Site News: Bug Fixes, Quick Reply to Articles Now Allows Commenting

400°
3d ago - Following up on our last update of being 100% ad-free for all Registered Users, we have recently updated the backend to patch the Heartbleed Bug, remedied the activation e-mail issue users reported and also fixed the Quick Reply box below each article.

For those unaware, if you click on any article headline from our main page, you can open it in Article View (versus Forum View) and now type a comment in the Quick Reply box (pictured below). Feel free to give it a try if you wish in this article!

Finally, we still have a handful of items to tackle on our to-do list since the upgrade but we're getting there... so if you have any new ideas or suggestions feel free to share them in our ongoing Forum thread and we will do out best to make them happen in coming months and enjoy!

1200°
77w ago - With the recent increase in activity in the PlayStation 3 scene we would like to bring on some new Forum Moderators here at PS3News.com.

Your responsibilities would include the following:

  • Log in near daily (not just visit)... every few days at most, as we'd expect you to be a PS3 fanatic like us!
  • Make at least (1) post a week answering someone's question or helping around the boards.
  • Lock any threads posted in the wrong Forum section directing them to repost in the proper one.
  • Lock any new (duplicate) threads started on existing topics, for example we have an ongoing thread for Rogero CFW so direct users there and close their new threads started on it.
  • Issue a verbal warning to those who break the Site Rules (only extremely blatant/obvious cases, the less serious offenders you do not have to worry about)

PS3News.com Forum Moderator Perks:

  • You will receive the Forum Moderator status title, or the ability to change it to what you wish.
  • You will see the least amount of ads while browsing the site as appreciation for your assistance.

1100°
131w ago - This is just a quick PSA that we have now completed work integrating the PS3 News Quick Style Chooser into our Forums, Portal and 17 Subdomains hosted here which allows you to change the colors based on your preferences while browsing the site each day.

It can be found in the bottom left corner of each page here, and we will continue adding Styles to it frequently.

If anyone wishes to take a screenshot like HeyManHRU did HERE and fill in the colors you'd like to see we will do our best to add a Style under your UserName to pick from as time permits!

Finally, we are still offering $100 US for a new Site Logo... so far we have had a lot of GREAT design ideas in the ongoing thread with the criteria outlined below:

  • The logo should look decent with a transparent background, or able to be made that way upon being selected (most are).
  • The logo design should be unique so that when seen the first thing that comes to a viewer's mind is our site, not "Sony" or "PlayStation 3" so try to avoid using pics of the PS3 itself or...

297w ago - Sony has launched a LittleBigPlanet news site (linked above) today. The site aims to keep us up to date with the latest LBP goodness, either direct from Media Molecule, Sony Computer Entertainment, or from the community.

Per SackBoy103: LittleBigWelcome!!!

Welcome to the new LittleBigPlanet News Site - your destination for anything LBP.

Our goal is to keep you up to date with the latest LBP goodness either direct from Media Molecule, Sony Computer Entertainment, or from you, the community. Since we revealed LittleBigPlanet at the 2007 Game Developers Conference, the team has been working hard - creating the game, touring to game events and conducting interviews with our favorite press - and as we reach the homestretch its time to make time for our fans.

Our LBP fans have made so many amazing tributes to LittleBigPlanet, and we'd like to share what we see and know with everyone. So stay tuned for categories like "LBP 101," "SackBoy in the news," "LittleBigChallenges" and much, much, more...

For now, the news site will keep you informed, educated and hopefully excited about our release in October, but eventually, our website will evolve into something much bigger and better to support our community of Players, Creators and Sharers.

Finally, this...
