    New Site Preview - Activity, Achievements, Competiti

    This is a blog post. To read the original post, please click here »

    Happy Fourth of July to all of our US visitors! Today I have the pleasure of showing off one interesting addition to the new RGF that is in development. It's called vbActivity, and it is one method of encouraging people to be social by doing everything from posting and chatting, to making friends and voting in polls. There are also competitions for trophies and special awards that are only rewarded to extra special people.

    Speaking of competitions, have you voted in DIYGamer's Torchlight vs Shattered Horizon competition? The score is currently tied at 50%, so you should go vote and help us turn the tides! Also remember to retweet!



    Today's update is particularly long, so most of it will hidden behind a Read More tag. Be sure to click it to check out all of the images!

    We'll start out with the new profile area next to people's posts and comments. You can see some changes from earlier previews, including status updates, moods, and tabs to separate out all of the information stored there. Right now we have the stats tab enabled, which displays your activity.

    Here you can see how many downloads and uploads a person has done in our mods database. Below that is the vbActivity info. Points are given to you for almost everything you do on the site, with a few exceptions that we hope to remedy in the future. These points are currently only used for competition and level, but later this year there will be a forum game added on that will use these points, so you may want to start saving up as soon as you can!

    Below the points and level you can see the status bars, which are really just a rating to show you active you have been for the current day, week, and month. Finally, you can see the achievements and Awards, if you have any. I'll move on to achievements next, to give you an idea of what kind of things you can acquire over time.

    As a side note, the tabs in the profile picture are implemented in order to allow us to put a lot of data into that space without filling up the entire page. You can expect the basic "Profile" area to be a lot smaller when the page first loads.

    Now for that pesky Read More tag!

    Looks like fun. I'll be looking forward to the launch of the new site, hopefully just in time for some new news out of Runic as well.

    I'm gonna be pushing for it to be ready before then. I'm thinking I may have to bite the bullet and put it live with only the mods database (and most of the wiki) fully converted.
