      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.

I just received a notice regarding our current health insurer, Blue Cross Blue Shield, providing global health insurance.  They have a direct bill relationship now with Mae Lewis in David but only one doctor so far, a surgeon, Dr. Jose Isabel Gonzales Moreno.  It is indicated as 'travel coverage' so it may have time limitations and not apply to current residents.  I will look into this.  Anyone have experience with this?

If it's "travel coverage," it definitely is time-limited, probably one year.

I did confirm that it has no time limit.  And it is underwritten by World Wide (found that in the very small print).  I was told as long as we keep our current policy in force, we would receive the same benefits even if we are out of the country for one year or more.  I'll reconfirm that time limit thing before banking on that.

Yep, you're on the right track.  If you are going to count on that, you need to explicitly describe your planned living circumstance to Blue Shield and then get an equally explicit response from them that they will cover you at Mae Lewis for any condition by any doctor.  Otherwise, you are rolling the dice.
