    Arrow MoveToNZ New Member Features!!!

    Hi All,

    You may notice a new link on the link bar called Profiles.

    Members can now create a social networking profile right here! Create your profile, blog, even your own homepage! Add friends to your friends network to forge your international friendships

    I'll be making some tweaks to it, but this wont affect anything you do. Enjoy!!

    Wow.

    This is different.

    Looked a bit complicated to my simple mind at first, but am positive that if I try out various features one at a time we'll get there!

    Very clever!

    Some of the editing features like messing about with the colours or editing style don't work for me. In fact, they crash the site. You know how I like to experiment.

    If you network with someone what does it mean in a setup like this? And that Social action thingy, what's all that about? I know you can send a smile or wink etc. to someone but I was very disappointed that there was nothing on the end of it. I'd expected to see a little face showing the appropriate action. All it does is take you to that person's profile.

    I miss the old style profile facility purely because it allowed me to see what other people were doing on the forum e.g. if they were replying to a post I could hang around to read it before logging off.

    When viewing someones profile, click on the Forum Profile link and it will show you the old style profile.

    This is a bit of an experimental system, so we'll just see how it goes!

    Hi Mother Bear,

    Received the test PM from you. It just said "Mother Bear smiled at you." All very thoughtful and nice (thank you) but wonder at the point of it. Tried to send one back to you, but it would not have it and ended up sending to myself.

    I think you have to send smiles and stuff from the recipient member's profile screen, Glenda. I surprised myself last night by sending myself a smile while I was pressing all the buttons and experimenting. You can put a little message under it as well. Must say I would have liked a little smiley rather than a cold statement saying someone has done something to me.

    Taffy, you didn't explain what the networking facility is for.

    Those social thingys only work if you are on the other persons profile at the time of sending. Unless you're in to the likes of Facebook, they would seem pretty pointless!

    Oh well, I'll leave it to the vote, keep the system or bin it? It's no hassle, just experimenting!

    I think it would be fun for those who go in for all the interactive Internet stuff, but not much use to those of us who don't. There's no harm in it though. It's not eating or drinking anything so it can stay as far as I'm concerned.

    The networking facility is just so you can group together all your friends, to show how popular you are. It can link in with other forums etc, if you happen to be a member of any with the same system.

    I won't get much use out of that then.
