The time for us to upgrade to LiveLeak v2.0 is now very close at hand, in the coming days, so I thought it would be cool to let you know a little more about it as we get ready for the switch over. First of all you'll notice it doesn't look the same. It's more a refresh than a completely new design but it might take you a little while to find your way around. Here’s the most important part:
If you don't want to change the way you use LiveLeak then you don't have to!
You can carry on with the standard user channel watching and commenting as you please. You aren’t forced to do anything differently. If you want to do things differently you certainly can. Here are just a few features of the launch version of 2.0. We consider this to be the “core” site and from here we will continue to develop and release modules to expand the capabilities of LiveLeak and how you use it.
1) Embed YouTube videos as a new media post. You won't get points but if you find something you just want to share then go right ahead. We'll be adding more sites as we go giving you the opportunity to use LL as a media hub.
2) Customisable channels. Using a modular system you can add features to your own channel, arrange them however you please using a drag and drop system as well as adding backgrounds and changing the fonts.
3) Your media, your choice. Using the playlist and picked media modules you can have any media you like showing on any of your channels. Want to create your own version of LL with your own picked media? Go right ahead. Naturally you can share the URL of your channels wherever you wish.
4) Improved messaging system. A folder system gives you more control over your messages and sorts them into categories such as messages from users, system messages, and more.
5) Log in from Facebook or Twitter and link those accounts to your “root” account if you already have one (or register one through LiveLeak).
6) Create new channels as you need them. Groups are no longer with us but you can create channels suiting your interests. Again these are linked to your “root” account.
In the coming months we are going to release modules after development and testing so make sure you let us know what you would like to see on LiveLeak.
We really hope you guys dig it as much as we do. And remember, this is just the beginning.
