Tutorial Link: adding unique codes to MiniCards

June 2007, by Denise | 8 Comments – latest by Richard

Be warned, this tutorial is not for the faint hearted, but it does include the tags ‘social’, ‘shopping’ and ‘wine’, so you can see why it caught our eye…

We spotted it over at the Adegga blog. This is a companion site for the about-to-launch ‘social wine discovery project’.

Adegga decided to use MiniCards to invite 200 people to their site. Each invite needed to contain a unique login code. The tutorial explains how they did this, using a little bit of magic and Google Spreadsheets.

It looks like a bottle of wine and a few glasses of port were also involved in the process, but if you’re a non-drinker, I believe this is optional.

Fotolog shares the love

June 2007, by Denise | 4 Comments – latest by gaby e.

Last month MOO and Fotolog offered free 10 packs for Fotolog Gold Camera members. This month the offer has been extended to include everyone else!

If you have any type of Fotolog account and would like to try a free pack, head over to MOO’s Fotolog page and start making a 10 pack while stocks last.

Got some MiniCards already? Doing something extra cool with your cards? Then post your pictures in the MOOCards Fotolog group. We love to see what you’re up to!

Things to see and MOO Do.

June 2007, by Denise | 2 Comments – latest by Denise

As you might know, we’re a nosey bunch – and we like seeing what people are upto with their MOO stuff. We’ve noticed a couple of things going on recently that you might like to join in too.

The first one is a little complicated. A four step program, ‘The MOO art-project’ launched yesterday. We noticed this a month or so ago, and have been wondering what it might be ever since. (This isn’t an ‘official’ MOO project, its something set up by artists who have bought MiniCards).

The four steps are listed as:
1) Disintegration
2) Back home
3) Left Overs
4) Reunion.

With the launch came the option to sign up and take part in Step one: Disintegration. The artists explain that …Continue reading this article…

Bunnies go MOO!

Well… sort of. As a web user with a love of bunnies from way back (does anyone remember Oolong?), I was very happy to spot these little fellas and their MOO cards. A word of warning though. If you are a bunny fan, don’t follow the links below unless you have a few spare minutes. There’s a lot of very cute bunnies out there

Dude, where’s my MOO?

May 2007, by Denise | 3 Comments – latest by ophelia_in_red

Not content with simply trading MOO’s, some of the people over in the Flickr pool have started something new. There’s now a ‘Where in the world is MOO?’ project.

MOO user Kelly started the project after some discussion in the group, and has built a fledgeling website to track the progress.

The idea is to send an empty box around the world, collecting a MiniCard and a story from each user as it goes. From the discussion it looks like there’s quite a few people signed up so far, so if you fancy joining in, head over to the site, and get involved.

There’s also a little project going on with the ‘I got …Continue reading this article…
