A Happy 4th of July to those in the USA! We hope everyone is (hopefully) enjoying the day off, getting some gaming in and most importantly eating lots of good food!
We've been busy at work adding some new features and fixing bugs so hopefully everyone's had a bit smoother of an experience over the past couple weeks. Today we added emoji support into the site!
Now you can use all those awesome little emoji within:
- Your user bio
- Comments on your profile and your friends profiles
- Comments on game profiles
- Comments on news articles (like this one!)
- Comments on game reviews
- Your forum posts
- Chat messages
If there's any place we forgot to allow emoji's and you think we should, let us know!
So how do you use these awesome emoji's?! Well it's easy, you can reference this website as a cheat sheet! We've already got some of our favorite ones memorized!
We've also added the ability to resend account activation emails. Didn't get yours,? Just email us at email@example.com and we'll send another activation email your way!
Other Bug Fixes: - Fixed a bug on game profiles where it wouldn't show the correct usernames. - Updated logic behind start and finish times for games on your list. - Fixed an issue with screen locking not working properly. - Fixed a bug preventing user pics from being uploaded. - Fixed an issue with checking the status of a game in your list when editing the list entry. - Fixed issue in which users could sign up with duplicate usernames and email address. - Fixed styling issue for friends boxes on profile pages. - Fixed the link to add a game to your list directly from search results page. - Fixed issue with support forums (it wasn't allowing you to select the resolved/un-resolved from drop-down menu). - Added more error traps in so you know what happened during an error. - Added a search form to the forums. - Did a massive code cleanup.
Needless to say we've been pretty busy during this milestone. At present we have about 3 more issues we want to close to consider the milestone complete. Once it is finished we'll be working on a feature milestone which means we should see a bunch more cool things happening!
To all you awesome gamers, thank you for being apart of the community and helping us grow. Have a fantastic Friday and wonderful 4th of July!
