We have implemented a great new feature on ModMyRV.com. It’s called “I Did This Mod!” This feature helps members share the mods they have completed with other members and non-members. It works like this:
When a member views a mod on ModMyRV.com, they have the ability to flag a mod as one they have completed so everyone visiting the page of the mod knows they did it. This is done by clicking on the “I Did This Mod!” button to the right of the topmost mod picture. Once clicked, an image associated with the member, called a gravatar, is displayed in a box near the top of the sidebar, along with other members who have done the mod.
A viewer of the mod can then hover their mouse over the gravatar and see the member’s name who did the mod. The viewer can also click on the gravatar and see a popup of a complete list of all mods that member has done, with links to each mod so the viewer can easily view a mod of interest. The popup also contains a link to contact the member who did the mod. This way, the viewer can ask a question of the member if he or she needs help or advice. The link is the email address the member provided when they registered on ModMyRV.com.
If the viewer is not a ModMyRV.com member, he or she must register and become a member before “doing the mod”. If the viewer is looking at a mod they have done and they want to let others know, they simply click on the “I Did This Mod!” button and they viewer will be taken to a login form where they can register. Once registered, they will be redirected back to the mod they were viewing and their gravatar will appear in the sidebar.
If you don’t have a gravatar, head over to http://www.gravatar.com and sign up for one. It’s free and only requires your email address. Once you have a gravatar, it will appear in the ModMyRV.com side bar automatically. Otherwise, you get a cool silhouette gravatar displayed by default. It might even look like you!
We hope you enjoy this new feature. Please let us know if you experience any trouble using it. And please give use your feed back in the forums. Happy modding!
