SlySpyder has a new forum!

I finally got around to installing a good forum for us to use at SlySpyder.com

You can access it here. It’s pretty nice, here are some of the features:

  • Embed various videos from across the web
  • Any forum posts you make show up on the main site activity and on your profile activity.
  • Has a spoiler function
  • Ranks
  • Photo you upload in your main profile carries over to the forum
  • Shows active users and online users
  • Displays the points your earned by reviewing things on SlySpdyer

If you have people asking you questions about your review. It’s best to bring it over to the forum. Then just put a link to the topic you create (in this section) in your listing or review.


New SlySpyder.com Features You’ll Love!

Just wanted to give you a heads up on some great new features on SlySpyder!

On review listings with a address there is a embedded Google Map with street view in most cases! For some examples see this page. You can actually get directions right from that page too!

But the biggest upgrade is a great new social tool. You can add people as friends, create groups, send private messages to each other. Add photos, link videos and applications to your profile (for example: Playstation Network ID Card, Xbox Live Gamercard, Flickr Gallery, and more!), update your status, etc. There is now a global activity feed on the home page now. It’s pretty cool stuff, play with it and get used it more.
