News from CS about current ... not very good ... implementation of places
News from CS about current ... not very good ... implementation of places:
"We're currently aiming to launch an update to Place Pages in the later part of next week, the week of December 9th - 15th. I'd like to caveat this by saying that there may be unforeseen problems that pop up and delay this update, but we're currently aiming to hit late next week.
This is what we're working on currently and what we plan to launch late next week:
Adding Thread Titles to the Conversation section of the page.
We heard from many that they are not able to easily scan over conversations and pick up the topic of conversation. We're adding Thread Titles to address this issue.
Adding a Thread-view page for Place Page conversations.
Many members said that Conversations take up too much visual space, especially in terms of height. We're adding an additional way to view all conversations from a Place Page, and the new view will look very similar to how Groups display threads with a collapsed view of thread titles, author name, and last commenter/date.
Improving the naming of Cities/Areas on Place Pages
We're going to continuously correct and change the naming of Cities/Areas, and we thank our community members that are letting us know about these errors. Please continue to report these naming errors through this form.
We're removing areas that are not in the same country as the location of the Place Page. This was a bug with the Place Page area grouping, and we're correcting it.
Adding new Place Pages for cities that were incorrectly grouped with other cities. These new Place Pages will be blank, and the groups for those cities will remain in the Groups section of Couchsurfing.com. If you feel your city was incorrectly grouped with another city, please report this error via this form.
Bugs - since this is a new technology and new launch for us, we've found various bugs and issues that have cropped up. We're going to continue to address these bugs and make sure that the site is stable and consistently working for everyone"
