Announcement: Last Night's Updates

Hi! As many of you noticed there were some changes made to Answers last night. Sorry for the lack of notice -- I didn't think they would go "live" until today. Anyway, here is what's changed:

1) I've updated some of the copy on the site to emphasize the "school" theme less. As many of you have noted, it was sort of silly and confusing to new users. The awards still have school-themed names. I may make some more copy adjustments, but I don't plan to remove the actual awards.

2) The "To Do" list is now gone entirely. Previously I had left it on your profile.

3) The ability to answer anonymously is now harder to get (it's unlocked at a higher level). We'll also be keeping a closer eye on abuse of this feature. One side effect of this is that the Dean's List is now unlocked at a different level as well.

If you have any questions about the changes, feel free to ask!

    Let the influx of "new" accts begin.

  • keeping a closer eye on abuse of this feature.

    and a close eye on abuse of the report button- not the willy nilly deletions of the past?

  • > How is it harder to get?

    It's unlocked at a higher level, so there's less of a change of someone creating a fake account just to use it.

  • Thanks for getting rid of the "to do" list entirely. I guess we will see if a closer eye is actually kept or if you are just blowing sunshine up our asses.
