Hi gang. The full changelog is at /changelog.txt
Some highlights…

among many, many others…

A huge swath of bugs in this release have been fixed.

Thank to everyone who’s submitted issues so far

Awesome work, Rocketboom! I’m impressed with your handiwork! Keep up the great job!

Thanks for fixing the search. That will cut down on dumb entries.

I like it!
Now I just have to find out what else changed.

Dec 31, 2009 at 03:37PM EST

Can someone please explain exactly how the karma system works?

Dec 31, 2009 at 03:38PM EST

If a post accumulates 3 negative votes it gets hidden, and counts against a person’s karma.

Upvotes are added to someone’s karma immediately.

Highly upvoted posts will flag the whole thread as epic.
Eventually we might make some kind of “best of KYM forums” page

More to come down the line as we see how people are using the system…

Wow, admins! You really done it this time. I FREAKING LOVE THE NEW FEATURES!

I accidentally voted down a comment. Is there a way to fix that, or is it just not that big of a deal?

im amazed. contributions are a thing of the past!

From the chanelog:

Display breakdown of contributions rather than a total score

The contributions are now better than ever. By viewing someones profile, you can get a good idea of the kinds of contributions that person makes to the site. Some people are more focused on editing their meme entries and getting them confirmed, while others don’t write much but upload a lot of images, some mostly give feedback on other meme entries in the comments, while others primarily post in the forums.

Now all of that is reflected rather than a total score.

@Cooper Smith -- if you press + instead of – it will switch your vote

I’m really sorry to everyone but I can’t believe I didn’t post this before:

This thread definately deserves it.

You really like Val Kilmer.

Also, I’m not saying your image is overused.
