    Ok so as many of you know we have just revamped the site. Not only have we upgraded but we have also added many new features to the site. Here is a brief list of features we have added, there are many more, but here is some I have decided to showcase. (more to come)

    New Skins

    Yes I am sure many of you are upset that we have removed several skins. But we will be adding more daily! RIght now we currently have WirePro, WireGamer and WireGirls! Yes we have a Girls Edition of our site!!!

    Thread Tagging

    A new way to facilitate searching and grouping of threads, it is now possible for users to add tags to threads they post or read.

    Tags can be added when creating a new thread, or to an existing thread by any user (with appropriate permissions).

    Any users who then click on these tags will not only find all thread that have the same tag as the one clicked, but will also contribute to the building of a search tag cloud, which gives users a quick guide as to what has been searched for recently and most frequently.

    Reciprocal Friendships Between Users

    As part of our new social networking system, users can now request that people on their buddy list confirm their friendship, after which time a person's list of confirmed friends will be viewable to other users.

    Public Messaging

    The public messaging system, allowing users to communicate publicly via their profile pages.

    User Picture Galleries

    Users can now create albums and upload pictures to their account.

    User-Created Social Groups

    To further social cohesion between our users and to encourage people to make friends, we now offer a facility to allow WireForums members to create their own social/interest groups.

    These groups are enhanced by having their own public messaging system, and the ability to add pictures to the group from user albums.

    New Member Profile Page

    In order to accomodate all the new features, the member profile page has been completely redesigned from the ground up.

    The new page presents information in a far cleaner and more logical manner, while dividing up information into manageable chunks using a tabbed interface.

    Individual profile field categories can be displayed alone in blocks in the right column, in addition to appearing by default in the 'About Me' tab.

    Member Customization of Profile Page

    Our members will have the abilty to use the profile page customization tool, which allows our members to alter fonts, colors, background and borders etc. of their profile page in order to create a more personalized look.

    Attachment Viewing Lightbox

    Clicking on an attached image will now open a lightbox rather than open a new window, with the image scaled to fit the browser viewport. A click on the image in the lightbox will open it in a new window as before.


    WireXperience is an advanced Level and Activity System with Shop and Awards. It will calculate an activity and experience score for every user based on their activites on the forum. For more information on WireXperience click:
