Wednesday 13th June - Race Night - FH3
As from the previous post about race nights I am wanting to get this up and running. This has been very successful in the past and am sure it will be again.

Therefore I am hosting a Forza Horizon 3 night on Wednesday 13th June 2018 with a planned 8:30pm start.

Nothing else will be planned on this night so it is a case of turning up and see where we end up with. The benefit with Horizon games is there is racing point to point, Infection and many others we can all try.

Therefore please can you post your interest below and ensure that I am on your friends list so I invite you into a private chat and get things rolling on time.

Achievements & Badges
It's been a bit quiet on the update front for a while, but we've been working hard and the first of a few announcements over the next couple of days is that the site awards are now coming back.

The awards will form two main areas - Achievements and Badges

Achievements

Will unlock and earn these for carrying out various tasks on the site.    Most Achievements have a series of levels to them, unlock one, then you can win the next one which replaces the previous version.   You will receive a notification as you achieve each goal and as these are getting added over the next few days, expect to see a few notifications and awards if you have met the conditions of the award already.

As more features are added to the site, then more Achievements will be added.

 

Badges

These are given out for getting involved with our various events, supporting and promoting XBS or just general gaming.    A lot of these will only be available for a short time only, so if you miss the chance to win it the first time, you probably won't get another chance, so seize the opportunity and earn those rare badges.

 

Details of all Achievements and Badges can be found by clicking on the link on the "Browse" menu or at at the bottom of the site, it officialy goes live on the 1st June along with Member of the Month coming back, voting for May will open immediately and announced at the end of next week.

Connecting
Our next two features announcements are around connectivity, streaming and communication.  These two features are Discord and Twitch accordingly.

Discord

This will give you another way to communicate with site members.   OF course you need a discord account, but if you have the app on your phone you can receive a notification of someone being on, posting a message to arrange a game of something etc..   Or you can just use it to chat to compliment or an alternative to Xbox Live chat

Once you have yourself a Discord account, joining couldn't be easier.   The widget is found on the forum index as below, simply click on the join us button


 

Twitch

If you want to show off your gaming skills or already have an established channel then you can put it up on here by going to our Streams feature.   BTW, if you want to submit some captures to  us, this is a great way to do it as you will be able to record your entire stream to go back and view / edit later.

Again, assuming you have a Twitch account this is how you add your stream.  Hit the streams link on the main menu, then;


Select the "Add New Stream" button


Add your channel Title and Name, if you want to be notified of replies on the site to your channel (comments) hit the notify me of replies switch


Enter your description and if you want to show your Twitch chat off, then hit that option too.   Pick save then everytime you are online and streaming on Twitch, it will appear here.

 

There are plans for Mixer here as well.

Games with Gold: March 2018

Gaming Reviews
Another new feature launched immediately is the ability for Gold Members and above to submit a review on any game they have played on the Xbox One.

There are approx 25 games already in the system for you to review, but feel free to add your own.

Whether you want to review an existing entry or create a new one, it is incredibly simple to do, it is very intuitive, but if you want to find out more, hit that "How Can I?" menu option and navigate to Game Reviews and enjoy the short read 
Obviously in the community spirit we want to hear each others opinions on games, after all we will probably game more with members on here than anywhere else, so knowing what game to get to join in co-op etc is will possibly be based on your fellow members recommendations.   But we also want to use this information to feed into what is popular so we can successfully theme gaming nights, game of the month and also a further insight into what should be included in XBS Gaming

Anyway, over to you lot and get reviewing

Helping you around XBS
In-case you haven't already seen it, there is a menu option called "How Can I?"

Very basically this will give you information on how to use some of the features around the site.  We take for granted that you are experienced forum users, and whilst this software is on the whole very intuitive, there are bits that may be difficult to know how to do.

I appreciate it isn't conclusive at this moment and it will be added to, in fact, I'd appreciate it if there is something you want to know how to do, or even write a help article yourself, then please put it in the Member Support & Site Feedback forum for us to pick it up.
