Rabidb development paused for 3 weeks
Posted


Category: Bulletin

As per title says, unless something major comes up and needs urgent fixing, I'll be dropping off development on rabidb for the next 3 weeks.

Fear not, because I shall return in force!

Rabi-Ribi will be getting a pretty huge update in the upcoming weeks and I'll be busy translating the new content.

Expect some new stuff when I get back to it!


Release 19.8: Progress update
Posted


Category: Bulletin

Hello everyone.

Since it has been some time since last official release (24 days ago), I thought I'd drop by to freshen the page up a bit.

Thankfully, progress on Release 19.8 is going very well! You could expect the new version to be up and running by the end of next week. I'll try to avoid being too busy during week-end so I can fix possible bugs on the spot. Time management became quite an issue after I decided to take this heavy workload contract, but I'm doing my absolute best to keep everything updated.

As a little tease, here's what Release 19.8 will contain:
  • Lots and lots of fixes
  • Major overhaul of the comment section of each page ( + a little bonus page icon)
  • Changes in some of the styling effects of the base of the page (menu, header, etc..)
I'll take this opportunity to drop in shameless advertisement for my Patreon page (Link is here). With very low and realistic goals, you can help me support the website and gain small benefits. 

You can follow everything that will be added/fixed/changed as I progress in the next release (that little list up there is nothing in comparison!). Higher Patreon rankings can even help shift the development of the website by suggesting stuff, whether it be functionalities or styling effects. You also get a neat little badge on your web username to show everyone else that you're a supporter!

Milestone?
Posted


Category: Bulletin

Looks like we recently hit some pretty important milestone.

Rabidb now has over 200 registered users icon!

I was gonna wait until February 3rd to actually mention it, but I couldn't wait. (Those who can guess what is special about February 3rd, you get a cookie icon). As such, I guess we'll have to go into recruitment mode.

If anyone is interested: A moderator spot will be opened.

A moderator needs to logon the website (and stay logged [aka be in the 'Online Users' list]) once a day (being active).
A moderator needs to know the game well to be able to answer users' questions (in the form of comments mostly).
A moderator can approve new entries written by users (or delete them...).
A moderator can edit anyone's entries (to add details or add as many inbound links as possible iconCocoa).
A moderator can add/remove pictures/videos/gifs to anyone's entries.
A moderator has access to the Admin Lounge, a page created for website management.

Of course, granting so much power to someone I barely know is hard for me, so...
If you're interested in having such position, add me up on steam (see my profile for link) and we'll talk a bit.

Have a good one icon


Updates and WIP ~ Release 19.6
Posted


Category: Bulletin

As the holiday season approaches, I'll tend to be even more distant from working on the website.
Before I get hit hard with those 110+ hours of work / week, I'll try to get some job done over here as quickly as possible.
  • Dynamic "What's new?" section (updates live)
  • Raw frame of a Message Board
  • Waypoint creator (for the maps)
  • A little more work done on the new-to-come User Page (still postponing...)
I'm always eager to see how things turn out when I release new stuff, and I surely can't wait to get some work done on the map waypoints.

Speaking of which... The Memory Card Game page has been officially opened.
Be sure to give it a try whenever you feel like it icon
Known issues
  • Lobby information too 'textual'
  • No way of going back to a disconnected / abandoned game
  • No score tracking (for now)

Added the following 4 new achievements
icon Happy Holidays! icon

EDIT


Current known issues
  • Everything related to the User Tracker (online users, notifications, popup, etc...) stops working after the App Pool is recycled (IIS stuff...). Happens whenever the website becomes inactive (no active page loading) for a few minutes.
  • When writing an entry, you should get a weird result when attempting to Preview it.


Release 19.4 & 19.5 news
Posted


Category: Bulletin

Hello everyone,

This past month has been rough. There were times where the website would go down completely for no apparent reason. I tired different approaches to fixing this issue, but none really worked.

I had to take down the website down for a few days during which I roamed through the code and fixed small things here and there. This is where I released version 19.5 beta, because I was unsure of the final result.

So far, so good. Everything is pretty much stable now. User Activity and the notification system were moved to the websockets layer (decreases the load furthermore on the server).

I also took the liberty to add a popup notification to the current notification system. If we're to build this kind of system, might as well make it big!
Release 19.4 is still something on progress (I had to postpone 19.4 and release 19.5 beta right away to fix the crashes).

Release 19.4 basically is the Memory Card game I created on the website using the Websockets layer (for multiplayer play). So far, we're still missing: disconnection tracker and a way to resume a game, a better interface for the game lobbies and a way to track down the score.

Once this is all sorted out, I'll make an announcement regarding the official release of version 19.4 features.
