Just wanted to a quick update on a couple of things.
fatdoor’s messaging capabilities (such as sending emails, friend requests etc) were down this evening from 4:30 PM to 5:30 PM due to our mail server down time (note to myself: post a blog entry “before” we are down next time). But please note that, none of your friend requests or sign-ups are lost during this time, they were simply queued and processed as soon as we are back up at 5:30 PM.
Based on the feedback so far, the “shoutout” feature is one of the most loved features on fatdoor; for those who haven’t played with fatdoor, “shoutout” is a simple way of keeping in touch with your neighborhood online – think of it as your “news feed” for the neighborhood (you can actually subscribe to it via any feed reader too) that is generated by your neighbor activity.
We are getting a lot of feedback from our early Alpha users (both feature requests and bugs) and we are working on them quickly to roll out what you are asking for. So, please keep it coming!
As always, I can be reached at this blog or at my email: firstname.lastname@example.org
