New and Updated Site Features

February 11, 2008 11:24 am

Tags: features, new, tip of the week, welcome message


To better serve our members, new and old, we’re adding some new features to the site that we hope will make visiting Renderosity a more pleasurable experience. This includes more informative welcome messages for new members and a ‘Tip of the Week’ that will be integrated into both the site and weekly Newsletter. The Welcome message sent to new members will be more informative on what they need to know to begin using all of the different areas of the site. It will also include helpful links to the FAQ so that they will have a handy reference for a variety of common questions and topics. The Tip of the Week will become a recurring part of our weekly newsletter as well as a new fixture on the site's sidebar. These hints will range from functions that most users are familiar with, to some helpful features that you may not have known existed previously. We believe this will help maximize your use of the site, and make this a better community for everyone.

Brilliant! I just blundered about at first, still lots of things are a mystery!

Yepper, sounds like a great idea.

The 'tips of the Week is a good idea. I wish someone would start a similar idea in the individual forums for Bryce or Vue or Poser, etc. I am sure there are plenty of 'tricks' to getting the most out of every software package you represent but aren't readily apparent to a lot of users and a few tips from your more masterful users would be very much appreciated. Any way, thanks for the site improvement!

rstar, We are looking at doing a TIP OF THE WEEK for the individual SubCommunities. We are just getting the site wide one up and going then we will start seeing about the ones that will be SubCommunity related for each software topic. Thanks Stac

Updates and new features make a website grow better and stronger and help to encourage more and more members to join. I look forward to the welcome changes especially the tip of the week.

i'm not sure if anyone is interested in this or even if it matters, but the Tip Of The Week seems to update ahead of schedule. right now it is showing the tip for Wed. 13. it's currently 8:50 PM RO server time on the 12th.

Hey Giana, Yes we are aware of this bug and the programmers are looking into it. I noticed it last night as well:) Thanks for letting us know

Great idea. And to add one 😄 Can the bookmark thread from Acadia and the homepage of DrGeep become a sticky or something?? They contain great tips and tutorials, realy some must have reading.

Renderosity is the finest art community there is. I always look forward to the new plans you guys have! Thanks for all your hard work!

As a newcomer, I take the site "as is", but can tell you, after a short survey of several forums that this one is from far the best for the beginner I am to be secoursed by well behaved people. The main quality of a forum will ever be this of its audience. all the same, Thanks for your efforts for welcoming the newbees, thanks simply to exist. New and allready faithfull, LocusSolus.

A site feature I would like to see is something other than ads for poser stuff on the home page of renderosity. There are more than just poser merchants selling here, and I hardly ever see any of their stuff advertised on the homepage.

I noticed the Tip of the Week a few days ago and was thinking "did that use to be there?" Nice. I like it. And I support the idea of targeted tips in the subcommunities. THAT would be great!

Wonderful! Thanks so much for keeping Renderosity on the cutting edge :) It is one of the BEST sites on the web.

Renderosity has been doing such a great job overall, I cannot imagine it getting better. The great thing is, it is getting better all the time!

I love this site already. I often wonder what more can you do to it. But I guess you have to keep yourself busy:)!!!!!

Anything that aides people in their productivity and adds to the design of the site I'm totally in favor of.... BRAVO!!!! keep'm coming....Herb

Is there a way to turn off the tip of the week or at least hide it after it's been read? I find it oddly annoying.

StaceyG ( posted at 12:00AM Tue, 19 February 2008

No there is no way to "turn it off" or hide it. Thanks Stacey

I like SAMS3D's idea (tip of the week for each forum) I hate to be a whiner...(the proverbial BUT) Any chance of integrating an idea I sent to the support folks where you could make a button to resolve your wish list against your purchased content? I have stuff on my wish list that I have already purchased and being a dufas I sometimes try and buy the same thing twice. It sure would be nice to hit a button and have the data base take all the stuff off my wish list that I already bought. ;-)
