There hasn’t been any good way to introduce new features to the site, until now. While other sites use their sidebars as a means of promotion, we wanted something different. Enter: Dashboard.
So far there’s been the “Welcome” tab, which was kind of unnecessary when you’ve been using QUOTE.fm for a while. So, from now on, the Dashboard will take its place. It’ll contain shortcuts to several features (e.g. the bookmarklet and a function to find friends) as well as various new things such as “Staff Favorites”.
The latter will be a useful way for new users to create themselves a timeline full of high quality reading recommendations.
The Dashboard’s content will depend on your status. If you’re up for curatorship votes, it’ll show the current top 5 of the respective topic. If you’ve got any invites left, it’ll show you how many, and so on.
Speaking of invites: Many of your invites haven’t been given out so far. Don’t hesitate to go ahead and invite people you think would recommend texts worth reading.
