This announcement is to tell you about a few of the new features and fixes which have been done since the beginning of the year in case you haven't seen them all in action yet.
1) Fixed the search feature at the top of the website pages. It was using the old style which no longer worked properly when I upgraded the search functions late last year. It kept returning no results for keywords.
2) Added members online section. Now when a member signs in, they will be displayed in the online box so that others can see them. They will remain displayed for as long as 20 minutes without inactivity before they are dropped.
3) Little biography screens... now you can click members online or the newest member to see a little information about the person. This is not that extensive yet and picture loading is not built in at the moment, but those upgrades are coming soon.
4) Fixed and streamlined submission process. Now when you submit a project, it can be reviewed and submitted much faster by admins/mods and posted instantaneously. This will get your projects up faster than ever.
5) Fixed quite a few dead links in the archives referring primarily to earlier addons/scriptlets/customidents which had been catalogued prior to our new numbering system. This caused duplicate records for two different versions of a file.
6) Added a favicon for your bookmarking
7) Fixed a small loading problem on the main page which was slowing the site. The host had enabled load balancing technology which was incompatible with some of the includes on the site. This has been fixed and should load very quick now.
That is all of them for now. We will continue the upgrading throughout the following weeks as we strive to make this site more inline with user expectations. Please bare with us as we make these transitions. Thanks again to all of those scripters who have supported us. We appreciate your hard work.
