Idea for new 13skills.com feature: friends or team
« on: December 06, 2012, 11:43:59 PM »
Would it be possible to add the capability to add members as friends or become part of a team so that you can see each others' skills and possibly work on them together?

If not, something else that would work would be the ability to tag a member as a favorite and then you can access all your favorites from you account settings.

Thanks for the work you do with the podcast, this site and the overall community.

+1 for this idea.   I was looking over my account settings and thought the same thing.   With so many members, and more each day, it would be nice to be able to track progress of members we know and team up with.

I had the same thought - I have talked a number of non-TSP folks to sign up, and it would be nice to have a way to see them, and for them to see me easily.

I imagine as 13-in-13 goes on, we all might make new friends as we find kindred spirits from around the world

This was my first thought when signing up. I want to "follow" certain people's progress and be able to seek out "mentors"

I agree. I have plenty of experience in a few of the categories and would be willing to share info, if anyone wanted. In other categories, that I have selected to work on for this year, I would love the companionship of learning along side other newbies or to have the occasional experienced person drop by to offer insight and encouragement.

Yes!  Alternatievly, maybe some way of linking or favoriting a person and then following sort of like twitter.  It would be very good to follow someone learning the same skills, particularly if the person is blogging/writing/posting information about their journey in perfecting a particular skill. 

Another good idea would be to create a section for members to list blog or thread links for each skill.  Since the system is already set up for that, a way for people to search for others developing the skill and using the links feature would be useful.
