Nominations on experts123

Introducing the newest feature of the experts123 site, nominations.

In our efforts to recruit the best experts to the site, and create opportunities for the best social experience, we have launched a nomination feature. This feature doesn’t just allow you to invite other people to the site, it allows you to invite users to be experts in specific topics.

You can nominate experts by just entering their name, email address, and topic of expertise. They will then receive an email from us with an invitation to join the site, who nominated them, and what they have been nominated for. You can also nominate current users to add to their topics of expertise. You’ll find more details about this feature on the nominate page of the site, and you’ll find forms for this option on question pages as well.

Why is this important? Because part of our mission is to bring you the best information possible and we can’t do this alone. As we work to improve the site, we need the help of users like you to bring even better and more qualified experts to the site. We know it can be hard to find the information you need, and why should you trust it to whatever you find on a search engine? So your participation can help us help you put together the best information possible on just about anything.

We will be continuing to add to, and improve the site in the next few months, and are looking for your feedback. Do you have a question? Did you notice something a little funny about one of the new features? Let us know! You can email us anytime at customerservice@experts123.com, or tweet at us, at @experts123, or even drop us a line on Facebook. We promise you’ll hear back from us, and most likely also make a new friend.

Thanks, and we hope to hear from you!

Follow Your Interests, Claim Your Expertise

You may have noticed a few changes to the Experts123 website recently, and we’ve been happy to receive some feedback. One small change we’ve made to users profiles is the appearance of ‘Interests’ listed just below a user’s Expertise.

Experts123 users have always had the opportunity to follow their interests, and if you don’t already, you should start. On each individual topic page, in the upper right hand corner, you will find a green button labeled ‘Follow Topic.’ You can follow as many topics as you want and the top articles in each topic will appear in the ‘Following’ tab on your user profile.

This is a great way to keep track of the newest articles in the topics you are most interested in without searching keywords each time you log in.

Welcome to the new and improved Experts123 Blog.

We know, this blog isn’t new at all actually, and many of you have been here before, but today marks a change in theme and topic.

Previously this space has been reserved for articles and pieces written by the Experts123 team that didn’t make it to the Experts site. We are now shifting the focus of this blog to keeping users up to date with the developments and changes being made to the site.

As the Experts123 site continues to evolve, we realize that it is important to keep users up to date with what changes are being made and why we are making them. We want users to have a better understanding of our mission and what we are trying to accomplish. We are currently testing new features for the site that will be released in the coming weeks, so keep your eyes peeled, and don’t forget to provide us with feedback.

You can reach our team anytime at customerservice@experts123.com.
