New stuff

April 7th, 2009 3 comments

Al has been programming away as fast as his little fingers can type. Some of the additions that I’ve been whining about for some time are ready to go. We’ve uploaded a new version of our site that includes some new features.

Sometimes when looking at a list I want to comment on a list item but I can’t say Me2! because I haven’t done the thing myself – maybe I just like what the Lifelister to say or I admire their achievement. I’ve often wanted to to congratulate someone when they achieve something on a Todolist or a Bucketlist. Now we can honour list items by awarding Medals. You can give a Medal in the same way you give a Me2!

Some users create really inspirational lists. Now we can award a whole list a Gold Star if we like it. When looking at a list, you will notice the option to award a Gold Star over to the right of a list title, near where you can choose to ‘Favourite’ a list.

You’ll notice there’s lots of new functionality on your home page too. You can now delete Me2!s, Medals, or Gold Stars that you have given. And you now have a record of the awards you have given.

Enjoy the new features and please do let us know if you notice any problems.

The History of the World in Lists

April 6th, 2009 No comments

I’ve always been fascinated by lists. Some lists I’m so much in awe of I don’t even know how to mention them without seeming clumsy and crass. The idea that Schindler’s List (found in Sydney reports the BBC today) even exists, tells us so much about our world. I even feel awkward just typing it’s name, such is the powerful emotion it evokes.
