Ask the Astroengine Community a Question

question

In an effort to enhance the Astroengine.com community, I’ve now added a rather exciting new feature to the site. If you scroll down, and look at the right-hand side bar, you’ll notice an “ask a question” panel. This gadget is driven by Google Friend Connect, so this should appeal to the majority of readers.

What makes this even more exciting is that the panel is specific to each page you browse on Astroengine.com, so you can ask a question about a certain article and interact with other readers who might have a link or explanation to help you out. For example, I posed a question on the recent article “Mystery Blob Detected 12.9 Billion Light Years Away,” asking what people thought the “blob” was (and my hope that it’s a supermassive black hole… cue a bit of Muse awesomeness).

So, have a play, keep it clean and have fun! Any problems, drop me a comment and I’ll see if I can help.

Thank you Avi for bringing my attention to this great little gadget πŸ™‚

Cheers, Ian

Added Google Friend Connect

Google Friend Connect

In an effort to boost the community “feel” of Astroengine.com, I’ve added the Google Friend Connect widget to the panel to the right. It seems like a great way to communicate the site’s articles and a useful tool for visitors to meet like-minded individuals. I’ll be assessing its effectiveness over the coming days, plus you might see some more tools appear. These moves are all intended to improve Astroengine.com content and boost the number of ways visitors can share information.
