Bug fixes and new features
Hello, everyone! We think you lot might be interested in a few updates.
We’ve deployed some bug fixes lately, including the following:
- deviantART changed their download links, presumably to stop automated scrapers. Our automated scraper is now fixed, since they won’t fix their oEmbed API to provide links to full images, so you can once again drop dA deviation URIs in to get the image along with an appropriate artist tag and source URI set
- The changelog is back!
- Notifications on deleted/dupe-merged images won’t linger any more, and the displayed count will always be accurate/consistent
- Minor bug fixes to the forums, including a bug where posts might end up in the wrong topic if the title was the same across multiple forums
- Fixes to the new duplicate reporting system
On the new features front - well, nothing much for now, but we’ve redesigned the lists page - which was intended to give a nice overview of site activity - into an actual activity page. This page has the latest images, comments, and forum posts/live streams, as well as the usual recent/all-time top images.
We’re also fiddling a bit with the deduplication system to let us manage reports more readily and to allow uploaders more visibility about reports occurring. Our new LSH system ran into some kinks which we’re still working out but the slightly tweaked existing perceptual dedupe system is performing better in any case.
