This round of changes has focused more on removing poorly implemented/utilised features in an effort to allow me to spend more time working on the features members want once the mobile optimisations are completely rolled out.
Here is a list of the latest changes:
- Updated the style of comments displayed on profile and comment pages
- Removed the ability to send a user an email from their profile
- Removed the ability to privatize/deprivatize comments
- Removed the privatize, deprivatize and add buddy links from comments
- Removed the table of random smilies above comment forms
- Removed the ability to send group comments
- Removed cloaked comments (Private comments now function in the same way as cloaked comments did)
- Removed the ability to rate a user (This may be temporary, I'd like to hear your thoughts!)
- Many database changes
- Update server and third party components
I think I'll get rid of the ratings for now and possibly reintroduce a better system depending on how the community feels in the future.
