I believe this is the same forum builder used in the warthunder forums. 

The warthunder forums have so many more features, links, little trinkets of recognition throughout it really makes it feel player orientated.

My suggestion is to just check out the links,  look at how they format their forum page with different types of "likes" to give more feedback, have "important messages" pinned to the main browse tab. Implement some sort of game activity counter linked to the game and to the forum. As it is done in the Warthunder forums, as seen in the 2nd link with the number "5272," indicates my number of games played, perhaps hours for the forum. 

Why? Its just nice eye candy, info on players, makes the forums feel a bit more player focused, easier to navigate, find important posts, etc.

Anyway I think this forum gets the job done, forums are supposed to be for discussing ideas and talking, not boasting stats/showcasing your in game character. If people want stuff like that they can always put it in their bio.

Forums should be post/idea/discussion oriented, not player oriented just my opinion.

I can never find jack on these forums because they are buried, the default notification system is horrid, and it all looks the same. Forums should be engaging and welcoming to participate in, in order to encourage a larger discourse of ideas from the whole playerbase.

We had the "react" feature for a few hours - but I dont think they liked everyone reacting with a laughing smiley to the comments they're not agreeing with lol
