ChristianBlog.Com is happy (ok, excited!) to announce we have finally gotten around to having a "My Wall" feature here at ChristianBlog.Com!
The "My Wall" is a feature that is displayed on every members profile/bio page and shows the most recent activity of what you and your friends are doing!

Coming soon will be tracking for:

Praise Comment Publication (this might be delayed for awhile)
Gallery Comment Publication
Shoutout Comment Publication
Privacy Settings (turn the wall off/on)
Features We're Considering:
We are also considering adding the following features to the Wall.
Wall-to-wall (a twist on shoutouts... or maybe a complete replacement thereof)
Wall Comments (being able to add comments to wall entries)
Only show wall entries for "closest friends" - instead of all of your friends.
What it looks like:
I'd posted this comment in the Group Owners group in regards to comment notifications to group members. Currently members are not aware of new comments being posted with a group. So, after visiting them a time or two, if there aren't any new postings, they might assume a group is completely inactive and cease visiting it at all.
John suggested that I post my suggestion for consideration. While this isn't "the solution" it might be possible to do until a better solution is found. I have a number of people who post regularly in one of my groups in particular so it's not a huge issue for me but I'm not so sure that is the case with all groups.
[quote]I was staring at my wall a few minutes ago and I noticed I get all sorts of updates from people who are on my friends lists. I get notifications when they post a blog, update their biography, update their status, send a shout-out to someone else, make a comment in a blog or discussion, etc. I get them whether it's related to me or not. It is simply letting me know what my friends have been doing. If I see something of interest to me, I click on it. Otherwise, I ignore it. It doesn't go through private messages at all.
Could notifications that a post was made in a group someone belongs to be added to the wall in a similar manner or is that just not possible? [/quote]
I want to officially announce that the "My Wall" feature has now been activated on ALL members profile pages!
Thank you to the Premier/Gold Members who have provided your feedback since this feature was enabled on your accounts!
ChristianBlog.Com will continue to add additional features/information being pushed to your wall, as we get the chance to add them!

[*] Friends-list Addition [i](when you - or one of your friends - becomes a friend of somebody else)[/i]

As just an ordinary plain Jane, I have been watching all the goodies that you have implemented on CB since I signed into CB several moons ago.. I think you have done a very good job.. Although not requiring all the privileges afforded for the next membership category, I felt last week that perhaps it is time to upgrade to Premier class:) as I have indeed enjoyed some of the excellent blogs on CB. As I do not have Paypal account but I have a US$ checking account I wanted to send you a check -- until I had to stop writing the check because I did not know who I should indicate as Payee.. Pray tell me, should the check be in the name of Christian Blog? or John B Abela or another? I had asked the Support team and they said to send the check to you.. but I need to write the correct Payee before I send it to you. Perhaps you could indicate the Payee also in your instruction for payment by check. I understand that you will have to clear the check which will come from Singapore (have experienced it will take 2 weeks for you to receive the check - Singapore/USA by airmail) before membership is activated. Thanks.
I was blind but now I see! My apologies: for blog above. Was the following added recently to your payment instruction?
Make check payable to: John B. Abela
The check is on its way to you!
It looks like you already found it, but just to make sure...
All payments by check MUST BE made out to: "John B. Abela"
This is because ChristianBlog.Com isn't big enough to be it's own full-size corporation/ministry yet, and thus I have to have anything in my name. I pray this will change one day soon though!
Thank you for being willing to support the ministry/website of ChristianBlog.Com!
