Lifehackered and Uncluttered

Following the success of being Uncluttered last Friday it appears that we've just been Lifehackered (I guess that's a word). So welcome everyone!

Temporary Turbulence! Hold Tight!

Hi guys - we are currently experiencing a little turbulence due to quite a load on the server at the moment....we are working on getting MyFolia back to its usual self right now. Thanks for your patience!

Update: we are just rebooting and bringing the server back up....almost there!

Update 2: We are back! Yay! We'll be watching the situation tonight as we go....

Getting an Oops page?

Hey all - just a quick update to let you know that the site is temporarily down (no, it's not just you!) and we are working on getting it back on line. Shouldn't be too long - we'll keep you updated.

...and we are up once again. Sorry about that!

Review of MyFolia on!

We got a great review of us on this week...a big welcome to all of our brand new members that found us from this site - we even (briefly) tipped into the popular list because of you guys! Woohoo!

New Feature: Is there a folia gardening group in your local area?

We now have a handy dandy map to see if there are any local groups in your area. If there isn't any groups near you yet, why not be a trailblazer and create one?

New Features: Invite-O-Matic & New Navigation

We've got some nice new features for you this week:

Invite-O-Matic: We've finally created an page that lets you send invites to friends and family. We've linked it all in with your own personal invite page - so if and when they join, you'll get a message letting you know they've arrived and a little "invited by" link to you will appear on their profile.

New Navigation: Again, a long overdue improvement to the site is brand new navigation that makes navigating through your gardens and plants a whole lot easier. We think it's super cool - Check it out!

Updating the site!

We are just in the process of moving to nice new shiny servers - we'll be up again in the next couple of minutes. We'll keep you posted :)

Update: we are now waiting for the changes to propagate across the interweb - some people may be able to now see the site. If you can't see MyFolia yet, we should be visible very soon...

Update 2: We are fully moved and have just unpacked the boxes. Welcome to the new server!
