Valentine's Day Sale: Everything 20-30% (25%) off

Forum Thread

Some of you must be feeling quite lonely,

but that should end now!

Introducing the Valentine's Day Sale, literally every item you can buy in our shop is ~25 percent off today. (could also be 20 or 30 percent, but let's take 25 for a smooth number)-- obviously this lasts until today my time, so let's say ~10 hours of fortune and lovely sale will be ahead after this announcement.

Yeah, every single item, now go find that true love in our shop since we know you love some of our items so much as you love your french girls, tender and sweet with a nice accent.

A few forum changes

Hey everyone,

In order to further attempt to spruce up forum activity, I've added a new category, called Super Speedy Threads[forum.redsun.tf]. Guests can view the content of threads here, in order to encourage posting.

The new section is for off-topic posts that still carry a train of discussion (basically, threads not about Red Sun that also aren't shitposts.) while not being spammy shitposts.

As for Fast Chat, it's been renamed to "Shitposting Wasteland" in order to better reflect the content within that subforum.

As per usual, feedback appreciated yadda yadda yadda you are all fagettolinis

Discord integration is up


(You still need a linked steam account on registering. Don't get any funny ideas.)

Introducing: the revamped forums

As of this announcement, I've re-opened the forums. Take a pop in and see what's new.

• Coloured usernames for donators
Pretty much what it says on the tin. Donators can pick from a list of pre-defined colours (that don't cause insane eyerape) to wave their e-penises (or e-penii, if you think about it) about even more.

• Animated avatars for all users
Since the major upgrade deprecated some addons which controlled permissions for certain aspects of the site, I just decided "eh, fuck it. let 'em all have animated avatars". Please note that it can take a while for the CDN to process and display your updated avatar if you decide to change it.

• Discord login integration
The option is there on our back-end controls, but until we get some ends tied up, we'll be starting to roll out the option to associate your Discord account to login to the forums. Neat.

• Self-serve username change
Because we all regret picking a shit username and having to DM someone to change it. Within your user controls,[forum.redsun.tf] you will be able to change your username (subject to cooldown). Additionally, on your user profile, your username change history will be visible. (You can change visibility of this within your privacy settings,[forum.redsun.tf] too. No one will know that awful nickname.)

There's some other stuff that I should probably mention, but it'd be too tiring to type up something remotely funny.
Now go visit the damn forums.

Shitpost away at https://forum.redsun.tf/
