Redesigned Latest Activity Feature

We’ve rearchitected the back-end and updated the design and detail of activity items to make this feature even more compelling.

New Latest Activity will utilize a brand-new set of icons, which we’re rolling out across TINC. Latest Activity feeds on profile pages, which previously had no icons or avatars, now have the same icon set shown on the Main page of TINC.

New Settings Options

In this release, you’ll find an expanded set of privacy options on your Settings page. Using these settings, you’ll have more modular, precise control over which notifications you do and don’t receive.

Members will now also have the ability to decide whether to show their birthday, their birthday and age, or neither. Members who have left “Don’t display my age” checked in their settings will continue to have their age hidden, but they will now appear in your social network’s birthday feature.

New Chat - February 20th

We’ve retained all the great features you have on chat today, such as private chats, and are adding the following new features in this next version:

Chat will be persistent on every page of TINC. With this new release, chat will become a bar across the bottom of every page of your social network (see screenshots after the jump). It will start in “bar mode” and will expand into “window mode”. It will have a simple, consistent look across the social networks.

You will be able to pop chat out of TINC and keep it open as its own window. This is something many of you asked for and we’re happy to provide it in this next version.

Sound notifications when messages are received. Notifications start OFF by default, but can be turned on through the options menu.

Members will appear online more accurately. Because chat is now persistent across all pages on your social network, members will be displayed as online more accurately. However, there will still be the option for a member to make themselves invisible, if they choose.

Reconnections will be more graceful. When a connection to the server is lost for some reason, chat will attempt to reconnect gracefully without requiring a page refresh, and if possible without affecting the member. There will be no more need to reload the page entirely and lose all your messages.

Chat will now load the entire scrollable list of people online. No more clicking on ‘More’!. As a result, search will now be faster too.

Better support for firewalls. This new version uses only port 80, the standard HTTP port.

There will be local message history. Your chat client will now remember the last ten messages sent and allows to look at them by pressing Ctrl+UP and Ctrl+DOWN (arrow keys).

Chat will now be in Flash. This means that you need to have a minimum of Flash 9 on your computer. You likely already have Flash 9 and, if not, we’ll have instructions for how to add it.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
