Welcome to the monthly round-up for Keepthescore.co
Welcome to the monthly round-up for KeepTheScore. You may not know this but KeepTheScore is a one-man show. It's one guy (me) doing the coding, the support, the design -- and writing this newsletter.
Here's what I got done in August. I added one headline feature and am preparing for a big change to my business model in September. Read on for more.
This is a feature that many people have asked for. It is now possible to use times (hours, minutes, seconds) on scoreboards and leaderboards.
Maybe you are running a Formula 1 competition or a tournament involving Mario Kart or GTA? We've got you covered! Read more here.
A fundamental change is coming to Keepthescore.
At the moment you pay a small fee to upgrade a scoreboard or leaderboard — which then stays upgraded forever. As I have come to realise, this is not generating enough revenue to pay my bills. So sometime mid-September I hope to have enabled subscriptions.
How will subscriptions work?
Please let me know if you have feedback or thoughts on these plans by simply replying to this email.
The preparation for these changes is already underway. 2 new features that are related to subscriptions are:
Two interesting new things worth mentioning:
There is now an option for hiding the "last update" text on boards. See below.
Also rankings have been added to scoreboards using the "compact" layout (which is the default). See below.
Let me know your thoughts on the above or anything else... just reply to this mail.
So long for now,
