Yes, Sprummer is a word! The transition period between Spring and Summer. There are two updates to the site to mention this Sprummer.
We have a new profile field for orientation, this is to help users with their searches. It is a non-mandatory field, found under Home and family, so I would encourage members to edit their profiles to update it. This may also be a good opportunity to give your profile a Sprummer clean if you are only just logging back in after the Winter. Make sure your profile descriptions are up-to-date and maybe add some current pictures.
We have a New members tab now where you will find members listed by join date. This tab can be found along the top menu bar.
Here are just a few of the crewing and sailing events currently on the site:
We are excited to announce that the new Lovesail platform has been up and running for a few weeks now. I think you will agree it is a vast improvement on the last platform in many ways. We no longer have two versions of the site (desktop and mobile). We have just one version which runs on a responsive platform. This means the site will change its size and layout according to the device or screen you are using. Google, as part of their search engine algorithms, place great importance on a website being user-friendly on a mobile device so it is imperative that a website is “mobile-friendly” now. We feel that the new responsive design is more aesthetically pleasing with better functionality, as well as being more intuitive and easier to navigate.
CLASSIFIED SECTION We now have a classified section listing items for sale. There are sections for boats, boat parts, other sailing paraphernalia, general items for sale and also a Sailing Appointments/Jobs section to advertise paid positions.
CREWING AND SAILING EVENTS The Crewing and Sailing Events section will now enable not just crewing posts to be listed but also sailing events such as boat shows, regattas and races. If you know of an event near you and would like to publicize it then please do post it in this section.
Lastly, I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank you, the members, for your continued support and also for all the positive comments that you have sent in regarding the new site. As always if you have any queries then you can contact me via the contact form at the bottom of any Lovesail page or the private message facility on the site.
