Thanks for your patience today throughout the scheduled downtime while we updated our site to version Beta 2.0. There are loads of new features and some of them require some tweaking in a live environment.
We’re pleased to confirm that the following are now all deployed:
- design refresh which will improve usability and look prettier
- OpenID using Clickpass Connect so that you can sign in using existing logins from other applications
- revised left column with expanding lists including 5 latest missions, this month’s top missioners, 5 latest blog posts, top 5 crazy missions, current popular categories and (chat) groups you might like
- ability to rate missions
- browse through newbie missioners using CoolIris – see their avatar images and click through to their profile page
- RSS feed so you can track responses to individual missions real time (depending on your browser you should see it in the browser’s address bar)
The snagging list as it stands looks something like this:
- some cross-browser layout bugs
- highly sophisticated chat functionality is not yet fully deployed
- some issues with the “is online now” icon
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you find anything else.
Thanks again for your patience
UPDATE 7.45 10th Decemeber
Some IE users have noticed a continual page refresh, which hampers their use of the site. We’ve tracked down where the problem is, and applied a temporary patch. However, it will affect whether or not you can “pop-out ” the chat window. Hopefully, we’ll be able to fix it before the end of the day.
