Hello Fanpoppers. I know this مضمون is late but figured I should still post it in the event that I hit on something that hasn't been covered سے طرف کی one of your fellow fanpoppers in an earlier مضمون یا فورم post (however unlikely that might be).
Here's a little bit of insight into some of the new things that آپ might have run into on Fanpop in the past few weeks... Video and image embeds
آپ can now embed a video یا image in your initial فورم post (and all of the subsequent replies). Just look for the "add an image" یا "embed a video" link on the فورم submission form. Each post is limited to one embedded item per post (we did this to keep things simple).
Hopefully this will help with some of the فورم games (caption contests anyone?) going forward. Save to favorites
آپ can already add فورم to your پروفائل ڈیٹس اپ "watchlist" (so that future thread activity appears in your ڈیٹس اپ event-feed). We have now added a "save" button that allows آپ to bookmark the thread to your فہرست of "favorites". Your personal فہرست of "favorites" can be viewed from your پروفائل page. Most جوابات filter
We added a filter to the "most replies" sort on the فورم index page. When آپ have enabled the "most replies" sort order آپ can now view items with the most جوابات in the last day, last week and for all-time.
جوابات launched a few weeks back at the beginning of March 2009. There are already several guides out there that are superior to anything I might write :-)
I will refer folks to the following unofficial user guides:
(though I differ with Harold in that I think that سوالات with single valid جوابات are valid)
For the most part we had anticipated جوابات being an area where a continuously updated عمومی سوالات could take shape. The سوالات would fall in that area between opinion/preference سوالات which would be asked in picks and the fact-based game that is the quiz. If آپ want to stump your دوستوں سے طرف کی testing their knowledge, use the quiz. If آپ want to find out what your fellow fanpoppers' preference is for a دیا issue, make a pick. If آپ have a specific سوال that آپ don't know the answer to, آپ can use answers. It's really a way of allowing شائقین to tap into the deep knowledge-base of other expert fans. Wondering what the song at the end of an episode was? Ask a question! Want to know when a movie's release تاریخ is? Sure, that's a valid سوال (imho). Want to know the best way to poach an egg? Also a good question.
Of course if آپ want to know "Who is the hottest?", I personally think this is better served as a pick. And no, for those of آپ still wondering, the actual stars aren't reading and answering our سوالات (at least as far as I'm aware). So سوالات like "Miley Cyrus can آپ میل ای me?" یا "John Krasinski will آپ marry me?" are probably not going to ever be answered to your satisfaction :-)
Note that each user may select a single answer as "best" for a دیا question. Once a response has sufficient user feedback it may be elevated to "best answer" status so that future visitors to the site might benefit from particularly good responses.
Also, in time certain respondents with a solid track-record may be recognized as experts in their field of expertise in a دیا spot in the "top answerer" module.
Finally we added some new content sharing functionality to the site that allows آپ to better share cool content آپ find on Fanpop with your دوستوں on other social networks and social bookmarking sites. Just click on the "share" button on a video page یا an image یا a کوئز and آپ will see a larger popup menu with a host of choices (Facebook, MySpace and Twitter among others).
That's it for this latest update. Keep fanpopping and sending us feedback! And be sure to send سہارا out to Michael and Cliff for all their hard work on these new features.
