Admin has been a BUSY BEAR! We've been cooking up a bunch of new improvements and there are two features which I think will make your time on Alive Not Dead alot easier.
First, we've setup a new "autosave" feature. If you've blogged for a long-time, then you know how frustrating it is to accidentally lose a blog entry because you leave the page or you accidentally delete stuff that you don't mean to. It's happened to me as well and it's really frustrating. As a consequence, we've added a new feature that will automagically save your blog entry every five minutes. This "autosave" feature will save your ongoing blog entry in your "drafts" folder where only you can access it.
The "autosave" is done quietly in the background while you're still typing so you don't need to do anything in order to have it work. Once you're done writing your entry, just click "Publish entry" and you're blog entry becomes public to everyone. If you DO happen to accidentally leave your blog entry without saving it beforehand, the blog system will stop you first and ask you if you REALLY want to leave without saving your changes. It works just like a regular word processor or like Gmail and hopefully it'll save you alot of frustration and lost time. If a bolt of lightning strikes your house and your computer suddenly shuts off, you can pickup from your last "autosave" point by going to My Profile => Blog=> Manage Blogs =>
So go forth and blog freely -- and don't worry about accidentally losing your wonderful blog writing because it's all "autosaved" to [alive not dead]. Do you like this feature as much as I do? Send your love to
Eric for the great work.
The second feature I want to highlight will hopefully make it easier for you to search and find friends on Alive Not Dead. We've added new fields to the "Member Settings" page found under "My Profile" => "Settings" =>
"Member Settings".The new "Mobile number" and "Additional e-mail(s)" fields will make it easier for your friends to find you on [alive not dead].
You can provide your mobile number and any additional e-mails that you use (for instance, I have three emails that I've used in the past in addition to the one I registered on [alive not dead] with). This information is COMPLETELY private and NEVER shown to anyone else. However, people who know you can search for you using this information. Also, when they try to add you as a friend, they can verify that they REALLY know you by providing one of these pieces of information. This makes it easier for your REAL friends to add you in case they don't know your primary e-mail address. Thanks to
Edward for adding the new fields.
