Start a community - Testers needed

jamie

Our platform is branching out a little.  After developing this platform to be very town specific, I've discovered that the format lends itself to virtually any group. 

I have mentioned this concept before - now the website is a bit more user friendly at describing the concept:

I still have a bunch of "How To" videos to create.  Here's one I just put together:

It provides a space to gather info that's easily accessible and organized.

Give it a try!  Once you set up a site - you can easily get to it by clicking on the "Communities" link at the top of the page.

Here's the direct link to start a public or private community.  Please give it a try - even if you don't need a community - would love to hear your feedback on how easy the set up process was.

We'll be adding a better way for you to visualize how the color codes will look.  Hope to launch more "how-tos"  videos shortly.

OK, I submitted a trial Uncaged Bird Community. Now what?


jamie

I'm just testing out - was it easy to create - did you get the email?  Do you understand how to update things such as the colors - invite people - add a new discussion?

I've been working on making the community creation process as easy as possible.  I didn't see your request go through though.  I see a few others did.

In the end - you will have created a space where you can organize yourself or collobrate with others keeping info in one place where it's easier to access then emails or texting are.  

I'm even trying to figure out different wording for it.  It's a great organization tool - with a forum at the heart of it.  But the term forum and message board are too generic for it I feel.

Tried again, didn't fill out calendar or contacts because it didn't seem relevant and when I click submit it brings me back to the same form blank.  Using my HP laptop with Windows 10 if that helps.



jamie

you need to select one category from each - if you don't need those sections - you can turn them off afterwards.  I don't see how you were able to bypass selecting one - unless you selected the blank one and didn't fill anything in.  In which case it should force you to write in a category and give you the following warning:

Tried entering in a different spot on the introductory page,  opening page I pick Public, then ion the next page instead of the top  , "ready, click here to create your community, I went down the page to the sample categories and entered under community group and clicked on start.. Filled out all 3 categories, agreed to terms hit submit and after that it shows me a blank form again. Let me know if it shows up. Again, titled The Uncaged Bird, its public, bird watching photos stories, Berry Blues etc.

Done. Let me know if you need any kind of feedback. I only created the community. Didn't invite people or start to set it up yet.

 Thanks so much for the feedback - I'll send you a PM for more info.

Do the posts in one Community appear in the others? I clicked on Morristown, and it seems to be the same as MOL.


jamie

yes - at the moment - the other town sites have a lot of shared categories - we're looking for people to take the other sites over to customize the sites and add more local content.  One major difference with our town sites is that the moderator can generate money off of ad sales.  When you run a FB community all revenue goes directly to Mark Zuckerberg.  I hop to make a push for moderator of these sites soon as well.

Morganna - we had a bug with the public option.  Try now.  Thanks for your help!


Morganna

Success, The Uncaged Bird is in flight.

Now to find some posters!

I DID IT!

Now, what do I do?


jamie

Thanks for trying it out - testers like yourself are greatly appreciated at the moment.  I'll have a few more "How to" videos and updates to try out.  Maybe in time you'll discover a purpose for it.

Finding a use for the community is completely up to you, and it's another reason for this thread is to find out how everyone IS using it.  

At the moment, I find it's great for personal use.  It's a really good tool to keep organized.  For instance - Simone and I have a community.  We have shopping threads when we think of anything specific we need to buy.  I created a thread for my pool opening which I track the steps of getting the chemistry right.  It's a good way for me to track progress this year, but will also be great for next year to see all tips and tricks I did this time around.  So, if you take this point - what would be my other option - how would I organize info and pics in a way that would be easy to access down the road?  This is a great solution for me.

So - there's no pressure to use it.  It's there when you need it.

so, just jump right in? smile
