  1. Added more content to the Flash movies.
  2. Fixed a bug for the 'Create Logon from Advert' This is where you would have used the email address from your existing advert to create your account. For some people who did not fill in the joining form correctly that data was used to create their logon, without the possibility to correct their mistakes.

  1. WOOF!  - After the effort of creating something that was not used, I lost interest in maintaining it
    Since then there is a lot of interest in it, such is life.
    The passwords are now resynchronised. If you do a SEND MY INFO from the front page it will include re-synchronization of your password with other systems.
    Like other DogHouse applications, a 'valid user' is deemed to have a valid and functional email address. So when you abandon your email account your doghouse account will be deleted unless you do something about it.

  1. new versionUpgraded Members Logon Bar
    This had a bug in it which mean that some subscribers could not access the pictures. If you are using MSIE the images are changed as soon as you logon, if you are using Netscape based browsers such as FireFox you have to navigate to a new link/page to see the pictures as previously.
  2. Cookies & logon new
    The green logon bar at the top of the screen now can save your logon details.
    It also updates the page you are on so you done need to press F5 or see the pictures from the next link onwards.
     
  3. Inter-page Security new
    Both
    www.thedoghouse.org  and thedoghouse.org  and portal.thedoghouse.org are seen as one site when viewing pages as a subscriber. Previously the WWW url was just for non-subscribers.
  4. On Going Changes - What the future holds.

Heterosexual new - These adverts have been split down into Masters/Mistress' and slaves. This is not because this is moving from being mainly a gay male site but because this page was getting too big to load in browsers.  What this means now that is you are a female pup looking for a male Master or a Mistress looking for a male slave you need to ensure that your profile captures that you are Male or Female.
Slave Registered  - These are publicly owned slaves. These slaves typically have a tattoo of their number or barcode on their body and it is publicised here for the world to see. On these page it is clearly stated who there owner is, where as on the doghouse it just says that they are owned.
Flash movies - Subscriber user guides. Flash/shockwave plug-ins required. new version
Tour Guides -This will help you find your away around with some suggested tour guides. new version
Too many things to mention.

    1. Welcome to the Profile Centre. Take control of your profile, your advert placement.
    2. You will notice that at the top of the pages there will be a green logon bar - this will also form part of your control panel so that you stay it touch with all the other members. Once you logon you can access your profile centre and begin to feel at home in the doghouse.
    3. Set up automation to delete accounts with Bad Emails ('Email Box is invalid' or other 550 error) in the user logon area for non-subscribers.
    4. Improved instant access  for pay pal payments.
    5. Added more into the China region adverts.
    6. What's new in 2005
      The fundamental changes that are under way are:

      • Innovation - The site is becoming ever more data driven and real time which means moving human intervention for publishing to logon and take control. This is not a big step, but moving over a 1000 pages into a common format and an integrated content management system takes some time. With investment in leading Microsoft technology the technical architecture of the site allow for significant growth and fault tolerance.
        If the site did not matter that I could have used PHP and MySQL on the cheapest Linux server - all of that technology is free right!. So why is it that your bank, the news networks, ebay and the military dont use it? Going down the route of being a Microsoft partner and taking the best advice we believe that we can deliver more choice, quality and value.
         
      • Choice - When the system comes under load - it is those that have not subscribed that will be locked out and the optimum performance is guaranteed for the subscribers. This also means that there is no accidental access to pictures or X-rated content by minors. If you had a choice and you needed surgery would you get your mate to do it or a surgeon?
         
      • Quality - The feedback I have got from the members is that this site is special and unique  - though much copied there is still something special about belonging to this K9 community.
        So as a subscriber you get the best performance possible, access to more features, performance with the highest priority because you are worth it.    That might sound trite but I look at it this way: I really enjoy my coffee, I know that the coffee beans  for a cup of coffee don't cost $5 a cup and the growers sure don't get that!   But if I go to Starbucks and have a fantastic coffee, with the best service and I love it so much and can chat to my friends at the same time over a WiFi network, then it is different to having a free coffee that you can see through at some diner.    If this what the doghouse represents is of value to you then its worth having the best, otherwise anything will do.
        Being a subscriber are investing in quality, innovation and are part of something.
        more...
      • Value - There are members that are still students or  do not VISA cards or bank accounts and so on.
        I have tried to cover diverse payment options and discount for students.
        There are of course people who want everything for free; since there is no such thing as a free lunch, the site is either paid for out of someone Marketing Budget or its just a hobby.
        There is no further content development on the old static site of some 1000 pages. The adverts remain free.
