This is the first Members "Most Wanted" List of 2007. Below are the tools and features the community is requesting.

Members would really like:


(1) Customization of the My Connect page (to be able to use themes, like we can do with our groups, profile pages, and blogs)

(2) Options to delete or edit our own posts in groups (this has been a long-time request from members)

(3) Group owners to have the ability to delete or transfer their groups, themselves (* Hosts may now transfer groups themselves; ability to delete still requested)

(4) An option to hide groups that are sensitive from their profile. (Perhaps a button that says "Show" and "Hide" on our profile page?)

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

(6) 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.)

(7) To change the default font size from 2(10pt) to 3(12pt). This has been a long-time request from Care2 members, as there are many with impaired vision who have a great deal of trouble reading small fonts.

(8) For the BETA areas on Friends lists and Group Members lists to be completed.

(9) 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.

(10) Provide "BCC" option in personal messaging

(11) E-card link to profiles

(12) Time & date-stamping of personal messages

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

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

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



Thanks so much for all the new features and for everything you're doing for us, Care2.  It's all very much appreciated!

From Care2 Feedback and Suggestions: Host Announcements:

We recently did a soft-launch of an important new feature for Care2 Groups: Every group now has the opportunity to have its own mailing list (often called a "listserv"). We'll soon be doing the "full launch" of the service, so we wanted to give you a little more insight into where we're going with all of this.



Why Mailing Lists?

We surveyed Care2 Group Hosts and leaders of small nonprofit organizations and identified this feature as one of the most important tools we could add to our site. Most members of groups, whether here at Care2 or elsewhere, frequently check their email but only occasionally visit the group's homepage. Thus, the best way to help keep the most group members informed and connected is via email.



Listservs also traditionally come with associated hosting fees/hassles, so by bundling this with our free group tools we hope to provide a simple, effective solution.



Mailing lists vs Discussion Forums

Our new mailing list service is an extension of our popular discussion forums. If you like the way the discussion forums work today, nothing needs to change - you can choose to interact with them exactly as you have been. But now, in addition, you can also receive the discussion posts directly in your inbox, or post to a discussion from your email. The mailing lists functionality is simply more convenient for some people.

ANNOUNCEMENT CONTINUES - PLEASE CLICK LINK AT TOP

We have quite a lot to catch you up on, now that the Blogline is up and running again, so let's get to it.


Members "Most Wanted" List is as follows:


(1) Customization of the My Connect page (to be able to use themes, like we can do with our groups, profile pages, and blogs)

(2) Options to delete or edit their own posts in groups (this has been a long-time request from members)

(3) Group owners to have the ability to delete or transfer their groups, themselves

(4) An option to hide groups that are sensitive from their profile. (Perhaps a button that says "Show" and "Hide" on our profile page?)

(5) Group owners and/or Co-Hosts to have the option to email or netmessage group members only. This option would make it much easier for owners and Co-Hosts of large groups to stay in touch with their members, rather than having to discuss group business with the entire network. It would also save time: Group Hosts wouldn't have to search out email addresses or send Introductions to people who aren't on their Friends list. (*IN THE WORKS!)

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

(7) Group Hosts to be able to include a reason for deleting a post, so the poster knows why their post was deleted.

(8) 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.)

(9) To change the default font size from 2(10pt) to 3(12pt). This has been a long-time request from Care2 members, as there are many with impaired vision who have a great deal of trouble reading small fonts.

(10) For the BETA areas on Friends lists and Group Members lists to be completed.

(11) 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 guage how well their group is working for their members.

(12) Provide "BCC" option in personal messaging

(13) E-card link to profiles

(14) Resolve existing site problems before bringing in any more new features

(15) Time & date-stamping of personal messages

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

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

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

(NOTE: If you would like to add to this list, you can do so by opening a thread at The Care2 Main Lobby )



In case you didn't catch it (although you probably have by now ), there have been some changes to your profile page, one of which is the addition of a "Comments" section on the right sidebar. Groups you host are more streamlined now, and include the group picture, and the groups you're a member of are now (finally!) listed alphabetically.

Other changes to the site include:

* email verification - to prove you're you when you log onto the site

* a new, more efficient Help Request form

* more staff in the Care2 offices - which will help tremendously in the management of such forums as Care2 Feedback and Suggestions , to name but one group

* a permanent fix to the problem of group hosts blocking themselves from their groups ( click this link for more info)



There are more upgrades on the table, and
the Care2 Support and engineering teams are taking many of the community's suggestions to the discussion table, so be sure to stay tuned for updates.

Thanks!
