We made some major changes to the jag-stang.com forum a few weeks ago. Now that everything is getting settled into place I thought it would be a good time to point out some of the more interesting new features the forum has to offer.
One of my favorite new features is the mobile version of the forum. It is an extremely streamlined and simplified version of the forum which make interaction through mobile devices much easier. Not to mention load faster as well.
Just point your mobile browser to http://www.jag-stang.com/forum and the mobile version automatically loads up. It works particularly well on the iPhone and Android OS devices.
Below is a screenshot of how the forum appears on an iPod touch.
The real value of discussion forums has continued to evolve over the years making it more important than ever to be able to easily discover and connect to those new friends. The new version of the forum gives the user even more tools to let others get to know and contact them. You can do status updates on your profile or even pipe your Twitter status updates into your profile. Also more profile personalizations exist to further set yourself apart.
Another cool feature is the ability to login with your Facebook and/or Twitter accounts to the forum. Or existing forum members can link their existing forum profile to their Facebook and Twitter accounts.
We still realize that there is certain appeal to the anonymity that exists in forums and we totally respect your desire to be that way. So even though we have all these new social features you can still create new accounts and provide as little information about yourself as you see fit.
Looking forward to all the feedback on the new forum. We have a lot more site updates and changes in store for the coming months. And a big THANKS to everyone who has visited and continues to visit us!
PS: You can access the forums by clicking the ‘Forum’ link in the tool bar towards the top of the site. Or visit: http://www.jag-stang.com/forum
