Item Image Caching

  • Added image caching to item thumbnails for faster performance and loading times.
    • After first initial slow load of inventory - it will save the item images to your browsers cache for 7 days
    • The next 7 days your inventory should load much faster
    • Please note if your browser cache clears the images then it will have to re-add them to cache.

  • We are looking into more ways to improve inventory load times for the future.

Donation Page Updates

  • Donation page has got a slightly updated look!

  • We have disabled the ability to donate $1 or less due to paypal fees.
    • Previously you could donate $1 or less but wouldn't receive any ohms!

  • We have corrected the math behind the spenders bonus to correctly apply a +15% when spending $10 or more.
    • Previously this was incorrectly giving a rough 17.5% increase instead, which was not intended.

  • Discounts / Bonuses? We're gonna have 'em!
    • We will now be offering discounts/bonuses on certain outernet days for purchasing ohms!
    • Mothers day (12th May) will be the first to give a bonus in ohm purchases - a whopping 25% extra ohms!
    • These bonuses will only last for the 24 hours of the outernet holiday
    • They will start at midnight Voltra time and end 24 hours after.
    • They will stack with the spenders bonus - so tomorrow you'll be able to get up to 35% more ohms!

Additional E-mail Security

  • Account registration now checks all e-mails against common spam e-mails due to a recent surge in spam accounts being registered.
  • Please note we will be transitioning to a new SMTP relay server soon so if any verification e-mails are not sent then please try again once we confirm the change has been completed on these notices, thank you!

Shop & Item logs

  • This one is more of a back-end update however we now have logs for when a user purchases an item or opens a consumable.
    • This helps us pinpoint issues and verify purchase/opening if anything goes wrong and you do not get your item.
    • This also helps if we mis-price an item - now we have the ability to refund those who bought it at the wrong price.

Shinier Orbs

  • Orbs back-end have been refactored and now should pull item information faster while loading in the inventory.
  • They also now support unlimited items to be added inside (previously a limit of 10 unique winnable items per orb was in place)
  • This is mostly back-end again so you shouldn't notice too much, if you own a lot of orbs you might notice your inventory loading *slightly* faster though!

Notification Limit Increase

  • Notifications from the user card in the header will now show up to the amount of new notifications you have.
    • Example: If you log in and have 30 new notifications - the drop down will show all of them!
    • Defaults to 10 if new notifications are less than that amount.
    • Please note you can always view your 50 most recent notifications in the homepage!

Accessibility Settings!

  • In your settings page under Accessibility (or use this shortcut) you can now:
    • Set it so all forum posts default to the themes default color.
    • Set a minimum font-size for all forum posts
    • Remove all user-profile custom CSS

We hope that this will help with those pesky font colors on certain themes for those who have difficulty reading them!
