ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwired - Oct 8, 2013) - OCNet visitors will soon have the ability to open a single user account for leaving comments on all casino review pages and blog posts, as well as start their very own gaming-related blog that will be fully integrated with OCNet's expanded community forum. Replacing its former Wordpress-generated blog with a private-licensed suite powered by vBulletin, OnlineCasino.net has temporarily launched a general blog covering everything from new casino promotions to gaming regulatory law updates, as well as archives from its former blog. In the future, several niche blogs will be actively administrated by OCNet, to which players can contribute unique content, or as mentioned, publish to their very own OCNet-hosted blog.
"The new design has been a long time coming," said OCNet spokesperson, Vick Marieno. "We have always been aware of the tremendous value that user-generated content offers, especially regarding the rating of online casinos. And now that internet gambling is beginning to penetrate social platforms online (as we have been predicting it would) and there is an equally high demand for user-generated content, it has become evident that now is the time to execute a complete overhaul in OCNet's interactive features and user-friendliness."
While it is clear the age of Web 2.0 is in full swing, OCNet recognizes that not all user-generated content is accurate and unbiased. "This has been a major reason why we haven't been too quick to launch our new community forum. We are taking a close look on how best to effectively integrate Web 2.0 features, while safeguarding against hackers, spammers and trolls," said Marieno.
"In the past, OCNet has moderated disputes between players and casinos, and the fact of the matter is that players are sometimes in the wrong. Whether sore from enduring a losing streak or negligent in reading terms and conditions, players will sometimes lambast a casino unfairly. The same is true for casino operators, who are often guilty of not being transparent with terms and marketing their promotions unethically. This is precisely why OCNet will have site administrators monitoring community activities and reviewing all content round the clock."
Thanks to the innovative features of vBulletin 5 Connect, users will also have the ability to launch private group forums, interact with other members and integrate their OCNet profile with major social platforms, such as Facebook and Twitter. It is community software at its best, and OCNet is proud to lead the way amongst other online gambling portals and iGaming directories.
