Avatars collected around the site can be used on the forum to represent the residents when posting.
Users are allowed to modify the appearance of their posts using HTML, with effects such as Bolding and Italics. Scripts, forms, inputs and buttons are not allowed.

Users can rate other users' messages by attaching Stars to their posts. Stars are a type of untradeable currency that can be bought from the Bank, and cost 10 money each. There is no limit to how many Stars a single post can hold.
When a Resident's forum post has been Starred, the Resident will get an anonymous notification about it.
Users can view a list of own Stars given and received, and click on a post ID to quickly jump to the Starred post in the selected thread. This makes finding "favourited" information easier.
