    Is this a glitch or is it just me? On many buzzes, the same reply repeats more than once. Why is that? Even if the same buzz / honey is produced and posted, and people reply or comment or share the buzz - shouldn't the comments/replies appear only once?

    An example of this is the new buzz called "BeBee Interview with: well.. Everyone! Group Project?" -

    @Javier beBee > I'd like to follow up on one of my questions in this post re "beBee Equity":
    Perhaps it's not technically an "ambassador" role, but - Do my services in improving beBee's design count toward my beBee Equity?
    i.e. Is there equity value in making beBee BETTER, as well as in MARKETING beBee?

    I would propose that the design (usability, accessibility, etc.) aspects of "Making beBee all that it can beBee" are especially critical at this early stage.

    Case in point: I've offered several (in my mind) valuable, actionable observations re beBee design in this thread. I just suggested (below) a way to make it much easier for people to engage in Affinity on beBee. It's a technique that has implications for your interaction design across the service. It's valuable stuff, but I don't see the equity value reflected in the description of Ambassadorship. Clarification?

    *hmmm ... @Federico Álvarez San Martín: I notice that Comments didn't "take" the @ sign for Kevin's name ... until I connected with him. I'd say that the algorithm should be context-sensitive, rather than connection-sensitive. i.e. It should offer up links to the "Kevin's" in this Comment stream. Then offer the opportunity to connect (or do it implicitly) when I choose to address him.

    Ya see, Kevin - I just can't escape the compulsion.

    @John Vaughan, my first son is a Six Sigma Black Belt and is an expert at finding ways to do things more efficiently. I can't take him anywhere. Whenever we go to a restaurant he can't help but come up with a list of several things that could me done better. Me, I enjoy my meal in ignorant bliss. Being a UX designer must drive you nuts... bad UX design is bad enough for us non professionals. PS... my second son is in school right now specializing in UX design.

    Hi @John Vaughan. I completely agree with you. I didn’t mean technical as in technique, what I meant is that it is not up to communications, so I can’t explain much more than the decisions on the actual blog/content part. But I’m sure Miriam and Federico will gladly help with those doubts!

    The blog is visible when you’re not logged in -- on the homepage -- and at the footer when you are log in. I too believe every user should be able to access it in a more obvious way. Nevertheless we are working on many things and, for now -- and although we have grown a lot -- we are not a huge team as on other social networks. But we’re trying very hard and we take all the info you guys provide into account. That I can say. Thanks again, John.

    #20 @Tersa Gezze (continued)
    Glad to hear that there will be changes to beBee's current design - particularly as regards FAQ's, self-servicing, and acceptance.

    There are some standard best practices:

    In my opinion, usability is not actually "a technical decision".

    My role - as a UX professional - is to explore doubt. And provide solutions.

    As noted in the article above: The human dynamics of Change are always an interesting exercise.

    Best of luck

    #20 Hi @Teresa Gezze

    My only requests were:
    1) What does allowing someone to be an Administrator for my hive mean to me?
    2) How would I find beBeeBlog through the existing UI?

    If you can provide that info, I'd be appreciative.

    #19 No: [ shift ] + [ enter ] - which "works" in Facebook - doesn't work here
    John Vaughan
    28/06/2016 #26 John Vaughan
    #19 BTW: The only way I managed to create paragraphs in my previous comment was by typing my message in Notepad, then cut&paste. Not exactly ... er ... "usable"
    John Vaughan
    28/06/2016 #25 John Vaughan
    #19 Oh, Sweet Jesus. Here's another one, @Federico Álvarez San Martín

    Now your Messaging interface SENDS the message when I hit the [ Enter ] key twice. It's very Facebook-y, but it means that - from the keyboard - I end up sending only one line of my message, when all I really wanted to do was start a new line of text.

    LinkedIn tried to implement this theoretically-helpful-but-actually-stupid technique several months ago. It didn't work. It was broadly despised.

    Check it out.

    and ... Don't emulate your competitor's bad design.

    #14 Hello @John Vaughan

    To answer your request and suggestion.

    beBee blog is more than just the beBee Guide, which means it is a section inside it and that is why it’s not listed. The FAQ’s and the blog (which includes the guides) are two different things.
    The way the beBee Guide is shown on beBee is not actually our call, more of a technical decision regarding Javier.
    The FAQ’s will be on the site, accessible from anywhere on beBee. These listed question will have short answers that link to step-by-step explanations on beBee Guide. Each short answer will have a link to a longer and more specific guide.

