[July 27, 2013] - New design for Most Thanked, Who's Online, and a few updates [revision]

Overview: We rolled out a few changes to the layout to include advertisements. We also added a "Back to Top" feature and redesigned the "Most Thanked" block, "Forum Statistics" block, and Who's Online block. We also fixed a bug with the topic pagination. For those topics that had too many pages, it would break the pagination.

"Back to Top" feature

"Back to Top!" feature is located at the bottom right corner of every page as you scroll down. Kudos to @seungristowel for suggesting this feature.

Redesign "Most Thanked" block
"Most Thanked" block has been redesigned and we are now able to fit 6 avatars per row. With this redesign comes with a display of 30 most thanked members instead of the previous 20.

Redesigned "Forum Statistics" & "Who's Online" block
Now both the "Forum Statistics" & "Who's Online" blocks are merged together at the bottom of the forum. We also got rid of the annoying white space to the right of the "Who's Online" block.

Comments: Let us know what you think! We will be rolling out more features in the upcoming weeks!

[July 28, 2013] - Extended active/new topics sidebar [update]

Overview: Due to the extra space we had by combining the forum statistics and who's online blocks together as well as an increase in forum topics created each day, we decided to extend the active/new topics list by 5 additional topics. You can now view 25 topics in the sidebar.

Comments: None.

[August 2, 2013] - Kpopselca accounts are now integrated with the selca comment system [update]

Overview: As requested by @tabloholic, we have updated our comment system so that it uses your Kpopselca account. This means you do not need to login a separate Disqus account to comment on selcas. To login the comment system, you can use the sign in with Kpopselca button located in the Disqus comment system or log into the Kpopselca website like you normally do. From now on, you will be automatically signed into the Disqus comment system when you are logged in our website. The comment system also uses your KPS avatar and KPS profile link in your Disqus profile.

Comments: Disqus won't allow animated gifs as your avatar so if you have an animated avatar it will be static. We will try to add other features soon like earning experience points when you comment.

Sign in with Kpopselca

You will be automatically logged in the Disqus comment system when you log into the Kpopselca website. Alternatively, you can sign in to the website using the Sign in with Kpopselca button right below the "Leave a message..." box. By clicking this button, a popup with our login page will prompt you for your KPS username and password. After logging in, the popup will close on its own (or on some browsers you will have to close the window yourself) and it will refresh the page.

If it is your first time logging into Disqus, your avatar will not show up until you refresh the page. Then you should be ready to comment on selcas!

[August 4, 2013] - New similar topics design when creating new topics [update]

Overview: We've decided to move the similar topics block right below the Subject field since many users weren't paying attention to it when it was at the bottom of the page. We also changed the design and made the font bigger so that it is more noticeable.

Comments: Hopefully this will help reduce the amount of duplicate topics.

[August 5, 2013] - Optimized "Most Thanked" Block [update]

Overview: We noticed a long page load time (~3-5 seconds) when going back to the board index of the forum starting about a week ago. The problem was that the "Most Thanked" block was examining over a million rows and every visitor would trigger this event. We optimized the block so that it updates every 5 minutes and there will be a slight delay on the tally of the "Most Thanked" block. Other than that, the forum should run smoothly now.

Comments: None.

[August 7, 2013] - Forum log out issue fixed [bug fixed]

Overview: Users with dynamic IP addresses (ones that change every time a user logs into their ISP) would get logged off from our forum but not our home page. Now if your IP address changes in the middle of posting or browsing our forums, you will stay logged in. Thank you @liin810 for reporting this!

[August 18, 2013] - New chat tab in right sidebar and Tinychat topic prefix [update]

Overview: We've decided to add a chat tab to the sidebar which will show a list of active chat threads. This is only a trial just to see how it goes. We also added a "Tinychat" topic prefix in the chat threads forum. From now on, Tinychat threads should be created in the chat threads forum and only one thread per TC room. If you want users to visit your TC room, you can bump your thread or tag people in the same thread. We will start moving all the tinychat threads there and merging the ones that are duplicates soon.

Comments: None.

[September 2, 2013] - Optimized forum sessions [update]

Overview: We noticed the forum would hang ever so often (~5-10 seconds) at random intervals so we managed to pinpoint the problem and it had to deal with the forum's sessions. Every time someone would log in, the server would have to examine over 300 megabytes of forum session data. We managed to optimize the forum sessions now so hopefully the site won't hang anymore.

Comments: None.

[September 3, 2013] - Forum session issue [update]

Overview: We just realized that the update we made yesterday had logged off many users from the forum when they idled on our website or were away from the site for some time. This is why there are few people online at the moment. We decided to revert back to how it was. The server hanging fix has nothing to do with the session update we made yesterday. We believe it was a bot crawling our website that caused this server hanging. We have denied the bot access to our website since yesterday so our server should not lag anymore.

Comments: None.

[September 3, 2013] - Pagination for bookmarks [bug fix]

Overview: Your bookmarked topics that have more than 1 page shows a really awful looking pagination. I thought I had fixed this already but apparently not. This is now fixed so that it matches the website's theme.

Comments: None.

[September 6, 2013] - Alert message when submitting drafts [bug fix]

Overview: We had a few complaints about the alert message that pops up when you load a draft and try to submit a post. This alert message would only trigger once before you can submit or preview the draft you have. We have removed the alert message completely but we believe you still need to click submit twice on a saved draft because the first time, it will trigger the "Is your topic a duplicate?" feature, after that you will be able to submit the draft.

Comments: Thanks to @toradora101 for reporting this!

[September 10, 2013] - Thanks list scroll bar is now visible for Firefox [bug fix]

Overview: For Firefox users, you can now see a visible scroll bar on the thanks list of every post so as long as it exceeds the height. The problem was because Firefox automatically hides the scroll bar if the div layer is less than 34 pixels in height, we adjusted the height accordingly and now you can see the arrows to scroll up and down.

Comments: Thanks to @PhoenixVFIRE for reporting this!

[September 13, 2013] - Nested private message and speech to text recognition [update]

Overview: User replies are now nested so there won't be separate reply messages in your inbox. We have also updated the message editor so that it is more light weight and faster to load. Users can copy and paste images into the message box or click the image button and paste the link to the image. We have also added a speech to text feature for those who have a microphone and are using Google Chrome browser. This feature is only available for Google Chrome users.

To use the speech to text feature, click on the microphone icon and speak into your microphone. The icon should turn red and blue bars will be shown if sound is detected.

If the user you are communicating with sends you a message while you are typing a reply, you will be notified about the new message right below the subject. You may continue composing your reply or refresh the page to see what they wrote.

Thank you for your patience! We have more features coming soon including profile walls.

[September 13, 2013] - Takes two attempts to delete private messages [bug fix]

Overview: With the new feature of nested PMs, this eliminated the bug of having to delete messages twice. Thanks to @Panda and @atlantica for reporting this bug awhile back.

Comments: None.

[September 15, 2013] - Selca comments tab added [update]

Overview: To increase the activity of the homepage, we decided to seamlessly integrate the disqus comments with the forum. There is now a comments tab that will show the latest selca comments made in the disqus system of the homepage. The comments are updated every 10 minutes. As we start to see more comments being made daily, we may lower the update time to 5 minutes or less. At the moment, the time stamp of the comments may not match your timezone preference of the forum. We will try to fix this issue next week.

Here is what it looks like on the homepage and forum:

Comments: We can moderate the comments so please follow our forum guidelines when leaving comments on selcas.
