Hi all!

I've been working on updating the site for some time and today I cut over to the new site code.

The old classic site has been discontinued and all domains now use the new site code. This is for numerous reasons but mainly to make it faster, use less server resources and make it easier for me to update and add new features.

I'm still working on fixing a few bugs but please post in the Bug Reports forum if you find something.

Today's code update included:

1) Updated Site Settings to include options to ignore Videos (YouTube, Video messages) on forums/pager messages only and a seperate setting for Ignoring in Chat Rooms. These options turn a video into a link instead.

2) Updated Member Galleries to show member title and member title icon (if you have one), added a feature so you can order by Oldest (Default), Newest, and gallery owner.

3) Updated EmotIcon window to open larger with more columns so you're not scrolling for days due to the recent additions. Laugh

4) Added side menu to the home/portal page in Classic site version.

5) Fixed/updated various layout issues such as text next to check boxes.

Today's code update included:

1) Added new feature to the Coins page so you can now "Tip" other members your coins! You might want to keep a hold of them though as you never know what is coming around the corner to spend them on. Wink

2) Added Tip Log to the Coins page so you can see how much you have sent and received.

3) Added Tips to the "My Coins Log" and are included in the daily total.

3) Chat message and Forum message coins earned have been merged. You earn up to a total of 450 bronze coins per day (not including Tips) from either chat or forum messages.

4) Removed the chart from the Coins page. There was some layout issues with some browsers and data was not showing correctly unless you logged on to the site every day. Eventually the chart will be added back once all the issues have been fixed.

5) Coins earned on 3/29/2018 have been added to accounts that didn't receive them.

Today's update included:

1) Various minor bug fixes and a slight change to link colors on the blue and red site skins (some links weren't clear unless you put your mouse over them).

2) Updated Coins page to move various components under their own tabs (such as Coin Logs).

3) Added New Coin Store page in preparation for additional features being added where you can spend your Coins.

4) Updated how many coins you earn per post based on your membership level as follows:

1 Bronze Coin per post for Bronze members
2 Bronze Coins per post for Silver Members
3 Bronze Coins per post for Gold Members
4 Bronze Coins per post for Platinum Members

This change will take effect on 5/25/18 for posts made the previous day. This will not be back dated for posts made before 5/24/18.

5) You now earn coins on every payment made to the site. 1 Bronze Coin for every penny spent (excluding fees such as exchange rate etc.). For example, if you spend $9.95 on the site for 30 Days Platinum Membership you'll receive 9 Silver and 95 Bronze. This has been backdated to 1/1/2018 as a big thank you for those who continue to support us financially.

6) Added New Notifications feature in preparation for features still under development and will replace many (if not all) automated pager messages you currently receive from the system to your pager such as when you receive a Buddy List Request, Coins, Gift Certificates or when something on your account is about to expire.

This new feature will allow us to provide easier ways to use a Gift Certificate, approve buddies, renew your membership, and prevent some confusion with some users when they have been sent a message from "Administrator." For example, if you receive a Gift Certificate it'll give you a very easy option on how to claim it instead of having to copy and paste the code and select the correct value etc.

Today's update included:

1) Tips and Buddy List notifications now go to the new Notifications feature rather than sending you a Pager Message from Administrator.

2) You will now get a notification when somebody adds you as a "Trusted Buddy" if you have "Automatically Approve Everybody" set under My Account (Privacy Settings). Previously you were only notified if you needed to Approve or Decline the request.

3) New Purchase Options are now available via the Coin Store to spend your coins on.

You can now purchase "Premium Nicknames" for 1 Gold Coin that can contain spaces and some new special characters previously not allowed. You can only register a Nickname if you own the name without spaces (i.e. My Name can only be registered by the user with MyName).

If you're a Platinum Member you can now purchase Expansion Packs (20 slots at a time) for 1 Gold.

4) Coin Logs page has been updated to show a log of purchases made with Coins.

Today's code update included:

1) Fixed the activation code on new account emails

2) Deleted Nicknames can now be added to accounts for Paying Members only. This prevents people from just deleting their account and signing up again later with a new account using the same name (bypassing Room Bans and Ignore Lists).

3) Thousands of accounts have been deleted and you may notice some users have been removed from your Buddy and Ignore Lists based on the criteria:

Accounts are deleted due to lack of use as follows:

If you have NEVER paid for a membership your account will be automatically deleted if:

1) You didn't activate your account within one month of creating the account.
2) You haven't logged in to your account for more than 12 months (1 year).
3) You haven't logged into the account after 1 month of creating the account and the account was created more than 3 months ago (grace period).

If you HAVE paid for a membership your account will be automatically deleted if:

1) You haven't logged in to your account for more than 24 months (2 years) and your membership has expired.


Please note that during the deletion process some non-paying accounts who logged on anonymously were deleted earlier than the criteria above but as these users haven't been chatting at all in the past 30 days I will not restore the affected accounts. The bug has been fixed and moving forward the criteria above will be used.

Use it or lose it folks! We will no longer store data for people who don't use the site. At the very least log on once a year if you wish to keep your names etc. If we do create a new site next year you will get to keep your names and coins from The Pork. Wink