    I hope this will satisfy your doubts. And as I said before we’re working hard to create a FAQ list that will include all the links: beBee Guide, Support, Contact and Feedback.

    Thanks for your attention, John.

    27/06/2016 #18 John Vaughan
    @Federico Álvarez San Martín>
    The ability to reference someone in a comment is a nice feature, but iffy. beBee sometimes doesn't recognize / link to a name as I type it. Haven't identified a pattern yet, but it's iffy. Typing the @ sign + name seems to work better.

    @Teresa Gezze > I would be happy to "suggest any questions that you think are important and should be on that [ FAQ's ] page", but cannot message you through your name link here. Please see details in my message below.
    John Vaughan
    27/06/2016 #16 John Vaughan
    Okay. So I've just identified another glitch (probably why my original message got lost)

    Your comment system doesn't accommodate messages beyond a certain size. I attempted to send the previous 2 messages as one file - and beBee lost it. Fortunately, I saved the message offline and then cut it into 2 parts. Which beBee didn't choke on.

    Obviously, you've got an internal limitation on message size
    BUT you don't tell us about it
    This results in a nasty and unnecessary surprise

    Okay, @Federico Álvarez San Martín, over to you and Alberto Anaya Arcas ...

    Two possible solutions:
    1) increase allowable message size
    2) pop up an error message before destroying my work

    Option #1 = better
    John Vaughan
    27/06/2016 #15 John Vaughan
    John's Lost Message (laboriously and lovingly re-created, for your viewing pleasure) Part 2

    I appreciate getting the email invitation from beBee that someone wants to be an Administrator for my Hive, but What does that mean ... to me? A short contextual explanation would be nice. At the very least a link to the relevant article in FAQ's.

    Pamela & Paul>
    The "silver-plattering of self-service" is one of the essential Best Practices in any interactive environment: If you suggest something, then link to it. I got to beBeeBlog with one click, thanks-for-the-link. Providing a link to Glitch Hitch (Pamela) and Cheat Sheet (Pablo) makes it likelier that I'll actually do it. Just sayin'

    Federico and Alberto>
    Thanks for the connect. I look forward to working with you guys. It will occasionally be awkward (QA always is), but valuable (QA always is).

    net/Net: Yes, the personal responsiveness of beBee is much appreciated, esp. after a few years of LinkedIn. And I believe that it all goes to the soul of "affinity"

    Feature Request: Sticky Posts For Hives

    Wayne Yoshida
    30/07/2016 #2 Wayne Yoshida
    Thank you, @Neal Rauhauser - I think a "Sticky" is a good idea. Many "community" sites have this - they contain rule reminders and important or - "permanent" topics at the top, and remain there (stick there) no matter what else gets posted. A good example might be a profile of the Hive Admin or Admins. This is a Hive Admin feature that could be useful. I would vote for it.

    #12 I hera you. I wanted to do the same thing for tips & tricks on the beBee Cheat Sheet hive. You could try renaming the image every time. image00001.png, image00002 etc. I have no idea how "intelligent" the filter is.
    Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    23/06/2016 #11 Paul "Pablo" Croubalian
    If you are providing the same link the system will see it as the same thing. This is intended to avoid duplicate content. A workaround may be to add something like ?xxx=1 then ?xxx=2 etc to the end of each URL. If a ? already exists, use a &. That "should" have no effect on where the link points and "may" get around the issue. I had a simlar problem posting to the beBee Cheat Sheet. I wanted to use the same image for all posts. I have to rename them each time.

    #9 Great @Neal Rauhauser. Anyway you can post with link and image to share in hive.
    Federico Álvarez San Martín
    22/06/2016 #8 Federico Álvarez San Martín
    Hi Neal,
    In the first case, it must be because the link is not quality as to share in hives. In loading web has to have the image and title to be able to share. If not published directly on followers. In the second itself is shared colmene because the image is loaded.

    As a suggestion, when you include a URL and you check it does not load the image display of the web, copy the link and add a related image, so you can share in the hive you want.

    Any questions you can write me falvarez@bebee.com.

    Best regards.
