Soapdom Social Network

You can write and manage blogs, upload photos, videos, build a friends list, and so much more, like adding videos to your wall posts, and comment on friends' wall posts.

Don't forget to search the network for QueenRuler and add me to your friends list! :o) For more info, see this Help article on how to use the Soapdom Social Network.
This is one of my favorite features. The default color for Soapdom is this cool shade of pink. But if your look in the drop down where you log in or register, you will see four small boxes. Click on the blue box and the site turns blue! Click on the orange box and the site turns orange. Click on the green box and --- say it with me soap fans --- the site turns green. Click pink and you are back to where you started! Feeling like it's an "orange" day? Just click the orange button!
Chat and Forums
As usual, we still have our chat rooms -- one for each soap, an auditorium, and an editors chat. And our message boards. Come share your thoughts with everyone. See this Help article on how to use the Soapdom Message Boards.
As in v3, you can comment on every article throughout the site. All your comments will be listed in your member area's "comment section."
The more you comment, blog, add photos, videos, etc to the site, the more points you'll get. The more points you get, the more of a soap opera expert you become. Top point holders will be entered into contests at the various intervals throughout the year and you can win some very hot prizes. More info on this to come. Top point holders will also be featured on every page of the Soapdom site in the bottom left of every page. For more info on the Soapdom Points system, see this Help article.
Speaking of contests, we'll have more of them. There will be polls, photo galleries, games, and more.
Yup. We intend to offer a featured video a few times a week. If it's not one we've shot and produced ourselves, it will be one from YouTube or one from your blogs. If you've got a video to upload it could be featured throughout the site. Stay tuned for more on this way cool new feature.
Finally, finally, finally we will get our Soapdom store off the ground. Coming soon, stay tuned.
