I initially started this blog with 1 suggestion, but I'm finding a few others I think that would be useful. In the past I've written similar blogs and the site implemented a few, so I figured I'd give it another try.
1. Add user blogs as examples in mission descriptions
I have been going through trying to complete the missions, because I realized how much I have been learning by having some direction with my thought and research. However, I noticed something which has been bothering me...When I'm reading about the mission objectives, there is no easy way for me to read other agent's blogs who have already completed the mission.
If you notice, we do label our blogs as "evidence" for a certain mission, and they are nicely categorized within our profile, but it would be nice to see the evidence organized this way for everyone to see. I went through the Evidence tab, and found no way to sort evidence there either.
I know the initial idea was to have people "tag" their posts in the tags and subject area, but since we have to "tag" the evidence by mission in order to receive our "Power Votes", it would seem to make sense to leverage that tag in helping people use the site :)
2. Have a button to "follow agent" at the top of every blog
I've been trying to figure out how to NOT get this spam from everyone on the site, but realized it was one of the few effective ways for people to keep up with new blogs.
I'd like to suggest adding a "follow agent" button at the top of each blog, which will email you when a new blog is written by that agent. There might be a "seriously follow agent" button which would email you every time that agent makes a comment as well.
With this new button, I would be comfortable telling people to STOP SPAMMING. But until then, I guess KEEP SPAMMING, because it does help me find blogs...ugh, can't believe I'm saying that. Please Evoke, help us stop spamming each other.
