Community User Profiles - Is there a link to display the profiles (web page, blogs, etc) for the members in the community? Or maybe just the list of members....the last 4 members to join are shown on the main page but I didn't see a link to the full community.

Thanks, Al / NN4ZZ

Good question. Since we are using the GetSatisfaction community software and there are a lot of companies also using it, once you have a GetSatisfaction login, you can join any of the public communities they host. So, there isn't a default community specific user listing feature. I'll see if there is a way to provide that capability.

A list of members of the Community?.


This is a question regarding the Community (Get Satisfaction). Is there a way to see who all the members are? I notice that the side panel shows a small selection of who has been active, but I do not see a place to view a complete list. Would be nice to see if any friends and colleagues have joined. Or is this already available and I am missing it?

Here is the answer. Not easily.

When you join a GetSatisfaction community, you actually have login access to any community hosted by GetSatisfaction, so in essence you are members of a greater collection of communities, not just FlexRadio.

We can look at users associated with our community, but that is only available at the administrative level of the community.

Tim & Richard,
I checked with the GetSatisfaction community about the idea and here is the reply. Others have asked about it too.

Hi Al,
Right now we don't display a list of members in a specific community.

This is a very valid idea, and we'd like to make it a richer experience (for example sort by activity count, or being able to follow other users...)

But we haven't prioritized this in the short term, so I'm marking it as not planned, hoping to change it to under consideration at some point in the future.

Thanks for sharing!

The other options available today are to make everyone a "champion" then everyone can see everyone in the "people list." See snapshot below. (I'm not suggesting this is the solution, just saying....)

Or the admins can create a report or use the API to get a list and post it periodically. (probably too much trouble unless you automate it)

Regards, Al / NN4ZZ

Yes, this is the issue I was speaking of in my reply.

We have had private user requests not to display their membership status of the community publicly and we plan to honor that request as the default. Until there is a non-manual way of showing and filtering the community user list, we do not plan to add this additional administrative task to the community management tasks.

PHOTOGRAPH UPLOAD TIP: I uploaded a photograph to my community services profile and I had suddenly gained a LOT of weight. I uploaded a 750 v by 450 w pixel photograph. Community Services used the height and stretched my width from 450 to 750 wide, hence the sudden weight gain. I used Photoshop to crop the photograph to a square 450 w by 450 h pixel photo and uploaded again. Now it looks like me. For those who want sudden diet results if you post a photograph wherein the vertical pixel count is a little less than the horizontal pixel count you will be stretched vertically and therefore look a little thinner. Taken to the extreme you will look more like a string of spaghetti. It appears that regardless of the pixel size of the photograph that we upload Community Services will dumb the photo down to 100 x 100 pixels, or less.
