v20190006 Update

2 months ago

Hi all,

Very small update here. I saw @Bill_Ingersoll 's post in the B&P forum and decided to rush out an hour of coding and here we are:

  1. The RTE plugins (fonts, word count, colors, etc.) should now work everywhere. You may need a hard refresh/cache clear to see this.
  2. The home page categories are now centered and have better background colors.
  3. The publish storygame screen warns explicitly that demos are not allowed.
  4. The storygame creation article link (in the creation flow) points to an actual published article.
  5. The storygame-in-need category ranks stories with a rating >=5 above stories with worse ratings.
  6. It now takes only 50 ratings to get a storygame ranked.
  7. @AzBaz gets his well-deserved and long-awaited contest trophy.
  8. Articles are now worth 50 points (and this is applied retroactively).
  9. Articles are now actually worth 10 commendations (and this is applied retroactively).

Cheers,
3J

Note: this was done very quickly so it's possible that we'll run into bugs. Some of the changes will require the overnight procs to run.

I looked quickly at the storygame editor, and indeed the font/size options are now available for individual pages. Thanks.

Can't wait for my 2 stories with 50 ratings to be ranked. Also, I am now just a bit off from 1k points thanks to the retroactive bump in article points. Thank you 3J, very cool.

Which two stories? I can take a look locally and see approximately where they ended up... or you can wait until tomorrow :)

So close!

Nah, nah, I'll wait till tomorrow. Or rather, four more minutes because it's almost midnight EST, lol. And thanks to the featured comment, it's just 16 more off! Time to go on a ratings binge.

I think it runs at 4AM EST if my memory serves me right.

Huh, could've swore I remember it goes through at midnight EST. Oh well, I can wait that long.

Good idea @Bill_Ingersoll

Thanks. That listing is suddenly so much more interesting.

Thank you! These updates sound good; I have to agree with a cricket, Bill’s idea will really help out stories worth reading.

Looks like the procs didn’t run overnight. I’ll need to talk to Alex — i think there’s something wrong with the server deploy process.

THANK YOU

#5 and #6 are pretty nice too.

Fuck demos. I hope it helps.

Why do I get the feeling the kind of people who publish demos are also the kind who won’t read the warning?

Thanks 3J!

Glad alexp put his trust in you; each of these updates brings a fresh new vigor to the site ^v^
