blog post Report Uvumi Groups Are Officially Live

Posted on Jun 1, 2010 - 8:00 by Marshall Stokes
Uvumi.com went offline for a few hours late last night as we rolled out the code for Uvumi Groups and converted existing band-groups and content. Some server maintenance was also performed in preparation for future upgrades, and everything seems to be up and running without any major issues.

Group owners and members should be aware that groups which were converted last night will need to be examined, as the new group profile image size is different than the old one, and for simplicity's sake we reset it to the system default image, which is rather boring. Also, groups are private and moderated by default, so if you want everyone to be able to create discussions and/or post new photos, owners and managers should update group settings on the main page for each group.

You will also notice that we removed the 'Songs' link from the handy dropdown navigation menu (hover your mouse over the username just beneath the player), and replaced it with a link to your Groups management page.

I'm sure there will be questions, complaints, bug reports, etc, so please send those my way, either by leaving a comment here or emailing support@uvumi.com, and we'll work to resolve any issues as quickly as possible.

Your feedback is critical to the success of this project, so please let us know what you think!

    My group now have a picture and I've changed the description! It was easy to change, that's very cool. :D

    My suggestion is to add a "change picture" text link on the blank room at the right side after the group name, floating there aligned to the right. That's because everytime I see the group picture and wants to move to the main windows, I choose by instinct to click on the picture and it query me about changing the picture every time. I think it would be nice if it could actually move you to the main screen instead of that.

    Thanks Marshall!

      We launched an update today to fix a terrible bug that prevented linux users from uploading photos and songs, and with this release the improvement you suggested has been implemented. Thanks for the idea!

    I ran some quick tests this morning and found a few minor bugs. They were easily fixed, but I apologize for the annoying forced refreshes as I updated the system!
