Puzzle Baron To Do List
Bunch of little things I need to get done this month on the Puzzle Baron sites. I’m making the list public here as a reminder to myself (and as a means of motivation). Right now the major issues to deal with this month are:
- Patchwords and Drop Quotes both need a “Recent Games” function. We’ve implemented this on many of our other sites and folks have found it useful – need to do the same on Patchwords and Drop Quotes. Mainly this comes in handy for folks who play for “Percentage Solved” – due to the nature of internet gaming, an errant page refresh or a connection hiccup can result in games loading multiple times or half-loading, etc. This will give folks another chance to complete a previously loaded game so as to maintain their percentage rates.
- Drop Quotes is having a persistent problem with dashes. This one should be easy to fix but it’s been dogging me for a while – dashes are not coming out as spaces in the playing board every time, so occasionally a quote with a section like “something something – and then another….” will appear like “SOMETHINGAND”. Very annoying. (Sorry Drop Quoters!)
- Logic Puzzle label images not always fully loading. Traffic for www.Logic-Puzzles.org has really taken off lately, and all the extra load appears to be causing label images to occasionally not load completely. The fix for this is easy – I need to preload them in a better way during the initialization stage – so there should be no problems here. Just a matter of putting in some time to figure out the best method.
