WELCOME TO WINE BERSERKERS 2.0!
First of all, why the change?
Because Wine Berserkers was founded quite some time ago, the software available for discussion forums wasn’t as complex and scalable as what is now available. We worked through all available systems to find the best fit, and are quite pleased with this system, allowing us a better user experience, FAR easier media sharing, and customizable interfaces, in color combinations, font size, even overall format (list versus category view, etc)
Tips and tricks:
(More commonly asked topics are posted as separate threads in the hope guides are easier to find for users - click the threads of each for specific instructions on each topic)
Private Messages and Profiles
Those ITB can now easily just add ‘flair’ to their accounts. On the upper right, you see ‘Groups’
Then you can join ITB by clicking ‘Join’
It should then give you the ITB ‘flair’ by your profile pic, but if not, in ‘Preferences’ (click your profile pic, upper right, then the person icon, then preferences) and scroll down in the ‘Account’ (default) section to ‘Flair’ - you should be able to choose ITB if you aren’t already pre-assigned another category. Note that BerserkerBusiness members have their own category flair already, and obviously that counts as ITB
System Email Addresses
Many of you have old email addresses in the system - I strongly encourage you to change those, update them, particularly given the rich feature set in notifications on this site.
‘Last Post’ and how this software manages your reading/viewing
Viewing Preferences - ‘View New Posts’ Etc
You can further customize your viewing preferences with the commands atop the forum, allowing you to choose by category view, ‘top’ posts, your own, unread, etc
Quoting text in a reply
VERY easy, and you can select which text you want to quote, if the entire post or just one part of it. Simply highlight the text you want to quote and hit ‘quote’, it will populate in the editor for you. You can scroll through the thread on the preview on the right and select quotes from multiple posts as well
Furthermore, if you already hit ‘reply’ but didn’t highlight any text, you simply hit the speech bubble icon and the post will be inserted into yours as a quote
You can easily use the quote function multiple times in one post, as expertly witnessed in this post by @CFu
It’s made super easy here - you can screenshot images, copy them on your system (or mobile device) and just paste them in the editor. Instagram and YouTube links auto-embed as well, simply copy the URL of the page (don’t need to get any embed/share code, just the URL)
