CR4 Social Media Buttons!

Posted October 08, 2012 10:04 AM by Mizuti

They're here!

At the top of the homepage, on the banner, you'll see a set of buttons that link to all of our various social media platforms. No one is obligated to join any of them, and they will not affect how the site is run overall. Each piece of social media simply offers something a little extra for those that can't log into CR4 every day, or wish to see what's going on around CR4 while perusing some of their favorite networks!

Here's some examples of the little extra bonuses that being apart of the various social media platforms gives:

  • The Google+ page sometimes leaks the picture to "What Is It?" and "Guess the Architecture!" a couple hours early
  • The Facebook page helps connect members together
  • The Twitter page has all the engineering news run through it, so you can check the headlines on the go
  • Every "Like", "Follow", and "+1" helps spread the word about CR4!

You may also notice that the broken "Send this to someone" at the bottom of every thread has been replaced with more social tools. These allow you to more easily share threads and blogs through email, Facebook, tumblr, and much more! We're hoping there are no bugs with it, but if there is, please let any of the CR4 Admin know. These share tools will help you send articles or forum posts that you find interesting out to your friends, and it utilizes the space that a broken tool once had!

This is one small step for CR4, and one giant leap towards a forum with more utility! If anyone has any questions or suggestions for more improvements, please feel free to post below, or PM any of the Admins and we'll get back to you as best as we can!

Social media?
Facebook has got to be some of the worst and most pointless software ever written! I rue the day I signed up following the death of a relative so that we could share photos etc.
What nonsense to E-mail you to inform you of a post or 'friend request' and then when you click on the link it has nothing whatsoever to do with what was flagged up.
Or it asks me to sign in??? But it must be me, cos I got the E-mail... and is it some matter of national security?.. no .. it's some 'friend' of a vague aquaintance who's pig on his virtual farm has contracted herpes or some such nonsense.
Now look what you've done.. sent me into rant mode...
Maybe I should tweet about it

Or maybe someone will 'like' my post... or lick my ....
calm calm... nice big breaths

Thank you very much Mizuti !

I'm not allowed to see Youtube videos and many other sites, and now that you added those social media buttons I get the logo of my company right besides them, warning me that I've opened a forbiden site.

I guess I will soon be blocked from accessing CR4.

OK, good bye to all, just in case.

Thanks again Mizuti !!

Just scroll down a little bit? Or go to a more specialized category? The buttons should only appear on the front page's banner, and the sharing tools are discrete enough to be glossed over in a thread. I hope it doesn't get you in trouble!

Good luck!
