Groundspeak Release Notes

Mensagempor MightyReek » quarta set 30, 2009 12:35

A primeira coisa que faço quando arranco com as páginas web do Geocaching é olhar para a página de entrada dos forúms Groundspeak, logo para o primeiro separador "Geocaching Announcements" e ver a data do último post para ver se há novidades.

Mensalmente costumam ser feitas modificações no modo como as coisas funcionam no Geocaching.com, alterações a Guidelines, etc.
Todas essas alterações são anunciadas no tópico Release Notes que depois direciona para o post onde são descritas as ditas alterações e onde se podem comentar.

Eu já tinha dado por isso e comentado no ultimo meetup... mas pensei que era normal e eu é que nunca tinha testado. :oops:

O que dava mesmo jeito era aumentarem para 750 ou 1000 caches por PQ... pronto, 600 já não era mau.

Outra cena que também dava jeito (esta mais realista) é na pagina http://www.geocaching.com/pocket/, na coluna "Name" onde aparece (500) Nome_da_Pocket_Query, aparecer em vez do (500), o número de caches da PQ, por exemplo (734) ;))
yeah, yeah, I know: just send an e-mail to bla, bla,bla mas acontece que... ainda não me apeteceu!

Não sei se serei um patinho feio, tão diferente dos outros, mas a verdade é que a mim, 3 PQ por MÊS, chegam e nalguns meses sobrarão. Agora, que tivessem 1000 caches em vez das miseráveis 500 com que o imobilismo da Groundspeak nos presenteia há pelo menos 5 anos, isso dava jeito.

Re: Groundspeak Release Notes

Mensagempor MightyReek » quarta jan 13, 2010 08:23

Mais uma actualização. Com coisas boas e outras más...
Tópico original

Site Updated! And GreaseMonkey...

With the latest release of Geocaching.com, we have modernized the site to allow us to move forward with future projects in an effort to better address the needs of our users. In doing so, some third-party tools, such as GreaseMonkey Scripts, may no longer work because of changes to the underlying structure of the site. We regret that some browser addons will break but it was necessary for us to make these changes ahead of the site localization effort we have planned for this year. Localizing will enable us to provide the non-English speaking community with a more friendly site by translating common pages and navigation into various languages.

We recognize that the GreaseMonkey scripts in particular serve a legitimate need in many cases, so we plan to integrate the most popular scripts wherever possible to render them obsolete (with kind regards to their creators).

Design Changes and Bug Reporting

We have attempted to seek and destroy all the bugs associated with the update to the look and feel of the website, however it is perhaps not realistic to claim we found them all. If you discover any issues please report them here with your browser type and version, along with a description of what you were trying to do when the bug occurred. As always, please open new threads for issues not related to this release. Thanks!

And now the release notes:

13862: Default cache submission to 1.5 terrain stars
Cache submission now defaults to 1.5 star terrain for all geocaches

A gente já sabe como tu és, ainda encravas o GC todo, e afinal os hómes tiveram tanto trabalho a ajeitar aquilo tudo. :twisted:

PS: A informática, não se resume apenas ao botão "Onofre" do vibrador de azeitoneiras (convém indicar que é de azeitoneiras, ainda aparece algum tarado...), sabes que aquilo tem tipo um texto, tipo aquelas cartas que o Filipe me envia, com coisas vergonhosas... mas escritas nesta molega, depois eles amanham o palavreado todo e aparece a esta geringonça aqui nas fucenheiras . Modernices!!! :mrgreen:

[on-topic] o que me abala mais é as cenas do macaco, algumas davam bastante jeito, as pqs serem de 500 ou 600 whatever...

E é muito bem feito... Acabou, acabou!

EDIT: Continua tudo igual [B)] as Locked caches (caches "arquivadas" pela groundspeak)não se pode fazer logs de espécie nenhuma, tal como acontecia anteriormente. As caches arquivadas por nós continua a ser possível.

E acabadinho de sair:

The site will go down this afternoon (PDT), for the regular monthly release.

Apart from the bug fixes listed here, the development team has implemented a number of changes which we expect will improve performance and stability of the site. This being a holiday weekend in much of the world, it is important for us to get new code out in advance of what is expected to be a very busy weekend for Geocaching.com.

O gc.com está em baixo para a seguinte lista de actualizações:

Post original



Lost & Found

The full Lost & Found companion site is live! Visit the site to watch videos (more added each week) and share your own geocaching story with the community. You can also nominate logs written by other geocachers by visiting the log on the cache page and clicking "Nominate this log as a Lost & Found story".

Official Blog of Geocaching.com

The new blog, Latitude 47, is now live and features regular content about geocaching and geocaching-related news. Check it out and be sure to vote in the weekly caption contest to win a barely-coveted geocaching prize!

Trackables Collection

Has the list of Trackables you are "holding" grown out of control? For those of you with a collection of geocoins or mileage-tracker bugs we have added a new virtual collection to your profile. More information can be found in the Trackables Collection knowledge book.

Language Translations

This one is exciting for us. For the first time we are able to offer site translation in 5 major languages; including German, French, Portuguese, Czech and Swedish. This is a work in progress, so not all text and navigation has been translated at this time, although many of the key areas of the site have been. We will continue this localization effort until all areas of the site have been translated in these languages, as well as add entirely new language options down the road. You can select a language preference in your profile and in the footer on every page of the site. Many thanks to the geocachers who contributed their time and knowledge to this effort!
