GTAGaming V2 - Part One.

GTAGaming.com - Website Updates | @ 10:25 PM MDT | By Shawn
You've surely noticed there's a bit of a difference while looking at the site - part one of the long awaited GTAGaming V2 has been unleashed. Because of the complexity of this project there may be some bugs that need fixing so please bear with us as we finish this up. If you notice anything that is not right, please post it in the comments and I will attend to it.

To list what some of the changes/additions are:
  Slightly newer, cleaner and refreshing design.
  The addition of 'Zones' - Our answer to having a "Network" all on one site!
  New designs/color themes for individual zones.
  Completely revamped News engine with features not yet revealed.
  News now uses properly implemented category features and will only show news related to the active zone.
  The "posted by" bar is color-coded based on what category the news item is for.
  Revamped comments system which should make our forum regulars feel at home.
  Posting comments now increases your edgeforums post count!
  Dynamic menus based on active zone, providing significantly improved navigation.
  News Archives (anyone use this?) have been improved. Search feature coming soon.

There is a lot more to come in the future...

So here's a sneak peak!
  A news searching feature.
  Ability to customize frontpage news to show what you want to see!
  Anything you see around the site that is clearly being worked on will undergo a revamp and be more functional than ever. Example: Our affiliates system.
  Most importantly - our forums over on edgeforums.net will at some point be moving over here to GTAGaming.com. This will give us greater control over the forums and the ability to customize it for this site.
  Hey, I said a sneak peak, I'm not revealing everything!

With San Andreas just around the corner and my instant addiction to any game starting with a "Grand Theft Auto", Part Two may be .. delayed slightly .. I am afterall a gamer too :)

We're still using edgeforums for the time being. We wanted to get this much online before San Andreas was released so I held back several features that would not have made it in time. Our forums will be moving here in the future, though.

The site looks AWESOME!! All kinds of new features, it's so kickass.

You should think about spicing up the forum's. Hopefully they won't look the same, I would like to see something new and fresh.

I feel like I'm going to have to start deleting posts about the countdown, it was gone for 20 minutes because I forgot to add it to the new files - should I be punished for all eternity? :P

Hmm, comments increasing post count. Don't know if that is such a good idea but what the hey! I've said it once, I've said it twice but GTA Gaming Version 2 is excellent.

If it's abused, the abuser will be banned from posting comments, simple as that. That ban will only stop them from comments, they'll still be able to use the forums.

... unless of course they get banned there, then well.

If you're banned at the forums does that mean you're not permitted to post comments therefore banned from posting comments?

It is kinda useless afterall I guess, except for screwing people around when they click it by accident.. :P
But yeah, posts went up by how many comments you've made so far too.

No, edit buttons are only for moderators.
We've considered allowing people to edit their posts, maybe we'll change our mind later.

Once again, nice job Shawn.

Take your time playing San Andreas, no rush to complete this. We're all waiting for this game including you, so take some time off and play for a while. :D

I did it.
As you can see I don't really post news or do up content, my roles are development/design/server administration.
