Customising your INC experience

Unread postby Grandma » Tue Feb 05, 2013 9:33 am

There are many ways to change the way you use and view the INC website - here's an overview of a few bits and pieces.

Site appearance
Depending on your preferences and perhaps your favorite game or mood you can customise the forum appearance to suit you. This appearance will stick with you on that machine (it's cookie based). By using the 'site appearance' menu at the top of the forum and selecting a skin you like the look of, it will change to that for your browsing of the site. There are some for each of the popular games and a few that are abstract. There are different ones for different sized browser windows as not all scale well for smaller screens.

Your personal avatar
Via the 'user control panel' under the 'forum index' menu at the top of the screen - you can customise which avatar your profile uses - the image that appears to the side of all posts you make. This option is under 'profile' and 'edit avatar'. There is a gallery you can use which has 2,500+ different and varied images all at a suitable size an covering a wide range of games and topics. You may also upload your own to the forum by using the 'Upload from local computer' option, or indeed link one to elsewhere. Be aware that when using these options you need to specify an image that is 100*100 pixels, as anything bigger will not be allowed.

If you use the PSN, Wii, Steam or xfire - you can use this utility to place a special link into our profile that updates itself. The usage instructions are continaed on that page

It's also possible for you to manage your subscriptions around the forum. These are threads that you are keeping an eye on and will get an email when replies are posted. You can subscribe to any thread on the forum using the links above and below each topic.

There is a blog feature on the INC website that allows for each user to keep their own blog - it's also possible for people to customise the appearance via their own css code - as well as just using one of the default provided versions.

Of course there are also the standard sorts of options such as signature, account options etc.
