Hello Coders!

I come bearing new gifts!


I hope you are all having a wonderful day today, and learning lots! Firstly, just want to apologize for my absence lately. My work schedule is getting busier and working tires me out but that's no excuse for me abandoning my fellow coders. So I'm going to push myself much more to try and improve your experience at Code Forum. And with that, I'm hoping I'll be able to do this by using the community to help myself better to improve my skills in hopes that it may encourage you guys to do the same!

With improving your experience at CF, I've made a couple of changes that I believe will help Code Forum stand out. I have changed one of our forum names from introductions to "Hello World"; as I felt like it would be unique on a coding forum.

Also, we now have new awardable badges! I have recently come across a new add-on on XenForo by CMTV that would give me the ability to award badges to individuals; particularly ones who contribute to our community with tutoring other members and or have a great deal of experience in particular languages. You can view the current badge's here: https://codeforum.org/help/badges/ and think this could work as a solution for this post: https://codeforum.org/threads/user-ranks.375/.

You can now find that the smilies bar is located at the bottom of the text editor to make it much easier to insert smiles into your threads. :)

Once again, I do apologize for the lack of activity. I will be going through the hub and making sure there are no missed introductions, suggestions or help questions to ensure that you are all being heard. I have been working on a new article called 'Coding VS Programming' which I'm explaining the difference's between them, and think many of us will find useful.

Thank you for reading! And Happy Coding! :coffee::alien:

[Proceeds to show a random Santa Gif, even though it's September.]
[Seems legit.]

Good Coder Mode, Activate.

Overall, small changes but at least it's nice to have changes every once in a while.

Oh yeah. For next September, maybe include a Gif from the Song: "September" by Earth, Wind and Fire. It will fit in more because, well. It's September, @Malcolm.

bruh, you never heard of @Dan-Kode before? He's a Programmer who has a decent amount of Experience with HTML and CSS. And has a bit of Experience with C and Java. But yet, he hates Python.

He's also a legendary CF Programmer and he loves Reddit so you'll find him there a lot.

I've noticed a lack of Badges for a few other Languages.

Here they are:
  • C
  • C++
  • Lua
Those were really the only ones I noticed that were missing.

As for other Badges for things like, Software. I haven't really noticed any missing ones.

I can't wait to see what other Badges will be made available.

The reason C,C++ and Lua haven't been added is due to Font-Awesome not having those icons. But I'm working on a fix for that.
