Get 'em while they're hot!
Hey, look! It's another one of those rare feature updates that happen like, once a year or something.
NEW: Leaderboard page
Think you got what it takes to be in the top 10? Just curious how you stack up? Check the leaderboard page and see!
NEW: Level cap increase
When we created SocialCu.be we though it would take ages for anyone to hit level 60. Turns out it only took me like, 5 years or something and then @umer936
made it not too long after.
Since taking away the shiny gold level 60 badge would be sad, we've kept it so that users who hit level 60 now will still get the gold badge, but the real
challenge is to hit the new level cap: level 100
The level scale still uses the same curve beyond 60, so going from level 0-60 is approximately 1/4 of the way to level 100. What, you thought this was linear? Nope!
So, what happens when you hit level 100? Uh............... well........... we have some time to figure that one out.
Additionally, we've been tracking rep even beyond 60, so users who already made it (that is to say, @umer936
and I) didn't stop gaining progress. That mean you
have some serious catching up to do! Get posting!
...more tags. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
[spoiler]You can use it to hide text and images!
- The [LINE] tag!
You can use it to
space out your content!
- The [CENTER] tag!
Look, it's in the middle!
- And the [RIGHT] tag!
Can't go wrong with a [RIGHT] tag
All of these are standard tags which means they're free
to use as much as you like. Check the BB Guide below any postbox for syntax reference.
Oh, and you may notice one other secret
change made it in. Can you spot it? ?
Announcing the arrival of the [YT] bbcode!
It's now possible to embed YouTube videos on SocialCu.be, anywhere you please! Simply copy the part after "watch?v="
in the url of a YouTube video and put it between [YT] tags. Like this:
On that note, have some tunes, courtesy of this news article.
Bonus fun fact about the site decorations:
I actually added then all at once but they're set to show a new one each week in December. So you can look forward to that next year. Maybe I'll even add some in between days for next time too.
That's right, I finally got around to modernizing the look of the site.
In addition to looking cleaner, a bunch of the residual inconsistencies have been cleaned up too. Generally, things should look less bad (as one would hope).
Aside from that, the search page got it's own link on the sidebar finally and has been update to include the ability to search your past statuses.
Hello and WELCOME to the first (monthly?) SocialCu.be QN contest!
"QN contest? What's that?"
Pretty much what you'd expect. Submit a QuickNote that you drew and at the end of the month a note will be selected as the winner! The only requirements are that it fits the theme
and follows the site rules
(so no NSFW stuff, etc.) but other than that, the sky is the limit.
"What can I win?"
One of these
fancy contest winner badges or, if you already have a contest winner badge, we'll give you 100 cu.bes and a sense of pride and accomplishment!
"Cool, how do I enter?"
Simply add the QN you want to submit in a comment on this article. You only get 1 entry, but if you change your mind before the month is up, you can submit another and we'll only use the latest entry. You have until May 31st at 11:59pm eastern time to submit. We'll announce the winner in a news article and send you a message that you won.
"So... what's the theme?"
The theme for this contest is...
(If it turns out enough people want the contests to keep going, we can do them monthly, but we'll see how it goes.)
It's time for an update! This time the focus is on friends.
Well... I guess, not really the friends themselves, but the way we show which friends you have here! Most notably, we now actually
have a place to view all your friends... the Friends
The friends are sorted by when they were last online so you know exactly who to bug because they haven't been online in like, 8 years.
In addition, the friends display on the sidebar has been json-ified and limited to 10 friends which should substantially reduce the page load times for those very popular users (such as myself).
