    From the FVPAA Admins


    First off, I want to thank all the people who made this site possible, especially the 25 donors who helped directly in turning this site into a reality.

    Next I want to talk to you guys about some of the main features this site has :

    1.) Mentions - You can mention anybody, by using a "@" followed by their gamertag.
    2.) Instant Content Menu - You need anything? just use our menu, we have made the site very easy to use with our new menu that has almost every functionality you would want from the site. How?


    A.) The "News" menu contains our latest Magazine, in addition to some quick news we want to share with you.
    B.) The "VPN App" Menu contains of course the VPN App like never before, use it from everywhere in the site without having to go to a different C.) page.
    D.) The "Twitch" Menu contains our FVPAA's Twitch Stream and it's Chat page. It also includes other twitch related links.
    The "ACL Control Center" contains a new way to check out the stats in a very easy to use page. Just click on the stat you want and it will display E.) for you right there.
    F.) The "FVPAA" menu contains some helpful links for new members regarding the site, and it also features the quick links to our Groups, Award Articles, and the 'What's new?' module of the forum that will let you display the latest activity that's on the site.
    G.) The "Forums" and "Home" menus are just direct links to the homepage and the forums themselves.

    3.) Twitch Integration - Our community is very active on Twitch, so we decided that our site had to have an integration with our streamers. You can now add your twitch to your account, and in return the forum will notify (via the shoutbox) when your stream has gone live. People can also access your stream directly from the forum without having to leave the site.

    4.) Notifications System - We invested in a truly powerful notifications system that will no doubt make the use of this site very easy. You'll get notifications for every reply in your discussions, mentions, visitor messages to your profile page, your private messages, group replies, etc. You can also tone down this via the settings button. This notification system is essentially the top bar that contains the black icons.

    5.) Xbox Live integration - This forum is specifically designed for Xbox players. We want this community to be an Xbox One only forum. We will be rebuilding the PS4 community from the ground up, meaning they'll get a separate forum.


    Other features are Groups you can create and use as your "private forums" for your teams and discussions (these can be acceses from the "FVPAA" menu tab), the best Shoutbox in the market, and many more things and details.

    Another thing I wanted to talk to you about is our sponsors, we have decided to take affiliate sponsors this year to finance the things we have lacking on the site. Our site currently lacks mobile support; therefore, every single penny we make from these sponsors will be destined to a Mobile App that can mirror the functionality we have on our forum. We have set ourselves an 8 month deadline to achieve this. So please, whenever you consider making a purchase either on coins or any other gaming products use our affiliate links so we can get a commission from your sale, we are always fighting these providers harder so we can bring you great discounts on their products and services.

    And last but not least, the site will be constantly upgraded. Just because we released them, doesn't mean we won't keep working on them. Everything can be improved upon. And we require your feedback for it. Thanks!
