Recently we’ve had feedback that a few glitches on the site have been impacting the overall experience for many of you, which we apologize for.
So, like an automobile that occasionally needs to be sent to the mechanic for some re-tuning, we had to send Answers to the repair shop for a little bit of maintenance.
We’ve now taken it off the blocks, and here are the fixes you’ll see from this latest release:
- Many of you were not regularly receiving immediate email notifications when your network posted a question. We appreciate how vital it is to get your questions to your Answers network promptly, and we have now fixed this to ensure that everyone receives the emails on time.
- One bug that has been a frustration to many of you for a while now is that people whom you’ve added to your “Blocked users” list are still be able to post answers to your questions. This will no longer happen. Blocked users will no longer be able to answer your questions—we’re sure some of you will be delighted to know this!
- When questions were in voting status, we’d noticed the total number of votes were not adding up correctly. After sending the Yamster to a quick math refresher course, we now have the correct totals back on display again.
- A couple of months ago, we introduced inactive hyperlinks for Level 1 users. To continue to protect the community against potentially malicious links, we’ve made some improvements to this functionality to ensure that the right to post hyperlinks is earned by trust only.
Finally, we’ve also laid the groundwork for some more radical changes to certain parts of the site design…so watch this space!
Keep your feedback coming, and we’ll continue to work on keeping the site well-oiled.
