Hi all,

After my initial post about this in December, I'm pleased to say that Talk Whatever Online is just about ready for our official launch.

It's been a very busy 3 months, in this time we've:
  • Changed the domain name of Wrestling 101 (now Cult of Whatever) and Talk Wrestling Online (now Talk Whatever Online) and copied the sites over
  • Migrated our forum software from vBulletin to Xenforo
  • Re-designed both websites from scratch
  • Re-organised the forum layout
  • Recoded the Fantasy Wrestling League to work with Xenforo
  • Obtained a SSL certificate for our server (it activates the padlock and the https protocol and allows secure connections from a web server to a browser)
  • Upgraded the PHP and MYSQL on the server for improved performance
Although I'll still be tweaking various bits here and there, websites are always a work in progress :p

So, what's first?

> YOUR PROFILE

The first thing you should do is update your profile:

- Add a 'Current Status' message

- Upload a new avatar (If you would like to use one of our previous wrestling ones, click here for info)

- Add in your favourite movies/tv shows (mandatory fields on registration now) plus you can also add in your favourite video games and wrestlers plus who/what you support.

> REVIEW SETTINGS

Set your Privacy settings, Alert Preferences and Preferences

> USERGROUP PERMISSIONS

Your account permissions will have changed, click here to find out more.

So, what's new?

> TROPHIES

The Trophies system rewards members with virtual trophies and points for meeting certain criteria. It is also linked to the user title ladder, replacing the more traditional post count method.

The user title ladder is related to the number of trophy points accumulated; the more points you earn, the higher up the ladder you move, gaining the relevant user title as each threshold is passed.

If a custom user title is in effect (Subscribers) then it overrides the trophy user title ladder.

> ALERTS

You'll notice an Alerts link near the top right, this will alert you each time any of your alert preferences are actioned.

> TAGS

All members have the ability to send an alert to a member by tagging them in discussions. If you want to alert them all you need to do is write @ followed by their username anywhere in the post, so @username will notify username of the post they were tagged in.

> RESPONSIVE DESIGN

TWO no longer has the forum app but both Talk Whatever Online and Cult of Whatever are fully responsive. Click here to find out how to bookmark them on your mobile/tablet.

> NEW SOCIAL MEDIA WEBSITES

Instead of keeping the old social media accounts I've created new ones:

Talk Whatever Online: Facebook / Twitter
Cult of Whatever: Facebook / Twitter / Google+


Please like/follow our accounts!

Phew!

Enjoy...
