clown

And the same goes for text formatting:

**This text will be bold**
_This text will be italic_

- This is a list item
- This is another list item

Really? How can you get reply notifications? Where do they show up?

Well nowhere yet, but the thread should look different if someone has replied to your post or comment.

I found minor bugs:

I was trying to register and clicked the "login" button, instead of the "register account button".

First: why is that button there? It's confusing. For someone with an account that ends up in there, theres a "login" option in the bar at the top already, and it's useless for someone that didn't register already.

So I pressed "back" in my browser, and the page loaded almost perfectly, except that the CAPTCHA doesn't work with a message "from google.com" saying it can't communicate with the reCAPTCHA servers.

Reloading the page and putting my chosen password again worked.

I just posted the comment above and went to my own page have a look. Under it, in the "last ten comments" section, it says: "Posted 5 days ago in 'Bugs, problems, feedback, etc' ", which is incorrect.

Fixed it!

Looking into it.

Ah nice one, fixed that one too. Thanks!

I saw the post "[New Feature] Reviews are now LIVE!" had no gems. So, assuming they work like reddit's upvote, i gave it some of mine. But it puts me at the top of the page again, which is annoying. I won't be giving anything to worthwhile posts if it will put me at the top of the page and I have to scroll back down.

User handles link to "http://www.powergamer.co/posts/user.html" which returns 404. I assume it's supposed to link to that user's personal page? What good does having a good personal page does if it isn't linked where it is most useful?

I want a signature in my posts, like it is tradition on forums.

Linking my steam account didn't brought in the games I have there.

Clicking the envelope at the top of the page takes me to a blank page if there isn't any messages, it should say there's no [new] mail in there.

Clicking my gems at the top of the page doesn't do anything. It should show what I gave gems to, or where I got gems from.

I want a 'save' function, like the one on reddit. I have some guide for games bookmarked this way there, like a mod list for KSP and how to make pretty curves on Cities:Skylines. I feel this place could have that too, so I want to save them. And I want to save them when reading at work and to use them at home, so bookmarking on my browser won't do.

Advanced feature: I want the site to push notifications to my browser like gmail does when someone messages or replies to me, even if I don't have a tab open.

Eventually I will AJAXify all of the gem stuff so that it feels seamless, I'm just holding off a bit until the platform is solid enough to start implementing snazzy things like that.

Ah nice catch. Fixed it.

Might be coming, haven't decided yet. The signature area is mainly reserved for achievement badges and such, but we'll take a look at this area later on.

Yeah right now it does nothing. Looking into integrating with the Steam API.

Clicking the envelope at the top of the page takes me to a blank page if there isn't any messages, it should say there's no [new] mail in there.

Will look into an empty state for the inbox.

Hmm maybe...although we're not really tracking it at the moment. Would be kind of cool with an activity log though.

Not sure I understand exactly what you mean here...save games? Posts?

activity log

This is important. I got 10 gems from you, only knew were they came from because you told me. Than got two more, had no idea were from. Had to go looking at my comments to see.
It won't help foster good comments if people can't see what they were rewarded for.
I doesn't show up even in the "last 10 comments" section in my user page.
