- SDH FORUM UPGRADE 4.2 -

 
Following the crucial help and suggestions from the SDH VIPs and Supporters, we bring to you the newest SDH Forum Upgrade, which contains several all-around improvements and introduces a long time requested feature.
 
You already noticed some of these changes that have been gradually deployed in the past couple of weeks (and I was glad to see you are already enjoying them!), but we're now ready to announce them all!
 
1) MORE MEDIA SUPPORTED
 
Here it is. Finally, more media is now supported to be embedded on the forums: in addition to YouTube you will now be able to embed videos from Dailymotion, Vine, Vimeo, GameTrailers, IGN and Gamespot, and you will even be able to embed pictures from Instagram. It works exactly like Youtube: simply copy and paste the URL!
 
Examples:
 

Spoiler

Feel free to test them!
 
 
2) REVAMPED USER INFO PANE AND PROFILE FIELDS
 
The way the side profile information is displayed has been completely re-invented and revamped, with brand new custom bars that make users' social accounts such as Twitter, PSN and Xbox Live stand out much more!
 
Also:

  • Avatar width limit has now been increased to 175px. Dimension limit is now 175 x 250.
  • Avatar size limit has now been increased to 300 kb. This should allow for more GIFs to work as avatars.
  • Removed Group Names under the avatar (since we already have the Group Image).
  • Removed the stars that were displayed under the avatar based on the amount of posts
  • Youtube added as a custom profile field that can be displayed (with its own custom bar)
     

3) CALENDAR: ADD YOUR EVENTS
 
We decided to spice up the usability of the calendar. The calendar is now open for everybody to CREATE events.
 
By clicking on "Add Event" you will be able to add anything you want to the calendar: Online Season shows, forum anniversaries, Videogames release dates, Wrestling PPV events, or any other important dates you feel like to add!
 
Events can be rated and commented by other users.
 
If you want, in your notification options you can decide to be notified when new events are posted to the calendar.
 
 
4) NEW BOARD RULE ADDED
 
A new rule has been added to the SDH Official Board Rules:
 
Cyberbullying won't be tolerated here. - PENALTY: 3 points
It is the consistent use of any form of electronic communication such as the Internet, phone, tablet, etc. as a weapon of choice to threaten, harass, torture, or humiliate another person. It is the intention to cause harm to another person, moderator's discretion will be used to determine the severity.
 
 
5) MORE MISCELLANEOUS UPDATES

  • Increased the maximum number of allowed quotes per post from 4 to 5.
  • Decreased the concurrent posts merging time to from 10 minutes to 5 minutes.
  • Wrestling Fan Clubs now have their own section
  • "Professional Wrestling" category has been moved above "Other Wrestling Videogames" category.
  • Shortened the Forum description of many sections in order to make the Forum index more compact
  • PlayStation 3 & Xbox 360 prefixes added as clickable subcategories in the WWE 2K14 Creations Forums
  • Forum Rules added on top of WWE 2K14 Creations Forums
  • Removed Profile Rating
  • SDH Logo Favicon has been restored

 
 
And it's not over yet! A "Creation of the Week" contest will be launched soon (with a brand new Forum Award), and even sooner than that I will announce a big unprecedent surprise for the WWE Games Community that will take place exclusively here on SDH! Stay tuned!
 
I hope you enjoy the new changes, let us know what you think - your feedback matters!

Holly cow this is a big step! Awesome changes, this forum keeps getting better and better :)
 
I really love those new social media bars, they look so sexy :P
Glad that we finally have more video support, that was the thing that everyone were talking about and BOOM!
Agree with all the others size limits etc. and the new rule is great, will keep away trolls and other creeps that are punched by life.
 

And it's not over yet! A "Creation of the Week" contest will be launched soon (with a brand new Forum Award), and even sooner than that I will announce a big unprecedent surprise for the WWE Games Community that will take place exclusively here on SDH! Stay tuned!

 
Can't wait 4 that ;)
 
Since there is a lot of design updates, what about some SDH logo changes? I mean logo is great but by just adding something to it would be great :)

Amazing as always!

The forum looks more active/friendly and colorfull right now than ever before if you ask me, and yes i know they where few changes but, it actually means a lot. Also,

Here's a suggestion:

Why not have a option to change the background part of the forum also? (Dont know whats it called, lol) If we can change the decorations than we should have the option to change the background.

I'd REALLY Like to have a Black Grey background with Orange decorations (the liner parts, Originally Blue if you don't know what decorations i'm talking about)

And... Can't WAIT for the surprise you have in store for us. Keep up the Great Work 8)

Very nice updates. I do hope though that the anti-bullying rule isn't abused as bullying can be interpreted wrong by some, but anyway good job, keep it up fellas.
