Get Satisfaction Champions: Making Our Community Even Better!
May 26, 2011
You might have noticed that there’s been more activity in our Get Satisfaction forum lately.
If you’re not familiar with it, Get Satisfaction is a great place where not only the TypePad Support Staff can help you with any questions or issues you might be having, but your fellow TypePad subscribers can too! We love to help out our subscribers and we also want to help foster TypePad as a place where everyone helps out everyone else. We really want to see TypePad develop as a community and we think that this is a great place to start.
To help encourage everyone’s participation, we’re going to begin a new program called Get Satisfaction Champions. If a member of TypePad and our staff sees you being particularly helpful, we’re going to mark you as a Champion on Get Satisfaction and also give you some free TypePad time applied to your account to thank you. Being helpful could consist of answering someone’s question before the support staff has a chance to, starting a topic to give people great ideas to use on their own blogs, or even something else entirely. Be creative! Anything that you think might be helpful, won't just improve our community and the sites of your fellow bloggers, it may earn you some free TypePad time as well!
We really do think of TypePad as a community and we’re striving to make this a better place for all of our subscribers. We encourage all of you to become Get Satisfaction Champions and help our your fellow TypePad members!
So if I HAVE to use facebook to use this, then what is the point of even using this when I can just use facebook?
I saw a sentence that said, "You might have noticed that there’s been more activity in our Get Satisfaction forum lately."
Is that because this "thing" that you created is convoluted, there is no sort of tour, tutorial or getting started section and that you just dump people into this. When I tried posting a question to the get satisfaction place, now that wanted to access my fb account. I'm sorry but I don't like a whole bunch crap always linking to my facebook and accessing everything.
How is this better than blogspot? It seems like blogspot is easier and it respects your privacy more.
How can someone sign up for this without using facebook... and again... If I have to use facebook to use this what is the point of this when I can just use facebook?
I'm thinking of getting rid of my facebook account, so if I get rid of it then how do I access this?

To create a new Micro account, you do need to use Facebook. This is a new measure we've implemented to help cut down on spam followers. You can read more about this here:
It looks like you're a guest author on another blog and we are considering other methods to allow guest authors to sign up without needing to use Facebook. We appreciate you letting us know that this is something you'd find useful.
If you'd like to add a password to your account, that will allow you to sign in with your email address and password and not use your Facebook OpenID login.
To do this, simply go to the Account tab and click the "Add a password" link. You can then use either OpenID or the email address/password combination to access your account.
If you have any problems with this or need anything else, you can always email us directly at support AT typepad.zendesk.com.
