Dreamwidth (quick) Update: 24 July 2011

Hey all -- I'm sorry about the radio silence for the past few weeks (I've torn my rotator cuff and dislocated my wrist, and have been on minimal-typing for a while). I was hoping things would improve enough for me to do a full update, but enough people have been asking that I'll at least do a quick-hits:

* Check out [personal profile] erika's first Code Tour for development news.

* For the rest of 2011, we're concentrating on Mission: Feature Development. August's hackathon is usability bugs, so if you've been thinking of diving into DW development, check out the usability Bugzilla keyword for a list of the bugs eligible for a points bounty.

* We're increasing the bounty on styles submitted to [site community profile] dreamscapes, to help recognize the fact that creating a style is far more involved than creating a theme.

* Speaking of, there are new styles available for your journal: Five AM is now live, and Crisped and Dusty Foot will be going live with the next code push.

* I've been working on the [site community profile] dw_suggestions backlog, and will be moving more things over to Bugzilla in the coming weeks, so if you haven't stopped by for a while to give your opinion, now's the time.

I will be back with a more detailed update as soon as I can type more reliably! In the meantime, if you're having problems, Support is standing by to help you.

Eek. Feel better soon.

Five AM was what finally allowed me to update my style from S1 to S2, by the way, and having a Page Summary module makes me _so happy_.

Ow ow ow ow I am so sorry. Feel better soon. That just makes me wince thinking of it.

OMG! Sorry to hear about your torn rotator cuff and dislocation. Not sure about the dislocation but my partner has a torn rotator cuff and, apparently, it's very painful. His pain is easing off now thanks to osteopathy. Hope yours gets better soon too. {{{HUGS}}}

Terrible stuff is terrible, hoping you get well soon, all the best to your therapy session, and hoping that you have nice minions to help you out while you're healing.

That sounds so very painful - I wish you a speedy recovery.

(And thank you for the update. I kind of like the short and to the point nature of this one.)

Good luck on recovering quickly!

Just curious, but how would one get involved in submitting styles and themes to [site community profile] dreamscapes?

I'd noticed the radio silence, and that is one heck of a good excuse and please get better soon! Don't overstress your healing body!

Ouch, sorry to hear that! I sympathize, I was in an accident 4 years ago and I broke my shoulder. Hope you have a speedy recovery!

Thanks for the updates. :)

Oh, ouch, I'm so sorry Denise. Just exactly what you don't need. I wish you quick healing.

Please take care of yourself, Ms. D.

We're doing OK, here. DW is humming right along with Kaylee Frey in the engine room.

Even though it's probably a result of your injury, I actually like the short and to-the-point format of this entry. XD I hope you get better soon, though!

I'll second this comment. Short and to-the-point is a Good ThingTM when it comes to Admin type posts; brevity is the soul of wit... and clarity. :)

I've never (thankfully) had a rotator cuff injury, but I know a couple of people who have, so I duly extend sympathies, hugs and a big mug of tea. :)

Sorry to hear that; I hope the healing's quicker than expected.
