It’s Cool New Stuff day here at Politix! Let’s take a look at what we’ve been working on behind the scenes.
Private Messaging: You asked, and we heard you. The most requested feature is finally here and ready for action – Private Messaging. Now you can contact other users directly to chat it up, swap email addresses confidentially, share your mama’s meatball recipe*, and generally do your thing!
So where are those messages?
Profile & Notification Menus: We’ve made it easy to find those new Private Messages, as well as the rest of your notifications, by adding a new drop down menu up there next to your Profile icon. You can also quickly access and edit your Profile and Settings by clicking your name up there as well. Handy, right? Bonus feature: Now your Endorsement stats are displayed on your profile too!
And since we’ve made it so easy to access your settings, why not add a….
Profile banner: Avatar schmavatar. Until now, Profile Banners were limited to our guest contributor profiles. Now everyone can jazz up your profiles and express yourselves with an additional, larger banner photo. Show the community what you’re about!
And last but not least…
Activity Stream: Keep tabs on who’s doing what and when. The new Activity Stream shows you exactly what’s happening across Politix at any given moment.
Enjoy the new features!
*Feel free to send that recipe directly to me. MEATBALLS!
