What would you all like to see in your groups? As in options/features?

I have opened a new Buzzen Development room if anyone would like to join to discuss groups and other buzzen related development.

I am progressing slowly but surely. Beta testers will be added soon.

One of the options will be creating pages for your groups.. Here is an example of the type of page you could create.

Can group members create their own pages/spaces for things they may want to upload - photos, music etc?
Title: Re: Buzzen Groups ( Looking for testers )
Post by: err0r on December 06, 2016, 02:51:56 PM
Currently the plans are making groups like a mini buzzen. Groups will have the ability to create pages/photo albums/and blogs/discussions

Post by: err0r on December 08, 2016, 01:21:00 PM
cĥęŕĩşĥ♕ღT & خẾsèf approved for beta testing

Main Link to groups http://www.buzzen.com/groups.html

Create a Group http://www.buzzen.com/groupcreate.html

Manage Your Group http://www.buzzen.com/groupmanager.html

Currently testing the Creation Process and the Page add/edit feature.

Let me know if you have any ideas about the creation process. Anything you think should be added that isn't or any bugs you find.

Once you have created your group you can edit settings @ http://www.buzzen.com/groupmanager.html

You can create and edit pages by clicking the pages tab once there.

Main page will have more information as we add sections.

Looking for feedback on the process/bugs/ideas/etc.

Post by: Eyecu on December 08, 2016, 11:37:57 PM
Creation process is very straight forward and easy to understand. No issues with creating. Dont think there really needs to be anything else for the creation part.
Title: Re: Buzzen Groups ( Looking for testers )
Post by: خẾsèf on December 09, 2016, 06:34:20 AM
I agree with Eyecu, easy to use. Maybe add 'Miscellaneous' to the Group description list? Plus 'Entertainmnet' needs to be 'Entertainment'.
Title: Re: Buzzen Groups ( Looking for testers )
Post by: err0r on December 09, 2016, 01:12:15 PM
Thank you for your feedback. Miscellaneous has been added and the spelling error corrected.
Title: Re: Buzzen Groups ( Looking for testers )
Post by: خẾsèf on December 10, 2016, 06:26:57 AM
Is "Pending requests from users" still being worked on?
Title: Re: Buzzen Groups ( Looking for testers )
Post by: err0r on December 10, 2016, 03:01:10 PM
Join/Accept/Decline manager should work now.

Everything is still a work in progress.. I'm sort of making this up as i go along, and at times I have to rewrite whole sections when other ideas occur.

What I hope to accomplish with beta tester program is to not only test what I make but get feedback on what should be added and how it should work.

Planned features include:

latest happenings ie: <nick> has joined group. // new page has been created. // new album etc etc
Albums
Blogs/Discussions

I barely remember anything about msn groups so any feedback on how you want groups to function and what sections we should include would be very helpful. Give me your idea of Buzzen Groups and i'll do my best to make them work.

Title: Re: Buzzen Groups ( Looking for testers )
Post by: err0r on December 11, 2016, 01:14:55 AM
Added Albums

at the moment only the group owner can add albums pics. later on you will be able to select members to a group that can add them too.

Everything is still in development so any section can change. Cosmetics will be improved over time.

Sample

Error... is there anyway we can have impliment a "know whose been viewing us on buzzen"...it would be nice to see who helps us increase our views daily... just asking...thank you....kai
Title: Re: Buzzen Groups ( Looking for testers )
Post by: err0r on December 21, 2016, 05:45:17 PM
We have discussed that option in the past and it was shot down. There seems to be a lot of people that do not wish other people to know which profiles they look at. Many thought it would only cause problems. We do have a like system on profiles now. People can like your profile and only the profile owner can see who the likes were from.

Thank you for the feedback however. I really enjoy hearing from the chatters on options they would like. Maybe we can find some middle ground in the future to implement your idea.

As such I can test, or pray tell obviate future discussion with a view to closure of same.

Everything working fine for me. What about something for uploading music files, mp3 etc? Is it possible to have music in the background ?
Title: Re: Buzzen Groups ( Looking for testers )
Post by: err0r on December 27, 2016, 12:54:03 PM
Adding music would be problematic due to copyright issues.

The 'last activity' timestamp can take a while to update, sometimes days.

Post by: err0r on January 04, 2017, 11:53:00 AM
it's based on activities such as adding new picture/comment/new page/new discussion posts

There was an addition to the Blues Music discussion board at 11:08:10 am my time today. When I look at http://www.buzzen.com/groups.html right now it states "Last Activity: 2 days ago 9:53:36 pm".

The fix should take effect on your groups next activity

Post by: خẾsèf on January 05, 2017, 04:47:33 AM
There is now no 'Last Activity' info.

Apologies for interacting with this topic, but I wish to start a new forum topic on the back of a very successful "Poets Corner", which by demand I am endeavoring to facilitate. Why am i unable to facilitate such a thing. I direct this query to Error for advice.

Response respectfully appreciated.

Hi

Many thanks for the creating the group option - it was needed and is appreciated.

I was wondering if there will be an option added in the settings to enable turning off the 'latest album pictures' and the 'lastest picture comments' from the view on the main page?

Kind regards
