First fixes...

With every launch it is inevitable that some bugs are found:

  • Found out that blogs with a '-' as first or last character of their name have problems with comments... This is due to the fact that '-' is an illegal character if used in first or last position in a part of a domain name, and our cache refreshing system started acting up because of this. Pity, but 11 bloggers will have to change names :-(
  • The blogging by SMS manual was hidden too well, it seems ;-) So we added a few links here and there, and even an image left and right.
  • I found a mistake in the stylesheet of the design I'm using on this blog, causing the texts of the form in the comments section to appear black-on-black. Fixed now.
  • Some other minor text stuff was fixed as well...

    Coming up next: a blog moderation tool for our product team, so we can act even quicker on reports of abuse...

    Yeaaaaaahhh!!!! We finally launched the new features of Skynet blogs!
    Hip hip hooray for ourselves...

    By the way, the optimized database structure and some improved queries should also make certain pages load a lot quicker than before... enjoy!

    Just spent some time looking at some database queries and tables, optimized a few things and added the odd index or two.

    Bottom line: the front page of Skynet blogs on the Skynet portal should now load (slightly?) faster. Let me know if you noticed it...

    Hmm, the logo generator over at this place really is cool!
