'Tis the season to be spooky! Read our new blog, How Spooky is Your City? Mapping and Predicting Scary Stuff. In it, @SusanCS provides a fun glimpse into using data to figure out the creepy quotient of where you live! And don't forget to check out our Digital Costume Thread to get yourself in the mood for a candy binge!

It's our last release of 2019 and this decade! For the rest of the year, we will be focusing on performance improvements, optimizing our code, along with a handful of other backend tweaks and improvements. We'll also be planning our 2020 roadmap and looking forward to your continued feedback! 

 

 

A NEW Introductions Forum

 

Getting to know your peers and networking with the right people provides some of the greatest value that we can all receive from a community like this. But it's hard to know who to connect with, unless you know who’s here. In an effort to provide a better experience, we transitioned what had become a very long 10+ page thread into its own dedicated Welcome & Introductions forum.  Learn more about the new forum here and please take a moment to introduce yourself!

 

Thank you to everyone who shared their feedback on the label suggestions for the forum! 😉

 

 

Academy Landing Page Updates 

 

The Academy landing page has also undergone an overhaul to be more cohesive with the rest of the community landing pages for consistency. You'll notice a familiar card layout and a sortable activity feed. 

 

 

Input Blog

 

You can now check out the Input Blog within the Blog area of the navigation. If you haven't checked it out yet - take a looksie here

 

 

Navigation defaults to Pinned state

 

After some feedback and internal input, we've unpinned the navigation by default. With the improved structure and navigation changes we made in November's sprint, we hope to make the Getting Started experience even easier by keeping the nav pinned out (while obviously retaining the flexibility to make unpin it). 

 

 

Miscellaneous Bug Fixes and Updates

 

  • Updated the translations on the French registration / username selection page

  • Improved a handful of text keys in the Portuguese area of the community - thanks @FláviaB ! 

  • Improvements to the Certification page

    Updated a link in the German footer
