The following list shows all changes made within the last year. All entries are written by Scott Hardie.

November 30, 2019: Lucky cats now expire after 4 days instead of 7 days.

November 30, 2019: Player-created goos no longer earn bonus points from Shiro the lucky cat.

September 2, 2019: Shiro's bonus is now 15 points per goo instead of 20. I made the change for three reasons: Shiro can become an overwhelming advantage if received too early or too often, it reduces the disadvantage against new players who join later in the season, and numerically it's better in line with the current scoring system (15 is half of a difficulty rank). Thanks for the suggestion, Chris!

July 5, 2019: I fixed a bug in the Player Achievements page that was giving away the answer to a current goo in the source code.

July 3, 2019: The Pagoda now shows seconds in the timestamp of each guess, and links to the player's profile at the bottom of each player's chart. (Thanks for the suggestion, Chris!)

June 29, 2019: Two new player achievements have been added to the game, Collectors and Swift Solutions. TC has more information.

June 28, 2019: The "Unsolved Goos" sidebar no longer prompts you to solve a goo that you created. Thanks for the suggestion, Erik!

June 17, 2019: I tweaked the code on the guess form to resolve a Firefox bug introduced with yesterday's fix. (Thanks for letting me know, Erik!) If you have any problems guessing with the regular goo guess form, please let me know.

June 16, 2019: I fixed a bug that was causing guesses to be cut off after an ampersand.

February 23, 2019: The 2019 inductee to the Hall of Fame is Erik Bates. Congrats, Erik!
