New Website Released By: IL-Axel Date: May 15, 2008, 03:44:48 pm
I'm happy to announce the release of the latest version of our website - v.8 if I remember correctly.
There's more to come in the next two months, including much missed player profiles, field maps, a new gallery, paintball videos...
New features already available are:
- Lo-fi / text only version
Ideal for PDA/smart phone access. You can also find the link on the bottom of every page.
- Member Map
Put yourself on the map and discover paintballers near you.
- Bling new profile fields
to big-up your team and tell the world+dog about the cool gear you have
- Easily embed videos
from YouTube, Google Video, etc by just posting the link!
- Less forums
means less time wasted browsing.
I've reduced the number of forums, since it became a bit daunting to moderate and actually find stuff.
- Send topics/pages to your mates
using the new "Send this topic" feature (top right above each topic; registered site users only)
- Faster site performance
due to sleeker underpinnings means you can read more in less time.
- Cleaner front-page
I kicked out all the bits that distracted the eye from our home page, making it easier to find out what's new and take in the relevant bits.
- More secure
and no more log-in problems. I hope at least...
- Easier sign-up process
New users no longer need to activate their accounts but can log-in and participate straight away.
- More fun off the field through our friends at |HSO| online gaming clan.
...Oh and our IRC channel on Quakenet.org is back online again!irc.quakenet.org #ironlions

I've now completed the switch to v8 and have moved the old v7 to the following location: http://www.ironlions.co.uk/v7/
where you can still view old stuff for another month or so until I had a chance to move gallery and files. You will not be able to post there!
