An Update on Progress: Community 3.0

Hello again, friends!

August is here, and it signals the slow close of summer, and the steady roll into fall weather…the leaves will change, the temperature will drop, and coziness will become an everyday goal.

But before fall arrives, let’s take some time to look back at the last 4 months and check in on our progress through all the updates and changes that Community 3.0 has brought us so far! Here’s a quick snapshot of where we’re at:

Short Term

  • News/Blog Carousel: Complete! And what a wonderful carousel it is…

  • Streamlining Trending Discussions: Also complete! We’ve revamped how threads/discussions are surfaced to make it easier to navigate.

  • New User Flair: This is almost complete! We’ve already introduced the ability to select pronouns, and are steady working on new nationality flair. This will be ready in the coming weeks!

  • Official Fan Art & Cosplay Submission/Gallery: Have you heard the news? We opened the submission window and gallery earlier this week! Go check it out!

  • DC Social Channel Feeds: Complete! Check out all the latest from the DC Twitter account on our landing page.

  • New Badges: On their way! This project has taken slightly longer than anticipated, but we’re very close to completion…keep an eye out later on this month, yeah?

Mid-Term

  • Selectable Avatars: This project is a pretty dense one as well, but it is well on its way! More info to come.

  • Improved Notification Settings: Complete! We cleaned up the way notifications trigger, making them more responsive.

  • Community Member Highlights: Our recently announced Community Member of the Month program kicked off earlier today! Head over to the thread and check out our very first community member highlight.

  • More Badges: Once the first batch is under our belts, we’ll be going back to the drawing board with a new round!

Long-Term

  • Live Chat Function: This one is cooking up quite nicely. We’ll have an update on this in the coming months, but rest assured it’s on the way! We did some testing with the live chat plugin recently, and were very pleased with its function and performance. Get hyped!

  • Loyalty/Rewards Program: This update will be very big, and will take a while to complete. That being said, we’re already testing elements of this concept, and the whole DC team is super excited with the vision for a fully-built loyalty/rewards program. Keep your eyes peeled for more on this as the year rolls along.

With that, I want to thank everyone for all the feedback, flexibility, and help on all of this. These updates will take time, and may come with a setback or two, but we’ll keep working hard to make this site as impactful as it can be. Keep an ear out for more info, and get excited for more site updates and enhancements!

Have an awesome weekend,
Jitsu :batparrot:
