Since our last hitRECord Manifesto request, the community’s contributions to the collaboration have been outstanding. There are some “Think RECords” that need visuals, so check ‘em out & contribute your imagery!

This is great contribution Lianna. It’s so useful when the illustrations match up to the angles shot for the film. It’d be great to see more contributions from everyone for the apartment in the film…there’s quite a few angles of the flat needed! Or maybe remix up Loddi’s images with other props - could it look a little more hipster or grungy for example?
CALLING EVERYONE W/ A CAMERA!
Our TV show’s episodes are going to include lots of cutaways to members of the community hitting RECord in a close-up shot - so let’s keep shooting more footage!
EVERYONE W/ A CAMERA: Shoot footage of a finger hitting a prominent RECord Button. Check out THESE EXAMPLES.
Our Development team has been looking into the RECord Playback Issues that members of the community have been reporting. It appears that the most recent version of FIREFOX is currently not compatible with the file type (.m4a) RECords are encoded into on hitRECord.
We are looking into some upgrades that we hope will make the files compatible with FIREFOX, but in the meantime we recommend using a different browser.
Apologies for the inconvenience - and thank you for everyone’s communication! It played a big part in helping identify what the issues have been.
ALL ‘ORPHEUM SHOOT’ CONTRIBUTORS: Upload all of your RECords from Sat. night’s Orpheum venue shoot & make sure you contribute to the specific Request in the Collaboration your RECord fulfills. CONTRIBUTE HERE

Here are some of the topics we covered in this video:

The site underwent some updates last night that will improve the overall performance and use of the site.
* Firefox-specific fixes for Subscribing, Commenting, and viewing Recommendations
* Conversations page loads more pages
* Comments will render carriage returns/newlines correctly
* Resourcing and Search/Browse allows exact keywords and RECord ID searching
I’m happy to announce the release of the features we postponed on 12/6/12. The following is now released on hitRECord!
> New features and improvements to application:
* Completely new Album creation/revise process
* New Album design
* Completely new Heart capabilities (this will also reset hearts/recommends to their correct value)
* Fixes to bottlenecks throughout, including loading of records on page via Ajax#record_dynamic
* Improved counter caching for hearts, views, comments, etc.
* As soon as all of the above is deployed, then we begin the Album migration task which will move all existing Albums into their new format
> We also have a few more updates:
* Dashboard should now function more smoothly, meaning the labels should finally reach zero once you have truly viewed all your new items
* Everything should be much snappier!
Enjoy & remember to provide us with any feedback you might have HERE.
