Happy 1st Birthday EasySocial!

Happy 1st Birthday EasySocial!

Well, well, well... 

One year ago, Andrew announced the release of EasySocial 1.0. Time sure warped really quick around us; it's EasySocial's 1st birthday! We have been through a lot together; both the Stack Ideas team and our users. Without you guys, we are nothing but a bunch of Asian geeks trying to solve some math problems or play chess in some random park. 

I personally do admit that there are times when we were unable to deliver fully the stuff that we've planned but this, I assure you, is all due to our respect to our users. We do not want to release something which is half-baked and full of bugs. We want it to be shiny and spotless, without a single dent on it. 

Currently EasySocial is at version 1.3, with nearly 22000+ commits... and counting!

Updates 

Some of you might wonder on any updates that we have for the up-coming EasySocial release. I am not suppose to share everything that I know, but I managed to squeeze something out from the developers. How I squeeze it out of him is not important; so don't ask. :D

We are building a Nearby Event Listings, which means EasySocial can now detect any events nearby your location.

 Detecting any events nearby....

 ... Tadaaa! One event detected nearby! :) 

Apart from this, I was informed that we have an 'All Day Event' and 'Date Filter on Event Listings". These are all features that we'll be implementing on Events alone. Of course we're also developing Videos alongside EasySocial 1.4. :) 

Birthday Gift!

The truth is that we wouldn't be here without you guys. Hence, we want to share with you all some goodies. For our 1st anniversary, we're giving out a 20% discount code to both our new and renewal purchases. Why? Because we're welcoming new members to the EasySocial family AND we're celebrating the 1 year anniversary with our current ones. The coupon code is : 

 1EASYSOCIAL20

Don't forget to wish EasySocial a big, happy birthday on our Twitter and our Facebook! :) 

Edit: The coupon code is removed as it's already been two weeks since it's first released. Thank you for all of the support; we'll do whatever we can to provide the best component to our users. [edited on 28th of October 2014]

Yup, I'm surprise, too. Was checking out the dates and I stumbled upon the blog. Asked Mark "It's EasySocial 1st birthday?" and he said yes...

.. to which I respond "1 year, and you built all those features?"

He laughed. lol

Thanks Jan!

Happy birthday -) u' r the best and ES is wonderful. I like your job.

And my subs expired -(

 
  1. Ahmad Justin    Anastasia

Thank you Anastasia!

Eh? Your subscription expires? You can use the coupon code to renew any EasySocial purchases that you might have. If you're holding the EasySocial Advanced license and somehow the subscription failed, do write to us via our CRM (https://crm.stackideas.com) and mention my name in the subject, I'll personally investigate this issue and assist you with it.

Happy Birthday to EasySocial. One year of awesomeness! Excellent, but I think I missed the 20% discount code by one day. My EasySocial subscription was auto-renewed yesterday. :D

 
  1. Ahmad Justin    Randall McCallum

Randall! Thank you for the wishes. I thought you never wanted to wish us. :p

Well, if you're holding any subscriptions, your subscription is already applied a discount code so no fret, you'll always be getting a discount everytime you renew. :D

The new features in Events being added for 1.4 sound awesome. Constantly evolving EasySocial to be better and better with each new version throughout the year. That's the best Birthday present we can ask for.

Would be real nice to have the following features in Events for 1.4, just like the features in Eventful.com: :)

In Create Event:

Repeats? - with the following options: Does not repeat, Repeats Daily, Repeats Weekly, Repeats Monthly - Made available in dropdown menu.

Thank you for the idea, Randall. I've forwarded this to our dev team; I'll let them decide on this. If you ask me, I want them to be implemented but then again, the dev are the ones who have to think about the flow and logic behind it. :p

 
  1. Justin

I think the nearby event function is already active, at least with my version of 1.3.8 :)

Hi loic, thank you for the wish. :)

If you're holding an auto-subscription license, a coupon code has already been added to your renewal purchases regardlessly. :)

 
  1. Randall McCallum

Yes, my subscription auto-renewed yesterday and I was wondering if the coupon code would be available in my renewal case?

 
  1. Cris

Please, Please we need video feature!!!!!

 
  1. Ahmad Justin    Cris

Hi Cris, thank you for your comment. Yup, the dev are working on it as we speak. ;)

 
  1. Josh Lewis    Ahmad Justin

Why is Guest - Cris listed as me? Both the profile image and link to to my profile. :p

 
  1. Ahmad Justin    Josh Lewis

That's funny, that didn't happen on my end.

 
  1. Josh Lewis    Ahmad Justin

It probably selected me because I was the next commentor. ;) Looks like its resolved now.

Earlier this week I looked through the older blogs to see when ES turned one years old and figured there would be a celebration. :) I've been a fan of ES before it was released. ;)

Regarding the near by events: It makes more sense to not use a side bar filter but instead have the default say "Any Distance" for the distance drop down and then filter down to the distance from you. This will create less clicks, less filters, and allow for more specific searching. This way I could search for...

Hi Josh! Woah, a fan even before we release EasySocial! Thanks for the wish, buddy!

I've forwarded your idea to our developers and designers, they'll take it from here. :)

 
  1. Josh Lewis    Ahmad Justin

I knew the stacked team released quality extensions with top notch support. Before the release I saw some previews that looked inspiring, I could be pretty sure based on what the stacked team has made before that it was going to be promising. Once ES 1.1 came out I was pretty sure that ES is the treasure we had all been looking for. ES 1.3 made it a certainty. ;)

 
  1. Steve

Happy birthday ES ;)

 
  1. Ahmad Justin    Steve

Thank you Steve. :)

The coupon code just expires few hours prior to your comment. :(
