Noticed there were some UI changes yesterday...and today, I saw the emoticons / emojis were updated (I'll never ask for 'more' again, btw - they're organized in categories similar to what's on Twitter)
I was receiving the prompt both on my laptop and my phone; I had answered 'maybe later' on the laptop, but then noticed the phone was prompting me separately.
Did some research, and it looks like this is geared more toward phones - they're like app-specific popups (or messages). I suppose an ad could be embedded within a popup, but for the most part, these are geared toward supplying info to the user.
(On edit:) I also noted just now from replying to another thread - the software now 'auto-italicizes'... I'll explain...for those of you who are familiar with my postings, you know I like to use the '*' character in front of / behind of words to add emphasis (netiquette issue; I try to avoid caps) .
Now, if I put those in, the software will automagically convert anything between the two asterisks to italicized text. Nice.
Typing this from my phone...I just enabled the notifications, and a 'pulldown' ad immediately appeared...so. yes...it does affect ad revenue...lol.
Yeah, I don't like the avatar changes, either. Maybe there's a 'scaling=on' setting. And the 'likes' are different now...as if the system can keep track of +/- ratios (but no way to rate negatively...which is probably good)
Well, the push notifications work even when you're not on the site at all. I was out and I got a notification of quoted text. As long as your browser is up and if, maybe, you visited the site during the same session, you get notifications.
My cars been running incredible since I've got it but the other morning I come out and try to take off and Ive got no power run a diagnostic and have 5 codes pop up at once p0740 torque converter clutch circuit open p0753 shift solenoid a P0758 shift solenoid b P0785 shift timing solenoid P1860...
That's slick. Wonder if it does that with external sites, under the right conditions? (I had created a link in my 'Dana' thread earlier today, but it was to the page as a whole, not a specific section)
You know, if the mod(s) doing the updating want to be proactive and post a summary of updates in the future, I'm sure some of us would be glad to do validation testing!
