This is a new feature showing the full history of past edits to this Blog Post. All members will now be able to Edit and refine their past and future Blog Posts with NO time limit.
Member Profiles have now been upgraded to reflect detailed statistics. Soon hyperlinks will be made available within each detail to drill further into each statistic.
Within Blog Details, you can now see the number of positive opinions received - Thanks, Great, Useful & Funny - against Blog Posts by that member. This figure is the actual number of opinions. For example, if the same blog received 2 Great & 3 Thanks, the numbers for "Great" and "Thanks" will go up by 2 and 3, respectively.
The "Popular Blog Posts" figure reflects the number of Posts that received a Gold Star.
Similarly, within ΣChain details, you can now see the total number of Green Flags & Red Flags received against Chains created by that

member.
The "Popular ΣChains" figure shows the number of ΣChains that received greater than 4 Green Flags (net).
The "Ratings Credit" is a new concept being introduced for Blogs and ΣChains. Here's the explanation.
When we post Blogs or create ΣChains, we are usually interested in how members rate our posts / ΣChains. We may provide an answer to a query or create a Chain after some research, and would like some feedback; we are disappointed if no one bothers to provide an opinion or rate the ΣChain. Also sometimes, we ourselves may not be bothered or interested enough to rate other people's posts / ΣChains.
Hereafter, we are giving credit for ratings/opinions given to other members as well. It does not matter what opinion/rating you give. If you provide an opinion/flag/rating, your "Ratings Credit" goes up by 1. When your receive a positive opinion (Great/Thanks/Useful/Funny) or a Green flag, your Ratings credit goes down by 1.
If a member's Ratings Credit is negative, it means that whereas other bloggers are rating/providing opinions to this member's contributions, this member himself/herself is not interested enough to rate others. When the ratings credit goes below 0, then others will no longer be able to provide positive opinions/flags to this member's contributions, till this member actively rates others to bring his/her credit above 0. A highly positive "Ratings Credit" means that this member is actively rating others' Chains/Blogs, but is unfortunately not receiving any feedback from others. Please note that the Ratings Credit goes up no matter what rating you provide. It is just a measure of your rating activity.
The "Ratings Credit" feature is intended to restore a balance and fairness to the level of participation of all members.
Regarding PNRs, there is now a breakdown of predictions - Current, Recent, Old, Overall.
Current = Last 30 days.
Recent = 30 - 60 days.
Old > 60 days.
Overall = weighted average of all three - more weight given to current predictions.
As mentioned previously, soon hyperlinks will be introduced to all statistic numbers to allow you to click and drill down further. For instance, when you click on the number for "Popular Blog Posts", a page will open up listing the Blog Posts that received a Gold Star.
Thanks.

A button to send instant PVT MSG on MEMBER LINK would be useful.
Either I should remember the THEN SCREEN NAME or the MEMBER ID to send a PVT MESSAGE. Instead, if a button(feature) is made avbl on the PROFILE LINK, its easy to send.
This is HIGHLY USEFUL for those who want to send a PVT MSG to YOU(Moderator) regarding the permission to create chains.
many are not aware of PVT MESSAGES and how to use it.
Thanks.
