Tap once on the profile picture and it will display their card (think of it like a business card - its a flashy picture and core info).
Tap twice and it will take you to their profile with more information.

Wow thats a very interesting image - quite a powerful composition.


#9

Hold up, these are all the profile backgrounds. User card backgrounds are different and I don’t know what they do.

Tap once on my profile pic in this thread and you will see my user card.

The idea is if you find something I write intriguing you can take a quick glance at “who I am”. And then you can click again to go into my profile.

Oh ok, yep, got it. ////////////

Its basically a replacement for signatures - Discourse basically has tried to make a contentcentric forum - they did research on forums and found that only 22% of the page on average was actually content - most of it was signatures etc.

Now have a 10/10 user pic thing. Absolutely superb.

Everyone’s gonna have a meme background now

Define everyone. I doubt the mods or the respectable people of the forums will have meme backgrounds.

Everyone who is not a mod better have at least one meme in their background
