- Better tracking for invites for our own internal metrics.
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
- 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.
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
- 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.
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
- 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.
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
We're going to be improving that one in a day or two.
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
I think... That might be it, actually.
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
OWAIT NO
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
Yeah, you can mention people in questions and replies now. Use that handy dandy @ symbol.
farmdawgnation

shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
How are you.
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
Whats the little person icon next to the notifications icon?
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
@asnaseer @myininaya is what I'm talking about.
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
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.
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
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.
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
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!
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
Now someone mention me so I can see what all the fuss is about :p
farmdawgnation
  • farmdawgnation
OHAI @shadowfiend
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
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?
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
!!!
farmdawgnation
  • farmdawgnation
asnaseer: Nope, full username only.
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
GUYS I'M SO EXCITED And no, nor will it ever.
anonymous
  • anonymous
@shadowfiend: @ is available not available in chat ?!
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
That's correct.
farmdawgnation
  • farmdawgnation
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.
farmdawgnation
  • farmdawgnation
o.O wow. My parser is smarter than I thought! lolol
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
Hahaha.
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
Or buggier, we'll see!
farmdawgnation
  • farmdawgnation
What's a bug? ;)
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
We'll be considering its inclusion in chat, but for now it is only for questions and replies.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Cool, guys!
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
why did it colour farms reply yellow?
anonymous
  • anonymous
It's green in my terminal.
farmdawgnation
  • farmdawgnation
@asnaseer: Replies and questions that mention you are highlighted.
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
and again - what exactly is the little person icon just to the right of the notifications icon for?
farmdawgnation
  • farmdawgnation
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! ;)
farmdawgnation
  • farmdawgnation
I'm hoping that'll come out sometime next week.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Can we ping oneself, @FoolForMath ?
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
This is a really cooooool release guys - well done to all the "deb cakes" as @myininaya would call you :)

@farmdawgnation: @shadowfiend @mattfeury @darthsid @asnaseer How many user I can ping per post?
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
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 ;)
amistre64
  • amistre64

Cool release guys. iOS like.
darthsid
  • darthsid
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!
anonymous
  • anonymous
lol @amistre64
farmdawgnation
  • farmdawgnation
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.
farmdawgnation
  • farmdawgnation
You may also opt to get an email if you're mentioned while you're offline, if you wish.
amistre64
  • amistre64
trigger was a horse

asnaseer
  • asnaseer

anonymous
  • anonymous
Okay, what about multiple ping? @amistre64 @amistre64 ,... only one ping right?
amistre64
  • amistre64
@♫♫
anonymous
  • anonymous
I mean only one notification*
farmdawgnation
  • farmdawgnation
@FoolForMath - it will linkify twice, but will only trigger one notification.
amistre64
  • amistre64
at fool4math ; what about typos?
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
@amistre64 the risk of typos are reduced by the cool popup of matching users that appears when you start typing @...
amistre64
  • amistre64
@ami ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
@farmdawgnation Coool :)
farmdawgnation
  • farmdawgnation
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
  • pokemon23
@pokemon23 just testing it out
amistre64
  • amistre64
can we still swear @polpak ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
@darthsid - It's Alive! awesome stuffs @farmdawgnation @mattfeury @shadowfiend and @chris
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
Not entirely. amistre was tagged successfully more than once. Might be a fans thing.
farmdawgnation
  • farmdawgnation
Nah, I think the user ami was just created. heh.
amistre64
  • amistre64
as my avatar ages it gets more and more degraded lol
amistre64

farmdawgnation

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.
asnaseer
  • asnaseer
@amistre64 the geek within you arises :D
anonymous
  • anonymous
Do people get notified if we unfollow them? o.O
farmdawgnation
  • farmdawgnation
That depends on their settings. By default, you're notified whenever someone mentions you.
farmdawgnation
  • farmdawgnation
OH
farmdawgnation
  • farmdawgnation
@arcticf0x I misunderstood you. No, when you unfan people they do not get notified.
anonymous
  • anonymous
@farmdawgnation ok cool :D
darthsid
  • darthsid
I forsee some pruning in many "fanned" lists' futures.
myininaya
  • myininaya
@shadowfiend @farmdawgnation @chris @mattfeury Neat! Does mentioning myself @myininaya tell myself that I mentioned myself?
shadowfiend
  • shadowfiend
I... Don't know, did it? :p
myininaya
  • myininaya
No. lol
myininaya
  • myininaya
So it only works in question replies...not in chats yet?
myininaya
  • myininaya
oh i just read
myininaya
  • myininaya
questions and question replies gotcha!
myininaya
  • myininaya
@darthsid is an awesome designer now go design me some clothes to wear! ;)
myininaya
  • myininaya
@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!
anonymous
  • anonymous
Once more, I repeat, he wouldn't need cosmetic surgery if @myininaya would STOP PLUCKING HIM!
anonymous
  • anonymous
great update!
