reBlogs now require commentary - 08/31/10 11:09 AM
The reBlog concept is a really good idea, if used properly. When we first launched it, that idea was that users could pass on information from their colleagues to their readers and put their own little spin on the content. If you reBlogged a post, it was our intention that you would add some commentary to the start of the post so that your readers would be made aware of what it was exactly about the post that you found interesting. You would let your reader know why you chose to share this particular post. Now you have to share something. (200 comments)

RainCamp Photo Contest - Win Free Stuff - 08/20/10 04:40 PM
It's friday, let's have a little fun......who's coming with me? Many of you 'Like' the ActiveRain Facebook page. There are 7,122 of you as of writing this in fact. Significantly fewer of you 'Like' the RainCamp Facebook page, 435 of you. Page RainCamp is pretty distraught about this. He walks through the halls of ActiveRain moping like a 7th grader who just got a bad haircut from his 9th grade brother. It's not pretty, and Page RainCamp's self esteem is in the toilet. (we know Page RainCamp is a 'he' because if a 7th grade girl actually let her 9th grade (90 comments)

ActiveRain Community Pages - Frequently Asked Questions - 08/10/10 12:42 PM
Question: What constitutes a community? I live in a really small town, is that a community? Answer: As it relates to ActiveRain community pages, a community can be considered anything around which people commune (OK funny guy, what does that mean?) that is more specific than a city or town. Some 'communities' will be actual geographical areas within a town or city. In Seattle for example, there are known areas and ways locals break down the city. Communities such as 'Queen Anne', 'Wallingford' and 'Ballard' are well known and obvious communities. However, people may choose to get more granular with how (42 comments)
Featured Hyper-Local Posts - Elevating the Quality of Hyper-Local Content - 08/09/10 09:09 AM
We have something fantastic to share with you this morning. Hot on the heels of the release of community pages on ActiveRain, we have implemented a system to reward members for writing great hyper-local content. We will now have the ability to feature hyper-local posts. Hyper-local posts that are featured will be awarded 300 additional points and the blog post will remain sticky at the top of the community page. Featured hyper-local posts will capture the essence of an area and serve to enhance the visitors understanding of the community/neighborhood/area about which it is written. (Just a side note, because (118 comments)
Creating a New Community Page on ActiveRain - 08/05/10 03:28 PM
With the recent launch of ActiveRain Community Pages, we've had quite a few people ask us how they can create community pages within their cities or towns. (I've also had a ton ask us how they can get their area cleaned up and get duplicates, misspellings and just plain wrong information removed......we are working on a way for you to be able to report these things through the site and hope to have that out in the future) If there are communities within your town/city that you would like to add (maybe not even to sponsor, maybe just to be able (37 comments)
