JetPunk Change Log

Sometimes we change the way things work on JetPunk. Here's a place to make a note of these changes. Click on each month to expand or collapse the changes for that month.
February 2023
February 5th - Chart Paste + Bar Chart Text

You can now multi-line paste with Ctrl+Shift+V in the chart editor, just like you can for the quiz editor.

Bar Charts now allow text input on the X-Axis to be used for labels.

February 1st - Word Search End

After 1 whole year, JetPunk's Daily Word Search has finally come to an end. Read more about the reason's why in December's Round-Up, and see the blog of all the stats from the whole year here: JetPunk Word Search - A Year of Searching.

January 2023
January 13th - Image Editing Improvements

In the past, there have been issues where Brightness and Contrast settings do not match the resulting image. This has been fixed, and we've also expanded to include Saturation! (So you can do grayscale with saturation=0).

As well as this, you can now crop the image on mobile as well!

January 11th - Baseball Facts

Interesting facts not interesting enough for you? Well take a look at JetPunk's Baseball Facts instead!

January 7th - Shortcuts, Tags and Typeins

You can now use the shortcut Ctrl+Shift+S to start any quiz, and arrow keys can now be used to navigate the grid in Tile Select quizzes.

On Tag pages you can now filter quizzes by only showing those which are untaken.

Errors in Typeins are now more prominently shown, and can be easily extracted by clicking the "Show Errors" button on the right-hand side.

January 1st - Notification Expansion

Notifications have now been added for collaborations, quizzes added to groups, new and updated charts, and also newly featured quizzes in any featured language. Go to the relevant New and Reset page for each language to sign up for notifications.

You also have more options for disabling notifications on the Manage Notifications page.

Will the Venetian section be mentioned on the change log? Not sure how long it's existed.
+1
Level 60
Aug 30, 2022
Just a question: why do you require such an absurdly high level in order to link pictures into quizzes? Not only is this easily bypassed via the other methods, but it also makes copying images from Wikimedia a pretty big annoyance.
+3
Level 68
Aug 31, 2022
Primarily to prevent any random person from joining JetPunk and easily uploading copyrighted images or stock photos which can get us into legal trouble.

Those with a higher level have some time invested into JetPunk and so are less likely to sabotage it.

Level 60
Aug 31, 2022
Yet… that's easily bypassed by using the "paste image" option.

Level 63
Sep 13, 2022
I love the new format (as you can see if you look at my most recently created quizzes). I was wondering if QM (or yourself) plans on adding the option for randomisation as well as being able to have pictures as questions or answers. Both of these I think would be great for the format :)
+2
Level 63
Sep 20, 2022
Also the ability to have the answers out of alphabetical order. This would be helpful if a quiz's answers were the days of the week, or the months of the year, where alphabetical order doesn't seem right.

Perhaps I'm doing it incorrectly, but the Shuffle Answers button in the Click quiz format doesn't seem to work.

I was filtering the ruc for click quizzes, but i noticed some of them were created before the 12th. Is this a glitch or intentional?
+2
Level 68
Sep 19, 2022
Nope. 12th is when they were released publicly, some users had access before that.

Level 42
Sep 22, 2022
Would it be possible to add images to the Click Quizzes? Like with Multiple Choice or Tile Select. Or maybe add the “Edit HTML” button?

Someday, but for now trying to keep it simple

Level 60
Sep 30, 2022
Is it intentional that pasting a transparent image gives it a black background?
+2
Level 68
Sep 30, 2022
Yes, it's not something we can change. Images from pasting are transferred in a format that does not support transparency.

