How does a person without email register on the survey site?
If a person that lives or works within an hour of Bristol does not have an email address or access to the internet, they can visit Bristol Rising Community Liaison Mark Walerysiak at the City Hall Renaissance Downtown office. Mark can register them on this site using a proxy/nonfunctional email address, which would be their first and last name (as one word) followed by @bristolrising.com, thus Toby Jones would be email@example.com. They would also then choose a password that only they would easily remember (i.e. their first pet).
How does a person without email like ideas on the survey site?
Mark can then sign them into the survey site and allow them to ‘like’ their ideas right at the center. They now also have the option of logging into anyone’s computer (i.e. a family member’s) as long as they remember their proxy email address and password.
Can a family member ‘like’ on behalf of family members?
Experienced internet users can represent up to three other family members (and no more, to avoid any suspicion of “ballot stuffing” by anyone) by becoming a Liking Agent and liking ideas for them.
How is a Liking Agent verified?
Mark needs to meet the potential Agent in person, whether it’s at an event, meeting or at the Center. Or, the potential Agent can get confirmation from any Renaissance Downtowns staff member, who will then notify Mark beforehand that he’s got the green light to register the Agent’s family members, after which Mark then confirms with the potential Agent before proceeding to next steps.
How do you verify the people that a Liking Agent is representing?
Latoya needs to either meet family members in person or the Agent shows the her a copy (not to keep) of their current ID with Bristol Rising address (or any kind of similar tangible evidence) for each family member they wish to represent. Or, an Agent can introduce family members to a Renaissance staff member, confirm that they’re an agent needing confirmation of those family members, and have them relay the information to Mark, who then provides confirmation to the Agent before proceeding to next steps.
How does an Agent actually like for others?
Each valid family member is registered on the site by the Admin, providing their first and last name and answering the five simple profile questions, just like everyone else who is already registered on the site. The Agent is then provided with the login info (email and password) for each family member. The username of each family member is that family member’s email address. If they do not have one, Mark can create a proxy username as previously described. The Agent can change this at any time by logging into the particular family member’s account and editing any of the profile info, including email address.
Can an Agent only represent family members?
An Agent can represent a non-family member if they send a written description to Mark (mark[at]bristolrising.com) of at least 100 words as to why they should be authorized to do so. Otherwise, people can start to easily take advantage of such privileges.
