20080730.144615
i added amazon context links... just because i can... if they're not too obtrusive... i'll leave them

20080114.231544
enabled mod_deflate on andromeda. the site is now seeing an estimated 80% reduction in overall size for clients to download

20080109.022443
added an rss 2.0 feed for the news at http://www.subnova.com/news/rss/. it will show the 14 most recent posts

20070823.031056
updated cq calculations so that if a member doesn't login to the website in the past 77 days, the contribution points start vanishing in a hurry... tanking the irank

20070823.024814
removed the referral ads from the bottom of the main content area

20070604.175607
ad-free viewing is now available to anyone with an iRank of 10 or higher... this rank can be achieved currently with something as simple as single approved news post

20070520.014647
updated the monthly operating costs system so that it can be more easily changed as costs increase... i've updated it to reflect our additional costs of operation with our facility in second life

20070413.023216
due to a recent surge of spam on the forums, despite several attempts to curb it (i really don't see why people think spamming this forum is going to get them anything)... i've made the guest account read-only. this means that if you want to reply or comment, you have to register

20070401.071657
the video ad block for google ads has been changed into a floating (closable) block. the stargate ad has been removed since MGM has decided to continue SG-1 in feature films. the google video ads are actually bringing in a slight revenue, so they're going to be sticking around

20070319.235237
the entire site is now on a new server, andromeda. this new machine is linux-based and hauls many much ass... only a hand-full of functions for iradio still remain on scythe. i also fixed some administrative functions on the forum. massive performance boosts across the board thanks to the new server

20070207.074226
major backend upgrades... we're now on mysql 5.1 and we've upgraded our jabber server... this caused some problems for new registrants... inable to login to the website, and not being added to the commonality group in the jabber network... this has all been corrected and fixed

20060801.094140
total overhaul of the iradio section... now supports any shoutcast-based internet radio server via a unified code structure... now fully integrated with the Tachikoma irc bot

20060519.225127
fixed a bug that was causing pending payments/donations to show up on the donation counter... only completed transactions should have been showing

20060510.223602
made a few more graphical and background tweaks to give the site a little more visual interest

20060510.054840
thanks to a handy little inline-hack, we now have proper alpha-masked png support for ie users... this means some new graphical eye-candy in the pipeline... kicked off with the new swanky halo 3 banner at the top of the site right now... enjoy!

20060507.041748
in a last-ditch effort to offer more incentive for people to contribute content to the site, i've made it so that if your iRank is 35 or higher, you can now turn off all ads on the site

20060423.075857
the cq/irank system has been completely rebalanced and all the calculations and factors have been reworked to better show recent contributions to the system

20060423.054945
added a progress counter for our operating costs::donations ratio... so you can see just how bad-off subnova currently is

20060419.220946
changed the iRank cap back down to 50... that's why your color-code has improved

20060419.220905
donations made via paypal from the button on the site (provided you're logged in) will now be automatically added to your cq for irank calculations

20060405.164104
tweaked the indenting on the forum thread views... the absurdly long threads now fit better (yay)

20060317.055732
new anti-spam countermeasures have been put in place... many bannings of ips have been made... many more to come

20060315.060255
added 2 new features, the statistics and sessions pages linked to from the info box. in these pages, you can see numbers about how many people and spiders visit the site. if it turns out that most of our numbers are from search engine spiders, i'll start filtering the live data to get more accurate numbers for real visitors

20060219.055953
the irc nav item no longer causes the entire site to load slow... it now makes sure searchirc is up before calling for the stats to be displayed

20060215.211949
made a few tweaks to layouts and adjusted the ad system a little to see if it improves revenues at all

20060126.034533
the forums have a new "mark all as read" feature at the bottom of the new unread posts header window... enjoy!

20060126.031509
finally made new unread posts show up in a dedicated table at the top of the forums... this avoids the issues of posts that are on threads that are way beyond the current limits... next up... "mark all as read"

20060120.133525
added a new subnova core webcam page and a auto-refreshing mini version on the nav bar... thought it would be fun to look at

20060119.035208
the index now shows the last 14 news posts instead of the past 7... news was being buried too fast to see it... this is a good thing

20060119.033909
news post authors can now edit their posts after they have been submitted... this means you can now preview your posts, as well as update them even after they've been approved... however, editing an approved post will make it go back into the queue for validation

20060117.113048
a small adjustment to the rss parser has tamed the engaget and joystiq feeds on the Collective page... they now follow the rules and stop cutting in line

20060117.110834
for those few of you who have the subanji font installed, i've toned down the level of its use on the site, restricting it to nav titles and the header bar

20060117.105511
made the info nav item more helpfull to guests with a login option as well as a link to information on how to get a subnova network account

20060116.055039
lots of random tweaks and adjustments made to the new collective feature... like listing what sites are assimilated and how old the news is and adding some more sites to the list

