New in Promoter: October round-up

Performance improvements for finding mentions

The number of sources that Promoter is crawling for mentions of your games is growing every month. At the time of writing this, over 3300 feeds are constantly monitored. These include gaming websites, YouTube gaming channels and places like reddit or NeoGAF.

Before the performance update, it would take up to one hour to parse through all sources. With the new improvements, fetching and parsing all feeds is now blazingly fast and takes only under 5 minutes.

Validation for manual mention entry

Promoter will now do a client-side check via JavaScript if a mention already exists in your account when you paste an url into the form field. That way you don’t need to fill out the complete form just to discover the mention already existed.
