Activity Upgrade Launched!
This week saw the launch of a new Activity system on AuthorAdvance. Activity records the public actions that users take on the site (such as updating a listing or posting a blog) and collects them into one easy-to-read stream. That stream then appears on your user profile to let people know what you’ve been up to, and on your Dashboard to help you keep up with your friends.
The Activity system only records public actions. Your private information still stays private, and you’ll never see your Submissions and Titles show up in your Activity stream. And if you do something public that you’d rather keep private, you can easily delete any Activity record directly from your profile page.
This new system marks a big improvement from the previous Activity system, both in terms of stability and ease of use. However, in order to make it a reality, older Activity entries had to be sacrificed, so anything you did prior to the switch will not appear in the stream.
To see the new Activity system in action, log in and visit your Dashboard, or visit any user’s profile.
