Tell the community what you think of another's post or proposal. Score the post with one to five stars, one being least liked and five being most liked. Posts with consistently high ratings will be promoted with the possibility of being highlighted by the White House. Consistent high ratings of posts over time will lead to users receiving escalating badge levels.
When you create an account, you can search for people by name or user name, import friends from other networks, or invite friends via email. If you don't want to do that, follow some of the people we've suggested. Once you've found your friends, ask them to be your friend to start getting their updates.
See a list of people you are friends with by clicking on the Friends link on your profile or the link on your home page's top right corner.
It's up to you. Your friends read your updates, and anyone else who comes across them in a search. Your La Plaza profile is public by default; if you're hesitant to have strangers read your updates, protect your profile to approve friends and keep your updates out of search. All proposals or ideas sent on the "Ask the White House" page are public regardless of your privacy status.
Yes, you can. Make sure you have updated your privacy settings to make your profile private. If you have already accepted the user as a friend, you can simply remove them from your friends. If you block someone, they won't be able to see your posts or send you any messages. If your account is public, they'll still be able to view it, but they won't show up on your friends list. If it is a spammer you are blocking, thanks! Please report all instances of spam or violations to La Plaza Support by contacting us.
Direct messages are private messages sent from one La Plaza user to another. You can only send a direct message to someone that has accepted your friend request. When you receive a direct message, we save it in your direct message inbox, accessible from the Inbox tab in the header. Set your email preferences to notify you by mail if you have a new message.
Nope. Once it's out there, you cannot edit it. You can delete a post by clicking the trash icon on the right end of the post, but you can't make changes.
Please report any spam or violations on our "Report a Violation" page. La Plaza also encourages you to not accept friend requests from users that engage in spamming activities.
Accounts are suspended for Terms of Service violations or spam investigation. Read more about this here.
Under the "Update Profile" link you will find your real name, username, and email address. Type your new email address into the correct field. When you have entered your new email address in the email field, click 'Save' at the bottom of the page. A dialog box will then appear asking you to confirm your La Plaza password. Enter your password in the box and click the 'Save changes' button.
Then you will need to confirm your new email address. To do this, log in to your new email's inbox. You should see a new message from La Plaza. Open it and click on the confirmation link in that email. You should then be directed to your La Plaza account. Your change is now complete!
Warning: If you do not complete the confirmation process above, your email will not be changed.
Changing your name(s) is easy! Visit your La Plaza "Update Profile" page to change either your real name and/or username.
