One of the things we’ve gotten to know about our community is people often have specialized areas of interest. In just one example, we’ve gotten to know Vincent Brown and his interest is in all things Egypt, so we started to think about our tagging game and adjustments we could make to enhance the experience for visitors who want to focus on certain types of objects.
So, today, we are introducing “Change My Settings.” From within Tag! You’re It!, you can now change your game preferences by selecting the areas of our collection that you’d like to see:
As Mike mentioned earlier, joining the Posse is now easier than ever with our Google account integration and we are excited enough about these enhancements, that Bob (along with a few willing participants) made us a really awesome video to celebrate. Have fun tagging and many thanks for all your enthusiasm (50,000+ tags!!) thus far!
