    (Not the server, but the forums)

    Hello. After the forum's update to XF 1.5 a while ago,
    we all enjoyed the new update, but the forums is getting bland, boring, yuck.

    XenForo 2.0 is currently in beta, and brings a big change to styles, support for emojis, and many more.

    J&H Forums should update to 2.0 when it releases, meaning not today, but when it comes out.

    Here's a list of big features added in 2.0:
    - Emoji support (not just the default XF smilies)
    - Dynamic avatars based on the first letter of your username (kind of like youtube's)
    - Enhanced post-editing system (instead of bringing up an overlay, it replaces the post area)
    - You can fill out your own gender / occupation (I believe you can, in the case of people w/a different gender identity)
    - Higher quality avatars supported on faster devices (low res for slower devices)

    Here's some pictures:

    BEFORE AGREE OR DISAGREE.

    Does it reset our likes and messages?

    No, this is just an update to the forum software. It doesn't affect any posts/likes. Everything stays the same, but just with new features & different layouts.

    Agreed.
    I think it would be nice to see change in the forums. :)

    This would be cool, but I think your proposal of updating as soon as it is released could pose a small problem. XF 2.0 is a huge update, and it takes time for addons & styles to be updated. Some of them *could* be updated straight away, I have no idea what addons the forums use, but I can make some guesses, some addons may never be updated, and this also could cause a problem with finding replacements if they are not compatible. Otherwise it is a good idea, and it wouldn't hurt for the forums to be constantly updated.
