I haven't gotten one either, though I haven't gotten notice of a Question of the Day in a couple of months, either. Hope it shows up soon, because I've very curious to see Beta!

Please use the Report a Bug link at the bottom or the green bug icon at the top to report an errors you encounter, or to place a suggestion.

We'll all find things we like and find things we don't like. Right now we are hoping to get as many ERRORS reported as possible. Be sure to post your suggestions as well as any errors you find

Also - can someone PLEASE create a Kerblunk or a Trivia Square already so we can play it? LOL!

Thanks!

Justin, nice work!

Could you enumerate the changes?

1. Kerplunk

2. Trivia Squares

3. Dashboard

??

I was hoping for a big change in the Word Puzzle system...more puzzles, the chance to author some, etc. this was discussed pretty regularly and I thought it was baked in the cake. Is that still possible?

also, this forum chat function is a layup to upgrade. Users can put pictures, etc into posts. PM me if you want some thoughts.

I cannot figure out how to get my answers into the squares on the Trivia Squares game...they will not appear if I type them individually into each square, and putting them in the box on the side that shows up and clicking on "check" does nothing either. I don't see any instructions...can anyone help?

Hey Justin, I just put a kerblunk in and the launched screen said 'there are 43 quizzes ahead of this one' - so an awful lot of people have been making kerblunks already - I'm surprised none have come through! Unless it's in the same queue as the normal quizzes? In which case it might be a while before any come through, methinks ...!

Lisa, if you type it in the box and hit check and it does nothing, it means you have an incorrect answer. It will enter into the grid if your answer is correct. Hope this helps!

Just a question for the future, since I'm not qualified for 2.0 Beta. And yes, I know I'm opening myself to all sorts of cavewoman remarks - hopefully you guys are having too much fun to waste time with them - but will 2.0 in the final form for all of us work on Windows 98?

Great new Sploofus! I understand about reporting Bugs in the system, but is there a place to make suggestions about keeping some of the original site's approaches. The 2 that I would like to see in 2.0 are (1) allowing a dropdown in Messages like there in now, instead of having to open every message to see the comments (the rest of the new message site so far appears to be greatly improved), (2) Listing only 1 new quiz from any author on the Most Recent page, as is now done in old Sploofus. Otherwise we will have what is happening on 2.0 now, with 1 person having 7 of the 20 quizzes listed.

smaug
Smaug  (Level: 141.2 - Posts: 2772)

I agree with the flyover box on the message list, its a timesaver.

Sploofus Editor
Sploofizz (Editor)  
Wed, 26th Mar '08 9:41 AM

The roll-over box on messages has already been suggested. The request to return the plus sign for recent quizzes was also requested, but Justin chose not to implement that one as there are now dozens of new ways to find quizzes - there are lists of "related quizzes" and "quizzes by that author" on so many pages, and the lists of quizzes are almost all "expandable" to see lots more than the list first shows. Keep playing around on the site and you will discover you are not going to miss anything.

Also, if you click the "Bug Reporting" link or icon, you will see a box for "Suggestions and Enhancements". That is where you can see what has already been suggested, and place all requests there. That is what Justin is going to look at and pay attention to, far sooner then he will see suggestions here in the BBS. However, fixing of bugs will take precedence over enhancements.

The island picture has also been requested and will eventually return.

Sun, 30th Mar '08 10:29 AM

I'm enjoying 2.0 with all of the new games & features. However, I really miss being able to see who is online at a glance. While the new 2.0 has all kinds of fun bells & whistles, I think it has lost that community feel. With the old version, you could see immediately who popped up online and could interact with them. With 2.0, you have to go to the Who's Online link and scroll through it, or you can go to your friends list and it will show if any of them are online. But it is an effort to do so. I find myself switching between the 2 versions just to see who's online.

While the games are awesome, Sploofus, long ago, became more about community for me than the games and I really do miss that aspect of it. If it weren't for the ability for us to easily interact, we wouldn't have had the sploofus conventions and have a float planned out here in Idaho.

Just my 2 cents.

Lodi

Suzer22  (Level: 165.6 - Posts: 1982)

Eesus - click on the big Sploofus logo and then at the top of that page, on the right, it will list every one of your friends who is online (if you have asked them to be your friend and they accepted!)

Also, when you are in the BBS (and other places) there is a little green dot next to names to show you they are online.

But I don't know of any way to 'interact' with people directly here, except in the Shout Box. And then, only the folks who are in that room are "shouting" anyway. How else do you interact?

I also think the Groups are supposed to be a place we should be checking early in our visit to see what our friends are up to! They have a very nice community feel to them, I think (or will when more folks join!)

eesusbejesus
Eesusbejesus  (Level: 75.0 - Posts: 3645)
Sun, 30th Mar '08 10:42 AM

Yes, I know all that of, thanks. But you have to leave what you are doing to find out who's online. You can't just see at a glance, like in the middle of a WP or something. Additionally, we are limited to 30 friends and mine are maxed out.

I would like the list of who is online to be an option in the footer like some of the other things we can choose. That way, those who don't like it can leave it off, and the rest of us who miss it, can have it added.

Also, does anyone know where the Give the Gift of Gold is located in 2.0?

maurlin
Maurlin  (Level: 213.3 - Posts: 2671)
Sun, 30th Mar '08 10:46 AM

I also have been keeping both versions open. There are certain things in Old Sploofus (OS) that I really like that are missing from 2.0. Also, since I'm so used to OS and know where things are, it's sometimes lots easier to use.

pepperdoc
Pepperdoc  (Level: 152.5 - Posts: 4286)
Sun, 30th Mar '08 12:13 PM

I agree with Lodi. The features, navigation, new games, etc. are wonderful in 2.0. However, sometimes I feel "disconnected," and I think it's because of that "Players Online" box at the bottom of the page. Sounds silly maybe, but for some reason I always felt there were a bunch of us playing at the same time. This may be why I'm participating in the Shout box and BBS threads more - to get that "staying connected" feeling.

Lodi,

Please put in an error report (even though it is an enhancement) in the MySploofus section entitled "For Justin Re: Friends Max", that way I'll get to it sooner and I will remember to take care of it quickly. I'll just bump up the max friends limit for Plats to = 100.

Thanks,
Justin

Thanks Justin! That would be great. Since we have the feature, I hate having to either delete or deny friends.

Because I like everybody.
