Sign Up Fixes

I decied to go with the confirm the email idea. Now when a new user signs up , the server sends them an email with a link in order to confirm the email address. This should end any communication problems. The journals are also non-public by default, at least until the user turns it on by following the instructions in their email. This allows should finally end the empty journals in the list problem, that so many people were ocmplaining about.

The Post Party

So we were up all night celebrating the New Year. I finally fell asleep near Chris and Chris which ended up making me mega-allergic and asthmatic today. Unfrotunately, I ran out of inhaler last month and Matthew took all my natural astma medicine so I was out of luck and spent the day sleeping.

At one poin tI decided to chaneg the sheets but could get so little air that it actually tired me out and I had to go back to sleep.

Necessary Changes

The site will need some necessary changes for 2004 and one of them is the sign up process. It seems that people still don't realize that when you sign up you are expected to publish a jounral. There is no other reason to signUp. I think some people are still under the impression that you have to sign up to be a reader.

To deal with this and not end up having many empty journals in the list . I started turning journals off from public view. You can see a list of all of the hidden journals and other statistics at

The people with hidden journals can easily update and turn them via their update page. I think I am going ot make an automated system that turns your journal off when you sign up until your first post. Then if you ever reach 0 posts by deleting all of your entries (jesse) you will once again reach 0 status and then get hidden.

Zip Code Risk Statistics

The zip code risk finder that Rachel posted seems to have some gliches. For example compare 14217 and 14222. They are both in Erie county yet ones says the county is in the top 10% dirtiest and the other in the top 30% dirtiest. Test it out and see hwat you think.

elmwoodstrip.org e-cards

Currently, I own elmwoodstrip.org but it has nothing on it. I have finally decided to make it into a e-card site for which the users can upload cards and other people can send them and add messages. It will accept jpg, gif, and swf e-card. There will be thumbnails, etc. When you send it, they will be formulate dinto a web page that the recipient visits.

I think it is a great way to incorporate user art into the greater site and allow people to directly share that art. I could also see a e-card flash creation interface where multiple people can work on an e-card together.

image

Another possibility is having images that serve as a basis for a card design and then let people download and modify it in order to get multiple iterations on the same idea and see people's personality reflected in the content.

Does anyone else have any ideas to take it from there?
