Come meet and mingle with Mark Pincus and the whole Tribe gang. Music will be provided by Tribe’s famous hoard of Polyamorous Firespinning Vegan DJ’s. A good time? I guarantee it!

Tribe.net was one of the first to get YASN denizens out and about, being social in RL and now, as part of tribe’s recent reboot and to celebrate the new spirit coming out of tribe’s offices they’re at it again.

Tribe is Back!

With little fanfare Tribe.net is back online. Well… almost online. Here are some screen shots from today’s “reboot.”

Donut freak out
Tribe’s offline message from earlier (and maybe again later) today

We take it back
I figure that’s the users’ blood dripping there?

And don’t forget tribe’s letter to the
which starts on a optimstic note:

It’s a new day for Tribe.net.

Thanks to recent management changes, we, the employees, are taking back the site and are happy to announce some real improvements (based upon the tons of feedback you’ve given us).

and ends with promise of free beer (personal interpretation here…)

So, what’s next?

Y’know, we don’t exactly know yet. But we are looking forward to being around a long time, and making sure we listen to our users.

If you’re in the San Francisco Bay Area, keep an eye out for our upcoming Tribe REBOOT party announcement, and come have a drink with us.

In the meantime, get started using your new customizable home page, and let us know what you think!

(in case that link doesn’t quite work and for posterity, here’s a screen shot of the entire letter)

There’s no doubt that tribe is changing. In the last couple of weeks we’ve seen more signs of life than in the entire year preceding that. The new tribe stopped taking itself too seriously and is back to listening to users. I’m looking forward to playing with the new customizeable homepage, if it’s anything like the profiles and the descriptions I heard from tribe employees, it’s gonna rock! So here’s to a new-old tribe, a fresh attitude and cool features!
