We've been trying to make more of an effort to touch base with everyone on what we've been up to. I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying their game time. We've been plugging away at the games on our list and trying to make time to work on GitLab cases and resolve issues and add small things into the site when time allows. This go around we've done the following:
- Allow for the hashtag symbol in Battle.net usernames
- We hide the comments section and link to blog comments on blog entries which disallow comments
- We've updated the logo
- We show users forum posts in their profiles (there's a new tab now)
- Several updates to the website's CSS were made
- Updated the verbiage when there's an issue in uploading a new user picture
- You can now see people who have friended you, there's a new tab on the Friends section in user profiles
- The customer ID should now be getting properly set when making donations
- Resolved an issue with incorrect information showing in the donation section
- The site now remembers how you have the sidebar toggled (at least until you quit your web browser)
- We've changed over to Discord for chat (see more below)
- Nintendo Switch and Wii U gamertags / friend codes can now be added to your profile
- Resolved an issue with a missing
atag on one of the forum pages
- We've upgraded to reCAPTCHA v2
- We've built an entirely new email queuing system
The major code update was the rewrite of the email system. We're really hoping this new update allows for the user experience to be a lot better. This will really come into play when you're commenting on game profiles, news articles (like this one), and game reviews. We expect that once you hit the submit for your comment it'll respond and load the page a lot quicker. We'd love to get any feedback from users to see if they're seeing it load any quicker.
As noted above, we've also switched over to using Discord for our chat platform. We hope you'll come and join us! You can join here.
That about wraps it up for this month. Don't eat to much candy tomorrow!Written by jimmyb on October 30, 2017 @ 3:38 pm
Just found this site and really like it so far. It has potential. You guys need to do a better job advertising the site.
Nice share! Thank you for sharing these wonderful things. I am really like this one, very interesting!
