More functionality

July 30, 2008

We’ve just put a new release up at mymisson2.com, which on the one hand adds lots of fun new functions, and on the other hand fixes a few bugs that crept in to the last release!

With over 50,000 missioners, we had to have a good hard look at the back-end architecture of the product to see how far it would take us.  Well, our friends over at Spika have done a terrific job, and we’re well on track to keep growing the system with the same architecture, with a few tweaks, for some time.

Not having to worry about that has allowed us to bring a few things forward that we have been wanting to do for some time.  You will now see that every category, and ever mission, has its own chat room.  At the moment, you can only access that on the site itself, but soon you’ll be able to access it from anywhere.  We’ve also added social bookmarking functionality, and changed our Facebook integration to bring us in line with the new platform.

The point system has had an overhaul as well, so that you only get points if you have filled out your profile.  That said, you can now respond and start missions without the need to input a full profile, so it’s six of one and half a dozen of the other.  Of course, if you register, you could win Amazon vouchers!  We’re also giving away more points for responding to other people’s missions.

We’re always open to suggestions, so keep them coming through to control at mymission2.com


Was it a fair battle?

– 2nd prize went to Modern Cliches

– 3rd prize went to A Riot in Heaven

– Runners up were The 3rd Fire and Sean Clothier

Click here for a press release. Photos and (hopefully) video will be coming soon!

But what do you think? Post comments to this post if you think we didn’t judge fairly on the night or if you have any comments about the night.


You are invited to … The Monday Mission!

July 10, 2008

Mondays are usually boring … so we decided to hold monthly events on Mondays and we’re calling them The Monday Mission.

Our first event is a battle of the bands and it’s going to be held on Monday July 28th in London. Click here for more info and to check out the bands.

The venue is the fabulous Ramshackle and its new owners are restoring it to its former glory when bands such as Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin and the Sex Pistols played there!

We’ve got some great sponsorship from The Bunker Studio, Studiospares, The Premises Studios, Shure and Vinyl Junkies which means there are some fab prizes for the bands to win.

The audience will decide who wins! At the end we’ll ask the audience to cheer for each band … so we need you to come and support the band you know or just cheer for the band you like the most.

Tickets are £5 in advance or £6 on the door. You can buy them here.
