Back to BBCode

Hey everyone,

today we are reintroducing BBCode as markup language for blog posts and forums. While Markdown was nice, a lot of you simply like BBCode better. So here it is! We hope you will like the new editor, it even allows you to add some simple HTML, if ever needed. Editing old posts could potentially be some work, but who changes old content anyways... ;)

We have also added a small feature which should improve tagging other users. Simply write @ and start with the username to get some auto suggestions.

We have also fixed some stuff, most notably if you had problems adding Steam to your linked accounts in the past days, please try again.

More new stuff soon!

Cheers,
Chocy

Bugfixes and More Updates Coming

Hey everyone,

after further upgrading our server infrastructure this morning, we have just uploaded a small update. This time it's mostly bug fixes, etc. The Battlefield 3 identities should work again, we added clan tags and Russian profile support for StarCraft 2 and are now providing the option to resize your profile picture, which was requested a lot lately.

We also decided to move away from those big monthly updates, which introduced a lot of changes at once in the past, and rather continuously put out smaller updates on a weekly basis. So you should see more blog posts coming up soon.

As always thanks to everyone who sent in feedback, bug reports and suggestions. You guys help improving Anook so much - thanks! If you want to help out grow Anook, like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and tell your friends to join!

See you on Anook,

PlanetSide 2 Gaming Identity, Featured Nooks, Tags and more

Hello everyone,

oh boy, this took us so much longer than expected..., so I'm very happy to announce, that our new update is finally here! You can now add your PlanetSide 2 characters to your Anook profile! We are working with the official API from Sony, which is still in beta, so there may be more features (and the character's gender) added later on.

We also want to introduce a new tagging system for games, which is allowing game moderators, streamers and nook admins to help you find the content you are interested in. In the next days all major games will be extended by an array of tags, which can then be added to nooks and live streams. We also have plans to use those tags for blog posts, pictures and more upcoming features in the future.

Furthermore we have spent a lot of time improving our fame system. If you check your fame tab on the home screen, you'll notice that we don't give out fame points for single contributions anymore, but rather accumulate your daily fame gain depending on your contributions, live streams and the communities' feedback. Your previous fame rating may have changed a bit, don't worry, we removed some small calculation bugs so everyone is on the same page now.

Also we added a ton of bugfixes and other small improvements. A big Thank You to everyone who submitted reports and posted suggestions on the development forum. We didn't get everything in, but the next update is on the horizon already!

I also want to take the time to thank everyone who helped spreading the word in the last weeks! Thank you so much for your support. Without you this website would not exist!

See you on Anook,
