Thanks to the great feedback from my last blog, I've been plugin away when I have time on some more improvements to the site. For one, you will now be able to Autosubscribe to any content you are a part of on the site WITHOUT having to click on the subscribe button.
This means that people who post or replay to a forum thread will automatically be notified when that post is updated with a new comment. This was already common place on V2 and most other forums, but with V3 this works for everything from Blogs, news comments, stories etc. That means you can also find out when someone responds to your blog or news comment which should help with even more communication around the site.
This setting may be off by default for some, but you can easily enable it by going to your settings in the login box and scrolling down to Messaging and Notifications area. You can also set auto-notifications for all groups you belong to, but this may over lap with the universal Autosubscribe button. Personally I have it check off by default.
P.S. If you choose to lurk and not post, you can still keep track of any piece of content by hitting the subscribe button at the bottom of a post.
This really deserves its own post because I think it's so cool, but I didn't want to put up two alerts on the site. Division leaders now have the power to create their own news, events, updates, about the game divisions they run in the forums right on the homepage of 2o2p! If you look at the home page you will see a new tab that will filter out all the other 2o2p news and only show what our Divisions are up to.
If you haven't noticed already, Division leaders have been running the Halo, BF3, and Forza forums while breathing new life into the games they love. Many of them already have ideas in the works for playdates, tournaments, and game info and our goal is to have an even greater level of site interaction by giving them the power to keep the site update on the forums and homepage.
One of the big initiatives with V3 was to give a lot more power to the people that really run our community on a daily basis and I can't wait to see what some of these guys come up with. We've already seen great results from the BF3 forum with Playdates and our own Private Servers, so keep you eyes pealed on the homepage for even more news out of the Divisions team.
Check out the first division post on the home page from the Forza Forum.
As always, keep the feed back coming and don't stop submiting bugs to the Report forum so we can contuniue to fix and update the site.
