If you didn’t have a chance to read this morning’s announcement of the new ASK.BME staff, you should take a quick look. In addition to adding new ASK staff, we’ve been cranking along turning out new fixes and features to IAM as well as tweaking various pages so they’re more in line with the old IAM. More changes are coming and we’re hoping that by the end of the summer we’ll have all of the new things we’ve been busy working on behind the scenes completed! It’s been a huge project that has spanned several years but we’re finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Thank you to everyone who has been patient and understanding while we work to bring BME up to par with the rest of the advances that the internet has seen come to light!
Feel free to send in some questions! To celebrate the addition of new ASK.BME, We’ve added 3 months to all IAM account expiration dates which should add 3 months to everyone’s accounts that are already active as well as making any expired IAM accounts accessible again! So if you had an IAM account in the past and it’s expired, now is the time to come back and check out all the changes for yourself.
Now one of the biggest requests we’ve had over the past year has been to bring back the system that allowed you to send in your photos by e-mail. Well we listened, and you can once again send in your photos. To do so, simply e-mail the images to firstname.lastname@example.org. When you send photos to that address, they’ll appear in the media section of your BME profile. From there you’ll be able to tag your images so they can be published in the appropriate galleries. And remember, uploading images lets you have a free membership. Check out the BME FAQ for all the details regarding free memberships, as well as paid subscriptions.
Finally, once you start e-mailing in your photos, check out the leaderboards to see where you stand. Every year we give away prizes to the top contributors, so make this the year you get a prize!
