Remember Called Shots?

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

A couple of years ago here in the Rain there were "called shots" which essentially was a way readers could indicate to staff and others what they liked. It was simply a button that after reading a post you could hit if you really like or related to a post. I liked this. To me it was a tool that allowed those of us to do more than just leave a comment. Now, we can report a problem, but not affirm a post. Seems to me it may be time to bring back the good and worry less about the bad. just saying................

"Rich always tell me... "nothing lasts forever Beth"... doesn't matter if we like it or not... would like to see it come back but I doubt that will make it happen

Hi Beth. Richard might be right but nothing ever happens until we work for it either. TY   Sheila

Change happens even if it seems like a good idea to many.  That's the case with called shots. Maybe they helped the feature fairies discover new good posts?  Now we have Carol Williams and Kathy Streib as our master shot callers!

 

How's chico today......better and better each day Sheila?!!

I had all but forgotten the shot calling feature.  I am grateful for Carol Williams and Kathy Streib, who put out their weekly lists of great blogs.

I try to remember to "like" a post as well as comment. Another option we can tag Carol Williams and suggest she feature the post in her weekly round up.

What a nice idea - to like a post and encourage it to live on - rather than just reporting spam and trash

That sure would be nice, but like with most things in the world today, it is more about money than supporting those that are supposed to be supported.

It's my understanding that the like button (which took it's place) alerts staff like the called shots did and enough "likes" and it gets looked at and considered for feature... we just don't get notified like we used to.

Hi Sheila:

Yep I remember the Called Shots...I thought it worked well. But perhaps the like buttons are serving a similar purpose so the AR folks can see what really IS popular.

Hi Jeff. I think it is different and the people (staff of 1 or 2 ) choose the features based on their favorites. Anyway, enjoy the evening.      Sheila
