Testing Newsletter Announcements
Thank you so much for your efforts to help us test the site. I want to encourage folks to check out several items while you are evaluating the site.
First, make sure that you add your ASIN/ISBNs into the field for it in your profiles (Click on My account). This will include your book in the Members Amazon store.
Second, go to the polls and vote...and/or comment about those topics.
Third, start adding material into your "blog"...which on our site is the source of our communications with each other and you will see that it works a lot like Facebook.
Fourth, please check out the forums and add your two cents worth there. This will help us see how it is working with your various "permissions" ... and it will also give us an idea of what you think and want from the site.
Fifth, add something for Member News. This particular item will require someone to "approve"...and if you put material out there, we can use it to teach our "approvers" how to manage this function...
Sixth, experiment with images and video...and give us your feedback there.
Seventh, go to the Membership roster and select another member and email that person through the Contact button in their profile. Say hello and that you are testing out the site...you will note that you can send them emails without them knowing your email address and without you knowing theirs. Since everyone is testing, it might be nice to pick someone you don't know and make a new friends.
Eight, I need some folks to volunteer to be "editors." Editors have the ability to go into someone else's documents and make corrections. However, only Senior Editors can approve the document and make it appear on the site for all to see. We need to experiment with these functions and make sure that we have all the settings correctly defined. You can volunteer for this function JUST for the testing period...or you can check documents whenever you come online. We most especially need editors for Dispatches. Respond to me by going to my name in the roster and clicking Contact. :)
