Note to self: the header is wrong and the menu is not clickable on mobile because the logo is above it. Also, on mobile, the white space left and right of the photo should be removed.

I like the look very much! I would like a place to share scenarios with each other. Or maybe I couldn't find it...

Anyway, thanks for making the game! I love it!

Maybe there should just be a forum thread for this purpose.

For now you can make a forum thread. We're going to make a Steam-workshop-like-thing in the future where you will be able to share and find scenarios and other stuff :)

On my phone the "OpenRCT2 Forums" text wraps to bellow the header, making everything behind it not clickable. To go to unread content I'll have to first open the Activity menu and navigate it.

I feel like somewhere on the forums (probably in the account settings page) there should be something that tells users which at which numbers of posts they rank up at. For example, apprentice at 10 posts, entrepreneur at 100 posts, etc. (at least that's how I remember it being)

Don't show the numbers needed to level up, we don't want people spamming these forums just for an extra dot under their name.

Well, the dots do serve a purpose in my opinion. If you're asking a question and get several answers, the dots might be an indication if the answer is from a regular player or a newbie (and thus might be wrong). Thoughts?

Well, that's one way of looking at it. Here's how I think about this: one might only be posting things in the Small Talk and Offtopic section or the Ideas section and still make about 100 posts. That would probably make them an Entrepreneur, and if other people like the ideas they post, or the things they post in Small Talk, they will garner enough rep to be considered an experienced member of the community. Even making jokes can put you up pretty high. If a newbie were to ask them a question, the answer might not be right at all. :P

This also puts into perspective the huge gap between Apprentice and Entrepreneur, and the small gaps after that.

But then again, something is better than nothing...

I'd say the karma/points system would be better for this. The amount of posts does not say much about how experienced someone is. Indeed, as ziscor mentioned, someone can be active in the fun subforum, and not answer questions. Having the points more as a "good answer" system (like StackOverflow), and possible only display in it the problems and bugs section.

I agree. The rep system should only be there in the Problems and Bugs section, as in the ability to give rep, or receive rep. As for if the rep counter is only shown in said sub-forum, I'm indifferent to that change.  Shouldn't make much difference, really. 

There's a lot of ways the rep system is unreliable other than someone simply posting fun stuff that like-minded people find rep-worthy.

An example: Person A had a quarrel with Persons B and C, and when they decided to debate on this in a thread, B and C would keep giving rep to each other's post to let them know they support their stance. Person A's actions will eventually get B and C a good reputation when all they did was debate with A on something.

I sometimes want to give a rep point for good OpenRCT2 creations as well, but I agree it should be disabled on the off topic boards.
