If you are subscribed to the bot (and if not, why not) you may have noticed some nifty new icons show up on the ‘Arrived’ tab that shows the packages you have received so far.
We now have a little shopping card and a little tag icon for every item you have received in the mail. What do they do?
Click on the tag icon and you go to a screen where you can select which keywords you think are the best match for this item. This helps us pick other items that you are more likely to like. Now if you like/dislike a package, the bot also knows to associate the item with certain keywords and will update its profile for you accordingly. You can use the arrows at the bottom to cycle through the different items you have received. This is part of our Herculean effort to improve the bot’s product-keyword database. The keywords provided by lots of sellers are quite spammy (read more about that here). So we are adding new signals in order to improve the bot.
Want to order more of a particular item? Click on the little shopping cart icon and you will get the simple form to the left. Let us know how many you want and where they should go. This is new so we are processing orders manually. You will get an email confirmation from us before the order is finalized. If you want a particular color/size or have questions about buying more of a particular item you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
What do you think of these changes? I’m looking for new ways to get data on packages into the bot, so watch this space!
