New Category icons:
Last February we held a contest for designing a new icon set for our torrent categories. Considering our requirements were quite high, not as many participants applied as we hoped. However, we did get several quality submissions to choose from. The winning icon set we chose was designed by Mistgun_Zero
So congratulations, and thank you for your patience and hard work these past months.
We spent quite a bit of time tweaking the original submission to get an even better result.
And I'll also take this opportunity to thank everyone who participated in the contest.Light Novels:
The new icon set also made it possible for us to to finally implement the long requested: Light Novel
Thanks to the coding efforts of brunoais, all tracker avatars will now be hosted securely on BakaSHOTS.
You can still use external hosts if you prefer, but only if they support HTTPS.
As far as the user interface is concerned, nothing has changed. Upload your avatar to any imagehost of your choosing, and if they offer only http links you will be notified that your avatar will be stored on BakaSHOTS instead. If your image url has https, it will use the provided link. Everything is set to work seamlessly, and as a result you won't see insecure content warnings in your browser because of avatar images.Other updates:
● The Lossless tag will now be represented by a mic - idea by mateka
(+2000 bonus points).
● A number of backend improvements and stability fixes.NOTICE:
We're still working on debugging the new tracker, so please submit any issues you encounter in the previous thread
, not here.
After a few days of testing the new tracker under full load we will be switching the tracker port from the current 2710 to 8443, so you will need to update your running torrents. However, this will be announced, so no changes are required as of yet.
