This question may sound a silly question, but I would like to know what your favorite survival horror game is.

I know most of you may say the original Resident Evil (1996) game is the best survival horror game ever, but I know some of you may think differently. Sure, the term "survival horror" was first used for the original Japanese release of Resident Evil in 1996, which was influenced by earlier games with a horror theme such as 1989's Sweet Home and 1992's Alone in the Dark.


Now back to my question: What is your favorite survival horror game?

The blue verified badge on Resident Evil Fanboy lets people know that an account of public interest is authentic. Verified badges help people more easily find the public figures, celebrities and brands they want to follow.

A verified badge is a check that appears next to a username in search results and on the profile. It means Resident Evil Fanboy has confirmed that an account is the official presence of the public figure, celebrity or global brand it represents.

To request a verified badge, you must be a public figure, celebrity or brand and meet specific account and eligibility requirements.

A verified badge does not imply an endorsement by Resident Evil Fanboy.

When you share forum topics or forum posts on social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter will use our default social share image or alternate social share image which doesn’t work well as representation of specific forum discussions.

Forum Topic Attachment

We have implemented a new feature which lets you use the first image uploaded as an attachment in a topic and set it as Open Graph image ("og:image"), so social media websites such as Facebook, Twitter, and Google+ can use it as a thumbnail image to represent the link. 

This feature only adds the attachment image to the source code so that social media services can pick it up. Please note that there is no guarantee that the attachment will not instantly show up as social media websites do not scrape content automatically. 

Facebook Sharing Debugger

Facebook caches the images and loads them asynchronously which means that when you share an URL for the first time, the image might not show instantly. If you want to test what Facebook is picking up, go to https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/sharing/ and re-scrape the URL.


If you don’t see an image for your topic URL or it is an outdated one, click “Scrape again” until it displays correct image.

Tagging and prefixing content is a quick and easy way to categorize and highlight the content within our site. Users can then use these to filter by similar tags or prefixes quickly.

Tagging

Tagging when creating content can be done by entering comma separated values into the tag box. Once you have done this you can choose one of these items to be a title prefix should you wish to do so, as seen below.


Once you add your tags, they can be seen within the topic list or indeed on the item of the content itself. Clicking on any of these will search for other material with the same tag or prefix. You are required to input a minimum of three tags which will help with content discovery.

I hope you find this article helpful!
