    Welcome back everyone! Virtually every portion of PSO-World has received an upgrade as part of the site's 15th anniversary. Here are some of the highlights:

    Updated Forum Software
    The forum software has been upgraded to the latest version of vBulletin 4. The upgraded forum software offers several bug fixes, security improvements, updates to existing features, new features, and better compatibility with the latest generation of web browsers.

    Social Groups Overhaul
    Social Groups (AKA Groups) has received several updates. To access the groups area, click on the "Groups" link on the secondary navigation bar of the forum index. That will present you with a GUI interface to your groups, the most recently updated groups, and newly created groups. As for individual groups, instead of having what is essentially one long thread, Social Groups will behave more like individual forums. Members will be able to create new group threads and post pictures. Group leaders will have the ability to moderate these threads.

    New Search Features
    This might seem like a mundane detail, but PSO-World has a new search interface that provides faster and better search results. You will now finally have the ability to search your private messages!

    Activity Stream
    You can access the "Activity Stream" by clicking on "What's New" on the navigation bar. The Activity Stream offers a new way to keep track of the latest forum content including group discussion, news articles, forum posts, and several other content types. The Activity Stream offers several secondary navigation bar links if you want to browse a specific type of content.

PSOW???10?? PSO-World to Increase News Accuracy As lead news writer, it is my job to make sure that any information coming from Japan regarding Phantasy Star is presented without modification. Thus we will begin the process of only reporting updates in their original language. As it turns out, most updates are Japanese anyway. Using the advanced technology of Google Translate, I have been able to begin restoring news items to their original form. From whence they came as it were. For consistency purposes, I have also started converting the English news items. This should be of benefit to the understated Japanese population on the Xbox 360 version of PSU. I hope that everyone will be able to enjoy this new direction in which we will promptly be able to re-communicate exciting news without worrying about translation errors! PSOW: into the next decade

    Back in January of 2001, PSO-World was created with the vision that it would not only serve the entire Phantasy Star community, but be run by the community as well. Ten years later, the site is still here doing what it was meant to do from the day its virtual doors were first opened, thanks to the hard work and dedication of many different people who have helped carry the torch over the last decade. A lot of things can happen over ten years. People come and go, web sites appear and disappear, and a TON of games get released. We've been fortunate enough to see many Phantasy Star games over the last ten years, and even more fortunate that PSO-World and its outstanding community have been here for the entire ride.



    With this milestone behind us, we enter a new era for PSO-World and its community. We have a lot to look forward to in the future of Phantasy Star and the site. Phantasy Star Online 2 is on the horizon and a steady stream of other titles has given us plenty to work on. It's time for us to take things to the next level once again, to better serve the fans that have continued to support us for all of these years. With that said, 2011 will not only mark the 10th anniversary of PSO-World's existence, but also an evolution of the site as you know it! It is going to be a great year, and we'll be looking for more people who want to be a part of it. For the rest of the details, though, you'll just have wait and see!


    On behalf of PSO-World, thank you to all of the visitors, contributors, members, staffers, and everyone else who has supported the site in one way or another over the last ten years. Your patronage is what kept this site alive for this long and what will keep it going into the foreseeable future. We'll be celebrating this momentous occasion all year, so stay tuned for some announcements regarding contests, prizes, and more!
