Navigation Update

Many of the pages have been updated with dynamic navigation menus, with particular attention given to the various member lists. These should allow a smoother, more intuitive navigation of the website.

As a general reminder, many of the member pages have no content other than a character’s name, archetype and powersets. Please a description of your character(s) to have them included in the member lists. The member lists include members of Star Patrol and their affiliated super groups (including villain groups).


A Few Cosmetic Changes

I’ve updated in a few, tiny ways in an attempt to improve overall appearance and user enjoyment of the website. In the admin section (which you only see upon logging in or when editing your profile info) you will see “Hello, [display name]” instead of “Howdy, [display name]”. I may have been born a cowboy, but I’ve been thoroughly urbanized so “hello” it is. In the header of public site I’ve included “Welcome, [display name]” next to the rss feed icon in the upper right of the page, which will only display for logged in users. Currently it displays nothing if not logged in, so in the future I may include a “Login” link.

In the forum, I’ve replaced the default “new posts” and “no new post” icons with icons displaying the Star Patrol logo.


Star Patrol Is Now Open

… for new membership subscriptions/registrations.

A number of players have already been registered for the website, allowing them to post comments and post to the forum. At this time, there is now a “Register” link in the sidebar allowing additional members, or interested persons, to sign up. Member registered on the website will also receive updates on Star Patrol activities by email.


Post Subscriptions Are Active

I’ve added the post subscription service to Star Patrol, allowing users to subscribe to new posts. Existing users should be automatically subscribed to all posts (in which case, you’ll have received notification of this post by email). If not, you will need to update your subscription options if you’d like to receive updates by email.


Website is Live

The new and improved website is now live. Everything is pretty much fulling functional, but if you see something acting oddly, please comment below.

Everyone’s login info (that I have) is being emailed out now, feel free to change your passwords after your first login. Also, don’t forget to set up a Gravatar using your email address to display a unique avatar on the forums. If you would like a proxy email to associate with your Gravatar, I can easily create a [you] which forwards email to your actual email. I just need to know this before I create your login.
