Improvements to the Activity Feed

The Activity Feed on your My Page has now become a bit more relevant to your daily activities on LEGO CUUSOO. We’ve removed the largest source of clutter on the feed; you’ll now no longer see feed items for each new supporter and comment made to a project you have supported. Now your Activity Feed will show a notification when the following things happen:

Your Account and Project
You’ll receive notifications when:

  • Someone follows you
  • Your project reaches the following supporter milestones: 25, 50, 100, 250, 500, 1,000, 2,000, 3,000, … 10,000
  • Your project receives an official LEGO comment
  • Another user replies to a comment or thread on your project

Projects You Support
You’ll receive notifications when the projecs you support:

  • Are edited or deleted
  • Reache supporter milestones (25, 50…)
  • Receive an official LEGO comment

Projects You Bookmark
You’ll receive notifications when the projecs you bookmark:

  • Reache supporter milestones (25, 50…)
  • Receive an official LEGO comment

Finally, when you follow someone, you’ll be notified when they publish a new project. Do you like the changes to the Activity Feed? Let us know in the comments below.

Making Tags More Useful and Helping Site Performance

Starting next week, the tags on your projects will become more useful. Tags will now be clickable and will take you to a search result page showing projects with the same tag.

We are limiting the number of tags allowed per project to 10, to encourage users to create more meaningful tags so they are more useful in finding both your project and related projects. We will also change the tagging and search algorithm, so the site will be able to handle more traffic. The new tag rules are as follows:

  • Projects can have up to 10 tags
  • Tags can be between 2 and 32 characters
  • Tags may not contain the word “LEGO” alone, but it is acceptable in multi-word tags like “LEGO Architecture.”
  • Tags may not contain the following special characters in a tag: , :, <, or >

Please check your project to make sure it has no more than 10 tags. On Tuesday May 22, we will automatically remove excess tags on projects including tags more then 32 characters.