Is JetPunk gonna recognize the annexation of the Ukrainian oblasts of Kherson, Zaporizhzhia, Donetsk, and Luhansk by Russia, on the featured quizzes?
+1
Level 68
Oct 1, 2022
In every JetPunk map, most of Kashmir is shown as Pakistani and entirety of Crimea as Russian. So why not?
+4
Level 63
Oct 2, 2022
QM said not anytime soon apparently
+1
Level 48
Oct 18, 2022
Makes sense seeing as they don't even control the whole territory.
+1
Level 61
Oct 19, 2022
JetPunk isn't gonna recognize this illegal annexation. Not unless peace is reached (We know Putin though)
+2
Level 60
Oct 5, 2022
I realize it's possible with comment-liking, but has a proper poll function ever been considered for blogs?
+3
Level 68
Oct 5, 2022
Yes, personally I've considered it, but I'm not sure what the use would be to be honest. I fail to see a good "reason" for it to exist outside of a few people wanting it.
+4
Level 63
Oct 12, 2022
I was wondering if it's possible to implement the option to organise series inside of other series. For example, I might have a series called 'Click Quizzes', and then inside of that series, there are multiple other series (like 'Geography Click Quizzes' and 'Movie Click Quizzes'). I would for one find that useful.
+2
Level 68
Oct 12, 2022
This idea has been pitched before, and is on our back-log of ideas. However, due to how series were implemented originally it is not an easy task (hence why it has not yet been done)
+2
Level 63

👍

Level 49
Oct 19, 2022
So today's Word Search contains 31 words... does this mean you've increased the maximum number of words that a word search grid can have? If I recall correctly, one of the previous word searches had the hidden message "Thirty is a max"

Also I noticed that the chart on this page has some problems displaying today's score, so that probably needs to be fixed (it shouldn't be hard though)

+3
Level 68
Oct 19, 2022
30 is a max, mostly imposed by the scoring system. I found that 31 also fit on the popup recent scores, so I was trying it out. Seems it does not fit on the stats page itself!

I only did 31 as 30 looked too empty on today's puzzle, and I wanted 12x12 as all words were 6 letters :)

I'll fix the stat page issue later today.

+2
Level 60
Oct 19, 2022
I must say I admire your dedication to maintaining the word search.
+2
Level 59
Oct 20, 2022
There should be a mode on 1to1 click quizzes where instead of the question being skipped when you get it wrong, the incorrect answer you clicked gets skipped.
+2
Level 68
Oct 20, 2022
Hmm, I think that would be confusing to users
+1
Level 59
Oct 20, 2022
I have suggested this before, but maybe JetPunk featured colors, where you could just select “green”, instead of copy and pasting a specific hex code
+2
Level 68
Oct 20, 2022
The standard colours are on the svg guide. The component we use for color selecting is not ours, so we can't add specific colours easily.
+2
Level 59
Oct 20, 2022
Alright, thanks for responding to both my suggestions

Oct 21, 2022
Might just be my device - but is COTW supposed to say 100 recent comments?
+1
Level 68
Oct 21, 2022
Mobiles only load 100 recent comments to make the page smaller
+1
Level 59
Oct 21, 2022
I’m on desktop mode, and this page shows 250.

Level 68
Oct 21, 2022
This is regardless of "desktop" site i think
+2
Level 42
Oct 22, 2022
I don’t wanna be nitpicking, but in the Stats of the Answers of a Quiz, in Portuguese, the word “você” is misspelled as “voçê” (ç is used after a, o, and u). Could that be corrected?

And I also second the idea of a poll function to blogs. It would be a nice addition imo.

+3
Level 68
Oct 22, 2022
fixed thanks

And tbh, I don't think Polls will happen. I disagree that it would be useful for JetPunk given how few people even read blogs. Especially since there would need to be additional measures and such put in place to prevent multiple votes, and to store the votes and such. It's just a lot of unnecessary work.

+1
Level 16
Oct 25, 2022
I also think polls would be cool, probably BGG would make good use of them.

with the whole ' prevent multiple votes thing ' couldn't you do it the same way as nominations? since they are a non repeatable thing e.g. you can't nom a quiz multiple times so you could implement the same thing on polls right?

no pressure if you don't though, you do a lot of work on JP anyway

How to set the time (17:00) to the number format of a chart?
+2
Level 68
Nov 1, 2022
Time is not currently allowed in Charts. You can probably rig it by doing "17" and "17.5" for 17:30. Alternatively, instead of doing time, do "Hours / Minutes since polls closed".
+2
Level 42
Nov 1, 2022
Alright, and what does "Interpolate Gaps" do?
+2
Level 68
Nov 1, 2022
If you have gaps in your data, for example a year is missing for one of the series, then you can check this option to prevent the line stopping and restarting.

E.g. If you have the following data:

2010 1 2

2015 - 2

2020 1 2

Then, with interpolate gaps enabled, you will get a line at y=1, and a line at y=2. With it disabled you get a line at y=2, but you get a single dot at points (2010, 1) and (2020, 1)

The new data is very neat, do you ever plan to turn it into a table (year = column, row = country)?

To clarify, I meant a single table instead of a table each year with rows as the countries and columns as the years.

How exactly did JP figure out how to track the years over 5?
+4
Level 68
Nov 22, 2022
By using a very rudimentary method of the first quiz you ever took. It's not entirely accurate, but for 99% of people it's within a few days of being correct. Anybody who has never taken a quiz (yes they exist) were inferred based on their user id (the number in your quiz urls), which is sequential based on account creation.

For some reason all my past notifications have disappeared. Is that the same for everyone?

Level 68

We revamped how notifications work, and this meant all prior notifications were gone. We couldn't initialise the database with all prior notifications since there's over 1m of them!

The comments themselves still exist though.

At this click quiz, some people report the quiz being out of order, even though randomization is off and it works fine for me. Do you know why?

(Also, is there a way to make missed answers on Click quizzes show up?)

+2
Level 68
Nov 28, 2022
There is nothing wrong functionally. The problem is if people get a question wrong or if they accidentally change the question with the keyboard or buttons, then they have no way at all of knowing which question they're on since they're not numbered (intentionally).

We can't reveal the correct answer since then everybody would always get the last question correct as there would only be a single clickable answer left.

I agree with some comments that this was the wrong quiz type for the quiz chosen to be fair.

With the recent relaxation of blog pictures, can I just ask if it is ok to post within blogs screenshots from Google Street View or satellite view? Or will that create copyright problems?.

+3
Level 68
Dec 2, 2022
One of your blogs got reported recently and the report was validated (it was reported as Spam, which is absolutely valid given the blog content...). Due to having a recent valid report your blogs require approval for some time now.
+2
Level 59
Dec 2, 2022
Oh… that blog was a joke. Actually, I might disagree with it being spam, in a way. Every sentence in the blog was misspelled or misordered, though the mind causes you to read it correctly. I did this intentionally, and that was the point of the blog. I also in the comments stated that the blog was a joke, and if people had a problem with it I could delete it instantly. However, I can see how it may be spammy-ish.
+2
Level 68
Dec 2, 2022
I was well aware of what the blog was, but there is no way you can justify it was not spammy. Regardless of what your intention was, the result was a garbled mess of nonsense.

Regarding subheadings topic, is it gonna work?

And how to make the CSS suitable for dark mode? I mean specifically this one:

< style >

.did-you-know {

padding: 20px;

margin: 10px 0;

border-radius: 3px;

background-color: #eee;

display: inline-block;

}

.did-you-know .head {

font-weight: bold;

font-size: 120%;

}

.did-you-know .body {

margin: 10px 0 0;

line-height: 1.3em;

}

< /style >

< div >

< div >Your text here< /div >< /div >

+1
Level 68
Dec 14, 2022
Yes subheadings should work, just need to find time to implement it. Regarding CSS, not sure what it is for, but to add dark mode, just add ".dark-mode" before the class selection. For example ".dark-mode .did-you-know { ... }"
+1
Level 42
Dec 14, 2022
It’s for a blog. I wanted that the CSS could be suitable to dark mode as I noticed it wouldn’t work well for the most users

EDIT: Not working tho. The background color turns transparent both at light and dark modes.

+1
Level 68
Dec 14, 2022
I had a look at your blog, but you haven't used to dark-mode class anywhere in the css

Level 42
Dec 14, 2022
I deleted it after, but now I noticed I forgot of the stupid hyphen

Edit: Still not working.

+1
Level 68
Dec 14, 2022
The class is working. To be clear:

You need one css for light-mode, this would be with the class selector ".did-you-know". Then a second, separate, selector with ".dark-mode .did-you-know" for how you want it to look in dark-mode. It will. not automatically adjust, you have to define it.

