View Full Version : Zoints!!!

I'm pleased to announce that we now utilize Zoints! To get an idea of what Zoints offers, please take this quick tour (http://zoints.com/tour/forum-members/).

What is Zoints?

Zoints is a forum network and profile system utilized by more than 125 forums, including many of the largest in the world (http://www.big-boards.com/kw/zoints/). It provides you with new features such as your own highly customizable personal webpage, photo albums, blog, page to show off your vehicle, means to keep track of friends, and MUCH more. In turn, Zoints is designed to help bring new members who share the same interests as we do to this forum. An example profile of a car forum member can be seen here (http://nasiocnick.zoints.com).

Before I go further, if you don't want to use Zoints, don't worry, you can turn it off by going to your user control panel options page and unchecking the boxes at the very bottom.

Getting Started

To link to your profile, follow these easy steps:

Step 1:

Go to the Zoints dropdown at the top and click on "My Profile"


Step 2:

If you already have a Zoints account, login. Or select create your profile.


Step 3:

Create your account (it takes 30 seconds max) and that's it. You can now play with the most powerful profile system on the net :)

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Do I HAVE to use Zoints? Can't I just turn off the box and links without linking to my profile?

A. No, you don't have to use Zoints. To turn it off, go to your user control panel, then edit options. Scroll to the very bottom and uncheck the two boxes under "Zoints Options".

is this like a myspace on crack???

08-30-2006, 06:06 PM
Its more like an expanded member profile but it's like MySpace in the fact that it's in a network or sorts.

Come on guys, I know there are more of you out there that wanna make one of these. It's easier than I thought.

And check out mine while you're at it :)

08-30-2006, 06:29 PM
I'm thinking about it... Not sure if I want something else to maintain right now with a little one on the way...

Everyone's pages looks good though!

Yeah I never thought it could be so much fun to have until I saw how simple and eay it was to make it personalized.

08-31-2006, 05:08 PM
Yeah, it does seem really cool. I like how it's like a whole one stop place for pictures, blogs, and such. Very cool that you can find all the people from message boards.
