Great work!  Responsive as always.

The user feed is dope, and I see I have some BGA Gold to spend :)

I made sure to retroactively give the appropriate amount of gold to all the users who've already contributed to the website ;)

The site is looking awesome. I wish I had a bit more free time to poke around at all of the new and cool things I see when I get the chance. Thanks for keeping everything smooth for us mobile users as well.

I like the user feed, that's a good idea. I'm glad that you can customize it.

I'm pretty excited for its future potential too.

This is awesome. I'm digging the Avatar badges -- they remind me of the Imgur Trophy Case. (Would you have birthday badges, special events, etc?)

I'm considering having something like that. I've been adding a bunch of games and content and it would be fun to have achievements or something to show off.

loving the new features and the direction you're taking the site. my gaming group primarily uses BGG but we've always been pretty unhappy with how infrequently they update their format. the whole site feels outdated at this point. at this rate you'll definitely give them a run for their money soon enough. maybe a mobile app some time in the future? since most people spend more time on their phones than anywhere else nowadays.

I do have a mobile app in the roadmap that I'll be building myself. However, there are 2 developers making mobile apps right now using the API I built. I've seen a few screenshots and I'm super excited for it!

Ive noticed you can filter by tags such as "review" and "BGA". how do you add those to posts?

Supporter19 months ago

There's a little "flair" dropdown next to the button to link games when you make a post.

Awesome is a knight default or did you pick that one out for me?

Supporter19 months ago

There’s 7 starting ones and it was randomly selected. You can go to your profile and see what else is available though :)

ok a couple things: i just accidentally reported your comment instead of clicking reply :( it might be nice to have a confirmation button for reporting :D

now to my actual question: will it be possible later to see who replied to you in the notifications instead of just "somebody"

Supporter19 months ago

Yes and yes. I’ll fix those by tomorrow.

Ooh, I will have to look into this.

Give me some feedback after you do! I'm working on this a bunch for the next couple days.
