Payment security, ShareThis, Conqueror

Postby lackattack on Mon Apr 26, 2010 4:00 pm

Payment security

We've upgraded the secure encryption on the payment page to Thawte and there is now a neat little security seal from Thawte that confirms the page's validity (see beneath the form). We also fixed a bunch of security warnings that appeared in Internet Explorer. Although transactions on Conquer Club have always been super-secure this should make it more reassuring.


Share Conquer Club with ShareThis

We've added a neat little ShareThis icon to the top of each page. Using it to share Conquer Club content socially via email, myspace, twitter, etc. You can share the home page, a forum topic, even a particular game! You will also be able to see what your friends are sharing, which is pretty cool.


Conqueror rank icon

Although it didn't win the badge competition, the submission from RjBeals makes a great Conqueror rank icon, so we updated it. RjBeals get a Special Contribution medal for supplying this shiny new graphic and Conqueror rabbiton gets to wear it on his profile.

Thawte, niiice.

ShareThis throws a lot of errors in Firefox 3.6 - you might want to look into this.

New icon is good, somehow off the current style but I am sure people will get used to it.

Rabbiton's conqueror rank is still the old icon on his profile, but the new one everywhere else.

Is it possible that the "ShareThis" feature makes the pages download slower?

The icon looks so mediocre. I mean just compare it to FM or General icons.
Life is what happens while you are busy playing Conquer Club.

Seems that way. Since the implementation of this new feature I have to wait much longer for every page to load and it's really irritating. And is anybody honestly going to 'Share This'? The impact it seems to have had is detrimental to what the majority of users come on here for.

The "Share this" feature is all the rage right now and I'm with you - I think they're stupid.

No, you need them to sign up by referral link.

Since ShareThis seems to be causing errors and slowing down page loads, I replaced it with AddThis. Works pretty much the same but seems quite faster to me :P
