Love ItLove It

Expanded let's make our site better (second version)

Thanks to everyone that voted yesterday! Today we have many more (adding the ones from the comments). I also broke communication from the admins into a couple of options. This is the last post where you can vote on everything. Remember, all of these came from one of your co-authors on the site, so please don’t belittle or say nasty things about any one of the asks. The next post and last in the series will be the compilation vote on your top four. But this is your chance to vote for the ones that you think should be carried forward. Only the top five vote-getting questions will be carried forward. I will, of course, send this post to the admins with the poll results on Wednesday!

How many of these things impact you? I know that not having access to drafts and draft posts has changed a lot of you (I forgot to include it in the first post, my apologies). It is included now! In the comments, let me know what improvement/use case there would be for the drafts folder. What do we need to be able to do with the content in that folder?

Social media style blocking is the intent of blocking users’ questions. If you block a user on Twitter, Facebook, or others, they cannot interact with you at all. That blocking, if enough people block someone, also causes the site to contact the user to ask why so many people have blocked them.

I will end with returning the edit function. I know there are many older posts that people would like to edit, people would like to re-add the pictures back to. Based on that, I would propose the following. Return the edit button, but once you do that, the post becomes snew. You don’t lose the comments, but you don’t go right into the top commented list. That way, jobs that are edited can shine, or not shine on their own merits.

Thanks all.

  1. Well, they have decided that he will do the surgery in June. They are replacing two heart valves. It’s probably a good thing that I was not involved in any of the decision makings. We do have to provide his very expensive medications and take them to the hospital as they won’t use what his doctor requires, unbelievable. But I won’t say a negative word to him.

  2. I answered almost all the questions in Yes. Since you are our computer science teacher, I have a question that is not clear to me. When I share my facebook posts in stories and have about 25 people saw and liked this post. Does this affect my viruses? Or should I open the post itself in virily?

  3. I would like them to do a few things other than have the draft option. I need a button to save my work as I write.

    I don’t like my posts to disappear, three posts have gone into limbo in the last couple of weeks.

    Don’t use different yard sticks fro different folks. My post had a quote and it was pushed to drafts, but there are some posts with only quotes in them.

  5. This over 8 megs image suggestion keeps sneaking in, but won’t heavier photos make the site even slower?

    As for drafts, I wish they come back to their normal state. Saving, editing, and publishing whenever one is ready.

  6. I said yes to all questions except for the last one. High-resolution images would impact the speed of the site. We are not selling our photos for print anyways.

    Imagine this if 100 people would view 8MB images (same or different) at a time. That’s 800MB that’s going to clog-up the bandwidth

    • the assumption, of course, is that the browser shares more than the thumbnail in the process. The browser doesn’t.
      the argument would be more fitting to say 4 megs times 1000 pictures costs less per month by a lot than the cost of 8 megs times 1000 pictures.

      🙂
      thanks for voting!

  7. I can’t answer the fifth question because I’ve never blocked anyone on social media.

    I answered “Yes” to number six despite the fact that I had helped some people who wished I had commented on their posts.

    All other questions I answer with Yes.

  8. Umm, whatever works for you works for me. I don’t have enough brain left to try and figure out what is best here. My plan is to go with the flow as long as I have friends and interaction here.
