Hey everyone, I mentioned I was going to finish a few updates in Fall. It was delayed due to vicious budget cuts (and you can't prove otherwise). I'll keep updating this thread as I push code.


Future updates
  • Unicode support in storygames
  • Some more tiny requests I already did and need to update to the site
Finished updates
  • Passwords are now case-sensitive (5/9/22)
  • Games now get 200 points instead of 100 for a category feature (10/18/22)
  • Usernames in storygame search now link to the account (10/18/22)
  • Forum handles unicode (only new posts) not including storygames, My Stuff, or articles yet (10/18/22)
  • Fix for page crash due to mods trying to commend an already-commended post (10/18/22)
  • ninjapitka's trophy was added by Killa (10/18/22)

  • Passwords will be case-sensitive (5/8/22 around midnight PDT)

They weren't already? Whose idea was that lol. Not that I think too many people will be interested in hacking somebody's account on here...except maybe one of the "bigger" names.

Switching the update until tomorrow so Alexp can be there since it's the first time we're deploying this way. Updated the title to be more attention-grabbing in the meantime, to reduce people missing the message

I think the password resets are handled by email, so we shouldn't have to be involved at all. If someone decided to associate their account with [email protected], that sounds like a personal problem.

And next update is out. Here's the changelog:
  • Makes usernames in the game search link to the user profile, for navigation and/or banning for a spam game
  • Changed all places in the forum (except usernames) to handle unicode entry and display.
  • Tweaked commendation page text to be less scolding
  • Try to avoid a page crash due to double-commending that occurs if a mod opens a page, another mod commends, and then the first tries to
  • games get 200 points for being featured instead of 100, because it's increasingly hard and rare
  • @ninjapitka now has his trophy

Wow, that was quick. I didn't even notice the site being down at all.

Yeah, Alex did a lot of work in the last year to get autodeployment working. The whole upgrade process literally only took 44 seconds.

> Tweaked commendation page text to be less scolding

Can you clarify?

> Changed all places in the forum (except usernames) to handle unicode entry and display.

😀

Still can't access some storygames directly from the commendation page though. For example "fake it 'till you make it"

>Can you clarify?
It's only for admins when they commend stuff. You don't see that page normally

>Still can't access some storygames directly from the commendation page
It's mostly complete for forums, not so much for things under My Stuff or for storygame-related things. There are partial changes on that, too, which is where I left off earlier.


Also, thanks Killa for doing the code for Ninja's trophy, and moving things along with the changes I had incubating in master branch for a while.

The ghost of JJJ would stand over our shoulder and waggle his finger at us while squinting suspiciously any time we'd commend a post, now he doesn't anymore.
