I’m proud to announce a fun new tool to our website called, Pixs. Basically, Pixs is a way for people to upload and share photos of their favorite idols. It’s also a convenient way to organize all the millions of photos online into neatly sorted photo albums. I think the best thing about Pixs is that it also keeps track of trends and ranks photos by popularity. Right now there’s about 1000 photos uploaded to Pixs. With the help of the Ningin community - people like you - we hope to build the largest database of Asian idol photos on the planet starting first with KPOP artists. Why don’t you check out Pixs now and then come back and read more about it below. More »
Ningin has been super active lately. We always seem to have multiple events at the same time. If you take a day off, you’re most likely going to miss something. Take today for example, we have three events ending: The Great F’ing Giveaway: Beast Airline Concert Goods Photo Set, Prize Votes: B1A4 Let’s Fly Mini Album, and the KPOP Idol-Off 2: Sungmin (Super Junior) vs. Micky Yoochun (JYJ). Plus we just released the details of Mixr Legions Test #5. Crazy right? It’s almost too much to keep track of. So we added a little “Events” box on our homepage. It’ll tell you what events are ending and how much time is left to participate in them. Now, hopefully, you’ll never miss another Ningin event! More »
Ningin is a big site with lots of things to do and lots of fun features. I understand that it’s hard for new users to know all the cool things that Ningin has to offer right away and to get help when you don’t now how to do something. We’ve relied on guides and FAQs which, useful as they are, do not cover everything. Today I’m adding a new feature that I’m hoping will go a long way to helping increase the user-friendliness of Ningin and other Mixr sites. Say hello to your new Support Ticket System! More »
Team Wonton seems to have figured out the recipe for success. They’ve taken a commanding lead over their closest competitor, Team Dumpling, with about a week left in this beta test. Those two stand at 80 and 42 respectively. Team Sushi is still hanging in there at 25. Kudos to Legion General Rosey for whatever she’s doing! As big a lead as Team Wonton has, there’s still plenty of time for anyone team to win this round of Mixr Legions. Between the upcoming Legions MLG match, the soon to be added addition to Voices, and the new Mystery Box, we got a lot of ways to score points. Oh I never mentioned the Mystery Box before? What could that possibly be? More »
Today I am happy to unveil a new feature that I’m personally very excited about, Ningin Voices. In short, Ningin Voices is a community blog where any one of you can post to it. There you can share your thoughts, opinions, artwork, photos, and other musings. And for you effort, we will give you Reward Points to use in our Reward Center. Essentially, blog and you can earn free stuff. We’ve always been about rewarding people for their contributions to the community, this is yet another way to do so. More »
Continuing our long line of creative and unique giveaway ideas, allow me to introduce the Mixr Reward Center. In short, it’s yet another way to earn free stuff on Ningin and the other sites in the Mixr network. However, it’s much more than that. It’s a new system of giveaway that is points-based which offers us numerous flexibilities in coming up with new and exciting contests as well as allowing you guys to pick and choose the exact prize that you want. What this means for you is two things: More »
As promised, a new way to score EXP: rating blog posts! Across the network, you should be able to see a way to rate blog posts between the end of the post and the beginning of the comments. Rating a blog post is simple, click on the number of stars you think the article is worth. 1 star is the lowest. 5 is the highest. Judge the article based on the the quality of the writing and how much you liked the post, not how much you support the artist or whatever the subject of the post is about. More »
This is yet another way to win prizes on Ningin and might I add, a very novel and innovative way to give out prizes on a news site. It’s intended to reward high level users (10+) and provides a means for people to win prizes that they truly want/need/gotta have/will die without. As you already know, we give out a ridiculous amount of prizes each month, but we still have way more users than prizes to give out. We want to make sure we have lots of different ways to win something that rewards both the most active users and the new users as well. This obviously is intended to reward the most active users. Read on to see how it’ll work. More »
Facebook Connect is this cool feature that allows you to use your Facebook account to login and interact on all sites within the Mixr network. To put that in another way, all Mixr sites are connected via a common login and now you can use your Facebook account as that login. You’ll be able to comment, interact, gain EXP, invite your Facebook friends to BlitzNation, and have your activities on BlitzNation posted to your Facebook feed.
Keep in mind that this is a complex and deep integration of Facebook and the Mixr system. There might bugs every now and then so consider this Facebook integration to be in a beta stage. If you do find bugs, just fill out our contact form with as much detail as possible.
