META:? Any update on App Re-Launch?

Submitted by Fhshockey112002 on February 13th, 2012 at 8:35 AM
It's a Monday, and no one wants to be at work, or in class. So I was trying to procrastinate as much as possible this morning, only to find the app still is down. Last I checked (Tuesday post) the app was still a few days away from being opporational again. So I say to you, do we have an idea of when I can convienently distract myself from work?

Pretty sure I read somwwhere that Brian was going to restore the aps right after he put the old pos/neg point system back in place.


Worth a shot anyways........

but you can't post from it yet. Also the MGoBoard connection on the Android app is to the MGoBoard link at the top of the page, all the stickies are on top

I downloaded the latest version a couple of days ago and it runs. However, the MGoBoard posts are chronologically out of order. For example: the first post is dated Dec 6 2011, then Feb 4 2011, Jan 13 2011, followed by several 2009 posts before the latest 2012 posts. Perhaps I will try uninstalling and reinstalling the app. Any suggests, nevertheless, are welcome.

I'm running the latest version, and the mgoboard post dates are as follows: 

Moderator Action Sticky: 12/16/11

Creating a new thread? Here's....2/4/11

Hide Negative Posters Script 1/13/11

Listening to the game...Anywhere!10/3/10

UM Friendly bar locations...10/19/09

Etc....Clearly not chronological, and seem to be a feed from somes sub-category of useful information..

Keep in mind that all updates have to get approved by Apple, which usually takes a week.  As a result, I didn't wan't to submit a limited function version.

I finally figured out the issues with posting comments and replies on Sunday.  I should be able to clean things up tonight, test things out for a day, then submit the update to Apple on Tuesday night.  The update should then be in the store around next Monday or Tuesday.

There are few things that aren't working yet, but I'll fix those, if I can, in future updates:

- no comment counts on the board/front page/diary screens

- no user activity menu

- touching the title of the comment will not longer take you to the real web page

On the other hand, subjects now get auto-generated, so no more "Posted from iPhone"

I just tried to upload the mgoblog app to my iphone -- still not working.

Specifically the Iphone App Store is not listing mgoblog.  Rather, it lists the UM CBS Interactive app as the only available app.

Please advise (as I am experiencing withdrawl symptoms).

Doesn't work on my iPad either, so I just bookmarked it in Safari.  Renders pretty well and is actually a bit more functional than the app, anyway, as I can do important stuff like moderating people's posts.  You know, the stuff that really matters.
