Getting Closer
By: Talibar Zukro , on: 01/13/2013
We are getting ever so close to our release date and a lot has gone on. Lets see what I have done in the last few days:

-Added Male and Female images of all species to the game.*
-Adjusted Image resizing so that whatever image you provide will still fit on the page without damaging the dimensions.

-When you scroll through the species and the gender, the image will change to that species and genders image.

-You can now vote up and down for a particular post. Very useful feature...
-Above the user's avatar, a link is now displayed to PM the user directly. You can also now view the user's profile by clicking on their name.**

Private Messaging:
-When you begin typing a name of a user, the field will search the database and will begin populating the "to" field with names containing the combination of letters you type in.

-Some Maintenance, Bug Fixes and Security improvements... As per usual.

Just a couple of notes:

*Species images are hard to come by. I am not an artist and at the moment, I am the only one developing this game. Therefore, some species images may not be of top quality. Also, be aware that I had to improvise as best I could with species gender. At times I could find an image for both a male and female of a particular species, other times, I just duplicated the image or found an image of one that closely resembled the opposite sex. This will be rectified in the future.

**I am not planning on implementing a "hide profile" option any time soon. If you do not want your information to be public, simply do not put anything in your profile.

Whats left to do during the next couple of days:

The Force:
-Allow a user to decide if they want the force sensitivity to be revealed to them. Please note, using this option will not "convert" your character to becoming force sensitive. If you are not found to be Force Sensitive, there will be no other opportunity in the future of becoming FS. This tool will only be available to you until January 27th. So its up to you if you would like to know if your character is Force Sensitive, or if you want to wait to be discovered IC. Perhaps you would rather live your career at this point in time without being a FS. That is fine. Use the tool at your own discretion. What ever the results are, it WILL NOT BE UNDONE.

-Need to revise Terms and Agreement for joining the game.

-Blanked out the forums, added some new ones, but still need to finish up a little on this.
-I need to finish filling in Faction Descriptions.

News Posts:
-Need to add a commenting section to the news posts. I am actually considering also adding this to the GNN news posts.

-Need to create an option for joining and leaving a faction.

-Need to add GM's to the forums. This is VERY simple and easy to do. The functions for this are already coded, I just need to do some fine tuning on the forum side of things and it will be done.
-Ability for Admin, Moderators and GM to hand out XP, Credits and OOGP for Forum Roleplays. This is also very easy to do.
-I need to implement Polls. This will be the hardest thing to implement and to be honest, I may not have this done by the deadline. Its not a necessary feature at the moment, but I really did want this done so that I can truly have a completed Forum system. So, we will see...
