XenForo2 has some nice upgrades for us that will make things a little easier, and a little more fun.

Such as GIPHY integration!! If you didn't get a chance to play with it, check it out (its in the bar where it says GIF while creating a new post).
Can't remember a code for spoilers, or strike throughs? Check out the first set of 3 dots.
Want to insert a line or table? Check out the secon set of 3 dots!
Yes, you have the ability to minimize whole sections of the boards (triangle on the far right side of the section title), but we would hate for you to miss out on all the different areas of the forums!

We now have 2 types of spoilers!!! The regular spoiler to hide an entire line with a button.. or you can hide only part of a line with inline spoilers which makes it super blurry/fuzzy (tags of spoiler for the first, or ispoiler for the second)

Here's some other information that you may find handy!

Yeah, its a tactic used in Mafia to get a condensed view of who has posted what. It used to be under "thread tools" and then "see replies" and you could filter it by member. I don't play mafia anymore but I do use the tool.

There was a plugin called Who Replied that was for XF1. It was not compatible post upgrade by default. We will need to see if there is an updated version or a new plugin that will officer similar features.

I miss the navigation tree that used to be in the upper right hand corner. Is there a way to easily jump from forum to forum without going up to the top left and clicking the most general category til you get to the specific forum you want?
