    Hey folks. Just some updates here of some new features we've added to the boards in order to hopefully help us grow this fledgling little community!

    Recent Posts Sidebar Widget
    If you're browsing the board now, you'll find a recent posts widget in the sidebar detailing the latest posts on the board - a handy little thing for seeing what's going on. These currently display the thread name, the time, and the avatar of who replied, but we might tweak this as time goes on.

    Additional Sign-Up and Log-in Options
    We've added the ability for new users to sign up with their Facebook, Google and Twitter IDs. These are authenticated with those companies, so all you need to do is hit that button and log in with your detail from those sites. If you're new, you simply sign up that way.

    If you're a current member and you want to link/connect to accounts from other websites so you can sign in via them, head to your Account Settings by hitting your name in the header. In there, find the "External Accounts" link in the sidebar. From there you can link your Mognet ID to Facebook/Twitter IDs. There'll be trophies in this for you, too.

    More Trophy Options, and an EXP bar
    I've added a bunch of new features behind-the-scenes to allow us to reward trophies more easily and effectively and also, more importantly, allow us to set automated goals for you guys to hit in order to get trophies.

    Trophies, if you don't know, are how you change your user title. The trophies you get are each worth points - think Xbox achievements - and the number of points you have determines your level. For instance, to be a SOLDIER, 2nd Class, you need somewhere in the region of 100 points. As we add more trophies, more high-level titles will become available. All the titles are, of course, based off characters, organizations and ranks from FF. There will be opportunities where admins will give people custom tags too.

    In addition to new ways behind-the-scenes that'll see a slew of new trophies added over the coming weeks, I've also added a system where you can see, in the sidebar, how far you are to your next trophy. Once you hit 100%, ding, level up.

    I'm working on a system to actually better display the trophies you can aim for and the user titles that you can unlock - so bear with me on that.

    More to come! So stick with us. Suggestions welcome in this here thread, but please keep posting, tell your friends, etcetera. :D

    Hey folks. I've added a bunch of new trophies today. Many of these are specific to making posts in specific Mognet forums. They are:
    • [​IMG] The Four Crystals - You made your first four posts in Mognet's Final Fantasy discussion forums.
    • [​IMG] The First Fifteen - You've posted fifteen discussions in Mognet's Final Fantasy forums - matching the number of FF titles as this trophy was created!
    • [​IMG] Level Cap - You posted 99 times in the Final Fantasy forum - hitting that level cap!
    • [​IMG] Junctioned - You posted 250 times in Mognet's Final Fantasy discussion forums!
    • [​IMG] Coin of Fate - You've posted 500 times in Mognet's Final Fantasy forums. Your fated Mognet addition continues...
    • [​IMG] The Midnight Channel - You've posted 12 times in the RPG Discussion Forums. Say, is it foggy out...?
    • [​IMG] Dragonborn - You posted 100 times in the RPG forums - a feat equal to slaying Dragons. So says us.
    • [​IMG] Favorite forum on the Citadel - You've posted 250 times in Mognet's RPG sub-sections.
    • [​IMG] To the Middle Ages! - You've posted 600 times in Mognet's RPG forums - matching the year from which the world's greatest amphibious knight hails!
    • [​IMG] I need a weapon. - You've posted in the General Gaming forums 117 times.
    • [​IMG] Will They, Won't They? - You took part in the discussion and competition asking if Final Fantasy XV would appear at E3 2014. Did you get it right?
    More trophies to come. :) Suggestions welcome.

    New Changes 29/05
    • I've added a link to the Trophies page to the very top of the site, so you can access the trophy listing as easily as your own account.
    • I've added a trophy for your first three posts, and balanced some of the other trophies a result. The trophy for getting your first Like has been upped by 2 points to 5. The new trophy for posting three times is worth 3 points.
    [​IMG] The Power of Three - You posted your first three Mognet Central messages - you're on a roll! This also unlocks the ability to post links.

    There is a reason behind this - I'm now disabling the ability to post links for those with under three posts. It's not an anti-competitive thing, but rather an anti spam-bot thing - links won't be allowed in posts, user profiles or signatures until you hit three posts and have been registered for three days. At that point, that ability will unlock, and the trophy comes with that ability. Sorry for any inconvenience caused. I've amended the rules to note this fact, too.​
    • Fixed an error that was causing "The First Fifteen" trophy to not unlock correctly.

    New for June 8th 2014:
    Given the forum is growing a bit, and a lot of our staff, including myself, are on the ground at Los Angeles, I've promoted one of our earliest and regular users, @Azuardo, to Moderator. Thanks to him for accepting and being willing to help us out.

    We'll be consistently looking at mods as the forum grows, to ensure we're never overrun and all that. :) There'll be more to come.

    I don't wish to clutter up an information thread, but ahh, what the heck.

    Congrats, @Azuardo. =)

    Well, thank you! I'll likely just be clearing out the spammers more than anything, whilst the the others are all busy. Happy to lend a helping hand!

    Hey folks! Just two small updates today.

    You may have noticed an EXP bar (very FF like!) for trophies on the front page of the boards. This basically tracks your progress to hitting the next user level, which unlocks the text underneath your name.

    Previously, the text there was based solely on that. However, we are now allowing you to choose. What this means is as you gain trophy levels you can unlock new levels of user title. Rather than be trapped on the one for the latest level you unlocked, you can basically pick from any of the ones you're eligible for! You can do this via the User Preferences page in the User CP.

    I also fixed a bug that stopped some trophies from popping. :)
