  • happy new ostomy year! - blogs_blog_79 - Ostomyland Community
    happy for my new life with my ostomy but I still don t feel comfortable telling about my ostomy to others One thing I really wish is going to the pole but I don t feel ready showering among non ostomates It s so expensive this pool activity so on the positive side I save some money Before my surgery I was scared that I would end up as a person receiving sickness benefits for the rest of my life Ok if nothing could be than I ve had to accept that but if something could be done it just feels like a waste of money for a person who just wants to work Some of the things that I still struggle with are my blockage from time to time It has been difficult knowing what sorts of food that giving me the most problems and how much I can eat with some of that food I m also not used to small meals I tend to over eat and that s a big challenge I have to face I often think about some of my friends in this situation One of my friends is going blind there s nothing anyone can do Another friend is going deaf The only thing that can help her is a cochlear implant but it s so expensive that according to the rules she ll have to be totally deaf on both ears then she have to stand on a waiting list for four years If she lived in the US her insurance would cover it but she doesn t have all that money to go to the US for this surgery It puts my life in perspective I know they would rather have a colostomy instead of going blind or deaf So I

  • Ostomyland - State of the Community - Ostomyland Community
    Healthcare who s products particularly impressed me personally after trying their samples The biggest bug bear that I have with the main site at the moment is that it s on a separate server to the forums and more importantly doesnt have the forums built in to it I ve been looking at lots of portal add ons for the board which would allow me to integrate the main site content on to pages within the board s package but sadly either the software was utterly confusing to use or just didnt do the job well enough and so look terrible I ll keep looking The Ostomyland Wiki The wiki had a large over haul just before the launch of the last SOTC post and since then it s pretty much sat there and done it s job Because I ve been working on other sections of the community I ve not had the chance to do any major content additions in it but it s on the cards as theres still so many pages we could write On the software side of things I d really like to change the Wikkia software to something else more industry standard such as Media Wiki Whilst I love the simplicity of Wikkia and it s overall look and feel I find it very frustrating that it has no in built spam prevention measures such as Captcha random letter entry confirmation for comments and registrations Over the last two months especially the wiki has been victim to a lot of automatic spam bot spamming where a bot has managed to register an account and leave comments behind After trying the only two captcha plugins community authored for Wikkia and seeing that they didnt work we ve been left with no option but to disable user registrations and lock all pages to comments That does kind of defeat the object of a Wiki but considering that so far not one person aside from Kathy or myself have joined in with the Wiki s creation process it s no major loss to the wiki or the site as a whole Wikkia does have a v2 update planned for release late this year or early 2012 so I ll give that a try then and see how things goes Spam prevention measures are promised for v2 so I can but hope the dev s deliver on that promise All that aside Im still pleased with the Wiki project I believe we re still the only Ostomy wiki on the net but I ve not looked lately so I may be incorrect thinking that But whether thats the case or not I m still pleased with the 250 pages of ostomy and bowel related content we have on there and it makes a nice little side salad to the community forums website main meal and serves its purpose well Ostomyland Conferences Events Late last year we got our first ever table at an industry event As mentioned earlier in this post thanks to Julie B and the CA we were part of their industry open day and it gaves us a great opportunity to raise the community s awareness of our website and brand Despite the fact we ve been online 13 years now there s many people who do not know of us and what we do Considering our table had to be designed sourced created and delivered in a little over a week I could not have been more pleased with the look we achieved Our new GM Sarah was at the event as was Kathy and they got a taste for it or maybe for the free sweeties who can tell So keep an eye out in the near future for more announcements about events we ll be attending as this is part of the Oland project that we really want to investigate further and hopefully it will help the community grow further still In the Works for Ostomyland Once the chat s relaunch is out of the way the immediate to do planner will be clear again However that doesn t mean we havent got plans for the future Most of them I ve already discussed in this post such as the conference attendance plans However one plan I ve not really discussed yet and is very high up the list of things I would like to do for the site is the desire to have some form of standard contact procedure for people to ask us for tech or account help especially now that there s more management staff who will be working on this side of things The initial idea is a sort of ticket service If anyone has ever contacted a software company for tech support then if you weren t directed to a forum to post then chances are you created a ticket The benefits of a ticket is that all level appropriate staff are alerted to the tickets creation So lets say User A sends a ticket asking for help with tech support on the site then his ticket would be sent to me and Kathy If User B were to send a request for accounts help then the ticket would be sent to me Kathy and Sarah allowing any one of us to step in and answer the queries I m thinking that this would give everyone a single prominent dedicated place to go for help The ticket system would not be for ostomy support though As that is peer to peer all that would still need to go through the board to the community members as more than likely we the staff would see a huge increase in the amount of queries we had to deal with personally and chances are we might not have the personal experience required to help that say another member might have So that s one thing I m keen to try and implement in a way to improve the user s experience of Ostomyland should they ever require tech support on the site or account support or need to ask how to do something on the board Another project I need to work on is actually nothing to do with front of house stuff but is instead an updated FAQ section for forum mods and admins on how to do what on the board from the staff standpoint ie edit posts move posts or thread and rename threads warn spammers and so on A lot of this has changed since v3 2 was installed so all their files need updating too That will likely take priority over the ticket system project Then theres just the main site content to freshen up and the wiki to write a major update for and the new chat room to promote around the net again and well you get the picture We ve already done so much but there s just as much still to be done if not more

