Downloads for everyone!

Posted 30-10-2014 at 17:57 by ben (A day in the life of the FIAT Forum)

Our downloads library has always been somewhat mischievous, with loads of people always getting the "Token Error" message.

Well, I'm pleased to say the whole system has now been replaced with a much more robust and reliable one.

What I've also done is create a category now for every model, as well as allowing uploading!

So - if you have a manual, guide or something else useful you want to share with your fellow model owners, simply upload it...

Chat upgraded

Updated the chat system to run a lot more smoothly.

I know it's not the most popular of features, but at least I can say it works now

Backend Update

Boring one this, so I'm not going to bother doing a full release note.

Just random bugs fixed and a nice new icon in the "Who's Online" list.

Still doesn't actually say where they are though, which I hope can get sorted out soon.

Little bit of optimisation

Posted 30-03-2012 at 11:21 by ben (A day in the life of the FIAT Forum)

Chat system has been further optimised - now uses memcache to store online user lists and friend lists.

Before we needed 1 query per person per minute (to load the online statuses of their friends) - now it's 1 query (and it's a tiny one) total per minute ...
