Mix Updates

May 13th, 2008 4 Comments

Rich, ENTP and I spent last week fixing some issues in Mix that you may have seen. Suggest a session for OpenWorld has driven steady traffic into Mix, and we’re rushing to fix bugs that people have encountered.

Virtually all of the recent fixes have been around suggest a session, which makes sense because that’ where people are congregating. Here’s a list of fixes to issues that you may or may not have seen:

I saved that one for last in the interest of transparency. Eddie (jokingly) tweeted what some of you may (seriously) be thinking:

Eddie has lost faith :(

Maybe you noticed that Dan‘s session suggestions rocketed to the top of the Greatest tab. That was me voting early and often to replicate the bug. Sorry Dan.

Before you panic, rest assured we 1) fixed the bug and 2) reset the vote count.

I also caved into demands that voting be more transparent. You can now see the people who have voted for a session you suggested, or at the first ten as of now. There’s a bug preventing paging beyond the first ten voters. No worries, it’s fixed and waiting to be deployed.

So now you’ll know who your friends are and who they should be.

Anyway, sorry for any frustration caused around bugs. Courtenay (from ENTP) and Rich have been working crazy hours to get these bugs fixes and deployed.

As always, let us know if you find bugs or have enhancement suggestions.

    Yeah, it was sort of a let-down when my vote count got slashed back down to the “real” count. Oh well, I'm still a card-carrying Friend o' the 'lab, no hard feelings.

    I don't see the “see who voted” feature you mentioned. I know it's just for my own session. Where would I see the voter list?

    Well you can thank Matt for finding the bug, inflating your hopes and then dashing them. You'll notice the only sessions promoted in this post are yours :)

    The see who voted widget is below the fold under the “Got an idea?” red box. Let me know if you don't see it there.

    Apparently, I was sleeping or just overlooked that list of users thinking they were the new users registered or something. I see it now, thanks for the lead…sorry, I'll go back to sleep now.

    I know, it's subtle. I missed it the first time too.
