    Hello everyone,

    It's been a while since the last update, so here's a change log of some of the latest additions to the site over the last couple of months


    This month we hit over 500 members, 500 threads and 5,000 posts. Thanks to everyone joining in on the discussion in the community!


    Evolve World Cup 2017
    Evolve released the logo for the 2017 world cup. Check it out in the EWC forum:

    Evolve Word Cup (EWC)

    Get customising and post your national EWC logo creations in the logo thread

    EWC 2017 - Post your customised Evolve World Cup 2017 logos in here!

    For those of you without access to any image editing software, I've embedded a basic image editor and a more advanced image editor in the site so you can get in on the image editing action and get your creative juices flowing from your web browser.


    New Forums
    You can find a new graphics forum for getting help with creating custom avatars, cover profile images, EWC logos or any other graphics

    I've added a new build log forum in the DIY boards section, so if any of you are working on a custom build project you can keep a log there to share your progress.

    New Guides
    If you haven't checked it out recently, the guides forum has started to get populated with a great selection of detailed guides complete with photos and videos of how to carry out all sorts of tips, tricks, maintenance on mods on the Evolve boards, be sure have a look. If you've got an idea for one, we'd love to see it!

    Member Map

    The member map has over 500 riders on it now. It might be worth have a look to see if there's any new eboarders in your area since the last time you checked.

    Push Notifications to Your Phone or Browser
    I've now enabled both Pushover and Pushbullet notification systems on the forum, so you can subscribe to either to get phone and/or browser notifications.

    To activate either, you need to register on either Pushover.net or Pushbullet.com, download the app to your phone, then associated your forum account with the service on your external accounts profile page from your browser on a desktop.


    Pushover costs about $5 for the app, and I highly recommend it as you you get more flexibility about what notifications are sent to your phone. Instructions on how to set it up can be found here.

    Pushbullet is free, but I've found it not as polished.

    Give either a go and let me know how they work for you (I do not recommend using both at once, disassociate one before trying the other).

    If you'd like to suggest any new ones, let me know here.
