Additions and improvements for Paid Feature [Nov. 12th, 2009|02:11 pm]
Paid Members



We've made some additions and improvements to Notes!

The Notes feature has been added to two action-taking pages:
  • You can now add a Note directly on the Add a friend page - handy if you'd like to mark down where you met them or another name you know them by!
  • On the Ban and unban users page (under Account -> Privacy) you can now add a Note, including to a group of users all banned at the same time (so that next year you won't need to ask yourself "hey, why did I ban these guys?")

Other changes:
  • When you're viewing your existing Notes they're grayed out; click in a field to activate it to change the text (this page can be found from the header by using Profile -> Manage Notes)
  • Changes to editing:
    • When you're going to create a new Note but one already exists, you'll get a warning that you're editing an existing Note
    • You can now delete a note from the "Edit note" pop-up in the hover menu
    • You can now delete notes for multiple selected users on the Manage notes page
    • When you change Notes on "Ban|unban users" page, they can be edited and saved with "Save Changes" button

I didn't for a long time, but then I realized that I could add a note on a user who wasn't on my friends list (I know who all of the people on my friendslist are, so I didn't feel the need to make any notes).

For instance, I can see someone who had a great post somewhere and mark down "person who wrote about the dog and the sweet potatoes" - then, when I see them post in another community or make a comment, I know where I've seen them before.

You mean I don't have to use the console to ban users anymore? Awesome! I wonder how long it's been like that...

Just move your mouse cursor onto someone's userpic. There will be a small pop-up window with several options, one of which is `Ban user'.

Thanks but I don't see Notes field for users banned in communities (even paid ones)! I think in a comm it would be more useful than in personal journals. We have a few maintainters, and if one of them bans a user, the others may want to know why when they see the list.

Neat. Now I now a LOT more about notes - never saw the point of them before.

It's a little bit of niche feature, but could be very useful.

I have never had to ban anyone, or make secret notes on them.
I would much rather have a hit counter you could put on any page.

Love the additions to notes. It's one of my favorite new features we've gotten recently.

Yay~ I was just thinking it would be handy to have the notes feature on the ban page.

I'm a Permanent Member and a manager of the davis_square community, but I don't see a way to put Notes next to our banned users.

I ran into this issue myself. The community has to be paid to get notes, not the maintainer of it. Really sucks because I wanted to make use of it myself on a community I maintained.
