For a while now I have wanted to do something with the top part of the homepage. A bit like what I have done with the game pages. The homepage slider is always the first thing anyone sees when hitting the home page with the category section. In order to bring more focus to the slider I have had to lose the category selection for now but I hope that I can find a way to add it back in later.

The slider has far more impact now and aims to look more like the other games on the page. Also working on the slider actually led me to the cause of a bug where Javascript stopped working sometimes on pages from mobile devices. 

Because of the change to the home page slider and game pages. We have now had to start to scaling the game promo images larger then their original size, which with the heavy compression doesn't look great. So I've now upped the promo image sizes to 1120px by 628px. So I highly recommend updating your promo image for your former games. To make them look their best.

I've also changed the way the email system works. Before emails were scheduled and sent out in lots of 500 emails once per hour. The problem with this is it uses all the resources of the server during these sends. So I've now changed it so that one email is sent out every minute. This reduces the stress on the server and barely uses any resources per each send.

There's also been a fair few other minor bug fixes and plain text scoreboards requests was added too.

Thanks,
