After the first day of being public, we’ve gotten some constructive notes from you, which are summarized below. Most of the feedback we received involves features that we’re developing, but will take a while to implement. In the mean time, feel free to take advantage of the Profile Feedback feature next to everyone’s name to add biographical information, tags, or external links that relate to the profile. Thanks for the thoughts, they influence the direction of our development!
from Phillip Wood:
i like the images, and the linking to the others,
I think i’d like to create some more Lombardi type structures. the http://www.theyrule.net/
is an interesting example.
I thinks it’s getting much more web 2.0 as they say, certainly looks more complete than Beta.
Maybe I’ll want to save my connections, and view them later, or be warned when a desired connection happens in the future.
I could do with larger images to look at the’re a little small.
urm, what else.
well your back end should obviously be tracking the links and views, building a model and possibly adding some weighting on the front end.
ie most popular viewed. favourite person this week on famegame, a famegame award for most viewed.
famegame awards, why not, fuck it. let’s be straight with this stuff, hey you with the hat, you’re the most famous person, here’s a prize. Where are my sponsors for this?
From Andrew Der:
It’ll be interesting to see how accurate the statistics are once more information has been factored in, since — based on my very cursory perusal of the site — a lot of the stats seem a bit askew.
We’ll adding all the old statistics from excesdaily.com with graphs, coming soon.
From Ceslie Armstrong:
Looks like a great site. Keep going! I emailed
some tag suggestions via the contact field on the site. Also, please
place me in MEDIA.
From Roy Kean:
You have me listed as both Roy Kean and Roy Keane.
It’s going to take a while to weed out all the duplicate names and misspellings, but we’re workin on it. Apologies.
From F. Sheeran:
I quickly browsed seems to be put together well. Congrats!
From Alexandra Lebenthal:
pretty darn cool- would be great if you had a section that could link
to someones website- also will someone be notified when they have a
new entry or one for someone they indicate they’d like to be informed
From Lorre White:
I was looking around your site. You had sent something out a long time ago
where one was to type in their name and a number came up for sphere of
influence? I found it interesting that since I typed my name in then and
now it was the same number despite the fact that I have been on several
national networks numerous times, have started w magazine column and
developed a highly popular blog. Are you sure this system is current? Just
common sense seems to indicate that this is inaccurate? If nothing ever
changes then there is no need to come to the site twice. It would just be
something that I would look into. Others names I typed in had not changed
either. I am not as familiar with their changes so it is harder for me to
comment…..but I think you can see the point ; )
From Kelly Will:
hysterical! i love the rating system. xoxo
From Spencer Alcorn:
I don’t know what your original mission
was (is?), but I think you have an opportunity to do something very
interesting here, and establishing a site filled with original content
would be more constructive than the (admittedly very efficient) fields
of thumbnails and abstract-less and often-duplicated links. Allow me
to go out on a limb here and say that, insofar as “thought
experiments” go, your site has a great deal of evolving to do –
perhaps even to the point of developing some original thoughts.
As for the timing of your launch, I’ll say nothing beyond a genuine
expression of interest in what your site will become.
We’ll be adding original content soon, but we wanted feedback from people who will be using the site first.
From Andrew Saffir:
Looks great!!! Thanks so much for including me (and Daniel) in what is
truly a very unique take on the NY world! Keep up the good work! I’ll
