"Wow" is probably the word you just mumbled to yourself. As you can see there was a massive face lift to the Trove. The team here is always coming up with new ways for you to showcase your talents.
That was the major focus for this update, showcasing 'your' talents. In doing so we've merged the Media page with your MyStage so everything about you is centralized. With the BackStage it was the same goal, put everything in one spot to make it much easier to edit your media, friends, and feed activity.
Speaking of Feed activity that was completely built from scratch replacing the old Alerts system. With it you can now comment, like, and dislike any item that is inserted into it.
Behind the scenes I personally spent a great deal of time reworking a lot of the core code to make it more efficient and accurate. Hopefully there will be large speed boosts while browsing between pages including a completely reworked search which covers Media, Users, and Blogs.
Lastly, this is just the first release of what we call codename Octo. With new releases there is always going to be hidden bugs and knew adjustments/concerns so please contact us
with any issues that may exist. In the mean time we're already working on the next update which will make your experience more streamlined.
Thank you all for using the Trove and hope you continue to grow with us!
