Welcome, Kristi! I'm really excited to see that someone will be focused on managing bug and feature requests. Is it time for a feature-request version of the bug tracker yet? ;)
Welcome, Kristi! Having someone devoted to keeping track of bugs and feature requests is long overdue, and most welcome.
Hi Kristi and welcome!
You sound like the perfect addition to LT. I look forward to chatting with you on Talk.
Welcome, Kristi! I hope you arrived in time for "Talk like a Pirate" Day and got a kick out of it :-)
Progress Reports and Bug Tracking certainly fit into "general geekery", and not too much of a stretch to include them in SciFi, either. Hope you feel right at home in short order.
Welcome to LT. We look forward to your participation and your efforts in support of my favorite website!
Welcome, Kristi! The blog says, "managing new feature requests, keeping track of progress, and following up on bug reports." I am finding it hard to express how happy that makes me. :D
It really is quite impressive, the growing staff: a nominal fee for members, no ads, a robust product that only improves (however slowly many of us may think), yet not achieved through being captive to a marketing conglomerate or other unsavory player in the publishing industry. And for me, at least, a continuing, positive contribution to book culture.
LT remains rara avis and I love it!
>16 elenchus: I just have to say that your comment warmed my heart this morning.
And I think working for LT is pretty much the best.
Thanks elenchus. We're on the upswing I have to say. The app is being developed—as fast as our contractor can work on it. And we're scaling up the coders. Indeed, I think we're going to make another big investment, because—holy shit—having almost 40% of our extra money get taxed at a corporate rate is a nightmare. If we're not going to get to save the money, we should spend it…
>18 timspalding: Such an exciting update! Congratulations on your success.
Welcome, Kristi! You get to work at LibraryThing. How great is that?
*waving at the staff/family* Hi Kristi! It's kinda crazy around here, but we love it. Hope you do too.
Welcome Kristi! You've proved your worth already by fixing the Talk like a Pirate Forever malfunction, which only lasted a few minutes.
I'd like to know what you are eating in your photo. Looks like a bowl of chocolate ice cream?? With a knife and fork??
>28 .Monkey.: Exactly, but clicking on the photo in the blog doesn't do anything.
>2 _Zoe_: Thanks! Maybe after I get settled in a bit eh? :)
>5 SqueakyChu: Thanks! I will reiterate that I'm thrilled to be here, and I'm currently absorbing the wealth of information that is Librarything.com! I will try to keep my responses as prompt as possible. Thanks everyone for the warm welcomes.
>6 bnielsen: I just missed it, but saw it on Facebook -- 'twas mighty fun! er, did I do that right? :)
>9 Collectorator: we shall become great virtual friends then, I think! Psyched to be here. :)
>21 MsMaryAnn: Thank you. So far, wonderful! The staff here are friendly, down-to-earth, and really know their stuff. I will be learning--a lot!
>24 VivienneR: - that would be a popover a la mode at the Jordan Pond House in Acadia Nat'l Park! Very rewarding after a day hike a few summers ago. mmmmmm ice cream and popovers.
Welcome! Wishing you all greatness as work to streamline a great site!
>39 ablachly: I'd say so--you're the owner so you don't count. :)
It's hard to project "down to earth" when you've got cases of books in dead languages scattered everywhere. ;)
so you're even cooler than down-to-earth, then. you're subterranean cool.
Welcome Kristi! It's nice to see another biology major who loves books!
>43 kristilabrie: Good to see you sucking up to Tim appropriately. Now all you need to do is eat some cheese with him. You are going to fit right in. Long may you stay.
I hope you realize there's more than one way to slice that... block of cheese.
Hello! Welcome Kristi! As someone who gets overwhelmed easily, hopefully us LTers won't make that happen to you. Also, I hope none of us are ridiculously vague when requesting new features nor too technical. Nor should we be screaming in caps when it comes to bugs. Or sending the same message a zillion times. I personally want an easier way of reading the talk section because the way it is now, I get overwhelmed and confused...but have no idea how that could be accomplished. If that's being vague, sorry!
Welcome from me, too; have fun :) There's nothing better than a job one actually enjoys! Well, at least I hope you'll have a few mighty good days before you poke your head in the Bug Collectors group ;)
>45 TheoClarke: yes, I do love cheese, no matter how much it might kill me. my blood is half-French, after all. I will never give up cheese!
>48 jeshakespeare: I will consider this my first feature request, so thanks! I think... I'm sure I'll be (perhaps all too) familiar with frequent feature requests in the very near future :)
>51 leselotte: I am pretty psyched about this new path, and feel it fits my work-style so well. I've flirted with the Bug Collectors group but haven't done any deep-diving yet! I'm looking forward to it though, really. :) (Ask me 6 months from now.)
