    Ok, there is plenty to add here so it will take a little time, but loving the possibilities so far:).

    Here are the needs we are looking at addressing so far:

    1. Games. Xenforo does not have many. Found at least one that could be great.
    2. Plugins that use credits in a fun way:).
    3. Something for tournaments.
    4. A video directory or gallery.

    Any more we should be looking out for?

    All of the above lol. We have an add-on for it. It is one we will be testing soon to see if it works.

    Just. Make it better than it was on the last forum(on last forum, social groups were independent of forum).

    We will see. Going to start adding plugins this weekend:). We may try around 30 or so, but each will be tested to see if they work before staying.

    There are announcements builtin to xenforo most of the plugins are meant to add features and general usefulness. [HASH/TAG]test[/HASHTAG]

    The above post works like this. Xenforo 1.5 allowed users to implement tags into forums and now I have set it up with the addition of an addon to allow hashtags to be used for social reasons. This makes it easier to reference specific groups of content such as LeagueOfLegends and they will be auto linked to the page with that tag. Now you will be able to cross reference large sections of content on the site through the use of hashtags.

    Then they aren't enabled or permissions aren't set? In vB announcements were a banner that you can place at the top of the forum or specific forums.

    XenForo lacks a direct analogue to vBulletin's announcements system, what they have is notices https://xenforo.com/help/notices/
    As it stands it is locked away in the admin cp where none of the people who make use of something like that (myself, Aaddron, specific forum moderators) can access it.

    Ok, Social Groups and the RPG Dice plugin have both been installed now:). These look like keepers so far.
