Not a whole lot has changed since our last diary entry in March, but a number of events occurred.
The biggest feature added was the return of the Guess the Number mini-game. As with other mini-games that have returned, the game received some minor updates to make it more entertaining for everyone. Different difficulty levels can now be selected, with rewards that scale up the harder it is to win. An animated number display randomly cycles through possible numbers, before stopping on the correct number.
As part of the big 14th birthday celebration, the slot machines were updated to continuously rotate out new and returning promos to the Click Exchange and Feed systems. A surprisingly fun, yet seemingly impossible, Match card pack was added featuring only Ditto cards.
As part of the Easter event, Smeargle received new paint jobs courtesy of Akemie. The Johto beasts returned, in their shiny form, and summoned the almighty Ho-oh. And keeping with our promise of returning events, last year's Raffle prizes have returned to the Game Corner!
The "What's changed" list is rather short, but for good reason. Tango and I have been hard at work, focusing almost exclusively on the new website's design. If you haven't read last quarter's diary entry, I highly suggest you do. It contains the first full look at the new design, focusing on the Daycare page.
But before we dive into the latest design updates, SinNOh. Sinnoh work has not started, but it is on the short list of things to do. That doesn't mean this summer is going to be uneventful though, as we have a number of events, stories, and more planned to keep everyone excited, entertained and engaged.
A lot of the new design pages have been finished, but there are a still a handful that need to be worked on and a couple need touch ups. In today's diary, let's see what Team Rocket has been up to...
The help dialogue box returns, and provides more information about how Team Rocket works, how to get promo codes, and more. The redemption area has been redesigned and is used in a couple places, like the Adoption Center. We also have our first look at the mobile friendly design, showcasing how the site looks on an iPhone. And, how about that floating sidebar at the bottom? Icons now appear on the desktop sidebar, and when on mobile, it collapses, providing instant access to key pages, as well as your profile when expanded.
Visiting the backroom, the help dialogue explains how the backroom works and what revealing or discarding a code does. Your most recently, not discarded, codes appear in a list, now with a blacked out silhouette! When clicking on the buttons, they will temporarily disable, preventing you from clicking them again accidentally until their action is complete.
