Sir Luc,

I too think something like 5 or 6 lines and 12 to 14 point text size (along with the 600 character limit) would be fine.

Five lines and 12 point sounds good to me.

Thank you for your feedback. The new settings are:
  • Font size 12
  • Up to 5 lines
  • 500 characters limit
  • Up to 2 pictures
  • Up to 100px height for each picture
By the way, thank you all for your kind words. They mean a lot to me in terms of being enthusiastic and committed to this job, although they are no good for my ego. (Especially Eðo. I did nothing to deserve a knighthood.)

If I can get the UrN despite being branded the Kingdom of Talossa's Public Enemy #1 for the first 15 years of my involvement, anyone can, lol

Anyway, back on topic. I get a notification when I'm Mentioned; can I also get one for Likes to my posts, as Oldwitt did?
Oh, I see there already is one, under my avatar - but since you don't see avatars on Latest 59, I don't see that regularly. Can it go in the top menu, near where Mentions is?

Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Talossa. Ask me anything.

There already is a link for likes you receive, but it's hidden - it's supposed to be below "New Posts + Replies" on the header but it's not rendered because the header bar is fixed to 100px height (edit: 60px actually). I've been mulling on a way to move that thing in a clean/pleasant way and I'll try something now.

As per *notifications* specifically, I really want to have mention-style notifications for when you are quoted and liked as well. That is not as straightforward though, but it will definitely go on the feature request list.

When's the last time anyone was knighted for exceptional acts, long service, anything? The last knight-related thing I recall was a revocation.

I think it was probably my knighthood, five years ago.  They are fairly rare.  Prior to that it was the Reunision knighthoods of Litz and Miestra, and prior to that it was Mick's knighthood for Chancery work for his four years of work.  MPF probably would have gotten one for Chancery stuff if he hadn't begun publicly demanding one as his due (only speculating, but that's my guess).

Big anniversary at the end of this month -- I wouldn't be surprised if there were some laurels in the offing, now that we mention it.

That would be nice. Personally, I'd love to see Glüc receive some sort of nod.

Glüc's done great work, but I'd like to see his predecessor, the longest-ever serving SoS and the creator of our Database system, get something too

Shoutbox update: unfortunately all mods I found were either outdated, paid or have off-site login. For example, there's a nice shoutbox (SMFPacks Shoutbox Pro if you want to look it up) which costs 19$ one-off. Embedding Chatzy also requires a subscription though, which would be as much as 129$ per year (unsustainable).

As standard Chatzy doesn't require to buy Premium, for the time being I have added a redirect under the Chat Room board. We might need to do something custom if we don't want to pay for a shoutbox.

We could embed the Discord server, no?
