  • Share your Headmagnet study lists with others

    by andyman on July 10, 2009

    Now we've made it even easier to share your study lists with others.

    On each publicly shared study list's page, there is now a "Share This" link:

    The "Share This" link pops up a dialog which allows you to share the study list with others via email, or post it via one of the following popular social networks:

    Coming soon: Facebook connect (you'll be able to log in or create new accounts just by being logged into Facebook).


  • Anonymous Study Mode for Headmagnet

    by andyman on May 22, 2009

    No account? No problem.
    Publicly shared study lists can now be studied by anyone, even those who have not signed up yet. This allows you to more easily share your public lists with people who have not signed up yet by just sending them the link to the study list's page.

    Log in if you want tracking
    Please note that if you have an account, but don't log in, Headmagnet will not be able to track the results of your studying. So if you want Headmagnet to model your learning and memory decay, please log in first before studying.

    Coming Soon
    Soon, we'll be adding sharing features that allow you to share your study list on popular social networks such as facebook, twitter, and myspace so your online friends can access them.


  • Onwards!

    by andyman on May 12, 2009

    The Headmagnet project was on break for a few months, due to other urgent projects. However, work is now continuing on Headmagnet.

    We've removed the clunky old captcha (the funky letters you have to type in to proove that you are human) and replaced it with our own in-house invisible captcha (Invaptcha). Now users don't need to try to read twisted letters and numbers, but spammers will still be kept out.

    Unfortunately, we're now counting on ads to help fund the hosting for the site. So please excuse the little ads you might see on some of the pages.


  • Tags and Heads

    by andyman on January 14, 2009

    I hope everyone is off to a great new year. We've added some new features we hope will be useful to you:

    1. Tags: Study lists now can be tagged, allowing you to see related lists, related tags, and explore the tag cloud.

    2. Heads: We'll show the number of people who have added the list to their "head" (study lists they want to keep in their head). This helps you see if a list is useful to other people. If you delete a list that others have in their head, or stop sharing the list, then the list will be removed from their head.
