Yes, we finally have our official website launched and it's packed with content and features! As of right now, the best way to visit our site is with a standard desktop browser to view all of the site's artwork. In the future, I'll work on having a more friendly mobile version. Here are some of the features, not all, that I've included for our site.
Members and prospective members, don't forget to register!
Events: I've created an event listing for different dates during the year. This listing will also be added to the membership pdf document and I'll repost the updated version.
Forums: We now have member forums. I won't go into detail regarding the different sections, they are self explanatory. The more you post in the forums, the more you can rank up within the website, outside of the game ranking. As you rank up, you automatically receive a custom emblem pertaining to your forum rank. The ranks are the same as our in game ranks.
Site Ranks: When you post on the forums or reply to posts, you will notice two Starfleet ranks. The first is your in game rank, and the second is your rank based on your activity on the forums as described above.
Gallery: We have a user gallery. I've already created some galleries such as ship glamour shots, character shots etc. On the left and right panels of the site, there is Images Recently Uploaded and Images Recently Viewed. The 'uploaded' shows a preview of the most recent five images posted to any gallery, and the 'viewed' are the most recently viewed images.
Chat: There is a chat built into the website. I still want us to use Band as it's more accessible on mobiles while sitting infront of your television. I included a chat for future members who do not get on Band for whatever reasons. If you decide to use it or try it, you must be logged into the website to use it.
Twitch: I've included Twitch streaming on the site. When you register, you can access your profile afterwards and in the edit profile options, there is a spot to put your own personal Twitch channel address. On the right side bar of the website, it will show the names of 3 members who are currently streaming. Clicking on their name will take you to their Twitch channel. I thought about doing a single channel for the fleet and everyone having access to that one channel but this was the better option. Allows anyone to stream and it's their own personal streams.
Member Recognition: There is a widget on the left panel for this. This will show member's birthdays when they arrive, newest members who have joined etc.
RSS Feeds: For those who subscribe to RSS Feeds for their favorite sites and new sites, there are RSS options through the site.
