Update 6/7 1:50 PM
Going to try to to fix envelopes. The fix will add a lot more to our databases and may take us down. If it does, we'll revert the code and start down a new path.
300 changes in this one so I expect us to take the site down around midnight and bring it up within a couple hours of going down (not from midnight, from when we finally get it down - no guarantee, but that's the plan).
Then we'll begin testing everything and find new major issues and work through them. Lesser issues will be handled last and maybe even later in the day.
There will be issues, but hopefully the site will function for all intensive purposes (you can post, read articles) by the time the main morning crew wakes up and starts posting Thursday morning.
Would prefer not to take the site down, but this is one of those times we need to do it.
-- More info from previous post --
We're getting close to getting a fix in for the green envelopes. Along with that fix is going to be a ton of other user-facing and behind the scenes fixes/additions.
The biggest challenge was we simplified routes from the hundreds to 10s. This will help us gear up our performance, coding efficiency and site speed a little now (and a lot more in the Winter when we take time to prep for Signing Day).
We're also making some changes to images. Allowing upload from a url now that will not force you to upload from your computer to show an animated gif. It's not the end product and by no means the finished product, but it does give us three improvements: 1. upload animated gifs from a url and they work 2. the upload from a url animated gif file size is much larger than our current 1MB from a computer 3. The image thumbnails are slightly bigger & we're putting a little PLAY icon over animated gifs to help them stand out more (eventually, they will just play without clicking, but right now this is the next step).
Coaching pages will go live. You'll be able to see videos, photos, timeline events, articles, career and who the coach is recruiting. Basically a player page for the coaches.
Our admins will get some of their tools fixed too. There are more than 35 individual fixes going into this push and none of them are tiny. We'll do the push in the midnight/early morning and then work through the push and early hours to get everything running smoothly by the time more users join us in the morning.

Any idea when we will get to see the functionality for participation points?
I always thought this was hilarious because it was incredibly random.
Nice troll in the thread about which recruit you want.
Sorry Butte, that was Ducks.
I was actually going to post the same exact thing, he just beat me to it.
Nothing like that will be settled on until we spend more time on badges and participation points ... looking at likely post-NSD
Understood, thanks. There is only so much time in each day...
makes sense , thanks Noah
Is the old LNC making a comeback? Or is it still going to be in a coma?
Coma. We'll try to fix that during board rewrite.
