There are so many new features it’s really hard to know where to even begin showing you, so instead let’s stall a moment and talk guidelines.
Yes, guidelines. There’s lot’s of people here and we want to make sure everyone is protected, and safe. We have anonymous features, for professional discretion, but that doesn’t mean you can say <i>anything</i>. You’re used to this. Unless you work for SiriusXM you can’t turn on the mic and “f#^%ing s$*!” – you’d be fired on the spot.
So how do we moderate? Here’s a barometer we use – sure there will always be exceptions, which is at our discretion, but these are very good rules of thumb. And if we think you aren’t playing nice in the group – we will do something about it.
- Be respectful – treat everyone with respect, even when engaging in polite disagreement.
- Be engaging – when adding to a conversation, do it with the intent to honestly participate. Posts that are intended to solicit are just spam.
- Be discerning – you don’t have to comment on everything. Knowing when to engage in a conversation and when not to is one of the most difficult lessons of online participation.
- Be mindful – your activities online can be viewed by your community and the whole world. Remember that every time you hit “submit”
- Be humble – the web is full of smarter people, more active, and older communities. You can learn and engage more effectively by following and participating than through dominating and controlling others. There’s no need to bully or demean anyone.
Ok Now that I’ve had a moment to think about it all, let’s go back to the new features
More about New Features
Yup you can use you twitter & Facebook accounts to register quickly and sign back in. We won’t share your accounts with the community unless you want to – that’s up to you.
The besets question is “Do I need to use my real name” – we know that there is a level of anonymity wanted. We don’t care, and we won’t regulate. You can have your name as Peanuts McGraw if you want. ( we will moderate you a lot more often if your name is just down right offensive
The other big question is what will people see? For those signed in, and are friends they will see posts in shared groups, and if they are your friend, your latest activity. If they aren’t signed in, all they see if your picture, a name ( again doesn’t have to be real ) and a user name.
When you find a user, you can friend them. You both have to agree to the friendship before we show you each others activity. It’s not Twitter here.
Yup – you can send private messages to other folk. Just go to their profile and click “Private Message” You’ll see if you have any messages waiting for you down the right hand side beside “Unread Messages”
We include auto embed. If you want a link embedded, put it on a line of it’s own.
Take a look at this http://youtube.com/something
That you tube link will become embedded. Try other sites like YouTube, Blip.tv, Vimeo, DailyMotion, Flickr, Viddler, Qik, Revision3, Photobucket, Scribd. And if you try one and it didn’t work, let us know. And we’ll work on adding it.
This is pretty much your straight forward Community Forum. Post things, share things, join group, etc…
One of the biggest features here is the ability to post as anonymous. We still want you to sign in ( to avoid spam ) but once you’re in, you might want to say something that could be… well… sensitive. We add this feature for The initial activity and for blog commenting.
See anything you think is funky? Click the little flag – and we’ll be notified that what’s been posted might not be appropriate. And we’ll handle it.
