MobileRead: New features to group discussions

Today we did a few upgrades to our server which also include the addition of a few new features and improvements:
  • Social Networking
    • Messages in community groups are now threaded into 'discussions'.
    • You can subscribe to group discussions and receive email notifications on new messages.
    • Group discussions are now ascending, which is more intuitive in threaded discussions.
    • A group can now belong to a category, allowing you to find the groups that are relevant to you.
    • A group can have an avatar now.
    • Profile privacy: You can now configure which parts of your profile is visible, and to whom.
  • Private message sorting and filtering
  • Private message history
  • Private message quick reply

Ooh, wow, it all sounds pretty nifty! [wanders off to check out the new features...]

Cheers,

These sound pretty interesting, Alexander. Thank you for always thinking ahead. And, just to validate that saying about "no good deed goes.....", uh, I would personally find it rather cool if you considered adding one small item to the the privacy options: karma. I don't mean removing the karma "say thank you" button. I mean the display of the total karma one has received. It always make me feel like a damn fool. Hey, no snickering out there!

brilliant work, as always alex ! these are some really great new features. thanks particularly for the new search and sort feature on private messages, it's like you read my mind with that one !!

and subscriptions to social groups is brilliant as well !

thanks again for all your hard work, this forum gets better and better.


...actually, maybe i shouldn't thank you, i spend too much time here as it is !

Ok, so is this like a sub-forum with it's own members and messages? For example, would running the MobileRead book club as a group be a better idea than filling the reading recommendations forum with those post? Although I think the book discussion threads enhance that formum area.

i think the book club threads should stay in the reading recommendation forum because they are more visible there. however, you could also create a BookClub group if you like, for discussing other aspects of the club.

i think your description of the social groups is fairly accurate, they are just ways for like-minded people to congregate and have discussions together. since many people might not know about that function of the forum (and, social groups are not accessible to non-registered members, if i've understood), and since i agree with you that the book group discussions enrich the Book Recommendation forum, i would keep all the main Book Club discussions there.

Social Groups seem to be in a position to be created by the members of MR ["Silly Ministry" as example] - whilst others are fixed such as the forums ....
