Rather large update here. Changes that may be of particular interest are points 6, 11, and 14. Here’s the full list of what’s changed:
Included Exemplars without commendations on order dashboards.
Removed two broken links to articles that don’t exist (storygames page and PMs page)
Added a reminder not to ever give passwords out in the PMs page.
Fixed the commended/endorsed type on order dashboards.
Fixed the bug where users with Exemplar of Avon titles don’t get bolded usernames.
Removed the checkbox under posts that says ‘Notify me when…” When you post in a thread, you will automatically be notified when someone else posts, unless you disable that option from your profile settings. You can always manually watch or unwatch a thread by using the button near the top of the thread.
Fixed the bug where creating a new article throws an error.
When you maximize or resize a page popup within the advanced editor, the height of the text box should resize with you.
If you try to publish a storygame that hasn’t existed for two days, it will tell you precisely when you’ll be able to publish it.
All new users will receive a welcome message from cysid. This message is based on Malkalack’s (and IP’s) writing.
You can now write HTML in Private Messages. I might add a RTE here at some point.
Tiny typos in Account & Settings fixed and maturity levels fixed.
Fixed HTML in profile subsections.
Changed the front page categories. The first category mimics the top games list but the second category is new. It lists the top 5 games which you haven’t rated in terms of how close they are to getting enough votes to be ranked. Any story that is already ranked will never show up there and any story that you’ve already rated will never show up there.
Added contest winner trophies for @WouldntItBeNice and @Ogre11. Congratulations! These will go out the next time the trophy script is deployed (Saturday night).
Unpublished storygames can no longer be rated
Games with fewer than 10 ratings do not display a rating at all. This is to dissuade people from voting in the same fashion that other people did. (Anchoring)
Some sidebar and profile CSS has been fixed. Shoutout to @BradinDvorak for going above and beyond on this one; he really made my life easy.
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!
First thing I did is uncheck that auto notification box.
Hopefully this post doesn't send you a notification?
Yep, seems to work. No notification.
Great stuff once again, thanks!
Did the idea of a different color for commended games on profile pages get scrapped?
Thanks 3J! It's great to see you still haven't gone completely mad through the frequent struggles with the site code.
On the contrary, I'm starting to really understand it!
No, I've not gone mad... I understand the code now... it speaks to me... it tells me to hurt people.
Have... to... burn the site down.
Can't this be done on virtually any website, and couldn't this have been done in the past here using a URL shortener?
Man, you've come a long way on this site.
Glad there's updates on some of the glitches that were bothering this site for a while.
Another amazing update!
Good work! And a special thanks to Brad! Keep up the good work, guys. :D
Berka has the bold red title? I thought nobody got any commendations yesterday
Tiebreaker is EXP points!
Thank you for all your hard work to make CYS better and better!
I definitely like having them turned on as the default. Notifications might really coincide with forum participation -- we don't have the data to say otherwise. I have it enabled, personally.
And they're sorted / not random :)
Just noticed that Recent Posts now show up as they do normally.
That's pretty cool and a neat addition.
Unless, Y'know, it was in an earlier update that I missed...
That would be #13 in this update.
I didn't really understand what "Profile Subsections" were supposed to be...
Thank you, though.
Yeah! Kill Amans Mustache is about to get ranked too :)
