Inside AP.net: Release Date Improvements
Inside AP.net: Release Date Improvements
06/12/11 at 02:30 PM by Jason Tate
I check release dates so many times during the day. To see when something is coming out, to see if it's in our database, to make sure we've got features and whatnot prepared for popular releases. In the new website, I wrote the database from the ground up. I wrote it to be something I would want to use. With that I built some cool tools into it so that I can pull what the most popular releases for the week are to highlight, predict the most popular releases of the month for our community beforehand to make sure we have features and exclusives scheduled, and things like that. I'll post some screen caps up for the new section in a few days. Right now I'm working on a behind the scenes tool for staffers that acts as a bookmarklet for quickly seeing if a release date is in our database. That way they can either get the info, edit it if new info comes up, or add it if it's not in out database. I can't tell you how many times I am going to use this on a daily basis.

Welp, just felt like sharing ... this is the kind of thing non-staffers never get to see.



More information on the release date section in an upcoming update. It's going to be invaluable.
