New – The VirtualR Community Zone
After the most recent design change in July, there hasn’t been much innovation around here. This changes now as I´m happy to introduce a new feature: The VirtualR Community Zone.
I´m constantly receiving requests from readers who want a message forum, a chat or other kinds of community-building tools. Furthermore, lots of leagues and screenshot/video artists want to have their material featured on VirtualR, something that’s not really possible in the news portion of the site.
That’s why I came up with the community zone that will hopefully fit all those needs. It offers a message forum, live chat, photo and video upload and more. The Community Zone is all about user-generated content, discussion and networking. Readers can message each other, leagues can advertise their upcoming races in the events calendar and artists can showcase their material.
Some of the features:
- Personal Blogs
- Private Messages
- Photo/Video upload & galleries
- Online Racing Events Calendar
Since the community portion of the site is hosted by a different service provider, you´ll need to sign-up to become a member, signing up is as easy as creating an account for commenting here though.
Even though I´m getting quite a lot of requests on this stuff, I´m not completely sure how popular these features will be. That’s why the design of the community section is rather basic for a start, once it becomes popular I´ll be working on making it more appealing and integrate it more into the news portion of the site.
Please take your time to check it out, sign-up and leave me your features afterwards. I´m hoping to get lots of feedback on what features are wanted and what not so I can improve the community aspect of the site in the future.
Enough with the talking, click here to check out the new community zone – I´m looking forward to meet you all there! 🙂
