New Release /linkaccount
Hi everyone, a new command has been introduced to PlanetBeacon.

Questions will be answered below:

Q. What does this do?
A. This feature currently will only display your Minecraft username/head beside all of your posts. In the future we plan to provide much more forum integration, and this will be necessary to do that.

Q. What do I need to do?
A. First off, you must have a forum account. Go to our Minecraft server and type /linkaccount. In chat you will see a button to click. Once you click the button it should open a URL. Click confirm on our website and you're done!

Q. Why should I do this?
Having your Minecraft username linked to your forum account will help others identify who you are. It will also ensure you are the first to access new forum integration features!
