Six Flags Over Gerontolia

Posted Oct 28, 2019 11:54PM UTC

I'm off to San Antonio in the morning for the Prime Timers convention, so this is going to be another slow week on OlderGay. I had hoped to add more publicly-visible fixes last week, but have been busy patching problems only worth reporting to the guys who pointed them out. Next week, I should have more to share. Hope everyone has a great week and that we'll see some of you in Texas!

Safe travels,
Jeff

Adding yourself to events

Posted Oct 23, 2019 4:09PM UTC

I believe I've finally ousted the bug that was stopping people from adding themselves as attendees of events. If you have a minute, please go to our events page, pick an event, and click the link that says "Add yourself if you'll be there!". It should add the event to your profile, and you can click to go back to the event and remove yourself if you're not really going. Just let me know if you run into any problems in the process.

Thanks very much,
Jeff

Still here. 🙂

I thought I'd better jump in and say I'm still here. 😄 I've been working away on the site; you haven't heard from me because the work I've been doing isn't visible to everyone. Lots of behind-the-scenes fixes and improvements have been falling into place, but they haven't been the flashy sort that are worth trumpeting. But we're still moving forward. This week, I should be solving some problems that will affect all of us directly, and I'll be enlisting your help in making sure they work as planned. Thanks as always for being part of the site.

Conversations

Posted Sep 10, 2019 1:36PM UTC

For the last two newsletters, I've tried to include links to the latest conversations on http://talk.oldergay.men/. It works in development, fails in production, and will take some more testing and research. Hopefully, it will be working for Friday. In the meantime, don't forget to stop by and see what's happening there!

Bug hunt

Posted Sep 06, 2019 9:54PM UTC

I'm going to embark on a period of fixing existing problems before moving forward, so if you don't see obvious progress in the coming days/weeks, don't worry that the momentum has stalled. I've just been adding a lot of features and it's time to take a step back and do some cleanup to make a good foundation for next steps. Thanks to everyone who has joined and added profile pictures of themselves! It's good to put faces to so many names, and it adds a welcome human touch to the solitary hours of coding.

Sincerely,
Jeff

Taking a break

My partner and I are at the Prime Timers gathering in Oklahoma City this week, so there won’t be a lot happening here. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Discussion forum

Posted Aug 22, 2019 10:48PM UTC

I’ve added a forum so we can get to know each other, catch up on what’s new in the “older gay” world, etc. It’s linked from “Discussion” on the drop-down menu and at the bottom of each page and you can reach it directly at http://talk.oldergay.men/

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Presentation of favorites

Posted Aug 19, 2019 5:54PM UTC

It's my birthday! As a gift to myself, I made a better presentation of favorite pictures. When you look at a profile now (including your own), you'll see up to ten favorites and a link that will take you to a paginated pop-up gallery. As before, you can see my profile for an example.

It's a delight to have my favorite hot men always ready to enjoy. Hope you like it, too.

Sorting pictures by popularity

You can now sort the pictures page by popularity of the picture. Keep rating to bring your favorites to the top for everyone’s enjoyment!

Event attendees

Posted Aug 11, 2019 10:06PM UTC

On events’ pages, you'll now find a link you can click to let everyone know if you'll be there. You'll then appear on the list of attendees on the event's page and the event will be listed on your profile. Please click and let us know if you'll be part of the group; it'll be great when we can meet each other face-to-face and not just online. 🙂

Speaking for myself and my partner, we'll be at the Prime Timers Labor Day Weekend in Oklahoma City and the convention in San Antonio. Looking forward to meeting anyone who can come out and join the fun.

Jeff
