Target Global Release Date: Tuesday, November 16, 2021

Summary of Changes

Page Speed Improvements

  • Optimizations have been made to bring down the average page load times from 393ms to 335ms.
Deployment Speed Improvements
  • Site downtime has been reduced by roughly 70% during releases. This currently applies to about 85% of our sites. We look forward to rolling these changes out to our remaining sites soon!
Images
  • Various issues related to the shimmer solution implementation (ex: shimmer solution taking up the whole post in reports, showcases, and when an image is part of a user’s signature) have been resolved.
Vendor Subscriptions
  • The issue where businesses were able to successfully complete the business registration process with a business name that already exists has been resolved.
  • A Grow Your Business button has been added to the Homepage footer and Account Details drop-down menu. This initiative will increase awareness of the Vendor Subscriptions product and lead users to our business landing page.
  • The businesses that were registered by banned users will no longer be accessible in the Business Directory.
  • Vendors will be notified if their subscriptions were cancelled with a cancellation notice.
Marketplace
  • The issue where images within the image gallery of a buy/sell thread were misaligned has been resolved.
  • Listings will now expire after 44 days and be identifiable as such with a tag.
  • Users will now be able to sort through listings by Most Recent, Highest Price, and Lowest Price sort filters within Marketplace Home.

What is the user experience for a seller on day 44?
A notification that their ad has expired with an option to renew?
Is the ad still visible regardless?
If they renew does it stay in place or bump back to the top in front of other items?

It will expire on that date.

We will send an email to "renew" their listing or confirm it is still active or mark it as sold at day 30 then 14 days later it will expire (hence the 44 days without activity).

Does expire = delete?
Does the 44 days reset when/if someone replies to the ad? Is a reply "activity"? If not, what counts as activity?

I feel like we need a detailed user guide to the new marketplace system and what the user should expect to happen. We have an active classifieds with a few well established rules like no bumping your ad within X days and ads remain up forever & never expire so I'm trying to make heads or tails of what will change. Users will have questions that I'm not sure I can answer.

Definitely - we have a guide in the works with our marketing teams.

As for expire, it is simply a status indicated via a prefix. Hence why we needed to enhance the existing prefix system. It will change it to expired and be sorted after the one listings that are still 'Active' - Want to Buy , Want to Sell.

We want to make sure listings are fresh and relevant to the communities. We also want to avoid manual edits to the listings.

I would not delete a post since we want it to still be searchable and the content of the post to remain.

OK so it's really nothing but a prefix change. I'm still curious if the 44 days is from thread creation or last reply.

From creation date.

Does 133 start purging free business with zero posts or no posts in the last 90 days mentioned here?

I thought this would bring Marketplace node enabling to the AFM site. How can I enable that?

I've got these buttons, good addition by the way. (y)

Also on 3 sites I've got this button . . . . . .

But it's missing on Mondeostoc.com. . . . . .

This could be because I already had VSS on this site, where I've had this "becoming a Premium Vendor." button for a few months now.

Do you know if this will be sorted in a future update, or can I have Mondeostoc updated manually to match the other sites.

Thanks.
