Just wanted to welcome you all to the new forums here at Grifball.net! It's a work in progress, I would have preferred to polish things off a bit more before opening them to the public, but the old system just had to go.

Please, if you run across any errors, things that don't look right, or something you just don't like, let us know and we'll try to fix it up right away!

I should also mention that your profile is even more fragmented now:

View your NGA Career (Player Profile)

View your Website User Profile
Edit your Website User Profile

View your Forum Profile
Edit your Forum Profile

And at the moment we also have two separate private message systems:

View Website Private Messages
View Forum Private Messages

I apologize for any confusion this causes - I will work on combining these ASAP! :)

A few website updates here:

- In addition to being able to leave comments on other website user and players profiles, you can now do the same with teams. All three can also be flagged as either a Friend or an Enemy now, and you can edit comments you have previously posted.

- When posting to the new forums, a weird blue message box would show up with just a number inside. This has been fixed.

Teams will now be able to create a Team Profile. Teams which have already played in a previous event or season for the NGA can already do this - newly registering teams for this season will have to wait until tomorrow.

Here's an example: Clutch Betrayal

Previously registered team Captains can go to the Team List and click Edit next to their team in the list. You'll be taken to a form where you can change your team name, location and description. You can also specify a URL to a team logo, and a URL to your team thread in the forums. And you can also control whether other captains on your team will have the ability to edit your team's roster.

- Your team's location can be anything you want - but we suggest putting the general area(s) your players are from.

- Your team description can use any standard BBCode you'd like (don't overuse large text, bold or colors though - or we may have to remove the BBCode support).

- The team logo must be hosted somewhere else on the internet - if you need help with this, just PM shadowxtc, attach your team logo, and we'll take care of it.

- The team thread URL can point to anywhere you'd like to send people who are interested in finding out more about your team, but we suggest that you create a thread in our forums.

- If you enable other captains on your team to edit your team's roster, they will only be able to make changes in events or seasons where they are marked as a captain, and the system will make sure they abide by our various rules (eg: maximum of 8 players, no changes after roster lock, one team per player).

There's still a few things to be finished and cleaned up, we'll get to that as soon as possible!
