We're working on it.
As a result of ongoing scalability tests, a few away messages might not have been collected from friends on your BuddyGopher BuddyList last night.
In other news...
- History Reduction
We have limited the Away Message history page to only display the last seven away messages. Dustin Smith suggested that we extend our history timeline to infinity. We can do that soon.
- New Favorites Feature
Just another good excuse to play around with XMLHttpRequest techniques? Nope. This was a user suggestion to curb problems with the limited availability of Away Message history. You can save unlimited Favorite messages, and over time we hope it'll turn into something like an Away Message yearbook. We definitely do not have any plans to delete the messages that you add to your Favorites list.
- MyDict bot
Our dictionary bot is not very stable. We didn't expect it to be so popular and are considering opening it up to get developer feedback.
