Recent Updates to the Site

TECH’s bylaw requires that we make reports any time that public-facing changes to the site software are made, in order to document exactly what was changed. Here’s everything that has changed since the last report that was issued on November 24, 2019:

Version 1.7.6 - January 5, 2020

New Member Application changes

  • Removed “Ship Type” field on New Member Application
  • Removed Kelvin choice under Academy field on New Member Application
  • Academy and Mentor fields on New Member Application are now checkboxes
  • Added new checkbox to request Alt RPG information to New Member Application
  • Stopped displaying the ship type on the Application Detail screen
  • Changed “New User Application” title to “New Member Application”
  • Replaced New Member Application introductory text
  • New Member Application is now partially a 2-column flexible layout
  • Added a “Please double-check your application…” request at the end
  • Upgraded to Django 2.2.9

Most of the development effort since the last report was focused on the GM Archive. A pre-release demo for that to the GM Department is imminent. The timing of the next feature release will depend on how much effort is necessary to address the feedback we receive.

We deviated from the GM Archive effort slightly in order to make changes to the New Member Application form, which were requested to address comments in the New Member Task Force report.
