New Menu Options in Profile

When viewing the profile, some people in mobile mode were not using or finding the message and conversation tabs efficiently. 

  • Messenger - a quick, direct chat with another person - private view
  • Conversation - a PM or DM, more like an on site email - private view
  • Follow - this allows you to follow their posts, pics, updates, etc
  • Add Friend - This allows you to request them to be your friend.
  • Block - This Blocks them from your viewing your profile
  • Update - this is posted to their profile for public view

  • Thanks for doing this. I wasn't sure if the conversation was public or private due to the like buttons and all that lol. Another thing to consider. I get notifications when I get friend requests and conversations, but not the Direct Messenger? I notice people are using that a little more so if we can get notifications for that, that would help too. Thanks a lot.

    • NadiaDivino Direct messenger notifications are more for someone online, a quick chat here and there. If the system sent an email every time a message was sent one way then the other all it would be doing is sending emails, and you would probably get annoyed by it.

      Conversations are the preferred method of communication.

      Vouching information.  Premium and above members can vouch and view vouches (this will change to premium plus membership in April.    Simply click the thumbs up icon on a persons profile to supply a vouch. Click the number next to the thumbs up to view who has vouched.  This is different than the old site because there is no color system associated. This is simply a quick reference for those you would vouch for or know in real life to be an asset to the community.  On mobile you will have to click the three dots icon to view the vouch button.  #newindys #vouch #vouching #instructions #announcements

      Indys has changed. Some people like the new site, some people won't. One thing for certain is it will take us all time to get used to. #FOSTA played a big role in the changing of the site, and we knew changes were coming earlier last year. Indys started life as a directory style site, much like Eros, and here is where we find ourselves again. When Eccie went down, and Indys went down the same day in December, a lot of people asked how do we keep in touch. This is the answer. The review system, the vouch systems, the constant drama from the forums. Each person is responsible for themselves. Follow the very simple rules, and do what is best for you. Stay in touch with friends, and out of tou

      How to Make a Post

      Might as well start at the beginning. How to make a post. A short video if you are doing it on a computer vs mobile. Making a post is pretty easy from most parts of the site, just look for the posts button. A post is a topic, something of a little more substance. Don't confuse this with an 'update' and update is generally time related, like a twitter post, it can be reposted, its more of a 'I'm having a great day'   Computer: https://www.screencast.com/t/hmOcmOodxgyC    Mobile https://www.screencast.com/t/Av1mXgihL      #howtopost #instructions #newindys #training #ads

      New Direction

      • · Indys
      A new direction, think of this version of Indys as more of a social media style site. This is member-centric. We will still have feature slots and more but getting away from the forum-centric base that causes so much drama. Simply befriend people as you see fit and enjoy. We will have spaces for groups of like minded people to come and discuss ideas, and some cool chat features. This site looks great on a computer, phone or tablet. Alleviates any issues with image resizing or other antiquated issues the old site had. Anyone that signs up before 2/1 will receive free photo gallery, anyone that is feature on Indys will receive feature here for free until 3/1 Thanks for joining! #newindys #
