Hello all! How is everyone enjoying 2016? This past month we've started selling Billie Joe 2016 campaign posters (designed by @Jack and @BeachBum and as seen on Billie Joe's Instagram account). Check out the details here. I also wanted to mention "New in the Download Section" by @Todd. He'll be highlighting new Green Day and Green Day related media for your downloading pleasure. Sayonara for now.

Help us pay a couple bills

Asking for some donations for GDC to cover some costs. We have our license renewal which is $50, and the updated dark theme we got with the last upgrade was $20.

If you're willing to help out, you can do so via PayPal (you don't need an account, it accepts debit/credit cards). Click the button below.

 

btn_donateCC_LG.gif

 

As always, I know not everyone is in a position of being able to donate. Perfectly understandable! Thanks to those of you who can, and to those who can't, I won't forget this. :fuzz:

 

Reminder that if you donate $5 or more you'll be put into a group that has all ads disabled across GDC.

Changes in latest upgrade

We've upgraded to the latest version of the Invision software. There are three major changes and lots of small ones. 

 

  • Improved editor
    • The post editor was completely re-written for better support on mobile and should load more quickly
    • You can now press Ctrl and right click on the editor to 'Paste' or 'Paste without formatting'
    • When you're using quick reply, you can now press Tab + Enter on your keyboard to submit a post (instead of 3 tabs like before).
  • Content Streams
    • This new feature allows you to create custom streams of activity on GDC. 
    • By default you'll see one stream that I created near the top right for 'Unread Followed Content'. That's an easy place to browse all comments, posts, and topics that you follow that have new content.
    • You can see other content streams or even make your own by hovering over Activity on the top right and selecting an option.
  • New-old Dark Theme
    • We've gone back to the Dark theme we were using before the upgrade to 4.0, so things should look a little more familiar. 
    • There's a lot of the small customization we need to do (user info around avatars specifically) - but I'm going to wait a few more days since the developer of this theme has been upgrading this theme several times this past week. I don't like making a ton of changes, then having to do them all over when an update comes out.

 

There's other changes that I'm still finding out. If there's anything else very different I'll add it to this post.

Some background upgrades are still running on the server, so I expect the site to be running a little slow while those complete. Much of that is indexing content for the new content streams and improved search system.

Happy November 1st GDC! I hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween.  Last month we had our annual GDC Awards. Congratulations to the winners/runner ups and a shout out to Bum for making the banners. Thank you to everyone who voted this year.

We know a lot of you have been posting about the issues regarding the performance of the forum. An upgrade has been announced which should take care of some of the issues everyone is having. There are still some bugs to be worked out and addressed in the next update so we will be waiting for the next update. Hang on just a bit more! We will post a blog post highlighting some of the changed features. On a separate note, GDA is holding a Green Day pumpkin carving contest and you can check out the details here. Have an idea for a contest? Comment below and let us know what kind of contests you guys are interested in participating in.

Forums Re-organized (again)

We've re-organized the forum once again. This change creates a new "Interests" category and moves Clubs back to the main page as part of that new category, puts Brink and Musicians under a new 'Creativity' subforum, and moves Movies, TV, Books and "Other Artists" into a new subforum called "Entertainment". 

 

We've also decided to remove Shenanigans. We didn't feel that most topics were used often and didn't really feel like they were adding much at this point. So we've taken two of the most popular topics and re-created them elsewhere. The Picture Thread has been restarted under "General Chat", and "How Are You Feeling" is now under Advice. The Shenanigans forum is read-only for now and will be deleted on November 1st. 


Unrelated, but still new, there's a new forum called "Unreleased & Rare Songs" in the Downloads section that Todd is working on.

How are we all doing after that horrible day we dread every year as a Green Day fan? What was the worst one you've heard? Post it in the comments below.

This month we will have our annual GDC Awards so be on the lookout for the categories thread and voting thread! Remember, you save a puppy every time you don't vote for Mark.

P.S. Congrats to the newlyweds.

Now that the dust is starting to settle with the upgrade, I'd like to ask for your help in covering some of the costs. 

In total the upgrade cost around $150 more than we usually spend on GDC - here's a breakdown of the costs:

  • New theme: $55
  • Paid Plugins: $46
  • Mega Account re-activated for downloads: $15

There were some other fees, but since it was my own fuck-up I'm not asking for any help with that.

If you help out with more than $5 you'll be put into a special group to disable all GDC ads for 1 year. We might add some extras later on for this group - just not sure yet.

Click the button below to donate

btn_donateCC_LG.gif

 

Thanks to everyone willing to help us out! I completely understand that not everyone is in a position to do so, that's alright. Just keep being awesome and participating around GDC.

