      *Ed Note: The following article was posted last February 17, 2013:

      It’s five more days ‘til February 22 – and you pre-historic iSTORYAns know what that date signifies!

      Ding, ding ding!

      Ring any bell? Why, of course, it’s iSTORYA.NET’s 11th anniversary! And we are happy to announce that this Friday, iSTORYA.NET is coming up with a site upgrade that will make you want to browse the site more than your usual addictive habits!


      blog.geocaching.com

      With the said upgrade approaching in the next few days, let’s take a look at what new features to expect and eventually be delighted by at the end of the development cycle (a.k.a. Beor’s hibernation), which would be around, yes, in due time for our 11th anniversary—Feb 22, 2013!!! Have I said the date twice already? Am I obviously excited? Why of course! And yes, you should all be!

      So here we go:

      1. Page Color Customization— One of the most feverishly-developed feature that we should all look forward to is the Theme Customizer. This feature provides a new way to browse the site. It also gives you an easy-to-use, real-time tool to effortlessly apply background colors and patterns and allows you to have control over the color theme of your page. While iSTORYA.NET remains with its official colors, it gives the user freedom on theme colors (with 10 colors to choose from), save trips to different Appearance settings and improve usability as a whole.

      2. Activity Stream- one of the newest and most visible features that you can notice in the upgrade this Feb 22 is the Activity Stream. There will be a new tab called “What’s New” which gives access to said stream. It is exactly what it sounds like, a stream of the latest activities on your iSTORYA.NET page from the users.

      This can include everything from replies to threads, articles, blogs, etc. It gives the user a quick overview of what’s been going on while you’ve been logged out. This means that you can get instant access to things that are important to you without having to go through and search for them. Of course, you can control what your Activity Stream displays. After all, it is YOUR streaming.

      3. Raffles- With a growing number of supporters and sponsors, we are more than happy to share our blessings! The Raffles Tab will give the users access to ongoing site promos, contests and its corresponding prizes! And winning prizes is as easy as 1, 2, 3 or in our technical jargon-- browsing threads, reading homepage articles and participating in forums!

      4. More Community Activities- iSTORYA.NET is coming up with more community activities for further community services and more interactions. Furthermore, iSTORYA.NET is also partnering up with different events, concerts and other social activities. It will allow you to not just interact in the forums, but if you are willing, you can actually do more than just talk—you can help reach out and bridge gaps. Stay tuned for our upcoming activities.

      5. Buy and Sell’s Premium Stickies—With more than half a million threads, more than 13million posts, and more than a hundred thousand members only means one thing-- there is a big traffic going on in this site! Any businessman would know that posting a Buy and Sell thread in iSTORYA.NET generates a lot of potential customers and eventually, lots of potential sales. It also means posting a Buy and Sell thread and making it stay within the 1st page of the forums is not an easy feat, most especially if you do not bump and bump and worse, if you get kicked out because you do not follow forum rules.

      In our upgrade this Feb 22, the first 10 posts in Page 1 of every Forum you’re selling your products in, will be up for grabs for a minimal cost. This means, no more 24/7 lurking to guard your thread and bump it to stay on top. This means, it stays on top for a certain amount of time and all you have to do is to interact with your customers with ease.

      This feature will be further discussed in a separate article. Should you be interested, you can email our marketing guy at norman@istorya.net to inquire about further information or available spaces for premium stickies.

      Other Improvements
      • Bug fixes
      • Faster interaction on forums
      • More engaging homepage articles!
      • Social media widgets—share your posts directly to Facebook, twitter, and other social media
      • Groups- create groups according to commonalities!
      • Blogs and thread Promotions- Content Manager will browse through blogs and feature engaging and interesting topics. Moreover, threads can be promoted to the homepage for more interaction.


      The 02-22-13 upgrade makes significant advances in our site interaction. iSTORYA.NET is proud and determined to be able to further create a premier platform that will make interaction more worthwhile. After all, there is a reason why we are titled Cebu's Most Active and the Philippines' Strongest Online Community.

      For those who are eagerly awaiting our upgrade, checking iSTORYA.NET every day hoping to see some updates (Donkey’s “Are we there yet” popping on my mind), keep an eye out for further information in our homepage!
