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

July 3, 2020: I fixed a bug in member profiles that was displaying an invalid date (year 0000) when the birthday is unknown.

April 4, 2020: I fixed a bug with the various Options pages where they wouldn't save if all values were blank.

April 4, 2020: Throughout the site, long comment fields offer a link to an HTML reference guide. The link was broken and out of date. It has been replaced with a new guide.

April 4, 2020: I added some further protections to public-facing forms on the site to avoid hacking exploits.

January 12, 2020: When you win a game on Funeratic, you will now be prompted automatically to verify your email address and/or mailing address before I send your prize. I have had trouble in past years with "Predict the Oscars" winners who claimed that their prizes were lost in the mail, so Funeratic members who have won games may have noticed my tendency to verify addresses before sending prizes, even when it's the same address that you've had for many years. Today's change just makes such verification happen automatically. You can simply click a link to verify; the process should take mere seconds.

January 12, 2020: You can now record your mailing address in Account Options, for receiving physical prizes from games.

January 5, 2020: Rather than registering with a binary gender (female or male) that never changes, members now choose their preferred pronouns (he/him/his or she/her/her or they/them/their) and can edit them in Account Options. I'm open to supporting other pronouns too; I added a note to the Privacy Policy for people interested in using something else. I have also removed gender from celebrity goos (the data was collected but not really used), and altered gender-related code under the hood in Rock Block as well.

January 5, 2020: This site's TLS is now provided by Let's Encrypt. I updated the Privacy Policy accordingly.

October 27, 2019: Five new items have been added to The History of Funeratic.

October 6, 2019: I fixed a typo in The History of Funeratic that miscategorized the "Storm" entry in the wrong year. Hurricane Irma struck Florida in 2017, not 2018.

September 2, 2019: Gothic Earth has been removed as a section of Funeratic.

August 18, 2019: Quantcast (a traffic analysis tool) has been removed from the website.

July 20, 2019: When a section of the site has an anniversary, the sidebar element announcing it now appears in the gray section of the site as well as in the section itself. The 20th anniversary of Thorough Movie Reviews came and went a few months ago without me saying anything because I didn't look at that section that day and I missed the message.
