Bling, Signatures, Stickies and super Chat Live!


We're excited to launch some new features today:

1. Bling : Members can now create online bling (small graphical icons) to show off their personality. You can use our online bling editor so you can create icons without any special software. You can put lots of blings on your profile, posts, groups, etc as well as trade, sell, or gift them between members. Who knows the possibilities - should be fun to see what members come up with. If you want some of my bling, go to my profile and take some! Click on the link on the main page to manage and create your own bling.



2. Signatures : You can now create signatures for your blog and group posts. This way people can know more about you when you posts.

3. Stickies : Group moderators can make their posts "sticky" so they always stay at the top of their group post lists. (no need to keep bumping posts)

4. Super HTML Chat : This upgrade to our standard HTML chatrooms will make text appear faster as well as eliminate chat "flicker".

Enjoy!

Question:

I created two Blings and and I am finding that other members are using the ones I created. Will there ever be a way that a Bling a member create can be kept from being taken by another member? Or is all Blings open to being shared? A Bling that a member creates for "themselves" is almost like a "personal logo".

Which by the way, personal logo's would be a wonderful addition for members to being able to inserting on a Blog home page or on their profiles. Almost like how the groups can add a photo to the main description page.


Andrew replies on 2/28/2007 10:10 pm:
Yes, you saw earlier tonight the circle with red line through it... that was supposed to be the icon you see if you're using a bling that is not your own (either taken or created). However, had a bug that made it tougher than it needed to be. So... tonight I'll code up something that is more correct (e.g., it will product your bling to be usable only by people who either take it from your profile, perhaps for a price, or you gift it to). The good news is that all the people who take your bling end up putting links back to your profile. These will eventually become personal logos (when used with post signatures).

Kinda cute - nice for the bloggers but will the gold and silver members really use this stuff ... only time will tell - I'd rate this a C+ but I'm sure the bloggers will like it. How's the "send flowers" feature working out?

Meanwhile, back at the Ranch - could we get the development team back onto fixing some of the earlier "improvements"? - like the sudden disappearance of the video uploader which now limits videos creation to folks with cable connections - ADSL just doesn't have the bandwidth to handle video frame rates to your servers.

And maybe fixing the Google privacy leaks for members profiles too?

Hey - if we didn't like your site we would walk and not bother complaining!


Andrew replies on 3/1/2007 10:03 am:
Hmmm... I thought the video uploader is still accessible as I see a few people using it. Sounds like we should promote it better! Thanks for the comment!

I love all of the NEW features available. Any more in the works? I have noticed changes to the VIDEO page as well.

However the "Live Webcam Search Form" doesn't work properly all the time. If you sort by location, member status... the results are still mixed up as well as numbers skipping. For instance - you sort live cams by "Member Level". The results you get will be the first few listed are Gold Members, then the Silver and Standard Members are all mixed up. The results are numbered and should be consecutive 1,2,3 etc... But the results are 1,2,11,17,23 etc... Where are the members in between? Why isn't the sort by location results accurate?

My point is that the "Sort By" function doesn't work properly.

The drop down menu offers different items to Sort by (newest, most viewers,distance,score): How about a "view all" option, How about a audio option? I love to search for live cams that have audio. I hope this gets worked on. Thanks for a good adult experience.

Happy Hunting, Got42DDD

Hi, Andrew. I took one of your blings . I love the sticky post part. This way I don't need to make Welcome thread part this and that anymore. I remember the first time we reached page 100, we needed to click on NEXT to be able to go to the next page because the page box was ( still is?) only good for 2 digits.


Andrew replies on 3/1/2007 11:08 am:
Thanks - I think box is 3 digits now?

luvpump,

Happened upon your blog today from a friend who sent me the link and am quite glad I found your writings.

I've checked out the "bling" and while i've not had the time to fully check it out or do any creations it looks like it could be a fun addition.

I have a couple of questions for you though. I moderate the group New England Greeters that's been around a couple of years now. I understand the "sticky" option and think it's a great idea. My question is this though, with the update the threads no longer pop to the top of the list with a new posting, thus keeping the more active threads at the top of the list. With the update they are now appearing in chronological order by the thread's original posting date. Thus making it so older threads that are still active are no longer appearing at the top of the list. Is there any thoughts of changing this back so that they are listed by "most recent" reply posting date again, being below any that have been "sticky'd"?

