Hello DDO!

Later today we are pushing out a release to Debate.org with new features focusing on debates, debate voting, new leaderboards, forum notifications, personalization options, adjustments to the notification bar and several other things.

The majority of the features in this release were a direct result of feedback from members. We heard you and have worked to incorporate new functionality for debates, debate voting and forums. We are planning on releasing later this afternoon, at which point I will update this thread with all of the details so you can check out the newest additions.

As a side note, we are still interested in getting more feedback on the Team Debates concept " feel free to add your opinion to this poll - http://www.debate.org...

Thanks!

One additional thing to note - in order to make room for the new Personalization tab, we moved the Blocked Members functionality to your Friends section. You still have the same ability to block other members, but the location of the functionality has changed from Settings to the Friends section of your account.

This is wonderful, though I don't really know what the personalization options affect. They don't seem to change what boxes are on the homepage.

Oh, it affects the actual site homepage, not the dashboard. Nevermind.

It's still a great update.

Thank you!

My favorite part is being notified when someone responds to a forum post I made. It's so much easier than digging through the forum to find threads you posted in.

I think it only lets you know when someone quotes your post and replies. I don't think it tells you every time someone has posted on the same thread as you.

If the former is too much, then stop posting here so much, luzer! :D

Is this why I had 46 phantom notifications when I just logged in now?

There seem to be a few bugs we need to iron out. I personally have several hundred phantom notifications that are popping up. We'll fix these issues soon.

I just realized that the link I posted wouldn't work. Anyway, all of the personalization options overlap pretty much half the home page.

Do you think you could post a screenshot of the issue you are describing? Also, it could be a caching issue. Try closing your browser, get back on to DDO and then clear your cache using CTRL + F5. You may have to hit CTRL + F5 a couple of times. Let us know if that resolves the issue. If not, try snapping a screenshot so we can get an idea of what you are describing.
