    It's FridYAY, bank holiday weekend. Some good plans for code, lots of fun planned. It's going to be great!.. Has everyone else got anything planned? Not sure which countries get an extended weekend. Guessing the US doesn't.

    Thanks again to Jetbrains for giving us an open-source license to all of there tools 😀 as some of you may not know (been a while since discussed) the plan over the coming year, as well as add all the features we have planned to Pjuu is rip-out MongoDB and move over to PostgreSQL. These tools will help massively

    Does any one play any computer games?? I have a guilty please of one game and that is League of Legends. Used to play Runescape when I was younger, thought I'd blown the addiction.

    What would be the number one thing you would change about Pjuu and why? (excluding federation, we are still discussing the subject)

    Over the next couple of days I will be adding a bit more JS to pages so the page doesn't need to reload after every vote and the likes. Just need to work out one thing to complete.

    😴 it's been a long long week!.. Welcome to all the new users who have signed up however. It's great to have more people to get to know. I know the process of joining Pjuu isn't as good as it could be and the same goes for anyone else running the software. So I am going to prioritise work in the coming weeks to make it easier to find others on the site 😊

    Hi everyone. I have added a tip system to Pjuu. It will welcome any new users from now and any users that are not already following anyone. You can go to Settings and press "Reset Tips" if you would like to see what it looks like. The users who are suggested are the 5 users with the highest scores. Any one could appear but you can probably guess who does 😆

    The new tip system should be out tomorrow. Should have been today but Liverpool match and Google IO got in the way 😊

    Just doing some work on a tips system to welcome new users and it can be used for advise else where round the site. Hope you are all having a good evening 😀

    There is also an iOtter upgrade for iOS waiting to be approved by Apple which will fix the issue with not being able to resize images in full screen or get back to the site from them.

    Hi all 😀

    A new version of the Android app is available on the play store https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pjuu.otterdroid any reviews would be much appreciated as we will be losing all the data of the old app.

    Hopefully the F-Droid upgrade will go ahead smoothly. There is two apps showing in F-Droid web interface so not 100% sure when this will be. I have spoken to mods over there who have helped with the plan of action.

    Hope everyone is having a nice Sunday. Been making some changes. Approve users have now been renamed to trusted (thanks for the name @mukt). There is also a description of each post permission on the settings page 😀

    Some bad news all. We are going to have to re-create the Droidotter (Pjuu android) app on the Google play store. This is entirely my fault and is rather embarrassing: Due to a hard disk problem in my Mac I lost the signing key used to update the app itself. This happened a couple of weeks ago and I have no way to recover it. I will provide more details when the next update gets deployed to a different app. Please accept my apologies. Lesson learnt: BACK UP EVERYTHING! Site data is backed up.

    Hopefully will fix a long outstanding issue in Droidotter and iOtter in the coming days. You should be able to zoom in and out of full screen posted images and get back to the post with force quit in iOtter.
