Anyone else received emails about this?
I did too.
I did as well.
I did, I'm honored
I did too , if anyone that did not has an awesome idea for changes to heatware, post it here
Yep, I did as well. Got the first email about a week ago and was actually testing it today a couple of times.
I got it as well.
is anybody here an app developer? would be cool to create a heatware app for ios and android
Damn it. I need to get more evals so I can be part of the cool people club. 812 out of 100k isn't too bad though.
I noticed today that I lost 4 evals on heatware somehow
Yes I lost 19 or so evals..... Down to 240 from 259
I believe he actually mentioned being open to that and/or welcoming assistance with it.
I lost like 60, he's cleaning up the database. Something about Evals from old accounts that users never registered I to the new system will be purged. The older the account, the more it will affect you.
I received the emails as well, and it sounds like he's already made some of the changes he discussed
The first rule about heatware beta is you don't talk about heatware beta....

Hello everyone! For the past few months I've been working on re-writing the site's backend to make it more flexible/scalable. I am very happy to announce that this was task was a success and I was able to include some usability improvements to the UI. One thing you will see missing the Trade Organizer. I have decided to remove this feature since it was not used as extensively as I hoped it would.
My primary goal for the site over the next couple months, is to improve the turnaround time for Support issues. I will be enlisting help from forum moderators and senior HeatWare members for this task. Another goal is to listen to feedback from the community and make additional enhancements to the site.
Rest-assured that after 17 years, I am still committed to HeatWare being the go-to resource for user feedback.
I would like to thank the handful of "beta" testers that helped make this new release success!
I did my part..
Yep, same here man. Found some odd issues and reported them as well.
Just came in to see if anyone else had noticed their feedback being reduced. Mine dropped from 107 late last year to 103 today. Not a big drop but a drop either way. Looks like I'm not alone.
he did some cleanup, the older the account, the more it was affected. I lost somewhere in the range of 150 myself.
Details of the clean up.
There have been some exciting changes at HeatWare over the last couple months that I wanted to share with you!
HeatWare backend has been 100% re-written from scratch with improved flexibility and maintainability
Streamlined editing of account profile
Post evaluations/feedback with fewer clicks
Automatically send e-mail reminders if you owe someone feedback
Popup alerts on sign-in if you have new messgaes or have outstanding feedback requests
Display a banner on user's page with the number of people waiting for feedback from them
Shortened user profile links. Old: heatware.com/eval.php?id=2 New: heatware.com/u/2
Created a REST API for forums to integrate user feedback data from HeatWare
Opened a community forum for announcements, comments and suggestions.
Major cleanup of user accounts -- Keep your account information up to date!
I am well aware of the slow or lack of responses to support requests. Part of the issue was that our support email was spammed with over 100,000 emails and took quite some time to clean it up. In addition,HeatWare is a hobby for me and life got very busy and I could not allocate the amount of time necessary to keep up with the emails. However, I will be making a strong effort in efficiently responding to support requests. Support is no longer a one-man show. I have formed a small committee of well-established traders from the community to handle feedback disputes. They have already been working very hard behind the scenes the past month in resolving disputes and I am thrilled to have them aboard!
