Some of you may have noticed already that some things were changed around the forums, some of you may have noticed nothing lol.
Anywho, we are changing a few things and working on a few things to make this place even more fun than it already is.
When we updated the v-bulletin software, it actually put in a new feature with Social Groups and Friends.
If you click on your USERCP and look under the network section on the left side. You will see a section for Contacts & Friends and Social Groups, as well as other things (you can now upload some photos here for easier access). To add a friend
, simply click on Contacts & Friends and type in the user's name in the "Add a Member to Your List... " section.
You will also notice that you can leave comments on user's profiles
. It is almost MySpace/Facebook like...
I already started a few social groups (Video Gamers, PRIDE FC Fans, Striker's Club, and Grappler's Club) to get things started. Here is a link to the Social Groups: MMA News Forums - Social Groups
Have fun with the social groups
. If you want to make one for Pro wrestling fans, NFL Fans, Pushing Daisies (TV Show) Fans, Art Buffs, Metal Heads United, etc.... go ahead. If a group is made that clear shouldn't be there, it will be deleted and any proper courses of action will take place (i.e. if you do something really stupid, you are going to get banned). If you have any questions, just send me, or one of the other mods/admins a PM, or post it in here
. You can click on my name (to see my profile) which will show you my friends list and what social groups I joined.
As of right now, we are having a little trouble setting up the notification portion for when you receive a Social Group invite or a friend request, so you will have to go into those features and scroll down to see if you have requests manually for now.
Have fun with the new stuff. There is more on the way.
And remember, forum rules still apply with all of that stuff.
