Version BbV1.3.3 going live this Saturday ( 22:33:54 WedMay 15 2002 )

The newest release is almost ready and will contain three BbGames, Hanged Man, Rock, Paper, Scissors and Tic, Tac Toe. These will be only for the Fixed and Variable boards when we launch BbV1.3.5 in a month or so. BbV1.3.5 will contain another greatly anticipated Fixed and Variable Feature only, BbChat. Everyone will be able to try the BbGames and posting by email features until we lauch BbV1.3.5. If a board is on the free plan, it will be up to the admins to decide if those are the kind of features that they would continue to enjoy using on their boards.

These features are extra board features that would use more bandwidth than the adverts could cover hosting these features for the free boards, because the games themselves do not have ads. $2.50 a month is all it takes to unlock the features that Fixed and Variable boards will enjoy. We hope that everyone will enjoy having these new features and appreciate any of your valuable feedback about potential bugs and any enhancements you would like to see.

We plan to be going live with BbV1.3.3 Saturday morning and hope you like the first BbGames we've developed for your communities to enjoy. We have a lot of other great features and enhancements on the way so be sure to check back in the Suggestions and Bug Reports forum here on the Support board to see the Upcoming Release Information changes. The potential release date we are looking at for BbV1.3.5 is a month and a half, so please try out the new features being added this weekend and let us know what you think.

You might also notice something new in your control centers after the new release on Saturday, a new button called Advertising which will enable you to be part of our own BbNetwork Board banner advertisement rotation which shows your banner for your board to people across the BbNetwork who are already interested in Mesage Boards. We are excited to be able to offer this kind of service to board admins and hope you find it to be a asset in drawing targeted traffic to your community.

Thank you for your support and feedback. :smile:

How do you pay the 2.50? Do you pay month by month, or for a year, or what? Can you mail in payments, or use a credit card? Also, is that the fixed, or the variable? I'd rather stay with my free plan for now, since I don't have many members, and I'm still learning, but I've SO SO SO looked forward to these games as have my members:sad: I'm not sure what to do......

You can pay however much you want, by whatever method you want. :smile: See http://bb.bbboy.net/moreinfo.shtml .

We don't like having to make these features fixed/variable only, but it's just the fact that they will use up a lot of bandwidth which wouldn't be paid for by the adverts on free alone.

Re: Version BbV1.3.3 going live this Saturday ( 15:22:23 FriMay 17 2002 )

You said that admins will be able to choose whether or not they have games accessible. Is there a way to control that on the user level?

I want to be able to provide access to games to people who have earned the right but deny them to people who haven't. (For instance, my board is associated with a writing site, and I want to use the games as an incentive to get my members to write more frequently. If they write, they can play. If they're bums, they're locked out of the games until I see that they've written again.)

The options will be basically "on" or "off". :smile:

What you could do, though, is to only give out the URL to the games to people who you want to visit them. You can totally remove any links to them from your board, and just post them in a private forum or something. :smile:

Good idea, but these folks are just wily enough to get access once, save the bookmarks, and then start slacking again.

Thanks anyway! :smile:

In that case to have the amount of control you want gracef I would put them in a private forum and they won't be able to do it like that if they aren't allowed in. :wink:

I think it's going to be terrific too.

Come to think of it, I'm pretty darn happy with this place so far. I have lots of features at my fingertips that I could never get at that other place (pitooey! :eek: ). And the service is stellar. Even on a Friday night, someone was able to at least look at my bug and confirm that I wasn't just seeing things.

You guys rock! :thumb:

Thanks gracef! That really means a lot to us here that you and others are so happy with the system and that having someone here running Support is appreciated. :smile:

BbBoy takes Sunday's off, but he does still show up a couple times in one day just to make sure everything is running like it should be and that no one has any major problems or something like this that needs looking into. :smile:
