Release notes

This version contains a number of bug fixes reported during the beta period, as well as a few major features and changes.

There are two major features in this update: Smart event negation and Event transaction moderation.

Smart event negation: In previous versions, you had to configure both the "Amount" and "Negation amount" settings for each events. If you did not do this, users could gain infinite credits by simply editing their posts over and over again. While the negation amount worked for the majority of users, it did not work if you made use of the "Random addition" feature.

In this version, you can optionally enable "Smart event negation" which will delete the previous transaction rather than inserting a new transaction when negating an event (such as deleting a post). This means your members will lose the exact amount of credits they earned (including random additions), and will no longer see multiple alerts when editing their posts. The transaction log will also no longer be cluttered with strike-through events.

This feature is still experimental, as I can't be sure if it works in every scenario. Furthermore, in order to take advantage of this feature, you have to set the "Negation amount" settings in your events back to 0 (so as to not disable a feature where negating an event would take away a different amount of credits).

The feature also doesn't work with all event triggers. A complete list is not available at this time.


Event transaction moderation: You can now optionally moderate each and every transaction for any given event. This is particularly useful if you have, for instance, a Redeem event that's supposed to be secret but you suspect the code has been shared. Events will appear in the Approval Queue where moderators with the appropriate permission will be able to approve or reject it.
