Celebrity Goo Game News
The following list shows all changes made within the last year. All entries are written by Scott Hardie.
April 10, 2021: In the Advanced Rules, I added clarifying text to the "descriptive phrase" rule: If the clue mentions that the celebrity is the wife of John Doe, then a guess of "Mrs. John Doe" is considered a descriptive phrase.
December 4, 2020: I fixed an incorrect date showing on the Browse Goos by Season page. (Thanks for letting me know, Erik!)
November 7, 2020: When a player-created goo is scheduled in advance for a specific day, the site now automatically withholds all goos created by that player for the 14 days before it publishes, helping me to avoid any timing conflicts.
October 2, 2020: I adjusted the nightly automated process that publishes goos to finish running a little faster, to make swift solutions a little fairer. (Thanks for bringing it up, Samir.)
August 17, 2020: The advanced rules have been modified: In the event of the wrong celebrity's image being used to create a goo, the images will be replaced, and the goo's deadline will be extended. This change is discussed in more length in TC.
June 12, 2020: The lucky cat Aka can now delete pending guesses in addition to incorrect guesses. Thanks for the suggestion, Samir!
