WebFlake Feature Plan

Keep up to date with what we have planned for WebFlake going forward!
  1. We'd like to encourage user interaction and contribution by giving recognition through medals, badges, trophies, etc. Bragging rights, if you will.

  2. Current Staff format is likely to be adjusted. May introduce new "sectional moderators" that will be assigned to specific software categories.

  3. Mountains was a huge success, after our latest IPS upgrade we'll start planning out our style and latest custom skin.

  4. Implement and customize WebFlake's very own Feature Plan, modeled after the IPS4 Feature Plan.

  7. Let's add a bit of flair to WebFlake. We opted to utilize the default theme with a few necessary edits in order to allow ourselves to focus on potential bugs with the site and immediate upgrades. We're now nearly two weeks removed from our official launch of the IPS4 version of WebFlake; time to shake things up a bit and put together a custom theme.

  8. WebFlake's supporters are essential to this community's future. We'll be exploring additional options for expanding perks and advantages for our Donators to not only make donation worth it more than ever, but as a continued 'thank you' to those who continue to support us.

  9. Upgrading to IPS4 was a huge step forward for WebFlake and long overdue, even. Site administration and moderators worked tirelessly to ensure that any applications / hooks (plugins) that were being used on the 3.4 edition of WebFlake were available for IPS4 or at the very least, had a reasonable alternative. WebFlake did leave a few features behind but nothing we couldn't do without for the sake of continuing to provide a stellar and valuable service to its community.

  10. WebFlake needs to leave the stone age. Plenty of our users have found us via a simple Google search but just as many find us by way of our semi-inactive social media pages (Facebook and Twitter). A big step to increasing our social media presence would be to offer SSO (Single Sign-On) solutions that will allow you to sync your Twitter and Gmail accounts with your WebFlake account. This will be completely optional, of course. We'd also like to display a Twitter feed on the site and offer more tools to interact with us on social media during downtime and just for every day use!

  11. By default, IPS4 only formats usergroup names / titles in a small number of sections on the site. By addon or by customization, WebFlake will be formatting its usergroup names and member titles.. site-wide.

  12. On June 13th, WebFlake will be taken offline to upgrade our hosting environment, which is primarily our resources and new server. WebFlake will be much faster, much more responsive, and should offer better uptime at more affordable rates.

    We're excited for the big move as it will accommodate the demand of IPS4 and our ever growing database.

  13. Opted to utilize a similar design to the IPS Release Notes for WebFlake. Enjoy!

  14. Once this page is available, users will be able to submit applications for Junior Moderator, Support Team, and Uploader roles. Only Staff will be able to view these applications and users will be able to engage in conversation with Staff via comments for their own application.

    Available roles to apply for are subject to change.

  15. Nothing special but we think it'll add a nice touch to the site until we upgrade to IPS 4.2 (where this feature will be default).

  16. We don't yet have an ETA, likely won't happen for a few weeks yet, but our intention is to upgrade WebFlake to IPS 4.2.x and all of our corresponding applications and plugins. We're not yet certain how much of our custom theme will continue to function with 4.2 so we may have to switch to a public theme or stick with the default IPS theme.
