Today we launched a new button on ActiveRain. The "Suggest Feature" button.
With the volume of great content and fantastic Blog posts being submitted daily from our RainMakers, we have created a new and powerful tool that allows members of the community to make suggestions for posts and articles they feel should be featured on our home page. This is a very powerful new tool, and with great power, comes great responsibility. :-) It is similar to the new Facebook "LIKE" button that we recently added.
As long as I can remember, the controversy of what does, and does not get featured has seemed a mystery or at best, a guess. ActiveRain's moderators have done a fabulous job in my opinion of sifting through the thousands of daily posts that go up on our network. It is a very difficult and time consuming task, and it's no longer humanly possible for us to review every post submitted by members for a potential feature.
The ActiveRain Community has been built and established based partly on our members "ideas and suggestions" and we're not changing our culture now! We are looking to our members, and the thousands of eyes (instead of just the few of our own) to suggest and submit to us, any posts you feel are worthy and have good content for our Feature Board. Now YOU (our community) can help us moderate and play a significant huge role in what our community stands for and represents.
By clicking on the newbutton, you'll be endorsing that member's Blog post, and sending us a link to consider for the coveted and infamous golden star. When you click on it, nothing will happen except the button will turn Grey. Behind the scenes, it will send the link to our staff for their review and possible selection. So here's your chance to help run the ActiveRain Feature Board. There is no limit to the amount of posts you can suggest to be featured, but you can only select the same post one time.
You may also notice that the "Flag" this post icon is no longer available at the bottom of each Blog post, we're currently working on a replacement option for reporting members concerns and flagging posts.
Our hope is that before members suggest a post, they'll keep in mind the culture, "The ActiveRain Weltanschauung" and the "Community Guidelines" upon which this network and vibrant community were created and built. What "BEST" represents not only ActiveRain and our community, but what Best represents us as an Industry. I truly believe that giving more of this decision to our members via this new option will benefit us all as a whole.
YOU have been "The Voice" of AR since its inception, and now YOU can be the "Eyes and Ears" as well. As we start relying more heavily on member suggestions, you may notice a change in the type of posts that make up the feature board. We're looking forward to your responses and responsiveness, and we're also excited about witnessing where this will take us in the future with the ActiveRain Feature Board. :-)
