As promised, we have added that special line of code needed in order for you to choose between the regular Team Falcon site and the new Beta site.  And, after some further testing, we have determined the following:

  • Light, Dark* & Beta themes will be free for all members of Team Falcon
  • New themes beyond these 3 will be exclusive to VIP members

As a reminder, Team Falcon VIP is just $20 a year and will help us with new projects!  And, our Dark (*) theme will be available later this year.

Falcon 4 in Beta No Comments   
Written by Falcon on 5/25/2020 at 1:16pm in Announcements

Last week, we were ready to release an update, dubbed Version 3.2.  And, shortly after we released it, we ran into some minor issues that made us have to go back and return to Version 3.1.  We fixed the bugs, but we left out the new features, and we called it Version 3.1.1.  Now, 3.1.1’s update gave us a chance to start fresh with our previous issues and work our way back up.  When we were able to get everything to work flawlessly, we called it Version 3.5.  Then, an idea hit.  Why not have 3.5 just have 1 thing … one small, yet huge thing?  While Version 3.5 only got half of the Falcon 4 header, it also gained the ability to change themes.  Falcon 4’s plan is to focus on those themes, but we want to test that even further with the relaunch of our Beta program.


New “Cookie” No Comments   
Written by Falcon on 5/25/2020 at 12:49pm in Announcements

Cookies have been used in browsing forever, and that includes when you create your user account at any website, whether it’s Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, or even right here at Team Falcon.  When you came here the first time after we launched a new tool, we had a box at the bottom that said something along the lines of “This site uses cookies, by continuing here, you agree to the terms written.”  We don’t track your stats, we don’t look at your computer, we don’t do anything with it.  It’s just a very tiny file that is placed on your computer that tells your browser “Hey, this is their personal settings, they want their password to be remembered (optional), etc.”.  And, by “personal settings”, we mean the new Theme system that we programmed earlier this morning.  One thing I failed to realize is that when you switch your theme, it would automatically reset back to the main theme after 1 hour (60 minutes).  The code has just been modified so the cookie would expire after 1 year.

A lot can happen in 1 year, and if you like the current status of the Team Falcon site after a year, that’s fine.  We’re hoping that we can somehow extend the cookie expiration time to an indefinite period of time rather than having to reset once a year, but that will be looked into at a later time.
