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. :)
