Kilgrave mK II is now live: Content Stats!

Greetings, commander!

On Friday I released the newest version of iToysoldiers: Kilgrave mK II.  In addition to all the really slick stuff that was part of Kilgrave, there’s now content stats!

If you visit your player profile you’ll see a “Stats” tab.  Click on that.  Then click the “Content” sub tab.  There you’ll see an overview of the content you’ve submitted to iToysoldiers along with some page view, comment, and salute values.  I wanted to make sure that if you’re using iToysoldiers to chronicle the glory of your miniature wargaming armies that you can see that folks are reading your stuff. The detailed statistics are largely based on the kind of information that Blogspot provides.  I figured if it was good enough for them it’d be good enough for us.

Also there’s some bug fixes – specifically new players and how their profile displays.  Now there’s no more floating headers without content. I’ve also tweaked some bits of the theme to be a bit more “what you might expect”.  Little fiddly bits (like the logout button doesn’t show up if you’re not logged in – stuff like that) which weren’t huge but needed to be addressed.

So now, Kilgrave has all the above plus what was announced here.

If your curious here’s what the Kilgrave release contains (including all marks) to date:

  1. Updated Player profiles
  2. Updated Home page for anonymous visitors
  3. Updated Stats page layout
  4. Updated Content page layout
  5. Updated Battle Stats
  6. Updated Content Stats
  7. A new Help Portal
  8. Various Bug fixes

Now I just have to get Kilgrave mK III in the wild and then I’ll be able to start work on “Ragnorok”.  Yay!  As always, if you have any comments, issues, suggestions, I aim to please.  You can email me at rob@itoysoldiers, comment here, or submit something on the Help Portal.  Zip on over to iToysoldiers and checkout the new hotness!

Carpe Acies!

Please Allow Me To Introduce Myself

Greetings, warmongers! So one of the things that I’ve really kinda done a less than stellar job with is introducing you fine folks to the wondrous possibilities of the site. This is something that I’m working on rectifying. The first step to that is a brand spanking new set of intro emails to kind of walk you through all the primary features of the site. Starting now, all new folks who register for iToysoldiers will get these welcome emails.

Now I recognize that you’re probably saying, “Rob, that’s good and all but it doesn’t really help me. I’ve already signed up and I got your sub par activation email that was out of date and really didn’t help me at all to get started”. And you’d be right if I hadn’t thought of that already.

So. If you’d like to receive the super cool intro emails in your very own inbox all you have to do is complete the form below and click, “Submit”. It’ll start the ball rolling. I could probably have done something fancy like prepopulating the form or something but since it really doesn’t need to be pimped again I figured this’d be okay. I hope it is. Anyway, here’s the form:

Get the Intro Emails

Oh! Last thing. Once you’ve gone through the emails (it’s about five days) please let me know what you think. Did I miss anything? I’d appreciate it.

Carpe Acies!
