Quick Update

Posted December 4th, 2012

I've just finished the new scoreboard. Scores are calculated differently now because of the new actions the site is capable of. Your score is calculated as:

( (codes added * 4) + (codes modified * 3) + (codes deleted) * 2) + (codes verified) * 2) + images added + images deleted

We continuously work on the site, so see what we're up to by checking out the changelog


Image Upload

Posted November 20th, 2012

We're now beta-testing a new image upload script. If you're on a product page that does not have an image associated with it, you can find one online and then just drag the image over and it will automatically upload.

Check it out!

Code Modification Tools

Posted November 15th, 2012

We have just released our code modification tools. You can now modify codes and submit codes for deletion if you feel they do not meet our standards.

If you are logged in, you can also mark codes for verification. Verified codes are products that have proper titles and barcode numbers.


Advanced Search

Posted November 13th, 2012

I'm very pleased to announce the release of our full-text search function. You can now search for items using words instead of just UPC codes.

As always, please report any bugs to us. Actually, our e-mail system is down right now, but we will be releasing a feedback section soon.

We are also working on our moderator control panel, so that users and submit deletion requests, modifications to codes, and add images to codes already in the database.


Quick update

Posted November 4th, 2012

This is just a quick update regarding our new launch today. As expected, we had a few bugs that we had to iron out. For the most of the day, users could not register, codes were not being looked up properly, and the API had some issues.

These issues have been fixed, as far as we can tell, but there are still a few small bugs to iron out, most notably the scoreboard on the left hand side.

These smaller issues will be resolved tomorrow.

On another note, since the changeover, we've seen a huge reduction in server load. The average has gone down from over 150% to around 20%.
