Not sure what exactly happened, but we had over 50 new members sign up today! Welcome all new members. Yesterday we changed out the home page with our version 2 home page which must have been the root reason. I don’t think we’ve ever had that many new sign up in a single day before. We are still cleaning up some areas of version 2 so you may see some minor changes over the next few weeks. Once we get all the little things changed, we are going to start working on the meal planner.
We have a few people update their status which is really cool to see. It would be great if more people would do that. We will be putting a page together that shows all your friend’s status at a single place. If you have any suggestions, please use the forum (and don’t be shy). Thanks again
We’ve been working on a better page for member profiles. We aren’t completely finished yet, but there’s enough to start getting your feedback. We are attempting to create a central place for you to summarize your account for you or others to see when they click on your username throughout the website. If you’re signed in, you can click on the Home link at the top left to go directly to the new page. Try it out and reply with feedback in the forum.
In an effort to help our members intermingle with each other, we have added the ability for members to add a brief update to their profile to let other members know what they are up to. These updates also allow other members to comment, enabling some discussions to form. This is similar to the "Wall" on Facebook.
Depending on the popularity of this new feature, you'll soon be able to share links to your recipes (to help promote them) and pictures about your cooking. To update your status, click on your profile and enter something in the box and click share. For now there is a single place where you can see everyone’s updates http://wegottaeat.com/people. We'll also surface your updates in other interesting places too.
Now go update your profile and check out other member's updates. Adding periodic updates to your profile will also increase your popularity.
