START A PETITION 27,000,000 members: the world's largest community for good
Nov 12, 2007

Hi Hi Hi everyone! There's a lot to bring you up to date on, so let's just get started.

The Daily Action page has been revamped and updated. You can check it out here (link will open a new window).

The "Members 'Most Wanted' List" has been reviewed by the Care2 staff, and several of the requests you've made have been answered. Here's the last MMW list, including what's been done:

Members are requesting that

(1) the Support and engineering teams to fix existing bugs and glitches.

(2) we have an option to customize the My Connect page (choose themes - like we can do with our groups, profile pages, and blogs - and select which modules to display)

(3) we have the option to send e-cards, messages, and green stars directly from the "My Friends" list.

(4) we have choices to check off when sending green stars, so the recipient knows why they're getting the star. (e.g. "Thinking of you," "Great post in _____ group," "Thanks for the star," etc.)

(5) we have an optional questionnaire that can be filled out when people leave a group, for the purpose of providing feedback to the Group Hosts, so that they (Group Hosts) can gauge how well their group is working for their members.

(6) we have a "BCC" (Blind Carbon Copy) option in personal messaging (for privacy, and to help reduce and prevent spam)

(7) we have a direct e-card link to profiles

(8) we have the option to send more than one green star per week

(9) we have the option to send green stars to all friends at once, without having to click on each profile

(10) we have the ability to email friends directly from the Address Book in our email.

Fulfilled Requests:

1. Increase default font size: Done! (Default is now 12pt [size 3])

2. Delete or edit own posts in groups: Done! (1-min. window to edit posts)

3. Group owners delete/transfer ownership of their groups: Done!

4. Hide sensitive groups from profiles: Done! (option to choose "private" in Visibility settings)

5. Group owners message/email group members only: Done! (Host Announcements and Group Email choices available)

6. Time/date stamps for Personal Messaging: Done!

7. Member Suggestion Box for "Click to Donate" site: Done!

8. Include name of Host in delete notices: Done!

9. Delete more than one post at a time in a thread: Done!

There are more requested features being developed, and bugs and glitches are being worked on, so please do stay tuned to for more updates.  Subscribe via RSS to the Blogline and get updates as soon as they happen; just look for the orange icon near the top of the page.

Have a great day and a great week, everyone!

I have another much needed request... can group hosts & co-hosts have an e-mail notification when a prospective new member is waiting to join a group. Not all of us have b'band and to check in all groups via dial-up to see if new members have applied, can take more time than some of us can usually spare. If we had an e-mail with a live link straight into the management console, it would not only save a lot of time, but prospective new members would not have to wait so long.

Hi Solent and Care2! :)Solent, thanks for this - this is a fantastic suggestion. This would be especially welcomed in groups where people have to apply to join. :)Thanks for dropping by and noting this, Care2. :) Hopefully, this is something the engineers will be able to release without too many problems. :)

WS, it seems we've been thinking on the same wavelength! I, too, have composed a list of Member Suggestions which Care2 has or is acting upon. I combined your MMW list and our Polls and came up with 29 items acted upon, and 10 in the works! I think its reassuring for people to know we are listened to by C2.
Thank you Wolf Singer for all your hard work!
And thank you Kristen for passing on our suggestions!
Peace, Teil
- PS now that i've figured out some things about shares, I can start a discussion about this at CdM!

Ok, here I go again *lol*
I think it is quite evident to many members that a lot of problems and misunderstanding arise from the bouncing of tracking e-mails from the system. Now with this in mind, what about a special section in the "My Care2" drop-down selection that will display all the tracking messages from the groups/threads selected. This method will totally eliminate any bouncing and still save just as much time as having to log into a webmail provider to read from there. Providing the message still has an active link (as in the existing e-mail tracking) to open a new page, nothing will be lost, but much will be gained. Including time saved by Care2 staff investigating and resetting members accounts *wink*
