We’ve listened to your feedback regarding the campaign calendars and now we’ve rolled out a handful of new features and improvements.
If you check out Obsidian Portal on your mobile device, you may get a bit of a shock. Instead of just being the regular site scrunched up onto the screen, you’ll see that it now fits nicely with no zooming and scrolling. We’ve heard your calls for a better mobile version and now we’re getting there.
Many of you have noticed that your tags aren’t fully case sensitive. In fact, the chosen case of a tag often seems very random. I can assure you that it’s not…but that’s not really what you want to hear. What you really want to hear is that now we will be respecting the case of your tags, so “cleric” and “Cleric” will now be distinct and you can choose your casing however you want.
The downside is that all existing tags will remain. This means that if you have a lot of pages tagged with a particular case, then switch to a different one, you will end up with two different tags. In other words, you can now end up with tags for both “cleric” AND “Cleric”. That’s probably not what you want.
That’s why we recently released DragonTagger, the bulk tag editing tool that works with our API. With DragonTagger you can quickly rename your tags to match whatever case you want. It’s not exactly fast (or pretty) but should do the trick.
We have some bad news, and some good news for you? Which would you prefer first? The bad news? Okay, well sadly enough, the caption contest going on right now in partnership with d20Monkey has to come to a premature end. On April 5th we’ll be closing the comment section and going through the hundreds of entries on a quest for the best!
Ah, now onto the good news. The good news is that the reason we’re doing so is because d20Monkey is going to be creating caption strips for us on the regular! That’s right folks there’s been such a positive response to this one we’d like to keep them coming at you in our monthly (and perhaps bi-monthly) newsletter.
The contest rules will stay the same, as you can earn some free ascendant time and get your caption published on d20Monkey.com however the cameo appearance will be a this one time only offer, so be sure to get those captions in for a shot at internet fame!
We hope you’re excited to read this news as we are to bring it to you, stay tuned to the blog for ongoing caption hilarity!
