Awarded medals we'd like to have but the medals system add-on on the older version of XenForo (our install was a good 4-5 years out of date at the time of this move) is incompatible with this version of our forum software and thus we're waiting to see if a better system comes out. Don't worry though, that one's on our list.

We've been looking in to a Discord on and off for some time now but from a current perspective we would lack the appropriate number of people to monitor and actively keep every single section moderated 24/7. We've had things like rules drafted out and all that stuff, but the implementation would be a large question mark and thus as of this point I can't confirm whether or not it's likely to happen, perhaps something for us to review once we've been able to build the staff team to a comfortable level (in size, experience, and even in terms of communication to other community groups, given we were shook quite a significant amount over the summer).

Good ideas though, if you do have any more ideas and/or assistance on what we have, feel free to reply or contact a member of our staff.
I would be willing to be a discord moderator and do stuff like that

I feel a huge issue right now, as stated by some members of the community, is activity and encouraging players to register.

I would like to see some events done that are specifically for the forums and don't require members to turn on a console to participate. I've had quite a few ideas in mind that I would love to one day see implemented, as I see we can only benefit from it as a community.

With that said, maybe get more than just a "moderation" team for the forums and an events team too? People that can brainstorm on how to keep people logging on while also expressing their creativity.

I know this is extremely brief but I felt it wouldn't be appropriate to be rambling on about what we can do if the general idea itself could potentially be shot down.

-You currently have 6 strictly moderation staff members (this isn't including the extreme amount of league staff members who also have moderator powers on parts of forum and discords).
-You have 1,767 members registered on this boards.

If we take the worst ratio saying you only have those 6 as moderators and every single person on this board joins the discord, you have a 1 moderator to 294.5 users.

Which at first glance people are like "yeah that is totally way out of line", when the reality is thats actually pretty accurate for most discords, extremely large discord communities (10,000+ member discords) actually will typically operate at 1 moderator to anywhere from 500-1,000 users ratio, which is significantly higher than your ratio, some more middle sized ones can get quite low and be like 1 moderator to 200 users which still isn't completely out of the realm you guys are at.

Once again that is taking your worst ratio numbers and assuming you guys don't have more discord moderators / have moderators for specific sections and assuming everyone registered joined the discord.

You can also deduce that it wouldn't be even remotely that active due to the average post per member count being 5.85 which honestly probably includes some where between 30-40% just being a table + some "GGs" after it. Also not including the registration section which contributes a significant portion of post count.
