I have been killing myself trying to bring you new features. Slaving, laboring, contemplating and eventually completing new cool code to bring you closer to your fellow geeky Clash of Clans friends. Why do I do this? Why do I put forth so much effort? For that twinkle in your eye my friend, that twinkle.
Anyways, I've created a point system called Credibility. Credibility is basically a means of giving back to those members of the community who have put forth the effort to make our site a lil more useful. If you've posted guides, useful plans, posted comments or forum posts, you'll most likely have some credibility.
What does Credibility do, you ask?
Plainly put, it helps you get chicks. Okay, that may not at all be true (or is it? eh, eh!?!?). Credibility just makes you more awesome in front of all your friends (assuming your friends use this website) and you get ranked based on your awesomeness. Every place you make a comment or contribution they'll see that shiny new nameplate of yours with your credibility score and of course, your badass title.
Why am I a loincloth?
Because I was in your front yard last night, around 10 pm and you, my friend, closely resembled a loincloth and I felt the world should know about it. Either that or it's just the title given to you for your credibility ranking. The more credibility you earn you'll "level up" and you'll get a new title. I'm not going to share the level quotas with you because I am a cruel and vile mistress and that just wouldn't be fun. Nonetheless, the names get a little less goofy and more badass as you level up. Hey look, if you don't wanna look like a loincloth (note: sweaty loincloth, in your case) I strongly urge you to post more cool content for us to look at. If we deem it worthy you could upgrade yourself to a codpiece by tomorrow. Wouldn't that be grand?
Where can I see my Credibility Ranking?
is the man! Oh and if you scroll all the way down to the bottom of the credibility ranking page, you'll find your current ranking.
I have more questions about credibility and I will have my answers!
Well now, that question was asked in such a manly manner! Don't worry, I kind of figured there would be a lot of questions so I created a FAQ section which I'll get into in a little bit, but for now you can visit:
New Messaging System!
We all have dirty little secrets, take me for instance. I am a playboy spy who plays video games for fun and I've dated my share of supermodels who I've left very satisfied and sadly, heart broken. Whew… man, it feels to get that secret out there! You too can share your secrets or just other things that don't need to be said in forum or comment section.
If you visit http://clashofclansbuilder.com/messages
(if you're logged in) you can just sit there and type away to your friends. The page will refresh for you and let you know if anyone has messaged you within 30 seconds of the message being received. It's kind of nifty and can make communication a little easier, especially if you're chatting in real-time on the site. I'm going to be adding a lot more smoothness to this feature in the coming months. I'd like people to have very easy going communication on the site and since we're going heavy on the community, I think this feature will help with that.
Recruitment just got a wee bit easier
I've added the ability for members to easily message the creators of recruitment clan listings in the clan page so they can actually coordinate recruitment a little more smoothly.
And where do I find my list of so-called messages?
First make sure you are logged in then you can easily access your messages under the 'Accounts' tab. If you can't find the message section from there, you probably shouldn't be messaging anyone in the first place.
Frequently Asked Questions
With the creation of some of these features and a few other recurring questions, I felt that it would be a good time to expand our Frequently Asked Question section. The lovely http://clashofclansbuilder.com/users/Wightsage
will be working with me to keep everything up to date and ensure that your questions are answered. She's also been writing a decent amount of the answers in the new FAQ section and she makes things go much smoother.
Look, I'm a busy man with all the playboy super modelling stuff competing for my schedule, contact is rough. The frequently asked questions will cover more stuff so you don't have to wait for my slow and unfathomably boring replies.
As always, feel free to give your feedback below. If you find some problems with the new functionality, please please please . We'll figure it out and get things sorted.
Oh and that awesome Pancho Villa art can be found at this very talented artist's deviantART page at http://www.deviantart.com/morelikethis/191522
