As most of you know, over the course of the past month, SlopeTalk has gone from a totally dead and abandoned project to a resurrected product that is a super-cool new way to communicate. I wanted to mention some of the things we’re working on behind the scenes (in between fixing new problems we have created):

  • Polls whose results automatically update in front of your eyes in real time;
  • Ability to paste graphics directly into comment entry;
  • Restoration of the Comments Search function;
  • Ability to right-click from list of users to get more features;
  • Ability to right-click from list of posts to learn more about them;
  • Be able to see who in the Users list is actively typing a message

With all due respect to the 0.03% of Slopers who are female, let’s face it, almost all the women who visit Slope are fake spam-bots. I know how sick and tired we all are of these newcomers (although the equity bears among us might want to take a look at those $96 per hour opportunities from home), but hopefully you’re going to be seeing a LOT fewer visits from these lovely lasses in days to come.
