Improved Decent People Page

It’s been a typical European summer for me, so I’ve been out and about a lot.

Still, there were many changes in the past month or so.

I’ve vastly improved site protection from script kiddies and other “hackers” who keep trying random URL attacks. Bless their souls. 😅

I’ve added a new upload scope to OAuth. This enables app developers to have a “low danger” scope so that even if a token is stolen, the worst that can happen is that the attacker can upload shots. But they won’t be able to delete them.

There has been a change to default chart temperature colors, making them easier to read, especially for people with certain disabilities. I want to do the same for the main chart, but I am yet to find a good palette. Suggestions are more than welcomed.

I’ve also created custom error pages, so you don’t land on the Heroku one if/when something goes wrong.

But the most significant change has been to the Decent People page. Since there are so many of you now, the page became very slow to load, but also it was hard to find anyone. Now you have a search there and can quickly narrow down and find exactly who you’re looking for.
