And we’re back…

February 4, 2010

Did you wonder what happened to us?  Certainly quite a few people complained about us not giving any prizes any more!

Things changed a lot for us, and rather than simplyshut down, we decided to retrench and hibernate for a bit.  We’ve had a look at what we do, and decided that we would strip a few things out (the chat function never took off), and start to add some things in, such as the “micro-mission”, which initially will be based mostly around the iPhone.

We have always tried to capture where you are, and we’ve added to that the idea of a timed mission, which closes after a set period of time.  So if you are stuck in the middle of the city, and want to find the best place for a coffee, you could set a quick mission up to find out just that!

We will start to give some prizes out again, although very much Credit Crunch level stuff.

We’re very open to ideas as to what you would like to see.  Be patient, though!

2. Special prizes

– Commissioner of the Month goes to jengoldacker who published a load of  missions in February to do with painting various rooms in her house. We just thought we would give her US$50 as a contribution towards the cost of the paint!

– Responder of the Month goes to Tracy for her many useful responses. What can we say? Tracy is relentless in her wish to help others. We need more people like Tracy! She will receive a special prize worth $50.

3. Special grant

– The February special grant goes to belindayoung who you will all know – she has been amongst the most dedicated missioners month after month. Whether she is publishing interesting missions of her own or helping others achieve their goals, she has most certainly not received the recognition she deserves. She also closes off her missions when completed – something we wish more people would do … it’s a good way to earn more points! We hope that Belinda knows that she is appreciated by so many of our community. Our grant to Belinda is worth US$200.

What to do next …

If your mymission2 username appears above then look out for an email from us which will tell you how to claim your prize. If you haven’t yet received an email and you have checked your junk/spam folder then please make sure your email address is correctly entered into your mymission2 profile! Don’t worry – nobody will see it but we need it to be able to contact you.

Congratulations everyone and happy missioning!

E-lert Overload

January 23, 2009

My apologies if you got 100 new mission alerts – We did change the underlying algorithm to send a few more alerts out – Got a few more than we bargained for, I’m afraid. It will slow down soon, and next week, we’ll be able to stop it going quite so mad


Be alert (because you country needs lerts)

January 22, 2009

We’ve not been sending enought alerts out. So now we’re sending out more. Same old algorithm, but with more people on the list!


Upgrades

January 20, 2009

I’ve put in a new fix today which will hopefully improve the Facebook notification function. I also found in passing 168 missions that haven’t been properly broadcast, so the system is churning through them at the moment – Sorry if you get a few more notifications than usual over the next few hours!


Fix-o-matic

January 14, 2009

Yet more irritating little bugs tracked down and killed!  Anyone who was trying to close a mission could get repeated helper names if they had responded more than once.  No more…

One bug I have found is an occasional random logout if you logged in through Facebook – I know why, I just have to fix it properly….
