Time for some Forum improvements and changes! Fixed some css display issues with ranks, added a lot of badges and ways to earn them, integrated register with Microsoft, Twitter, Facebook, Google accounts, improved cookie filter and added player option to be able to delete their accounts. Some big changes to tutorials and guides, we now have a  dedicated category for Tutorials and Guides and everyone can post tutorials and help others. More details below:

 

  • Tutorials and Guides - we now have a dedicated main category and everyone can post guides and tutorials so others in need can use them. There are 2 special badges that will be rewarded to users that post guides and tutorials, it doesn't have to be a guide 100% made by you, if you found a good guide/tutorial you can post it for others to use. There will be a moderator required to approve the post.

  • Users can easily delete their Forum account now, but you can still email us to delete your data if you want to. You can find this option in Account Settings.

  • Faster page loading - Lazy loading for images and content, this will improve page loading a lot as content that is not displayed on the page will not be loaded until you scroll down.

 

  • Some Forum main categories got cleaned up and added special icons.

  • Fixed rank display, the last big Forum update broke this and the rank tag was deformed, now it's fixed

  • Added Achievements with special badges that will be rewarded to players on certain conditions, also this will reward players points that will help them level up their ranks. You can check your earned badges and rank progress on your account profile.

  • Implemented register/login via Microsoft, Google, Twitter and Facebook accounts. This allows you to register a Forum account using an existing account from the services mentioned for easy of use, existing accounts can also integrate on Account Settings.

  • Improved account security, existing accounts can login only via email (no longer via forum username) and administrators accounts will now have two form factor authentication enabled.

  • Improved cookies consent, a better cookie filter was installed and notification on first visit.

  • Because the license cost increased 3 times recently on all IPB components we will consider removing the commerce module and save some hundred dollars every 6 months, this is the reason the Forum donate button and monthly goal is now removed.

 

 

The community is everything, thanks for being part of it!
