New 8-Bit Funding Updates Pushed Live!

Some of you may or may not have noticed, but last night we pushed through some major updates that will help you all better maintain a community within the site as opposed to needing to go through emails and such.

Also, this update is also a preparation of sorts for the big profile update which is coming soon!

Anywhere, here's what's new!

First, In-site private messaging is now ACTIVE.

You'll have noticed this when you logged in and looked towards the top bar and saw some new text that says: "0 New Messages." You can now send messages to each user by simply typing in their usernames in the field. Easy-peasy.

It's pretty simple right now but it will ultimately tie into the new profile system in a big way, especially with regards to notifications, which are always important for simply keeping up with your favorite projects.

Second, when you view a project you'll notice a new section that says "Screenshots." This is exactly what you think it is, screenshots of the project.

A project creator now has the opportunity to upload up to three additional screenshots of their project for users to check out. This gives users who are unable to watch the video a quick glance at the project. Also included is the thumbnail project post in its original size so, for you creators out there, make sure that picture is large enough to actually see!

We've got more coming as well as a large marketing push and many many more updates and features planned so stay tuned. We know we're not the largest crowdfunding service and we know the advantages of each other service out there. Our goal isn't to overtake those other places but rather offer an alternative.

If you have any questions feel free to comment below!
