You've been wondeirng what we're doing on the back-end. Well before we just mass-dump the new users over here, we're going to implement a new profile system that networks with other forums to create something like MySpace sans the emo faggots and attention whores.

I've been testing this system to see if it's a good fit, and it's honestly much better than what we've installed. Those of you with MySpace accounts might even completely abandon them as this network is going to eventually rival or eclipse MySpace-like sites fairly easily as more forums are added to the network.

Pre-packaged shpeil follows:

Zoints provides an easy means for you not only to create an incredible profile, but to connect with new people and manage those contacts in an efficient manner.

Configuring your profile is a snap! You can simply drag and drop any of the blocks to the desired location. Don't like a block? Simply click on the http://img.zoints.com/public/profile/icon_delete.gif and it disappears (it can always be added back later). An example of a block being dragged to a new location:

If you don't like the look or color of your profile, you can change it with a single click. Zoints comes with different color default styles, you can create your own, OR you browse through hundreds of member created and shared styles in the Style Database. An example of how easy it is to change the look of your profile:

The interface for creating a new style and editing single blocks is very easy to use:

There are three editing modes. "Advanced" where you can drag and drop blocks, "simple" which allows blocks to be moved with arrows, and "disabled" which shows you your profile as other members would see it. Switching between the three modes is quick and easy:

There are MANY additional blocks you can add to your profile with just a couple clicks. Or, if you're a more advanced user, you can code and use your own (Zoints allows most HTML and .css to be used). An example of some blocks:

If you like .rss feeds, there are quite a few ready for you to add. Or, if you want to use one not already provided, you can create a new .rss block VERY easy using the "create new block" system:

There's a lot to do on Zoints. You can meet new people and add them to your network:

Search for others using the powerful search system:

Rate other members or let them rate you:

Add "interest tags" that, when clicked, show you other members who share those same interests as you:

http://img3.zoints.com/forums/features/zoints_features3.png



The "network interests" block lists interest tags that those members who are in your personal network have listed. The more people who share an interest, the larger the tag becomes:

If you want to let others send you a real quick message, why not utilize the "social actions" block?

Some sites just have "friends", Zoints goes the extra mile and lets you have friends and any other group you want to create. YOU create and manage your groups:

Zoints has an extremely powerful permissions system that allows you to show the content you want to the users you want. You can show different content to one group than you do to another group:

There is so much more to Zoints than what has been listed here. Dive right in and explore the system for yourself!

I just tried to look at your new profile but you haven't linked your Sociocide profile to it yet! The Zoints system is a profile / social network that helps Sociocide gain new members and revenue. To link your profile, click here and follow the easy steps!

Gee, thanks really. I don't like Spam, nor do I want to join the intarweb singles/swinging scene. I cleared some fine old PMs for this nonsense! Forgive me, Doc!

I'll check what's up with that.

By the way, the Zoints thing is more or less here to stay. You guys should take the time to snatch up your domain name before someone else does.

For example:

Fortunately, soon it won't matter what certain crotchety, change-fearing fuckers amongst us care about.

And apathy was doing a better job of running things into the ground than anyone else could.

Cheese 'n rice, that was a close one!

But, thanks to some quick clicking and typing, my eDentity is secure.

I scoff at all you slow motherfuckers.

If nothing else, it seems to be providing 'fresh meat' for a holiday bbq - CTC/Sociocide style.
