Procrastination Destination: Don’t Miss that Connection!

Seen someone on campus wearing the most flattering parka? A friend bring a smile to your face when you really needed it? Crushing on that special somebody but don’t see them around much? Good news, everyone! There’s a site for that.

Up and Coming

Springing up sometime over the Thanksgiving break, the I Saw You phenomenon has finally reached Wesleyan! Great for those who have not partaken of the Zuckerberg Kool-Aid and less depressing/trolltastic than the ACB, “I saw you Wesleyan” allows you the option of posting about a missed connection, ranting about your crush, complimenting strangers, and even e-mailing the site’s manager if you think a post is about you.

Straight from the front page:

Ever shared a moment with a stranger.. but never acted upon it? Post a missed connection! because you never know. and nothing will ever happen until you try.

Check out Harvard’s I Saw You, and MIT’s. Brings to mind “real world” missed connections sites like Craigslist, for which there is also a comic book (coincidentally named, “I Saw You…”).

Since 2012, Wes Compliments has been making the young folk of Wesleyan go “aww” and “oh my!” with good vibes every few days, crowned Wesleying’s “Feel Good Facebook Profile of the Year” for 2012. Keep up the good stuff, you covert complimenters. Now with over 2,300 friends, straight from their Facebook description:

This is a social project that was originally started by students at Queen’s University and is also experiencing growing success with Ryerson University, Wilfred Laurier University and Washington University in St Louis. With their success, we’re hoping to spread the joy to the Wesleyan campus. Simply send us a compliment for someone in the Wesleyan community and have it published here anonymously. Your name will be kept anonymous. Keep in mind that hateful or rude remarks will be completely disregarded. Spread Happiness!

It’s That Time of Year: Wescam’s Back

cyberlovin'

It’s that time of year again. Blossoms are blooming, pollen fills the air, and everyone’s a hot mess.

You know what that means: Wescam is here. It’s the end of the year and for just a little while, the power of the Internet is here to help you connect with those beautiful seniors who are leaving soon. The site’s pretty much the same as the last two years. Underclassmen can add seniors, seniors can add anyone.

All it takes is an account with your Wes email. Explanation from the developers themselves:

wescam lets seniors find other students on campus and other students find seniors. add usernames of people you want to meet up with (they don’t need to already have a wescam account) and if you both add each other, you’ll be simultaneously notified!

one other thing: if someone adds you and you haven’t added them, you both have the opportunity to anonymously message the other person to find out more about each other. we’ll also give the other person a fake username so that you can identify them easily in your conversations. so you can ask them whether you’re both in the same class or how they know you. then you can try to add them to see if you’ve guessed correctly!

WeScam: Back in Action

No Regrets, Since 2008.

Not sure how the Comp Sci department can help you get laid during Senior Week?

WeScam, everyone’s favorite website for “meeting other students over senior week,” is back in action. The coding and general rules are the same as last year—in short, underclassmen can only add seniors, seniors can add anyone. The logic, in short: you’re graduating, so who cares? You need to sign up on WeScam to add other students; you don’t need to be signed up to get an email notification when someone adds you.

More details from the FAQ:
