Report article RSS Feed 400,000 members + site updates

Tons of changes have just been deployed plus we've just hit 400,000 registered members!

Posted by INtense! on Jun 3rd, 2010

As I'm sure most of you know, we are extremely hard at work putting the finishing touches on Desura (our game / mod digital distribution solution). But that doesn't mean ModDB misses out on the update love it deserves. If you noticed a few minutes of downtime today, this is why:


  • Email verification, so if you change your email - you will need to verify it works
  • Shopping cart + purchase history (though this change is for Desura, unless you donate using the job ad system)


  • Streamlined the registration process, so new accounts are made instantly. They are read-only however, until you confirm your email
  • Updated the "lightbox" solution to be nicer. Also means when clicking "view original" image in the gallery you see it FULL SIZE and not a minimized version
  • Site login is now done via HTTPS for added security

These changes are not that exciting, but we should have some very exciting announcements and changes late next week, so check back in for that. Oh and we just hit 400,000 registered members!

hi ModDB team,

you can be really proud of this success.

i believe ModDB will grow bigger and bigger in the future. (i for myself will make propaganda for the side whenever i can)

congrats from me, too.
