New Forum Features: Albums, Social Groups and Profile Styling
As part of the site's makeover, there are new options for you!


Albums allow you to store and retrieve your uploaded images independently of external hosts. You can access albums under the Community tab in the menu bar at the top of each forum page.

Social Groups allow you to create your own circles to discuss subjects of interest. You can access Social Groups under the Community tab, as well.

Profile Styling allows you to customize your profile. You can use an image from one of your albums as a background/wallpaper image, and you can customize fonts, borders, and background colors. Profile Styling can be found in your User CP in the Your Profile tab.

Have fun exploring these new options!

I have a question about the social groups. Will those actively be moderated by mods or will mods only look at them if a member reports a problem there? Would it be possible to, for example, create a group to talk about MDC rankings there since such a thread is not allowed on the main forums?

I love the profile customization feature And the possibility of creating photo albums is very useful, too. I love all those improvements!

We'll figure it out as we go ...and if it creates too many problems we can certainly set rules and moderate it all. But right now ... we have no plans to actively moderate social groups. I expect that most tFS members will respect each other enough to keep it nice for everyone.

Great, thanks for your answer, Bette. Not that I plan to start flame wars there or anything, but it's good to know we are able to talk more freely about our interests in the groups. The forum rules mostly still apply, I assume?

Whilst playing around with the album feature I created an album that is terrible. How do I delete it?
Thanks.

No idea. I haven't had time to play around with any of theses features yet and there is no training for Mods. But Tangerine is quick to pick up on this sort of thing so maybe he has learned something about this.

I love the new features, it's great!

I was wondering if maybe would be possible to have a "like" button like in facebook and tumblr. It would be really nice, we can go through our favorite posts easily and faster. I don't know if this would work on foruns, but it would be really great. Anyway, if it's a bad idea, just ignore me haha.

I have some pictures I want to add to a thread but don't have an external site to add them from (since they are coming off of my Facebook/computer) so should I make an album on my 'profile' and then add them? Is that how the 'album' thingy works? Thanks

Yes, you can use your album for picture storage. Once you have uploaded photos to your album, you can use the provided image URLs just as you would from an external image host. Of course, you still have to credit your images as usual!