Also, I've been on A.F.F. for a time now before the smaller geographic chat regions were created. As I recall back then there were a few chat room "monitors" they'd warn people of breaking the COC and boot the "bots" out of the chat room. Not sure if this is something that A.F.F. would consider implementing again, but I'm sure that you'd be able to find some long standing members that frequent specific chat rooms that'd be willing to be monitors for the site. While this would take some doing on the sites part it would be totally doable, somewhat like the old "plus" system on a gaming site that used to have lobby chat areas for some of the games. They enlisted the assistance of certain members who met a set of guidelines and criteria to assist them in keeping the chat following the COC, a possible core group you might be able to ask assistance from are your active group moderators and associate moderators. I was a part of that program a number of years ago and while I won't go into specific details here if you'd (luvpump) would like information on how it worked please feel free to sending me an e-mail here on A.F.F. I'd agree with the other posters that the "bots" again are in high numbers, in the New England area chat room we typically have about 3 bots running at any given time, including the late night/early morning hours when there's usually only about 40 chatters. While "ignore" is an option to do so quickly fills up one's ignore list.

While typing this I tried the "goggle"ing of handles like one of the posters mentioned. I have a silver membership so not sure that makes a difference, but I was able to click on the "google" link and be taken directly to a modified version of the profiles - ALL of the profile information was there though it was just a difference in appearance.

Lastly, I agree with another of the posters here about changes being made without notification to the members. One prime example would be the recent "3 day" viewing of new profiles. Many of us who have "silver" memberships had that change made during a paid period of which when we'd paid that wasn't a part of the "silver" memberships restrictions. While I understand that updating of the COC and other offerings of the site are necessary. Why not send out a mass mailing like has been done recently for the site's contests? Another addition that'd be nice for "standard" members is while they see the "order form" page when they log in, have it show them if they have mail. I've seen quite a few new members on the site in the last few months that don't even realize they have the ability to receive mail here on the site if not a paid member.

Thanks again for the blog

the Bling editor isn't working for me right now, the tools to modify/paint/etc aren't showing up on the page as they were yesterday for us.

Second of all, the post listings in the groups have been messed up. While the sticky thread is nice, we'd like to have the topics show up again in chronological order of the last posts made by members.

As well, there seem to be repeated issues with members in various groups being banned by some system glitch - not the moderators. Can this be fixed, as well as the glitches in not being able to ban a member who isn't part of the group at a particular moment?

Thanks !

I quite agree with BBKG...

If it were simply "unfair," it would be another example of blind corporate decision-making that must be swallowed by legions of hapless consumers who either ante for the membership or get used to a "blog and chat" site...

But there's something that the "suits" didn't think about when they started diddling with the membership benefits-

As a Gold Member with a year-long membership, what makes them think that I want to log in, set up my cam, wait FOREVER for the cam to load, go into a room to see no "cam icon" next to my name, delete the cam, reload the cam, and THEN...

sit there playing with myself in front of my monitor image? There is NO ONE WATCHING!!! Why? Because MOST of the people on this site, including most of my 700 Friends, are Standard members and CAN'T watch...

Look at the camming rooms. The numbers are WAY down. And why go inside anyway? They are now CHAT rooms, not CAM rooms.

I can set a mirror on a chair and wank at my own image...

I certainly don't need a "hundred-dollar plus" membership to do THAT...

I agree with Northern, if my friends can't watch, why bother? why pay to be here.

Another gripe. Right this minute the home page says 1139 live webcams, click the link and it goes down to 450. But there are only 17 women and 58 couples actually listed. the numbering is out of sequence. if you start up chat there seems to be a lot of cams listed there but hardly any of them will connect. this has been going on for days. I realize broadcasting webcams, Can we try and get this fixed?
Thanks

Hey deeepocean2, i too am bothered by the live cam's not being right with the number listed. Furthermore, when I am camming it does not always show up on the public video screen. Only people who have hot-listed me see I am on-line, then they have to go to my profile page to see if I am on cam then, they click on view web cam.

What fun is it giving a live cam show, when the people don't even know you are on cam. I like a big audience for my oral lovemaking talents upon the lucky male of the day

Delighted to find you. I just did a post about blings. I can't find a really ripe red like the one on the rainbow which you click on. The colours come out darker. Some of the icons I click on like the circle and the square don't seem to do anything. But overall it's great.

About signatures

I've been trying to search for a place to create a signature...and all posts I could find lead to the 'BLOG' area. Finally, after countless days and deciding to create a 'test' blog there it was, the magical link I was looking for 'Signature'.

Here's the issue, I don't care to have a blog as I imagine many other members would also agree. Can we not have a link in the groups area as well to create a signature? Seems counter-productive to force us to create a blog to have access to the signature editor.

Bling = Ugh. I'm tired of chat rooms being filled with bots and now those who have nothing to say posting transitive pictoral images that convey nothing.

But that's just my opinion, apparently.

How about a post for HOW to create bling? I can use the drawing tools fairly well and have made several that way, but how does one insert graphics from elsewhere? Like the picture bling, etc. I'm not completely technically challenged, but I need a jumping off point here! Is there a bling class I can take lol? Help?
