2019-12-24

New

  • Added forum posts highlighting for 3 credits.

2019-12-23

New

  • Added a simple naive implementation of the credits system. The credits will be used to get access to some unique features, like changing profile appearance or highlighting forum posts. Currently it allows to only lift a forum topic to the top of the list for 24 hours. New features will be added gradually. The credits will be awarded as a gift for a donation or for getting on-site achievements (not implemented yet), most likely somehow related to the medals system but it hasn't been decided yet.
