We took a look at our current writing platform and decided it was better to revamp some things about it. We elected to remove some features we deemed "unnecessary" and chose to stick to our original plan for the community.
From now on, members will have the ability to sign up and update their user profile page, write articles, blogs, news, etc and share or read others' and comment. We feel that having the ability to update statuses and send messages to each other really is a necessary tool for what the community is about. It's about togetherness. Creating works and sharing so that others can comment and help us improve and grow.
In closing, stay focused, stay positive, stay creating. It's who we are and what we've grown into.
The main goal of this project was to build a social networking site solely based upon joining plant workers from around the world together all in one place. We built in the many features needed specifically to help plant workers connect and share information, job listings, stories and tools or equipment available for sale. Plantworker.com gained over 700 members within it's first 6 weeks of public existence...and it's still growing at a rapid pace.
