Hey everyone!

Today we re-enabled (after being disabled for a little while, while a couple issues with it after the XF 2.x upgrade popped up) the RDF promotion questionnaires system (sorry, SD team, :lol: - a bunch of new work incoming).

You will be able to see it in the top right under your visitor panel on most pages:

Depending on your current user access level and other criteria, this widget will appear/not appear for you.

When filling out the questionnaire, please be as truthful and forthcoming as possible - your answers/responses will remain confidential and be available to only a select group of staff members. The more information you can provide us, the better we're able to gauge whether or not your promotion should be granted or not.

We will be adjusting the way we handle promotions soon (nothing substantial, mainly appearance and protocol changes) - I'm currently working on the RDF Spring Update (large thread outlining new/recent/upcoming changes to the forum) thread and will include the questionnaires system/some details regarding promotions in it as well, but figured I'd give everyone a heads up here in this thread so you know that this system is now back in working order!

I'll be leaving most of the details/updates for the spring update thread but we're extremely close to launching the new RDF themes (I've been merging in changes on my local dev server here at home for the past few days now) - which are significantly based off of XenForo's main theme, for continuity purposes going forward. Again, a light and dark version of the theme will be available at that time.

Feel free to ask any questions on stuff covered in this thread, or features/functions you'd like to see come to RDF, or anything else you may have on your mind regarding the forum - I'll address them here in this thread and make sure I cover them in the spring update coming soon as well!

Thanks!

What is a “Junior level member”? I don’t recall seeing that access level.

This box will only be visible while you are eligible for promotion consideration, and you have not already filled out a questionnaire. The moment you submit your questionnaire the box will disappear.
After taking the questionnaire, the box and questionnaire still remain. Just wanted to let you know in case this was unintentional.

Yep, thanks for the heads up - noticed that as well. I'm looking into if this is a bug or how the addon author intended it.

The GOT Banner was cool. Consider a custom banner that changes every couple of weeks to keep things interesting.
No really, no additional work on your part. It happens by magic..............
:mmmhmm:

You should do one of Bran just sitting in his wheelchair covered in snow and starring daggers.

Next one will be Bran being lifted up to a keep by crows like a ****ed up snow white....since well Winterfell doesn't appear to be handicap friendly place.
