Please report any annoying bugs or requests regarding website. I won't be updating the website much but if there's something that's trivially easy to fix and is really annoying, I might fix it.
Get to the spaceship!

shoutbox font
clicking "account" takes you to editing your profile, not the profile itself

You will be removed from the gather if you leave this page

Occurs upon switching away from gather page (although regardless of your choice will not remove you from gather)
Occurs when voting for captains one gather full
Occurs when picking players (sometimes)

Super annoying :(

Known issues already fixed, waiting on deployment:
- Team names not wrapping correctly on match pages
- New topic & similar buttons at the top of the page being unclickable
- Header text too bold when it's also a link.

Edit; These should be hitting the live site soon and may already be fixed when you're reading this message. :)

WHATS HAPPENING?!

Stuff we did for mere mortals
- Calender widget is back
- Font got fixed
- Staff/Group membership and task is shown on posts
- Database clean up, resulting in a faster website
- Server software update
- Website isn't garbage on mobile anymore
- Old gather music
- Links to rules fixed
- Sticky topics have different color in default theme

Stuff we did for staff
- More than one group can have access to a subforum now
- Changing score on a match recalculates correct total score now
- Moving subforums up and down works

"We", in this case, are: csm, feathermonster, jiriki and I

I removed the buggy "You are leaving..." pop-up from gathers. Please let me know if there are still problems with it and if everything else still works as expected.

Hi admins! Fellow rails dev here...

I have a feeling you can probably speed up the site by optimizing the shortpolling going on in the background. Currently this is happening on every page, even when it's not needed.

For instance: shoutbox shortpolling. You might be getting a performance hit because shoutbox shortpolling is triggered on every page every 8 seconds. But I only see the shoutbox on the home page? You can probably move the script that activates the shoutbox out of the asset pipeline and directly into the partial which renders the shoutbox widget (i.e. so the polling is only triggered on the pages which need it). This should cut down the number of requests going to your server massively.

As you know, http requests aren't cheap on rails. Each process can only handle 1 request at a time - and the request will block the process until complete. A dozen or so people with multiple tabs open on ensl.org on the same time can saturate the server quite quickly if the shortpolling isn't brought under control.

Ideally, you'd want to implement this as a simple json microservice using websockets (e.g. shoutbox.ensl.org) - shouldn't be more than a days work I thinks. I'd be happy to implement that for you if you like.

Thats of course a ...lets say naive way of implementing it.

I didn't know that. Then again I'm pretty new to rails.

You are welcome to do that! Just fork https://github.com/ENSL/ensl.org and start coding on the develop branch. When you are done, send me a pull request and I will handle the rest!
If you have questions add me on steam.

I know thats not a "major issue" or whatever but do you think thats possible to add a "ok" button or a "mute" button on the gather page so when you haven't add and the gather starts (or even when you added and the gather starts), it cuts off the music ? or a volume slider or idk something to lower the music or even cut it off when gather starts

Can you elaborate on that. I don't quite get what you are saying.

@Narkoweed If I will remember it, i will implement it. Mute button should be easy.

Done.

Also chris did some magic with the shout box. Less unexpected behavior and less stress for the server

I'm talking about this. When you send a message, you don't see the receiver until he send you an answer.

I'd love to see these meta tags added to the gather page if possible

apple-mobile-web-app-capable, content=yes
mobile-web-app-capable, content=yes



so that I can add the gather page to my phone's homescreen and have it launch fullscreen without the browser address bar

Nice idea, I've put it in the revamped gather branch https://github.com/cblanc/sws_gathers/commit/d74a192f2f1f7883af5cf6b0d61d7e35fa9bdc31

Can try it out on gathers.staging.ensl.org (but you need to sign in at staging.ensl.org)

FYI, the staging gather app will be down from time to time because I've exhausted heroku's free tier
