Greetings Hydra Members!

I am very excited for our upgrade from Xenforo version 2.0 to 2.1. XF 2.1 brings lots of neat features for both the back-end of our Forum and front-end with one of the most notable features being post reactions. This can be accessed by hovering over the "like" button - now you should see an assortment of reactions such as angry, laughing, etc. I hope you enjoy these news updates as much as I will!
