    Lightbulb Zoints Community ~ Your own place on the web

    I'm pleased to announce that we now utilize Zoints! To get an idea of what Zoints offers, please take this quick tour.

    What is Zoints?

    Zoints is a forum network and profile system utilized by more than 250 forums, including many of the largest in the world. It provides you with new features such as:
    • Your own highly customizable personal webpage with built-in editing tools (so you don't need to know web design) + no bandwidth limits like you experience with web space provided by your internet service provider!!
    • Photo albums
    • Blog ~ an awesome way to document your tank(s) and it's progression.
    • Page to show off your aquarium(s)
    • Means to keep track of friends
    • ...and MUCH more.
    In turn, Zoints is designed to help bring new members who share the same interests as we do to our forum. An example profile of a car forum member can be seen here.

    Before I go further, if you don't want to use Zoints, don't worry, you can turn it off by going to your user control panel options page and unchecking the boxes at the very bottom.



    Getting Started


    To link to your profile, follow these easy steps:

    Go to your UserCP. At the very top, you will see a box that says:

    This will take you to Zoints.


    Step 2:

    If you already have a Zoints account, login via the link at the top. Otherwise, register an account (it takes seconds).


    Step 3:

    That's it! You can now play with the most powerful profile system on the net

    Lightbulb What is a Blog?

    What is a Blog?

    Source = http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blog

    A blog is a website where entries are made in journal style and displayed in a reverse chronological order.

    Blogs often provide commentary or news on a particular subject, such as food, politics, or local news; some function as more personal online diaries. A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs, web pages, and other media related to its topic. Most blogs are primarily textual although some focus on photographs (photoblog), videos (vlog), or audio (podcasting), and are part of a wider network of social media.

    The term "blog" is a contraction of "Web log." "Blog" can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.



    The Blog features on your linked Zoints profile will allow you to keep a journal of your aquarium(s) - to highlight your progression.

    It allows others to look over it - and for you to be able to review the history as well.
