We did our first ever global staff meetup at Catalyst Ranch in 2010. It was such a great venue. You guys are in for a treat, you can see bits of it in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wdt0qyS0mpk&list=FLJr72fY4cTaNZv7WPbvjaSw

That video is like an 80s TV show intro where the show itself IS the intro.

Great looking venue!

lololol. We all found it so funny when we saw the video. Adam Everett Miller made it and sent it around and we were lolfest 2010 in the office. :D

Yeah the venue is awesome. Really colourful and creative. Plus they have a kitchen there and made awesome Caribbean food for us. What more do you want?

Lol – you can also see Sean Hodge (old editor of FreelanceSwitch and current editor of the Tuts+ Business hub dancing at the end).

Hey guys,

Thanks for letting us know about this. The reason that the search rankings were a bit funky for certain terms is because we weight search results not just based on the relevance to the term, but also on factors like the number of successful deliveries, customer reviews etc. Thanks to your feedback, the devs dug into the weightings of all of those different factors and have made some tweaks which means search results should be a lot more relevant to what’s being searched, while still taking into account factors like deliveries and reviews etc. WIN!

We’ll be deploying in the next few hours, so you should see much better search results soon (eg: searching for “roll-up banner”, will actually return the appropriate services at the top).

Really appreciate the feedback! <3

Jords

Hey barreoblique,

Sorry to hear you didn’t get a reply :( That’s no good. If you let Studio support know who you dealt with (the person who didn’t reply at all, and the one who stopped answering) they will follow up with the providers, as we expect them to be responsive. If you still need a hand customising your theme, your best bet would be to look for a service that has really great recommendations from other customers, and people who have a quick average response time (you can see this information on their service page).

If you end up writing to our support team, I’d be happy to approve a 15% off discount as a once-off goodwill gesture because of your poor experience with Studio. Just mention in your email that Jordan approved a discount and they will shoot it over to me. :)

Hope you’ll give our providers another shot, and again – sorry you had a poor experience.

Take care! Jords

Thanks for the reply Jordan, that’s good to hear it’s a Pro and not an Air :)

Yep! I’m glad my mistake wasn’t the other way around :P

Hey guys, this was my bad. I provided the wrong copy for the newsletter. Derp! It’s actually a MacBook Pro 13” with Retina Display – like it says on the landing page.

I feel silly. I’m just gonna go show myself out now. :P

I have a fibre connection 100mbps down, and use Netflix/Hulu pretty regularly. Last month we used about 300GB. It was actually more usage, but Steam traffic is free with my ISP and doesn’t count. Otherwise would be much higher.
