December 19, 2018

January 26, 2019
Telinc1: Added client-side sorting for tables with the sortable-table class.
I have added several new actions to the site's API. This doesn't concern most users. It was done to prevent VilelaBot from having to go through the site's HTML to find the information it needs; as a side effect, it should also increase its speed and efficiency.

From this point on, any third-party bot or script which tries to parse the site's HTML is deprecated and could break without warning. Authors of such bots are encouraged to contact the coding team for more information.
Added a max size to the [size=2400] bbcode. This does not mean any smaller text is allowed, it's just to make it slightly harder to abuse the site layout even if the moderators somehow overlook your post.

I've changed the ellipses in pagination link menus to dropdown boxes with all of the skipped pages. This should make it easier to navigate long lists, especially those in sections. Based on a relatively old request thread from GreenHammerBro.
Added a gallery view to all sections which support screenshots. Unlike the default list view, it will show the first screenshot for each submission on the list page, along with minimal information about the submission itself. It should make it easier to find some types of resources, especially graphics. Alcaro made small last-minute changes to it to address some oversights.

Currently, the authors of the submission are not displayed, but it was suggested on Discord and will be implemented in the near future.

Now offers only the 50 pages at each edge of the dropdown, and multiples of 10. That 3000-entry dropdown was slightly irritating.

(gold star to the first non-staff who can find or guess which page contains a 3000-entry dropdown)

Did the same to the forum index Page dropdowns, the 1190-page bar&grill was only slightly less irritating than that 3000-page thing.

Also the gold star goes to Zandro.

Fixed bug where dropdowns showing a range of 2-2 were possible; dropdowns of 4 elements or less are now automatically expanded. A few numbered links are thinner than dropdown plus dots, anyways.

I've added the ability to place suffixes and prefixes on fields in sections. This means that the Insert Size on the music submission page is now prefixed with 0x, which should help alleviate people's confusion (note that that is one of many removal logs with a 0x0x insert size, I'm linking it only because it's the newest one).
Banned jpg in submission screenshots, there is no plausible submission where jepg would do a better job than png. There may be a few jpǝgs left around the sections; we'll fix them at some point maybe.

--------------------

I rewrote the Author filter in sections to fix a bug which prevented authors with invalid names from being found. This was reported by Meirdent.
Expanded the top 1 rows of trophies by default, per this suggestion. I believe that's a reasonable compromise between making trophies meaningful and not having to scroll four kilometers to reach the sample post.

--------------------

Minimum holiday name length is now three characters, because one too many users set the name to a single dot. Good job.

Please don't make me tighten the rules any further.

I modified the tag filter in sections so it allows you to exclude a tag without having to include or require another. For example, -abstract in the music section will now give you all submissions not tagged as abstract, whereas before it would give you no results.
I have added a new option to the Edit Profile page - gallery type. It allows you to customize the galleries shown on submission pages. The available types are none (shows all images at once with no gallery), compact (the current gallery which shows one image at a time), carousel (the gallery from the old hacks section which some users may remember), and grid (shows all images at once, but in a 3-column grid, just the gallery view in the section list).
I have overhauled the internal mechanics of thread moving. When a thread is moved, it will leave a temporary "tombstone" / "phantom thread" in the original forum, which should make it much easier to keep track of when your thread was moved.
I have revamped the Post History page, which used to be a rough staff-only page. You can now view the edit history of your own posts. You can see how a post looked at any point at which it was edited and you can now compare any two revisions, similarly to Wikipedia. If you can edit the post, you can also now revert its contents to a previous point.
I have overhauled the poll system. It now has a lot more features, including a much better user interface for the end user.

Links to post history now show up. (You forgot uploading one of the files.)

The site now has an internal system to process low-priority events. With this, we have implemented a native function to report new content to the #site‑feed channel in our Discord guild. You will now see the new bot, System, who will be reporting events instead of VilelaBot.

The format of the reports currently matches VilelaBot's. There are some other embed-based variants which we will have a poll for soon.

Sorry for the late notice, I forgot to update this thread when I pushed this to production.
