Blog entry Update on the new Freerice

08 September 2010

Hi everyone,

On September 7 we launched the new version of Freerice with exciting features based on the feedback we have received from you over the years. We introduced the ability to sign up, track your totals, invite and find friends, create and join groups, and a rankings page.
The new version was so successful that the sudden increase in number of visitors has crashed our servers. We upgrading our servers and working furiously to resolve the situation so that you can continue to enjoy the new features. Please stay tuned! Thank you for making Freerice what it is today.

if you wanna get there click on a corner that said "Freerice 2.0" or something aboutFreerice 2.0. Then, you see the sign up button? click on it and put in whatever is mandatory.

@Ecofriendly - the developers are working on this problem, in fact I think it is now resolved. Are you still having this problem?

@Uttam and @Curtis Henderson - unfortunately the two versions are running on different systems and on the old version your total was related your computer. On the new version, your total will now be associated with your profile. You will not be able to keep your old total, however you will now be able to see your totals ranked compared to others.

@shastings - thanks for your interest in supporting Freerice. What about setting up a group for your classes for each subject and holding tournaments with others teachers and their classes. If that goes well, you could hold a school-wide competition?

Often when I am playing my total will go up, but on the left of the screen, where the graphics and the number are, as I answer questions correctly, it seizes to change. This wouldn't happen to have to do with the new version, would it?
