Hey All

There's a new version of the BBS live now. It's still a little rough -- let me know in the comments if you find something weird going on. I'll be tweaking and extending it over the next month or so.

New stuff:

  1. Cartridge view. Carts are listed in the order they are posted rather than in the order of thread activity.

  2. Creative Commons tags.

The Terms of Use no longer require users to grant permission to use and remix cartridges. Instead, you can tag your cartridge under the CC4-ATTR-NC-SA license. In cartridge view, you can filter by this license.

On your profile page, click "Cartridges" and then "Edit Cartridges" for more information and to release your carts under CC4-ATTR-NC-SA.

  1. User Blogs

There are now blog sections for Voxatron and PICO-8, so that users can post relevant projects that aren't carts, or post about events etc. -- things that don't feel quite right under 'Discussion'. It's still possible to post your work that isn't related to anything Lexaloffle, but might be of interest to other users.

The Voxatron and PICO-8 user blogs are empty right now, but I'll go through and re-categorize existing blog posts soon.

  1. Searching and Tags

These are now a little easier to use, and tags show up on the thread previews. This is still a WIP -- I think tags will be important later for things like searching for music to use in a cartridge, or for tagging carts with a particular event (like a game jam).

  1. To do soon-ish:
  • The TOP filter will be based on newness as well as number of stars
  • Some kind of 'Hall of Fame'-like thing for historic top cartridges and posts
  • Lighter html that doesn't jump around when each page loads
  • Touch controls for cartridges so that they're playable on modern phones

Is there a faq or a very important message I should read before using the BBS? Especially for posts that are not linked to Lexaloffle.

It'd be great if there was a link to the latest post in a thread. I would link latest post user to that rather than their profile?

I haven't figured out a good way to do messaging yet, but I think it will eventually take the form of private threads that can be used for collaboration. As a temporary solution I'll do a form that sends an email (without needing to know the email address).

@Kling
Sticky posts! Yeah, an updated guide to using the BBS is overdue too.

@DarkNeko
Not yet, but go ahead and post anything you think might be of interest to the User Blogs section. Especially what you're working on!

@matt
The number of comments displayed on the right of OP, LP now takes you to the last page and last post.
