Threadmarks Upgraded

  1. Threadmarks: Proof of concept

    tirial IT fixer extraordinaire

    We did the Threadmarks upgrade last night. If you look to the right, just above the posts, on a long thread in Scribblings, you'll see a button labelled Reader*. If you click it, the thread will only show the threadmarked story posts so you can read it in one block.

    It is tied into the RSS, so new threadmarks will show on the board feed. We're looking at tying it into twitter so they will get posted out like new threads are.

    (We wanted something good to come out of the evening :()

    P.S. Also found out why several users don't show up despite being active in parts of the site. It is a result of using privacy browsers (e.g. Ctrl+Shift+P in Firefox), which make the boards not tracking them intended behaviour, not a bug.

    *It's right below the Watch option.

    I've added a threadmark to your post @tirial, so users can see the button in use here. Clicking Reader will make my post vanish.

    To go back to the normal view click the button again. It changes to say "View in Thread" which makes this more obvious. In threads with multiple threadmarks there are also << Index >> marks at the top and bottom of each threadmarked post to make navigation easier in Thread view.

    CIAS has upgraded the Threadmarks so new threadmarks in a thread will go out on Twitter with the prefix as a hashtag. This should help webserials and the like.
