Hi everybody!

I've made a few small tweaks to the chat interface:

  • Online users visible on mobile (except in popout player)
  • Ability to collapse online users box (hit the little arrow)
  • Added an online users counter
  • Added buttons to quickly reply or PM a user (appears in the top right of a message when you hover your mouse over or tap a message on mobile)

I've recently pushed live a whole ton of updates.

I'm going to be frank here, there are so many little things changed (in the backend especially) that I'm not sure if I overlooked any important issues so there could be a whole pile of bugs waiting to crawl out (but that's part of the fun isn't it?).

A lot of the updates are months and months old but were never pushed live and I'm really bad at keeping a changelog, so I'm going to try and remember what's new.

General Changes
  • CSS changes/optimization
  • JS changes/optimization
  • Backend changes/optimization

Blog
  • Unlisted posts: these posts will be hidden from the feed but can still be accessed with a direct link (for example the April Fool's post).
  • Post interface: The interface to actually make posts was given a bit of a facelift.

Users
  • Style changes: User profiles have had their appearance adjusted slightly.
  • Remember me sessions: Users can now view and cancel any active remember me sessions in their panel.
  • Comments: Users can now comment on user profiles.

Notifications
  • Email: Users can now be notified of a notification by email, to do so they can enable the setting in their panel.
  • Automatically mark as read: Users can now have notifications automatically mark themselves as read when they click on them, this can be turned off in the User's panel.

CommentsYou can now link to comments (currently no button or anything, but here is an example).

Playlist PageThe legend for all the systems should now stick to the top of the page as you scroll.


Let me know if you find anything I missed so I can add it to the list! Also let me know if you find anything broken or acting strange!

P.S. If the layout looks stange, refresh the page.

As the site is still in development, there are bound to be bugs. If you find any bugs or have any suggestions, feel free to email them to us at dev@radionintendo.com.

    Hello!
I've pushed some changes to the chat live today.

These changes include:

CommandsThere are now commands you can use in the chat to perform various functions, such as:

  • /help - Shows you a list of commands available to you.
  • /clear - Clears all the messages from your chat window.
  • /pause - Pauses checking for new messages.
  • /mute - Allows you to hide messages coming from certain users
  • /pm - Send a message to another chat member without other users seeing it.

If you have ideas for other commands, please don't hesitate to share them!

OpengraphThere is now some opengraph support, this mean that when a link is posted in the chat you may see a little more information related to it.

Private MessagesUsing the /pm command you can now send private messages to other users in the chat. Only you, the recipient and admins can see these messages. To tell if a message is a private message or not look for a small red arrow and your name in the message.

As the site is still in development, there are bound to be bugs. If you find any bugs or have any suggestions, feel free to email them to us at dev@radionintendo.com.

        Sounds good! I'm excited to get some new music in the rotation. Thanks for keeping the site reliable, updated, and fun.
Hey guys, I know it's been awhile since any updates here (we've all been pretty busy) but I just wanted to wish all of you happy holidays!

    Bacon, in the next update of Radio Nintendo, could you add a soundtrack suggestion box? Maybe one where people can add YT links for samples and such.

      Been thinking of something like this for awhile, will think about how to implement such a thing. The only real issue I have with something like that is if the correct people will check on the suggestions, Mainly Illus and Jack since they deal with the music stuff; I just do the technical stuff.

        That would be a good plan. It could be a page called "suggestion box" or something. With a link to a YouTube playlist with the music. Maybe link it to the page where the overview of all the games are that are currently into the database? Thinking out loud here.

        Unrelated sidenote, speaking about updates... I think it's a good idea to rename the page named "playlist" to "index" or something. Since more than once, I thought it was the current playlist of the songs that were playing.

          I think the playlist name is a ok name, more accurate and straightforward (In my opinion) than something like "index", although I can understand the confusion. There is probably some better verbage that could be used but off the top of my head I can't think of much. Maybe something like "Tracks", "Tracklist" or "songs", but to me none of those feel right.

How's everyone doing? Shugnussy here to bring you up to speed on some current events with the stream.

After recently looking over our current streaming setup, and our desire for expansion with more content, we realized we need to change the software we are using to broadcast music on the station. Because of this, we will be messing with the stream a lot this week, and I would just like to apologize in advance in the event the stream goes down. I had to pull the stream down just now for a decent amount of time, and I honestly got a twisty feeling inside while it was down, since I know you guys like to listen. I will try my best to maximize up time this week, but I'm just letting you know now. With this software upgrade, our stream box will soon also be hosting our sister site, Radio Whirlwind. Other than that, I want to keep this update short and sweet until we're done with all the upgrades and I can boast about all the cool new features we get to show off to you guys. If you have any questions or concerns, drop them in the comments below!

    Is the disappearance of Radio Nintendo and SNES (N64) Radio an expected part of the current maintenance?

        I turned back on Shinesparkers, but during the upgrade process, I'm leaving all the other alternative streams offline.
