First we accidentally blew it up… but the site has been updated! Here’s what has changed:
The About Us page in Help & Info now has a list of active members who have their own personal trophies! In conjunction, the article on getting your own personal trophy has been updated with new requirements.
You can now preview your storygame in one click from the advanced editor by clicking ‘Preview’ which is next to Save & Exit.
When you click ‘publish’ on a game, you can see the game’s word count in the same fashion that you can see the link and page count. Itching to see the word count of your published games, but don’t want to unpublish them? I’ll look to make that possible in a subsequent update.
Users automatically receive points for having a comment featured, and the storygame that the comment was on will appear in your point history.
There is a link to the minimum site standards both in the ‘create new game’ wizard and the ‘publish game’ wizard.
The warning about creating an advanced game instead of a basic game has been removed, to encourage users to use the advanced editor. The basic editor will likely be made the non-default in a subsequent update.
The sneak preview description has been updated in the game properties page, for transparency.
BerkaZerka now has his own personal trophy.
There is now a 5000 point trophy.
There is now a Community Contributor trophy to reward users who have rewarded the community with incredible contributions and were never reimbursed in points.
Users with more than 5000 points now have their own custom titles. Once chosen, a custom title can only be changed every 1000 points.
Scripting and some CSS is no longer allowed on user profiles.
The Forum Games forum has been replaced by the Creative Corner
You will no longer be able to see the true point score of infinite point users by changing capitalization in the address bar.
Typos were fixed in a number of different locations.
I’d like to take this moment to ask people to really be clear in the Bugs & Problems section. Please give me as much information as possible, so that I have a chance to fix your problem. I’m sure I will have created some bugs in the course of building these changes!
The site looks great, nice going 3J!
Congrats on the trophy BZ.
EDIT: Also, I never even knew about #14. Huh.
When I tried getting to the site, it wouldn't let me. I was scared that CYS was gone forever! :(
Congrats, Berka ^-^
The Update is out! Thank the Mods! Thanks for continuing to love the site, 3J. I hope for many moe great features to be added.
Um, may I ask what the purpose of the "Order" on that box on the profile pages is for?
There's Sage, Marauder, Architect, Warden... Hmm...
Great job with these updates JJJ. Was worried about the site for a few minutes there. lol.
Congratulations to Berka and 3J, and all the others who got the new trophies ^_^
When will the Trophy Guide be updated? :)
Maybe not for awhile -- sorry.
Ah. Don't apologize o-o
You did a great job with all the updates, and its more of a "I want to see Berka's trophy thing" anyways XD
Just look at my profile :)
It's a mustache! I was betting on it being a hammer xD
Congrats on your trophy!
The community trophy looks sick as hell. The only thing is that it doesn't include a description of what it is about along with the other trophies when you click on it. Also, what is the "order" box on the profiles now?
They do have a description when you hover over them, much like the personal trophies.
What's the order thing on profiles?
I think it might be part of a game of sorts?
So far I've found 4 different order titles. Warden, Sage, Marauders, and Architects. It seems randomized who gets what.
LONG LIVE THE MARAUDERS!!!
FUCK YES BROTHA!!!
This site will be more divided than america over the last year...
May I suggest you take this pledge? You know for unity purposes?
Just post it on your profile page, pal. Make it official.
He means the first part, where you pledge your life and loyalty to him.
Ah, okay. No biggie then.
Up 'til it says temporaryaccount.
Too late, Star. He's one of us now.
We'll call ourselves the Sage Brothers. :)
I like that name xD
We'll be unstoppable, as soon as we figure out what the hell it means XD.
Still curious about this whole order thing.
A much needed update, but when does Will get his trophy? :)
The next update :)
I'm curious, will it be a smiley face?
I'll leave that as a surprise.
Great work, JJJ! So glad to have all these new features!
What the flippity floppity is an order?
Architect master race my friend.
Sages are best :)
Which class is best? Sages, right?
This is war, Ford.
No, it's marauders
This is Architechts VS Sages. The marauders are gettin into it now? xD
Nah, it's wardens. (WHY ON EARTH DOES IT SEEM LIKE I'M THE ONLY WARDEN HERE SOMEONE EXPLAIN ?!?!?!)
I'm a warden, Bucky's a warden.
I to am a warden
Yay! Secret Warden High Five ^-^ (Whatever that may be.)
We should totally plan something evil to take down these other orders because we're really outnumbered
I've found 7 of us.
Good Work! Now, when do we start our uprising
I mean he is a part of the Sages so...
I got you fam. War has been declared.
Congrats to Berka for finally getting his well deserved trophy and to JJJ for the amazing trophy!
Wow I love being in the class of the sages even more now xD
Hail Sages Forever. The Motherland has officially called upon me to activate a rebellion.....one to rid the world of the filthy architects. For years the architects have walked among us, and we've called their people our own! Blasphemy! I have been given a prophetic vision of me, along my brethren, marching across the dunes of the Lounge to face our enemies. I am Prophet Jarius, and I have come to free my people from your dark ways! Today I will mark the beginning of the architect Purge!
"A piece of writing is like a piece of magic. You create something out of nothing." - Susanna Clarke Prophet Jarius, Sage Chant
I think marauders are basically team instinct
10 points to Ford.
This is bullshit, I'm clearly a maurauder, I refuse your attempt to label me
It's ok, you're allowed to be a minority.
a person responsible for the supervision of a particular place or thing or for ensuring that regulations associated with it are obeyed.
Geez, I sound a lot like a goody two-shoes already. BOW DOWN TO ME CHILDREN, YOU WILL LIVE BY MY RULES FROM NOW ON MWAHAHAHAHA
Thanks for the update 3J. And, you know, for not burning the site to the ground in the process. I also see you've implemented the 'divide and conquer' approach to community moderation by pitting the site members against each other.
...Armadillo food you say?
long live architects
Excellent job nuking the cancerous and improving this site, 3J! Heh, now I'm eagerly eyeing that 5,000-point title.
Damn that was quick work! Congratulations and godspeed in your endeavour!
Also, I wonder what 3 Jay's gonna do with the weird order thing.
I wish we got to choose. That way it's more fun and dramatic.
3J, unless there's actually a point to this whole Order thing, can my slaves be transferred to the Marauder side of things? I don't need class distinctions getting in the way of my slave empire and it'd be easier to keep things homogenous.
@Mayana Join me and I'll give you an advanced position so you can manage them.
Nuuu!!! Dooooooonntttt dooooo iiiiiit!!!! D:
I, for one, completly objectively agree that the requirements should be set to 1/3...
