Hey guys, thanks for the podcast :)

Off-topic question. How's the function of the "Upcoming" section on the frontpage. It happens quite a lot that a show appears, disappears and reappears. Always thought it was just the planing behind the scenes unfolding - and it properly is. Now, I might be wrong. But thought I saw the GBC being announced yesterday and gone today. Seeing as it is a returning feature is there some jank going on or is it planing?

(PS. Not related. Is it possible to see a few screenshots of how the UI looks for the crew when they upload video/punch in segment information etc?)

I think it would be interesting to track the amount of "confirmed tags contributed" per user and display it somewhere on the user page to encourage people to tag legitimately and be able to show off their contribution.

Ok, two things. On the priority thing. F that guy. I work in Software dev (I am a QA) and you guys do a great job of getting things done on a massive scale for a small dev group and still moving out good new features. Funny thing my second question was on your QA but you answered that on while I was listening later.

It's kinda ironic how the UI is broken on a Devcast

@wcarle you guys are talking about SQL queries and ORM, but didn't you guys say at some point that you have ElasticSearch for the searches? Or did I dream that?

@wcarle related to the CI/CD and branching...do you guys have everything in the same core codebase for all the sites? Or is it more separated into libraries? Tagging those and releasing separately for all sites might work

As a web app developer myself I'd just like to say that I would 100% listen to a podcast where @wcarle talks about CDN buckets and the 7 meetings he had that day.

I just got to listen to this one. It's great to hear QLCrew mentioned so many times. I'm glad my work has been an inspiration for you guys. It's kind of crazy to look at the Advanced Search, it looks a bit familiar. ;)

@wcarle and the team, keep up the great work and keep breaking and changing stuff as it makes me fix things on the site and I always learn something new.

Just want to second this, it might feel boring and the spice is the passion projects, but for anyone outside this is also really spicy to listen to :)

@wcarle Will there be an option to search by using the NOT keyword?
I think this would be super useful.
And keep up the great work!