20060115.122408
added the new "collective" page... aggrigates data from multiple websites to be viewed on a single page... lots of scrolling ahead

20060115.061356
tweaked some of the css font size settings for improved layout and less clutter

20060107.102745
added sticky-news priority level color-coding of news posts... yellow means high level, red means critical... blue is normal

20060107.100445
added the bungieverse forum for discussion of all things bungie, including halo, oni, myth, marathon, pid, and gnop

20060107.100351
added a java client for the jabber system so that people can chat from public access terminals... and users can create site accounts without having to download a jabber client

20060105.093157
looks like ToyRocket may be out of stock on the Subnova Spartan figure... so i've removed the ad for it for now

20060103.063034
due to subnova only bringing in about 1% of the past 6 month's costs... i've enabled slightly more blatent ads... if other funding methods improve... the ads will go away

20051223.131246
partial image rendering support has returned to the library... many articles now have their images once again... some don't, due to old-style paths that aren't supported yet... that will happen after i take a nap

20051210.220256
fixed a random bug that popped up that was preventing guests from accessing some areas

20051210.203133
the snow script was causing too many problems... it's now gone

20051210.101231
added a user counter

20051210.092500
the seeker is back... it pwnz j00

20051208.052916
lots of cosmetic changes made due to the subanji update... also fixed some silly bugs in the library code... iranks were also adjusted due to an oversight... the irank color-coding cap was raised from 50 to 60

20051208.035319
subanji now requires downloading and installing the Subanji.ttf font

20051129.062338
moved some stuff around... added support for some small things... nothing really majorly noteworthy

20051128.065649
first version of library submission and editing has been added to the site... get submitting!

20051128.003118
iRank now calculates the CQ of any publically visible forum in the system... this will be handy if any new public forums are added in the future

20051128.003032
fixed some stuff in the nav link generating code... the current page will now turn bold... unless the page is dynamic content via the library, in which case the Index link will bolden

20051127.222853
updated the forum listings to be automated... any available forums at your rank level should now be visible

20051122.202802
fixed a really stupid mistake in the calculations in the cq progress bar so it no longer runs backwards

20051122.092034
fixed a long standing issue with the php version of url shorthand that was causing all _ to be replaced with spaces instead of just ones used in url shorthand

20051122.035719
begun work on adding page-specific TITLE data to the site's content... this could take a while

20051122.031120
commenting on news from the news post itself has returned! this version does not crosspost news into the forums, but, instead, gives you the ability to 'reply' to a news post as if it were a forum post... this starts a new thread using your reply... if a reply has already been posted, you are given a link to that first post

20051122.021019
added cq progress bar to the roster and info sidebar... also tweaked the UI colors stuff... added an extra space between news posts... moved the sticked news to the new temporary "read me" that's now at the top of the nav sidebar

20051121.072032
oh yeah... forgot to mention that .comic is back... not that it will ever get updated... but you can read the ancient funny, at least

20051116.055517
in theory, the irank icons now display correctly on all major browsers... if it looks wrong... please post on the general forum

20051116.052530
after disabling subanji globally, i have managed to make it cache correctly and drastically increase the overall speed of the site... this should also reduce the number of times you encounter timeouts

20051115.072355
instead of lots of little updates over the past several hours: i've added irank... and the roster... some more tweaks to the way iranks are displayed will follow

20051113.123521
massive overhaul of the library's indexing system... for now, everything in the library is shown on the main index

20051111.052642
fixed an issue with the avatar renderer script that was having problems with avatars set by Trillian... i wish jabber vcards were standardized

20051111.050558
fixed various css issues, including formatting of quoted forum text

20051111.043635
added an "unread posts" counter to the forum links in the nav... preliminary testing indicates that it not only works, but doesn't slow down pageloads by more than 1/10 of a second

20051110.093953
if you have Exodus, you can now set a sig via the "Personal Information -> Description" in the profile/avatar settings (or a client that sets the ORG->DESC values in your vCard)

20051110.084646
forums are back... in a basic form... no longer read-only. if you break something, let me know on IRC

20051110.081054
forums are back... almost. for the moment, they are read-only as i work out some of the bugs from importing the old forum code into v5

20051106.085601
fixed some minor formatting issues with library articles and dynamic database-driven pages

20051030.060850
the library is back... more or less... lots of stuff still needs to be done to it so articles can finally be submitted again

20051030.052624
initial porting of the library code has begun... i still have to update all the rendering code function calls

20051030.045334
fixed support for dynamic content based on 404 results... this paves the way for the return of the library

20051029.071726
fixed an annoying little bug in the png rendering function that caused news icons to be forced to 64x64

20051028.070818
various bug fixes in the news scripting system... things should be a little easier to use
