New Friends Feature

+4

You may have noticed that we released a new "Friends" feature on JetPunk.

Right now, this feature is very limited. You can be friends. If you are friends with someone, you can see their high scores on quizzes and also view any private quizzes they create.

In the future, we also plan on introducing "Groups" which allow people to post a quiz to a group of people and easily compare scores.

Let me know if you have any questions in the comments.

This. We will probably find ways to incorporate this better. It's a bit tricky due to server performance issues.

Yes, but unlike Mark Zuckerburg, I am a real person, not a space lizard wearing a human skin.

But seriously, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram are cancer. As long as I am dictator of the site, things will never be allowed to progress in a way which is bad for people's mental health or society at large.

Right now, if you want to say something to someone, visit one of their quizzes and leave a comment. However, it's a lot harder if they haven't made any quizzes.

Question: What are private quizzes, and how do you make them?

Jan 21, 2021
Just change visibility from public to private in Step 1 of the quiz editor. This is intended for quizzes that might pertain to a small group of people such as a friend group or family, but are not of general interest to the public. They still must follow all the rules of normal quizzes.

I'm not 100% sure about this new feature. I haven't got a problem with friend requests, but I have a slight reservation.

Once a request is confirmed can the other user then see your non-live unsubmitted quizzes (maybe ones that are saved but not completed) ?

If so this could be an issue if another user steals an original idea someone is working on and then publishes a quiz leaving the originator looking like he or she has copied the quiz from the person that actually stole the idea. I would hope this didn't happen but it is a possibility.

As long as the unsubmitted quizzes are safe then I havent a problem with the feature.

No, other users cannot see your unsubmitted quizzes when friended with you. They can, however, see the quizzes you marked as private.

I know that you launched the Friends feature just yesterday (and I thought it was amazing!), But I was wondering if you could organize the Friends section of this type:

  • Requests accepted;
  • Unanswered requests;
  • Requests denied;
  • Requests received.

It seems to me that we already have two of them, but I think I would organize the page efficiently.

With the revenue generated by Premium users, are you unable to chat? I know this is the third or fourth time we've asked about a private or group chat, but I'm curious to know why you need this revenue, and how much you need.

Unfortunately I can not contribute to the Premium subscription, but I'm curious about this need revenue to create a chat.

I've heard that JetPunk has actually been losing money from premium, though I don't know to what extent. Also, money doesn't even really seem to be the problem with a chat service, it's just the fact that people can take that feature and use for... nefarious purposes. The only way money comes into play is that JetPunk can't a team of lawyers to ward off potential lawsuits from people misusing chat, or however that works.

Sick feature! As somebody who's hung around the outside of the community for several years, I'm hoping this will make it easier to get to know people on the website.

One more question: what about being able to see which quizzes you've commented on? I'm sure I've made some really stupid comments that I'd like to go back and delete, but I don't know where they are...!

Having said that, I think the current balance between quizzing and commenting is about right - if not a bit too squinted in favour of commenting - so understandable if that's not a road you guys want to go down. It would be interesting to know your thinking on it though.
