Hey gang,

We did some big updates to comicvine and giantbomb today, and instead of spamming my twitter I decided just to start posting a change log here.

No Caption Provided

So with that being said, here is what changed today:

BIG DEALS

  • Comicvine now has series and episodes in their wiki, you can go over there and start adding all your favorite comic related tv shows.
  • Animated Gifs now work through our uploader, so you guys can stop embedding the images directly and making me cry.

BLUE LIGHT SPECIALS

  • Indents in the WYSIWYG are supported better now. Before if you edited something with indents it would be cleaned out when you went to edit it, no longer. (I'm not even sure indents on paragraphs was supposed to be supported in the first place, so woooo)
  • The image uploader button on the profile page should now always work
  • Non gallery pages with greater than 300 images will work in the image viewer again (I'm looking at you comicvine)
  • If you upload images by url on your gallery page, they will now append correctly to the gallery without a refresh
  • A few weird 404s (like after you sign up for a subscription) were fixed
  • When a premium chat is running and you are not premium the page now says something appropriate, rather than lying to you and saying the chat is not running.
  • The moderation queue page was fixed to look good.

EDIT:

Almost forgot. We've identified the problem with double posting/forum slow down and have a solution. We're still testing out the solution to see if its a permanent fix, but for now the forum posts should be faster.

2 things. when I add a comment here, the add-a-new-comment box goes away. It appends my comment to the list, but doesn't let me add another or see comments between my viewing the page and my adding a comment (live comment updating) :)

I don't think I've really seen any site other than Facebook do that.

@dhechler: Thats intentional, we don't want people to just be having 3 or 4 posts in a row (or at least try to make it harder to do it)

@mattyftm: God I hope so.

@eccentrix: It would be nice though since it adds my comment as if it is the latest, but really there could have been 10 posted since i read the article. Just a thought.

It begins.

This is probably the most sleekest system when it comes to this kind of stuff, easy on the eyes and super functional~ Keep up the great work!

@ilikepopcans: All the GIFS will be for naught if you cannot use an image stabilize filter before busting out this Cloverfield looking stuff. Jeff looks like he's not giving two rips about the seismic event going on there.

I'm afraid this doesn't seem to be properly fixed. Yes, they now display properly, but if you try to tag them or make them default image you just end up getting a big red error bar up top. Something about the image not existing or some such. Still need to reload the page to do anything with them.
