🤣🎉 Happy New Year, Similar Worlds! 😀 The SW Team has quite a few exciting things to announce.
[big]• Best Answer 👍🏽[/big] You can now finally choose a Best Answer for your questions! Once you pick a best answer, that answer will stay on top of all others. You can change the best answer at any time.
[big]• Featured Posts 📌[/big] You can feature up to 5 posts. Featured posts are moved to the top of the first page of your Profile. Useful if you want to keep something important on the first page, without preventing you from posting more stories!
[big]• Auto-Save Draft Posts 💾[/big] We have all experienced once losing all our work, when our device decides to crash in the middle of writing a huge text. We are now saving your post every few seconds, so you don't lose your contents if your browser crashes or the page refreshes. Please note that this only works on modern browsers and if you are not using the Incognito mode.
[big]• Account Activation and Email Change notifications 🛎[/big] Many users verify their email addresses using the method of sending an email to us. We found that many of the emails sent to us are not from the same email address that the user has signed-up with, either because there is a typo on the email or because the user sent the email from another email they own.
So, we are now sending notifications when we detect the email did not match, telling the user what might be wrong, but also send a notification when the activation worked, so the user is aware that we processed it.
[big]• Improvements in Search 🔎[/big] • Search is faster now, as we improved our backend. • It's possible to search through the address bar if you are on Google Chrome, pressing TAB, and also through Firefox's Search bar. • Group search now provides "related" results. For example, if you search for "dogs", groups with "dog" (singular) will be included.
[big]• Other Improvements ⚒[/big]
As always, there are plenty of other improvements and fixes we make as we progress:
• Our 404 error pages are now consistent with the rest of the website. • A few tweaks, improvements and fixes to our recently released Gifts features. • Loads of progress in stopping trolls/spammers on Similar Worlds. We've had a huge decrease recently! • iPhone users should not get an unexpected auto-zoom anymore when they focus on a text field. • We will now show the full date (e.g. Dec 12th, 2016 instead of "1 mth ago") if the post is older than a few days.
[big]• Coming Soon ⏱[/big]
