New Features Of Forum

Going to list some of the new features here:

1. Points - every time you start a new thread in any forum other than Contests you get 1 point, a reply to any post in the forums other than contests you get .5 pts... Everyone starts with 50points. Starting in September if you play in any contests you will lose points for playing. If you want to play again the following month you will need points so you have to post to earn them. We will also be adding on additional prizes for points in the future.

2. Following Users - By Default everyone is following three users - Promotions, Contests and Bangthebook. When they post you will be notified. We will only post with these users to promote things like upcoming contests, promos etc..
---Further you can follow anyone on the site and receive notifications when they post etc.. There are a few settings right now like daily, instant etc.. you can find them in "My Profile" at the bottom under "My Notification Settings"

3. My Content Tab - Here you can see
# Wall - where you can see messages people have posted to you
# Posted Info - Posts you made
# Following - who you are following
# Replies - Posts you replied to
# Followers - Whos following you
# Info - These are the details from your My Profile you are sharing

4. Followers Tab - Just like the Followers tab in My Content

Hot Topics/Top 10 Posts/Top 10 Followed - Kind of speak for themselves basically you can see whats going on and whats hot at the moment etc..

I hope everyone is finding the site exciting and easy to use. Should you have any problems or need avatar help please post it here.

They will be adding many new features in the near future but we'd love to hear your suggestions or comments.

Thanks everyone for making this a smooth transition. While I have tried to help with several minor bumps in the roads that came to me via PM's from the old location or email I think over all it's been a huge success!

I'm starting to like the new interface now when I've got the hang of most of the features.

I know we are still working on things but above you listed it was fixed to where YouTube videos could be posted. I am sure it's something simple but several of us have tried and have not been able to post them. Is there still a bug or can you tell us the steps to post a video please?

    ALSO... If any of you have a problem with the advanced mode - having to move the highlighted area every time you changed the size, color, etc. if you hold the shift key down the entire area says highlighted - hope that made sense - it did to me LOL

So today we had another update!

1. Back button on browser and at bottom of page will bring you back to where you were when you came into the post.. Shortly we will add a feature where you can go to next thread and previous thread.

2. First edition of Wager Tools has been launched... You can see scores, odds, Team information etc..Next update will have the detailed matchups, trends, previews and some more stats. Please note this is only available to users who are logged in. Guests can not see this!

3. Stay logged in is set to a longer period. People were losing there credentials etc. if not active

4. ESPN videos now work

There were of course some others but these were the biggies. As always more to come!

I have a question - It's not an important item just something I would like you to consider. Is there a way to allow more new thread topics on a page? On the reply pages they go on as long as needed but on the home/Latest post/NF/etc only like 10 show up then you have to click on next page. On some days I miss half the latest posts because the bounce to the next pages faster than I can see them and since they don't show up read anymore I never know how far to go back.

This is probably just a "me thing" but just thought I'd mention it!

    I was also wondering that as well. I like it much better when all the post are on the same page. I could not find my posts a couple of days ago and then I discovered I had to hit next page to find them. I think some threads/posts will get lost that way.
