I don't deal with any of the back-end stuff so I can only go off what I've been told, I'm sure if it was achievable it'd have been implemented as it's what we wanted to do originally to make things as integrated and simple as possible.

Just a small idea:

Having pinned posts. For example; the question and answer sheet that has been posted in the Keedlestone thread by @BusSimAddict, and I'm sure that not many people will see it. You should make it that only forum moderators + can pin posts. Just a little idea. :)

Can you not get the plugins or are they just expensive?
The forum board software we use currently has no support for handling purchases and no plugin exists, so a plugin would have to be written to handle it for it to be possible. None of us have the time to do something like that. :(

Just a small idea: Having pinned posts.
We'd love that feature too. Unfortunately it's again not supported by the forum board software and the only plugin available to add the feature is abandoned and won't work. It's been suggested to the Xenforo devs, but deemed to have too little interest to be worth implementing... :(

Have you guys ever thought about a mobile app? Just out of curiosity wanted to ask.

Not really necessary as the site is built specifically to be mobile friendly and is based on a responsive design

Today we've introduced the ability to further customise your member profile with profile covers:

To add a cover image to your own profile, simply head to your profile and head over to 'Modify user cover image', as shown:

We're still currently testing out this new feature, so if you find any issues please open a bug report here. We're aware of some issues with repositioning covers currently, and are working towards a fix.

Can you do this on mobile and select pics as well or only on the computer?

Just a little idea based on what i've experienced.
I think FF should force everyone that gave - rep reactions to each comment / thread to explain why it deserves - rep, as i've seen people abusing the -rep reactions and giving nonsense reactions that doesn't make sense to some of the comments / threads.
This can avoid trolls trying to destroy a member's reputation, and it can help members to know what's good or bad about the comment/thread so they can futher discuss about it.

Something I would like to see is more categories under Repaints in the Downloads area. There are 350 different repaints there for somewhere in the region of 20 different types of buses. Anything which can be done to filter down the type of buses is a bonus in my opinion. Even if you just do London Citybus 400, ALX400R, ALX400 London. You would be taking around 200 files out of the mix. That way, when looking for certain bus types (for example the Volvo 7900), you can find them easier.

I would use the search feature but unless you go through Advanced, it shows far too many items and even going through advanced, it doesn't show all the results so more categories would help narrow it down quickly and easily for the users.

@SubtleGTA & @JosieJump, just wanted to let you know that we haven't just simply ignored the suggestions above, they are currently being considered within the staff team. Cheers :)

Just had a thought then. Maybe if you changed it so that when making a reaction you only have to press the smilie face once instead of holding it down on phones? Would make it easier.
