Bonanzle Gears up Protecting the community

This week Bonanzle added even more security measures to protect the community, sellers and buyers alike.

The "What's new changelist" talked about the following site enhancements.

a;) Added more advanced detection mechanisms to catch previously suspended sellers signing up.
b:) Added detection of unusual transaction patterns to analyze for potential fraud.
c:) Censored users can't interact at roundtable.

Protecting the Bonanzle selling community against potential fraud is of utmost importance. The Baby Daddy of Bonanzle, Bill Harding is keeping pace by continually tweaking the system security.

Way to go Bonanzle!

Bonanzle Announces an Addition to Tech Support Team

Bonanzle is growing at such a rapid pace. And as the user base expands so does the demand for support. In answer to the increasing user, Bill announced March 12, 2010a new addition to the Bonanzle tech team, Elizabeth of ANightOwl

Elizabeth joined Bonanzle October of 2008 and is very active on the Bonanzle forums as well as running a successful Bonanzle booth.

According to Bill,

"Elizabeth's initial responsibilities will be helping to approve and improve our item traits, monitoring and enforcing payments, and keeping an eye on site help comments and images submitted for the category page. We also plan to have her dabble in support and other community maintenance tasks as needed."

Elizabeth will start out part-time as Tom did.. Yeah right! With the rapidly increasing Bonanzle user base, I suspect Elizabeth will quickly be seen frequently in the "support" role. So start sending in those emails to see if you can catch one with Elizabeths' name!

A hearty congratulations to you Elizabeth!! No wonder you were walking around for days smiling. what a honor indeed! Welcome aboard!

Bonanzle and the Switchboard

Bill, the Baby Daddy of Bonanzle, has been hard at work programming a really neat feature called the Switchboard.

The Bonanzle switchboard is a ribbon or strip that resides along the lower portion of the browser. The purpose of the switchboard is to group all notifications, quick text messages and other activities into one spot for easier management. For those sellers who have ever lost a quick text message, forgot about a Bonanza or could not remember where that special something was you looked at an hour ago is located, well you will love the switchboard.

For screenshots of the new feature, check the Bonanzle Boardroom out.

Or better yet, checkout your Bonanzle booth Account Settings > Other Options page!
