Running on a new server, owned by myself, so we are no longer depended on sponsered hardware. (Though the internet connection is still shared with the Rednas Group)
Most noticable feature-wise will probally be the fact that the forums have been promoted to a full portal site, housing the entire Keep's site.
Next to the portal, here are some of the new features :
- New level's of User Permissions,
the senior moderators & hosted modmakers now actually have their own user level, completly seperated from the normal moderator level.
With this, the senior moderators get access to their own control panel, and the hosted modmakers will be able to access their own filecenter categories.
- A User Control Panel,
everything that has effect on you, can now be found here, your profile settings, favorites, buddy list, ignore list, personal photo album and more.
- An integrated File Center,
the pafiledb setup has been rewritten and integrated into the forums system.
- A Knowledge base,
all the articles, file guides, howto's, interview's and more is now neatly categorized into a knowledge base, including a feature to search through them.
- Photo Albums,
should they want, modmakers can now get a photo album where they can upload preview screenshot to from their work in progress. If they want to, public uploads can be allowed, but will feature a approve block before becoming publicly viewable.
- Attachements & Calendar events,
some forums will allow you to attach files or images to your posts, some other forums (or maybe the same, all depending on the settings) will allow a topic to be linked with a date, these topics will then show up on the calendar.
Looking for the "Print this topic" or "Email this topic"? Then check out the new NavSlices which holds them.
- Lots and Lots more, for these please have a look in the Modifications Listing, which also has been updated to a new version.
