New feature: Show Conversation

Do you wish you could easily see the stream of messages between you and one of your cheezfriends? What a coincidence, so do I! Also, I wish for a pony. And world peace. And infinite wishes.

Luckily, the cheeztechs are able to grant one of those wishes today with the new “Show Conversation” feature. WINNING.

Simply go to your Messages and look for the little “Show Conversation” link.

Tell us about yourself…moar, MOAR!

In response to popular demand, we have increased the size of the “About Me” section on your profile. Now you’ve got more space to tell us all about you and your deepest, darkest secrets. <insert evil laugh here>

Also, we’ve added a handy little character counter to let you know when you are running out of space. Click the “Edit Profile” link on your dashboard to try it out.

Thanks again to everyone for your suggestions!

Long messages are looooooong

That’s right, you can now send longer messages to your friends from your Cheezburger profile. We’ve raised the limit to 2500 characters, so like long cat your messages can be loooooong.

Also, we are adding a handy little counter that will appear when you are getting close to the limit. It will tell you exactly how many characters you have left, like your very own personal awards show orchestra, telling you to “wrap it up”.

UPDATE: The cheeztechs are working on adding the character counter to the “About Me” text box now. Stay tuned, it’s coming! And thank you for all your suggestions. ūüôā

Collectibles History

In our very recent history (2 days ago) we launched a brand new feature for all of you collectible collectors out there in cheez-land… It’s the Collectible History!

Now when you earn a collectible or give a collectible or get a collectible gifted to you, it’ll show up right in your collectibles history. Never not know where a collectible came from again! You’ll always know who to thank for that shiny new collectible! How will you ever manage to thank them? Why perhaps you should gift them another collectible…

You can find the new collectibles history on the bottom right side of your collectibles page at Cheezburger.com.

Organize your Favorite LOLs with Collections

One of the great things about having a Cheezburger profile is that it’s a place to keep track of all your favorite LOLs. See something that’s so funny it makes coffee shoot out your nose? With a profile, you can add that LOL to your favorites and re-live the hilarity again and again.

We’ve noticed that many of our Cheezfriends have amassed amazing collections of the funniest LOLs from throughout the Network, sometimes with thousands of LOLs. To help you be able to better find the best LOLs again and to more easily share Favorites that your friends might enjoy, we are introducing Collections: a feature that allows you to organize your Favorites however you would like.

How do I make a Collection?

Let me give you an example. I love LOLs with cats and computers, as you might expect, given my overall nerdiness. I want to make a Collection that features my favorite geeky LOLcats.

Step 1: I go to My Favorites tab.

Step 2: I make a new Collection…I’ll call it LOLcat Tech Support.

Creating a new collection

Step 3: I select the LOLs already in My Favorites I want to put in the new Collection.
Step 4: I move the selected LOLs using the pull-down menu on the right.

Step 5: I go admire my handiwork by clicking on the Collection name in the navigation bar below the Favorites tab.

Navigating to the new collection

And that’s it! I can easily go look at my favorite tech support kittehs anytime I want and I can send all my geeky friends to go check out the LOLs too. Awkward high fives all around!

So try it out and let us know what you think. Your feedback will be tremendously helpful as we work to improve this feature over time!
