  • 10/29/2011: Fixed the bug in the Recruiter quest (hopefully), and the count of recruiter points should be correct now.
  • 10/13/2011: I haven’t been very good at keeping this page up-to-date. Sorry. The latest news if of course the launch of the virtual market.
  • 9/12/2011: Reviews and game tips can be filtered by gamer type and sorted by most recent and most helpful. When logged out, the default is to sort by most helpful.
  • 9/10/2011: Experimenting with game ratings based on gamer type
  • 9/3/2011: Can now edit your reviews and game tips.
  • 8/29/2011: Added [delete] link for Game Tips … don’t go crazy, because it costs 50 G to delete game tips.
  • 8/26/2011: Added [delete] link for News and Discussion comments to the author / profile page. Deleting reviews and tips is going to be more involved … but we’re almost there.
  • 8/25/2011: Working on improving site speed via various caching techniques. Making progress. Added pagination to reviews.
  • 8/24/2011: Updated the behavior of the {-} toggle button (Thanks, James).
  • 8/23/2011: The Gamer Reviews page is now the first place to test the sorting of reviews by grade (i.e. “most helpful”), highest, and lowest rating.
  • 8/18/2011: Updated how the review and tip ratings are displayed. Still need to roll this out to other lists. Check out the tips pages.
  • 8/18/2011: News comments are now paginated.
  • 8/17/2011: Reinstated the review and tip grading across the site. Altered the rewards for the Grading quests (see discussion).
  • 8/16/2011: Made some changes to the XP received for stuff. In general, I’m not going to list every single change. We’ll be tweaking these numbers a lot as we go through this beta.
  • 8/16/2011: Fixed that bug on the leader board page.
  • 8/16/2011: Was going to take a day off, but my wife and I played Eminent Domain and we had to log on to mark that we played it.
  • 8/16/2011: I think I fixed that Follower Quest bug, where people were saying that the count was not updating. Re-visit the Reporter quests page to check the count now. I had to reset a few people’s reporter class xp and reporter levels due to that follower loophole. I didn’t subtract gold or xp, though.
  • 8/15/2011: Felt like doing something that wasn’t just about putting out fires. So, you can check out the new Leader Boards page.
  • 8/15/2011: Due to a number of reasons, we’re discontinuing the “Prizes” feature of the site after August. We hope to bring that back in the future.
  • 8/15/2011: We’re working on a way for people to help us get more games added to the site. Keep in mind, though, that it is not our intention or goal to be encyclopedic with respect to listing every game ever made. There are other sites that do a much better job of that.
  • 8/15/2011: Fixed a loophole that allowed users to follow more people than they should have been able to. Note that the reason for limiting the number of people you follow is to make being followed more prestigious. Still working on correcting the other issues related to following.
  • 8/15/2011: “Grading” game reviews and game tips is currently only allowed from the Home page, until we can work out a way to avoid having these quests exploited. See the news post about this: Discussion: Grading
