Mug Update 10/15/16

  • We’ve been here for nearly three weeks now and most of you have settled in. (YAY!) Here’s a quick update on where things are at and what you need to know now...

     

    If you take nothing else away from this, know these three things:

    #1 The FAQ section is your friend. Look for it in the main menu under “Home” It says “FAQ + Help.” Just about everything you could possibly want to know about how to use the site is already listed there.

    #2 We are not reinstating the old photos. The photo data got really corrupted. When I open the photo section again, it will be empty and we will not support posting of private photos. If you want to share with a specific audience, please do so via on-site messaging. If you need to get any of your old photos, you can access them at answergang.ning.com until 10/31/16. After this, everything there will be deleted.

    #3 I manually added everyone in adultMug to the adult network. A whole lot of people had trouble getting access to their old groups, so I spent a few hours today adding people by hand. If you don’t want to see the adult content and want to leave the adult network, send me an email and I will undo it. You can also customize your activity feed to weed out the things you aren’t interested in. If you need help with this, please see the FAQ.

    And here’s some more info for you die-hards…

    Glitch fixes are still in the works. I’m not real happy with the level of progress we’re seeing on the fixes and we have a list of probably 50 things that still need to be done. I’m working on something to make it happen faster and I’ll let you all know when that something comes to fruition… either that or stuff will just start getting rapidly fixed.

    The feedback tab is your friend, right up there with the FAQ. For mobile users, you’ll find it under “Home” on the main menu. The rest of you have it attached to the left side of your screen. This opens a dialogue between us, and you can use it to report issues, make suggestions, or send me funny memes to brighten my day. ;)

    Groups are mostly done and you can create new groups again. If you’ve played around with the individual group settings with the “create” button, you know there’s about 100 of them. These are wrong on a lot of groups of the features we recently added, such as group polls and videos, which means we have to go through all 300+ groups again by hand and adjust them. Goat Jumper has agreed to help with this task (Thanks, GJ!), and it should be done by about the middle of next week. If you can't post in a specific group, it's because of these settings. Give me a holler and I will bump whatever group you're having trouble with to the top of the list. I have a dev working on the group albums- that’s a separate issue. They don’t work at this time. Also, if you were an active admin previously and you have not been made a group admin here, send me an email.

    The site-wide search feature is temporarily down, but individual features still have search bars that work in them. Our group privacy settings still showed content from private groups in the searches, which left the mod group info out in the open. I personally didn’t care, which is why I left it up. Those who saw into it by using the search thought it was pretty cool, reading how the mods discuss topics and follow up on site issues, so it was more or less a “meh” thing to me. However, it came to my attention that some people intended to dig through it to start issues between members and cause a stir, so to avoid conflict between members, I just yanked the global search until the dev can get to it.

    Thank you for being here. We jumped ship without this site being totally ready because the other one was totally blocking people out and could not be repaired by me, so we’re having more bumps than expected here. However, you guys have been, by and large, wonderful. I really could not ask to be surrounded by a better group of people.

    With all the work you're doing around here, have you considered changing your name from "Just Asking" to "Just Tasking?" 
    We muggers at large can not thank you enough for all you do for us. 
    I know it gets me hot just thinking about it.  Of course everything gets me hot.  LOL!  Hang in there JA.

    You're awesome...
    ...just so I understand. When the photos are up and running, You say no private photos.
    Does that mean if i take a picture of a beautiful sunset, I can't post it?

    Not at all. You can post anything that complies with the TOS, but you have to share it with everyone. People sometimes lock photos down to "friends only" and post pics of themselves and their kids and stuff. Going forward, there are no photo privacy settings. If it goes up, we all see it.

    I get that all the time too.  I can't ever like anything on blogs and polls.  I can in the main forum though.

    Ah.  OK.  I see that now.  I have another question though.  It doesn't ever let me edit my responses.  I always get a message saying error blah blah blah.  Would you happen to know whats up with that?

    I have no problem editing, so I am not sure.  Try refreshing the page and then try editing again.

    Sometimes I am unable to edit my responses. But, I don't have the patience right now to mess with it. 
    I'm sure there is a way. I'll find it. LOL

    Your email list only shows your friends, but you can visit my profile page and email me from there. The feedback tab also sends messages to me and there's a contact admin button on the bottom of every page.
