Everybody talks about the weather - but we're doing something about it

Weather
August 9, 2017

We just dropped in some weather widgets on the site - you'll see one on the right hand side of the front page. These are IP-enabled weather widgets, so they will show you the weather in whatever location the internet gods decide you are in when looking at the site.  If the gods are wrong, just tell it where you want it to look.  If you click on the little Willy Weather logo on the bottom you'll be taken to a full-page weather forecast with radar, etc.

I am happy to announce that Wis.Community has received a grant from the Save The Hills Alliance to develop the Environment section of the site and do more environmental work. We thank STHA for their interest and trust.  There will be more about this as this new partnership progresses.  

Small Site Updates - experimenting with importing events from Meetup

May 17, 2017

For those of you who use the Meetup app to schedule events, we're working on importing events from Meetup. This is working fairly well, and we just imported the first batch. Basically this is based on Meetup's rules for what is an "active" Meetup event, which means that the meetup needs to have members and at least 3 people signed up to go to the event.

The Big Share

The Big Share: March 7, 2017

March 6, 2017

Tomorrow is the day of The Big Share in Wisconsin. You get an opportunity for one day to make investments in the Wisconsin community by donating to nonprofits and other worthy organizations in the state. It's easy - go to the Big Share Website and make your contributions on-line. Many of the organizations have matching shares, so for many of them donating tomorrow will multiply your charitable giving.

I want to say a few words about the events calendar. This is one of the core parts of this site, and I would love to see us get more events.

Wis.community grows

January 7, 2017

Lots of site improvements are going on at Wis.community for the new year. The site now has a membership option, where you can voluntarily make a contribution to help us grow.  There are memberships starting at $10 for an individual - currently the only perk on the site is that members of any type will have most of the ads on the site disappear when they are logged in. More perks are coming, including some nice additions for members who are nonprofits or businesses.

The plan - 2017

Wiscommunity
January 2, 2017

For those of you who have been following along, I'd like to point out a few new ideas and plans for 2017.  Some of them are ambitious.  Some of them may not happen. But I thought I'd let you know what I'm thinking:

Wis.community Memberships

December 26, 2016

We are now set up so that you can contribute to the growth and development of Wis.community. Y, and pay with Paypal, check, or with a credit card. Money from memberships will be used to help defray the cost of the site - and we're also working on some new benefits that you will get with a membership.

New Training Videos

December 23, 2016

We now have some to learn how to better use Wis.Community.  I'm just getting started on creating these - not that this is a playlist player, so you can either watch them all, or pick a selected one with the drop-down menu at the top left corner.
