====================

-------------------------------
1. Sponsorship Matchmaking Tool
-------------------------------

We've built a system to help match sponsors with the types of events they're interested in working with.  With this tool, event producers can choose whether or not to make their events available, what pricing level would be required, and what kind of sponsorship options they can provide.  Sponsors can then search for events that match their needs or create blanket sponsorships to automatically create sponsorship matches.  From there, we help manage the relationship by verifying the delivery of sponship materials, providing follow-through evidence to the sponsor, and transferring payment to the event producer.

We're extremely interested in hearing feedback on this new system.  We'd love to hear some real world suggestions on what works for you and what doesn't.  If there are any additional features we're missing, please let us know!


------------------------------------
2. Better Documentation Localization
------------------------------------

We know that there's a lot of cross-over between our US, Canadian, UK, and European websites.  We've cleaned up a bunch of language on all of these sites to help localize the content and hopefully reduce confusion over items such as how best to contact us for your location and how much our fee is in your country.  We have additional improvements coming in localization over the next few months as well.


------------------------
3. Default Venue Details
------------------------

A feature that we snuck into the 5.0 release was the ability to set your default venue and contact information.  This information is used to automatically populate your event details whenever you post a new event.  As many of you pointed out, some of the venue information wasn't being saved correctly or posted to new events.  This has been cleared up and should be working correctly now.


------------------------------
4. Improved Scanner Management
------------------------------

In addition to using our barcode scanners with an onsite server, you may now also use our scanners with our website directly.  This gives your scanners access to real-time sales time data.  With this system, ticket buyers can continue buying print-at-home or walk-up tickets all the way through your the end of your event, present their tickets at the door, and have their information validated immediately.


------------------------------
5. Communication Tools Changes
------------------------------

We're consolidating and clarifying our on-site communication tools.  We've added a Public Blog, cleaned up our Producer Forums, and put all of our Release Notes in one place.  Hopefully this will make it faster and easier to find the information you're looking for.


----------------------
6. MySpace and Twitter
----------------------

We added MySpace and Twitter links from our event pages.  Not sure how we didn't have those there before.


------------------------

As always, please let us know if you run across any bugs or typos.  And if you have any tools or feature that we don't currently offer that you can't live without, we'd love to hear about them!  You can email us at support@BrownPaperTickets.com or call us at 1-800-838-3006 24 hours a day.
