I figured I'd try to start a thread to see if I could break it. 😉 Here's a little Q&A that might be fun to introduce ourselves:
My name is _____.
I live in or around ___________.
I go by _________ on Facebook.
Other places/accounts you can find me on (Instagram, Twitter, Ravelry)...
Crafty/Make-y stuff I do...
Other things I like are.....
Why'd I join?
And now my answers:
My name is Corrie!
I live in or around Omaha, Nebraska. I'm originally an Air Force kid from all over, but landed in DC, then move here for my husband in 2005.
I go by Corrie Oberdin on Facebook.
Other places/accounts you can find me on (Instagram, Twitter, Ravelry)... Instagram: corriemakes365; Ravelry: Corrie
Crafty/Make-y stuff I do...Knitting, spinning, crocheting, drawing, collaging, and I just made my first soap and uh-oh, that might be a thing.
Other things I like are.....yoga, aerial (right now approximately 60% of my brain is taken up by this - I used to scroll through Instagram looking at yarn, now I scroll through instagram looking at aerialists and my husband asked me if I was planning to join the circus), reading, not being stuck in the snow, hiking, going on adventures with my kids.
Why'd I join? I joined because I got SO MUCH out of the Daily Making Jumpstart that this seemed like the obvious next step! I work on my own, usually from my dining room table, and my regular contact with adults who aren't my husband is limited to yoga/aerial class and my clients. So this is a great way to engage with other people.
A concern has been raised about the option to click to "react" to posts here on the forum. There are options to choose a heart, laughing emoji, sad emoji, etc., found in the lower-right of any post. Currently, a tally of a member's reactions is viewable on their profile page, and the number of reactions a member has received appears below their username when they make posts.
On one hand, having these simple reactions available offers an avenue to respond in a tiny way when you otherwise don't want to write a text reply to what someone has shared.
On the other hand, the presence of "hearts" and the like can seem like a popularity contest, which is something we absolutely do not want as a part of our community. And their presence may make it seem to some users like they have to respond to posts in some way or another, or they may make it feel like a click is a meaningful response when really, chiming in with a few words would say so much more.
Please take this poll (responses are anonymous) by May 23rd. I put in the third option without knowing for sure yet if it's possible, so note that if it's not possible, votes for the third option will shift to the "ditch the reactions" column.
Please do discuss here by replying!
I've just updated the Patreon plugin again, so hopefully this will clear up some of the bugs you've been experiencing.
@Sandi Wiseheart and @Nectaryne, I'm not sure the update is anything to do with the issue we discussed about having to reconnect over and over, but maybe it fixes the problem. Please let me know if the problem is still occurring (please clear your browser cache), or if it's cleared up.
Apparently, Patreon made some changes on their end that affected the plugin and drove this new update. Fingers crossed the connection is more robust now!
