There are 2 things that I feel should possibly be implemented. I apologize in advance if either of these have already been suggested.

1. An award system. This is pretty self explanatory, however, I personally love this feature on other forums. This allows people to work for something. Yes, we already have the level system, which is kind of relevant, but not very entertaining. Plus, this could go hand-in-hand with a previous suggestion of weekly/monthly competitions, etc. At the bare minimum, there could be basic awards like "Kissass", "Donator", "Veteran", etc. You could more than likely get them all custom made for pretty cheap, as the resolution of them are what, like 10x10?

2. Custom group userbars. User groups are obviously a pretty big part of the forum, however, it's rather obvious that currently all people use them for is the title and username color. Until the forum gets bigger, and the groups actually become content and activity based, I feel like custom userbars could be pretty neat. It could also be an incentive towards leveling up. You could unlock the feature by getting a certain forum level, getting a certain amount of group members, having a certain amount of posts in your group's section or something along those lines. Hell, it could be a feature for those who've donated (Although, I know that your goal is to keep everything free on the forum, which I respect immensely.).

So yeah. I know that these have most likely been suggested or considered, however, I thought it'd be worth the mention regardless.

Peace.

EDIT: Upon further research, my suspicions were proven accurate. Both of these have either been implemented and removed, or suggested.
I kinda prejaculated while suggesting these, so, I guess I probably should have checked beforehand.
Welp, still going to throw it out there that they should be added. My bad.

Last I checked, the awards plugin was installed on Lewd, and if I remember correctly, Senpai wanted to do something with it. Don't quote me on that, it's been a while.

As far as custom userbars go, it's been discussed before in the Slack chat, and the answer is pretty unkown (at least to me), however I can say with certainty that the userbars will remain CSS, if you were hoping for images or of the sort. Besides, takes a load off of the server.

Yeah I mentioned Custom UserBar for groups too here
https://lewd.sx/t/few-suggestions

I also mentioned challenge system for giving awards to the winners, but adding other awards for other purposes also would be awesome too

Actually, speaking of custom groups, I always wondered why the WAIFU group name sparkles.

I think an award system would be good as well as custom userbars. Userbars could be implemented with a group tier or level. The group level/tier would be determined on how many posts are in your sub-forum as well as how many members are in your group. But the award system, well, what awards would you implement? I don't think there would be that many for a forum like this...

Edit: Also OP, you're hella close to my group color. >.>

Awards will probably be added later down the line to encourage posting.

There are only so many shades of cyan, cyan is best color.

Awards will likely come.

Custom userbars likely wont, instead I will either be opting for different userbar settings or no userbars at all.
