With the season of Big Brother All-Stars rapidly approaching, it’s time to fine-tune the site so we’re ready for the season. This update features a bunch of new additions to the comment section which I know you will all like.
Here are some new features added:
Registered users now have the ability to flag offensive comments. In addition, too many downvotes on a comment will trigger a notification. This really shouldn’t be needed as you guys are amazing, but it’s a good feature to have
If you mouseover a user, you can now see some quick stats. If you click on ‘full info’, you have the ability to see more about the user including the comments they made, their likes, and how many followers they have. If you have any privacy issues with any of those, please reach out to me and let me know what you don’t like. There were a few more options that I unchecked because some may not feel comfortable with that information showing.
This is a pretty small addition. You can see when someone is online from any of their comments. It will show on the main bar.
This is going to be a big favorite here. You now have a bunch of emoticons to add to your comments!
Registered and logged in users have the option to search through the comment section of that page. With our pages reaching 100+ comments regularly, this is a handy feature.
I’m not sure how I feel about this as it doesn’t appear to be working properly yet. I think the count starts moving forward and isn’t retroactive. However, you will receive badges with the number of likes your comments get. This will likely be tweaked.
When you’re replying to someone specifically, you can now mention them in your comment by typing @ and the username which is displayed next to their name. You can also try to use their nickname, but many have the same nickname that it’ll be very hard to find a person.
I also hopefully fixed the login issue so if you’re having trouble logging in please let me know! Have fun with the new comment system
