Fixed an issue preventing logged out folks from viewing news. Also some QOL improvements around notifications and ARPG submissions.
Some minor UI improvements around blogs. Friend feed fixes/improvements. Haunted Faire time changes (extending the end date of the prize shop, adding one "empty" day between costume contest entries/voting).
Fixed an issue which was preventing unregistered (or not logged in) folks from seeing/accessing the site -- sorry about that!
Minor UI and appearance updates. (Also changed date/time information to a more readable format on news, comments, etc.)
Also introducing a dashboard page! https://astralstory.com/home -- For now, it lists daily activities (the Treasure Hunt button will turn green when you can play, and red if you've already played this period, but is gray if still locked), and the feed will tell you when your friend(s) post a blog! Thank you to the anonymous suggester for suggesting a user feed!
Daily quests have been added at https://astralstory.com/quests/daily -- I would like a bit of feedback on these, namely: - Is 24 hours a long enough period of time to complete a prompt? (Would 48 hours be more reasonable?) - Should the minimum requirements be lower (for example, a sketch for art/a shorter word count requirement for writing)? Please feel free to send in a contact form or provide feedback in the Discord!
The masterlist has search functions now! You can look for a particular species, a particular user's Astrals, or Astrals that allow/disallow gift art (or any combination of the three parameters). These were all the things I could think of that would be useful, but please feel free to suggest other search parameters if there are others you would use!
Minor updates to the bestiary over the past couple days; some small visual clean-up and a few bug fixes!
https://astralstory.com/info/discord - The Discord info page has been moved on-site (was previously only in a Discord journal). Its navigation link has also moved from Support -> Community
I have also completed some backend QOL improvements that won't be readily visible, but stuff like the job board updates are more automated and streamlined now, and should always swap over immediately at midnight at the end of the month (instead of waiting for me to manually do them)
- You can now see if you have completed the challenge for your free MYO yet or not, by going here: https://astralstory.com/activity/freemyo The form to submit is also available on-site now, on that page!
- Astrals can also be transferred on-site to other users: https://astralstory.com/astrals/[ASTRAL-ID#]/transfer
- Currency can now be transferred to other users on-site via your inventory: https://astralstory.com/inventory
You can now make people your friends! Or block them! Whichever you would prefer! As of now, staff members (admins and moderators) cannot be blocked. If you ever have an issue with staff, please directly email us. And you can see all of your friends here: https://astralstory.com/friendslist - this has also been added to the navigation under "Community."
Fixed a bug which prevented profiles from being updated. Additionally, you can now use html in your profile bio, Astral profile bio, and news comments! This will only allow basic tags like <img>, <b>, <i>, <u>, <a>, etc, but should allow for more customization.
Additionally, the Terms of Service have been updated! https://astralstory.com/terms - A clause was added regarding the maximum allowed site accounts (this is limited to one).
ARPG submission is now available on-site! Job board and other similar DeviantArt journals will be adjusted to reflect this. https://astralstory.com/activity/submitarpg
The steps have been added to the Free MYO Challenge! You can view them here: http://fav.me/dd907f9
Notifications page added, and notifications exist for new news! No more wondering if a news post has been added.
Minor text fixes and additions. The Edit Astral page now includes a link to the DeviantArt journal to change their reference image.
