myJU empowers JapanUpdate.com visitors

By: David Knickerbocker

Date Posted: 2003-08-30

Many great new improvements have been made on our website. For one thing, the autos and personals pages have been edited so that when a user posts an auto ad or personal profile, it will be online as soon as you submit it. Little bugs have been fixed in the forums and classifieds as well. However, the biggest improvement by far is that a new resource we affectionately call "myJU" has just been developed and is ready for use by you, our visitors.

But what does myJU do? Plain and simple, it keeps track of all of your transactions on JapanUpdate.com as well as your personals and the newly added profile page. The program has been called myJU becauseit will serve as a way to make JapanUpdate.com more centralized around our users and not just on the news. The Island Market Classifieds, Autos, Forums, and Personals have all become very popular programs in the last two years, and myJU was built to serve as an interface between our users and these resources. Once you are signed up and signed in, you will be able to track all of your ads and autos, edit and delete your own personals accounts, edit your own profile, and show the world your favorite websites by posting your favorite links. You can also include your own photograph or a picture of your choice in your profile page.

Though widely unused, the profiles pages are a new area on our website where you can get to know other visitors of the site. For the moment, to access the profile pages, you must use the forums (www.japanupdate.com/forums). If a registered myJU member posts a message in the forums, his name will show as a link in his or her message. If you click the link, you will be able to view that user's profile.

Some of you might be saying to yourself, "Why should I waste my time on myJU? I've been posting classifieds messages for two years without any problem." Well, from now on, everytime you decide to post a classified ad, auto, personal, or forum message, you should log in, because by doing so, myJU will keep track of all of your transactions and they will be displayed in your myJU account whenever you log in. Then, you will be able to take any action on your ads that you decide rather than waiting on the webmaster. By empowering our users to help themselves, our webmaster will be free to continue developing new resources for the website rather than struggling with busy-work. However, if you place a classifieds ad, auto, personal, or forum message without logging in, these will not be added to your account and you will have no control over them. So remember--Sign up and sign in!

If you would like to join as a myJU member, go to www.japanupdate.com/myJU. Click the link that says, "Click here to sign up." Then, choose a username, password, and type your email address. After clicking the sign in button, your account will be added. How's that for quick and painless?!

In the future, we will continue to add more improvements to all of the resources we currently have online, especially myJU. Soon, we hope to develop an improved system for accessing our website on mobile phones and PDAs as well as create an auction system for our website. We've got a lot of work cut out for ourselves, so please be patient. Drop by the website on a regular basis to watch these improvements unfold. Also, if you find any bugs or errors on the new myJU, please don't hesitate to email the webmaster at webmaster@japanupdate.com. Check out myJU at www.japanupdate.com/myJU.
