Loop: Scooploop Tech Support

  • Introducing Local Loops

    Hello everyone,

    we would like to announce a few changes to the local section of the site. To keep in line with the recent changes to Scooploop and to give users more control over what they see and how they use Scooploop, we will be transforming the local section to include loops also.

    Users will be automatically assigned to these local (neighbourhood) loops based on their current location. Users can also join additional Local Loops allowing them to widen and customise the local feed to suit their needs.

    We have taken the decision to make this change to allow you, the users, more configurability and control over what you see and how you use Scooploop, meaning content has increased relevance and is more useful to each individual.

    Local Loops will initially be moderated by ourselves; however, moving forward, we will be offering the moderation to local users relevant to the loops.

    As this is a big change there may be some bugs that appear, we will be working hard to fix these as and when they appear so please do bear with us.

    We hope you enjoy the change and look forward to hearing your feedback.

    Have a great day.

    • @An... I've barely seen any postings from people in the Bromley area. So far I've put this down to th..

    • @Pa... I've posted quite a bit about my local area, things like vaccinations, blood tests etc but..

    • @Pe... This is the thing, if no-one joins Bromley then I'm basically posting to myself.

    • Just looked on Local, then Hayes - and I'm the only member!

    • @Se... Snap. Maybe you can moderate yourself 😂

    • @An... I don't think I must be saying much at the moment as there's no posts ....

    • @Pe... Thank you it did work and moreover I understood your guidance.

    • Crikey, I'm impressed with that, @Le... ! It was written in an awful hurry!

    • @An... - yes, I quite understand, and that has always been a bit of a Catch-22 problem: no-one posts,..

    • @Pe... That would be a good idea

    • @Sc... very sorry, I think this is a total waste of time. I like other have now found I have ..

    • @Sc... Sorry these changes are a headache.

    • @An... I've now gone for Bromley Common as the Petts Wood option is the Orpington BR5 area and doesn'..

    • @Ve... I agree. The designated areas are rubbish.

      With the new local loops the idea is to creat..

    • @Se... No, there was another ad in it this morning

    • @An... - I had four or five - all removed by admin.

    • @Sc... I have just looked at the 253 local loops to Bromley Common and I'm more confused. The..

    • There are at least 5 loops for Greater London - confusing

    • @Bo... I live in Greater London and there are more than 5 loops in the Bromley area alone.

    • @Ve... So do i but it's a huge area so what loop do you join ? it doesn't say East West, North South..

    • @Sc... I don't want to tell you your job. But would it not have been better if we had our loc..

    • @An... I couldn't find an option for Bromley only Bromley Common. Strange system !!

    • @An... if our current location was enlarged as a default there would be no need for all of this fluff..

    • @An... - I think a choice of alphabetical or by distance, and a search facility. No doubt all these w..

    • @Pe... Maybe it was launched a bit before it was ready

    • My local Hornchurch group and my two loops I moderate are enough for me. Why would I want to trawl t..

    • @Da... Because I would like to see what is happening 3 miles from Bromley

    • @An... I’m not knocking Scooploopers that find it useful but I find it OTT.

    • @Da... Doubtless things will improve in time but at the moment it's a silly system of having to join ..

    • @An... - Maybe, but they have been gradually rolling out and refining changes to the site, which is m..

    • @An... - I agree it's silly having to join loads of loops, and I don't think that's the intention.
