PSA Announcement

•April 8, 2012 • Leave a Comment

We have recently been getting comments about how empty this site is. Samton Network is not charity. As in, in order to benefit from Samton Network, you must contribute to the network. In order to recieve friend requests, you must send friend requests. In order to recieve messages, you must send messages to other members. When you join this site, in order to start becoming a part of the site, you must involve yourself in the site. We have added apps including Instant Messaging, Direct Messaging, and Friend Requests so that it is easier for you to become a part of the [hence] network. Start involving yourself into Samton Network, so you can be involved in Samton Network. Do you understand the logic? You shouldn’t rely on Admins to add updates, and then take advantage of the updates, ignoring the site the next day. I’ll repeat again, contribute to the network, to benefit from the network.

Samton Graffiti: A New Form of Notes

•January 29, 2012 • Leave a Comment

Samton Network recently emailed us about a BETA testing that will be scheduled today, January 29th, 2012. Samton Network announces that Graffiti™ of Samton Network is going BETA this week. The new idea was formed by Solange Wright, developed by Webmasters and a few admins. 

“It’s one of the most interesting concepts I’ve ever developed, I’m extremely excited for it to go BETA.” comments Solange Wright.

For those who aren’t as tech savvy as others,  BETA means that it is being released for testing. It’s a common software term.

The app will be promoted on the website, and will also be endorsed on the Podcast, Blog, and Email Blasting. The focus is to make sure everyone tries it out, and then receive feedback.

What is Samton Graffiti? Let’s break it down:

Samton Graffti is a wiki where everyone adds any content they want, add photos, pictures, links, videos, and comments. It’s a new and more connected way of blogging. The point is for everyone to become connected with each other, through Graffiti.

“When someone adds a thread, or a graffito, then someone can respond to that graffito. As long as you focus on the protocol, which is adding your name, and date. It makes it easier.”

The style of formatting also makes security even better, adds Solange Wright. According to her, if someone puts inappropiate content on Graffiti, anyone can delete content.

“And once we meet our 2GB limit, we recycle the entire forum, and all content goes in the trash. The only problem with Graffiti is that anyone can delete your content, so make sure that you use Graffiti responsibly and post simple things. No specific information, or details. It’s an anonymous blog. It’s anyone’s call.” She finally states.

Save The Internet: Tell Congress NO!

•January 22, 2012 • Leave a Comment

Internet Censorship is coming to America. Similar to China’s way of internet, congress is thinking of blocking popular sites, including Google, Twitter, Facebook, and that could includes websites like Samton. Samton could disappear in the vast crevice of the universe. Result could be the tragic end of the internet and the digital media era.

How to help? Sign the petition on, and Tell Congress NO!

Samton Network Cyber Bullying Problems

•December 29, 2011 • Leave a Comment

Samton Network is almost 3 years old, and we have had a few cases of Harrasment, Cyber Bullying online. This week, a member (Name protected for identity) was sending inappropiate comments to members around the entire site. It alarmed WebMasters, giving a real reality check on the site.

This inspired us to be more safe next year, because we realize we have done everything we could have, it’s the responsibility of the Samton member and the guardian to delete those comments, and report a member.

The incident lead members to create a new and updated ‘Report a Member’ form, and to make sure that it works efficiently, and make it an effective tool for security.

Samton Network has learned from the incident, and it made website members understand the importance of network security.
