Please note the latest changes made to the website below:



New forum structure:

In the past, categories such as "Battlefield Vietnam" for example contained a forum within itself, thus users would post directly into there and generally not make use of the actual correct subforums. This has now been removed. All the forum sections have been re-built with an improved structure.



BB Code errors:

There was an issue where using BB code in DM's would create error messages, I'm not sure if users who sent DM's experienced this but it was noted in the server log. This issue has now been fixed and all BB code should be working perfectly fine.



Theme / Style:

I've recently upgraded the Light theme for the website, which is the default, there are some minute changes visibly but most of the changes are hidden in the code. During this upgrade, I also looked at the dark theme, however I've noticed there is a small incompatibility issue with it with some pages and certain forum sections. Thus for the mean time being, until I can find a dark style that that is compatible and also fully responsive (i.e. universally useable across different devices). As a further result, the option to change themes is obviously disabled until that time comes.

I realize the dark theme is favored by some and I apologize for this.



New Category - Player & Admin Reports:

When I say new, I've actually just brought it to the top and moved it. This category is now found under the "HelloClan Gaming" section visible on the home forum page (https://www.helloclan.eu). This was done with the idea to make reporting players even easier, without having to navigate to the Battlefield Vietnam section, then the report section. Short links for the report section have also been made and are reflecting across our platforms.



More readily accessible info for BFV:

I have also re-done the Help section under BFV. It is now titled "Support & FAQ's. This section contains two sub-sections. The first being the "FAQ's & Resources" section, of which contains the most common BFV issues we know about and their relevant fix.

The second sub-section contains the "Support" section. This is where a user can tell us what hassles they are having. Also, these forums have their own set of custom links which will be displayed across our platforms.



Finally, the Affiliation Program:

Officially, we are now accepting applications to become partners with other communities. This is with the idea in mind to further spread the news of HelloClan, whilst also assisting a few other communities along the way that are not direct competition to us. If you would like to learn more, please visit following link: https://www.helloclan.eu/affiliate/info



Not related to the forum exactly, but the Discord server has also received a slight overhaul. Changes having been made to make navigation easier and collected resources in one channel.




I hope that the changes I've made are welcome, if you have another suggestion, please let me know here. :)




Regards,
Ice

FURTHER, FURTHER UPDATE:

It was very long overdue, but I've finally restored nearly all of the forum topics that remained from the old site. This included events, teams, divisions & media etc. If you were ever looking for a post and couldn't find it, chances are now that you will find it. :)

Additional Update:

I have enabled the social fields and upgraded the custom fields for the most common social media fields. If you filled these out when you created your profile here, such as location etc, you'll see it will show up on your profile posts.

You can add your steam name, insta, twitter & facebook names (provided you want to share this publicly), in short course I will also create the custom field for Origin, Twitch & youtube.



These things are of course completely optional for you to add, it's only there to be more interactive or to share your platforms.

New Update:

Introducing the ability to add a bit of color to your username. Head over to your account details page: https://www.helloclan.eu/account/account-details and you will see right at the top that you can choose from a preset list of colors.

For Admins, you specifically have access to the same color that your user group is. If you want, I'd suggest changing to this color so it matches. ;)

I will in due course be making a usergroup specially for HelloClan members that will also have access a very special name color.



If you have color suggestions, drop them here with an @IceSkater mention. ;)

NEW UPDATE:

I've now added the user group "HelloClan Member". I've also restructured how user groups are shown. I digress at the moment they don't look so cool, but it's a work in progress.

With the HelloClan member, users who are HelloClan members will be added to the group which shows they're a HC member and they will have access to the "HelloClan Member Gold" user name color available from the Account Settings page.

So attention all HC members, please drop me a DM or mention here or anywhere basically so that I can add you. I will only be adding the active people at the moment.



Regards,
Ice

UPDATE:

The previous plugin I was using for username color changes appeared to have an issue after a certain number of users changed their name colors. So I've opted for a more normal method. This time it's not locked to user groups or anything. The first two colors are of course used by staff but I'll work around that. The third color on the first row is the actual HelloClan Member Gold color if you want to use that as a HelloClan Member.

I've not locked them to groups as mentioned, so you can have any color there that you may fancy. :)

Along with this update there comes something else:

You can now change your username without having to ask a forum staff member and you can also deactivate your account as well as reactivate it without staff intervention. :)

Ice
