Introducing the Social Feed
Calculating advertising space, affiliate capacity, and resources to properly price per industry?
DBenoit Hi Rosemary, I'd be looking to run ad offerings for paid sponsors/adspace buyers, and not necessarily Google AdSense advertisements. I have to admit, I have not yet reviewed the blog regarding advertising on crowdstack! For the purpose of creating financial projections for my business plan, I need to know how to figure out how much advertising space exists/can be created with the foundation plan (to start) from which I can figure out advertising rates based on traffic rates and industry. [ more ]
Rosemary O'Neill Are you looking to run your own ad offerings, or insert programmatic ads like Google AdSense in the community? Off the top of my head, I'd think @Yasmin might have some insights on how ads can work within Crowdstack. [ more ]

New digest version
Chris Wings Ok thankyou Ted. [ more ]
Ted @ Crowdstack Note: in my screenshot, the "All New Content" option is checked, but that is not checked by default. Members would have to opt into that option. However, "All New Content By Members You Follow" is checked by default. [ more ]
Ted @ Crowdstack Hi Chris- The main difference is that members cannot subscribe based on content type (in the new "digest" mode). Members can still choose to be notified instantly about all new posts, or about new comments/replies to posts they are following. Here's hwo the notification settings look when you switch to this mode: [ more ]

Community Beta Testing and Crowdfunding Experiences?
DBenoit Thank you guys, all really good information. I will have to digest it! I have the basic structure of the site laid out. It is geared toward fostering exchange and encouraging interaction between members with each subgroup (with the exception of "medical conditions in the field") having it's own introduction and event forum, and a separate discussion forum. There are also chat rooms set up for each subgroup, including each medical condition listed in the "medical conditions in the field." I... [ more ]
ST Hi, DBenoit. Thanks for giving us some more information about you and your goals in your profile . From your profile What's your community's big goal? The goal of this community is to foster the exchange of experiences, issues, information, and inspiration toward overcoming personal health challenges in the hunting and fishing communities. Have you found any places (physical or virtual) where like-minded people congregate? I'm picking up on Rosemary's thoughts about brick and mortar... [ more ]

Rich Melvin ANON_BM, you have perfectly described our situation with your truck site analogy. We run a site about model trains. Here is a small portion of the menu structure from that site: Train Forums Traditional 3-Rail O Gauge 2-Rail Scale Forum 3-Rail Scale Forum Tinplate Trains O Scale Narrow Gauge Forum S-Scale Trains Subways/Transit/Traction Real Trains Layout Building Forums Track Plans and Layout Design Electrical Forum Scenery and Structures etc. Someone who is into Traditional 3-Rail O Gauge...

ANON_BM Imagine a classic truck site if you will... it would be broken down by make and generation... I may be interested in the "1st Gen Ford F Series 1948-1952", but the the Chevrolet C10 Forum, and now it looks like the only option will be to follow all trucks of all models and generations instead of the ones particular to me. Just as @Ted @ Crowdstack erroneously presumed I was a site admin, Crowdstack erroneously presumes they know best for notifications and removes features and flexibility. [ more ]

Delete a subgroup
Lori You're welcome, Amy! Have a great day! [ more ]
Amy, Member 7,672 Thank you kindly. I found in the end, I was looking from the subgroup not the homepage. [ more ]
Lori Hi, Amy! In your control panel, look for Subgroups, and choose the Manage link. Find the subgroup that you want to delete, check the box next to it, and scroll to the bottom of the page. From the dropdown, choose "Delete Subgroup(s). You'll be presented with a confirmation popup. Note that all the content from the Subgroup will also be deleted. Hope that helps! Lori [ more ]

How to Encourage Community Members to Post

Christine Geith ❀️
neil Thanks Rosemary for the tips. I especially like the Survey idea. Once upon a time, we used them to actually "survey" members about issues/ideas, but now I see that it's also a good idea to provide a point of easy-engagement. Update: We just posted a single survey question and got over a hundred engagements in the first two days One thing we've tried to do is assign "monitoring and response" duties to various members of our admin/moderator group so that every post gets responded to. These... [ more ]

[RESEARCH] The Secret to Successfully Engaging New Community Members
Rosemary O'Neill Great question! That sounds like a great idea for next week's blog post, perhaps. Meanwhile, if anyone else wants to throw in their own ideas on how to get people to contribute their first post, I'd love to hear them! [ more ]

Crowdstack: Accessibility In Reach
neil Thanks for making these changes. Please also look at your font colors on Crowdstack's pages as an "accessibility issue." Links in "light" blue are harder to read for some of us. It may be a screen or eyesight issue or BOTH but it's something I always notice when I'm on sites (like Crowdstack) which use pale palettes. (May I suggest you switch the two "blues" you use in links on Crowdstack. Use the lighter one for the hover color, and the slightly darker blue for the link's static state). I... [ more ]
