June 30th DC release

Hi, Community!

I'm pleased to announce the new Developer Community release today. Meet the changes!

New voting system

Now you can vote for the post or comment with like or dislike buttons to change the post/comment rating.

Previous ratings converted to the new rating with the following rule:

4,5 stars = +1

1,2,3 stars=0.

Improved email notifications

You should receive HTML notifications now on new posts and comments on DC.

Please share your feedback with the recent release.

And vote up this post ;)

Comments

Thank you for the update Evgeny!

I have feedback on the emails - it seems that the new comments are shown as threaded instead of reverse posting order in the email, which means you have to do a lot more scrolling and check timestamps in order to tell where the new content is.  It would be great if it could go back to the reverse threading in the old emails which made it much faster to see what the new content was.  

Also, there seems to be some CSS impacting the layout of the emails for mobile devices. The content doesn't flow nicely but goes off of the right side of the screen, requiring horizontal and vertical scrolling or zooming out to the point it's hard to read on the phone.  If someone could look into fixing that it would be most appreciated.

Thank you, Benjamin!

It is still so much to work to make email notifications really helpful.

We'll try to fix the issues in some next releases.

 

The emails still need a lot of work, but it's better than the wall of plain text we were getting!

As for the thumbs up, I would think ratings of 1 should have been a thumbs down, but no big deal.

 

Overall, great work! Happy to finally have thumbs up/down!
