    TGIF! Here’s your development news round-up for the past week!

    Player Bans November 9 - November 15

    As a reminder, the following numbers are permanently frozen accounts, and don't count temporary freezes.

    FB: 15
    Kong/Armor: 1

    The majority of permanently frozen accounts are frozen for being a shared or alternate account. This is something we actively investigate, and we appreciate players reporting suspicious accounts to us.

    If you have any questions or comments about a frozen account, please direct them through Support as the Forums are not the place to discuss account freezes, because of the sensitive account information involved.

    New Limited Items!

    A new week means new Limited Items! Here’s what’s up for grabs:


    Weekday Calendar November 23!

    Don’t be a turkey! Get ready for the Weekday Day Calendar, starting November 23 at 10 am Pacific and running until November 27 at 10 pm Pacific.


    Raid Event Next Thursday November 26

    The Technofascists are back next Thursday at 9 am Pacific.


    KanoPlay Mobile Website Updated!

    As we continue to work on our iOS apps, we are bringing the strides we make there over to KanoPlay so those of us without iPhones can take advantage of all the improvements. KanoPlay Mobile has just been updated with the most recent changes so make sure to check it out when you’re on the go!


    Separate Tab for Raid Bosses!

    During the next Raid Event you will notice that Raid Bosses now have their own tab on the Boss page, similar to how Challenges have their own space next to Jobs.

    You can read a bit more about this change and see some screenshots in this thread here.

    Happy weekend!

    Thank you @mi7ch for writing up my section of the TGIF last Friday. We were seeing some unexpected alerts with my email system and I wanted to make sure my work was backed up in case it went kaput.

    It's been an interesting week. The recent tragedy in Paris has been on our minds, as it has with many of our players. We know many people feel strongly about topics such as the international response to this and other acts of terror, as well as the policies on the handling of refugees.

    While I believe that interest in and discussion of these topics is important and necessary, I'll remind everyone that comments that paint all people of a particular religion, national origin, or ethnicity as dangerous or inferior are not acceptable. So don't be racist. :)

    We did have a player contact us suggesting we do a special item sale to raise funds for the relief efforts. I think it's a great idea -- unfortunately campaigns like that have some pretty strict legal requirements and we're not set up to handle them on short notice. However we do encourage anyone interested in helping out to consider a donation to the Red Cross, which aids in emergencies like these across the world.

    You can donate either to the National Society in your country, or to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) directly (which I have done) here . ( http://www.ifrc.org/en/get-involved/donate/ )



    Terrible Joke of the Week

    Here's your lame joke of the week!

    Why did Cinderella get kicked off the soccer team?
    Because she kept running from the ball!

    That's it for TGIF this week, everybody! Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!

    I will donate to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. Thanks for the info and your comment on the subject.

    Yeah Mitch made a mistake. Click the spoiler to see both the joke AND the punchline.

    Hmmm, I'd like some real features, to be honest. This is not very useful.

    What specifically? Just wondering.

    Mass gifting, for one.

    And crafting those 86ers' drops.

    I believe mass gifting is "on the table", so to speak. Of course, that isn't saying much. There seem to be more requests for crafting, but I don't know if that's even "on the table".

    On the table seems to mean: to be done after the IOS game is done.
  14. Jared

    Jared Well-Known Member

    That's interesting, because I believe both of these ideas were on the table before both iOS and raids were announced or even probably thought of.

    Our iOS/desktop development is separate. We're still working on feature parity on the iOS app.
  16. Aapje

    Aapje Well-Known Member

    And getting parity is easier if you stop developing for non-IOS/desktop...

    Sorry, but I'm getting a little cynical since I don't see much beyond beyond interface changes that don't help much. Although I have to give you props for some performance improvements that you did earlier, but I haven't seen much beyond that.

    Our desktop/iOS development teams are completely separate, they aren't pulling any resources away from each other.
  18. common mi7ch its time you guys think beyond ios, we have lots of android users. create a app for us also. it will help guys like me who play 70% of time on mobile

    Hi Mitch,
    There seems to be some confusion on raids. This thread says 26th (Thursday) which would be in keeping with all other raid events. But the raid tab says 29th to the 2nd.

    Can you please clarify.
