Chat/Community + New Dev Updates

I hope that everyone’s new year is off to a great start. Ours is certainly quite busy!

I first wanted to address a concern that many users have brought to our attention. Behavior in chat seems to have taken a turn for the worse with certain users seemingly only wanting to disrupt and disturb others, either out of spite or perhaps some perverted need for attention. While we are big believers in free speech, we also recognize that what makes Groupees a unique place to visit is our social layer, particularly group chat. With this in mind, we will not sit idly and let a few bad apples ruin Groupees for everyone else.

“Thanksgiving” Dev Update–NEW STUFF

First of all, I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving, including those who live outside the US and may only know of our tradition from the vantage of curiosity. It is absolutely my favorite holiday as the whole focus is giving thanks for what we have and what we share together. In that spirit, I wish to thank each and everyone of you. I know that I may sound like a broken record, but the reason I’m committed to Groupees is I value what all of you bring to our community. Without your involvement and contributions, we are really just another site selling things for cheap.

Dev Update for September

I do apologize for the delay in posting any updates on the dev front but it was a busy Summer + I wanted to wait until Trading Coins were implemented which I’m happy to announce indeed was recently accomplished.

If you happened to purchase Be Mine 14 and didn’t already notice, you will now see a Coins tab on your Purchases Page with your coins listed. Be Mine 14 purchasers received either the $3 Jonny Antimatter Coin or the $1 Slug Plutonium Coin. These coins were special as they increase in value as the total number of coins in circulation decrease. For instance, the value of the $3 Jonny Antimatter Coins has already increased to over $4.

Enjoy the moment...it's all you got!

April 2015 Dev Update

My apologies for the gap in providing some updates on the development side of Groupees. Ideally, I would like to do this every other month so I will do my best to keep to that cycle.

As I’m sure most of you can imagine, there’s lots of work that’s done behind the scenes and beneath the surface. Lot of non-glamorous but necessary stuff to keep things running well and make the experience generally a positive one on Groupees. Changes in APIs, new payment methods, bug fixes and the like keep our small team very busy.

New Ranks, New Powers

As you well know, members achieve ranks or status levels that appear on their profile. But, it appears that the level of awesomeness within the community has continued to escalate above and beyond the current status ranking system. As a result, new ranks with new powers are needed to be bestowed. Therefore, you now have the responsibility of choosing the additional status levels and their new powers. Cast your vote in the opinion poll! Continue Reading

ChatBot

ChatBot FTW!

Have you spotted anything new in the Groupees chat lately? Well, a pretty cool ChatBot has been developed and implemented by a fellow Groupees member, Cyanic.

Ermahgerd!

Cyanic kindly let me ask some questions about ChatBot and here’s what they had to say: Continue Reading
