“See All Captions” Feature is back!

Hi Burgers!

We are pleased to inform you that the “See All Captions” feature is back! This feature will let you view all of the captions made from the same picture. Many of you told us how important this is for your creative process, and that this feature helps ensure that repeat captions are not submitted. We appreciate your patience while it was temporarily away. The “See All Captions” button will appear on the Single Post Page below the “Recaption” button and it will only appear on pictures that have been recaptioned! Check out this post on the Cheezburger Community Support site for a visual.

We would love to hear what you think about this or answer any questions! Please feel free to post a comment here or email us directly at contactus@cheezburger.com.

Sincerely,

Emily, Will and Heather (Tofu, dollydally81 and poppylady)

The Return of LOLPERA!


2012 Hollywood Fringe Festival
June 10, 17 & 24 @ HUDSON THEATRE | click here for tickets!

LOLPERA is back! If you missed the first sold-out showing of the only epic opera about the Internets (or liked it so much you’re ready for MOAR), we’ve got some great news. Three performances of LOLPERA will be presented as part of the Hollywood Fringe Festival this month and we really, really think you should go.

LA Weekly’s “Pick of the Week,” LOLPERA is a “giddily absurd” opera with a score referencing everything from Gilbert and Sullivan to 80’s power ballads. The libretto is assembled entirely from the internet’s “biggest inside joke”: the multi-user-generated captions and images of the LOLCAT meme.

Check out this video of last year’s performance, buy your tickets, and tell them Cheezburger says O HAI:

ARVE Error: no video ID set

Tell Us What You Think About Voting!

We need your feedback, Burgers!

We are currently testing out a voting system for the new Cheezburger. As we evaluate the results, we’d like to hear what makes you happy when it comes to casting your vote.

This new voting system that has launched on the beta allows you to score the content by clicking a “thumbs down” or a “thumbs up” button. We are trying this system because the majority of “burgers” that were clicked on the old voting system was either 1 burger or 5 burgers–which translates to thumbs down or thumbs up. Let us know what you think!

We haven’t implemented a more in depth and permanent voting method yet because we want to make sure it’s a feature that you will use, and most importantly one that will make you happy.

We’d love to hear what you think! What is important to you when it comes to voting? What information do you like to see as a result of voting? Please feel free to post a comment here or email us directly at contactus@cheezburger.com.

Sincerely,

Scroll through an Infinite Amount of Content!

Hi Burgers!

The new Cheezburger is testing out a different method for you to navigate through featured content! Infinite scroll is now available on all Cheezburger beta sites viewed from Firefox, Safari, and Chrome desktop browsers.

Infinite scroll allows you to view as much content as you’d like without having to click a “previous” or “next” button at the bottom of each page. Now, rather than having to move your mouse to click a button, more content automatically loads as you scroll your way down the page — making it easier for you to engage with the content.

We are excited to test out this new navigational feature, and we’d love to hear what you think! Please feel free to post a comment here or email us directly at contactus@cheezburger.com.

Sincerely,

Emily, Will and Heather (Tofu, dollydally81 and poppylady)

Introducing the “Reposted By” Feature!

Hi Burgers!

We’re happy to announce that we’re bringing a new “Reposted By” feature to the new Cheezburger!

“Reposted By” will bring more functionality to the previous “Favorited By” feature which, according to your feedback, has been greatly missed! In addition to keeping track of who has favorited your post, this will also keep track of who added your post to their Cheezburger Site.

This feature now lets you see more love from your fans—by seeing who’s reposting you and to where. To access this feature from the front page, just click on the post’s title to view the single post page. You’ll see the avatars of everyone who has reposted your content below the post. Clicking through to the single post page from content on your profile (dashboard, favorites, etc.) will also show you who has reposted.

There is plenty more feedback that we are still reading, and we want to keep you in the loop as we continue to implement new features and make adjustments to the new Cheezburger.

As always, if you have any new suggestions or would like to vote and/or comment on an existing idea please let us know here.

Sincerely,

Emily, Will and Heather (Tofu, dollydally81 and poppylady)

LOLmart.com, Y U look different?

Today your friends here at Cheezburger are handing the LOLmart reins over to a new fulfillment center, so you’ll see some changes at lolmart.com. The shirts, books & gifts you have come to love from LOLmart will remain as awesome as ever and we’ll still be 100% involved in the creation of all products and designs. The biggest change is that we’ll now have a team dedicated entirely to the operation of LOLmart, allowing for faster shipping and an even better customer experience. If you have any questions about the new LOLmart, please let us know.

Ohai Burgers!

We are very excited to announce that the “Recaption” tool is back! To access this feature from the front page, just click on the post’s title to view its single post page. Hover your mouse over the image and you’ll see a “Recaption” button appear in the upper right corner. Click this button and you’ll be on your way to recaptioning in the builder in no time!