+1
Level 42
Dec 14, 2022
That means I need to HTML components, on which one of them has to contain “.dark-mode” class? At least on Mobile both are still the same at dark mode: almost completely invisible. Or else I’m ignorant sufficiently to don’t understand a simple command. While I don’t get able to make it, I guess I’m gonna simply switch the text color to black, or to something thematic according to the Cup in question.
+2
Level 68
Dec 14, 2022
No, you are not understanding at all. Let me try again.

Say you have a div with a class called "color-me". You want this div to have a green background normally, but in dark mode you want it to have a red background. Then, the style for that would be:

< style >

.color-me { background-color: green; }

.dark-mode .color-me { background-color: red; }

< /style >

< div class="color-me" > this is my div < /div >

+1
Level 68
Dec 14, 2022
You see from this that the div itself is there only once, but you apply two styles on it and the dark mode one only applies in dark mode.

Also, on non featured quizzes the give up button is on the other side of the page, instead of right next to the time left.

Level 68
Dec 17, 2022
The give up button placement is intentional (I forgot to clear cache to update featured quizzes). QM thought that newer users might mistake it for a submit button, in particular those not expecting answers to be accepted instantly.

Just one problem with the most recent update, I don't know which quizzes have been reset. I can see which badges I don't have, but I don't know which quiz it is. They all have green ticks, and I don't particularly want to check every quiz. Especially the Country Trivia Badge;)

Anything that inspired the change? Seemed fine to me before.
+2
Level 68
Dec 20, 2022
Which change?

If you mean Badges, it was because the code for it was becoming slow and problematic due to storing badge achievements not matching current quizzes. For example you could have achieved a badge with 9/10 answers, but if the requirement is now 11 / 13 then you have a problem.

If you mean the quiz controls, this was inspired by the fact that the controls were disjointed, and that people complained about misclicking the give up link because they didn't know it was a button.

May I have your authorization to translate the SVG Guide with a friend (Netinhoofpeace) to Portuguese? And how did the French section made through a SVG Guide page instead of a blog like Italian and Polish ones?

And I can’t remember if I asked, but could we have back the language selector on search bar?

+2
Level 68
Dec 20, 2022
The French one was made by someone modifying directly the HTML page. However this ended up being rather complicated, so I'd prefer if it was in a blog. And yes you're welcome to do so, and I'll link it from the SVG Guide afterwards!

And no, the language selector is not coming back. However under "Menu > Languages" there is a "Search" option which allows you to search all languages at once.

Since the badge update, many quizzes that I've definitely completed before now say that I've never even attempted them. I used to have the generalissimo badge, after having completed all 100 quizzes, but it now says I've only attempted 8/100. How is this possible? Was this intentional? Because it doesn't make any sense to me.

I never knew I was. The settings of my browser are configured to block ads with suspicious/malicious content as standard. It was only two days ago when I started having this problem.

There appears to be a bug in today's word search. If you've already found more than 50 words in the grid (but haven't completed the puzzle yet) and you exit out of the page, it reverts to 50 when you go back (it only shows the first 50 words you found).

To extend:

- Anybody who completed the word search, your words found and grid will now look correct when you revisit the page.

- Anybody who found more than 50 words, left the page, and came back to it, unfortunately there is nothing I can do to recover the lost words, but if you continue finding now, it will work.

Bonjour à vous et tout d'abord merci de votre retour.

Ces type-ins sont présents depuis des années et nous avons pour habitude de ne jamais les rendre moins permissifs car cela pourrait déranger des joueurs qui s'y sont habitués.

Toutefois, j'avais moi-même noté ce problème en essayant de compléter le quiz "Pays du Monde" rapidement, donc je comprends votre frustration.

Surinam est une orthographe alternative listée par Wikipédia et plusieurs dictionnaires, donc nous allons la conserver dans les type-ins. Cependant nous avons retiré le type-in "Thailand" suite à votre demande.

Il n'est pas entièrement impossible qu'il soit réintroduit si trop d'utilisateurs se plaignent à ce sujet.

Bien à vous,
