Seeing as it this a bit of a slow Titan news period (the calm before the storm hopefully), I figured I should do a quick recap of the site's features. These are some of the more general ones... the Titan specific "addons" will be introduced in the following months as we receive access to more info.
In the future, if you'll want to read through this list or see more info about the site, you'll find everything you need in the Site F.A.Q. topic. If not, ask... the Feedback, Suggestions and Help section is especially made for this. Smaller tweaks usually get added to the Change Log thread. So here we go.
- Uniform - It's the default one. Light skin with the option of customizing it's background. To do this press the "Customize background image" button situated top right, after "View New Content" and under the main tabs.
- Animate - simple dark skin with no customization options. (will be available in max 48 hours, after I test it a bit).
- Mobile - for smartphones use only.
To change between them press the "Change Theme" link in the lower left corner.
This will be a main feature later on, when we'll have access to Titan media. As a member, you can view, comment and add images to the existing albums. For now, only the "Titan players" album (and its sub albums) are open for image adding. You can also create your own album (see the profile paragraph).
Images from the gallery will be often featured on the site, either through automatic methods like sidebar / forum plugins or manually, by inclusion in articles (with full credit and benefits to the uploader of course)
To access the gallery, checkout the main tab wit the same name.
3. View New Content
You can find it in the top right section, right under the main tabs.
Useful to see what's been added to the site since your last visit or just unread content in total. There are numerous filtering options... you can see forum topics / replies, news articles, gallery images / videos. You can also sort by time period and by your participation in a certain discussion.
4. Your profile
It contains every activity you do on the site: your friends, topics, replies, reputation points and so on. It also has some unique features:
- you can maintain your own "wall" with status updates visible to everyone and open to comments
- create albums attached to your profile in which you can upload images (set Member Albums as parent album)
- set your signature, avatar and all the profile info
- manage notifications (decide what alerts you should receive and where).
- send / receive private messages
Stay in sync with the news by following the site through RSS. Alternatively you can stay close to Titan MMO's Twitter and Facebook pages where I post all the news and also extra stuff that doesn't make it to the frontpage.
That's it for now, but the site is always changing and by the time we get more seriously into Titan news, I plan to make it a full experience, with rich community features and even richer game guides / tools. Stay close!
