Hi everyone,

You’ve already learned about the next phase of the FanBox revolution, the transition into the public alpha of empowr.com, and how empowr is better than FanBox.

Now the time has come to announce the process and timeline of when you will be able to transfer your FanBox account over to empowr!

 

Who gets to join empowr first?

The great news is that because you have all been part of the “alpha stage” of our development, you will all get to test empowr.com before it is opened up to the public!

Beginning today, the most experienced users, our Success Coaches, will be the first to be invited to empowr so they can test the site and give us their feedback. Once they have successfully moved, the top Power Users will be let in one level at a time: Red Star Power Users will be the first level to join, followed by 2nd degree Red Power Users and so on. Finally regular non-Power Users will be invited over.

As each new level opens up, I will be posting announcements on FanBox so that you are all aware of the progress that is being made.

Once you have all transferred to empowr, the community will be opened up to the world so that anyone can join!

 

What Happens Next?

When it’s your turn to join empowr, you will be shown a pop-up window with an invitation to move to empowr.

By accepting the invitation, your FanBox account and everything in it (profile, content, balance, etc.) will automatically be transferred to your new empowr account.

From there, as one of the first citizens of empowr, you will have first access to creating your own vanity URL to something a bit easier for you to remember; for example: empowr.com/PresidentMartin

You can do this simply by changing your username in your empowr account settings.

Just click “Edit account info”:

Type in your username:

Enter your current password, and press “Save”:

During the switch

FanBox and empowr will be linked to each other during the switch, which is why you will easily be able to make the move.

If you need to return to FanBox for any reason, just choose “Switch to FanBox” in the drop-down menu:

 

empowr yourself!

 

And to get back to empowr, the procedure is the same. Click “Account” on any page, and select “Switch to empowr”:

empowr yourself!

 

When you post content on empowr, it will be shown to your friends and fans whether they have joined empowr or are still waiting on FanBox.

You will still be able to talk with your Success Coach during the move, and there will be no disruption to your experience on the platform.

 

 

What if I am not online when it is my turn to move?

Don’t worry! FanBox will remain an active website for a limited time so that all active users will have the opportunity to accept the invitation. The next time you login, you’ll have the ability to join empowr.

 

$20 reward for finding and reporting bugs!

Because empowr is brand new, it is highly likely that there will be bugs that need ironing out when you first join. To expedite this process, empowr is offering a $20 bounty to anyone who first reports a bug or issue that needs to be resolved.

To qualify for this bounty, please report the issue as a comment in this post and include the following details:

  • Explain what the bug is – how you expect the feature/page to operate and how it is currently operating
  • Screenshots of the bug – you can use a free app called Lightshot to make screenshots that can be uploaded to the web… just visit http://prntscr.com to get it. This post is a guide to using the Lightshot app: http://posts.fanbox.com/8d446
  • The page URL where the bug is occurring
  • Replication steps – what steps you took right up to the moment you experience the issue.

The first person who reported it will receive $20.

When you are satisfied that any bugs have been fixed, we will start to open empowr up to the general public!

 

I could keep talking to you about the exciting improvements that you will find when you import your FanBox account to empowr, but that will slow you down from discovering it for yourself! So when you get the invitation, accept it, and I will see you on the other side!

 

I’ll be with you every step of the way, so let me know if you have any questions!http://fbstatic.fanbox.com/abcdo/TinyMce/plugins/premiuminator/img/trans.gif

PS.I think at first, may be invited including those who have posted comments about Empowr in the last three presidential ads because they are most interested, active and communicative.And they are no more than approx. 300.

Hi Iulia and MD.
I explained the reason for letting SCs in first, and all active users will be invited in the next few days. It makes no difference what order you are invited across, but one of the benefits that higher Power Levels pay for is the privilege to test new updates first.
I suggest that you increase your power level if you want to be invited sooner.

Kass, if you see this happening in your FanBox balanec, please contact your Success Coach so they can investigate for you.

Bob, as I explained earlier today, the team identified an issue with the balance page and are working to resolve this ASAP.

Hi Edrisa,
I have explained the reasons why current Success Coaches are the first users to explore the new site.
If you want to switch sooner, you can always upgrade your Power Level from Basic Orange
