Is it possible for relative newcomers, such as myself, to get in on the Beta action?

Justin,
So far it is great and I haven't found a glitch. Question - Some of the original quizzes that I wrote were fill in the blank quizzes. Is there anyway to move those into the Kerblunk category? Sherry (Charcoal)

Mr. Sploofus, Sir, I am truly impressed. Whether you realize it or not, this new program IS webtv compatible!!! Even the drop menus work with my webtv. If I could do a cartwheel, I would. Would you settle for an extra kitty cat?

Thanks, Justin! I've just been trying to check everything out. It's easy to get lost at first. Do you have a plan for restoring the "Sploofus Island" picture at the top of the screen? I kind of miss it! It would feel more like home!

Sorry Gfawkes - the Beta testing is only open to the folks who signed up ages ago! But the testing phase will not last forever, eventually 2.0 will be the only Sploofus for us all!

And Charcoal - that is a great idea about translating FITB quizzes into Ker-Blunks. Use the little green "bug" icon at the top to offer suggestions for enhancements too!

Now I am off to edit all of your new Ker-Blunks and Trivia Squares! Get to writing you beta testers!!

Is there a way to set up your screen so the WM's will show without scrolling? I'm running Firefox.

Just click on "View Online Players" at the bottom of the page and a list shows up. It is sorted by level but you can change that to alpha.

The only glitch I have found is that the link to the tqod comes up "Not a valid beta tester" which has already been documented.

Mr. Sploofus, Sir, if you could check the link for us Webtv folks, I'll promise you two kitties instead of one.

Everything else still seems to be perfect!

Lisap........I did the WP about 6pm today, and unlike you, each letter and phrase were loading at a snail's pace! I don't know, maybe it's my laptop connection...but it drives me crazy!!

Hi, Tbony,

There was a narrow window of opportunity in April 07 to sign up as a beta tester, and a few weeks ago another brief window was open to sign up (for those who joined since last April). I hope beta testing won't take too long, so you can jump in and explore yourself. In the meantime, hopefully the testers will help make the new version of Sploofus "bug-free".

Loving the faster WP, all the colors everywhere, and the new kerplunk and trivia squares. Would like to have the ones I've taken marked better so I know which ones I've taken already. Or are they and I am just not seeing it?

If you've taken a Trivia Square already and click on it again, it will show as a completed puzzle.

I know that tells you- just think it would be nice to have them marked on the list itself like trivia quizzes. Overall no big complaints though- I am loving the new look, the new games, etc.

I am glad for all who are loving 2.0. I myself will not renew my membership here. Didn't realize you had to sign up. I play here twice a day minimum and had no clue that 2.0 was not for all members. Playing at Sploofus now is like being on the losing Survivor team.

It's a shame you feel that way. There are many players who have been waiting a long time for 2.0. I was fortunate to be one of the few who caught the second window of opportunity and was happy to test and put up with possible glitches to help Justin iron out the bugs. I'm sure Justin is working very hard to have a smoothly running 2.0 available to all as soon as possible. I'm sure there would have been complaints by some people if he had switched everyone to 2.0 straight away, without testing the system first. Catch 22!

I missed the second window, but agree with what Karen said. We have all waited ages for 2.0 to appear, so a little longer isn't a big deal.

I got in the first window. I'm probably not good with change, because if I had to choose now between the regular version and 2.0, I would opt to remain with the regular version. Had 2.0 been dumped on me last April, I would probably not still be on this site. There are some really cute gimmicks in 2.0, but I can see why it was delayed. It's an entirely new and different site. Hang in there, Lblewis, and be careful what you wish for.

hi guys,

When i found a post that included a link to a conversation in 2.0, i took the opportunity to look at most of what one can see without being able to log in. I do see a lot of improvements. I also see changes that, imho, are better in this version. There are some things though that I would like to comment on.

~ Being a person who's usually in front of a monitor for many hours during the day, i do know that all of the white background is going to fatigue my eyes much faster. Looking through the leaderboards for 20 minutes was enough to make me want to come back to this sploofus. (Too much white)

~ I too think that the online players listing, such as it is here, should be added to 2.0.

~ When i checked the profile of a current beta user, I noticed that her friends are publicly displayed. I'm more of a private person when it comes to some things. Is there or will there be a way to deselect friends that you don't wish to be on a public list?


Can anyone make any reliable replies in referrence to these 3 subjects?

Thanks a bunch,
Bunny

Bunny, in regard to your third question, under Site Settings, there is a checkbox labeled "Hide Friends". Turning it on presumably makes your friends list invisible.

It certainly does. Check my profile. My Friends list shows as "(private)".

Thank you for the insight.

Is there / will there be the 'Leaders By Level', 'Wager Records', & 'Leaders By Sploofactor' Leaderboard on 2.0?
Leaders By Level is very useful.

I agree that all the white background is very hard on the eyes. I am more comfortable, visually, on the old Sploofus. I can decrease the brightness on my screen, but that also decreases contrast, making text hard to read.

Uh oh. At one point I deleted all my emails from Sploofus because I assumed they were all TQOTD notifications and I always check in with Sploofus every day anyway so I never relied on emails for the TQOTD. I might have inadvertently erased an email invite?
If so is there some other way to sign up for 2.0?
Thanks,
Bill

Misty, I hope so, too.

There is much new stuff that works fine, and I hope all get a chance to play soon.

I have not been a good beta tester, because I gave up too early when my very few bug reports went unanswered. That's not a problem, as I see it. I just hope you all get a shot at the new games very soon.

I hope it will be easier for Justin to manage one version instead of juggling the two. My experience says there will be many more happy people who get to play the new stuff than there will be the usual gripes.

Good luck, and Godspeed, Justin!
