      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.

The Boquete Knitters and Quilters is a tri-cultural (we have ex-pat, Latina Panamanian and Ngabe-Bugle Panamanian members), tri-craftual (we have knitters, crocheters and quilters) organization that creates baby quilts, blankets, caps, sweaters and booties for our neediest, tiniest neighbors.  We also supply chemo caps to the Obaldia Hospital in David, as well as donate finished items to their newborn nursery.

We are so grateful when people tuck yarn into a suitcase and bring it down for our use.  We especially love Lion Brand Homespun, Lion Brand Pound of Love, Red Heart Soft and Caron Simply Soft, but we have thus far managed to use virtually very yard of yarn we've been given -- even unraveling worn out afghans for the yarn!  The yarns we prefer are available at WalMart, Joann, Michael's, and Hobby Lobby, and are acrylic -- strong enough to be beaten on a rock in the river.

We also have a Paypal account: BoqueteKnitters@hotmail.com.  Every nickel we raise goes toward the purchase of yarn, batting, fabric, thread, buttons and bindings.  And every finished product keeps a child wrapped in soft warmth -- and our love.

We invite you to drop by the Fundacion pro Integracion (Handicap Foundation) in Alto Boquete where we meet, to see us at work and to admire our work.  Every Friday afternoon between 1 and 3 PM.