Towards the end of last month we've upgraded the forum to version 4.0. We hope you're all enjoying the new software! If you want to read more about it, check out this blog. There are still things we are working on so we would like to thank you for your patience.

We've decided to re-organize a little bit on GDC. As many know, I strongly dislike having a long list of subforums on the index. i think it gets confusing and a bit daunting. 

I've always felt the "Community" and "General" subforums were a little mixed. @Amanda gave me the idea of having an "Interests" subforum to put related content together and I really liked that. So we've created a new subforum "Interests" to put all that stuff together, and removed the "General" category. Shenanigans was moved to the main 'Community' section and 'Other Artists' was moved to Interests. So now when you view the index you'll see the following subforums under a new "Interests" subforum

  • Clubs  
  • Musicians' Lounge  
  • Other Artists  
  • Brink of Your Vision  
  • Movies, TV, Books & Games 

We've also decided to merge together the Musicians Lounge from the three subforums it was (Musicians Lounge, Share your Work, Feedback) to one place where people can share their work and get feedback on their music, lyrics, instruments, whatever. 

I think this makes the index page look easier to navigate, puts related content grouped together, 

I would like your feedback on the name. Should we have a Green Day related name for 'Interests'? If so - any recommendations?

GDC has been upgraded to 4.0!

Hey everyone, welcome back to GDC. Sorry if you guys felt lost or worried that we'd never come back online. The upgrade finally went through - and this blog is to list a few of the major changes.

First off, everything posted after July 18th is lost (PM's, posts, statues, etc.). This is because the failed upgrade Andres attempted last weekend was causing some problems when we tried again, so he had to restore the database to an earlier state and in doing so, lost the most recent data. None-the-less - here's the new stuff.


New Features

Only one username now.
There is no longer a difference between a user's login and display name. They are the same thing. 

Mentions
You can mention members in post by typing @username and clicking their display name when the drop down appears.

Profiles
Profiles have been completely re-done. You can now add a cover photo to customize your page a bit, and it should be easier to see a user’s content when first viewing their profile.

No More Mobile Theme
The upgraded code means that whatever theme you prefer (dark or light) will be the same one you use on a mobile device. It's pretty awesome.

Along that same note, we're not going to get a custom light theme for now. We'll just stick with the default one since the developer of the old light theme has not indicated he'll be upgrading it to work with the new software.

That's it for here. There's a lot of new buttons and stuff to look at, too much to try and summarize. If you have any questions or problems, post below and let us know.

=====

There's a few things that are not working or that we will be changing/updating. Read the comments below for more information. We'll update this post tomorrow evening with more information.

Current list of Questions, Comments, Concerns and Suggestions.
(Last Updated: July 27th 1:07am EST)

  • Is the followed content missing.
    • Yes. We definitely need to replace this. We'll look for a new solution.
  • It seems like the forum is using larger font is squished more horizontally.  
    • This is mainly by design. Just lots of padding around some content. Fonts aren't really too much larger overall. Andres has adjusted font-size in the editor though to make it match the other content.
  • Some media icons are missing
  • Are signatures gone now?
    • Yes. Not sure why, they may come back. Andres isn't really sure.
  • No link in announcement. - 
    • You have to go into the announcement itself to click on the link since it seems to have its own page. Will research a better option like before.
  • Is the back to top button gone?
    • It is. Andres will look for a solution
  • Update backgrounds
  • Can the number of posts needed to make a topic popular be increased?  They are going popular at 9 posts at the moment. - 
    • We will keep adjusting this till we find a right solution. Right now it's only a few posts within the last 30 minutes.
  • What happened to friends?  Do we need to follow everyone again? 
    • YOU HAVE NO FRIENDS. :( You can follow users to get notifications on their content, but it's not a mutual relationsihp anymore.
  • Can the name list in chat be in alphabetical order again?
    • No. It's not an option and would require some coding that Andres isn't up to doing for now.
  • Image adder not loading images.
    • Seems to be some bugs in this code and Invision is looking into it.
  • Join date not with posts anymore
    • Added
  • Are things running slow because of the scripts running in the background? 
    • Yes. There's still a lot of work going on to the database that could be causing some of the issues.
  • Search not working
    • Major issues going on with the search database. Will work on this asap.
  • Can we confirm that only users with 100 posts can see the advice posts in the activity log in the profile? 
    • Yup. Only those with 100 posts can see advice posts everywhere.
  • No notification when a user is kicked from the chat. 
  • Avatars beside the names in the chat. 
    • We'll look into this later on.
  • Can pictures be automatically removed when quoting?
    • This was a third-party addon. Will have to see if another has been created.
  • Move user title under avatar
  • Remove member group below avatar
  • Adjust blue header in chat
  • In chat, change notification colors for entry and exit
  • Replace forum icons with warning man
  • Re-enable cover photos for all users
  • Source code to be changed to BBCode
    • I don't think this is happening. I believe Invision is phasing out some of the bbcode stuff and just want people to use the rich editor.
  • Ads stretching page on mobile devices
    • Ads have been disabled temporarily while I research a fix.
  • Allow quick reply to statuses
    • This is something Invision will likely support in a future release.

