I'm most pleased that the red "New" indicator is back.
meta: Slashcomments implemented
I think it would be helpful to put the effect of the labels in the dropdown like "Normal +1".
I've been "moderating" various users to try to figure what the values are and what triggers the Score: label like "Insightful", "Normal", etc. when you have multiple points.
So, what are the values?
My reaction to your first sentence was "I know, awesome, right?" even though you clearly didn't mean it that way.
Because it is not only insightful, but IMO underrated no matter how many votes it gets. However, I don't think you point total changed...
What about an 'agree' option? I wouldn't want a 'disagree' option because that would produce unnecessary negging, but I think agreeing would be better than having to either comment or go with 'insightful'.
did anyone else have to do one of the prove that your human words to post. Those are going to start really pissing me off soon
1000 comments per page option. Nice touch.
How do we view page 2 (and previous ones) of the message board now? The links to those pages don't seem to work properly.
It seems like a reddit-like commenting system is something more Drupal sites would want.
Why not open source it through the Drupal site? Even if you pay for it, by open sourcing it, more eyes will be on it and it'll likely be better.
Does anyone else feel kinda judgemental/bitchy with all these new moderation options? I just mod'd someone for being offtopic... and felt like an asshole :/
For some reason I've lost the ability to moderate on every thread. Would this be due to someone moderating both my posts in this thread (and many other seemingly innocent posts) troll? Or is something wrong with my computer/network?
EDIT: And this post appeared at score 0, as opposed to score 1 for the other posts. Very much making it look like this is karma related.
This is the second post of yours I noticed was grayed and at zero. The other comment about trolling was actually moderated as trolling, which seemed ridiculous, or possibly a joke, so I plussed you back up to one.
Edit: so a random troll is running through the boards marking your posts troll... Haha...great. :/
Thanks, I can moderate again. Now I'm off to help out the other victims...
I feel somehow trite selecting funny for a plus. Almost like I've made the joke too obvious.
But I like how your own posts are in maize. That combined with the "new" returning should make scrolling through much easier.
Those two things definitely help a lot. If we can keep them and bring back post numbers, that would be great.
but there are FAR too many options. You could cut it down even just to something like Good, Bad and Ugly. Good, Bad and Troll. Whatever. I don't think all the specific explanations are necessary: if a post has good votes, I'm curious enough to read it; if it has bad votes, it's hidden and I don't need to read it. The Troll option could just make it easier for you to aim the banhammer.
In other words: scientific precision (eight hundred specific moderation options) isn't needed where blunt force (up/down/troll) can make it work.
Yeah, some of these options are too much and end up being a little confusing. If you call a post "Overrated," are you saying it's bad, or just good but not great? What about "Underrated" - is that good, but not quite "Funny"? And "Normal" - is that a good thing?
"Good", "Bad", and "Troll" would seem to work fine.
Oh...wait. I guess that's not quite what you meant.
my little comment drop box has apparently disappeared.. is anyone else having that issue? It was working about 10 mins ago and now is nowhere to be found
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
I for one think it looks great.
When I post a new comment, it comes up as zero even though I've not commented on that thread before. Thus, it is auto-collapsed because obviously zero is less than 1. I don't understand why this is. Any help with that?
Any chance you can change the skins/color for the comment outline? On my computer (OS X, Mozilla 4) it's a really really light grey and very difficult to differentiate between parent and child comments, especially when certain threads are several comments long w/ several different levels. Something slightly darker (maybe the blue from the header) would make it much easier to see which comments are at which levels.
Really not cool to see that team in ohio's color all over mgoblog. just saying.
I like it
