I want to optimize a kind of page that prompts the user to either login if the user already has an account or register otherwise.

I wonder if this would be the right place to ask about Google Analytics advice. If not, just let me know where it would be good to ask.

I have setup events for when the user arrives to the page, clicks on one of several possible login buttons (username and password, Facebook account, Google account, etc) or clicks on the register button.

To measure the conversion I would like to see from all of those that arrive to the page but did not click the login buttons, what is the conversion rate of those that register.

Basically I need to measure Registered / (Landed - Logged in).

Is there a way to measure this with Google Analytics or do you recommend some other solution?

Ideally you would send the new users to a different thankyou page and onboarding process.
How you determine that really depends on the application. It could be as simple as playing musical chairs with login times and whether you have a last login stored.

Enneagram user types versus Bartle and other gamification user type models

Has anybody tried to compare the Enneagram user types with other user types typically used in gamification models?

It seems there is some overlap but not complety.

I just announced a new gamification initiative. The idea is to use an artifact that I call Champions and Fans.

http://www.slideshare.net/manuellemos/alavancando-audincia-usando-gamification-afiliados-brasil-2013/34

The idea is to put the best of the best in competion but at the same time they form teams that need to collaborate to win the prize.

In this case the teams are formed by players of the same country. If the country as whole wins, all the players of the same country win.

Additionally non-players are expected to also help cheering for the best of their countries, just like fans of sports teams.

In the annoucement I wanted to try something new. Use the hero journey like narrative to engage the target audience to listen to the story to the end, enjoy and spread it.

The story tells about a message that I got that there was a problem with the site quality. Therefore I went on a journey to another "world" to solve that problem. I had difficulties but got help from super-users that joined forces to solve the problem.

The cool part is that I am practically telling that the site super-users are the heros. I tell that anybody can be one of those heroes if they follow what I invited them to do.

Coincidentally I met +Gabe Zichermann personally in GSummit meetup event in Brazil and we talked a bit about this.

We were commenting that there seems not be many gamifiers using narrative or anything like the hero journey to engage people in gamified environments.

I am not sure if I am on the right track. Lets see how well this works.

Meanwhile you can watch the video to check the storytelling approach.

Sim, já tinha lido sobre isso. Existem duas coisas para lidar com stress. Uma aceitar que stress é normal e lidar com uma atitude positiva. A outra é menos óbvia, que é a socialização. Consta que a socialização ajuda a pessoa a lidar com stress devido a substâncias que são passadas no cérebro.

Existe um video que explica isto. Não tenho aqui à mão, mas se houver interesse eu posso procurar.

What are the best JavaScript specific blogs with RSS feeds?

In the past there was planet-javascript.com aggregating feeds from several interesting JavaScript blogs but now it seems to be dead.

So I decided to aggregate several interesting RSS feeds in http://feeds.feedburner.com/planet-javascript but for now there are not many feeds in there.

What other blogs and sites do you recommend to aggregate in this feed?

Currently I am aggregating these feeds:

https://brendaneich.com/tag/javascript/feed/
http://www.jspatterns.com/feed/

Using Composer to Install JavaScript, CSS and Images Under the Web Document Directory

By default Composer installs all package files under the vendor directory. If you want to install asset files in the Web document root directory, you need to resort to another solution.

This Asset Manager package is a plugin that extends Composer to install any package files outside the vendor directory.

Additionally, it can also read the user names and passwords from a configuration file, so you do not have to enter them every time Composer retrieves packages from repositories that may require authentication, like PHP Classes and JS Classes.

Read this article now to learn how to take advantage of these features of this Composer plugin.