As a lot of you noticed the "On The Road" tour forum went missing about a month ago. The reason for this is because we wanted to set it up to be more consistent and actually sorted correctly.

From now on each tour will have it's own subforum. In there the shows will be sorted by date from oldest show to the newest show. To help keep consistency, each show will be labelled the same way "Year/Month/Day - Festival name (if applicable), Venue, City, State (for US cities), Country"

You'll also notice we now have a forum called "Secret Shows & Special Events" which is for any shows that don't fit in to a tour ie The House of Blues show. These show will most likely stay in Green Day Chat until 6 months after the show has ended where it will be archived in the subforum. The forum is currently empty but will be filled once we find all the shows. Any secret shows that happened during a tour (ie Fox Theatre show) will be in the tour era.

Please note that there is 10 or so shows missing from the 2010 US 21st Century Tour, this is due to a forum problem we are looking at getting fixed.

If you noticed any missing shows or mistakes, feel free to send me a message and let me know :)

What a month for Green Day and the fans, eh? We've known for months they were going to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame which was pretty awesome in itself but then, during our unity thread, they went ahead and announced a show at the House of Blues in Cleveland! Fangirl level: this. (but more accurately: this.) Some of our members were lucky enough to attend either/both shows so check out the top two topics of this month for their reactions.

Things this month...

I heard there was a Static Noise episode out. May just be rumors though.

Congrats to rk93novacaine for winning this year's GDC's Got Talent with her beautiful cover of "Brutal Love". Check out the cover and the runner ups here. I'd still like to give a shout out to this post, even though it didn't make it to the top five of last month.

This month...

I'll be quite honest with you guys and say that I'm very excited to see our boys inducted into the hall of fame and other show(s) that might be happening along with the ceremony. Have a blast to those who were lucky enough to get tickets to the show and/or ceremony. Don't forget to update us on what color Billie's hair is.

This idea was proposed by John in this blog, where we talked about what to do with the Musicians subforum, and I'm actually pretty interested in it and would like some feedback from the community.

A problem that we have with the creative subforums is that they just simply aren't used much. A handful of people use each section (Brink, Musicians, and Words I Might Have Ate before it was tossed away). I just don't like having subforums that only a small group of people use, that doesn't make sense organizationally. When that happens I believe it means we're becoming way too granular and separating communities in an unhelpful way.

What we're thinking of doing is merging them into one subforum where people could share their artwork, drawings, graphic design, lyrics, music, poetry, writing. People can have one topics for all their stuff, or have one just for graphic design and one just for writing - that part is really up to you guys. The way that we'd keep some organization to this would be to allow topics to be tagged by what it is (Artwork, Writing, Music - or whatever categories the community decides is best to organize by). This way people who only want to see artwork or music can click that tag and filter everything else out.

The one downside to this is that it might get a little hectic, but I don't think it's unmanageable, and I actually think that it can be a benefit. By putting all creative stuff together we get people's creative work viewed by other members who might not regularly venture into one of the other sections now. I think overall it'll make GDC better to use.

Please vote above and leave some input below about why you think this should or shouldn't happen.

Musicians Lounge just simply isn't working the way we hoped. I'm fairly certain that we're going to just get rid of it all together. It didn't work as "The Underground" when it was called that, and it's not working now. Even when GDC is active, it's still under-utilized and kinda feels like we're just pushing people off to a subforum that's hardly read for the sake of putting it there. Right now there's only a few people that use it regularly.

So - let's talk about alternatives. I'm open to ideas. Here's my current thought:

We close it down. We'll just close the threads in there to "archive" them, move them to General Chat so they can be found later if anyone has stuff there they want to keep. People can open more specific topics in General Chat ("guitar tips", or "Share Your Work", etc.) and if people want a dedicated place to post all their music - they can do so in a blog.

I think that system will work best. Any thoughts on this?

Last month we told how much we loved each other, thanked the past american leaders for the day off, and, more importantly, learned that half of GDC (and the world) doesn't know their colors.

This month....
