New profile and contacts about to go live

By sMoRTy71 ·
Just wanted to give all of you a heads up that the new profile page with the contacts functionality is about to go live any minute.

So please take a minute this evening to fill out your interests, your bio and add some members to your contacts list.

BTW, to add members to your contacts, just go to their profile page and click the "Add to my contacts" link under their photo.

In our next phase, we will allow you to search for members by alias (instead of hunting for them). For now though, you will need to go profile to profile.

Let me know what you all think. Also let us know if you find any bugs.

Thanks,
sm

Wasn't that mentioned somewhere previously?

Maybe I'm getting old or something but I'm sure that we where told that we would be able to search the Peer Listings to add contacts.

But the My Discussing Button will be greatly appreciated!

What about

by house In reply to What are you, psychic?

"Start new thread" or "Ask a question" within the respective profile tabs. Please don't tell me that we're scrapping the tabs. The my discussions link, will it bring us to the old layout or the appropriate tab within our profile? I guess I'll wait and see.

Tabs staying; My Discussions coming back

by sMoRTy71 In reply to What about

The profile tabs are staying put. We are going to add a very thin Community-only nav bar (really just a line of small links) just under the big ad at the top of the page that has links to Discussions, Technical Q&A and the new page for searching for members.

There will also be links to My Profile, My Discussions, My Questions and My Contacts. These will be a little redundant in the profile area; however, we want to make sure that the relationship between Discussions, TQ&A and the profile stuff is clearer.

Plus, we want members to be able to move between these areas very quickly. The current navigation between these features is kind of clunky.

I am psychic. That was supposed to be a secret, though. Ssshhh.

Aren't you glad I'm in TRI?

Thanks for the updates!

I have 2 now,

by Oz_Media In reply to Discussions Started

Cool huh?

I suppose they haven't really kept track of all our discussions in the past.

Oh well, I was surprised to see the number of posts though. I used to laugh when I went to sites and saw some guy had posted 45000 times on a game site.

Now I see how they all add up.

It should be your true total

by sMoRTy71 In reply to Discussions Started

It is supposed to be your true total. If it is not showing the correct number, it may be a bug. I'll look into it in the morning.
