After I-A-B's relaunch earlier this week (historians note: December 12, 2016), I posted this article that asked you to give us your feedback as well as any features you'd like to see. Then Sunny came up with a great idea -- a living post that lets you know what new features we've released, what we've fixed, and what features are on deck. Full transparency!
Now, if you ever wonder what Sunny did to improve the site (or what tickets he's about to tackle), swing by this page. Also, you should know that he does releases on tiny fixes 24/7 -- minor tweaks that you wouldn't be interested in -- this page won't bother you with those things (like tweaks to the CMS which makes my life easier). He'll just let you in on the good stuff -- the bells and whistles, if you will.
Also, feel free to give feedback, suggestions, and props to Sunny at the bottom of the page -- we're open to anything that improves the site, and if you're reading this, thanks for caring about the small details.
PS: I wish I could give you all access to the CMS -- it's a fucking work of art.

[B]: Bug fixes
January 2, 2017
- [F] Back & Next Arrows
An old feature we didn't realize how many people used. Don't worry, it's coming back.
DECEMBER 26, 2016
- [F] You Got Notifications!
Now, when people reply to your comment, you'll know about it because you'll get a notification. I've wanted this feature for years
DECEMBER 20, 2016
- [F] Linked @Usernames
Now when you hit reply, @username is automatically added to response and linked to the user's profile. If you want to mention any other users, do @username and they will be linked as well.
- [F] Sorting of comments
Now you can sort the comments the way you want it. Soon, a lot of this will make it into your profile settings so it can be saved for you.

- [F] Operation: Back in Black: When you are logged in, you will see an eye on the top left. Click on it and you are in the dark world!
This feature will give you the option to toggle back and forth, from the crunchy new white layout you see now (so your boss won't catch on when you're reading at the office) to the OG all-black layout (ideal for nighttime reading in bed with the lights off). This one is a big undertaking.
DECEMBER 15, 2016
- [F] Favorites Button
This is an old feature we used to use, which has been brought back because people have asked an ability to save articles to read later. Look for the little heart to the right of the social buttons on the article pages.
DECEMBER 12, 2016
- [F] Submit Content Button
Allow users to submit articles to the site. We held off on this one for the day of the relaunch until the dust settled.
- [B] Firefox Comments Broken
FF/IE users weren't able to comment on the site. Now they can.
These are the fixes and features you guys requested. They're not listed in order, they're listed for tracking purposes. Some might take longer than others due to the depth of each task.
