I've done a little re-organizing with the site, hopefully for the better. As you've already noticed, we have a "Site News" forum now where any new updates regarding the forum or the homepage will be placed. We also have an "Contests" forum where official contests will be held, and an "Events" forum where site-wide events related to LittleBigPlanet will go. We have the ability to reward users with vBExperience points, so I plan on using that ability to reward winners of official contests. Also, permissions disallow users from posting new topics in these forums. Other than that, not much has changed.

What do you think?

That's alright. Anyone else have any qualms or suggestions?

Looks a little funky, but that's probably due to the fact that I've grown so used to the old one.

I'm here because of the vibe and the people are fantastic...
The cosmetic improvements are just icing on the cake...
I will let you know when the icing gets too rich...:p

I think it's very good and suitable cartman. with more traffic coming in, organisation will keep this place tidy. Good effort.

Hey, I like that too. But I think what we're going to do is allow you to buy those icons with points you earn, and pick which ones you like. So....

Before: You get another icon as you reach X amount of posts
Now: Based on the points you get for posts, rep, replies, other factors, YOU get to choose if you want the icons, and which ones you like the most, and buy them with the points you earn. :)

Very cool, and another great use with the points. Any hints at what else is in store for us? Or any ideas?

Was never a fan of the icons, not a big deal to me.

The one thing I'd like to see is to divide up the packages into individual things. For instance, I just want the ability to delete my threads and custom titles. Don't care about the PM space, etc.

I really want the custom title personally. However if i get the gold - why not just go for elite eh?

LittleBigPlanet related items, definitely. Levels, objects, ect. We'll come up with more over time.

Right now, it is impossible without loads of work on our side. I'd have to make a custom usergroup for every different combination of things you'd like. Maybe in the future we'll introduce a "custom" upgrade which allows you to specify which ones you'd prefer. What do you think?

Oh, okay. The custom would be cool, but if it's too much work, it's no big deal.
