Advance your search

written by shevek - 2014/04/02 22:31

Hi all,

it's been a while but finally a new release for the web site. Main addition are the advanced options for the new text based search which can now be found in the 'Find members' menu.

As the provider of the map tiles changed his policy for serving free tiles we had to switch to a different provider which now is Mapquest. The maps show a bit more terrain due to this switch.

Additionally some bugs were fixed and some suggestions (/suggestions/dev) were implemented. This includes the removal of the 'World' visibility and the renaming of 'Other restrictions' to 'House rules'.

All of which wouldn't have been possible without the help of Toub, crumbking, thorgal67 and leoalone.

I hope you enjoy the updated site and find someone speaking your language from one of your groups where ever you travel.




Thank you all!

Thanks for the nice search tool and the implementation of suggestions.

I have to admit that I never was a big fan of the removal of "world" visibility, but lately I have become more and more convinced that BW does not need off-topic "world" & "google" forum threads, especially not on the front page.

Thanks again!

Thanks a lot!
