We have completely rewritten Nitro Type's code from scratch. This was a massive job, and Travis and I worked like men possessed to complete it... And yet it's still not done. There are bugs, and various parts are still not written (the race system, friend notifications, etc).
The Nitro Type code was old and inflexible. We have added so many features over the years that it was becoming too hard to work with. Now we can much more quickly and easily add new features. And even more exciting, the rewrite was necessary to pave the way for Nitro Type Mobile. That's right, race from your phone or tablet.... soon!
Right now! Go to http://test.nitrotype.com/ and mess around. But keep in mind, this is a live copy of Nitro Type. Anything you do there to your account is actually happening. This is NOT test data.
I just said... http://test.nitrotype.com/... sheesh. You ask a lot of questions...
Use the site like crazy. Try different stuff. There are lots of little secret new features all over the place. But for the most part, things are not hugely different. The key is that once live, this allows us to do the much larger features we have been planning for a long time.
Everyone! We like to release new things to Gold Members first sometimes, but we seriously need all hands on deck here.
What's In It For Me?
Ahh.. excellent question. The first person to report each specific bug will receive $50,000 (after this is over - not immediately). The more bugs you report (first), the more you earn! And the top few bug reporters will get a custom title.. Something like "Exterminator" or "Bug Squisher" or something... I'll decide later.
How Do I Report Bugs?
As a comment to this news post. Be detailed. What page exactly? How do we reproduce it? What browser and version are you using? The more detailed you are, the more likely we are to understand it, find it, etc. If we don't understand it, or you don't give us enough details, and someone else reports it, THEY will get credit for the bug.
Also, all comments that are not related to bug reporting will be deleted. Only post bug reports and/or clarifications to bug reports. The previous News post will remain open for commenting.
