Good morning, Gaia! This is Cindy Donovinh with a brief update on the latest Gaia news:
Bored? Take a Halloween Survey
- I'm sure we don't need to remind you that Halloween is coming up next month, since all of our lives pretty much revolve around it. But, yeah, Halloween is next month. In preparation, we've set up a little survey to get some opinions on what you love and hate about the holiday.
If you've got a minute, we'd love it if you threw us some answers. If you don't have a minute, please return to your important activities and forget you ever saw this announcement (which will self-destruct in ten seconds).
My Gaia Updates!
- We're still knee-deep in feedback for the new My Gaia page, and we've spent the last week doing some tweaks and updates to make it more useful. A lot of people wanted to see the friend section come back, so we're bringing it back better than ever. Here's what's new:
- Your online friends now show up at the top, so you don't have to scour your whole list for someone to hang out with.
If your friends are in the forums or a Flash hangout, you can now teleport to wherever they are.
You'll now see up to 10 thumbnail images in the friends section. Previously, you could only see 9. Yes, we know that this tweak doesn't quite rise to the level of "holy crap, that's incredible," but we thought we'd mention it anyway.
We've also looked through your suggestions for new feeds and added the top-requested ones:
- Your feeds will now show you when items are sold or bid on.
We'll send out weekly marketplace value updates for items on your wishlist.
We're also still hard at work at adding some new privacy settings which let you control what information your friends see about you, and which feeds you receive. We're always looking for more suggestions to make the My Gaia page as useful as it can possibly be, so be sure to drop us a line if you have any good ideas.
That's all for now, ladies and gentlemen. Stay tuned for the Evolving Item Report!
