Suggestions For The Groups/experiences Pages?

Hi all, we've been scrutinizing the experiences pages (not the stories, but the groups pages, the pages with "/groups/" in the URL), and we'd love your input on what's missing, what could be made better, what features would be outstanding, etc. For starters, we've started to clean up extra or broken links, fix some of the profanity filtering issues (it would often star things out that shouldn't have been), etc.

Beyond bug fixes or tweaks, honestly we'd REALLY love input on your biggest ideas that would make the pages more useful to you and others. 

The experiences pages are one of the very first built out here at EP, nearly 4 years ago, so they could use some love! Thoughts are welcome-- we can't get to everything of course, as we've got a long list of things we want to tackle ourselves, but please let us know if you have suggestions, improvements or fixes. As many of you know, it's very common for you to point something out to us today, and have it resolved by tomorrow! 

Much love,
Team EP

Cellular navigation instructions. Advice on how to download the full site on your iPhone. I am unable to block, unfriend, or look at my whiteboard I just realized I had today by logging in from an email you sent me. My advice is to keep experiences private until someone joins that group. On that level. Have a different page for different groups. I personally don't wanna post depressing stuff all the time to those that are not. Creating drama (low key)

I second this!

I cancelled my email notifications because I was getting way to many but since then I cannot read any replies or see likes to my answers or statements left for other members. I also can no longer send personal replies to answers left for me. Should I restart the email notification? Or is this a iPad thing

i cannot send emails either.....did u figure out what the problem was ?


Don't place an experience on someone's page that they haven't chosen. Also allow users to delete an "experience" from their page.

I did not know someone could do that.........I wonder if that is why I have found experiences I did not remember checking. I thought it was a result of careless fingers. If someone does that can we figure out who did it ?

well if it's on your page in your homestream it's likely there because someone in your circle joined a group

also if you write a story for a group even as a counter argument it automatically adds you to that group (GRRRRR) they really do need to stop this because not everyone wants to join a group just because the write a story about it

outside the counter argument the story you write for group X may only be as small part of you and you don't want it added to your experience list because get thousands of friends and thousands of experiences and your profile starts to malfunction

Yeah ! More Females !

It would be nice if my stories I have shared else where on ep, showed up in my stories too. I know I have shared more than two stories here. :) Or at least a link to the story between my profile and where it was shared so people can share back and give their input or share their stories directly. :)

i like this page

What happened to my blogs? Why can't I find them?

Do you still have the "surveys" section? I have been off of EP for about a year, & just came back today. I keep looking but cannot find the surveys section. That was one of my most favorite parts. If you still have it, I'd like to know how to get to it. And if you don't still have it, I'd like to see it be brought back.

Why was your last story 3 years ago? Where have you all gone?

Please tell me how to report an avatar that has nudity? Where and who do I tell? I did report this once but have found another. May be the same dude. I took down the username.

I may already have said this, but if EP members want to find if any others are really close to them, who might like to meet, a search facility would be wonderful.
May be you already have it.
I will certainly want to pay something to EP, when I have managed to cancel all the repeating payments I don't want.
I think that this is a wonderful site. Thank you.

U don't have to work that hard, just give us back the chat.. we're not that rich to pay u 5$ per month,,

i am new to this site and using more and more this has saved me you don't know how ? thank you god bless david1957

One of my stories missing from the list .

Any way you can get rid of Flo?

The new email format looks nice but you left out a reply function to old emails. Now, I have to type in a new address for every new reply. Can you put in a reply function ?

If you do, you will be my hero !!

i like my old name better....

yes please can you help me........

yes and no use a dfference name........

pullupgirl103 i need help to get back on Ep''''

how a bought your first love ore the lost of your first love

What's the opposite of common?

Very hard to categorize thoughts.....will have to give it some thought. Haha

I have plenty of issues, lots of experience, too many questions and I can put a positive spin on anything!

please add a way to consolidate groups, suggestion groups or something or even a way to vote and list the related groups.. if enough agree we can move all to the 'parent' group.

There are groups that do not have logo's It would be great if you would allow people to give them one. They are locked down with the generic EP symbol and would benefit from a member of that group assigning a new picture to it.

This. ^

thank you

I wrote about this a long time ago, but it hasn't been fixed yet, and it bugs me.
When you've read a story, you scroll down to the comments. Each comment has a thumbnail and the handle of the author. If you mouse over the author, a pop out appears with the age range and gender of the author. This works all the way down UNTIL you reach the "view more" at the bottom. When you click on that "view more" label, more comments appear, HOWEVER, none of the authors' handles pop out with their age and gender any further down. This is important to me in many comments to know quickly the age and gender of the commentors.

Related: when looking a the listing of experiences under any topic, each short synopsis also carries the same thumbnails and and author's handles. It would be as useful to implement that same pop out of author info as just mentioned above in the stories, please!

Seems that you recently change how this works, but not for the better. Now I don't get the age and gender at all. Did you misunderstand what I asked for?

nicely said, 'drummerboy4u'. I have to comment on 'imjonbean'. what you like on facebook reveals one's IQ and the colbert report has higher IQ people. lol It's not one'Q you should be concerned with ,,it's their EQ (emotional quotient) that determines compatibility. If you do not wnat aggressive correspondence with internet users then think of their emotional quotient. there are some people that are academically intelligent and still aggressive. This is why it takes a long time to get to know someone. We must see how one reacts in certain situations to determine their intelligence via their emotional response.

How do I find all the stories for someone whose stories I find interesting? Some have blocked their profile so it's not possible to just vlivk on their member name.
