Improvements to the interface and settings | 首頁面板和設定的修改|首页面板和设定的修改

We've been working hard here at Alive Not Dead and listening to your comments as well as gather our own ideas about how to make the site easier to navigate and use on a daiily basis. I wanted to introduce some recent changes that we've made.

First, we've simplified the "User Panel" which you'll see on the righthand side of the page when you're logged in. The new panel is a slightly simplified design that removes some of the duplicate buttons and places a greater emphasis on two very important buttons at the top:

"My feeds" will take you to a page where you can read all of the recent blog entries from all of your friends and anyone who you're a fan of. This is really convenient to read during your lunch break -- a single page that has everything that you need to get updated on what your favorite friends and artists are doing. If you're like me, you've bookmarked this page and return to it several times a day (but I'm just obsessive like that).

We also have the "Inbox"which manages all of the private messages between you and your friends.

Next, we have the "Comments"menus -- comments to your own entries, to other people's entries that you've subscribed to (when YOU commented to their entry), and to any forum threads that you're subscribed to. Clicking on the "+" sign will open up a really useful menu where you can see when comments have been made to these items. This way, you can stay "involved" an the ongoing discussion.

Finally, we have the "Statistics" bar. This was previously at the top of the page, but we've moved it lower. Here you can get the latest stats on how popular your profile and guestbook are.

Some of you might have been wondering where the heck we put the "Settings" link. Well, we took a long look at how people were accessing the settings page and found that they were using it from their own profile pages. As a consequence, we've decided to unify the menus between your profile and your settings page into one. Now, you can access all of your profile pages AND your settings pages from a single menu.

If you're having trouble viewing the menu bar of your page, click Ctrl-F5 to refresh the page.

When you're looking at your own profile, a Settings button will appear on the very left of the menu. Additionally, hovering over the appropriate menu buttons will open up submenus allowing you to access any of the settings pages that you might need.

Hopefully these minor design changes make your stay on Alive Not Dead more enjoyable. Give us your feedback by commenting below and let us know what you think of the changes.

I read in the Shout Box this morning that everyone gets feeds from this blog now, but as much as I love Admin Bear, is there a way to change it so those of us who are already subscribed to it don't get duplicate entries?

It's really cool but I was already used to the original version LOL No worries though :) I still understand the whole system. If it helps other members but hasn't confused me then it's all good :)

I already told cass this, but i'll post it for others. If you are getting mroe than one feed you can unsubscribe to admin bear, since i think he's a defaul subscription for everyone now. You will still get his feeds (I think). Dang it .. where is Stephen when I need him?

You are not only the cutest Admin I've run into in a long time but the changes implemented are quite helpful. Phil S. runs a close second as a cute administrator & he's very sweet, just like you. He doesn't wear a red bow around his neck tho & he's a wicked golfer. No offense but you look more like the indoor type. :)

Okay... I fixed it so that people who are friends or fans of admin bear shouldn't be getting duplicate entries any more.
