COMING SOON: QQ Generation FOUR!

An update on the new QQ Generation FOUR:

I've been working with Jon to ensure we can still create the Tabbed Surround Polls page with embedded links and Poll Index with the new forum software. The good news is that it is now working!

It looks like we will see 3 changes:
  1. The new Poll App is now much faster and no longer needs to 'scrape/read' the Poll Threads for certain info, very slow (so we may see more frequent Poll updates)
  2. There will be an additional 90+ polls in the new forum Poll Index with zero votes (A quirk in current QQ polls is there is zero data unless at least one vote is posted, hence these polls were not visible)
  3. I have proposed (and completed coding) a feature where users can download a PDF version of each Poll Summary:

Example: On each Tabbed Poll Page there will be new new 'Download Poll as PDF' link (see bottom right):



Clicking on the Link will download a PDF version of the current Poll (example for HiRez Poll):
https://reva.blob.core.windows.net/images/QQ Hirez Poll.pdf

I think this may be useful for members like me that like to mark which releases we have or which ones we're seeking to buy.

UPDATE: It won't be long now, probably sometime in the next 2 weeks we'll be doing the conversion. I am still waiting to hear from our web host. As I said, we'll probably be closed for a few days, then reopen with the new software.

When it first comes up, it will be fairly generic, but over time we'll get it looking more custom. So don't get too discouraged if things are missing. They might be back, they might not be.

Whatever we can do we'll do! After all, we do NOT want to disappoint Snood™! :smokin

Should we back up messages in our Inboxes (and/or Outboxes), Jon, or will those survive the transition?

Looking forward to QQ v4! Thanks for continuing--and improving--this amazing resource!

PM's should be fine. No need to back up. (y)
