View Full Version : New Profile System

If you click your name in the top right, you'll be redirected to a new profile system. It negates profile styles and most information you previously entered(such as Date of Birth, Name, etc), so you have to enter them again. There's a very big upside, though:

For one, you can now organize your friends through preset groups or groups you create. You can also manage a blog and customize not only the style of your profile, but where each "block" is located on your page as well(with a simple click-and-drag interface). You can customize your theme just like the old profile, but there's something better: you can use themes our members have made as well, so your theme can be easily used by others if they so choose. There's a lot more for you to discover(including tons of "blocks" that don't display by default; look below for info), so head to your profile and get things set up.

In regard to the "blocks", they are little containers of different kinds of information. You'll see exactly what I mean when you go to your profile. You can customize these blocks individually, as well as delete existing blocks and add blocks that don't display by default. To accomplish the latter, just hover over "profile" while in your profile, and select "Add New Blocks". There will be an extensive list of blocks for you to choose from and customize.

If you guys have any questions, complaints, or suggestions, leave them here and I promise to go through all of them. Thanks for reading.

Thanks. Sorry, everyone, for the growing pains before it was ready.

Something is messed up in my profile. I'm not able to edit certain things. Check it out, especially my About Me section is really effed up. IDK why it is like that. :(

I love it. This one adds a lot more in depth customization compared the old one. I could spend a lot of time on this, just like facebook lol.
Awesome Cartman. Just pure Awesome.

Though, I do have a few concerns.
Like, the PMs you get for friend requests and comments are annoying. Is it possible to have notifications like in the old system?
Also, Is it possible to implement this new feature with LittleBigExperience? The old system seems to be still in place, when it comes to littlebigexperience. And we can't see how what we got points for anymore and such.
We can't even see our points anymore (Except in LittleBigExperience list, but I doubt everyone's going to start searching their names :/ It was a lot easier just checking your profile)

The Experience was a huge part of the site, and I'd hate to see a chunk of it going away, just for a flashy profile

Click your name on any post for a drop down list that shows your xp its not perfect but its faster then checking the list.

Next time you get a PM, look at the bottom of the message. It provides instructions on configuring PMs and emails.

LittleBigExperience still works fine. Just click your name anywhere on the forum and you'll see your current status. LittleBigExperience is supposed to be more of a "background" feature anyway.

I did check it out before posting here. There's only 2 options, emails and Private messages. But oh well.


Does having friends, comments on your profiles, and the such still count towards points? I really can't tell like this.

Alright, here's what I did: I configured it so now the old system still exists, but the new system is there for you to use if you'd like. There's a link at the top of every profile directing you to that person's Zoints profile. This way, you guys don't have to use this, but those of you who want to(like me) can.

That's because you have Negative points lol. Same with me.
I'm guessing it happened with the sudden change of rules with the Forum games >_> Ah well.

That's because you made most of your points off of forum games. When I set it so they don't count, it dropped you into the negative. I'm gonna give you guys(there are 5 of you) some custom points and bring you back up to 100 xp or so.

^ Basically what I said. Except I can't give out points. Thanks a lot Cartman xD You're the best.

It shows people how much they really contribute. :rolleyes:

Alright, problem solved. I know it's not perfect, but you guys will come back up fairly quickly. It's weird that the ones who dropped are the ones who contribute a bunch, but that's why I had no qualms about fixing it.

I lost 150 points I think >_>
But some people lost from a range of 400-600 XD I can't wait till more people come online, and LittleBigExperience gets updated.

Well, with me and Rabid-Coot's case, it's because we had just bought Elite not long ago. (Though Rabid also bought a few more Items after Elite)

Yeah, I've already gotten PMs about it. It's not a problem, though. It's a lot more balanced this way.

Hello all - First post here.

Cannot wait for this game to be released. As a beta tester I am now gutted that the servers have been turned off.

counting the days!

There is, but it annoyed some people to have it set as default. Many weren't interested in customizing their profile.

Oops, my bad on the wording. What I meant to say is that there's no option that I can click so that when my username is clicked it brings me to the Zoints profile? That way those who like to use it will be taken there automatically, which those who don't... won't =P
