Who’s Calling The Shots on ActiveRain – The New “Called Shots” Feature


I think I need some badges.

Via Brad Andersohn ~ Community Manager (ActiveRain):

We have a new feature which I’m sure many of you have already noticed on your “MY HOME” pages. 

Since we released the new “SUGGEST” for feature button, we’ve been getting a really good response from members helping us to find and report suggested content for the ActiveRain Feature Board.  You’ll notice today that we’ve placed a new metric “CALLED SHOTS” counter in the status area of each members “my home” page. This little tracker tool will tally a total of how many posts you suggest that actually get featured.

Calling a shot simply means you’ve selected a post by another member that you feel should be featured

To do this, you would have to have clicked on the “SUGGEST” button in the upper right corner of their blog post.  If you suggest a members Blog post to be featured, and it is selected, then you will have “Called The Shot” and get the kudos.  When a member accumulates enough “Called Shots” they’ll earn a new badge.

In order to prevent gaming, members may only suggest a maximum of 5 posts per day, so be careful calling your shots, don’t waste them, we may have some additional surprises and rewards for those members “calling the most shots” around here. 

Thank you for helping us keep the network growing and for keeping the community fun!  Your support in suggesting features has been awesome, and is making a huge difference for our moderators and for the variety and quality of content that our visitors and traffic are being exposed to while visiting ActiveRain.

About susanmorrison

After living in Walpole, MA for many years, our family was transferred to the west coast when I was a senior in high school. In 1983, I graduated from Mission San Jose High School in Fremont, California. I am also a 1987 graduate of Providence College with a major in liberal arts and a minor in business administration. I bring to the table many years of sales experience beginning with thirteen years in Corporate Sales at Delta Air Lines. I'm the mother of three children and I'm very active within the Franklin, MA community. I am also a cancer survivor and support the American Cancer Society Charities.

My husband and I have built five homes and I've lived in a variety of other locations including Toronto Canada, Irving Texas and my current home in Franklin, MA. As a result of all my moving around, I came to the conclusion that I was an expert at moving...why not become an expert on the other side of the table? I earned my real estate license in 2004 and believe that I have found my true niche'. I can empathize with my clients on a variety of levels; whether they are buying or selling. And, like so many other good realtors out there, I believe that possessing good communication skills is one of the many keys to success.
