Your Profile and the Community

You're not alone in the App - besides entering new posts on the map, there's an entire community that welcomes you! Many functions are available to interact with the other participants. Your Profile & the Community By clicking on your profile picture at the top right, you access your user profile. Your user profile consists of the list of notifications from the App, an overview of your posts, your badges, and your profile, which you can edit with the pen icon. You can switch between the individual areas via the icons at the top right or by swiping in the panel. If you keep scrolling, you will still find lists of users you follow and follow you. Notifications (Newsfeed) The central view is the notifications that summarise all activities and news from your Friends network and the project chronologically. Here you will find the latest new spots from users you follow in the App, comments on your own posts or replies to your comments in other spots, news that the project has sent to all users or notifications about your posts such as likes and content corrections by moderators. Your Spot Collection The second panel provides a collection of your own posts in the App. Badges By being active in the App, you can collect a variety of funny badges. After creating your first spot, you will find a little thank you for participating. Public Profile You can provide additional information about you, your background, motivation, and equipment to your account. These are optional and will be displayed to other people in the app to help your friends find you on the SPOTTERON platform and connect with you. More Panels If you scroll further to the right (swipe), you will get to the overview pages of the users you follow on the platform and those who follow you. You can use the Button sequences to link yourself to other users.  
In the App, you can interact with other users. Each project on the SPOTTERON platform includes a user community, and you have a variety of interaction options at your disposal. Liking Spots and Comments  In the posts of the other users: inside the App, you will find a heart above. If you like a post by a user or a user, you can mark it with a heart (liken). The author of the spot will get a notification. Next to the heart is a number that shows how many times different users have liked the post: You can also like individual comments with the heart button in the comments that are under an entry. Commenting on Spots  In the detail-view of other entries, you can comment on the respective spot and share your thoughts, make correction suggestions, or even ask questions if you need help. Each comment has a time log, and you can express your appreciation (like) by clicking on the heart icon. The comments are publicly visible and should not be used for private conversations. Please always be polite and follow the netiquette and community guidelines of the Terms of Use! Share Entries The Share feature allows you to share entries on social media and smartphone apps with many other apps such as messengers and note apps. If you share entries on other platforms, you are actively helping to promote the project and the App to your friends! With the share button, you can also use the direct link to an entry, and you can send the link with any medium, e.g. e-mail. Follow /unfollow users.  To avoid missing new entries from certain users, you can follow them: click on the profile picture or the name in an entry to go to the user's profile. There, you can click on "follow" to connect with them. The user gets a notification, and he or she may follow you back.…
