Reactions which are these:

  • Haha = Positive Rep – For when you find the post funny

  • Sad = Negative Rep – When a thread makes you sad because you don’t like it
  • Up Arrow = Positive Rep – When you like a thread
  • Down Arrow = Negative Rep – when you dislike a thread



Then we have Clubs, this is probably a huge one, you can create your own group and have your own personal forum, you can set it to open or private and invite members to join it, it can be about anything, you can create your club here or join ones already made:


We are using the default theme at the moment, as all themes need to be updated in order to run on 4.2, i do not know when the final release will happen, but you won’t be able to change to your usual theme until then.

  • Grid Layout – I decided to change the forum to this type of layout as it is different and i personally think it looks better than the generic layout that every other forum has out there.
  • Discord – The forum is connected to Discord, this means that when a news article is posted on the forum, you will be notified on Discord.
  • RSS – I have added two RSS feeds to the forum, one will give you all the PlayStation related forum posts and the other Nintendo related forum posts:
