How to upgrade from a trial to paid account?
I created the "free trial version" of my forum, but now can't seem to find any place to upgrade to a paid account. @KajMagnus could you add some info on how to upgrade to a paid account? Thanks :)

Add a link to text editor commands
It would be super helpful for new users to have a shortcut to all the possible formatting options the forum supports. It could be added in the area next to the other editor options: I think it doesn't say anywhere that the forum is using Markdown. I ...
Request to fix the email problem
Hi @KajMagnus As you know, lots of users end up responding to forum emails because they believe their response will end up with us. You've been manually forwarding this to us. As our user base grows, that's unsustainable for you - and for us. Those f...
