Welcome to the New Newsvine Blog

Newsvine is changing. We're in Beta and nearing the biggest change in the history of the site. We've got a new support section. Now we've got a new blog.

We're starting this blog nearly from scratch because in refreshing the site, we want to renew our commitment to making Newsvine the best news discussion site possible.

One of the most important parts of fulfilling that commitment is improving communication to the people who make Newsvine's success possible:

Newsviners. Our users.

This version of Newsvine Blog doesn't have much content as of this writing - but from the developers to the moderators, we're going to fill it up. There will be features to explain, issues to discuss, and a whole new site to help with.

Discuss this post

Testing.

I'm excited about this and a little nervous. I hope it signals a new era of frequent missives from Newsvine Global HQ and ensuing conversations that cultivate new tools, cooler features, and better users.

I also look forward to when this doesn't look like a nbcnews.com page and instead is a column on the new Newsvine.

Yeah, I understand that these gray discussions don't have the best connotations, VerbalBarb - but we felt it'd be better hosted here than on NV Classic or a product we haven't yet released.

tyler, you said better users.

Can you explain this? Please?

Key term's 'cultivate' there - didn't mean to imply that I hope we get a wave of new 'better users' - though I think New Newsvine will be orders of magnitude better at handling population and I obviously have a vested interest in seeing that population growth. More meta-discussion can help Newsviners use the site better.

I can only hope that this new format might help me remedy the problems I've had with viewing my comments and responding.... fingers crossed

I must say I envision people being picked last or not at all when it comes to the Nations. Is Newsvine to become a site based on popularity? That's going to hurt quite a few of us, me included, I know.

I'm terrible about keeping to my groups; I'll have no choice but to learn to do that with Beta, I think. I believe anyone can ask to join a Nation (someone tell me if I'm wrong?).

I figured I'd just see where my buds are and ask to sign up. Hopefully, some will think of me, but if not, I'll hunt them down!! ;0)

tyler says: I also look forward to when this doesn't look like a nbcnews.com

Actually, I think the point is to be more integrated with nbcnews.com; a new jointness where legacy Newsvine users mix more with the 'general population'. Where the wiser veterans espouse their philosophical knowledge to the public, -as frustrating as that may seem-. The isolation of the clique, gives way to the enlightenment of the masses.

This was done by the musical entertainers during Mao's tenure, where bands of movie stars, entertainers, poets, and writer's traveled among the countryside to educate and enlighten the population at large, giving them a sense of patriotism and purpose for the country in their lives, but then I digress.

The point being, to emulate a oneness, not a separateness.

I have to say that the layout of this looks very impressive, very appealing to the eye.

I also have a secret yen for shiny new toys, and this looks nice and shiny..:o)

but things can always change, maybe.

We hope, but perhaps we'll get used to this and won't want it changed. That's the thing about life. We always adapt, I suppose.

I also like the newer and older tags on both sides of the page. Easy to keep up with what's happening.

No More Private Chat …

It is truly sad that when Newsvine changes from Groups to Nations that we will no longer be permitted to have the privacy we have become accustomed to and will no longer have a “Group Talk” module that is heavily used by many Groups.

IMO this will discourage the growth and expansion of Nations / Newsvine

OMG.

NV has morphed into an ugly bastard stepchild of FBs hook up w/ NBC!

Yikes.

No one needs to have their avatar displayed a gazillion times. It's so 1999. I hate that. Who cares? Who wants to see tiny squished pictures of already tiny squished pictures? NBC pgs always make my hard disk hum louder from so many graphix to load up & I swear it's gotten worse since the FB hookup. *Post to my FB wall* pffft. Why? Who wants some totally random no-context comment popping up there? Not that I ever use FB. It's boring pointless drivel. And all the FB ppl are rude. NBC Latino is unmoderated & horrific in commentary since that switched to FB only. Who needs em? I loathe this obsession w/ FB that every website seems to have. It ain't the hub of the universe for the majority of ppl. I am never posting to FB from NV. Get over that nonsense.

If this is what beta looks like, Dowser can do a video of me skipping off into the sunset. Yuck.

scar... I sooooooo needed to read you tonight! LOL ..Christmas depression has set in (some might understand that; others, not so much:) and a good dose of your 'tellin' it like it is' - is always uplifting. lol

I get that "hum" too.

