Hi everyone!

There are a few things you need to know about, so let's just get right to it.

2.  Care2 is currently conducting a poll about the Share Network, and your feedback is wanted. Please click this link (link opens a new window) to take the poll if you haven't already taken it.  Then, visit the Care2 Sharebook (link opens a new window) and share your opinions.

Members are requesting that

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

(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.

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

The last updated Most Wanted List was posted May 5/07.  It seems like it's time to provide another update, just so that Care2 doesn't think we've forgotten what we're asking for. 

Care2, for some time, now, members have been asking for:


(1) the Support and engineering teams to fix existing bugs and glitches, such as:

* Not receiving group emails

* RSS Feeds Intermittent or not updating at all

* Default Font Size Not Working

There are more bugs and glitches that have been ongoing for several months - and for some members, more than a year.

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

(4) 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) an optional questionaire 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) a "BCC" option in personal messaging (for privacy, and to help reduce and prevent spam)

(7) a direct e-card link to profiles

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

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

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

(11) groups which members host and/or co-host to be separated from the groups they don't host/co-host. (perhaps splitting the My Groups page would help?)

The Care2 Support and Engineering teams have been working very hard to resolve existing glitches and bugs. Some of these glitches have been resolved, but there are still some bugs being worked out, so please try to be patient while the engineers continue working to get everything up and running properly.

Should you find that features and tools aren't working, please fill out a Help Form and describe the problem in detail so the engineers can investigate. Make sure you include what you've done to correct things, too.

Thanks for taking the time to note this Most Wanted list, Care2, and thanks for working so hard to make things work properly for all of us.

Care2 is an active community, and polls are an important part of the pulse of this community.

Care2 has changed the face of polls by creating The Pulse, a polling station carrying current polls and offering members a chance to vote on them and leave comments.

This screenshot shows you what The Pulse page looks like. Click on it, and you'll be taken to Care2's new polling station.

Happy polling, everyone!

Wow! Get stuck with computer problems and go offline for a few days, and come back to a whole realm of new and interesting (and hopefully fun) features! There's a lot to catch up on, I see, so let's just get right to it, shall we?

Care2 has launched several new features and tools in the past few days:

* Care2 IM (Care2 Instant Messenger):

To disable this tool, simply go to your profile page, click "Edit Profile" and select the Notifications tab. The first thing on the page is the IM settings. Make your choice, and then click the "save changes" button. Give the system at least 30 minutes to "set" the changes, and you should be good to go.

* Increased default font (now size 3 [12pt])

* Embed videos into discussion posts:

To do this, Hosts must go into the Group Management Console, click on "Discussion Forum Settings" and check the box in the Web Forum settings. Click the "submit" button to save your changes, and you should be good to go.

* Edit posts (you have five minutes from the point of submission to edit your post)

* Friends list alphabetized by first name

For Group Hosts, Care2 has introduced a new tool allowing group hosts to:

* Option to make groups completely private

* View post history of any member in the group

* Add or view notes about a member (written and viewable by hosts only)

* Block or unblock members

* "new member" notification (allows hosts to see new members to the group by looking at the "view newest members" on the group home page, underneath the member list)

Reference Links:

Care2 Host Announcement

New Feature: Increased Default Font

New Member Notification

New Feature: Care2 Instant Messenger

New Feature: Edit your own post

New Feature: Add Videos to Discussion Posts

New Feature: Member History Tool


Now, all these new features means that some of the requests listed on the Members' "Most Wanted" List can now be removed. And with that in mind, here's the new Members' "Most Wanted" list:


Members would really like:


(1) To customize the My Connect page (choose themes, like we can do with our groups, profile pages, and blogs; select which modules to display)

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

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

(4) An optional questionaire 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.

(5) Provide "BCC" option in personal messaging

(6) E-card link to profiles

(7) Time & date-stamping of personal messages

(8) Allow for more than one green star per week

(9) The ability to send green stars to all friends at once, without having to click on each profile

(10) Ability to use address book in email to send a message simply by clicking on a person's name

(11) Mark the groups members host/co-host on the My Groups page, to separate them from the main list

The Care2 Support and Engineering teams have gone to a great deal of effort to provide these new features for the community. There are still some bugs being worked out, so please try to be patient while the engineers continue working to get everything up and running properly.

Should you find that features and tools aren't working, please fill out a Help Form and describe the problem in detail so the engineers can investigate. Make sure you include what you've done to correct things, too.


Enjoy the new features!

Care2 S.
Care2 has received 35 new, 756 total stars from Care2 membersCare2 has been awarded 7 butterflies for taking action at Care2


In a few days we will be launching the Care2 Instant Messenger!

This feature is much anticipated by our members and we are excited for the release. Members will have the ability to communicate with other Care2 members instantly without downloading any additional software. Members will also be able to tell if their ‘IM buddies’ are online.

How do I get it?

There will be nothing to install. When you log into your Care2 account, you will be logged into Care2 Instant Messenger. All you need is Flash enabled in your browser.

How do I "IM" someone?

Look for the "I'm Online" icon () next to your friends’ names and avatars. This tells you your friend is online. Just click this... (CLICK TO READ MORE)

Hi everyone!  The Care2 Support and engineering teams have been hard at work, and they've brought in two new features for group hosts:  Deleting multiple posts right from the thread, and a new Group Host Bulletin Board! 

  Multiple-post Delete option


  New Group Host Bulletin Board


These two new tools are designed to make things easier and more efficient for Group Hosts, and they're both very easy to use.  Feedback is requested and encouraged, so please use the links provided to give yours.

Thanks, and have a great day!
