The forums are pretty well organized and I love the majority of features. A few things I would suggest changing or adding, but I'll post those in the forum suggestion topic.

I likesies the new logins.

 

For people who don't know (like myself, although I don't really want to), how would you go about getting your channel on the Streaming Widget?

it's not exactly instant updating, sometimes it could take a few hours of being online, or if your always online, you could have to log off and log back in to steam for it to enable.

Forum Skin Customisation

 

Almost forgot about this one but it affects your every interaction with the forums, should give it a few lines at least.

 

First we have the theme customiser which offers the following features:

 

  • Choice of colour accents for the forums
  • Transparent textures which are basically backgrounds but affected by the colour you choose above
  • Custom pre-made backgrounds
  • The ability to actually upload and use YOUR OWN background of choice

 

Too access it just click the spanner/screw driver symbol on the bottom right hand corner of the screen to reveal the customisation panel like below.

 

Theme customiser.png

 

If you cast your gaze across to the the left-hand side in the middle you can click the little spaceship icon you can reveal another neat option. This one switches between "Normal" and "Performance" mode for browsing the forums. Performance mode strips away a lot of features and should allow faster browsing, especially on slower machines.

That's it for the moment, new features are on the way so check back regularly to stay updated.

 

Just added a new feature which isn't new at all but should be covered anyway as it can change you browsing experience significantly.

 

Plus if you haven't already done so BaByShaQ, you can jack the purple all the way up to the MAX!

System Specs

 

One for all you you system builders out there to show off your OP machines is the "System Specs" that can be proudly displayed on your posts as you can see below:

You can update your specs by going to where you edit your profile and scrolling to the bottom which should reveal the area to enter your info:

@Mention

 

A new feature just added is the ability to mention people in forum posts, when you do this they will receive notification on the forums and by email. If you would like to turn off these notifications just edit your profile or click the following link  Notification Options

 

@mention.png

 

To mention someone in a post either click the @mention button under their name as indicated in the picture above or type their user-name after the @ symbol like below:

 

@next_generation

 

 

Here's another one courtesy of JayRad11's suggested idea in the "Deadly Centre for Creativity" here http://www.deadlygam...ons-in-threads/

 

If you have any ideas you think may benefit the clan feel free to submit them in that section.