FB and NBC - Chummy, aren't they!! What one doesn't think of, the other will, kinda like puppies. The key is to keep lots of papers around, to make clean-up easier.

*Post to my FB wall* pffft. Why? Who wants some totally random no-context comment popping up there?

Puppies don't make sense, they just try new things to see if they can get away with it. But, if either one of them starts 'digging' on my Column, or chewing up my articles, or drooling on them with "boring pointless slobber drivel," that's where I put my foot down!

PS>Can we please get rid of that annoying BS ad of the cop holding the virulently flashing radar gun? Are you trying to gives ppl seizures?

It only just occurred to me, but I would really like to track (or retrieve) not just my comments, but those of my friends more easily. The old NV had this feature where the avatars of those who replied were up on the header of the article or seed, but what borked it was that there were also the votes up next to each avatar so that nefarious gaming resulted.

Just thinking...

We decided it would be better hosted here rather than on NV Classic or on a product we haven't released yet.

The new beta is missing about 80% of the functionality of classic.

The new Newsvine has the ability to write articles, seed links, post comments, track conversations, participate in groups and publish your own column all within the great community that already exists here on Newsvine. I'd say it has over 80% of the functionality of Classic. True, a few features are missing but that doesn't mean they won't make a comeback in the future after we launch.

Agreed with scar. There is a place in the world of the internet for groups of like-minded people to get together and discuss things without the whole web getting to see the conversation. I don't care what Zuckerberg thinks, at times there IS a need for privacy. Some conversations just don't need trolls and when a group is involved email is not an adequate substitute.

Once NV takes way that ability to go to a quiet place where the outside world is excluded isn't there a risk of losing membership due to that?

We're in the final stages of fixing critical bugs and adding a bit of polish to a few key features. We've been in Beta for the past few months and we've had a few hundred users give it a test run. We plan to announce the switch over a few days in advance and then the actual transition will be instantaneous and won't require any updates or action on your part.

When or if it works, which it wasn't doing last night ... had to just close out and start over. But apparently there will NOT even be ANY tracking in the new version, just chronological order by entry time?

Not sure what you mean? The new Newsvine has a new and improved conversation tracker that will make it easier to track more conversations.

That's good to know. I kept reading in several different beta discussions that there would be no tracking to follow.

Per usual, the lady with her beloved Rottweilers comes to my rescue. Thank you Ma'am.

If you click the back button, you'll eventually end up at the page you were on before you came here. :-)

But that ain't how I roll. I open new tabs for everything & then shut the window I navigated out of by doing so. That back button is so 2005 :P

Hey, Lance. Thanks for your input.

The new Newsvine has a new and improved conversation tracker that will make it easier to track more conversations.

All of the comments written by Beta testers which I have read so far only complain about the absence of a conversation tracker. Have I missed something?

Owners/mgmt/Tyler?: It has been close to a month since it was reported to you folks that some (many?) members were being denied access to Google Adsense. One of the last words we heard from y'all was that you would contact Google and fix this problem, yet the problem still continues, with no farther updates from y'all! It was also said (at about that time) that your main concern was the "Power Users", has that affected your approach to resolving the problem for the little users with Google? Do you have any approximate time frame that could be mentioned that the "Common/Little Users" here on the vine will be/or not be allowed to participate in the advertising revenue such as has been done for the elite users? I realize that we little/non elite users here on the vine do not seem to be as important as the power/elite users, however if we are to be cut out of the loop, it would be extremely kind of y'all to at least man up and tell us? Perhaps you can take a moment and tell us where this group stands in the New and Improved NewsVine plans?

Am I correct in assuming Newsvine is now a blog on NBC.com and at some point NV will no longer maintain it's own site? I avoided the MSN threads on Newsvine because I don't like the format and the people commenting aren't members of Newsvine community. Oh well, what's done is done like it or not.

Elaine, Tyler said above: I also look forward to when this doesn't look like a nbcnews.com page and instead is a column on the new Newsvine.

Ok so here are my questions

Why do we lose our friends list,

Why cant they show to the right of the page like Face Book

Why are groups limited to just 15

Why can't you switch to classis for now on any page

When is beta going to show NEW comments?
