Notifications dropdown and Dashboard redesign.
(Original publish date: Dec 21, 2012)
Sorry for the lack of updates lately, we've been busy with some emergency internal issues that had to be fixed. In the meantime, we had the chance to roll out the new Notifications feature that some of you may have already noticed when browsing the site.
The notifications area will be used to notify you of the following actions:
a) Posting a snap/comment and what RP was earned for it.
b) Gaining a new follower, and listing their name so you can check them out and decide if you want to follow them back.
c) Numerous error messages: These are only shown once, and do not get saved permanently.
d) Rank upgrades: Shows the unlocks, and tips (if any).
More items will be added to the Notifications in the future, as we create more features and functionality.
You may also have noticed that the dashboard (top bar) has had a minor redesign, and clicking your username now loads a dropdown with all the most important private sections available immediately. We have also added some extra statistics there such as total RP score, and reputation score.
