Default Steelers Fever Update 9/3

Everyone LOVED the "Post Thanks" feature, as it gives members the ability to simply say "thank you" to a post with the click of a button. Now, normally, forums shy away from anything that may take away from forum discussion, but I truly believe it's more important that our members are happy and entertained at Steelers Fever, and I could really care less about our post count or Google ranking.

All that matters to me is that everyone is happy, entertained and drawn in by the upgrades and features we implement. We've announced a few new features and even a new "look" for the forum with the help of you guys and my fellow administrators and moderators, but this next announcement is something VERY cool and VERY major. I won't keep you waiting any longer, so here we go:

Introducing: User tagging & Shoutbox!

You can now tag a Steelers Fever member by simply placing the "@" symbol before their name! Example:

@Steelstoned1972

He'll be here in about ten minutes wondering what the hell he was notified of.

Tagging a user in a thread is a great way to bring something to said users attention. Steelers Fever is a big forum, and due to time differences, a user can completely miss out on something as topics easily get buried throughout the course of the today. Now you can be a pal and tag your buddy in a post and he'll get a notification whenever he hops on!

This is all very much like Facebook and Twitters tagging system. In fact, it's almost identical.

Shoutbox:

The VB Shoutbox is a cool little feature suggested by DragonByte tech. It's a chat room with a vast amount of custom options and abilities that I can't wait to delve into. You'll be seeing more of that just as soon as I learn my way around it behind the scenes.

The Shoutbox can simply be a place for members to hang while waiting for replies/messages, or even maybe an alternate gameday hangout sometime in the future. I think we'll be using it a little tonight for the Steelers Fever fantasy draft if I can ever get it figured out.

Enjoy everyone!

I can be used as an alternate, yes. I have no problem with both a game day thread & a chat, to be honest. Each member will have his/her own preference, and I like that we can offer options. This is a lot more than just a chat box, however. This puppy plays sounds when chat invites are received, private messages are received, and even when a "shout" is made. It has so many options behind the hood that i'm actually having trouble wrapping my mind around it.

Keep a look out, I may have a version of it up for testing in a few moments. Just need to read things over a little.

Well, email alerts isn't a bad thing, but i'd rather it be something that people enable. I don't want the system sending out emails that people potentially may not want.

I've disabled email alerts for now. I also disabled the original "Quote Notification" system as it seems this new tagging system has the same thing built in, and I was receiving double the quote notifications. Sorry for anyone else who noticed this.
