This test version runs off the production database/pictures etc. So any changes made there will affect the live site.

You can view it here: [URL removed]

Here is a list of the major changes/new features.
-------------------------------------------------

- Faves & watch list related:
- - Faves can now be customized for what kind of things you are notified for on a per-fave basis.
- - New CP for managing faves, new form appears when adding a user to faves. Only pictures/stories notifications currently implemented. Others for future use.

- Pictures related:
- - Added comments mode (on/off) to pictures submissions.
- - Picture cropping feature now works again.
- - Fixed bug were re-uploading a picture in a different file format didn't work.

- Comments related:
- - Profile comments can be set to normal (like now), friends only, or disabled completely.
- - Added a simple flood-control to help block duplicate comments.
- - Major core resdesign of picture comments to be (hopefully) more efficent and less of a load on the servers.
- - Replying to a comment now bumps the comment thread to the top.

- Notifications related:
- - Pictures notices now mention content advisories for new submissions.
- - Most of the notification code has been rewritten, hopefully the new pic notifications bug was removed in the process.

- Censor related
- - Word & URL filters have been added. Can be enabled/disabled in profile.
- - Picture/story content viewing filters always apply in censor-mode rather than hide-mode to your own pictures.

- BB Code
- - Several bugs fixed. Should help with story processing.

- Story related
- - Improved processing of smartquotes.
- - Improved Unicode support so less problems with weird characters.
- - New version of the Java editor. Should work better.

= Profile related
= = Fixed a bug with non-jpeg profile pictures causing an error.
= = Fixed bug that prevented profile from being edited when profile pic/avatar uploading was disabled.
= = You can now choose your top 5 submissions to be based off number of faves, number of votes, or newest.
= = Excessively long profile text now gets scrollbars in a box so the page isn't miles long.

Does the rejection tab not show anything or is it just me?

edit: Poked around a bit, it seems that the "show all" check box doesn't do anything.

Works for me....

You mean the one on a user's "Pending" submissions page?

(For everyone else, the aforementioned checkbox is a staff-level feature.)

I mean the show all on the rejection page doesn't work (for me, at least).

When I go to http://www.fanart-central.net/user.submissions.php?get=reject&user=randomparty&show=all&submit=Submit with show all checked I get 64 rejections, but when you replace the www with rc it shows 0 rejections.

Fix is on its way.

Fingers crossed about those email notifications, on favourite artists submitting a new picture, then. It looks all right so far. My personal fave is the newest submissions options. You can now have that option of there only being your newest work up there, or based on faves, or whatnot. I praise the person responsible for doing that most highly. Thanks a lot.

I think it has, 'cause today I got an email notification saying a fave artist of mine has submitted a new pic. It made me most happy inside. It hasn't done that for a while, that notification system, so good job. And... fingers crossed it doesn't break down for a long time, huh? Thanks for that.
