This forum is a place for people to discuss Leagify and the things vaguely related to Leagify. Because this forum is based on Discourse, you get a lot of cool features to do this.

Below are a couple of "hidden features" I have discovered over the last

someone to get their attention and make sure they see your post. They
will get a notification. Type @ and start typing their name or username

it. You can also mention a group in the same way and it will
automagically mention everyone in the group.
Use "emoji" smileys to embellish your posts
To trigger emoji autocomplete, start typing a
: colon then some
characters. Hundreds of emoji are available.
