Terms of Use (ToU) update for the site

written by shevek - 2014/01/11 13:01

The site was just updated to support the new ToU that became active at the same time.

Additionally to the changes for the ToU some bugfixes and updates happened:

  • The editor for forum posts etc. was updated to the latest version (some options where disabled at the same time that were rarely used)
  • The suggestions feature now has a <a href="/suggestions/results">list of results</a>. So that you can easily browse through the history of suggestions.
  • The first suggestion was already implemented and the community gallery was removed as a result.
  • It is no longer possible to post into groups you're not a member of. With the old behaviour you could post into a group and never be able to see that post.
  • The translation backend was rewritten, so that the translators have less work keeping the site up-to-date while knowing better what needs to be updated. As a result of that some areas might now show English text where they showed a translation before (as the English text was updated and the translaton hasn't been checked yet).
  • The FAQ pages are a lot prettier now,

A complete list of changes can be found on Trac.

The whole thing wouldn't have been possible without the support by crumbking, sitatara and tsjoek. So please join me in saying "Thank you".
