We hope you’ve all had a great weekend and that you’re ready to kill it this week. We sure are! It’s Monday again, which means we bring you a hot update:
We now have default channels. When you first sign up you will now land on the strongest channels – those with the most active users and the best content. This means you will be able to meet people with your same preferences and discover what’s happening on CS even if it’s your first time on the site and you’re still trying to figure it out.
Talking about figuring out – we’ve included some “stamps” with helpful information to help first time users understanding what belongs where.
As I mentioned last week, Adrian and Jamie were indeed cooking something. If you’ve been online lately you’ve probably noticed some style changes in the sidebar. Looking prettier than ever.
This week, the team will continue working on some tasks we started last week such as the members bar, the admin controls or the activity update that will get emailed to our users on a weekly basis.
We will also be working on data gathering – as you already know, we were not supposed to cater for US Universities just yet, but due to an overwhelming response, we’re putting all of our efforts on it and we’re trying to get your courses and classes ready as soon as possible. We’ve also noticed (with the help of your feedback) that some courses are still missing or that they aren’t absolutely accurate in the UK. We want to get them all right so we will keep working on this, but please continue to let us know if you can’t find your university / course. Remember you can not only create your own groups but also your classes, so feel free to help us out with those if you can’t find the right one for you!
This week, we will also communicate who will be the ambassadors for 11 London Universities. We’d like to thank everyone who showed interest and got in touch. We really can’t wait to work with you guys – we’ve got great plans for the new academic year!
– If you’re studying in London and you’re interested in the Ambassador Program, drop us an email with your CV stating the University you will attend and the name of your course / year you’re on. You can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org / email@example.com -
I’m trying to keep it short and sweet this time so, that’s all folks!
You can read me again next Monday.
