New Forum Feature: Tipping
Tipping is now live on the site -- please give your thanks to wondersloth for this feature, which he completed on his own time. This feature originally started as one of our one-day-hackathon projects a couple of months ago. It's meant to be a lightweight and easy way to give someone some props for a good response, and will hopefully encourage more variety in the forums.
Preview Widget Updated
Hey! ania1899 has improved the preview widget so that handheld items now preview in shops properly -- which was actually a feature, not a bug, since it never worked properly before. biggrin You can now preview in the Buttercup to your heart's content.
(Also, quick tip for those that don't know: did you know you don't need to close the modal when shopping? After previewing an item you can just click on another store item and the preview will be updated).
Shadow_Dragonz has labored over the forum markup code; it is much cleaner now, which means a) that pages should render faster, and b) it will be easier for us to do forum improvements in the future.
Also fixed: the featured avatar on the home page vanishing when you hover over the menus.
