- Market and Member List Performance
We implemented “lazy load” to the Market and Member lists. This function allows the list to load in sections as you scroll - when the scrollbar touches the bottom of the screen more Causes/Members display automatically speeding up initial load time (especially important for those of you on slower connections).
- Negative Coin Balance Warning
You will now be warned if you do not have enough Galtcoins to complete an action you are about to take (example: buying shares in a cause, creating a cause). While the warnings may not be pretty, they are functional and their appearance will improve in a future release.
When you complete a Mission, you now receive the Mission Award. If you’ve previously completed the task in the Mission, you will be awarded the Galtcoins immediately. The Mission Award displays in your Transactions (found when you click your Galtcoin balance).
Heads up: the Invite New Members Mission will be going away soon. If you haven’t built your army, you will still be able to invite new members, but the Mission award of 50 Galtcoins will likely change or be replaced.
- Dividend Collection
Your Galtcoin balance now updates in realtime. For example: When Dividends are collected, your Galtcoin balance will refresh automatically. This type of action will be unrolled throughout the system as new features are added.
- Cause Price Display
New display logic was implemented to ensure the displayed cause share price matches the buy share price.
- Posts, Messages, Notifications & Feeds, oh my!
We are currently testing the new member-to-member and member-to-cause communication features that will be released next week. We think you will be amazed! We previously told you about this and referred to it as message center...but it’s so much more than that. The people we have shown the initial functionality to have been blown away. Jason even said…”this might be bigger than the launch itself”. We hope you like it as much as we do.
We will send you an update once it’s available. Just a heads up: we’re still in beta so while we are doing everything we can to make it “perfect” we know you’ll find all new ways to use it (and break it) that we didn’t think of. We welcome your feedback and would love to hear what you think (and/or bugs you find).
Tips & Tricks
- Invite Your Army
Don’t forget to invite new members and earn 25 Galtcoins for each person that joins. This is a great way to increase your army of supporters and increase your Galtcoin balance (at least for now) - particularly helpful for players without a lot of extra Galtcoins. Go to your profile to locate the Invite New Member link.
- Account Registration
If you're a Founding Member but haven’t completed your account registration, it's not too late. Please go to https://www.galt.io/register - use your email address and password you used to create your crowdfunding pledge and go through the Founding Member Initiation (there’s a password reset option if you’ve forgotten).
