To be a little more transparent about what is going on with dev, I'll be uploading occasional "work in progress" shots (and perhaps video) to socials.

First up, clubs! (on Twitter)

I have posted a few more images on socials for "work in progress" on the RHP update.

The "Manage Games" page will be being removed as it will become obsolete when the new context menus are introduced for managing folders, etc.

The thread link again :

A little update on this work in progress.

This is taking a little longer than planned, so we now have further delays before beta. Coding time is reduced in March, so this looks like April now.

The original planned scope of the update has been reduced somewhat, to allow an earlier release and then incremental updates thereafter.

Primarily, all board code / game play pages will remain as is for now, and be updated post release.

I still have a TO-DO list as long as my arm, so this may still drift further. I've held off from posting further images for now as I'm back in the "everything is broken" phase (in the development build of RHP).

Could we please have board coordinates for games and boards inserted into threads?

Yes, done in dev. (Board size bump too). It will be released only with the upcoming major release though.

We are about to head in to June, so I'm now starting to regret not incrementally releasing some of the earlier modifications.

Alas, too late for that now, so this is just an update that progress is continuing as about as swiftly as it can.

But there is a long time even now before finishing, and more so releasing. (With a break in between too, plus testing and a lengthy beta.)

Repeat after me, never give wild estimates on a software project completion when you keep expanding the scope as you go.... ๐Ÿ˜‰

Thanks for your patience!

The web site private messaging system is changing.

If you are familiar with the private message system on the native apps, then you can expect similar on the web site. (A more "chat" like appearance which has become standard on all modern messaging systems)

Would it be possible to have a “preview before send” function like we have with posting in the forums plesse?

Feature creep, the hydra of coding.

A wise programmer once said: a program is complete not when there’s nothing more to add, but when there’s nothing more to remove.

Yes, post update. I've promised this before, I know, but once this release is done I'm back to making incremental updates, including the the Games Explorer and a complete reinstatement of the master databases. It will also be the first feature to receive the new board code before it gets rolled out everywhere.

I can only apologies about the delays - I was hoping to have had this done long ago but grossly underestimated effort.
