Hi @danny. I wanted to ask if it is OK to post jobs here? My partner's company, Properly is hiring and they would love to hire people who are hosts and/or within the VR industry if possible. Thanks!

Hey Tammi,

Of course it's ok! I've created a new "Jobs" category / tag for you. Perhaps when you write the title, have a standardised format, like "[JOB] Properly is hiring a JOB TITLE in JOB LOCATION".

I've been planning to add jobs as a real section when the site grows larger - but you're welcome to add jobs in the meantime. πŸ€“

Hey Tammy, did you post this? Can you link to it so I can see what you did? We're actually also looking for people for Guest Hook and figured that there may be some pro writers in the community who might like to write for us! Thanks! Andy

Hi Andy. Are you referring to the job post. Alex, Properly founder, is my partner. I'd be happy to talk more about writing or partnering in some way. Feel free to write to me at [email protected] Cheers!

Hey, yes I was referring to the job post. It was more to see how you'd posted it because we'd like to also post a job. But I actually found it just searching "jobs" which I should have done to start with :) But, hey, since you mention it, that'd be great to connect. Just emailed you! Cheers, Andy

Hey @danny, I noticed when creating a post, users have the option to send popups which are marked under "admin". I presume this functionality is only meant to be seen by admins?

Also, sometimes pages don't load when you visit them directly.

Hey Jan,

Thank you πŸ˜€.

Karma points are essentially a "score" for how activate you are within the community. The more karma you have, the more power your upvotes are worth (meaning you have greater influence over the ranking of posts) - also if you reach 500 points, you can automatically submit posts to curated lists.

There's two ways to earn karma points:

  1. Get upvotes to your posts
  2. Get upvotes to your comments

Note: An upvote is the number to the left of the post or comment. Each upvote is worth 10 karma points.

P.S. I'll make profile photos the next thing I build into Smarthosts.org πŸ‘

@danny Great site! Thank you for putting it together. I'm having trouble updating my profile bio and adding a picture. I keep getting a "Match not found" message. And I can't figure out how to update my picture though I see that others have been able to add photos. Both could well be user error on my part. Thanks!

Hey Tammi, thank you and glad to have you aboard!

Interesting, I see you've updated your bio already, did it work but you still received an error message? I'll look into this right away.

As for profile photos, they're added automatically when you sign up through Facebook, Google or Twitter. Unfortunately, this is not a feature for users who signed up manually - just yet. It's on my todo list and I will notify as soon as the feature is live πŸ˜ƒ

Aw, I see with the profile photo. Makes sense.I got the error message when I tried to update the bio but no worries! Thanks again for creating this resource for hosts. :)

Hey @Danny,

I tried to update my profile but when I pressed submit, it wouldn't save. It gave me an odd message (sorry I've forgotten exactly what it said!!)

Hope that helps,

Elaine

Hey Elaine, thanks for the bug report! Do you remember what you were trying to update? I'll try and replicate the error so I can fix πŸ˜€
