Here are some of the new features and updates:
- phpBB forum software has been updated to latest stable version - there shouldn't be any issues anymore with errors showing up and spambots.
- Driver Madness is now General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliant. The GDPR Policy can be read here.
- A new Steam integration has been added which allows login via Steam, as well as integration in the profile and signature.
- To complete the look at the main index page of the forums there is now a sidebar! Currently featuring three embedded albums by Allister Brimble.
- The section previously known as Downloads has been now renamed as Official Media. It's going to host Driver media of official and semi-official nature. This change was also needed in order to make space for a fully functional Downloads section on which I'm currently working on and expected to be activated in the coming weeks.
- Several emojis used in the Discord server have been added here as well. If there's a demand, even more can be added.
- Finally, The Driver Syndicate and REDRIVER2 forum categories have been added. They will be fully moderated by SOAP.
Huge thanks to bb_42001 for helping with the paid plugins and granting me permission to perform this upgrade.
