Revision as of 09:08, 30 May 2020

Following are things that someone, somewhere thinks would be nice to have on the new WordPress blog, but are not yet planned to be ready when the Second Switch occurs.

75th Trombone’s suggestions

  • Visual indication of new comments on posts
    • Highlight posts with new comments since last visit?
    • Note of who posted the most recent comment on each post?
  • An "Alert me when new dynasty begins" feature that actually works
  • Active/Idle tracking improvements
    • Automate lists with profile field
    • Automate profile field based on actual activity
  • Things to make dynastic transitions easier
    • The Elementor page builder and planned smiley features should cover most parts of this, but maybe there will be others
  • Now that we’ll have an easy way to make and design standalone pages on the new site, we might consider moving some things from the wiki to the main blog? It would make sense to have, for example, the FAQ on the site instead of on this external thing. Maybe there are other examples. But this is mostly my nerdy design instincts telling me this, and since the wiki is always going to be super important to BlogNomic, there's no technical/practical reason to resist linking off to it, unless everyone agrees and sees no downsides for certain pages.

Others’ suggestions

The automated vote counter. God I miss sparrowscript Josh (talk) 21:51, 29 May 2020 (UTC)

I have a proof of concept! ...Written in Python! ...And which I've just realised doesn't correctly handle deferentials with no imperial vote but a prior for or against vote. Darn. Tantusar (talk) 02:22, 30 May 2020 (UTC)
