Updates, updates and updates!

While Zorg has been away the devs has been busy,
below is the compiled lists of changes/additions that the next update will bring. It mostly consists of some user experience updates (as usual by me.)

- Clicking text next to a checkbox will check it, in most areas of the game.
- Several dropdowns and buttons, now has identical styling, instead of the browser default.
- En icon next to chat limit bar will open a clickable emoticons box, to insert/lookup an emoticon
- Smiley pack 3 added in chat channels.
- Links in chat channels will be clickable.
- Clicking usernames or links in chat popup mode, now navigates the main legacy window, instead of the popup.
- Envelope icon in friends list module will turn grey if the friend has no space left.
- Staff members/Moderators/Guides will appear the top of the list of online chat members.
- Added gang badge to names in chat channel messages.
- Other minor UI/UX cases that has been bugging me lately.

I've also attempted a fix to prevent duplicate messages to be sent to the server in Chat Channels due to lag.
However it's unlikely that there won't still appear some duplicate messages client side, because of the way the chat is coded to begin with,
... and because, oh well, javascript ain't exactly my favourite language.

MattG2 and Connor will be hosting an event in the chat channels july 6th, 5PM EST
Because they have yet to find a fitting name we'll call it the hours of:

"A bit of awesome hour, a bit of a Q&A devs, Aldo & Lynx will come along hour"

Staff will be messaging gang leaders and ask you to go over the practical details, if they haven't done so already.

For this purpose I will be ninja'ing (Is that even a word?) an update to the chat channels, so it can support commands.
(It's already on dev for those who want to check it out).
However most of them are staff only, but there is also the ever-so-classic /me command

And before you ask "Can I use /whisper ?"
No. not yet. I've run out of spare development time before the event date.
However I do have plans in mind to fit such a thing in.

Here's another ninja update today, it includes the following:

- A (hopefully) last bugfix for the friends list module.
- Rank requirement for gang votes, gang referendums will only be hidden to lower ranks if a minimum rank greater than 2 has been explicitly set.
- Enhancements to local development environments that should make testing some things much easier for devs.

Just to let you guys know what i'm planning to do next. It'll be some staff related updates, because certain areas could use some enhancements.

Putting Bongo's sneaky ninja update aside, here's a rundown of what my next update will bring.

Hoping this will have a smoother release than my previous update, and not ending up breaking more than it fixes. '

- Gmail like shift-select multiple messages in inboxes.
- Friends list expansion platinum item (+5 slots for 650p).
- Option to bulk delete friends.
- Option to disable all custom titles in forum.
- Players can be muted in wasteland chat, same restrictions as side chat applies.
- Players will receive a combat log message when their threads is being moved to another forum (Similar to edited & deleted posts.)
- Fixes a bug in job end screen that would sometimes result in 1 job being selected, even if the player had enough energy for 2.
- Fixes an issue with the "Move thread" tool that'd sometimes break inboxes for some people.
- Template module for online friends. *

* This is the only thing left on my todo for this round, still have around hundred lines of code to go.

I should be able to have it done and tested within a week or two, whenever I get the chance to finnish it.

Please keep in mind though, that I as usual cannot publish any exact release date on this, it'll be released when it's being released.
But expect it within the next 30 days.
