A brand new look for KDE Community forums

Today, a major upgrade of the KDE Community Forums took place. The change brings quite a number of changes to the forums themselves, and it’s a further step towards providing a better experience for KDE users (and developers too!).

The new forums, powered by phpBB, have a whole new theme, heavily inspired by KDE 4.3’s “Air” Plasma theme:

Not only the looks have improved, however. A number of features have been added:

  • The ability of tagging a specific thread;
  • A new, improved reputation system;
  • A friends connection system where you can mark other users as friends and interact more easily with them;

The popular section “KDE Brainstorm” has also received improvements, such as the ability of having a neutral vote, an improved voting pad, and a brand new look to match the one of the forums.

As a final note, we would like to thank phpBB developers cs278, naderman and NeoThermic for their kind assistance and great support during the migration process. Thanks a lot!

Take a tour around the new KDE Community Forums, and let us know what you think!
