This thread will always have up to date information on the sites development. We will list features that are being developed and encourage you to post suggestions and comments below. We'll do our best to launch new features quickly, but our development team is well...me hahaha so some of the advanced features may take time to develop.
Features Being Developed Right Now:
User Blogs: Let users publish their own stories / articles. Other users can comment.
User Photos: Allow users to upload photos to their account and let others comment.
Spell Checker for rich-text: Allow users to check spelling of their posts using the rich-text editor
Admins Don't Get User Points: It seems silly for admins / editors to build user points, we would always be at the top of the list. Need to patch a fix for this. Moderators will still be able to get user points.
Twitter for Shogun - FIXED: News stories automatically post to our twitter page (need to setup twitter account right)
Twitter for users - Ready: Needs Blogs: When a user posts a new blog they can have the option to auto publish to their twitter.
Big Projects (will take much longer to build and launch):
Better User Profiles: Facebook style comment wall, buddy lists, private message system, recent blog display, user photo gallery windows.
Chakra Points as currency: Spend chakra points to enter site wide events and and contests.
Badges / Trophies: Users can earn trophies / badges for accomplishing certain things or participating in special site events.
Level System: Will likely be based on # of posts (especially if chakra can be spent). Will attach a level ranking / name to each user. Example: "LEVEL 2 - Apprentice."
