You can now see your sent direct questions in your profile!

Hey Springers!

It came to our attention that some of you are worried that your direct questions appear publicly in your Questions. Don’t worry, it is actually a new feature that lets you see your sent messages- whether public or not- but others Spring.me users won’t see it in your profile! Keep in mind that all direct questions become public once the recipient responds to it- it then appears on the Answers section on their profile. If you don’t want your direct questions to be seen by anyone else than the recipients, try our new Group Private Messaging!

You asked and we listened: New blocking option on Spring.me!

Hey Springers!

You may have noticed a new BLOCK button on Spring.me when you click on a member’s profile. You now have the possibility to block a user directly on their profile. Blocking another member means that they won’t be able to ask you direct questions, include you in a group conversation, answer your questions or comment on your responses. They will, however, be able to send you anonymous messages. If you don’t want them to have that possibility, go to your settings and make sure the anonymous questions option is ticked off.

To use this new feature, it’s quite simple:

– Go on the user’s profile

– On their profile card you will see a “BLOCK’ button, click on it
Screen Shot 2014-09-04 at 13.52.44
– If you wish to unblock the person, just click on the red “UNBLOCK” button

The Official Q&A Session with Spring.me is coming!

Hello Springers!

We are very pleased to announce our very first official Q&A session run by the Spring.me team!

Ban_QA (2)

On September 9th at 8:00pm (PDT), you can post your questions to the profile of Spring.me’s Social Media and Community Manager, the one and only @FlorenceSarah

As soon as the clock hits 8:00pm, you can send a question to Florence’s profile and we will give our best and brightest answer each time. We are flexible with the time length of this Q&A so do not worry if you are not there first in at 8:00pm, as well will announce at least 15 minutes beforehand when we plan to close the session.

Now of course, there are a few rules to follow, just so we can ensure that all users are able to enjoy themselves and feel encouraged to ask what is on their mind. If these rules are not followed, it will be highly likely that your question will not be answered and/or you will face discipline.

Spam, offensive content or abuse will not be tolerated.

Remember, you will be speaking to the Spring.me team, the people working day and night for you to have the best possible experience on our site. If you misbehave and do not act accordingly we will not hesitate to take appropriate action regarding your account status.

We are not technical support, but we will welcome feedback and suggestions.

If you are experiencing serious technical issues with the site or there is an issue with another member, please follow this link to make your statement – https://springme.zendesk.com/hc/en-us. We will not be acting as technical support and are conducting this Q&A to get to know our fellow Springers better, learn more about what is and isn’t working about the site, and help you know more and more about the site and its upcoming developments.

We will make another announcement before the Q&A with more details on the event, but for now we want you preparing your questions and getting excited, it’s only just over a week away!
