New Item Votes and Unlocks
Here at Brickplanet, we know you guys like items, and a lot for that matter! This week we've started some new events for getting new items that now involve the voices of you and your fellow planetarians!
We hosted our first item unlock on Instagram this weekend, which required 100 likes. You guys broke through it and in turn the new unique item X-Ray Heat Targeting Elite Spec Lenses were released!
We've also started hosting our first item vote on our Twitter, where it's a battle between two fantastic looking accessories! At the time this is released the vote it still on and you can vote on which item you'd like to return here.
Overall, we're excited to be giving you guys these new opportunities and we'd love to hear your feedback and suggestions for future additions! Let us know in our suggestions subforum!
New updates were made to the Brickplanet website this week! These updates include some bug fixes and new features! Here's a few of the new things added in the update:
Serials for Uniques
Serials are now live and you can see them in multiple places, the trade tab, backpack, unique page itself, and item owners tab of the unique page have all been updated to now feature these important statistics. What's the highest serial you've found to own?
The Inbox feature has been fixed and is now available for all to use, use this nifty feature to have direct messages with Planetarians, or if you're feeling social start a group chat!
We hope you enjoy these new changes to the website and we hope to implement more based off your feedback and suggestions in the future!
