A short trip down memory lane…
Hello WAYNers, hope you are all having a smashing week!
Here at WAYN HQ, we’re still all guns blazing with the updated site and making sure it works exactly how it’s supposed to.
Most of you would of course be aware of the site improvements we’ve launched in the last week; but something we are especially excited about is the ‘WAYN popularity meter’
The meter has a simple yet powerful function: to measure the popularity of each member and assign a ‘popularity status’ (Low, Medium, High or Hot) depending on that member’s interaction with others and his/her overall activity on WAYN. It therefore has the specific goals of ensuring, 1) you know the most popular people on WAYN and, 2) you meet as many people as possible, because the higher your popularity status is, the more people will see your profile when they search for others to interact with. So check out the Popularity Page and get your popularity meter boiling over!
And we continue our refinements to the Destinations and Activities pages. As you all well know, WAYN’s mission is to be able to connect its members to others who share their dream destinations and activities. The latest improvements to the pages (see below) take us a step closer to this goal and with more improvements on the way, its certain there’ll be no better way to share your passions and dreams with others
Of course we’re always open to incorporating new ideas, so if there’s something you think will work great on the site, outline it in an email to email@example.com. Our product development team are not one to shirk from a challenge!
Speaking of challenges, this most recent site upgrade has reminded us of the many (MANY!) challenges that have come our way since we started in 2002. It certainly does seem like it was ages ago when it was just the three of us, WAYN HQ was the basement of Mike’s house, and the site looked like this:
Anyone remember seeing that as their homepage? You’d certainly have to agree that WAYN has come some way since then
And speaking of going some way, just as WAYN has ‘grown up’, its founders have too!

My, haven’t we grown! Pete especially will be aware of this fact as he faces up to another of life’s challenges later this year… marriage!
Think that’s enough nostalgia for one blog entry! Now back to work
