Bitmob 2.16 is live: A few fixes and improvements

This post has been edited by the GamesBeat staff. Opinions by GamesBeat community writers do not necessarily reflect those of the staff.

We just updated Bitmob with a few tweaks and fixes:

  • You can edit your own comments again. Sorry we dropped this function by accident with our last update!
  • When you put a URL in the comments, it should consistently hyperlink now for easy clickin'.
  • You can reply to all comments now, even though replies will only go one level deep. So if you reply to a reply, it will just appear at the bottom of that mini-thread.
  • If this is all working correctly, you should get an email notification (unless you opt out via Account Settings under your Profile tab) when:

    • Someone comments on a story that you wrote.
    • Someone replies to your comment.
    • Someone adds another reply to a comment you've already replied to (sort of like Facebook's commenting system).
    • You "subscribe to this comment thread" (by clicking the link at the bottom of the comments, below the "write comment" box).
  • Before, if any writers used a headline that started or ended with quotation marks, our system would delete those for some unknown reason. This is fixed now.
  • A very tiny handful of profile pages were broken, and their users couldn't access them. This is fixed now.
  • Other miscellaneous bug fixes and minor tweaks that will make our lives easier while working on this site.

Note: Embedding video is a little wonky right now, and we're not sure why. We're working on this! In the meantime, if you try embedding a video and it doesn't work, but we're editing the article for you to put on the front page, we'll fix this in the backend. That's what she…never mind.

Also: Reminder about stuff!
