Upcoming shows on the homepage

Upcoming shows are now on the homepage
Currently shows the next day's worth of shows. I'm sure I'll be tweaking this a lot over time.
More stats tracked [beta only]
Beta stats are now tracking likes, comments and stickers (gifs) added
Icecast end of life date = April 30
Speaking of beta, move over already please!
I'm not going to renew the server at the end of April, so please move over immediately.
I promise it takes 5 minutes total to make the changes in BUTT and other tools.
Removing some listings from homepage
I'm going to be doing some housekeeping to take down non-active hosts.
I'll put them back later when these are active again.
Prankcast staff can now help you with profile / show setup
I am making some changes that will allow you to get preemptive help from site admins setting up your Prankcast settings, if you want it.
For example, if you don't have time to schedule your shows, but have it listed publicly somewhere else, we can do it for you.
This is intended to be helpful only. You can opt out of this at any time, and override any content created for you.
To modify these settings go here: https://prankcast.com/app/settings?panel=useradvanced
Youtube clips were going over our API quota, so I'm caching the first page of clips for 12 hours to help stop that from happening.
If you upload a clip and want to override your cache, there's now a refresh button that only owners can see, on their clips page (next to the page title)
Only homepage featured users can trigger global alerts in the prankcast show-alerts channel moving forward.
Users not on the homepage will still alert their specific followers.
You can now link a few folks together in the embeddable player instead of just embedding one user at a time.
If any of the users in the list are live, the live show will automatically be displayed to the user.
You can toggle through multiple users with the new paging control that shows up when multiple results are passed in.
This is useful if someone wants to promote a bunch of hosts at once (like what currently happens on worldofprankcalls.com).
This should help some streams get more external visibility to new audiences.
Other incremental tweaks
Schedule settings can now be found under Account settings -> Broadcast Settings: https://prankcast.com/app/settings/broadcast?panel=userschedule
Some modal windows now have the background darkened out, to make it easier to see what is in focus in the modal and what is not.
Added a comprehensive dynamic sitemap to help drive more SEO to user's profiles so they capture more listeners.
Added a menu placeholder for reels (coming next)
Major fix to how new user accounts are created that should hopefully fix a bug where some accounts randomly dont have avatars.
All images uploaded by users are now stored in a user-specific folder (eg. avatars and show banners currently). I'll allow users to manage these at a later date.
Switched to a hover state for menu dropdowns on user profiles. Feeling cute, may remove this later.
