      Try the new NGC Journals!   03/22/2017

      NGC has launched a new and improved NGC Journals! Available on NGCcoin.com, the new NGC Journals improves upon the popular platform to write blogs and discuss them with other members. The new NGC Journals has an improved design that makes it significantly easier to post and read journals from any device, including smartphones and tablets. Adding images has been made much simpler, and the NGC Journals now give users the ability to create polls and "like" other entries. A popular feature of the old NGC Journals was the ability to open an entry to comments from other users. This feature has been retained and enhanced — users can now comment on the same page as the original Journal entry, creating a seamless experience. Best of all, the same login can be used to post Journals, make comments and access the other features of the NGC website. Old NGC Journals entries will be migrated to the new NGC Journals soon. In the meantime, users can make posts to the new NGC Journals. To get started, create a Journal and make an entry. Unlike the old NGC Journals, you create a single Journal and then add new entries to it. Your Journal can be customized with a cover photo, and you can choose to make it available to all users or only to the users that you select. You can also choose to receive notifications whenever people comment on one of your entries. Scroll below for helpful tips on using the new NGC Journals or go to the new NGC Journals now >   Instructions / Tips To get started, you must first create your Journal and then you can add entries to that Journal. Choose Journals from the Browse menu if you are not already on the Journals page

        Click Create a Journal

        Name your journal, add a description, add a photo, and choose if you want all users to see your journal or if you would like it available to a specific audience only. Click Continue to move on to the next step where you can add you first entry!

        Click Add Journal Entry to add a post to your journal

        Commenting on another user's Journal is easy. After selecting a journal to read, scroll to the bottom of the page where you will find the field where you may enter your comments and see the comments others have posted.

NGC Theme available while we wait

Hi all,

You may have noticed that on the NGC and PMG forums we have installed the NGC theme to make the place look a little more like home.

You can also go to the very bottom of the page on the lower left and find a "Themes" menu item that will allow you to change your overall theme to NGC across the site rather than JUST in the NGC / PMG specific forums.

It's still not perfect, as there are some things not controlled by the theme (like the menus at the top) that have to remain CGC oriented, AND of course, the URL is still CGC right now - but it's closer.

We are actively working to get us all moved to the real domain name and instance, and I just want to say again that we thank all of you for your patience during the transition. I know it can be disorienting, but we really think it will be worth the hassle once everything settles out. Again, thank you.

Hello everyone,

Now that we've split NGC out, the only theme available here is the NGC theme. With only one theme currently enabled, I don't think that the theme menu shows up.

HOWEVER, we've been working on some updated themes on the CGC site and rapidly evolving them based on the feedback from their higher traffic. As we finalize all the adjustments, we'll be making a couple of flavors of those themes available here once they have been adjusted to look right for NGC.

We'll post a notice as that happens so that you can all check them out. Key things that are changing in those themes:

  1. Some other colors that help break up the bright white of this starting theme
  2. A denser list of threads on forum pages
  3. Clearer separation of one thread from the next, one post from the next, and the difference between a quote and the main body of a new psot
  4. A variety of other smaller tweaks
