MySpace Update

Follow-up to MySpace – 100th Friend from For blog's sake

Profile views: 1645

Our comments seem to be picking up now. The common theme seems to be students trying to make contact with other students studying a particular subject or living in a particular halls of residence.

The trouble is that people can post comments on the Warwick page, but if it is directed at other friends i.e. other freshers, the only way they can reply is:
  • Post a comment back – which would result in a massive list of comments; or
  • Add the person they want to speak to as a friend and then comment on that persons page – taking the discussion away from the Warwick page.

There isn’t a facility for forum chats which I think is greatly missed on myspace. Can anyone suggest a way that I might improve discussion between ‘friends’ on the university myspace page?

I am attending a webinar tonight which is primarily about graduates associations and how they can use myspace and facebook to maintain a dialogue with young alumni and involve graduates in the alumni association. Maybe I will find the answer there?

MySpace – 100th Friend

Follow-up to MySpace Update from For blog's sake

Hooray – I have just approved our 100th friend on MySpace.

The page was created on 22nd August ‘06 so for just 24 days I don’t think that is bad going.

Thats (roughly) 51 profile views and 4 (and a bit) friends a day!

N.B. I haven’t added anybody as our friend, that is just from other people adding us as a friend.

CSS training

Follow-up to A fun day out… hmmm from For blog's sake

Just for continuity purposes, I suppose I should mention what else I learnt on my Netskills training course yesterday…

Positioning with CSS

Page Flow
Positioning: Static, Relative, Absolute, Fixed
Stacking Order

Alternate Layouts, Standards and Browser Issues

Why use CSS?
Alternate Layouts
Media-specific Styles
Standards and Validation
Browser Issues

To be honest, I had kind of turned my brain off by the last session – my head was starting to hurt!!

However, all in all it was a very useful day, I wasn’t as confused as I expected to be, a lot of it was actually rather interesting, the practical tasks were kind of fun and I was rather impressed by what could be achieved with CSS.

A fun day out… hmmm

Well I am currently on a CSS course at Nottingham University.

It’s actually not as tricky as I thought it would be given my knowledge of html is very basic.

So far we have learnt…

The Basics

Internal Style Sheets
External Style Sheets
CSS for Colours and Fonts
< div > and < span > tags
Using Classes
Using ID

The Box Model

Width and Centering
More stuff about Boxes…

And now we are about to have lunch… phew!

Gah – maybe it is tricker than I thought… just writing what we have done here started to affect my formatting!

You can’t go throwing < div > and < span > tags around!

About me

My name is Ellie Lovell and I am the Web Editor in the Communications Office at the University of Warwick.

I started this blog in August 2005 when I started working at the University and have learnt a lot from it. I don’t update it so much anymore (I have been unfaithful to WarwickBlogs) but I hope you enjoy what is here…
