I think it would be a neat feature for hubs to have an optional 'recent updates' panel on the page for BYOND Members. It would basically serve as a list of entries that developers could add to when they make updates to their game, to list what was changed/added. Players for the games could 'Watch' the list for updates, like they do blog posts/etc, and it could notify them via pager of when their watched games receive updates. (They're already notified of when there's a downloadable update on the hub, but it doesn't tell them what's in it, nor does it work for games which are not downloadable.)

You could also put something similar to the medals list on the front page about recent BYOND game updates, which would help those games get a little more noticed without having to resort to spamming the Members blog page.

Just a little idea I had that I wanted to share.

Neat idea! We'll be doing some website updates in the next few weeks and we'll give this some consideration.

Something I was thinking of today, and something a bit related to this: Would it be difficult to "port" the bug reports system in place here to hubs? I don't know how many users would use it, or how many developers would, but it would probably be useful if it's not difficult.

Yes, the system is very modular and could be made to work with individual member pages or even hub entries. We've just gone with one tracker for the time being since it is easier to manage that way, but if there is a real demand we could consider this.

Actually, that would be a neat Idea. That was we could have a system of bug reporting for individual games instantaneously instead of having to create a forum with a "Bug Reports" section never intending for the forum to get big in the first place.
I'm all for everything said here so far. Would make my life slightly easier haha.

Just want everyone to know that I am writing this from my new tablet/touchscreen laptop :D
