There's been a few updates to the site today.

One change you'll notice is the entered page containing your giveaway entries has been split into two sections, Open and All, for performance reasons. The page will now load far quicker for anyone with a high number of entries. These sections can be accessed using the dropdown in the top right of the entered page. The Open page will display all of your open entries, ordered by the end date of the giveaway. Similar to before, this will allow you to see what entries are ending next, and if you need extra points, you can remove entries from giveaways further down the list that are not ending for a while. Then as the name suggests, the All page will display all of your giveaway entries, ordered by the time of entry. This will be useful if you accidentally enter a giveaway and need to quickly find your last entry. The page also displays the number of points beside each entry now, since I've seen users request that feature a number of times.

Other updates to the site today were also to help improve load times. All pages across the site will load about 50-150ms faster, so it'll feel a little more responsive when you're browsing.

Nice. Just saw the change to the entered page a few minutes earlier and was confused for a minute as to where my ended entries went.

Very cool. Have been feeling that some pages have been quite sluggish.

Nice update, but there is one problem.
The section “open” is sorted in the same way as before, by the end date of the giveaways.
But the “all” section is sorted by the date of entry into the giveaways. It's a little confusing.
I would like them to look the same...

I would like to see the entered giveaways at top, just like how it was before. This is... tiring.

+1 came here to say this. Please make it as it was before, first the entered ones, then the finished ones.

Kind of agree, but I would add that there should be a way to sort by either way (like button or clicking on header), yet default should stay old way

The problem is that now you can't easily see which giveaways have ended recently.

Can you please add a third option that works like it used to? All giveaways, sorted by end date, with ended ones at the end. I'm sure many people got used to how it worked, changing that is just confusing.

Same as PoeticKatana said in this comment, I like to see how many entries did they end up with, and sometimes who won, and what people write in the comments.

I know, what would it achieve, but still don't know why do you do this. I think the new lists are more useful for regular people. I had no idea you guys like to check old giveaways for some reason...

Why, you ask? I don't know, part curiosity, part OCD? I just like looking at stats. Sure maybe it's not very "useful" but I just like doing that.

Any chance to add there a game entered counter to see for example 5 most entered games of all time?

It's not exactly what you're asking for, but ESGST can show you how many times you've entered for a game :)

I am probably stupid, but I set that on and only thing I see is entries in timeline for the concrete giveaway I look at.

I don't know how long ago this change was made, but I noticed that clicking the "more giveaways" magnifying glass now shows giveaways for the game that have ended instead of only showing the game's currently-running giveaways. Can you change this back, please? It's kinda confusing.

it shows all giveaways, open and ended, by default, if you wish to only see then there is option on left - "Open"

No it doesn't. The only options given to me are "Available," which is default and still shows ended giveaways, and "All," which includes giveaways above my level (both running and ended).

I meant left menu not right dropdown :)

All
Coming Soon
Open
Closed
Deleted

but if you clicked the button from running giveaway then it is weird, you mind sharing which game/giveaway you talk about?

Ohhh, I didn't realize the left menu changed after clicking the icon. I still think it should default to Open since the archive already lets users see past giveaways for specific games.

The "Open" list doesn't show unlisted giveaways I've entered, is that intentional as when I click all they appear again.

The load time for entries is ridiculously faster now. Thanks, CG!

Does the page no longer show deleted giveaways that we were entered in? It's not a big deal because I didn't really have an important use for it, but I did find it interesting to be able to see who was deleting giveaways that I entered.

Also, like a few others have mentioned, I don't like how it is sorted when viewing "all". I find it very confusing and would prefer the option to sort it by the giveaway end date like it used to be. If this causes server issues for some reason, then I guess it isn't a big deal since I didn't use it that often, but I would definitely prefer it that way.

Thanks for working on the site. I know people sometimes complain that you don't do enough, but I am happy as long as the site stays up and continues to work. I don't know if the site has become a burden for you, but if it has, I would prefer minimal updates to keep it running rather than losing it completely.

i think the name "active" would be better then "open" since i confused it with giveaways that arent limited with groups or links

Yea I just noticed. At first I though it was some problem and reloaded 2 times:). But you are right now it loads fast. I guess good change because of that:).

Ps. Only minus that you can not see what GAs you entered (or probably deleted?) and how they ended (how much entry), but it is not so important:).

Thanks a lot for the update! My Entered page was taking about a full minute to load every time I reopened my browser, and occasionally it would give up and time out instead. I thought something was wrong since things got much smoother again yesterday 😄

Did that update changed way how are entried giveaways counted? I noticed now counter go up each time you enter running giveaway. Was it always like that? I thought it counts when entered giveaway ended.

I'm quoting a post JohnWickTheQuick made up there, because it has been ignored and it's driving me crazy.

Please bring back the way entered giveaways worked before, where the ones that are still active come first and I can see all the ones that already ened afterwards. It's such a mess the way it is now.

The problem is that now you can't easily see which giveaways have ended recently.
