salam E-DZers,

as it's always been the case with E-DZ, we always try to make our forums the best possible for our members. Having said that, soon we'll be adding some awesome new features to the forum which, I'm sure, will get everyone excited.

  • Minimizing the side panels

    You'll be able to minimize any side panel, which you don't use, on the home page of the forums.
  • Adding Comments to Statuses (like facebook)

    Attached File  comment.png   12.53KB   13 downloads
    Attached File  comment2.png   13.18KB   14 downloads

    Every status message will have a comments' section underneath it which will allow you to comment on it without having to change your own status to comment on others' like we're doing now :P
  • Preview a topic

    With this option, members can preview the topic content without having to click on it.
  • Reputation or Thanks View

    Attached File  reputation.png   8.98KB   12 downloads

  • Easy Login and sign up

  • Facebook Connect

    Members can link their facebook account with their forum one, this way their status can be updated through facebook or vice versa.

Great Job Beebo    :rockon:

What can my enemies possibly do to me? My paradise is in my heart; wherever I go it goes with me, insepa­rable from me. For me, prison is a place of (religious) retreat; ex­ecution is my opportunity for martyrdom; and exile from my town is but a chance to travel ......

Well to be honest khti, I've been begging pple to use the suggestion forums and to also try and get involved and give me some ideas, but as you can see nothing.

I'm just one guy, I need help so I'm always open to ideas.... I just need to hear them smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

It looks superb, really user-friendly :D Jazaka Allahou kahiran ya Beebo smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

The advertising bit is easy..just get people to put a link to e-dz on their emails or something..unless you want something really big..
But we want members that actually contribute to e-dz and not just sign up and get welcome and head for the 'sign out' and never turn up again :D

Done is better than perfect.

wellah ya beebo it looks already awesome mashallah ... all what have been doing till now is great !! I just find the site is not very known comparing to all what it contains .

I already suggested you to make a video :P

Then , try to add 'About us' to the site ... we had it before in previous versions ... there was a text about how it started and how it evaluated ..

ok, let's see the new features first smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' /> and then we'll think more about adverts ...


Good luck admin ... thanks again.

Great suggestion and I totally agree with you on the email, we have made a special topic regarding that Support E-DZ where we created pictures and signatures for everyone to use in their emails to post on facebook and stuff.

We need quality and not quantity and that's always been the case for us alhamdulilah.

See I totally forgot about that wallah, thanks for reminding me about both the video and about us section. inshallah I'll make sure both are done perfectly and make sure we send the video out to everyone smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

  • Chat Will have a number next to it indicating the number of people chatting (we'll only be able to have 5 people chatting at once, since most of the time that's the maximum, but we do have our backup chat which we can use with unlimited numbers)
  • New Search capabilities which allow you to choose which part of the forum you want to search
  • Notification Area (sort of like facebook) where you'll be notified if someone sent you a message or replied to your status ect.
  • Lock function for your status message which will disable anyone from replying to your status message
There will also be a new Mobile skin which is much much better than the previous one:

I'll try to inshallah have a green skin available to support our National Team as well.. lots of things coming and I am pretty excited so inshallah all goes well smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

Beebo...legend. Enough said.

Really glad that you are implementing the Chat feature. Will introducing the Chat feature mean that the shout box will be removed ? Because having both will make the site load even slower. It would be ideal to stick to one of them. The shoutbox or the Chat.

Any estimate at how long the update down time for the forum will take or is expected to last ? Hopefully it can be completed in time for us to discuss the friendly Match vs UAE.

Well the chat won't be hosted on our server, so that won't take anything out of our server's speed nor the resources. I'm actually going with having the shoutbox on the main page only to start with.

haha ya my main concern was the friendly game discussion too which is why I scheduled the update for tomorrow night. inshallah shouldn't be more than a couple of hours. I will just have to ensure all the main functions are working properly, open the forum back up again and then deal with any minor issues (if any) afterwords smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

Yeah I was abt to ask u abt it , cuz I had the National Team green skin then it changed on its own to E-DZ's smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':S' />
but now am guessin that u removed it lol

other than that I really cant wait for the new updates :D

Great job Beebo :clap: but I dnt think the option that allows u to read the topic without clicking on it would be a good one to be honest cuz then less ppl will read topics no ?

Plus it will ruin the surprise when we use weird topic titles so ppl get curios lol

so the site will be down tonight
I hope it wont take more than few hours Insha'Allah :D
