Idea taken from facebook: Tagging.

Tag a character name, when the character/user logs in on the website it says "You have been tagged!" or emails you.

Made a start on a bespoke news system today with flexible backend admin :) . Will also enable commenting on news articles by characters that are logged in.

This essentially means we can deliver news to you in a much easier way with the use of images and also quite nicely a thumbnail associated to what the news is about.

Still deciding what we're doing as regards to forum :) could create a bespoke asp one but thats probably too far :).

When commenting on an article use @Playername to link to a player or #guildname to mention a guild. :)

Maybe being a bit picky here, but any chance you could make the 'Myth of Soma' main logo defualt back to the homepage, always finding myself clicking it and there's no link. :?

Loving the news system addition.

Haha I really should think I didn't at first as that's a body bg image will have to have an absolute positioned a tag :)


Fixed.

Had to do a global site find and replace (fun) -.- and a 100% width a tag as the body bg will change during seasonal events etc.

Security feature added cant make any more than 3 account related requests in 24 hours including:

- Creating an account
- Requesting passwords

Essentially means stops database and mail server spam.

Implemented gravatars into the site those with a Gravatar account should have their avatars showing instead of a character image.
