Today, we performed an update on the FINAL FANTASY XI Linkshell Community Beta Version, implementing several system refinements, including improvements to the login screen, adding the ability to link URLs, and extending the length of time login information is saved.

The following is a list of changes that were made:

1. Adding the ability to link URLs
The various pages within a linkshell community can now be linked directly from other pages. Using this feature, you can point your friends directly to your linkshell, link to events on the World Portal, collaborate with your friends, and use URLs in a variety of other useful situations.

2. Session Expiration Time Extended
For security reasons, linkshell community login sessions are set to automatically expire after a specific period of inactivity. Over the past months we have received a number of comments on the length of these sessions, and have been hard at work extending the login period.

3. Changes to the Login Screen
The new Login screen now makes logging in easier for players participating in multiple communities. Now by simply selecting the desired "community account," players will directly jump to the top page of the community in which they are participating. Also, forms for starting or joining a new community are now all found on a separate page.

*Accounts are now referred to as "community accounts."

4. The Addition of the "Member Profile Editor" to Login Status

5. Changes to the Community Rankings
All Linkshell objectives can now be found on the Community Rankings within the World Portal.

6. The Correction of Other Minor Issues

'Bout bloody time. Of course, SE is updating their LS site much more often than MY ls leader updates his site. I guess I shouldn't complain. orz

To be honest it still doesn't impress me all that much.

I mean it would be nice to have something a little more original and I think thats what SE is trying to accomplish, but most Linkshells just use independent forums, theres a lot more freedom and you can moderate your own members.

I think it has the potential to be a really useful tool, however no one really utilizes it yet.

Adding in a function to be able to chat in game with linkshell from the linkshell community site would be good
