List of who liked

Posted Aug 09, 2019 2:26PM UTC

Each picture’s page now has a list of who liked it. Please keep rating pictures so we can see more of this in action.

Thanks,
Jeff

Collections of favorite pictures

Posted Aug 09, 2019 1:58PM UTC

Images rated with more than two stars now appear on your profile. (See mine for an example.)

Image ratings

Posted Aug 08, 2019 11:08PM UTC

I've just added ratings for pictures on the site. A few caveats:

  1. Ratings are currently showing only on the picture's dedicated page (found, for example, by clicking "More information..." in a photo gallery).
  2. Due to bug, ratings only show up when the page is reloaded. A note on the page alerts you to this.
  3. I'm not yet doing anything with the ratings. You'll soon be able to sort images by popularity and see the images you and others have rated on your profile pages, but for now the average rating just shows on the picture's page.
  4. I haven't started porting existing ratings from the old site yet.

This is another feature I quickly half-completed to have it out in time for tomorrow's newsletter. 😀 Even though you don't get much for the effort right now, I'd appreciate it if you take the time to rate some pictures so we have more data to work with this weekend.

Thanks...

Menu fixed

Posted Aug 01, 2019 10:30PM UTC

The drop-down menu at the top of each page was broken for a few days. It should be working now.

Short downtime

Posted Jul 30, 2019 1:41PM UTC

The site will be down for a few minutes this morning for a database migration.

Update: We’re back online. Let us know if you spot any problems.

Messaging system

Posted Jul 26, 2019 2:06AM UTC

OlderGay.Men members can send each other messages now. I've been working hard on a messaging system and still have features to add – most importantly, email notifications of new messages are failing in production, so I've turned them off for now – but the basics are in place. You'll find a form on each member's page you can use to drop him a line and a "Messages" link in the site's menu to take you to your inbox.

I rushed to get this out in time for Friday's newsletter, so it's not been formally tested. Let me know if you spot any problems. Hope you enjoy it!

Pages loading partway down

Posted Jul 20, 2019 2:05PM UTC

I believe I've fixed the bug which caused some pages to load partway down the page. If you still see pages that don't load at the top of the page, let me know.

Profile information

Posted Jul 08, 2019 1:35PM UTC

We have enough real users now that I removed the automatically-generated ones. In the process of creating test data, your profile may have had a nonsense description added and a random location assigned. You can fix it by clicking "Edit profile" on your profile page or "Settings" from the menu on any page (in both the dropdown menu at the top and the menu at the bottom).

And while you're at it, upload a profile photo if you haven’t already! We'd love to see your smiling face. Or smiling whatever. 😉

Prime Timers chapters

Posted Jun 26, 2019 7:19PM UTC

We’ve added all the Prime Timers chapters to our Groups section and removed the automatically-generated groups, so you should start to get a better feel for how groups, events, places, etc. will all work together.

Welcome, testers! 🙂

It’s wonderful to have you here. Please have a look around and click “Help” at the bottom of any page to share your ideas and report any problems you find.

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