News From The Lab - Fridae Fresh + Tribes

If you go down to the woods today, you're sure of a ... well, fairly interesting at least ... surprise. That is, if you think of our Fridae Labs area as ... the woods.

Let's ignore my slightly-flawed metaphor for the moment. :)

New Stuff! Fridae Fresh

We know it can be hard to find the newest content on Fridae, so we've added a new section to the site recently, called Fridae Fresh. This is where you'll find all the freshest content users have posted to their profiles, showing the latest photos, the latest profile updates and the latest blog entries.

The pages are updated a few times an hour with the latest content.

Fridae Fresh is considered beta for now.

Fridae Tribes Update

So far the response to Tribes has been great! You've created lots of new Tribes and we've seen some surprising groups forming. (1JAPAN - we had no idea you guys would grow to become one of our biggest Tribes!)

Today we also added some new goodies to Tribes.

A new menu option - Subscriptions - is now available in each Tribe. This allows you to subscribe to various emails and notifications for the Tribe. At the moment you can opt to receive the daily email of all the Tribe's activity (who joined, new messages, new photos and photo albums), but in the future there'll be other options.

Tribes now display the identities of their Tribe Masters and Administrators in their pages, so you know who to contact if you have any problems.

Member profiles now display the Tribes that the member belongs to (only showing public, listed Tribes). This is a function we were putting off deploying, but with such a great response to Tribes, we felt it was important to start displaying them in your profiles.

Lastly, we've added some featured Tribes to the right hand side navigation of the Tribes pages. From time to time we'll update the featured Tribes list. There's no formula here, its just Tribes we find interesting. (Everyone should go join Gaymers now!)


Remember, these features are both considered beta - we want your feedback. Let us know what you think in the comments section on this post, or use the Contact Us page to report a bug.

Finally, on a personal note: thanks to everyone who listened in to Technogaze last week. :)

I'm on Technogaze on Monday night!

Just a quick heads-up for the Fridae community - I'll be co-hosting Technogaze on Joy 94.9 in Melbourne this Monday (November 9).

Joy is Melbourne's only LGBT-oriented community radio station:

JOY 94.9 is an independent voice for the diverse lesbian and gay communities. We enable freedom of expression. We break down isolation. We celebrate queer culture, achievements and pride.

Technogaze is all about gazing into the past, present and future of technology. We'll be talking about technology, gadgets and computing news and sharing our views and opinions on the week's happenings, and there's a feature discussion each week.

Want to listen in?

Joy is broadcast on 94.9 FM in the Melbourne metro area.

You don't need to be in Melbourne to listen in, though! You can listen live on Joy's website at any time no matter where you are around the world: http://joy.org.au/listenlive

7pm Melbourne time is:

4pm in Singapore and Hong Kong

5pm in Tokyo

8am in London

3am in the US (Eastern)

Midnight in the US (Pacific)


Podcasts of past episodes are also availlable! http://www.cpod.org.au/page.php?id=113 (you'll also hear me on the July 20 episode)

You can send us emails and tweets while we're on the air, too - I hope to hear from you all :)
