Frequently asked questions

There is no limit for that.
We don't have such plans
Your netboard is totally your own web space. You can put everything unless it violates the Terms of Service.

Just post the link, which Google suggests you for the document sharing.
You can use tags to quickly filter posts on the netboard (e.g. #level1 or #level2). Just start any word with "#" to create a tag.
Mosaic alignment makes your netboards fancier and more compact
We have recorded a short video to demonstrate the difference between default and mosaic alignments.
By the default netboard.me tries to fill empty space to make the board to look as a fancy Web Page.
Sometimes strict posts order is required. For this case you can use Ordered or Notes alignment.
The difference between them is height equalization which is not performed with Notes alignment.
To switch an alignment you need to enable Edit mode, open Customize tab, select main netboard area for customization and chose an option from alignments menu.
Trophy score is calculated automatically basing on the type and amount of content, number of followers and votes.

Click right mouse button on the content you want to post (link, image, selected text, free space on the page to post a link to this page, etc.) and select Post to netboard from the appeared context menu.
By the default co-author has limited ability to edit your netboard.
He/she can make new posts and delete previously added posts.
You can give more options to co-authors (customizie netboard theme/layout and/or edit other users content) on the netboard's settings screen.
Co-author will gain access automatically.
When you switch your account type to Organization you get an ability to register own users and create users groups.
It's free just like personal.
The free plan includes 10 users of the organization.
You need to upgrade from the free plan to the paid plan if you want to increase the number of users (student and teachers accounts) you can create in your organization.
In your Settings
You should open Account tab of the setting screen.
Email address is optional for users created within Organization.
A user who has never logged in is marked as inactive.
After the first successful login the user is marked as "Active".
Only users of yours and friendly Organizations
In case the user has the Supervisor role, her/his followers can also collaborate with her/him.
Internal netboards are accessible only by users within your organization.
You can allow the access for friendly organizations, giving the Internal trust level to your friendship.
Internal netboards can also be shared, just like Private netboards, to open access for specific users or groups.
Owners can establish friendships between their accounts.
Friendship allows users of friendly organizations to collaborate (share, follow, vote, comment, etc.) and to access each other.
Once Friendship is established, it's possible to create common groups with users of the friendly organization.
Users of the friendly organization with "Internal" trust level can access your organization internal netboards.
Only account owner can request a friendship of another account.
You should click "Friendship Request" button on the profile page of the owner of another account.
Only two Organization accounts can establish a friendship.
In your Settings
You should open Friendship tab of the setting screen.
Once you publish a netboard to the group it creates or updates Group Library.
Group members see published netboards in the Library section and receive updates on these netboards changes.
Currently we support following user roles:
Regular User - can't publish content to the Web and her/his profile is accessible only by users from the same or friendly Organization.
With Web Access - users with this role can publish content to the Web and create access links to own netboards. Users profile are open, but only users of yours and friendly Organization can collaborate with them.
Supervisor - has almost the same rights as an account owner. Supervisor can't create or edit other supervisors but can create and manage other users and groups. Supervisor profile is open and her/his followers can collaborate with her/him.
There are two possible reasons:
The netboard is private or does not have enough content to be shown.
There is a rating (see Trophy score question) threshold which is used to prevent empty and incomplete pages from being displayed.
