Whatever happens in the Hattrick office stays in the Hattrick office? Well, not necessarily. Here’s what’s been happening (and happens) behind the curtain lately:
First we have spent some time on our internal bug reporting system, as it wasn’t in line with how we’re working anymore. The background here is that we’re aiming on becoming better and more efficient on handling bugs and similar issues, but we realized that we would never reach that aim with a tool that is very inefficient to work with. So even though this meant working with the backend (which is not really the general focus right now), it just needs to get done. And we believe it will pay off in the end as well.
There is still some things left to do in this area as well before we can use our upgraded tool for real, but at least we’re getting closer and closer to that date.
We have also started working on new stuff for Supporter, to strengthen our Supporter package. I will come back with more info regarding this work in January, when I also expect it to hit Stage for testing.
And personally I’ve started to prepare coming sprints (=task/project we focus on for a certain period of time), writing specs and letting my creativity loose a little – which feels good to start with after my parental leave. This said, the board’s decisions about the Supporter format might have an effect on what the development team needs to focus on early next year, and the board haven’t finalized their discussions yet and reached a decision (it’s not that far away as I understand though). But with this in mind, I’ll hold on further information about these sprints until the board has made their decision and I know more about how the upcoming schedule will look like.
And with that I have only one (or two) more thing to add:
Merry Christmas and a happy new year! I hope you all will have a splendid holiday. See you next year!
ho ho ho!
tjecken, keep us informed! we want to know!
whether or not it makes sense that we want to know, doesn’t matter! we still want to know! 😉
I think you must choose a multi-level supporter, with different prices, balanced with different functions. For exemple, 1 federation slot is 1 euro, Guest book 2 euro, Press annuncements 2 euro, ecc ecc. In this way, I think, a lot of new users will enjoy the supporter pakages. Otherwise I think a lot of supporter will disappear, especially if the prise rise up in the future.
Anyway Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! 🙂
Merry Christmas to you too and Happy Hattrick-ing 😛
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2012!
Good luck in popularizing our Hattrick in the world, because it is a game that connects people:)
Hope all at Hattrick nerve centre had a good Christmas. Glad you’re back fighting fit, Tjecken. Good you’re letting us know your ideas – Pity we don’t know the “board”
Looking forward to your progress in the New year – and have a Happy one!!
Always good to get updates. Have a good New Years’ Eve!
Don’t give us a look beind the curtain!
Give us finally a look behind your decisions instead of doing this wishy-washy!
