Get 'em while they're hot!
I have tweeked blogs up a little bit. You can now have a lot more than you used to be able to. There yah go. Also, I made the delete button work.
However, on a more important note. So stay with me. Many of you do not seem to understand the way blogs here work so let me explain it.
You create a blog(series), which has a generic title such as "My Reviews". People then subscribe to that BLOG for reviews. A blog entry is what it is called when you add an entry to that blog. It is not just a place to dump random crap(unless it's a random crap blog
) like most website blogs are. Our blog system is structured, and works like a real blog website.
If that still doesn't make sense please tell me so I can find a better way to explain it.
Lastly, many of you have been trying to make blogs about website updates. This is what the affiliate section of the forums are for. Please post a "Such and such updates" forum for your website in that area, and update it as you please.
Thank you for reading, with your help we can turn the blog section into a great part of this website.
So, as I've mentioned a hundred times before, we have a lot on our plate as administrators right now. There are weeks worth of very important stuff we have to do.
So, to get straight to the point. Please refrain from asking for new features and properties until we have already finished what we have planned. Glitches may be reported via the previous glitches news article or by PMing an administrator. But, pointless arbitrary things like an on/off swear filter(yes, I'm looking at you Ray :P) can wait until the more important stuff is done.
We just released a few days ago and have a lot of important work to do to stabilize the website. We can not be adding new features or be using up our limited time on things that are not as important.
This is not to say we won't add features here and there for you, but let us work at our pace for now.
Later, I will post a news article asking you what you want us to work on, but for now we just need a little space.
I hope to get the site stabilized and new features running soon.
If you got your email confirmation when you registered: Go ahead and stop reading.
If you did NOT receive an email upon registration though, please comment your email provider. I need to see if there is a consistent pattern to which users don't receive emails. Only way I'll be able to locate the problem.
Now that a lot of users are on, a TON of glitches we didn't know about before are showing up. Things like email confirmation, avatars, etc...
Anyway, please comment on this article any glitches you have seen so we can fix them. Before you do though, look down and make sure nobody else has already posted it.
Skittles is working on QN as we speak, and should be open soon.
I am working on a developer-only section of Cu.be that will allow users to submit apps and themes easily and improve the site.
Apps won't come out for a while, LM101 is being a slacker(and he is designing that section).
We are having all-around email issues for reasons I have yet to look into. I'll post a comment or edit this article or something when I've made progress on that, but right now I have no idea how long it'll take. Could just be an easy fix.
I think that's everything, See you 'round the Cube!
PS: Send a PM to TheCube for a little easter egg
EDIT: I have solved the email sending problem. You should now receive mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, and then be able to reply. Comment if it doesn't work.
Still figuring out the confirmation problem; I'll keep you posted.
It's been a long time in the making, and I hope it's as great as we all hoped it to be!
