If you have used ChatterHigh before today, Sept 10th, 2013, you will notice things have changed!! We have changed the home page to include the live engagement map. This will show icons and details on questions being answered at various schools. You can now earn badges in ChatterHigh. This will give you benefits in terms of using your points! You can now donate points so that ChatterHigh donates cash to Free the Children! This is under 'Make Change' in the Use Points area. This Discussion Forum has also changed. You can now start topics that are not connected to one particular institution. Bear with us over the next few days as we test and fix the inevitable issues that follow a launch. We hope you enjoy these new features!

BUG: the "home" link on the page links to http://chatterhigh.com/dashboard, which gives a 404. The new look was a surprise but it's really good!

Hi Owen! Noticed you have done some donations to Free The Children. What do you think about that feature?

Hey there! I love it! Great way to give to a great cause! Very smart addition to the site! I just feel that the conversion system is confusing. Is it a fixed rate or a varied rate (i.e. the more you donate at a time, the bigger the donation will be)

Just wanted to add another bug report: the "question providers" link at the footer of the page which should link to http://chatterhigh.com/qp/new redirects to http://chatterhigh.com/dashboard. Thanks!

Thanks for the feedback! It is a fixed rate per point. However, as you level up with Badges this set amount per point will go up. We have some other cool ideas that benefit higher level participants but in the meantime you can increase the amount you can donate, plus once you reach certain levels you start to earn commission points that you can 'bank' into your point bank on a daily basis. Cheers, Admin

HI Owen, I had another look at the system. It goes like this - there are 5 badges. They have various weightings based on the value we have given them. This site is primarily about learning, so the largest weighting is given to the Scholarship badge (earned by getting the answers correct.) Each badge has a set level 0 amount, with the highest weighted badges having the highest amount. If you are level 0 (just starting), these 5 amounts total just under 7 cents per 1000 points. Each badge that you level up will increase the set amount for that badge by 1%. There you have it! Cheers, Admin

Ok, so to rephrase, each time you level up a badge, your conversion rate for that badge goes up 1%. So leveling up the scholarship badge will result in a greater increase than leveling up the good attendance badge because the weighting is larger?

Is anyone else finding that the Quiz is a lot slower now than before the upgrade/changes?

Yes, we found it dreadfully slow from the 23rd on. I have been in touch with Lee about it.

Hi Sue, yesterday was a server crash on our end. The programmers seemed to get it going about halfway through 2nd block. During first period today I was at Spectrum and they announced there was a Provincial internet outage. I assumed it was for Public schools. It was better by the start of 2nd block. It seemed to work okay for the remainder of today. Admin - Lee