Jun 2010 Welcome to the Ostomyland State of Play June 2010 blog entry This is a run down of events achievements and feature updates changes launches for Ostomyland since the last entry in November 2009 and details our aims plans for Ostomyland in the coming months Contents 1 Introduction 2 The Community as a whole 3 The Message Board 4 The Chat Room 5 The Main Site 6 The Ostomyland wiki 7 In the Works for Oland 8 Main Site Stats 9 Main Site s Country of Visitors Percentage Stats 10 Board Stats 11 Records The Community as a whole During the six months since the last update a lot has happened in the Ostomyland community and network of sites the biggest being the celebration of our 12th birthday online and re launch of our Ostomy Wiki It also saw my nomination for Volunteer of the Year by the Ostomy Lifestyle UK charity and although I didn t win it brought immense satisfaction just know that people cared enough about Ostomyland and the work all the team put in in order to nominate me for this award I only wish it was the whole team who was nominated as they do as much as me on here Well most do not so sure about the Jules woman not much she can do here when on the Naughty Step all the time ah hem Back to serious mode The Message Board The message board and it s community have been ticking along nicely since the last update In fact a number of access and member records were repeatedly broken during the course of this six month period I m very pleased with the progress of the support boards Nearly all genuine support queries are being answered by numerous members within a very short period of time Having access to such a reliable and quick source of knowledgeable feedback is a very important part of some ostomates recovery from surgery and I cannot thank ALL our members enough for all they do to help and support both old and new members alike On the off topic community side of things we ve recently started an active campaign to help new members integrate better into our community events and forums with attempts at creating long running silly threads to encourage new members to post more in the community once they have their stoma concerns stabilised Examples of this are the silly Five Word Story and the My Day in Three Words threads Hopefully this and forthcoming off topic discussions and threads will help encourage members to post enough to gain entry into those elusive and secret 150 and 500 post count member clubs as well the hidden forums that accompany each club A member map was also recently introduced to the board allowing all members who wish to stick a pin in our virtual map powered by Google to show where they are from And of course you can also see where all other participating members are from too We ve also transferred our ostomy links resource over from the main site and over to the board All members over a 20 post count threshold are able to post their own links that they think are relevant for the Ostomy Community The threshold has been introduced to prevent Ostomy business from signing up and spamming their links then toddling off into the sunset never to be seen again This way at least we know that links are being recommended out of member belief in the services or content of the website linked too rather than a financial desire to increase their own business turnover The Ostomyland Games Arcade is in testing And it s proving very very addictive The arcade will launch on Tuesday 8th June with all members of the 500 club and the 150 Bar and Grill gaining a three day and one day head start starting on June 5th and June 7th respectively Currently standing at over 25 games the Ostomyland Games Arcade is just a bit of fun for the community All games have high scores linked to the members accounts names The top three scores in each game are attributed a trophy The members with the top three amount of trophies are the Games Arcade Champions Once launched you can expect the occasional competition to see who gets the highest score in a game and also the arcade software has the possibility for leagues as well Finally IPB 3 1 has launched and I ve submitted the upgrade ticket to Invision so any day now the board will be updated to IPB v3 1 In fact it might well be active by the time you are reading this The Chat Room Its a busy time for the chat room We ve made the decision to move to our own IRC Server so that we gain complete control over the running and operation of the room The Jpilot Java Chat program on the main site had to be retired due to the program no longer being in development and the security certificate having expired Java Chat access to the chat room is still available but only via the message board for now One of the benefits of hosting our own IRC server is that we can control which files go on the server meaning we can host the Jpilot Java Chat on the same server as the IRC server software This removes the need for the java chat to have a security certificate as connections via java from files on the same server is automatically deemed secure The move to our own server irc ostomylandchat com will be in the next couple of weeks Once launched we ll look into resurrecting the Jpilot Java Client as well Hurrah We ve also given ops to Jules Rach Wayupthere and Mauro Congratulations to all four and thank you for agreeing to help us run the chat room I really appreciate it The Main Site Things have been ticking along nicely over on the main site Recent magazine features about Ostomyland from the likes of Coloplast s Charter magazine and the CA Tidings magazine have all helped increase the site s profile hit count and ultimately our community membership I ve just completed work on hosting video files directly on the site without the need to have the video hosted on You Tube where anyone can access the movie and leave hurtful comments behind This means the Ostomyland Video Archive will be launching in the near future but until then you can check out the first test video which is Doug s fabulous Irrigation tutorial If other members have ostomy videos they would like featuring in the archive then we d be delighted to host them for them Finally a total update of the lifestyle guide pages has just been completed Both the online pages and the downloadable PDF ebook