Lisa Vegan (LisaVegan) | 8939 comments Yes, I really appreciate all the effort & responsiveness. I've been without power all day due to storms. After I (turned on some lights &) caught up with the important emails, came to Goodreads next. Addicted! Thank goodness I have a good booklight. ;-)

Lisa Vegan (LisaVegan) | 8939 comments Thank you for the extra book information when we do book searches that we can see before we get into the books' pages:

avg rating 4.21 — 10718 ratings — published 1962

when A Wrinkle in Time is typed for a book search.

Very helpful!

Yes, I am enjoying that. Wasn't sure what Rivka meant until I just saw it on my update feed. Thanks GR.

It looked so boring before :)


message 13: by Lisa (new)

Lisa Vegan (LisaVegan) | 8939 comments I just signed in a see a "add to top friends" for all my friends; the checkmarks are there by default. I know that a lot of members wanted a top friends choice.

Otis, or anybody, I'm assuming the checkmarks checked means those are "top friends," but could you please tell us the difference between "top" friends and those who aren't? Thanks!


message 14: by Lisa (new)

Lisa Vegan (LisaVegan) | 8939 comments Ah, and the recommend it for each book is now so easy to find!!!!

So many improvements! Thank you.

Tim | 93 comments Hiya Lisa, keep the tick in those friends of whom you wish to see their news feed. In the home page there is an option to only see the feeds of those who are 'top friends'. Handy for people with a big friend list i would guess as they could untick many people they dont wish to get feeds from.

edit: the only thing i would suggest is if there is away to retain the setting there it would be handy.. ie when i choose "top friends" feed.. and then navigate away.. when i next come back to my home page it defaults back to all 'friends'.

Tim | 93 comments lol Otis Otis.. sneaking in code for requests and not telling us.. ;)

*just spotted the "challenge question" for new friends request in the account section* hehe


message 17: by Lisa (new)

Lisa Vegan (LisaVegan) | 8939 comments Tim, Thanks for your very prompt response. I thought that's what it might be but I wasn't sure.

I've kept my friends list to an almost manageable number because I enjoy reading all of the updates, but some days my friends updates number over 400 so I might have to use this feature at some point.

Kathrynn | 517 comments I'm finding all kinds of neat new features.

Well done to you all and thank you!

Melody (runningtune) | 81 comments Tim, You have to save the settings on each page in order for your changes to take effect.


message 22: by rivka, librarian moderator (new)

rivka | 12269 comments Mod
Melody, that's not what he's talking about, I think.

Go to your home page, and it defaults to the all-friends view. Choose "top friends" and it changes; but go elsewhere and then back to home, and you're back to the default all-friends view.

I'd like to have it "stick" too, please.


message 23: by Otis, Chief Goodreader (new)

Otis Chandler | 4184 comments Mod
Sticking should launch tomorrow!


message 24: by rivka, librarian moderator (new)

rivka | 12269 comments Mod
Hooray for sticking! And easily being able to see what threads have new posts! And the "newest" link! :D


message 25: by Lisa (new)

Lisa Vegan (LisaVegan) | 8939 comments The fairly new "unread" posts feature is saving me so much time. Thanks so much. I love it! More time now to play the trivia quiz, and maybe even do some more reading. ;-)


message 26: by Lisa (new)

Lisa Vegan (LisaVegan) | 8939 comments Ooh. Just noticed the "books" choice for home page updates. Great option.

All of the many new features are wonderful..
