I like this idea. I think it'd be cool to actually have like a twitch system where everyone can pick out a different color for their texts and everyone sees it in said color. (ofc the colors would have to be tested to make sure that players can read them easily still)
Could also be nice to get rid of the character count. Like if compressed, I probably only have 500 posts instead of 1600. Or have a "show more/less" system so it's not just a wall of text from one person going all the way down... and by one person, I mean myself.
I think the forums need some reworking in general.
