Two New Features-- Online Now and Content Preview

Hi guys,

Announcing two exciting new features--

Online Now:  On the right hand side, towards the bottom you will now see a list of your friends currently online (and not in invisible mode, which is available to EP Supporters).  Talk to them with private messages or chat! 

Preview: One of your #1 feature requests is now here! You can take a look at your content-- stories, blogs, and private messages, before you send it/save it. Just click the icon in the toolbar that looks like a page with a magnifying glass on it. It will bring up a new window with a (very basic, sorry!) preview of what your content will look like. 

Thanks for helping make EP a better place!

i like this site, bet please connect me to a good woman

I would like EP to start a fictional story n one paragraph and let the rest of us kick n our own one paragraph...till we have a story.

thank you

This is the best way for me to let out how i feel about life and everything around me.

thats a great storie<br />

I for one am rather new here but feel the need to speak up. I think the folks her at EP are trying hard to please and deserve kudos for that! I have read many great stories and hell some of them have even helped me in my quest for happiness in this crazy *** world just knowing somebody else had the same kind of problems or situation. Keep up the good work but I do agree with one thing if it aint broke dont fix it!

Wanna write my story... HOWWWW?

excited about this

FG, it is free to us, but it is a business. They do what they do to attract more usage and to generate revenue through a variety of means so that they can pay for all the servers and connections they have as well as the personnel and possibly make a profit. They have had one round of funding and as they continue to succeed, they will have more. I applaud everything they do, except this fix to the profile page, but realize that what they do is a service of love and business.

Thanks y'all. I appreciate all you do for us, especially since this is basically a free site for all of us to use.

And that reminds me if ep wants something to do how bout a way to track blog and picture comments <br />
<br />
how bout a way of alerting people to new story comments whiteboard coments and gestures as they move around the site not just on their profile page <br />
<br />
and a site tutorial for new or just confused users <br />
<br />
and whh oh why isn't most of this stuff already in place????????????????

i really can't keep up with EP! whew! :) you never fail to delight us!<br />
<br />
thanks a lot guys!

I wonder if we'll ever get a better way to track the stories that we've commented on. Right now I have to slog through all the stories I've commented on and try to remember how many comments each story had, and if it's different from what I remember I'll check that story to see if there have been any new comments. I shouldn't have to do that. I should have a way to bring up a list of threads that I've commented on that have had new comments made.

JoJo:<br />
<br />
I would like the layout more if I felt it did a better job of using the space that was established within the 800 pixel zone centered in the middle of each page.<br />
<br />
Probably my biggest beef about it is that the right most column is FAR wider than it needs to be, making the center column (where stuff is, and should take priority) a lot less wide than it could be.<br />
<br />
If it were me, I'd take at least 30% of the width of the right-most column and devote more of that space to the two columns (first and center) on the left, but that's just me, I guess...<br />
<br />
Other than that, I am glad the layout seems to be doing a better job with the middle column's space. <br />
<br />
Don't know what the EP techs are doing to control that, but my first guess would be a combination of some crazy CSS and PHP, if not ja<x>vascript and Ajax...<br />
<br />
:)

I think it's all great, even the new layout that everyone is screaming about. I like not having the white space!

well my problem with the thumbs up thumbs down is people who simply don't like the person or the comment can thumbs down it to where it is out of viwing range then it makes it more difficult to read it for readers comming after that and i'm not even sure their is an opption to view commets below that theshold if you want to plus authors can and do have this done to them on their own stories which is WRONG <br />
<br />
i think it was a story of yours i caught about minors and profile content <br />
<br />
OH and ep something i forgot you should be able to save a draft of a story as many times as you want until you are ready to post as some authors are profectionists some write short stories here even chapters of fiction <br />
<br />
others like myself tend to see a group they would like to write a story in create a title and a few lines and save it for later as not to have joined 20,580 groups and have a profle that is hard to get a sense of or view all of your freinds experiences so writing a story becomes just easier <br />
<br />
others may want to write on a topic but do not want that topic in their experiences as they don't want to become that experience

ok what exactly is the point of the who's online thing when we can already click the oneline now thing to see which circle members are online???<br />
<br />
what exactly do you need a preview feture for your stories blogs and messages for when they already come with spell check <br />
<br />
while i'm asking questions why is my circle activity clogged with so and so added such and such user to their circle or person X and person Y are now freinds (who really wanted or needed to know that????) <br />
<br />
and why does EP feel the need to mess with a page layout that was never borken ????<br />
<br />
It seems like ep needs a proiority to do list and so i'll give you one<br />
<br />
1. GET SOME SPELL CHECK FOR COMMENTS GROUP CREATION AND GROUP DESCRIPTION and i mean as fast as you can possibly make it happen <br />
<br />
2. either a. gather all the mood sugestions and add them or b. make it to where you can write in your own like the what are you doing section <br />
<br />
3. LOSE this thums up thums down rating system for commets the idea that you think people can police themselves in this matter is just silly if you don't reaalize by now that EP is just a giant electronic sandbox filled with kindergarteners then i can't help you <br />
<br />
4. figure out a way for people to rate the mature content in their profile rather like you rate movies or video games so they can still have minors in their circle and give all important advice needed for the younger generation without having to cencor themsels or not have minors in their circle at all

Great!! Thank you!!! :-)

Thx guys, your feedback means so much to us! :) Thrilled to see you're liking it. <br />
<br />
NinVA- we're working with you on email to see what's going on and how we can fix it.

Again, thanks for the new featu8res, but I just wrote a story condemning you new profile page layout, but there was no preview button or icon to hit.

These are both great features. Thanks for all the work you do to make EP better!

Thank you all for everything you do to make this a better place for us little folk.
