Done a review. Also, why it's showing a four an half stars on the page?

Bun Fluffpaws · 18/05/2016 22:49

I actually don't know, umm bug :D
That one is going in my tidy up list.
Not overly bad in general, i think pages has only had a few issues in total and none of them were that big

Joe Ronald Martin Nat-Khan English · 18/05/2016 22:51 · 1 Reply

Oh alright then. Yeah maybe it is a bug. Yeah I think its a bug, because its showing five stars on the review page but on other pages are 4 an half stars.

Bun Fluffpaws · 18/05/2016 22:54

I can kind of guess what it is, but its getting late (midnight) so im going to be heading off now, night :D 

Joe Ronald Martin Nat-Khan English · 18/05/2016 22:55

Oh ok then. Plus, its not really much a big issue will not cause bit of connivence at all; so take your time, I think. Good night.

What happened to the latest members to join list that was in the top right corner?

Pyruoo · 2 months ago · 8 Replies

It has been replaced with an ad spot

Pyruoo · 2 months ago

You can find new members under the members tab.

Colliefan · 2 months ago

I know as I found it last night while looking. I have to give this change two thumbs down. Not only does it make it harder to find said feature it also clutters up the main page with ads, the same thing that upset so many FA users.

Pyruoo · 2 months ago

Interesting

Colliefan · 2 months ago

Removing a useful feature and then hiding it in a submenu so you can plaster more ads on the main page isn't such a wise move. Keep in mind ads cheapen a site and too many ads is what angered so many FA users and forced them to use ad blockers or leave. I warned Weasyl about something similar when they changed the thumbs, a lot of people left over that change and the staff's refusal to fix it, same deal when FA changed the thumbs and upset many users. Now I will never buy anything advertised here because there's too many ads.

Pyruoo · 2 months ago

The advertisement of furry arts, crafts, and writing, is a very important part of any furry website like Furiffic. Exposure is very key to new and old artists. The staff of furiffic recognise the importance of such things and cater to our user's needs.

The new member's option was always there in that "Submenu". We didn't hide it. ;) 

The new member's feature was never a dominant feature on the site to begin with. 

You'd have to be pretty lazy to complain about a change like that. 



Colliefan · 2 months ago

it was better the way it was. Also all the ads plastered all over the main page put me even viewing, so artists aren't even getting their art viewed by me now. So trying to flog me crap I'm not interested in and removing new members feature from the main page has had the opposite effect and put me off viewing the main page at all.

Just finished adding importing from Furaffinity scraps and folder names, so that will be ready for next update.
Is there any site that you would like to be added to the importer next?

Furiffic is looking for Volunteer Moderators!  


We are looking for 2-3 people to moderate the site, and one person to moderate and post to our Facebook and Twitter pages.


These are both no-stress volunteer positions- just keep an eye out for and occasionally check and resolve reports on the website, and post a few things on each page and answer messages on Twitter and Facebook for the latter position.
As mods, we pride ourselves as being as a part of the community as any other user, so community interaction and general friendliness is always a good thing.

We are especially interested in Americans/Canadians or anyone in that sort of time zone, seeming as our mods are very English right now. But feel free to apply no matter where you are from.

 

Here is the application- Thank you for your time and we look forward to hearing from you! 

Tea · 23/05/2016 17:21

Thank you for the applications so far! This will be open for a few days yet, just to add that on. :) 

Pyruoo · 23/05/2016 18:40 · 1 Reply

Whats the expected date applications will be closed and the people picked?

Tea · 23/05/2016 20:21

None set right now- But I am aiming for about a week. I'll pretty much just look at them when I have the time to. Sorry it's not an exact time and date, but all I can say is it will be within this week and there will be an announcement when the new mods are chosen. :)

Pyruoo · 23/05/2016 20:35

Alright I'll make sure to look for the announcement around Friday or so. :3

Tea · 25/05/2016 16:24

Just an update- Applications will close tomorrow at about midday (UK time.) There are some really good ones so far, this will be a hard choice! Thank you all for your overwhelming support!

Tea · 27/05/2016 07:39

Mods will be chosen on Monday/Tuesday! Bun is busy at Confuzzled (I didn't account for that, oops!) and we need to discuss our options before finalising anything.
I know a few of you will wonder, so thought I would put this out there :)

Pyruoo · 27/05/2016 13:17

Thank you, Bunny thing. :3

Updates, Cupcakes and things. 

So what's been happening recently?

Over the past few months a quite a few internal things have been changing which is holding up any noticeable changes, but heres a quick list of thing that have changed.
 - PAIN: Server upgrades.

 - - (The current server is getting quite old and have been running for 857 days "Shameful woop", the server is being split into a new dedicated for the site/services and virtual for build/issue tracker).

 - - however this has now been longer than a normal server setup for the case of future proofing, the cluster has now been set up via automation based on a config and takes about 30 minutes to set up from scratch, as a just incase anything happened we would be able to recover a lot quicker than a manual setup.

 - BUG: Few hotfixes to fix issues preventing users from signing up on mobile.

 - SECURITY: Imagetragick patched.

 - TRACKER: Noting down issues/improvements in our issue tracker based on user talk, ready for when theres free time to knock off small issues.

What's coming up over the next few months?

 - Bun Fluffpaws will be away at Confuzzled for 5 days later this week, and if you have any issues, be sure to leave any problems you have via the Feedback button, or by contacting another staff member.

 - Finalizing the new servers and moving over, hopefully by the end of June.

 - Discontinuing the forum in favour of Furiffic pages, this will have around the time the servers get moved about.

 - Possibility of streaming development, though this is a new thing for Bun Fluffpaws, so let us know if you would be interested?

 - Looking into opening up our issue tracker so others can view the ongoing / past issues.

 - Back onto features/improvements

 - - Page general improvements

 - - Page content

 - - Page shops

 - - Call to actions - suggestions related(media, subscriptions, pages, journals, characters), account actions.

 - - Feature tips for first time use.

Cupcakes?

Yes, all the cupcakes, every one of them *throws cupcakes around the site*

Joe Ronald Martin Nat-Khan English · 22/05/2016 20:57

Oh I wish I could go to Confuzzled but I don't have the money for it then. Anyway, I'm sort of interesting with the streaming development thing?

Do you guys have plans for an API? Exodus Helper may add Furiffic support to show who on their FA watchlist is on Furiffic (as it already does with Inkbunny and dA for instance) but only if you have an API.


See the issue: https://github.com/TheRealGitCub/fa-exodus-helper/issues/7

Bun Fluffpaws · 21/05/2016 06:25

We have plans for an API but this is at a far later date, i have commented on that issue with a API like data source that can be used for what is required though.
