Today's a big one folks! But I'm going to post it all segmented-like.
- New verbiage to test for people coming from search engines.
- Better tracking for invites for our own internal metrics.
- Group creation is disabled for non-admins, and non-official groups are no longer listed in group search. You can still get to all non-official groups by using their URI, and if you're in them you'll still be in them and have them listed in your dropdown.
- Some backend changes in how we handle builds. This just makes us happier and doesn't reflect on you at all, except it was the reason we had that hiccup when deploying.
- Oh, I guess you can now see the people you're a fan of in a nice little list at top left. That's pretty cool.
We're going to be improving that one in a day or two.
I think... That might be it, actually.
Yeah, you can mention people in questions and replies now. Use that handy dandy @ symbol.
How are you.
Whats the little person icon next to the notifications icon?
@asnaseer @myininaya is what I'm talking about.
Mentions yield links, and notifications. You'll find some new settings in your notification settings regarding who you get notified about when they mention you.
Most notably, you can limit it so you only find out if someone you're a fan of mentions you, which I anticipate some superstars like say @myininaya, @amistre64 and @satellite73 will probably want to use.
Oh look, a slight issue with our parser hehe. Also worth mentioning, this is mostly the work of @farmdawgnation with some collaboration from @mattfeury , design all by @darthsid as usual, and the fact that it's not super-incredibly buggy is thanks to @msayer3 . Enjoy!
Now someone mention me so I can see what all the fuss is about :p
I guess the @ mention only works if you specify the full user name after it - does it handle prefix matching, e.g. will this work for myininaya: @myin?
asnaseer: Nope, full username only.
GUYS I'M SO EXCITED And no, nor will it ever.
@shadowfiend: @ is available not available in chat ?!
So some notes on the matching for @ mentions... You can either have the follow with a colon or a space. So @asnaseer: will work but @asnaseer. won't, because periods are valid pieces of usernames. We'll be working on a way to try and streamline that, if possible in the future.
o.O wow. My parser is smarter than I thought! lolol
Or buggier, we'll see!
What's a bug? ;)
We'll be considering its inclusion in chat, but for now it is only for questions and replies.
why did it colour farms reply yellow?
It's green in my terminal.
@asnaseer: Replies and questions that mention you are highlighted.
and again - what exactly is the little person icon just to the right of the notifications icon for?
Well right now it's just the list of your fans. We're going to bring some other goodness to that drop down in the next release. Oh YES, we're not done yet! ;)
I'm hoping that'll come out sometime next week.
Can we ping oneself, @FoolForMath ?
This is a really cooooool release guys - well done to all the "deb cakes" as @myininaya would call you :)
Lol, actually we can :D
so if i do _amistre64 i delete myself?
@darthsid is pleased.
@farmdawgnation: @shadowfiend @mattfeury @darthsid @asnaseer How many user I can ping per post?
I don't believe there's a limit, but don't get overeager. Mods and such will be keeping an eye out for mention spam ;)
c:\program files\dos\ find *stre64.bin
i think i broke my pingy lol
Cool release guys. iOS like.
As already mentioned by shadow, you can select to get ping notifications only from the people you fan. You can keep track of the people you fan from the new fancy dropdown next to the notifications!
Right, to change your ping settings just go to "Settings" and click "Notification Settings"... you'll find all the controls for whose mentions will trigger a notification there.
You may also opt to get an email if you're mentioned while you're offline, if you wish.
trigger was a horse
@trigger was a horse lol
uhoh, we can ping anything?
@jdfger and @@@
You can ping any valid user on the site.
trigger is a user i spose
We can tweet now.
are any of the meta-tags included in this release (i.e. tose that were mentioned on the UAC)?
Okay, what about multiple ping? @amistre64 @amistre64 ,... only one ping right?
I mean only one notification*
@FoolForMath - it will linkify twice, but will only trigger one notification.
at fool4math ; what about typos?
@amistre64 the risk of typos are reduced by the cool popup of matching users that appears when you start typing @...
@farmdawgnation Coool :)
Hmmmm. It would seem that we need to fix a bug where is there's a user who has part of your username it tags them instead.
@pokemon23 just testing it out
can we still swear @polpak ?
@darthsid - It's Alive! awesome stuffs @farmdawgnation @mattfeury @shadowfiend and @chris
Not entirely. amistre was tagged successfully more than once. Might be a fans thing.
Nah, I think the user ami was just created. heh.
as my avatar ages it gets more and more degraded lol
@amistre64 test test.
that was weird
cant use wildcards
Hm. That's fun. Alright, well it looks like it might be a heisenbug? Oh well. It looks like we're stable everyone. Let us know if we broke anything.
@amistre64 the geek within you arises :D
Do people get notified if we unfollow them? o.O
That depends on their settings. By default, you're notified whenever someone mentions you.
@arcticf0x I misunderstood you. No, when you unfan people they do not get notified.
@farmdawgnation ok cool :D
I forsee some pruning in many "fanned" lists' futures.
@shadowfiend @farmdawgnation @chris @mattfeury Neat! Does mentioning myself @myininaya tell myself that I mentioned myself?
I... Don't know, did it? :p
So it only works in question replies...not in chats yet?
oh i just read
questions and question replies gotcha!
@darthsid is an awesome designer now go design me some clothes to wear! ;)
@Laura* doesn't agree but @Owlfred needs cosmetic surgery so maybe @darthsid can design him a feather costume so that @myininaya can repluck his feathers Thanks you guys!
Once more, I repeat, he wouldn't need cosmetic surgery if @myininaya would STOP PLUCKING HIM!
Awesome @OS_team. ;)
@shadowfiend @darthsid @farmdawgnation Great job guys, love the new features :D Thanks
