Back in the saddle

Posted Dec 06, 2019 12:59AM UTC

My partner and I went on a 10-day cruise, then spent a few days in Fort Lauderdale. I put some work into the site along the way which will pay off down the road, and I'm home and back to a regular schedule now. Great things (I hope!) in store in the coming weeks. Hope all our U.S. friends had a very happy Thanksgiving surrounded by friends and family, with a happy new year ahead.

We’re now linking stories to the profiles of their authors if the authors are members of OlderGay.Men. Here’s our first linked contribution, from Larry:

Announcements of site news

Posted Nov 15, 2019 4:47PM UTC

I’ve (hopefully) fixed the bug which caused announcements of site news to go off much too often. When you see a banner at the top of a page saying “Updates have been posted to our news page“, there should actually be something new to read there now. 🙂

Six Flags Over Gerontolia

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. 🙂

Posted Oct 14, 2019 11:19PM UTC

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!
Jeff

Older men are at greater risk of serious complications from COVID-19. Please take care of yourselves and those you love.
