Logins, bug fixes and more

Thank you all for your feedback and bug finding. Please continue to let me know if something isn't right and I will do my best to fix it. I've made several bug fixes and improvements since I launched the new version of the site thanks to all of you who are giving me feedback.

I know logins are not keeping people logged in. My intention was to take away the keep me logged in option, because I think everyone wants to stay logged in. So that is was is supposed to happen every time. This isn't quite working though. I am working on a fix as soon as possible, but when I think I have a fix, I have to login and wait to see if I am logged out, so it might take a little bit for me to actually get the fix into the website. So please be patient with me and I will get it fixed as soon as I can.

Again, I've loved all the feedback I've been getting and I am looking forward to continue making the site better.

DVBD 2.0 released today!

First, thanks to all my testers, you guys rock! Also, thank you all for being patient while I worked on this version of the website.

In a nutshell, I've added a new design that works well on all of your devices and I added a ton of other new features and improvements. Let's stop fooling around and get to the list of changes.

  • Responsive design: this site now works well on any modern device. A lot of you use this site on your iOS device and I really wanted it to look nice for you in that setting.
  • Your colosseum results can now be tracked, just like your breeding results. It works almost exactly the same.
  • I've added a friend matching system so that you can easily find friend or people to trade gems with.
  • There is now a designated area for guides. Please tell me if you would like to see a specific guide, or even if you would like to write one!
  • The whole site layouts and designs have been looked over to make sure they all make sense and are easy to use.
  • The site search is more useful now. It also searches news articles and guides now. It will include more content in the future.
  • You can now easily see item counts in the menu for all sorts of things like breeding, colosseum results, and more.
  • And a bunch of little things that got better all over the place.

One thing that was supposed to come out with this release was the ability to sign in with your social media accounts like Twitter and Facebook. I was having some weird issues with that so I am going to work out the kinks and add that to the site, hopefully within the week.

I am really excited about this new version of the website and am excited about the direction the site is going. I am hoping that this awesome little community continues to grow and that I am able to keep making it a better site for you all.

You can expect to see more little updates to this site in the future instead of me taking months on a big release. That means your suggestions will get added to the site quicker than they were before.

As always, please let me know if you have any feedback. I hope you enjoy the new site and happy breeding!

DVBD is getting a huge upgrade soon

I haven't been doing a good job at updating the news on this website and I wanted to let you guys know why. I've been putting all my effort into creating the next version of this site. It is going to have a lot of great new features and probably most importantly, a new iOS/mobile friendly design so it looks awesome on your iPhones and iPads.

Here is a brief list of some of the features you can expect with the upcoming update:

  • A new design that is clean and easy to read. It will be optimized for mobile devices but still look great on your computer too.
  • You'll be able to log Colosseum results and see computed results on what dragons work the best for the particular Colosseum event.
  • A way to find friends for gem sharing or just friends with a common interest.
  • You'll be able to login with your social networking accounts.
  • And much more!

I am going to be ready for testers to start playing around with the site soon. If you're interested in being a tester for the site, please let me know by contacting me. This will only be open to a limited number of people, and if this is something you would want to do, I am hoping for some sort of report on things you like or dislike about the new design.

Better breeding results

In early February I added in level merging to free accounts, and then within the last two weeks I added side merging. These options allowed people to unify the breeding data so that they were not differentiated by their level or the side they were breeded on. Although these are cool features, I only made them available to those who signed up for a free user account.

This is now the default way the site will be viewed.

If you visit the site and don't have a user account, you'll notice that breeding data is now grouped together, ignoring dragon level and the side they were bred on. If you have a user account, your settings will remain intact and your view unchanged. Keep in mind you can always go into your user settings and enable or disable these features.

Happy breeding!
