Early in September on the 5th, @Deimos added the new groups that were proposed in July and further discussed at the end of August. For a list of all the groups you can go to this page, the new groups are:
Over the course of several days, the Stripe donation page got reworked to use the new version of Stripe Checkout. This new version will redirect you to a page on the Stripe website instead of using a pop-up modal where you enter your details and donate. This also came with the opportunity to add recurring/subscription-based donations so that's available too now. The available options are "One time", "Monthly" or "Yearly".
I'd also like to take this opportunity to remind you that Tildes has no advertising, no investors, and is supported by your donations. So, if you can, please donate to Tildes through any of the available methods. Thank you!
As with every other month, there were also several changes made:
- Errors will now be displayed when using buttons. These were previously only logged in the web console.
- Comments that are 5 or more levels deep will no longer bump the Activity sort.
- Topic titles can now be edited by the topic author for 5 minutes after posting.
- Sub-groups you are not subscribed to will now no longer show up in your home feed if you're subscribed to the parent (the sub-groups will still show up in their parent's feeds).
- A new theme "Gruvbox" (with a light and dark variation) was added, head to your account settings to check them out.
As alluded to in last month's post a big reorganization of the issue tracker and several other components was done to make it easier to use the issue tracker, so let's go over them:
- All the label names and descriptions were gone over and updated to be clearer in what they mean and what purpose they serve. For example, previously there was a "suggestion" label that indicated a feature request that wasn't accepted yet and a "feature request" label that indicated it was accepted. These 2 have now been replaced by the Stage labels to indicate if it's an issue that should be fixed (or not) and the Feature Request label. This will allow us to designate if issues like bugs and other non-feature requests have been confirmed or not.
- A "Bug Report" template was created to guide people through the steps of creating an issue for a bug, including what information they should provide to make it easier for the developers to fix.
- The Contributing document that outlines how to go about contributing to the Tildes code was also updated, including more examples of how to use the new labels.
- We'll now start using GitLab's Weight functionality to indicate how complex issues are, ranging from 1 through 5. For a brief rundown on what each weight means, @deing wrote a little something that's also in the Contributing document.
- An issue board was also created to accommodate the new labels, there you can get a quick overview on the issues and filter them easily without doing it directly in the tracker.
