Updates and Begging Cups

So I just pushed some updates for the app, the biggest of those being

  1. Your avatars show again!
  2. Twitter changed its API other day and I was still using one of the old calls. It turns out those pictures are pretty important.

  3. You may notice a form on left hand side of ranking page with a bunch of metal and material names in them. These are the new tiers.
  4. Participants are placed in theirs based on their reading history. This feature was added so that even if newer readers can’t compete with the higher level readers, they can still win their tier (or even better get promoted to the next tier~). I’ll add another post tomorrow showing the tiers, how they rank, and their ranges.

  5. I added the language sort back in.

However, it does not yet rank you by your reading in that language and I do intend on fixing that.

And that’s about all that’s worth mentioning.

Todo list: Undo in app (I swear I keep forgetting about this), Do something when you’ve met your goal (this too), Tweet when you get promoted to the next tier, fix ranking for language sort

Begging Cup

As you all may know, I am a jobless hobo college student so I’m usually pretty strapped for cash. The sever for the contest runs about 120~140 dollars a year and I would love it if you guys could help me out with the bill. We are completely fine for the rest of 2013 however without any help I will not be able to pay for 2014. Please donate anything you can, I would love to keep this contest going for as long as possible!

EDIT: I will keep a running list of donators here, If you don’t want to be listed let me know. I will also let you guys know when we’ve reached out goal.

Current status: 100% to goal!

Possible (read: very likely) Schedule Change

The current schedule was made in 2011 and we never got to test it but recently I noticed one glaring flaw, There is no whole month summer round. Why would that be a problem you ask? Well the last whole month summer round we had was the most epic thing ever (seriously, look at those scores) and not having one again would be a shame. So because of that I am going to make July a whole month round.

In order to balance things out in terms of rest times and what not, I would have to make may a half round, and move the September round to October. What do you guys think? Let me know here or in the irc channel (irc.rizon.net #ajatt).
