Default Forum Upgrading - Weekend

Dear Animal Lovers,

To better serve our Pet Slaves and their Masters, we will be conducting an upgrade on the forum system. There will be many more cool features and enhancements - yes, it's gonna be Awesome!

So, there might be a slight downtime of an hour or so during this weekend. Don't worry, the forum wasn't abducted by aliens.

We'll keep you posted. Meanwhile, enjoy your stay and continue chatting!

Come, come, kak June, let's go on a mini jungle-trekking at FRIM, Kepong. Easy stuff, well, easier than Taman Negara or the jungle treks in Cameron Highlands. Anyone else wanna come along?

Haha.. awww, I feel so bad making you guys look for alternate activities during the weekend.

On second thoughts, I'll likely conduct the upgrade about midnight tonight. I've already done most of the preparations just now, so I believe I can limit the downtime to 15 mins or less if all goes well!

So, when the vampires wake up tonight, they'll be looking at a cool, enhanced forum!

Hi Guys,

The upgrade will begin at midnight sharp - when the clock strikes 12 and vampires start waking up!

Don't worry, it's gonna be real quick, so hang on there!

Thumbs up Re: Forum Upgrading Completed - New Features List!

The forum upgrade has been completed smoothly in 15 minutes! From a quick glance, everything looks the same, but... here are a list of cool new featuers now available!


Blogging
Yes, you can now blog away within the comfort of our forum! A fully integrated blog that you can showcase to your friends and write to your heart's content.


Thread Tagging
A new way to facilitate searching and grouping of threads, it is now possible for users to add tags to threads they post or read. Tags can be added when creating a new thread, or to an existing thread by any user (with appropriate permissions).

Any users who then click on these tags will not only find all thread that have the same tag as the one clicked, but will also contribute to the building of a search tag cloud, which gives users a quick guide as to what has been searched for recently and most frequently.


Reciprocal Friendships Between Users
As part of the new social networking system, users can now request that people on their buddy list confirm their friendship, after which time a person's list of confirmed friends will be viewable to other users.


Public Messaging
We now introduce the public messaging system, allowing users to communicate publicly via their profile pages.


User Picture Galleries
Users can now create albums and upload pictures to their account. The ability to view these albums and pictures can be limited by the user to just board staff and people on their buddy list if they want privacy.


User-Created Social Groups
To further social cohesion between users and to encourage people to make friends, vBulletin now includes a facility to allow users to create their own social/interest groups. These groups are enhanced by having their own public messaging system, and the ability to add pictures to the group from user albums.


New Member Profile Page
The member profile page has been completely redesigned from the ground up. The new page presents information in a far cleaner and more logical manner, while dividing up information into manageable chunks using a tabbed interface. Individual profile field categories can be displayed alone in blocks in the right column, in addition to appearing by default in the 'About Me' tab.


Inline Editing of Profile Field Values
The 'About Me' tab of each member's profile page has edit controls, allowing
them to quickly change values without leaving their profile page.


Attachment Viewing Lightbox
Clicking on an attached image will now open a lightbox rather than open a new window, with the image scaled to fit the browser viewport. A click on the image in the lightbox will open it in a new window as before.


And many more... that you'll discover as you use!

Enjoy yourself, and do let us know if you encounter any problems or require any assistance with the new system!
