Crispy 2.0 Status Report: Your Status
One of the goals of our redesign is to give readers more ways to connect with Crispy's Game Trust writers and with each other. To this end, on June 1, we're giving all of you a more robust profile with some fun enhancements.
Say you read a really smart comment by a fellow user and wonder what else they're up to on Crispy. Soon, you will be able to click through to their profile page and see all of their recent activity in the community and comments on articles.
In addition, you will have the ability to set a status message, which you can update as often as you'd like. This message will appear along with your username and avatar anywhere you comment on Crispy.
The Game Trust bio pages are also getting a major upgrade, to help you find writers with whom you identify and connect with them. Their bio, community profile, and contributions listing all will be rolled up into one, making it easier to read their most recent articles, blog posts, comments, status and more.
But June 1 is still a few days away, and we're an eager lot. To prepare you for the new Crispy, some members of the Game Trust have generously offered up their statuses in advance. What's up with you? Post your status in the comments so we can all get to know one another better.
