We named our blog "Masterclasses," and we want to update the tabs (see attached) to match that title. For some reason our tabs right now say "Success Stories." Maybe we set it up that way in the very beginning or something. But I can't find where to change it in the settings. Anybody know how to do this?
Why is it that even we remove the blog option from a group menu, members can still make blog posts? They end up appearing in the activity stream but nowhere else on the site. This is also the case for chat events. Is there anything we can do about this? Thanks, Emma
Great article, Rosemary! I'd just add this: to 1. - No matter HOW you define success, your community must be visible in order to be successful. I've seen too many people hide their communities so that it takes a trail of breadcrumbs and a jungle machete to find it. to 2. - Completely agree that these are questions that are best answered before you start. We've seen a number of communities try to set up "premium features" on formerly-free features.
Excellent points and great thoughts to consider before starting an online community. An addition to 1: How do my forum users define success, and is this congruent with my definition? What is their baseline for success, and what factors will cause them to consider the community a failure?
I went to opposite approach. I purchased a UBB license from Infopop to give a few friends and I a new home and blindly jumped in with both feet. I can't thank you enough for giving a complimentary license to Leo Laporte. That was my intro to the world of Social Strata.
Thanks all for the excellent additions to the list! LOM great one! If you're going to throw a great party, you want to focus more on the comfort of your guests than yourself, right? Harold, we've always been big fans of Leo. It's cool to hear that something we did a long time ago has rippled through the years And we've definitely benefited from having you around too!
Useful beginners tips Rosemary. I can relate a little of my own experience here if you don't mind. ( notice the compliment and the almost apologetic way of stepping in Groupee was the first Bloggers site I had ever joined with confidence. It was the newness of the Social network on offer that gave me a feeling of belonging. Prior to that I could not "break the ice" anywhere else. I think blogging is easier than joining a forum. Unless the forum is very specific in it's nature. In a blog you...
Well I don't really know what this place is for, but I hope everybody enjoys it and finds it useful and informative. Rosemary I know it makes travelling hazardous, but I wish it would snow here for Christmas.
Hi, How do I change the order in which replies to blog posts are displayed? Right now, they are displayed with the most recent replies first (reverse chronological order). I thought I saw a place where I could change this, but I can't find it now. Thanks, ST
When you block a person, they can no longer invite you to a private message or post to your profile wall. Replies and comments they make will be collapsed/hidden by default. Finally, you'll never receive email notifications about content they create or likes they designate for your content.
Note: if you proceed, you will no longer be following .
