Webby is updating the foootballsfuture platform and is currently testing it out with mods and select members. If you are interested in being a part of the beta phase of this update, follow the link and post in there.


http://www.footballsfuture.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=589148

Webby has a lot more info in there about the update. The new site is much more modern, mobile-friendly, and has a lot of new features. It is scheduled to be live before the start of the NFL season.

It's my understanding that the forum update is just the first of many updates to footballsfuture.

I will be updating the forum to a brand new modern software platform before the NFL season starts. The new forum will have a modern look with a responsive mobile design that automatically adjusts to work great on any device and includes a host of exciting new features:

- Improved posting features with automatic embedding of links from services like twitter and youtube.
- An extensive notification system that members can customize to their needs.
- Ignore and like features so you can ignore members you donít want to see and like high-quality posts.
- Detailed profile pages with much more customization and informtaion.
- @member mentions to address specific members in a given topic.
- Improved quoting features so no more mess of quote trees.
- Improved search, private messaging, and much more.

FAQ:

When will the forum transition over to the new software platform?
We are currently in the alpha stages of testing the platform. We are moving to beta testing this week. If the beta test goes well the transition should happen in about a month. The goal is to have everything complete before the NFL season starts.

What do I need to do to get ready for the transition?
Update your profile with a current email address. When the transition happens youíll receive an email to the address in your profile with your temporary password for the new forum platform. You can then setup your account on the new forum platform.

How can I help beta test the new forum?

I enjoy the current forum. What if I donít want to learn a bunch of new features?
Donít worry. All the new features are optional. You can use them all or just the basic posting features. The basic features and structure of the new forum are very similar to this forum. Youíll be comfortable with it in no time at all. Our focus is great football talk and that isnít going to change.

So the new site is pretty cool. You can "like" posts, you can tag other posters, and you get notifications just like in Facebook or any other social media. I think everyone is going to really like it.

I think the tagging part is going to help a lot when mentioning other posters in big threads.

It'll have a different color scheme, but for the most part it'll look the same....except that it'll actually fit to your mobile screen. Laughing

The avatars are also circular-shaped, so that's different too.

Btw, it's really weird posting on two different FFs at once. It's like going to an alternate reality...kinda like stranger things.
