I'm pleased to announce that we now utilize Zoints! To get an idea of what Zoints offers, please take this quick tour.
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. 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.
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.
To link to your profile, follow these easy steps:
Go to the Zoints dropdown at the top and click on "My Profile"
If you already have a Zoints account, login. Or select create your profile.
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 :)
