Thanks to everyone who has tried out our latest addition to Shacknews Cortex. Here are some answers to frequently asked questions/issues we are seeing today:

  • Are profile pictures working?
    • Kinda?
    • We may have a caching issue with the pics showing up on feeds.
  • Why did we add Cortex and Chatty logos to the top of their pages?
    • It's important that we distinguish user-generated content from Shacknews front page content as our brand grows.
    • We want to view Cortex and Chatty as services provided by Shacknews, kinda like Shackpets.
  • It's hard to navigate back to Shacknews.com front page from Chatty now.
    • We have added a link to the Chatty header as a fix.

      Sup, Mamoo123! So I've been busy but do we now live in the kind of future with jetpacks? Like, is there a service I can go to to fly in a jetpack? This is a serious question.

      Appreciate the quick response to feedback on the new launch. Gotta think of some stuff to post on Cortex Shouts
