SpringNews Updates

Recent advances have occurred across the site! As you might have noticed, the theme has changed, and things look a little different. More is on the way on this front, but there have been some notable changes.

The Review Queue

When the automation powering the site pulls things in, sometimes items are pulled in that have nothing to do with the spring engine or its games. For this reason, some feeds are pulled into a pending review queue for manual approval. While in this queue these items are unavailable, but not anymore.

Users can now view the queue from the top menu, and if you’re logged in, you can publish posts or mark them as irrelevant!

Submitting News

There’s a new way to submit news and interesting things. In the top menu you can submit news using a handy form:

Items will then appear in the review queue for approval by a registered user.


You can now read the news from Tumblr!

Other Changes

  • Spring 1944 added to the feed aggregation
  • The Zero-K, Spring 1944, and EvolutionRTS sites were added to the main navigation menu
  • 10 games were added as options to the games taxonomy

Thanks for the support for the site, as usual, if you’d like to claim posts as your own related to your game or feed, comment below with contact details and a login will be arranged. Help is always needed, regardless of how much automation is set up.
