    core 1.3.3. was made available earlier than expected.
    the majority of the core 1.3.3 update is now complete.
    there is currently some functionality missing from gV that we expect to have back online shortly.
    there are also outstanding styling issues that will be addressed.
    this was a much bigger job than it may appear to have been, and the mcp needs to reboot before completing the task.
    this entire undertaking should be complete within 24 hours.

    its also worth noting that as a stopgap measure to address spam... dont post the word 'kitchen'.

    this included much of the anti-spam measures we had in place. most are back in service at this time.
    core 1.3.4 has also dropped today, so looking at moving on that immediately rather than subjecting it to tests.
    we continue to work in the background...

    • altered the 'poop' bbcode used by the editors smilie interface.
      the first two characters of the code were being intercepted and converted to the wrong smilie when viewed on tapatalk
      the old code is still functional (to preserve backward compatibility) and can still be manually entered (although it shouldnt be)
      Code:
      old poop code - :poop:
      new poop code - ::poop::
    • added functionality to allow members to ignore individual threads and nodes. 'ignore' links can be found toward the top of each node and thread, while 'ignore management' links can now be found in the forum tab submenu
    • 'beautiful' style, as used in the House of Beautiful subnodes, is now available for general use.

    • made significant changes to the opcode cache. gV should run faster as a result.
    • made some backend changes to smilies. smilies now work on profile pages and profile comments.
    • reimplemented personal bookmarks.
    • testing core 1.4.0 in a dev sandbox.

    personal bookmarks functionality temporarily removed as it was causing a server error. when it is added again it will have retained all data (bookmarks) as usual.

    made further alterations to dns, specifically in regards to cookieless domains. this will hopefully result in faster pageloads. if that is not the case, please report.
