New in daylo
Version 2 offers many new tools and features, making Daylo easier and more rewarding:
Here's what you'll find in this latest release, dated December 4, 2005.
Email alert preferences
Specify what kinds of activity you want to receive email about. Live chat
Now, when you want to communicate with anyone else on Daylo, invite them into a Daylo 'Conversation.' Conversations provide the functionality of real-time, one-on-one chat with other members and include easy tools to assist you in reaching a Handshake and getting the most out of your connection.
Conversation scheduling tools
Conversations are equipped with a 'whengine' scheduling tool to help you find an agreeable time for the services to happen.
The new Daylo 'localizer' allows you set your location by entering a US town, city, neighborhood, or even a landmark, and fine-tune from there.
Search full-text and/or search tags. Search within a chosen distance from your location, or search everywhere, or find people who will come to you.
Filter your search results
Filter all searches with any combination of flags including 'for pay', 'volunteer', 'barter', 'erotic', and/or 'lessons & instruction'. Tags
Tags are keywords, or labels, that you can add to your Profiles and Requests to give them meaning, and to help others to find you. With tagging, you are empowered to choose how you're identified. This 'folksonomy' allows you, the community, to practice collaborative categorization, using your chosen keywords in your own language. .
Keep an eye on other people's Daylo posts by adding them to your Request and Profile 'Watchlists..
Matching Profiles when you post a Request
Now, when you post a Request, we'll tell you about nearby matching service providers, for as long as your Request is active. As always, we notify matching service-providers of your Request when you post it, too.
Improved RSS feeds
Now, it's easier than ever to add RSS feeds about new activity on Daylo to your favorite reader client. Look for the clear, step by step instructions when you click on the unique RSS button for each page.
Who We Are page
Where you learn that we're not a behemoth corporation, but six friends, in a basement, in Brooklyn, wanting to enable skilled people everywhere to do what they love for a living. So, read a bit about who we are, if you like. Or just look at the pretty pictures.
We call it the 'exploded nav' everything you need is one click away from the top of every page.
Now, if a photo original is larger than the displayed version, click on it to see it in its full glory. The new Daylo Conversations accomodate photos, too. Here are some features we're working on which you can look forward to, soon: Multimedia Galleries
