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.
