Welcome to the Tech Updates portion of ArtDaily!
ArtFire is a Community Directed Development (CDD) platform. What that means is we take your thoughts, ideas and even issues and annoyances, and turn them into real life web applications. We tailor and tweak our site to work for you, the user. Who better to give the direction of features and functionality?
As a part of our CDD, you will see me in the forums answering questions and fixing bugs. As well as noting any new thoughts and ideas that you may have.
Since I have first hand knowledge of all the inner workings of ArtFire.com, it makes sense for me to be an engagement point for our users. I am better equipped to answer technical questions, and at times I can apply a fix or solution in real time.
At the same time it’s great for me to be able to see exactly what our users are experiencing. I find it much easier to locate and isolate site issues when I can communicate directly with the user that is having the problem. From there I can jump straight into the code and fix the issue with greater efficiency.
I have been a part of the ArtFire.com staff since the launch back in November. Its very refreshing to see such an active, heartwarming community. Since the start I have seen nothing but positive thoughts and advice towards other members as well as towards us. Your all really are a great community, as artisans and as web users.
I will be a big part of your community and the development of your community throughout the future, and I wouldn't have it any other way. Feel free to message me any time with feedback, bugs or anything that crosses your mind. Thank you all for the hard work you put into the community we are building for you.
