You know how the activity streams in the control panel for some individuals gets totally overwhelmed with following/unfollowing activity? I turned it off.
This does not impact the follow/unfollow of your broadcasters on Twitter, that will still show up as it is very useful. This just impacts the individuals following each other within your nation.
If you want it back (or find any other activities annoying), you can always adjust which dashboards any activity is displayed on under Settings > Activities.
You can now set up keywords so people can RSVP for an event just by texting you. Just go into event details for that page and click on "text keywords." You can then specify a keyword, like say GARDEN for a community garden event. Then anyone who texts that to your broadcaster will be RSVP'ed for your event, and will show up in your RSVP listings, your dashboard, the whole bit.
You will need text messaging set up for at least one broadcaster.
See how it works by texting GARDEN to 217-253-8637, which will RSVP you for this fake Abe for Prez community garden event.
You can also add keywords to petition and vote pledge pages in the same way, so when everyone shows up at your event, you can tell them to text SAVETHEGARDEN to sign your petition.
We hope this makes it even easier to organize folks who may not be online as much as we are. :)
NationBuilder Experts shake up politics in Marseille

We built NationBuilder so users with very limited technical knowledge can be quickly up and running. You do not need to know any HTML or CSS to setup your web site or create new pages. All the best practices for activities such as fundraising, petitions, surveys and so on are built-in, so you take advantage of them automatically. Facebook and Twitter are also automatically integrated, so you don't even need to figure out widgets. However, if you have HTML and CSS knowledge, you will be able to create custom themes and change everything down to the last detail.
