      Enhanced Reputation ("Like" and "Dislike") Functionality Here on CL   07/24/2017

      With the recent software upgrade, CL now has a slightly enhanced and more descriptive "reputation" functionality. The reputation is what CL members can click in the lower right corner of each posting (forums, blogs, calendar events, etc.) to indicate their "like' or "dislike" of that posting. This functionality, previously known as a member's "reputation", has been enhanced and is now known as a member's "reaction". Instead of having only two choices ("like" or "dislike", represented by a +1 or -1), there now are seven different "reactions" that a member can express, including the simple "Like" and "Dislike". As was the case previously with reputations, Administrators of this website cannot be given reputation/reaction, however Moderators can, just as all regular members can. Here in graphic form is the complete list of options in word and emoji form, along with the associated numeric value: The "Like" and the "Upvote" and the "Downvote" are essentially the same as the prior "like" and "dislike" reputation. Those are similar to what is available on some of the larger social media, such as Facebook. As in the past with reputation, the use of reactions is optional. Reputations (now "reactions") are not favored by everyone. Prior feedback indicates approximately 30% of CL's members prefer that "reputation" [and now "reactions"] be disabled. However, the majority of CL's members prefer having the ability to indicate their "like" or "dislike" of a posting. The new, enhanced functionality means simply that CL members have more granularity as to what they can indicate to the viewers. If anyone would like to see additional "reactions", please contact CL management, and include a short discussion of what you would like to see and perhaps an emoji to suggest that reaction. Two new reactions that have already been suggested are "I agree" and "I disagree", which might be expressed respectively with green check mark (or thumbs up) and red X-mark (or thumbs down) style emoji. The reactions functionality is currently configured to display who expressed that reaction. If there is sufficient feedback, we can hide the member's Display Name, and show only the cumulative reactions.           To provide general feedback or ask for help regarding Chiriqui.Life, please leave a posting in Problems, Feedback and Suggestions or email support@chiriqui.life or private message to @Admin_01.

  9. Donation & Support Requests (specific to one entity in an emergency or critical situation)

    To minimize concerns about possible abuse within this forum and regarding donations in general, it is strongly suggested that postings be specific as to who the intended recipient is (by name and a general location of their residence), why they need help (e.g., accident, health crises, earthquake, flood, etc.), what kind of help is needed (e.g., food, clothing, money, furniture, etc.), how and where to deliver the donations/funds, and who and how to contact in case of questions.

  17. Help Desk / Concierge Services

    Use this forum to inquire about where and how things 'work' or get done in Chiriqui, or for an information source/resource. For example, where to get keys made, where to find Thai food, where to get oriental rugs cleaned, etc. Use this forum for "one off" questions for which you need a resource or quick answer (as opposed to a discussion); use the Miscellaneous forum at the bottom of this forum category for more general topics in which a discussion is more appropriate, as opposed to a quick answer.

    This forum is intended for postings of inquiries about things that one ultimately and typically would pay for or engage, and not for advice or general help questions (which more appropriately belong in one of the other topical forums).
