Changing Features: inkpop Redesign
Posted by inkpopbecki on October 22, 2010
So as you know we are in the last stages of our inkpop redesign and we want to keep you up to date on all the upcoming new features and functionality you will see on inkpop when it is live in December. As well as some changes to the site. We want to hear your feedback. Any thoughts, let us know on our Changes Forum.
Swap Box: Now you will officially know who is and is not open for swaps.
Categories: As you guys saw from last week’s reveal of the new homepage, we are breaking up writing into three categories: Fiction, Poetry, Nonfiction. Each category will have its own Top Picks List.
Rating Comments: You will now be able to rate one another’s comments. This feature will be open to everyone—not just the author of the project—so that you can judge who writes good reviews. If the author gives a critic five stars for saying, “Loved your work.” You can counter that by giving the review one star for not being specific enough. The more you rate the more accurate the ratings will become, which will lead to…
Critics Leader Board: We are going to start a new leader board for critics much like trendsetters. So now people can find others who are really good at reviewing and ask them for honest feedback. Ranks will be a cumulative score based on the ratings of all a user’s reviews.
Bookmark: Ever had to stop a project mid-chapter because you had to go to dinner or do some homework? Many of you said you wished there was a way that you could pick up where you left off. Well now you’ll be able to. Every project is now going to have a bookmarking feature, so you can actually return directly to the page you were on the next time you come back a project.
WHAT YOU WON’T SEE
Watch List: The watch list as we know it will be going away. Instead we will have the book mark, so you can keep track of projects as you are reading them.
Character Chats: Character chats will not be going away, but they will be given their own section in the forum. Character Chats post outside the delegated area will be moved. So those who want to participate have a defined location and those who do not can avoid that section.
