v. 3.02 - 08/03/12 - Further rearchitecting of code, minor updates.
v. 3.01 - 06/14/11 - Removed significant amounts of code and rearchitected code to be more efficient. A few features have been temporarily removed to allow for better rewrites.
v. 3.00 - 06/06/11 - Beginning of revamping of Game Secretary. Right now this is mainly in name only, but soon will include more substantial updates.
v. 2.83 - 7/07/07 - Added additional small features, mainly back-end.
v. 2.82 - 6/24/07 - Added AJAX to logged in page.
v. 2.81 - 6/24/07 - Added AJAX to the main page which allows the details page to be toggled on and off without requiring a postback.
v. 2.80 - 11/05/06 - 6/20/07 - Rewrote the general portion of the site. Now includes utilization of Microsoft ASP.NET AJAX as well as new layout and logo. Moved Update Page back to old ASPX page, CS was not working out as planned.
v. 2.62 - 11/04/06 - Removed the extraneous row next to Add Favorite/Add Boring Games. This was used to calculate whether this was already a favorite game for the logged in user or not. Because of some limitations in Microsoft's code it was not possible to easily make this column visible and at the same time still access the values, so the visibility was a compromise. But, after 1.5 hrs. or so I was finally able to discover how to repair this issue, so now the column is invisible but you can still see whether this is already a favorite or not.
v. 2.61 - 11/03/06 - Fixed an issue where everyone's games were showing up in the Favorite Games list.
v. 2.60 - 5/07/06 - Added My Games section to site. This allows users to create a list of their favorite games as well as the games they consider boring. This feature will soon include additional functionality which will make it even more useful (e.g. hiding boring games from your results, sharing favorite games with friends).
v. 2.50 - 5/01/06 - Registration is now optional. Its possible to view the games without registering. Fixed a number of small bugs.
v. 2.47 - 4/23/06 - Reminder emails now actually work.
v. 2.46 - 4/21/06 - Move Update History page to Community Server 2.0 to make it easier to update.
v. 2.45 - 4/21/06 - I've added a My Account page which allows you to update your email address as well as add or modify your website address, if you have one. It also lets you determine if you would like to receive an email reminder to use GameSecretary as well as on which days of the week you would like to receive this reminder. While this latter feature records your answers, the mailing implementation is not yet ready. So you won't receive the emails right away but this should be coming in the very near future.
v. 2.40 - 3/11/06 - Made administrative back-end changes.
v. 2.39 - 3/05/06 - Refined the contacts page.

v. 2.26 - 2/04/05 - Links are now hyperlinks.
v. 2.25 - 2/04/05 - Refined the algorithm that determines what games appear in the Game Generator. After I add some additional data to the database, it should be much more intelligent.
v. 2.22 - 12/24/05 - Added additional features to the search engine interface.
v. 2.20 - 12/23/05 - Added the ability to search the games using a search engine like interface.
v. 2.18 - 12/18/05 - Worked on refining administration area.
v. 2.17 - 12/17/2005 - Updated approve games administrator page. Revised the way GameSecretary presents games to prevent individuals from spamming the database. Updated database records.
v. 2.15 - 12/09/2005 - I've been working on some administration pages. This includes a page to approve games (games are added to the database as "unapproved", thus allowing me to make sure no one is trying to sneak bad content into the database), a page to edit games (revise the information), and finally a page to manage users. There's still a lot to do, but at least now I feel like I have an administration section.
v. 2.12 - 12/03/2005 - Fixed some sorting problems that were causing the games to appear in a somewhat random order. Looks much better now. Would still like to have it sort even more comprehensively in the near future.

v. 2.07 - 11/21/2005 - If one rated games multiple times it was possible that the game would show up multiple times in the weekly games table. This error has been corrected - games should only appear once now.
v. 2.06 - 11/21/2005 - Added a Contacts page that includes contact info.
v. 2.05 - 11/20/2005 - Added an Update History page to the site.
v. 2.04 - 11/20/2005 - Added the Tutorial page outside of the membership only portion of the site, while also keeping a copy inside.
v. 2.03 - 11/20/2005 - Corrected an error that caused the Game Generator to return all entries of a given game type instead of none when zero was entered.
v. 2.02 - 11/19/2005 - Development began around May 2005. On the 19th of Nov. after around 200+/- development hours GameSecretary.Com went online.
