TitanX Games has undergone a major upgrade in our core web platform software that brings with it a lot of new features and services that make the website more engaging. I've listed below the most extreme of those changes, as well as some that are in consideration. Please feel free to share your feedback.


Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) Authy One-Touch (available and in consideration for dedicated push)

We've supported 2FA for a long time now. But it was always using an app (such as Authy or Google Authenticator) where you have to open up the app on your phone, and type out a 6 digit number into the website. With this update, we now support One-Touch logins through the Authy app. This means instead of having to open the app to login with 2FA; you will instead immediately receive a notification on your phone, where you can approve your login with a single button press.

For security reasons, 2FA is recommended across the entirety of the internet. This way, for someone to log in to your account, they would need to not only know your password, but also have your phone... which is far more unlikely. It literally costs us $0.09 every time someone logs in using Authy One-Touch; but for the security of our members, its worth it. If you'd like to see one touch ability, please let me know. You can enable 2FA from your account security page.

Push Notifications

Keeping on with expanding support for mobile devices. We now support push notifications! They can be enabled on your account preferences page on any device which supports push notifications. You may need to enable push notifications on your device if you have previously disabled them; but it can be nice to get instant updates without having to log in or check email.

"Likes" are Now Known as "Reactions"

There was a time on the internet where most websites only allowed "positive" reactions to posts. This of course meant you could "like" content, but you couldn't "dislike" it. The switch from "likes" to "reactions" means we can provide more verbose interactions with people's content. As well, people's like count is now known as a "reaction score"; which will weigh not only the positive reactions, but also the negative reactions. I am also looking for someone who would like to update our current reactions to more game oriented 32x32 images - if you're interested, please let me know.

Markdown Support and Improved Rich-Text Editing

BbCode is a widely used standard across forums on the internet. However, because of the rise in popularity of websites like Reddit and GitHub, the popularity of Markdown has increased as well. Markdown is a much easier to use formatting language than BbCode. As of now, we support the majority of universal Markdown syntax.

We have also expanded rich-text editing to areas on the website which usually had simpler formatting; such as profile posts and comments. You can now post rich content almost anywhere on this website (but not image attachments). The rich-text editor itself has also been improved, with many new syntax codes and features such as inline spoilers and table support.

Content Bookmarks and Sharing

Have you ever found a random post in the middle of a long thread that you wanted to hold onto somehow? Now you can. There is now a "bookmark" system in place that will allow you to save quick links to posts, comments, events, media, and even wiki articles. These bookmarks are easily accessible from your account drop-down menu on the top right of every page. You can even give bookmarks individual labels for filtering. With these bookmarks, also comes the ability to share directly to individual posts/comments, which was lost in the previous major upgrade.

Okay and in full disclosure: I totally took that from another website, because I was too lazy to write it on my own. However, these are our newest features and hopefully they will help make your web experience more engaging. ❤
