We'll be rolling out some cool upgrades on November 3 that we want to tell everybody about.
First off, all members will be getting new, full-page member profiles that allow you to enter much more information than the current profiles. Your new profile will also include your own personal inbox where you can exchange private messages with other members and manage friend requests. Profiles will be searchable (you can opt out), so you can find other members that share your interests.
DelphiPlus members will get supercharged profiles that will include photo albums and blog-like personal journals. They'll be able to customize their profiles by re-arranging the content on the page and adding Web widgets like YouTube videos, music players, countdown calendars, and more. We'll be replacing our existing Web storage option with a new file store system that's integrated with your new profile (don't worry, we'll move all your files over and existing URLs will continue to work). As a bonus, DelphiPlus members will get 100mb storage space. That's 20 times what we offer now. We'll also be replacing the existing email system with an email forwarding service integrated into your profile.
In addition, DelphiPlus members will be able to create new Premium Forums for free. And they'll stay Premium as long as the DelphiPlus membership is active. No more set-up fees!
But wait, there's more...
We're also rolling out a new, lower priced subscription plan: DelphiExtra. We've mentioned DelphiExtra before, but now it's here! DelphiExtra will cost only $19.95 per year and will include ad-free forum browsing, message search through the past year, spell checking, signature storage, 5mb message attachment storage, and more.
We know you'll have lots of questions, so we'll be posting additional announcements and FAQs in the coming days. Delphi Forums staff will also be here in the forums as always to answer your questions.
