Many of you may have noticed something different on redroom.com. Last night we began to roll out completely new author and member search pages. I'm very excited about this as it will allow us even more opportunity to showcase the fantastic community we have here.
This blog post is going to focus on the newly designed Member Search page. This feature is a quick, easy way to find other Red Room members and explore content uploaded by them. The page is divided into a few different categories:
FEATURED RED ROOM MEMBERS
These members are chosen on the basis of high levels of participation: they blog, upload other types of content (videos, podcasts, etc.), comment on others' blogs, etc. If you want to be a featured member make sure to blog and add lots of content to your page. If you want to recommend that we feature yours or someone else's member page, contact us.
If you know the name of the Red Room member you're looking for, just type it into the search box and press search. A new page will open containing your results.
POPULAR RED ROOM MEMBERS
This shows members whose pages have been viewed most recently. If you want to appear here tell all your friends to visit you on redroom.com. Also don't forget to add a Red Room badge to your other internet profiles (i.e myspace, facebook, etc..).
Every week, Red Room spotlights one member who using the site to promote his or her own writing. If you are interested in becoming featured here, be sure to contact us. We are usually most interested in featuring those who have uploaded lots of content to their My Writing profiles.
NEW RED ROOM MEMBER PROFILES
These are the members who have most recently built member profiles. If you haven't yet completed your member profile, get started! If you need help or have questions about getting started see our FAQ section or contact us.