guide has been updated with current information about travel and prescriptions and links etc The Ostomyland Wiki Along with our 12th birthday January was exciting time for Ostomyland as it saw the version 2 relaunch of our Ostomy wiki Including a complete software overhaul its now powered by WakkaWiki engine with a brand new more user friendly interface and many more pages of content added The total page count now is over 225 pages which is a lot of ostomy content by anyones book but there are still many more hundreds of pages to write and as with any wiki the members of the public can write missing pages too But so far no one has been brave enough maybe out of fear of breaking something In the Works for Oland I m please to say that everything I listed as in the works in the November 2009 State of Play blog posting has been completed Next up on my to do list is the launch of the board s games arcade and the moving of the chat room over to our new irc ostomylandchat com server After this I will likely be taking a break from updating things for a while But next on my list will be finding someone who make IPB3 themes skins and get them to make one that ties the main site theme into the board so that a more consistent look is achieved across all the various sites in the Ostomyland Network I m also going to be looking towards giving the board s current masthead menu a revamp and include it on ALL the various Oland websites This will also help tie things together visually for the new visitor Main Site Stats Oland been online 4512 days Current Hits 6 302 273 Current Average Daily Hits 01 Nov 09 to 01 Jun 2010 1

  • Ostomyland State of the Community Report - Sept 2011 - blogs_blog_15 - Ostomyland Community
    possibly try to bring some more life to the off topic section which has gone very quiet This might be because of the hidden member loyalty reward forums such as the 150BG getting a lot of the daily member chit chat talk these days Speaking of the loyalty forums because of the board s focus switching more to support these days post counts are not getting to the target levels for the clubs as quick I don t know what to do yet to try to level the playing field The main choices are either reducing the post count needed to access the current loyalty forums 150 and 500 to maybe 25 and 100 respectively Or to open up new loyalty forums for those levels to act as stepping stones to the 150 and 500 Out of the two the latter seems the fairest after all the members in the 150 and 500 clubs earned access to those clubs by reaching those post counts which is a great achievement If I opened those forums up by reducing the post count access then it would diminish that achievement and that would be unfair I m still thinking on this though so it s something for the future and not for the present And I d just like to state for the record that just because I ve said this it does not mean I m unhappy with the clubs In the past it s been intimated that I was and thats totally not the case The Chat Room The chat room is finally having an overhaul We ve used the same IRC system with access via mIRC and or a java based web browser client since year 1 of the site In fact our weekly meetings we re largely the reason that we became so successful until the popularity of the message board community over took it Over the years IRC has lost its popularity as the main chat format on the net Nowadays chat rooms which are hosted directly on a website without the need for IRC servers and extra software are the norm For example Facebook s chat box among your friends etc As a direct result of the drop in popularity in IRC the developers of the third party Java based browser clients we ve used has reduced and finally ceased First our jPilot applet ceased development and then the pjIRC client which we re using now ceased development This means the devs no longer bought the necessary security certificates for their products which left their product still able to be used but constantly giving out security warnings which people had to ignore to connect to the chat with This situation was scaring new chatters away from Oland chat I m 110 positive of that fact And so with the update of the board to v3 2 by Invision as well as an update to their IPchat product we ve taken the step of announcing the closure of our IRC chat room and the launch of our new IPchat room There s a on the board already which covers what this means for all our chatters be they Java jPilot pjIRC or mIRC users so I wont go into all that again here other than saying the changeover date is September 14th and from that date there is one way and one way only to access the chat room and that will be via the new Chat tab on the message boards menu IPchat is powered by Ajax which powers the Facebook chat plugins It s incredibly fast loading and smaller in download size Most users wont notice it loading Im sure And whilst it doesn t have all the features of IRC such as Stats pages and Pooh the bot it has all the important stuff like ops private messaging ignore and so on We had a test of the IPchat about 6 months ago I think it was and it was very successful and the feedback from that convinced me that it would help more new blood into the chat and enable more people to enjoy reap the benefits of that The Main Site The main site continues to play the part of being most peoples first impression of Ostomyland With that in mind I felt the site s look needed to look more professional and less bloggy which is a hard task when i we re not professional in any way shape or form and ii the site is powered by WordPress the world s best known blogging software In July the new look launched and I m pretty pleased with it I d still like to be able to ditch the over all blog feel of the site one day but in the meantime I am very happy with the simplicity of Wordpress for authors articles writers If I had the money I would invest in having a professional webmaster write a new look for the site to give it that AAA look and feel along with a simple CMS entry submission system so Kathy and co can continue to submit articles without needing any HTML or coding knowledge the 1 plus in WordPress book if you ask me Content wise we ve been delighted to welcome some more ostomy related companies to our Manufacturer s section including Trio Healthcare who s products particularly impressed me personally after trying their samples The biggest bug bear that I have with the main site at the moment is that it s on a separate server to the forums and more importantly doesnt have the forums built in to it I ve been looking at lots of portal add ons for the board which would allow me to integrate the main site content on to pages within the board s package but sadly either the software was utterly confusing to use or just didnt do the job well enough and so look terrible I ll keep looking
