Welcome!

So then, anything new this Monday morning for you guys?

As you've probably noticed, we're up to no good again. We hope you enjoy the new stuff. We've replaced the entire Shack codebase from the ground up, so it's been a bit of an undertaking. The good news is that we've replaced 10 years' worth of patch work all at once. This means that we can finally make changes to the site as needed. We plan that based on feedback from you guys we'll be making some changes.

With that in mind, we've replaced hundreds of things. The development cycle for it all started last year and given how small our team is we're sure we missed a few things. If you run in to a bug please contact me via email so it doesnt get lost in the comment shuffle.

This is not nearly everything though. You can check out the Played Podcast recently, where we talk about some of what we're up to along with quite a bit on the history of this place. Also, note that I have the voice of a 12 year old boy.

So then, please dont mind our mess for the next few days while we work out the kinks. We've prepared as best we can with such a small team, but with so much new code and so many visitors... Well, I'm sorry if you have any trouble. If you're really feeling nostalgic, old.shacknews.com is still online for a bit. A little list for what we're still tweaking:

  • News by category body/links clickable without going to onearticle
  • Minor comments browser issues
  • Expand capped thread in IE (just scroll your browser to fix)
  • Storing collapse in comments
  • Search box behavior
  • Blank comments
  • Shackmessage archives
  • Old article/screenshot links
  • Shackreviews listings/sortings
  • More to add here!? Probably!
