Welcome Home...THANK YOU FOR BEING A PART OF OUR COMMUNITY

Changes to Activity Feed: Expect some changes to occur Monday, July 11

Working together with ning,, our service provider we are expecting some changes designed to give us greater flexibility in what and how items are displayed in Activity Feed. Thank you for your feedback  and comments. Be sure to check in sometime Monday to see the updates.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I'm excited to announce that the new Activity Feed is now live.

Here's a recap of everything that's in this release:

    Members can post a Status from the Main Page
    Members can comment and like photos, videos, blog posts, and statuses inline from the Activity Feed
    The Activity Feed is cleaner and that makes it easier for members to interact with content in the feed
    Videos are playable inline from the Activity Feed, and photo thumbnails are larger

Please note that all of these changes have automatically taken effect on our iKnife Collector, Ning Network  There will not be a switch to revert back to the old version.

We know many of youmay have questions over this new feature, and we'll be monitoring  progress throughout the week.

These improvements will make the Activity Feed a much better feature. We've already heard a lot of great ideas around how we can make the Activity Feed even better, including an option to See More items, see new items that have come up since you loaded the page, and the option to add photos, videos, and other content directly to the Activity Feed. We're considering additional improvements based on all of your feedback and are excited to hear more feedback as we roll out the new Activity Feed!

I like it, Steve. You can see what someone said without going to the actual page. Of course you may still want to just to get up to speed with the conversation. Being able to directly post from the activity feed is a great idea. I usually check that first when I come to the site anyway. It let's me know what others are talking about and looking at. That is how I come across a lot of pictures that other members have run across. Good to see the site improving. Best site and knife place on the internet.
Robert, give it some time and we may make a few adjustments but it will grow on you eventually. Remember, change is good fast change is better!

Thank you Billy, it really gives a truer picture of what goes on at iKnife Collector. Someone new might not know all this stuff going on in Groups,Blogs,Forum,Pictures and Chat. In the past you might just see a somewhat static list of activity. iKnife is multi-dimensional and we need to reflect that. A lot of members just miss out if they are not seeing what's going on. It's interactive, its real time and it is all about knives, how good is that? More changes may be coming so stay tuned!

steve it is a good ideal.but at first i thought i hit a wrong button and did something to my page.on the what you are doing now line it has the share with facebook or tweet was that also automatic?or did i hit the facebook share myself?it is great that ikc stays up with the times.you need to now days or you will get left behind.thats why ikc is on the forfront of things and others are trying to keep up.thanks for all you do keeping our site on the leading edge.....
Thank you stephen, now you can post a status right from the main page. I know it is a little different but with so much happening this change is the only way to accommodate everything, but bottom line is you can do lots more now from main page!

Hog,

I like it for the blog areas but not sure about it posting messages to people.  I think I liked that part better when it just said I left a comment for someone or visa versa.  Either way, it will certainly be easier for newer members to see whats happening

I agree, we'll try that and see if it's not a little better.

Hog, that's all good, just don't change too fast us old dogs move slow.lol
As much as I like it it does change fast, sometimes a little too, but we are in a dynamic fast changing industry and we should reflect that.

OK remember when I said I'd turn comments back to just comment between two people. Well it turns out its all or nothing, so I'm going with all and lobbying for a change, which is being considered, no guarantees though. You might say its a fluid situation...
