-  * March 3, 2012 - V3 Beta began. Progress updates will now be presented directly to the team via email. 
   * February 9, 2012 - The main structure of the database and CDN are in place. ​ The apache cache system and browser cache control is in place. ​ The lazy loader is in place. ​ Still young, but functional. ​ Server overhead on a page with 10 episodes is now only about 186KB. ​ On the old site, it was about 30MB for 5 episodes. ​ So we're //​definitely//​ having success in minimizing server resources and therefore increasing performance exponentially. ​ The test pages are loading almost instantly.   * February 9, 2012 - The main structure of the database and CDN are in place. ​ The apache cache system and browser cache control is in place. ​ The lazy loader is in place. ​ Still young, but functional. ​ Server overhead on a page with 10 episodes is now only about 186KB. ​ On the old site, it was about 30MB for 5 episodes. ​ So we're //​definitely//​ having success in minimizing server resources and therefore increasing performance exponentially. ​ The test pages are loading almost instantly.
   * February 28, 2012 - The main output of the episode list is pretty much complete (Season 5 only ATM). The home page module with the current episodes is in place and coded; slider works fantastically well. Lightboxing for video playback is in place. 300px ad space at the right column has been integrated. A "​popular keywords"​ feature has been written to allow users to focus on any of the top 25 keywords. Getting ready for Phase 1 beta this weekend.   * February 28, 2012 - The main output of the episode list is pretty much complete (Season 5 only ATM).

     - As for captcha stuff: I don't know how sufficient it is, the captcha DokuWiki supports (via plugin) is quite nice. If JavaScript is available, it fills in the correct answer automatically and hides the text input field. This way, users do not even see a captcha, but all spam bots that do not interpret JavaScript fail.     - As for captcha stuff: I don't know how sufficient it is, the captcha DokuWiki supports (via plugin) is quite nice.

     - Put things like Flattr, Paypal Donations etc. a little bit more prominently. Most sites have those buttons on the home page, so most people will probably assume that a site which does not have those buttons on the home page and directly next to the content does not use them at all. I don't think users would search the site trying to find if those buttons exist somewhere. I know the current page has those Flattr and Google+ buttons on the episode pages, but people who watch them live, via miro or YouTube will probably never go to these subpages. - ** will do; thanks for the suggestion. Still working out the layouts but this is a good suggestion**     - Put things like Flattr, Paypal Donations etc. a little bit more prominently.
