Tip: Free Registration Changes


If you overheard the news about the subscription service changes this month, the changes we rolled out on the site today will be no surprise. Free registrants now have access to create a user created board, customize their forum name colors, and download videos in HD.

- User created boards: To create or change your UCB settings, go to members only and you’ll find a way to create your UCB there.

- Custom forum name colors: To change the color of your username in the forums, go to your settings under members only.

- HD video downloads: To download a video in HD, visit a video page and click the downloads button.

Two things:

Once created, how does one make changes- the User Created Board Admin doesn't appear to be accessible via Settings after the initial creation.

Do we not have the ability to administer to the board pages? E.g. is it possible to delete posts/threads/etc?

Works for me. But I had to refresh the page a couple of times for the options to appear.

The link about the changes seems to be off...it directs to the house of horrors video.

Never mind, got it to work by fooling around a bit like Kyoki suggested. Although it seems very buggy right now, I was able to change my color but then the option disappeared again once I clicked apply.

Everything still looks members only to me. Am I doing something wrong?

Got it working, currently takes a bit of refreshing/clicking the tabs. At least for the username colour change.

Just testing. This isn't working for me atm.

@s_h_a_d_o @JodyR You may be encountering a technical issue if you're not able to access the board as an admin. If you want some step by step help though, I'd suggest heading over to the how-to-gamespot board. :D

@Vari3ty It may take a moment for it to kick in for everyone! If you don't see these changes, clear your web browser cache.

@-KyoKi- Thanks! Refreshed 3 times and now I can change the color of my name.
