I have released quite a few brand new features, including the forum that you are reading. These features have been tested on Solitaire Craving but they may still have the odd hickup now and then, if you find anything out of place or something that doesn't seem to work please be sure to post it in the bug tracking section of this forum.
One of the most exciting features added to sudoku craving is the ability to rate comments. You can now click the 'Rate this comment' link on any comment to decide whether the comment is helpful, funny, interesting or even misleading.
To encourage more people to discuss the game (putting the social aspect back into the game itself) the person with the most helpful rating will receive an award. You must have a rating of +3 Helpful or better to get the award.
Comments and forum posts support emoticons and links. You can post an emoticon
using the normal shorthand equivelents on the keyboard. You can refer to a game by placing the @# symble's in front of the game name (for example game @#1 is the first game). You can also do this with usernames, simply put an @ symble in front of a name (@ adam lyttle will be @adam lyttle).
You can now track movement in the stats. This will show the main ranking movements throughout the day. When a new game is generated this is automatically cleared.
The images for the awards have now been updated. Instead of the old cluttered stars they are now condensed and look a little neater.
You can view a users average time and average moves in their profile.
There is now a 'My Stats' link below your avatar on the main page and on the forum pages. This will lead show all of your scores. You can also view all of a users scores by clicking the 'view all' link towards the bottom of the profile page.
The timing mechanism has been updated to prevent cheating. I will see what sort of impact this has on the community over the next few days.
I'm sure I have forgotten a couple of new features, as I have uploaded so many, but I have covered most of them in this post.
Enjoy the new game!
