    Greetings Arkadians

    As you well have noticed, the forum has had a major overhaul. We have migrated from Vbulletin to Xenforo as many of you have already requested and the time has come.

    With this upgrade comes many of the old features and many that are new. We have taken time in the creation of this new platform and we made sure that every precaution has been taken to make sure all your previous posts and input has been saved. So lets get into some of the new features.

    Reputation System

    Yes, you all have been asking for it for years and we have put it in. We made sure that the higher your reputation is the more trophies you can acquire on your profile. Here is the other nice little perk, everyone from the old system that had already had reputation added to their profile will now have everything back from the days of old. Meaning if you were the shining star in the universe, people will see it again.

    So start getting those likes on.

    Credits

    Yes, the forum has a new system in place for credits. These credits will be used for future purchases from the forum directly. Some of these purchases will include extra features on the forum, extra items to spice up your profile, in-game exchanges and real life items.

    How do I make credits?

    Simple!!! You just have to be active on the forum. Every action you do on the forum from new posts, likes, comments, status updates, following other members and literally reading posts of other members will count at you gaining credits.

    Of course there are also ways of loosing credits and that is by getting your posts reported, being flagged as a spammer and bad behavior.

    Moods

    Had an epic day on the planet hunting and got yourself a HoF or been frustrated that you couldn't loot that one thing off that other bit from you know where. EXPRESS YOURSELF!!!

    We have added this feature for you to be yourself and express you mood to the community. We like to know what you feel and what inspired you to feel that way. Let us all know.

    Smilies

    Folks, you may find you'll have to redo certain parts of your forum avatars (such as your signature pictures). If you have any question please PM Dylan, Mathias or myself and we'll help out out.

    I do like the new changes to the forum. Are there future plans for skins/color scheme options? (or are they currently available, and I just can't figure out where?) I know for some the light on dark BG is a lot harder on the eyes.

    Aside from the question, I felt I had to post in order to try out a new smiley or two. :eek: :battleroar: o_O

    When new skins are available, you'll be able to choose them by clicking the link in the very bottom left of ANY forum page.

    Also, I know that almost all of the links to other posts/threads etc and Pics are currently broken, it's an unfortunate side effect of the change over that we are working hard to fix. Please don't send any more messages regarding this as my box is already over flowing ;)

    Very nice. Hopefully there will be brighter skins. Black backgrounds for gaming forums feels a bit old now.
