Our developer Ben, just put up a bunch of new updates to the ActiveRain Real Estate Network. Pretty much all of them are based on feedback we recieved during the last week.
1. This last week we made a change so members only recieved points for 3 blog posts within a 24 hour period. This was found to be to confusing so instead of a 24 hour period, we do it by day with the cutoff being midnight PST.
2. Added "Tag Clouds" to both personal blogs, and to the view of the group blog. You can now see what tags are most popular and easily filter the entries by them.
3. Added email notification for new comments in blogs. When you create a blog entry or add a comment to someone elses blog you will see a checkbox "Notify me on comments". If this is check you will recieve an email when someone comments on that particular post. You can globally enable or disable notifications in your blog settings.
4. Added a hit counter to the profiles, just under your image.
5. Updated the search functionality, allowing people to choose what they are searching on (first name, last name, email address, company, etc). This should solve some of the issues reported with the search by users.
There were several other minor changes besides what is listed above. We're getting pretty close on forums, should have them up in the next couple days.
