Re: Feature: Auto hide. Change: show node vote counts to all, not just logged in users. (CSS class)

in reply to Feature: Auto hide. Change: show node vote counts to all, not just logged in users.

Where exactly do you want these posts to be "marked"? ... ?

And in case of root nodes

  • In their category listing like SOPW
  • In the monastery gates
... ?

Discipulus suggestion about font size is here and I further elaborated about the already available CSS classes like .nnt-line-minusminus for RAT

The IMHO easiest implementation might be adding one (or several) more CSS class reflecting "worstness".

The actual default behavior - at least for anonymous visitors - could be left to the default style and any logged in user could choose to override it in his stylesheet settings.

possible changes could effect

  • visibility / display
  • font size / color / ...
  • background color / image° ...
  • a blur filter on top
and could be easily maintained and adjusted later, for instance for differing tastes or design changes.

Would this fit your requirements?

EDIT

UPDATE

Plus: A voluntary revealing could be easily implemented in JS

Minus: search engines would still see the content.

Summary: Not a replacement for Reaping, just a more flexible parallel mechanism which doesn't cause interference with consideration.

    Using CSS to allow users to implement their own "hiding" solutions is easy, and practically a no-brainer. However, it only helps logged-in monks. That's why I'm not focusing on this branch of the total solution. It's easy, and monks are smart enough to do whatever. It's the anonymous monks I'm concerned about. CSS is not part of any solution there.

    I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.

    Thats only if the default anonymous view is the same as the view for search engines -- no technical reason for this to be the case

      I think adding additional CSS classes is far easier in the context of this framework than special cases for bots.

      And I don't see a reason to "auto-hide" posts from bots, that's what consideration is for.

        Disagree (respectfully, of course!) re lack of reason to auto-hide.

        If a node is so bad (misleading, false, gawd-awful, horrifying bad practice, etc) that it needs to be hidden, it (IMO) needs to be excluded from what bots sweep up and pass on to the innocent -- with the PM reputation suggesting the node is a valid suggestion.

        I think adding additional CSS classes is far easier in the context of this framework than special cases for bots.

        Of course css is trivial on the easyness scale, but bots don't care about css,

        but its not like creating a bot view in "pm/everything" is that difficult ("copy/paste" anonymous view )

        And I don't see a reason to "auto-hide" posts from bots, that's what consideration is for.

        But that is part of the proposal by marto/jdporter
