Pseudolonewolf`s Avatar Minor Site Changes Sun 12th Jul 2009 3:45pm

Category: Site Updates

I'm making some minor changes to this site, mainly relating to comments.

First of all, please go to the Edit Stats page and choose your country from the list there. This will show your country's flag next to your posts and on your profile; otherwise your location isn't shown at all.

I'm currently making a reply system for individual comments; I'll edit this when I'm done.

If you encounter site errors, it's me working on things.

EDIT #1: You can no longer post if you're not logged in. Currently, this is just while I work on the comments system, but I MAY end up keeping this because it solves a few security and spam issues, and it's not like getting an account is hard.

EDIT #2: Message centres!
You can now reply directly to comments, and people can reply to yours. When you get a reply, it'll appear in your MESSAGE CENTRE, which can be accessed by clicking the 'n messages' thing which used to serve for just PMs.
You can reply to comments directly from the Message Centre, or from the page they were on, but when you do reply, the message is removed from your Message Centre. You can also choose to 'mark as read', so the message just disappears from your Message Centre without you having to reply.
If you've used deviantART, you'll be familiar with this.
It's still under construction, so only the basics are in place at the moment. More details - like the ability to see the post that the message was a response to - coming soon, as I work on them.

Is this going to also fix the earlier problem with PMs not being sent? I'd love to be able to send PMs to people other than myself. :)

I was just working on this very thing, though I don't actually know what's wrong with it because it's not what I originally thought.
I THINK I've perhaps fixed it now, but it'll need thorough testing, I suppose, before I can be sure. So only time will tell, since it seems like the errors were based sometimes on delays between starting and sending PMs, or something.

Other than that, pseudo can do whatever he wants to without his internal doubts questioning every action he makes, putting him into a mental nightmare where everything he does is wrong.

Er, I mean, you don't have to be unique for the sake of it if it's beneficial to the creation.

While you're on the topic of site redesigning, there are a couple things I have to say....
-Some of the countries don't have working flags, yet, like the Isle of Man (not sure if you're aware of this, but, just saying, in case it's a glitch)
-I feel like the 'Add your own comment:' box would be more convenient if placed at the top of the screen, also since newer comments show up at the top as well..
-When you're logged in and you click Join, it still takes you to the account creation page, instead of saying you're logged in.
-The PM system is still broken, though you're certainly aware of that... just wanted to remind you to check that out, or something.

My only concern is that... you're kinda conforming your own site to the rest of the sites that you have used... I know that most have Reply systems, but we've done fine without it... as well as the 'n Messages' thing... which you even said is similar to DeviantArt..
It kinda removes the uniqueness of this site, and that's what attracts me here, really... I'm just saying, I don't like how this site is slowly changing to become more like the rest of this sort, eh. Just a personal thing, which'll probably annoy you, or something. But keep in mind that you should keep most of this site unique, as the name suggests, and get over the 'this website/forum is so nice, maybe I should add these features to FH!' thoughts..

The chances that people are going to actually join from the places with no flags are very slim indeed... The Isle of Man, for example, is tiny and obscure.
Of course, annoyingly enough, loads of Americans think that they should choose flags of countries they're not from just because they don't like to say they're American... Hmm.

I've actually loved the deviantART 'message centre' sort of thing for years now, since I first saw it... It could be said that the message system itself was one of the most appealing things for me about that site. I've wanted to add it to this site for AGES, but I've never had the motivation and I've never been sure how to actually do it.
It was mainly added now though not just because it's a swanky new feature, but for the actual *practicality* of it... Often when replying to comments on news posts, people don't know who I'm replying TO since I don't use names. Direct replies like this make it more likely for me to give people responses.
And when things like FHO Adventures come out, people can know when they get comments on their own Adventures, etc.
